It is excited anticipation.

How we have made everything around us bright and free and easy and simple! How we have known how to bestow on our senses a passport to everything superficial, on our thoughts a divine desire for wanton gambling and false conclusions! – how we have from the very beginning understood how to retain our ignorance so as to enjoy an almost inconceivable freedom, frivolity, impetuosity, bravery, cheerfulness of life, so as to enjoy life!

Gail Sheehy – The source of continuing aliveness was to find your passion and pursue it, with whole heart and single mind.
Gary Chapman – Marriages are always moving from one season to another. Sometimes we find ourselves in winter–discouraged, detached, and dissatisfied; other times we experience springtime, with its openness, hope, and anticipation. On still other occasions we bask in the warmth of summer–comfortable, relaxed, enjoying life. And then comes fall with its uncertainty, negligence, and apprehension. The cycle repeats itself many times throughout the life of a marriage, just as the seasons repeat themselves in nature.
Gary Chapman – Nobody has the power to make you miserable . . . unless you choose to give them that power. Choose to enjoy every drop of today!
Gary Zukav – What is failure? We can’t possibly know what failure is. Most people think they do, but that’s because they’re judging how their lives should be and what they need it to be: a success. Who is to say what’s a success and what’s a failure? Do your best. Trust. Relax. Do your best. Enjoy yourself.
Gautama Buddha – O how sweet it is to enjoy life, Living in honesty and strength! And wisdom is sweet, And freedom.
G-Dragon – In order to keep my creativity alive, I just try to enjoy life to the fullest.

Gena Lee Nolin – My children teach me to slow down and enjoy life.
George Bernard Shaw – Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
George Leigh Mallory – So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won’t see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for.
George Santayana – To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.
George Stults – All I wanted to do while I was a teenager was go out and play most of the time and just enjoy life and have fun. I wasn’t big into school, you know, I look back now and wish I would have spent more time studying and enjoyed it more. It’s not for everyone and I didn’t enjoy it that much like going to school and studying – some stuff I did but some of it I didn’t. My attention span wasn’t there.
Georges Duhamel – We do not know the true value of our moments until they have undergone the test of memory.
Georgie Anne Geyer – Follow what you love!… Don’t deign to ask what they are looking for out there. Ask what you have inside. Follow not your interests, which change, but what you are and what you love, which will and should not change.
Gerard Way – One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching.
Giorgio de Chirico – One must picture everything in the world as an enigma, and live in the world as if in a vast museum of strangeness.
Gloria Estefan – I spent 15 years on the road between touring and recording and I never saw anything. I want to enjoy life.
Gordon B. Hinckley – In all of living, have much fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.
Gordon B. Hinckley – Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight.
Greg Graffin – I don’t think workaholic is in the dictionary as an affliction, but it’s obviously someone who has a disease, and I don’t feel diseased by it. I just think that I enjoy life and life has many offerings. I feel lucky to be able to have a forum to share a lot of these ideas.
Greg Graffin – We should enjoy and make the most of life, not because we are in constant fear of what might happen to us in a mythical afterlife, but because we have only one opportunity to live.
Guy Laliberte – I am blessed for what I have, but I believed in it from the beginning. Today, the dream is the same: I still want to travel, I still want to entertain, and I most certainly still want to have fun.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr. – Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Hafez – When all your desires are distilled; You will cast just two votes: To love more, And be happy.
Haifaa al-Mansour – Enjoy life and change things. And maybe by giving examples of people who achieve things, who succeed, who are proactive and being happy and facing their own destinies, rather than accepting what the world throws at them – we should fight! Not like street fighting, but the little act of defiance every day.
Hank Williams III – One of the reasons I sing so much about smoking or drinking isn’t about the addiction, but more so that I’m trying to let people have a good time at my shows and forget their problems. Relax and enjoy. There’s not certain religions or politics sold on them. Just come out, have a beer, have a laugh, good energy from stage and have a good time.
Hans Christian Andersen – Enjoy life. There’s plenty of time to be dead.
Harley Pasternak – Do something active that’s fun. On tour with Kanye and Common, we would have basketball games on a court in every city we went to. With Alicia Keys, we would mountain-bike across Vancouver Island. With Lady Gaga, we would explore all the cool neighborhoods.
Harpo Marx – I don’t know whether my life has been a success or a failure. But not having any anxiety about becoming one instead of the other, and just taking things as they come along, I’ve had a lot of extra time to enjoy life.
