The love of posterity is a consequence of the necessity of death. If a man were sure of living forever here, he would not care about his offspring.Nathaniel Hawthorne
For the life in them he loved most living things, But a tree chiefly.
living virtuously is equal to living in accordance with one's experience of the actual course of naturechrysippus
People who talk of the spread of music in England and the increasing love of it, rarely seem to know where the growth of the art is really strong and properly fostered: some day the press will awake to the fact, already known abroad and to some few of us in England, that the living centre of music in Great Britain is not London, but somewhere further North.edward elgar
Buddha's teachings are scientific methods to solve the problems of all living beings permanently.geshe kelsang gyatso
We are inescapably the result of a long heritage of learning, adaptation, mutation and evolution, the product of a history which predates our birth as a biological species and stretches back over many thousand millennia... Going further back, we share a common ancestry with our fellow primates; and going still further back, we share a common ancestry with all other living creatures and plants down to the simplest microbe. The further back we go, the greater the difference from external appearances and behavior patterns which we observe today.fred hoyle
We can best serve the cause of Canadian unity and understanding by living first in and through and then beyond our own immediate traditions.vincent massey
Of course I have no right whatsoever to write down the truth about my life involving as it naturally does the lives of so many other people, but I do so urged by a necessity of truth-telling, because there is no living soul who knows the complete truth; here, may be one who knows a section; and there, one who knows another section: but to the whole picture not one is initiated.vita sackville-west
I can see this, I suppose you could call it, aura of colors that words can't describe around living things. And when something dies the aura fades leaving something that's not easy to look at. It appears empty in a way that makes you feel empty too!mark waid
The test of an abstract picture, for me, is not my first reaction to it, but how long I can stand it hanging on the wall of a room where I am living.john betjeman
Every German soldier must be made to feel that he is living under the muzzle of a Russian gun.vasily chuikov
If you were to destroy in mankind the belief in immortality, not only love but every living force maintaining the life of the world would at once be dried up. Moreover, nothing then would be immoral, everything would be lawful, even cannibalism.fyodor dostoevsky
I could never figure out or probably did not take the trouble to figure out what the great philosophical problems are about. The momentous statements I come across are at best a storm in a teacup. There are quite a number of people who have a vested interest in the stuff, make a noble living out of it, and they conspire with one another to keep it alive.Eric Hoffer
My living in Yorkshire was so far out of the way, that it was actually twelve miles from a lemon.sydney smith
Habits count for more than maxims, because habit is a living maxim, becomes flesh and instinct. To reform one's maxims is nothing: it is but to change the title of the book.
Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.
Holiness is the architectural plan upon which God buildeth up His living temple.
For still in mutual sufferance lies The secret of true living; Love scarce is love that never knows The sweetness of forgiving.
The best general means to insure the profitable employment of our time, is to accustom ourselves to living in continual dependence upon the Spirit of God and His law, receiving, every instant, whatever He is pleased to bestow; consulting Him in every emergency requiring instant action, and having recourse to Him in our weaker moments when virtue seems to fail.
The quality of health care continues to improve, and people are living longer, but these developments mean that we’re likely to eventually find ourselves in a situation in which we’re forced to make difficult choices about our parents, other loved ones, or even ourselves that ultimately boil down to calculations of worth and value.
If there is one place on the face of the earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India....For more than 30 centuries, the tree of vision, with all its thousand branches and their millions of twigs, has sprung from this torrid land, the burning womb of the Gods. It renews itself tirelessly showing no signs of decay.
To the living we owe respect, but to the dead we owe only the truth.voltaire
living artificially in towns, we are sickly, and never come to know ourselves.john muir
