A Quote by Robert Grudin on freedom, time, past, present, future, action, habit, lives, and life

Free men and women... can think across time, viewing their own lives, inclusive of past, present, and future, as architectural wholes, static in mental space. They can therefore see, as others cannot, the cracks and buttresses of repeated action, the points of stress, the established framework. They are not perfect; but they are less imperfect than we by a full dimension of being.

A Quote by Elizabeth Kubler Ross on denial, death, responsible, people, empty, purposeless, lives, postpone, and forever

It is the denial of death that is partially responsible for people
living empty, purposeless lives; for when you live as if you'll live
forever, it becomes too easy to postpone the things you know that you must do.

A Quote by John Ernst Steinbeck on story, world, humans, caught, life, lives, thoughts, hungers, ambitions, avarice, cruelty, kindness, generosity, good, evil, well, and ill

"I believe that there is only one story in the world...Humans are caught--in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too--in a net of good and evil...A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean question: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well--or ill?"

John Steinbeck (1902 - 1968)

"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?"

A Quote by May Sarton on understanding, facts, lives, and natures

Deep down there was understanding, not of the facts of our lives so much as of our essential natures.

A Quote by Elizabeth Berg on older, lives, diverging, farther apart, crying, and distance

It feels like now we are so much older, and our lives are diverging like those geometry proofs where the two lines never touch, they just keep growing farther apart... This is why I'm crying, the distance from what you feel to what you say, how it will always be like that.

A Quote by unknown on lives, fear, and end

Our greatest fear should be not that our lives will some day come to an end, but rather, that they may never begin.