Harvey Mackay – Laugh often. Starting your day with a good laugh, or at least a big smile, is as beneficial to your health as it is to your mood. Scientific studies at Northwestern University and Fordham University concluded that laughter benefits the heart, lungs, stomach and other organs. It relaxes tensions, changes attitude, and increases the body’s natural painkillers. And it has no harmful side effects.
Heart Evangelista – Sosy should be a good term. Sosy should be a happy-go-lucky, good vibes girl, wants to make friends, enjoy life.
Helen Keller – It is curious to observe what different ideals of happiness people cherish, and in what singular places they look for this well-spring of their life. Many look for it in the hoarding of riches, some in the pride of power, and others in the achievements of art and literature; a few seek it in the exploration of their own minds, or in search for knowledge.
Helen Keller – Once I knew only darkness and stillness… my life was without past or future… but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.
Henry Beston – The adventure of the sun is the great natural drama by which we live, and not to have joy in it and awe of it, not to share in it, is to close a dull door on nature’s sustaining and poetic spirit.
Henry David Thoreau – If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined…
Henry David Thoreau – Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.
Henry Miller – Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.
Henry Van Dyke – Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars.
Horace – Carpe diem! Rejoice while you are alive; enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; make the most of what you have. It is later than you think.
Horace – Cease to inquire what the future has in store, and take as a gift whatever the day brings forth.
Hugh Hefner – Living in the moment, thinking about the future, and staying connected to the past: That’s what makes me feel whole.
Immanuel Kant – We find that the more a cultivated reason devotes itself to the aim of enjoying life and happiness, the further does man get away from true contentment.
Irvine Welsh – By definition, you have to live until you die. Better to make that life as complete and enjoyable an experience as possible, in case death is shite, which I suspect it will be.
Isabelle Eberhardt – One must never look for happiness: one meets it by the way.
Ivan Lendl – I enjoy life. I always enjoy jokes.
J. D. Souther – I had given myself a sort of early retirement when I left the scene in 1985. All of the people in my family worked until they dropped, including my father. I decided to take a little time to enjoy life. I traveled, built my dream house, rescued a few dogs. My return to music, and acting, was deliberate, part of my musical arc.
Jack Barakat – Don’t get stressed over the little things and make sure you’re enjoying life to the fullest.
Jack Kerouac – Don’t drink to get drunk. Drink to enjoy life.
Jack Klugman – I’m 83 and a half years old and I feel fine. I feel like a teenager but I’m unable to do a lot of the things that I used to do but I enjoy life to the fullest.
Jack Ma – I always tell myself that we are born here not to work, but to enjoy life. We are here to make things better for one another, and not to work. If you are spending your whole life working, you will certainly regret it. No matter how successful you are in your career, you must always remember that we are here to live. If you keep yourself busy working, you will surely regret it.
Jacques Cousteau – A lot of people attack the sea, I make love to it.
Jacques Cousteau – From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.
Jacques Cousteau – The happiness of the bee and the dolphin is to exist. For man it is to know that and to wonder at it.
Jade Bird – I like to keep morale up and not take things so seriously all the time. I enjoy life and laughs but I’m serious about the music. Serious about the craft of songwriting.
Jamal Khashoggi – I’m 60 years old, and I want to enjoy life, and I want to be free to speak for my country.
James Broughton – Life is adventure, not predicament.
James Dean – Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.
James E. Faust – We are bombarded on all sides by a vast number of messages we don’t want or need. More information is generated in a single day than we can absorb in a lifetime. To fully enjoy life, all of us must find our own breathing space and peace of mind.
James Kavanaugh – I was born to catch dragons in their dens And pick flowers To tell tales and laugh away the morning To drift and dream like a lazy stream And walk barefoot across sunshine days.
James Taylor – The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.
James Van Praagh – All things happen in their proper time. Everything in life happens in the time allocated for it. Don’t waste energy worrying about end results. Worrying only distracts you from living day to day and enjoying life!
Jamie Carragher – My family regarded the end of my career as a sign they could really enjoy life a bit rather than cancelling plans on the back of a poor result – it happened many times!
Jane Frances de Chantal – We must be as satisfied to be powerless, idle and still before God, and dried up and barren when He permits it, as to be full of life, enjoying His presence with ease and devotion. The whole matter of our union with God consists in being content either way.
Jayne Mansfield – Sex appeal is a wonderful, warm, womanly healthy feeling . . . it comes only from inside, it’s from nothing that’s manufactured. It has nothing to do with measurements or lipstick color. To me, it’s cleanliness, and youth, an effervescent desire to enjoy life.
