Life Story quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#1. This diary will tell the real life story of my great-grandmother Yasutani Jiko. She was a nun and a novelist and New Woman7 of the Taisho era.8 She was also an anarchist and a feminist who had plenty of lovers, both males and females, but she was never kinky or nasty. And even though I may end up mentioning some of her love affairs, everything I write will be historically true and empowering to women, and not a lot of foolish geisha crap. So if kinky nasty things are your pleasure, please close this book and give it to your wife or co-worker and save yourself a lot of time and trouble. 4. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki

#15. I was getting away with something in my own way. But then I get here and saw you, brain-dead and with tubes coming out of every part of your body. And I realized I wasn't getting away with anything. Just like you didn't get away with anything. You were just born, fucked around for a while, got hit by a car and died, and that's your whole life story right there. You don't win by getting through all you life not having done anything. #Quote by John Scalzi

#16. How concrete everything becomes in the world of the spirit when an object, a mere door, can give images of hesitation, temptation, desire, security, welcome and respect.

Life Story quotes by Brennan Manning
#17. I have a word for you. I know your whole life story. I know every skeleton in your closet. I know every moment of sin, shame, dishonesty and degraded love that has darkened your past.

Because you're never going to be as you should be. #Quote by Brennan Manning

Life Story quotes by Francis Spufford
#19. Taking the things people do wrong seriously is part of taking them seriously. It's part of letting their actions have weight. It's part of letting their actions be actions rather than just indifferent shopping choices; of letting their lives tell a life-story, with consequences, and losses, and gains, rather than just being a flurry of events. It's part of letting them be real enough to be worth loving, rather than just attractive or glamorous or pretty or charismatic or cool. #Quote by Francis Spufford
Life Story quotes by Ali Pantony
#20. I find my room claustrophobic. It is small, but that's not what I mean. It's claustrophobic because I feel like I've been trapped here for so long, this floor forming the centre stage from where my life story is playing out. #Quote by Ali Pantony

Some five decades later, writer Terry Sullivan was inspired by Mary's life story to compose the popular tongue twister : She sells seashells on the seashore The shells she sells are seashells, I'm sure So if she sells seashells on the seashore Then I'm sure she sells seashore shells. #Quote by Shelley Emling
Life Story quotes by Tindell Baldwin
#22. Tell us your life story.' I look up. Twenty sets of eyes looked back. Only forty-five minutes left in class. I wish I could tell them my life story. I would tell the popular girls to be nice, because later in life they'll realize isn't about them. I would tell the pretty girls that looks aren't all they have. I would tell the kids in black that is just a phase and the real world isn't quite so harsh. I would tell the tough girls that getting hurt is part of life. I would tell the pretty boy with the hair swoosh that there will be a million of him wherever he goes next and the thing that will make him stand out is his character. I would tell the girls trying desperately to fit in that one day it won't be so hard. I would tell the in-betweens that one day they'll have a place in this world. Mostly I would tell them there is a Jesus who loves them, a Jesus who knows what thy are going through and has a relationship waiting for them that is more then they could ever imagine. There are so many things I would like to tell this class, but for now they have to take a test. #Quote by Tindell Baldwin
Life Story quotes by Will Durant
#23. The constant steaming in of thoughts of others must suppress and confine our own and indeed in the long run paralyze the power of thought ... The inclination of most scholars is a kind of fuga vacui ( latin for vacuum suction )from the poverty of their own mind , which forcibly draws in the thoughts of others ... It is dangerous to read about a subject before we have thought about it ourselves ... When we read, another person thinks for us; merely repeat his mental process. So it comes about that if anybody spends almost the whole day in reading, he gradually loses the capacity for thinking. Experience of the world may be looked upon as a kind of text, to which reflection and knowledge form the commentary. Where there is a great deal of reflection and intellectual knowledge and very little experience , the result is like those books which have on each page two lines of text to forty lines of commentary #Quote by Will Durant
Life Story quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#24. Your life story is a novel; and people, though they love novels wound between two yellow paper covers, are oddly suspicious of those which come to them in living vellum. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Life Story quotes by Avijeet Das