Jean de la Bruyere – Children have neither a past nor a future. Thus they enjoy the present, which seldom happens to us.
Jeb Bush – Florida has its own rhythm, too. People go to work, they watch their children learn and grow and start families of their own. They play in the sun and pass their lives enjoying the outsized blessings that make our state unique.
Jeff Bridges – Live like you’re already dead, man. Have a good time. Do your best. Let it all come ripping right through you.
Jeff Gordon – In our business, just getting to 40 means something…that’s why I think sometimes you have to just live in the moment. You have to enjoy life to its fullest.
Jenna Elfman – My motto is that I enjoy life. I think there’s a kind of simplicity to that way of thinking.
Jennifer Aniston – For the last year and a half, I went from being a crazy workout girl to sort of saying, “My body wants a little bit a of break.” So I kind of stay with more simple stuff and taking walks and not being neurotic about working out and eating right. I started to enjoy life a little bit more. The only downside to that is there’s that couple extra pounds and about 4,000 pregnancy rumors, but you know, other than that, it feels great.
Jennifer James – The best revenge is, of course, a good life. Enjoy yourself, be happy, be successful. It’ll drive them crazy-or you can imagine it does. You’ll feel so good you won’t care.
Jennifer Morrison – I discovered what is and isn’t important to me. I decided I really wanted to enjoy life with someone fun, who can make the best out of any situation – whatever it is we’re doing.
Jerry Hall – I enjoy life, and I think that’s important. Life is so fragile and so fleeting, and it’s over in a minute, and you’ve just got to grab it and do everything and not worry about it.
Jessica Jung – I wish my fans will always be nice to one another. Don’t waste time & enjoy life.
Jessica Simpson – That’s what I need from everybody right now – enjoy life with me.
Jiddu Krishnamurti – Have you not noticed that love is silence? It may be while holding the hand of another, or looking lovingly at a child, or taking in the beauty of an evening. Love has no past or future, and so it is with this extraordinary state of silence.
Jim Carrey – I like to enjoy life, I like to engage in life, so I would say I’m a yes man.
Jim Henson – Please watch out for each other and love and forgive everybody. It’s a good life, enjoy it.
Jim Norton – I’m afraid if I start to enjoy life, the rug will be yanked out from beneath me.
Jim Rohn – Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
Jim Rohn – Learn to get from the day. Not just get through it, get from it. Soak it up. Each day is a piece of the mosaic of your life.
Jimmy Sangster – One can spend too much of one’s life locked in stuffy rooms seeking out obscure truths, searching, researching, until one is too old to enjoy life.
Joan Cusack – I take parenting incredibly seriously. I want to be there for my kids and help them navigate the world, and develop skills, emotional intelligence, to enjoy life, and I’m lucky to be able to do that and have two healthy, normal boys.
Joan Rivers – I enjoy life when things are happening. I don’t care if it’s good things or bad things. That means you’re alive.
Joel Osteen – Every day, set your mind in the right direction. Find something to be grateful for.
Joel Osteen – If you know you have to wait anyway, why not make a decision to enjoy your life while you’re waiting? Why not be happy while God is in the process of changing things? After all, there’s nothing we can really do to make it happen any faster. We might as well relax and enjoy our lives, knowing that at the appointed time God is going to bring his plan to pass.
Johan Huizinga – The things which can make life enjoyable remain the same. They are, now as before, reading, music, fine arts, travel, the enjoyment of nature, sports, fashion, social vanity (knightly orders, honorary offices, gatherings) and the intoxication of the senses.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe – Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe – The misfortune in the state is, that nobody can enjoy life in peace, but that everybody must govern; and in art, that nobody will enjoy what has been produced, but that every one wants to reproduce on his own account.
John Burroughs – Joy in the universe, and keen curiosity about it all – that has been my religion.
John C. Maxwell – Enjoyment is an incredible energizer to the human spirit.
John C. Maxwell – Negative thinking keeps us from enjoying life.
John Cleese – A lot of humour is about just enjoying life and spontaneity and because you make a joke that puts somebody down – we’re always teasing each other. It’s with affection. It’s nasty teasing that we – not all teasing; nasty teasing you cut out.
John Hughes – Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
John Lasseter – Cars’ was about Lightning McQueen learning to slow down and to enjoy life. The journey is the reward.