Life Story quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer

Life Story quotes by Mitch Albom
#27. He was doing what a man does when left with nothing. He was telling himself his own life story. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Life Story quotes by Sarah    Clarkson
#28. A woman who reads is a woman who knows she must act: in courage, in creativity, in kindness, and often in defiance of the darkness around her. She understands that life itself is a story and that she has the power to shape her corner of the drama. #Quote by Sarah Clarkson
Life Story quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#29. Every person writes his or her life story similar to how a musician composes music. Author Milan Kundera noted, 'Without realizing it, the individual composes his life according to the laws of beauty even in times of great distress.' Guided by their aesthetic sense of beauty, a person transforms the intentional and fortuitous events of their life into an expressive episodic motif, which artistic creation assumes a permanent place in the composition of his or her conscious mind. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Life Story quotes by Zee Edgell
#30. Anyone could spare the time, stopped whatever they were doing to watch the funeral go by. It was a custom. It was important to know who had died, under what circumstances, to whom the person was related, and who the mourners were following the hearse, and why they felt the need to attend this particular funeral. There were few events that commanded the total attention of the community as much as a passing funeral. Its size was commented upon, and the life story of the deceased, whatever was known of it, whispered from person to person. It was more than a funeral they watched. In a way, it was a small lesson in community history, and everyone, for those minutes, was a diligent scholar. #Quote by Zee Edgell
Life Story quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#31. When you see and know that your wellspring is an Eternal Source, and not other people around you, or your past experiences, not even your life story, that is when you are able to truly give to others, without running out and without feeling empty. Because I see God in everything that I touch and feel and think and because I believe that He sees me in everything, too, hence I am able to give to others without thinking of myself as limited source. What I have doesn't come from others, it doesn't come from my life story and it doesn't come from a box. What I have comes from a wellspring, an Eternal Source. The good news is that it never runs out, there is plenty for all and for everyone. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Life Story quotes by Lucy Foley
#32. In many ways my life has been rather like a record of the lost and found. Perhaps all lives are like that. #Quote by Lucy Foley
Life Story quotes by Aeriel Miranda
#33. Honestly, being a part of any worthy life story is a goal of mine. #Quote by Aeriel Miranda
Life Story quotes by Demi Lovato
#34. Share your story with someone. You never know how one sentence of your life story could inspire someone to rewrite their own. #Quote by Demi Lovato
Life Story quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#35. The moment the mirror does not recognize us anymore, the cards are no longer in our hands. In effect, we have failed to see to the bottom line of our life story and lost our identity. ("The empty Mirror") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Life Story quotes by Alyson Noel
#36. While we may judge things as good or bad, karma doesn't. It's a simple case of like gets like, the ultimate balancing act, nothing more, nothing less. And if you're deteremined to fix every situation you deem as bad, or difficult, or somehow unsavory, then you rob the person of their own chance to fix it, learn from it, or even grow from it. Some things, no matter how painful, happen for a reason. A reason you or I may not be able to grasp at first sight, not without knowing a person's entire life story - their cumulative past. And to just barge in and interfere, no matter how well-intentioned, would be akin to robbing them of their journey. Something that's better not done. #Quote by Alyson Noel
Life Story quotes by Nick Hornby
#37. It's like everyone's a supporting actor in the film of your life story. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Life Story quotes by Oliver Sacks
#38. To be ourselves we must have ourselves – possess, if need be re-possess, our life-stories. We must "recollect" ourselves, recollect the inner drama, the narrative, of ourselves. A man needs such a narrative, a continuous inner narrative, to maintain his identity, his self. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Life Story quotes by Richard Hell
#39. An autobiography is a life story. It starts when you're born and continues until the end. #Quote by Richard Hell
Life Story quotes by Laura McHugh
#40. I'd told the condensed version of my life story so many times over the years that I could recite it without emotion. When I said the words out loud, they felt like they belonged to someone else. #Quote by Laura McHugh
Life Story quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#41. When you understand, that what you're telling is just a story. It isn't happening anymore. When you realize the story you're telling is just words, when you can just crumble up and throw your past in the trashcan, then we'll figure out who you're going to be. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Life Story quotes by Coco Chanel
#42. How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone. #Quote by Coco Chanel
Life Story quotes by Hannah Arendt
#43. If it is true ... that no one has a life worth thinking about whose life story cannot be told, does it not then follow that life could be, even ought to be, lived as a story, that what one has to do in life is to make the story come true? #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Life Story quotes by Shane Stevens
#44. You want recognition? I mean real recognition? Your life story in all the papers, your face on television all over the country. Books written about you; what you eat, what you feel, what you think, what you don't think. Maybe even a movie about you. Why not? They made movies about all the killers and maniacs I've mentioned, including Chessman. If that's what you want, it's easy. Just go out and kill some people. They don't have to be presidents, they don't have to be big shots. Just kill enough to make a big splash in the papers. Or kill only one or two in a novel way or a crazy way, anything to get the news media interested. You too can be famous #Quote by Shane Stevens
Life Story quotes by Grant Achatz
#45. My life has been such a blur since I was 18, 19 years old. I haven't even had time to contemplate my own life. By forcing yourself to write your life story you learn a great deal about yourself. #Quote by Grant Achatz
Life Story quotes by Rachele Baker
#46. We learn to appreciate what we achieve, no matter how small the achievement, because we do it ourselves. - Midge Rylander in Eighteen Months To Live #Quote by Rachele Baker
Life Story quotes by Steven Furtick
#47. God gives the exact experiences he wants them to have in order to shape the specific destiny he designed for them. #Quote by Steven Furtick
Life Story quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#48. ... so this is for us.
This is for us who sing, write, dance, act, study, run and love
and this is for doing it even if no one will ever know
because the beauty is in the act of doing it.
Not what it can lead to.
This is for the times I lose myself while writing, singing, playing
and no one is around and they will never know
but I will forever remember
and that shines brighter than any praise or fame or glory I will ever have,
and this is for you who write or play or read or sing
by yourself with the light off and door closed
when the world is asleep and the stars are aligned
and maybe no one will ever hear it
or read your words
or know your thoughts
but it doesn't make it less glorious.
It makes it ethereal. Mysterious.
For it belongs to you and whatever God or spirit you believe in
and only you can decide how much it meant
and means
and will forever mean
and other people will experience it too
through you.
Through your spirit. Through the way you talk.
Through the way you walk and love and laugh and care
and I never meant to write this long
but what I want to say is:
Don't try to present your art by making other people read or hear or see or touch it; make them feel it. Wear your art like your heart on your sleeve and keep it alive by making people feel a little better. Feel a little lighter. Create art in order for yourself t #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
Life Story quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#49. Purgatory is where you unwrite the book of your life story #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk

Life Story quotes by Lynda Rutledge
#52. You can know all about a person from the things they collect, the books on their shelves, the chairs in their parlor. … Let me into your house; I could write your life story. #Quote by Lynda Rutledge
Life Story quotes by Merri Lisa Johnson
#53. My life story is structured by reckless reenactments of panic and flight. #Quote by Merri Lisa Johnson
Life Story quotes by Steven Levy
#54. It's your life story if you're a mathematician: every time you discover something neat, you discover that Gauss or Newton knew it in his crib. #Quote by Steven Levy
Life Story quotes by Steve Maraboli
#55. Remember:
It's all in your head ... all of it.
If you don't like the story, change it.
If the people around don't accept your new story; change them. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Life Story quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#56. Another night then,' Mom said. 'Maybe on the weekend we can have a barbecue and invite your sister.'
'Or,' I said turning to Rafe, 'if you want to skip the whole awkward meet-the-family social event you could just submit your life story including your view on politics religion and every social issue imaginable along with anything else you think they might need to conduct a thorough background check.'
Mom sighed. 'I really don't know why we even bother trying to be subtle around you.'
'Neither do I. It's not like he isn't going to realize he's being vetted as daughter-dating material.'
Rafe grinned. 'So we are dating.'
'No. You have to pass the parental exam first. It'll take you awhile to compile the data. They'd like it in triplicate.' I turned to my parents. 'We have Kenjii. We have my cell phone. Since we aren't yet officially dating I'm sure you'll agree that's all the protection we need.'
Dad choked on his coffee. #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
Life Story quotes by Isaac Deutscher
#57. For nearly thirty years the powerful propaganda machines of Stalinism worked furiously to expunge Trotsky's name from the annals of the revolution, or to leave it there only as the synonym for arch-traitor. To the present Soviet generation, and not only to it, Trotsky's life-story is already like an ancient Egyptian sepulchre which is known to have contained the body of a great man and the record, engraved in gold, of his deeds; but tomb-robbers and ghouls have plundered and left it so empty and desolate that no trace is found of the record it once contained. The work of the tomb-robbers has, in this present instance, been so persistent that it has strongly affected the views even of independent Western historians and scholars. #Quote by Isaac Deutscher
Life Story quotes by Helen Mirren
#58. You write your life story by the choices you make. You never know if they have been a mistake. Those moments of decision are so difficult. #Quote by Helen Mirren
Life Story quotes by Mitch Albom
#59. A memoir should have some uplifting quality, inspiring or illuminating, and that's what separates a life story that can influence other people. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Life Story quotes by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
#60. Such was the love of this grandson for his grandmother that two years after the death of his mother, when she herself fell gravely ill, he vowed to her that someday he would try to tell the world her life story.
'But why?' she asked humbly. 'I'm no one, just a girl from the coast'
'But you are everyone, Grandma,' the young Pramoedya told her. 'You are all the people who have ever had to fight to make this life their own. #Quote by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
Life Story quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#61. Begin to write, your heart will flow with sacred words. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Life Story quotes by Barack Obama
#62. My life story is something obviously that belongs to me very personally. And the fact of the matter is that I had choices and chances and opportunities that were provided to me, based on the way I was able to direct my own decision-making. And what I'm working to fight for is to make sure that all women have the ability to do that. #Quote by Barack Obama
Life Story quotes by Lisa Vidal
#63. I did a film called 'Victor' that I'm really proud of! It was a period piece and the true life story of Victor Torres. I play his mom, and it's a very moving film. #Quote by Lisa Vidal
Life Story quotes by Martina Cole
#64. People only know what you tell them.And it was true.People gave out their whole life stories to anyone and everyone without a second's thought.Stand at a bus stop,sit in a strange pub,get banged up,and someone would always give you their life story.It was as if they were trying to prove they existed #Quote by Martina Cole
Life Story quotes by Edward Bloor
#65. History repeats itself only in that, from afar, we all seem to lead exactly the same life. We are all born; we all spend time here on earth; we all die. But up close, we have each walked down our own separate paths. We have stood at our own lonely crossroads. We have touched the lives of others at crucial points, for better or for worse. In the end, each of us has lived a unique life story, astounding and complicated, a story that could never be repeated. #Quote by Edward Bloor
Life Story quotes by Mary Karr
#66. Unless you're a doubter and a worrier, a nail-biter, an apologizer, a rethinker, then memoir may not be your playpen. That's the quality I've found most consistently in those life-story writers I've met. #Quote by Mary Karr
Life Story quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#67. It's worth noting up front that I have always conceived of my mind as a digestive organ. A stomach for processing knowledge, if you will. As a looping, wrinkled mass, a human brain unmistakably looks like gray intestines, and it's within these thinking bowels that my experiences are broken down, consumed to become my life story. My thoughts occur as flavorful burps or acrid barf. The indigestible gristle and bone of my memories are expelled as these words. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Life Story quotes by Charlize Theron
#68. If they ever do my life story, whoever plays me needs lots of hair color and high heels. #Quote by Charlize Theron
Life Story quotes by Rebecca Ferguson
#69. When I first studied Billie Holiday's life story years ago, I admit that I was quite judgmental. #Quote by Rebecca Ferguson
Life Story quotes by Susana Fortes
#70. We always fall in love with a story, not a name or a body but what is inscribed in the man. #Quote by Susana Fortes
Life Story quotes by Charles Martin
#71. If my life were still a movie, this is the part that would end up on the cutting room floor. We were all just fill-ins for a long-running soap opera. The actors changed, but the story seldom did. Certainly not the action. #Quote by Charles Martin
Life Story quotes by Michael Hyatt
#72. We have more control than most of us realize. Each day is filled with thousands of opportunities to change the story of our lives. #Quote by Michael Hyatt
Life Story quotes by Jon Ronson
#73. It wasn't easy to learn about Gustave LeBon. For being the father of such an enduring theory, almost nothing has been written about him. Only one man has ever tried to piece his life story together - Bob Nye, a professor of European intellectual history at Oregon State University. #Quote by Jon Ronson
Life Story quotes by Yayoi Kusama
#74. Certainly, I devote my energy to both telling my personal life story and seeking self- obliteration. However, I will not destroy myself through art. #Quote by Yayoi Kusama
Life Story quotes by Daniel J. Siegel
#75. We must keep in mind that only a part of memory can be translated into the language-based packets of information people use to tell their life stories to others. Learning to be open to many layers of communication is a fundamental part of getting to know another person's life. #Quote by Daniel J. Siegel
Life Story quotes by Harlan Howard
#76. I take a whole life story and compress it into three minutes. #Quote by Harlan Howard
Life Story quotes by Haruki Murakami
#77. Unsure how to answer, I took another grape. Time was no problem for me, but I wasn't eager to hear the long life story of a dwarf. And besides, this was a dream. It could evaporate any moment. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Life Story quotes by Francis George
#78. Our choices have eternal consequences. We can merit and we can sin; we are agents in the story of our salvation. God is not a script writer who will automatically guarantee a happy ending to every life story. God is, however, more eager to embrace us in love and to save us than we ourselves are eager to be saved. We can count on God's mercy; but his mercy does not destroy our freedom. #Quote by Francis George
Life Story quotes by Richard House
#79. And then ... perhaps someone will write a book about making a film about a story that is taken from this book which is taken from a real-life story that was copied from a story in a book. You know? #Quote by Richard House
Life Story quotes by James Wood
#80. There is this strangeness of a life story having no shape - or more accurately, nothing but its present - until it has its ending; and then suddenly the whole trajectory is visible. #Quote by James Wood
Life Story quotes by Julian Barnes
#81. In life, every ending is just the start of another story. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Life Story quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#82. People, walking on the catwalk of indifference and evaporating in a bubble of apathy, may be unconscious of the decay of their emotions and the scattering of their attention that are crucial obstacles to refreshing their mental framework and to topping up the content of their life story. ( "Twilight of desire " ) #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Life Story quotes by Gregory Maguire
#83. Your life story is really about how the hands of history caught you up, played with you, and you with them. History plays for keeps. Individuals play for time. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Life Story quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#84. Do you wait for things to happen, or do you make them happen yourself? I believe in writing your own story. #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
Life Story quotes by Drishti Bablani, Wordions
#85. You are not a story, your life is a story and you
are the writer, write an inspiring one. #Quote by Drishti Bablani, Wordions
Life Story quotes by Alyssa Urbano
#86. For him, she was the evil one; the antagonist to his life story. The reason he was married at an early age.
And to her, he would always be her infatuation gone horribly wrong. #Quote by Alyssa Urbano
Life Story quotes by Lauren DeStefano