John Lennon – Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
John Maeda – Amidst all the attention given to the sciences as to how they can lead to the cure of all diseases and daily problems of mankind, I believe that the biggest breakthrough will be the realization that the arts, which are considered “useless,” will be recognized as the whole reason why we ever try to live longer or live more prosperously. The arts are the science of enjoying life.
John McDonald – To enjoy enduring success we should travel a little in advance of the world.
John Muir – Bread without flesh is a good diet, as on many botanical excursions I have proved. Tea also may easily be ignored. Just bread and water and delightful toil is all I need – not unreasonably much, yet one ought to be trained and tempered to enjoy life in these brave wilds in full independence of any particular kind of nourishment.
John Patrick Shanley – Choose Life over the other stuff. Get out of your head. Live. Dress up. Eat. Touch people. Help out. Give up. Love people. Give your best away. There’s more. What’s the problem? Relax. You’re going to die. Throw a party. Eat off my plate. Sing to me. Meet me in the bedroom. Get a massage. Give one. Let your amazement out into the room. Pry open the box you hide your joy in. Be a poem.
John Scalzi – Do what you need to do and enjoy life as it happens.
John Templeton – Counting our blessings can transform melancholy into cheerful mass; laughter and joy are expressions of praise and thanksgiving for life’s glories. When looking at the glass that symbolizes our life, we can view it as half full or half empty. The choice is ours… The more joyful we are, the more attractive we become. When we feel gratitude for our experiences, it becomes easier to see the good that always exists. When we give a smile to someone else, we are likely to receive one in return, and that smile reflects a happy heart that is open and receptive to what the good life has in store.
Johnny Depp – Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.
Joko Beck – Life always gives us exactly the teacher we need at every moment. This includes every mosquito, every misfortune, every red light, every traffic jam, every obnoxious supervisor (or employee), every illness, every loss, every moment of joy or depression, every addiction, every piece of garbage, every breath. Every moment is the guru.
Jon Foreman – When I’m happy, when I’m enjoying life, I’m home, I’m surfing, I’m spending time with my wife, my friends and I’m not thinking about the pain. And then the moment I encounter something that feels difficult, I feel like that’s when, for me, I turn to writing and thinking and maybe a song comes from that.
Jonny Johansson – To be honest, my social life is my work. It’s quite boring to say, but I meet a lot of people, and we have people from different creative disciplines. I enjoy life right now, and I enjoy work.
Joseph Campbell – Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.
Joseph Campbell – Sacred space and sacred time and something joyous to do is all we need. Almost anything then becomes a continuous and increasing joy. What you have to do, you do with play. I think a good way to conceive of sacred space is as a playground. If what you’re doing seems like play, you are in it. But you can’t play with my toys, you have to have your own. Your life should have yielded some. Older people play with life experiences and realizations or with thoughts they like to entertain. In my case, I have books I like to read that don’t lead anywhere.
Joseph Campbell – You don’t ask what a dance means. You enjoy it. You don’t ask what the world means. You enjoy it. You don’t ask what you mean. You enjoy it.

Joyce Meyer – There is nothing as tragic as being alive and not enjoying life… Life should be celebrated!
Joyce Meyer – We will never enjoy life unless we make a quality decision to do so.
Joyce Meyer – Whatever your situation, God wants to heal you, strengthen you, and lead you to a place where you can enjoy life again.
Joyce Meyer – You will never enjoy life if you do not enjoy yourself.
Joyce Tenneson – The most important thing is to try and enjoy life because you never know when it will be gone. If you wake up in the morning and have a choice between doing the laundry and taking a walk in the park, go for the walk. You’d hate to die and realize you had spent your last day doing the laundry.
Judith McNaught – “Do you know why I married you, Philip?” “Presumably you wanted the financial security and social prestige I could offer.” She chuckled at that and shook her head…”I believed,” she confessed somberly, “I honestly believed that I had something to offer you too–something you needed. Do you know what it was?” “I can’t imagine.” “I thought I could teach you how to laugh and enjoy life.” Philip and Caroline
Judith Orloff – Surrendered people enjoy life, relish their personal development, and value their friends. They may have an exceptionally good career and be wealthy, but they are more concerned with meaning and fulfillment. The drive to acquire money and power is a behavior that drains people of their passion and emotional connection to others.
Juicy J – You gotta live life. You gotta enjoy life. I mean, I don’t live on the edge.
Julia Child – A passionate interest in what you do is the secret of enjoying life…whether it is helping old people or children, or making cheese or growing earthworms.
Julia Child – Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.
Karan Patel – I am blessed with a funny gene that makes me enjoy life.