#89. In the Buddha's life story we see the three stages of practice: Morality comes first, then concentrated meditation, and then wisdom. And we see that the path takes time. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Life Story quotes by Muniba Mazari
#90. You are the hero of your own life story; and Heroes never give up. #Quote by Muniba Mazari
Life Story quotes by Bruce Sutter
#91. I enjoy being out with the fans, I enjoy talking baseball, but to get up and tell my life story ... I'm not comfortable doing that. #Quote by Bruce Sutter
Life Story quotes by Cathrine Lodoen
#92. When you are turning pages
if you are in the midst of a really good writer
of the very rare kind

his or her voice becomes crystal clear

and all of your own so very still.
They sit down, fold their arms across
your lap and shhhhstillness from within

and from this
in this rare moment

you will be able to observe and then
if you wish
your own story.

Yes, this is what the really rare and good writer does
and how reading can heal your life story. #Quote by Cathrine Lodoen
Life Story quotes by Barry Bonds
#93. I'm a very private person. My life story isn't for everybody. #Quote by Barry Bonds
Life Story quotes by Jon Chopan
#94. Many cultures accept the faulty nature of memory. They know even the photograph only gets it halfway right. They believe there is only one way to bring the dead back to life, story. #Quote by Jon Chopan
Life Story quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#95. Nobody's story is written only by himself. In our story, we can always find the stories written by others! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Life Story quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#96. It's easier to construct a more palatable life story-where I can draw straight lines from each hurt of the past to the healing I later experienced-than to face the raw truth. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst

Life Story quotes by Martha Beck
#98. The important thing is to tell yourself a life story in which you, the hero, are primarily a problem solver rather than a helpless victim. This is well within your power, whatever fate might have dealt you. #Quote by Martha Beck
Life Story quotes by Toni Sorenson
#99. Never be afraid to share your story. No one can tell it like you can. #Quote by Toni Sorenson
Life Story quotes by David Spade
#100. When I'm interviewed on Leno, just be funny, period. That's all they want from me. I don't want to tell my life story. #Quote by David Spade
Life Story quotes by Alysha Speer
#101. I choose to write because it's perfect for me. It's an escape, a place I can go to hide. It's a friend, when I feel out casted from everyone else. It's a journal, when the only story I can tell is my own. It's a book, when I need to be somewhere else. It's control, when I feel so out of control. It's healing, when everything seems pretty messed up.
And it's fun, when life is just flat-out boring. #Quote by Alysha Speer
Life Story quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#102. From the chronology of our time perception we keep garnering fetching and enticing instants of our life story, still abounding in our mind. As they emerge like lucky sparkles of our unyielding awareness, we hold them dearly in the treasury of our remembrance. ("Just for a moment") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Life Story quotes by Tammy Mentzer Brown
#103. Remember each new day you get to turn a page in your life and write your own story. So how do you choose to write it? #Quote by Tammy Mentzer Brown
Life Story quotes by Imsophie
#104. One bad chapter in your life doesn't describe your whole life story. #Quote by Imsophie
Life Story quotes by Brennan Manning
#105. We can embrace our whole life story in the knowledge that we have been graced and made beautiful by the providence of our past history. All the wrong turns in the past, the detours, mistakes, moral lapses, everything that is irrevocably ugly or painful, melts and dissolves in the warm glow of accepted tenderness. As theologian Kevin O'Shea writes, "One rejoices in being unfrightened to be open to the healing presence, no matter what one might be or what one might have done." - A Glimpse of Jesus #Quote by Brennan Manning
Life Story quotes by Jacqui Stedmon
#106. Language allows us to represent autobiographical events in the past, present and future; we can imagine events that have not yet happened, that we wish to happen or fear will happen. Jerome Bruner first proposed narratives as the best candidate for how people give meaning to the world, themselves and dominated in our everyday representation of our lives, rather than narrower units that featured in the information processing paradigm at that time. #Quote by Jacqui Stedmon
Life Story quotes by Victoria Mahoney
#107. For me, being on set is no different than being at a dinner table or riding the subway next to someone; inevitably their life story is always more compelling than most ads in magazines and most commercials and reality TV and all the stuff we're sold and told is valuable. #Quote by Victoria Mahoney
Life Story quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#108. My wish has always been to write my own story, to create a life that's worth writing about. But is a story worth anything at all if I have no one to tell it to? #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
Life Story quotes by Esther Perel
#109. When you pick a partner, you pick a story. So what kind of story are you going to write? You are the editors of your life stories. Write well and edit often. And remember ... a life story is not a love story. You can love a lot more people than you can make a life with. #Quote by Esther Perel
Life Story quotes by Garry Fitchett
#110. Time is the cosmic fabric upon which everyone's life story is woven. #Quote by Garry Fitchett
Life Story quotes by E.L. Tenenbaum
#111. We are each the protagonist of our life story. #Quote by E.L. Tenenbaum
Life Story quotes by Kirk Douglas
#112. Life is like a B-picture script. It is that corny. If I had my life story offered to me to film, I'd turn it down. #Quote by Kirk Douglas
Life Story quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#113. Do not just think about the destination when you start the journey or just mind the direction of your journey to the final destination; and do not be carried away by the serendipity and the joy you shall have as you move, for you may never know the vicissitude of life that will arise; be careful, however, of what it really takes to truly end the journey successfully regardless what you shall have or face as you journey so as to have a great journey and a true life story of noble footprints #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Life Story quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#114. But how could you live and have no story to tell? #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Life Story quotes by Judith Krantz
#115. Surely the whole point of writing your own life story is to be as honest as you possibly can, revealing everything about yourself that is most private and probably most interesting for that very reason. #Quote by Judith Krantz
Life Story quotes by Ron Davison
#116. one's life begins when he is born and one's life story begins when he realizes that he was born into the wrong family. I would expand that somewhat, to say that anyone paying attention must eventually have a moment in which he wonders if he has been born into the wrong society. I suspect that you would have to be on some fairly strong drugs to escape those moments when you feel like a Martian. #Quote by Ron Davison
Life Story quotes by John Irving
#117. This is a real-life story, Owen," I said. "It's not a mystery novel." In real life, I meant, there was nothing written that the missing father couldn't #Quote by John Irving
Life Story quotes by Dean Koontz
#118. Her direct stare probed, as if the story of my life were written in my eyes in a few succinct lines that she could read. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Life Story quotes by Dan P. McAdams
#119. People tailor their life stories for particular audiences. The recipient or audience for a story may crucially influence the stories form. Audiences are both social and intrapsychic – we have internalized private audiences. #Quote by Dan P. McAdams
Life Story quotes by Laurie Perez
#120. Crossing the Atlantic on that new day was supposed to be a sharp delineation, a from-now-on demarcation in my life story. What I took off from was not supposed to arrive with me upon landing or ever pulse in me again. From the ocean and sky and the hours in flight, I intended to extract a selective, permanent amnesia. #Quote by Laurie Perez
Life Story quotes by Craig Clevenger
#121. A person's life story is equal to what they have plus what they want most in the world, minus what they're actually willing to sacrifice for it. #Quote by Craig Clevenger
Life Story quotes by Clemantine Wamariya
#122. I have never been Claire. I have never been inviolable. Often, still, my own life story feels fragmented, like beads unstrung. Each time I scoop up my memories, the assortment is slightly different. I worry, at times, that I'll always be lost inside. I worry that I'll be forever confused. #Quote by Clemantine Wamariya
Life Story quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#123. In the secular view, this material world is all there is. And so the meaning of life is to have the freedom to choose the life that makes you most happy. However, in that view of things, suffering can have no meaningful part. It is a complete interruption of your life story- it cannot be a meaningful part of the story. In this approach to life, suffering should be avoided at almost any cost, or minimized to the greatest degree possible. This means that when facing unavoidable and irreducible suffering, secular people must smuggle in resources from other views of life, having recourse to ideas of karma, or Buddhism, or Greek Stoicism, or Christianity, even though their beliefs about the nature of the universe do not line up with those resources. #Quote by Timothy J. Keller
Life Story quotes by Marisha Pessl
#124. Dad always said a person must have a magnificent reason for writing out his or her Life Story and expecting anyone to read it.
Unless your name is something along the lines of Mozart, Matisse, Churchill, Che Guevara or Bond - James Bond - you best spent your free time finger painting or playing shuffeboard, for no one, with the exception of your flabby-armed mother with stiff hair and a mashed potato way of looking at you, will want to hear the particulars of your pitiable existence, which doubtlessly will end as it began - with a wheeze. #Quote by Marisha Pessl
Life Story quotes by Deepak Chopra
#125. satisfying. You don't have to psychoanalyze yourself; you can stop obsessing about your body and dwelling in disappointment and frustration. There is only one principle that applies: Life is about fulfillment. If your life isn't fulfilled, your stomach can never supply what's missing. "What Am I Hungry For?" Everyone's life story is complicated, and the best intentions go astray because people find it hard to change. Bad habits, like bad memories, stick around stubbornly when we wish they'd go away. But you have a great motivation working for you, which is your desire for happiness. I define happiness as the state of fulfillment, and everyone wants to be fulfilled. If you keep your eye on this, your most basic motivation, then the choices you make come down to a single question: "What am I hungry for?" Your true desire will lead you in the right direction. False desires #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Life Story quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#126. Each day hands me a clean sheet of paper upon which to write. Therefore, I would be wise to write without ever having the need to erase. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough

#127. Rip yourself open.
Tell me my life story before I die.

Life Story quotes by Bill Bryson
#128. I just use my life story as a kind of device on which to hang comic observations. It's not my interest or instinct to tell the world anything pertinent about myself or my family. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Life Story quotes by Brendon Burchard
#129. We all have a life story and a message that can inspire others to live a better life or run a better business. Why not use that story and message to serve others and grow a real business doing it? #Quote by Brendon Burchard
Life Story quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#130. We must choose our personal viewpoint. We can embrace a sense of weighty heaviness that comes from knowing that our fate is one of deterioration and death, and our suffering is interminable. Alternatively, we can choose to believe in the unbearable lightness of our being and embrace a world of high-minded thoughts and ideals. The decisions we make are significant regardless if we only have one life to live. We weave our life story out of the choices that we make when confronted with the inevitable opportunities to experience love and friendship and heartache and suffering. During our life, we encounter goodness and evilness, and hope and despair. We must decide whether we accept reality. Alternatively, do we seek to escape the pain that comes from acknowledging the paucity of human existence? #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Life Story quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#131. We are living out the drama of a pathetic story whose pages are smeared with our own handwriting. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Life Story quotes by Gregory Maguire
#132. And of the Witch? In the life of a Witch, there is no "after", in the "ever after" of a Witch there is no "happily"; in the story of a Witch, there is no afterword. Of that part that is beyond the life story, beyond the story of the life, there is-alas, or perhaps thank mercy-no telling. She was dead, dead, and gone, and all that was left of her was the carapace of her reputation for malice. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Life Story quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#133. Ah, now,' the count said casually, 'you must do as you wish, Viscount, because this is your business and you are in charge; but I must say that in your place I should say nothing of all these adventures. Your life story is a novel; and people, though they love novels bound between two yellow paper covers, are oddly suspicious of those which come to them in living vellum, even when they are as gilded as you are capable of being. Allow me to point out this difficulty to you, Monsieur le Vicomte, which is that no sooner will you have told your touching story to someone, that it will travel all round society, completely distorted. You will have to play the part of Antony, and Antony's day has passed somewhat. You might perhaps enjoy the reputation of a curiosity, but not everyone likes to be the centre of attention and the butt of comment. It might possibly fatigue you. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Life Story quotes by Karrine Steffans
#134. 'Confessions of a Video Vixen' is not a book about my encounters with celebrities, or anyone else for that matter. It is my life story, thus far, which just so happens to include some people you may have heard of. #Quote by Karrine Steffans
Life Story quotes by Jill Scott
#135. Anytime you share life stories with other people, you know, you are acknowledging their humanity and kind of accessing some things about yourself, and other people start to expect things about themselves. It's kind of like a fellowship. #Quote by Jill Scott
Life Story quotes by Steve Maraboli
#136. This is my life ... my story ... my book. I will no longer let anyone else write it; nor will I apologize for the edits I make. #Quote by Steve Maraboli