Karolina Kurkova – Simply enjoy life and the great pleasures that come with it.
Karren Brady – The brain aneurysm I had in 2006 put things into perspective. It made me understand what was really important – to enjoy life, take more risks and stop putting things off.
Kate Upton – I’m not going to starve just to be thin… I want to enjoy life and I can’t if I’m not eating and miserable.
Katherine Mansfield – I am going to enjoy life in Paris I know. It is so human and there is something noble in the city… It is a real city, old and fine and life plays in it for everybody to see.
Kathleen McDonald – Overcoming attachment does not mean becoming cold and indifferent. On the contrary, it means learning to have relaxed control over our mind through understanding the real causes of happiness and fulfillment, and this enables us to enjoy life more and suffer less.
Keanu Reeves – Money doesn’t mean anything to me. I’ve made a lot of money, but I want to enjoy life and not stress myself building my bank account. I give lots away and live simply, mostly out of a suitcase in hotels. We all know that good health is much more important.
Keke Palmer – I think people should have fun. And don’t get so down on yourself. Enjoy life and be the best person you can be.
Kendra Wilkinson – While I didn’t have a father around, I did have – and what I want my children to both experience – the ability to explore, experiment and enjoy life as a kid.
Kenneth Branagh – Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more, and don’t get so worked up about things.
Kenny Chesney – I learned from my mom that you should always try to enjoy life, no matter what.
Kerry Washington – I don’t have to be perfect. All I have to do is show up and enjoy the messy, imperfect and beautiful journey of my life.
Kevin Hart – I have good laugh every day. I enjoy life. I’m surrounded by love and positivity.
Kevin Harvick – It’s really not about what you have. It’s about how you’re able to enjoy life in general.
Khalil Gibran – And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
Khloe Kardashian – But I also enjoy life… the more scrutiny I am under, the more confident I become. I am who I am. I can’t do anything about it, and I love who I am.
Kit Carson – Each of us, having received several hundred dollars, we passed the time gloriously, spending our money freely – never thinking that our lives were risked gaining it.
Kobo Abe – Suicide is an escape from life. What is life? An escape from death. This means that each of us must die twice. There is the death waiting for us ahead, and the death that comes pursuing from behind…. Once you are free at least from the death that comes pursuing you, you can relax and enjoy life as you go along.
Kurt Vonnegut – I don’t know what’s going on, and I’m probably not smart enough to understand if somebody was to explain it to me. All I know is we’re being tested somehow, by somebody or some thing a whole lot smarter than us, and all I can do is be friendly and keep calm and try and have a nice time till it’s over.
Laini Taylor – But Hazael only said, “I brought you a present.” Liraz took the flower, looked at it, and then a Hazael, expressionless. And then she ate it. She chewed the flower and swallowed it. “Hmm,” said Hazael. “Not the usual response.” “Oh, do you give flowers often?” “Yes,” he said. He probably did. Hazael had a way of enjoying life in spite of the many restrictions they lived under, being soldiers, and worse, being Misbegotten. “I hope it wasn’t poisonous,” he said lightly. Liraz just shrugged. “There are worse ways to die.”
Landon Donovan – I genuinely want to do my best every day, and I genuinely want to enjoy life every day.
Larry Holmes – I don’t really make plans and I just want to be happy and continue with my business and take care of my wife and kids. I want to sit back, relax and enjoy life.
Laura Esquivel – What has never changed, what is always present and what is, in the end, what sustains us is that energy that I talk about in ‘Like Water for Chocolate…’ that loving energy. Without that, I wouldn’t have had the strength to keep going and enjoy life.
Lauren Miller – That’s the funny thing about life. We’re rarely aware of the bullets we dodge. The just-misses. The almost-never-happeneds. We spend so much time worrying about how the future is going to play out and not nearly enough time admiring the precious perfection of the present.
Leo Tolstoy – The goal of our life should not be to find joy in marriage, but to bring more love and truth into the world. We marry to assist each other in this task. The most selfish and hateful life of all is that of two beings who unite in order to enjoy life. The highest calling is that of the man who has dedicated his life to serving God and doing good, and who unites with a woman in order to further that purpose.
Leonardo da Vinci – Now do you not see that the eye embraces the beauty of the whole world? It counsels and corrects all the arts of mankind… it is the prince of mathematics, and the sciences founded on it are absolutely certain. It has measured the distances and sizes of the stars it has discovered the elements and their location… it has given birth to architecture and to perspective and to the divine art of painting.