Life Story quotes by Rosanne Cash
#138. On the plane, an eight-year-old with an excess of testosterone keeps running across my feet. Finally I grab him by his T-shirt and say, very sweetly, 'Listen, darling, if you don't stop trampling me I'm going to make you sit on my lap while I tell you my entire life story. Including a lot of details about drug rehab and my divorce.' He goes back to his seat. #Quote by Rosanne Cash
Life Story quotes by Craig Alexander
#139. Like most of us, Shane Niemeyer likes to test his limits. THE HURT ARTIST gave me an entirely different perspective on just how far he fell before becoming an Ironman. His life story deserves to be told and demonstrates what perseverance can do for anyone no matter how hopeless they may feel their situation is. You may never compete in an Ironman Triathlon, but Shane shows how anyone can overcome any obstacle and pursue their dream with passion. #Quote by Craig Alexander
Life Story quotes by Robert Breault
#140. I've lived enough of my life story to know this- Fate writes the book, but you make the movie. #Quote by Robert Breault
Life Story quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#141. A reader can tell if a transcribed story is true because it must contains elements of joy, pain, goodness, and malevolent thoughts. In a true story, not everything fits precisely together; a fortuitous conspiracy of events does resolve all loose ends. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster

Life Story quotes by Shannon Stacey
#144. Max had often heard Laundromats were a good place to meet women. He wasn't sure why, since he wasn't one to speak to strangers while folding his underwear, so he didn't imagine women would be any more comfortable doing so. But he'd tried it anyway, using a comforter that didn't fit in his washing machine as an excuse to spend time in the town's only Laundromat.
After spending ninety minutes listening to the life story of a man who was newly divorced, Max had decided the rumor of Laundromats being a good place to meet women was probably started by a Laundromat owner. #Quote by Shannon Stacey
Life Story quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#145. The fame of his likes circulates briskly but soon grows heavy and stale; and as for history it will limit his life story to the dash between two dates. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov

#146. All my tales are true, drawn from life, and a life story is not a tidy thing. #Quote by Karen Lord
Life Story quotes by Gabrielle Roth
#147. Your body is the ground metaphor of your life, the expression of your existence ... So many of us are not in our bodies, really at home and vibrantly present there. Nor are we in touch with the basic rhythms that constitute our bodily life. We live outside ourselves - in our heads, our memories, our longings - absentee landlords of our own estate. My way back into life was ecstatic dance. I reentered my body by learning to move my self, to dance my own dance from the inside out, not the outside in. #Quote by Gabrielle Roth
Life Story quotes by Ike Turner
#148. They'll probably start working on my movie sometime ... They are doing a complete movie of my life story. It will not be based on any negativity. It will be more about my life, from a kid, how I came up and why I came through. #Quote by Ike Turner
Life Story quotes by Sonia Sotomayor
#149. As you may know from my life story, my cousin who was my soul mate went to a public school. And he died of AIDS. Would I and my brother have been able to resist the lure of drugs in the surrounding schools? Who knows. #Quote by Sonia Sotomayor
Life Story quotes by Elizabeth E. Castillo
#150. God is the Master Author of your life. He has written every page of your life story in His eternal book. It's up to you to turn up the pages and move on with the next chapter or just get yourself stuck in the same content over and over again.- Elizabeth's Quotes #Quote by Elizabeth E. Castillo
Life Story quotes by Julian Barnes
#151. How often do we tell our own life story? How often do we adjust, embellish, make sly cuts? And the longer life goes on, the fewer are those around to challenge our account, to remind us that our life is not our life, merely the story we have told about our life. Told to others, but - mainly - to ourselves. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Life Story quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#152. Sometimes you only get one chance to rewrite the qualities of the character you played in a person's life story. Always take it. Never let the world read the wrong version of you. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder

Life Story quotes by Ingeborg Bachmann
#154. I have only one life story to tell, but Gerda must have several, for although by and large I know her past and know enough people who have known her from a child, when she talks about herself there are an infinite number of deviations, indeed not even deviations, because there is no line from which she could deviate, there are simply a large number of versions and interpretations of her life. When she is in a good mood and becomes talkative, she no sooner thinks of a detail than her life story takes a different turn. #Quote by Ingeborg Bachmann

Life Story quotes by Kris Jenner
#158. You can't write your life story and leave out one of the most important things that happened to you in your life. I think that that would be dishonest, and it would be something people would be very angry about. #Quote by Kris Jenner
Life Story quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#159. Writing is a cerebral journey where the writer molds experience into useful thought capsules and thoughtfully takes recitative inventory of their spiritual depot. The act of personal essay writing is a subtle search to track and discover how a contiguous chain of occurrences links the essayist's case history of rational and irrational behavior. Writing a person's life story fosters acceptance of their prior personal failures and serves to open a doorway to living modestly and harmoniously. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Life Story quotes by Leonita Noviandri