Leonardo DiCaprio – You have to enjoy life in the process. It may sound corny, but it’s true. At the end of the day, we can’t always achieve everything that we dream of but you do have to enjoy life in the process.
LeRoy Neiman – ‘Playboy’ made the good life a reality for me and made it the subject matter of my paintings – not affluence and luxury as such, but joie de vivre itself.
Les Brown – In life, friendships change, divorces happen, people move on, others die. Money and jobs will come and go. Live long enough and your health and body will change. It goes with the territory of being human. The fact that you are still here gives you an advantage. Don’t look back. Look straight ahead!! Decide to use all of your knowledge, skills, experiences and your life lessons from your mistakes, defeats and setbacks, to start over again. Life changes. You may not have the same life as before, but you can still enjoy your life!
Lil Wayne – I like people that enjoy life, ’cause I do the same.
Lincoln Hall – These days I love to take in the sunset because every time I do so I remember how lucky I am to be alive. That’s a great relationship to have with the setting sun.
Linda McCartney – I would like them all to enjoy life and try different things until there is something they really like.
Lindsey Vonn – If you go around being afraid, you’re never going to enjoy life. You have only one chance, so you’ve got to have fun.
Linus Pauling – I think every person should be able to enjoy life. Try to decide what you most enjoy doing, and then look around to see if there is a job for which you could prepare yourself that would enable you to continue having this sort of joy.
Lisa Morgan – The bizarre trend in mountaineers is not the risk they take, but the large degree to which they value life. They are not crazy because they don’t dare, they’re crazy because they do. These people tend to enjoy life to the fullest, laugh the hardest, travel the most, and work the least.
Lo Bosworth – Eat your pinkberry and enjoy life.
Logan Lerman – One thing a girl has to have is a good sense of a humor. I’m a really laid back guy who can find humor in just about anything, so my girlfriend would need to be a little like that too. She doesn’t have to be a big jokester, but to me finding humor in things and not taking too much too seriously is a way of enjoying life, so that is important to me.
Louis C. K. – I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored’.
Louis Cole – Peace out, enjoy life and live the adventure, boom.
Louisa May Alcott – In the books I read the sinners are always more interesting than the saints, and in real life good people are dismally dull. I’ve no desire to be wicked, but I do want to be happy. A short life and a gay one for me and I’m willing to pay for my pleasure if it is necessary.
Louisa May Alcott – When I had youth I had no money; now I have the money I have no time; and when I get the time, if I ever do, I shall have no health to enjoy life. I suppose it’s the discipline I need; but it’s rather hard to love the things I do, and see them go by because duty chains me to my galley. If I ever come into port with all sails set, that will be my reward perhaps.
Louise Hart – Play is a universal language. It gives a sense of joy in being alive. It is one of the healthiest things we have in our culture. When we play, we give a gift of joy to another. Happy and joyous family times are a unifying force. They increase closeness and positive feelings. They increase loyalty to the family team. Everyone relaxes and feels more alive. Love just happens when you’re having fun together!
Louise Hay – I relax and enjoy life. I know that whatever I need to know is revealed to me in the perfect time and space sequence.
Louise Hay – I was born to enjoy life. And so it is.
Louise Hay – We sometimes forget that we are God-beings, and that the intent of the Creator was for us to enjoy this thing called Life!
Luci Swindoll – The most interesting people I know drink in life and savor every drop-the sweet and the sour. The good and the bad. The planned and the unplanned… Right in the midst of what seems to me to be a detour from the map, I’m often gifted with something precious and unforgettable. Capturing the moment is a choice, a way of life. It requires us to wake up, live life, and be present-here, there and everywhere. Sometimes that’s scary; sometimes it’s exhilarating.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi – Like the air, God’s Grace is available to us. It is permeating every fibre of Being and the Being of the entire universe.

People are watching the way we act more than they are listening to what we say.

Why should I push myself to be angry or jealous? If I don’t feel good emotionally, I find out what is causing it and I fix it. Then I can recover my happiness and keep going with my story.
Miguel Angel Ruiz – There is no need to justify what we are. There is no need to work hard to become what we are not. We just need to return to our intergrity, to the way we were before we learned to speak. Perfect. As little children, we are authentic. Only the present time is real for us; wo don’t care about the past, and we aren’t worried about the future. We enjoy life; we want to explore and have fun.

If you don’t have all those zillions of tiny successes, the big ones don’t mean anything.

Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps 20. And yet it all seems limitless.