Life Story quotes by Steve Maraboli
#161. Once you start recognizing the truth of your story, finish the story. It happened but you're still here, you're still capable, powerful, you're not your circumstance. It happened and you made it through. You're still fully equipped with every single tool you need to fulfill your purpose. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Life Story quotes by Robert Fulford
#162. When we make stories, when we turn raw events into personal sagas, parables, tales, and anecdotes, we are often struggling to come to terms with one of the inescapably difficult and puzzling facts of existence. Storytelling is an attempt to deal with and at least partly contain the terrifyingly haphazard quality of life. Large parts of life, sometimes the mots crucial parts, depend on random happenings, contingency. A woman turns a corner, meets a strange man, two years later they marry, they have children together – and in twenty years, there are adults walking the earth who would not have existed if that woman had not turned that corner on that day. The human results of that apparently random event may go on for hundreds or even thousands of years, a single stray moment casting its shadow into an unimaginably long future. We can gaze on this fact with wonder; but we may also grow uneasy in contemplating it, because it emphasizes how little we control the course of our lives #Quote by Robert Fulford
Life Story quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#163. Everybody has a story that must be told.
Your life is your story.
Tell your story. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Life Story quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#164. Do not settle for living a version of your life designed by another. You are not meant to be gatekeeper or the holder of secrets and shame. You are here to live free and clear and into your own wide open truth. If you are spending too much time around people who expect otherwise you will begin to notice a feeling of constriction. Sometimes the life we create can be come a cage of our own making. Sometimes we stifle our truths to make others comfortable. Do not sacrifice your own comfort and freedom for that of another. The price you pay for this is too high. Define your own space. Remember your own divinity. You have a responsibility to this existence to live in fullness of your truth and art and purpose. Do not be diminished by circumstance or opinion or judgement. Your story is your own; nobody can write it but you. You hold the paper, you choose the pen, and you write your life story the way only you can. So, if someone tries to build you a box, rip that fucker apart and use the wood to build yourself a stage, then ditch your indoor voice and sing it loud. People are not meant to live quietly in small containers no matter how beautiful. A gilded cage is still confinement. You are a wild child – only the open air of freedom will do. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc

Life Story quotes by Gabrielle Roth

Life Story quotes by Emily Barr
#173. Although I don't know much about anything, I know that I have a story. I know that it is not over. There are shades and shadows of adventures and people and wild new places. Whatever Paris might turn out to be, and whatever Dr. Epstein is able to do, I want to be there to find out. #Quote by Emily Barr

Life Story quotes by Dawn French

Life Story quotes by Andrew James Pritchard
#177. Monsoon Love is a love story with a few comic twists. The idea for this story came to me when I went into the local town of Pokhara with a friend to buy his son a birthday present. We had just arrived at the shops when a heavy down pour began, and as we had arrived on his motorbike and didn't have raincoats or umbrellas so we had to wait for the rain to stop. We were standing under a awning watching the street while we waited, and I noticed this very beautiful young woman walk past me dressed in a t-shirt and jeans with the cuffs rolled half up her legs, but the way she held her umbrella made it impossible to see her face, though with the nice body she had her face must have been just as lovely. Then I though, imagine some guy stuck working in an office, and seeing a view like that every day of the same woman, and falling in love with her despite not seeing her face. #Quote by Andrew James Pritchard
Life Story quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#178. Writing a memoir is a holistic method of learning and healing by placing responsibility for personal transformation on the spiritual authority of the self. Writing a person's life story is useful to gain a comprehensive understanding regarding a person's maturation, distinctive stages of personal development, and the influences provided by their family and society. The writing processes also serves as a catharsis for painful personal events that a person seeks to integrate into their transmuting being. Writing our personal story, we discover new dimensions of our being. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Life Story quotes by Muhammad Imran Hasan

Life Story quotes by Michelle Sagara West
#184. Is there anyone's life story you don't want to know?"
"Not really." His expression was unexpectedly serious. "Because people make a story of their lives.
Gains, losses, tragedy and triumph - you can tell a lot about someone simply by what they put into each
category. You can learn a lot about what you put into each category by your reaction to them. They
teach you about yourself without ever intending to do it - and they teach you a lot about life. #Quote by Michelle Sagara West

Life Story quotes by John Green
#187. So here's how it went in God's heart: The six or seven or ten of us walked/wheeled in, grazed at a decrepit selection of cookies and lemonade, sat down in the Circle of Trust, and listened to Patrick recount for the thousandth time his depressingly miserable life story-how he had cancer in his balls and they thought he was going to die but he didn't die and now here he is, a full-grown adult in a church basement in the 137th nicest city in America, divorced, addicted to video games, mostly friendless, eking out a meager living by exploiting his cancertastic past, slowly working his way toward a master's degree that will not improve his career prospects, waiting, as we all do, for the sword of Damocles to give him the relief that he escaped lo those many years ago when cancer took both of his nuts but spared what only the most generous soul would call his life.
Life Story quotes by Tom Reiss
#188. Alexandre Dumas wrote those lines when he had just turned forty-five and had decided it was time to reflect on his life. He never got past chronicling his thirty-first year - which was well before he had published a word as a novelist - yet he spent more than the first two hundred pages on a story that is as fantastic as any of his novels: the life of his father, General Alexandre - Alex - Dumas, a black man from the colonies who narrowly survived the French Revolution and rose to command fifty thousand men. The chapters about General Dumas are drawn from reminiscences of his mother and his father's friends, and from official documents and letters he obtained from his mother and the French Ministry of War. It is a raw and poignant attempt at biography, full of gaps, omissions, and re-creations of scenes and dialogue. But it is sincere. The story of his father ends with this scene of his death, the point at which the novelist begins his own life story. #Quote by Tom Reiss
Life Story quotes by Brian A. Brown

Life Story quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#191. Language is our identity tool and by using experience, observation, and imagination, we each discover the words that give voice to our lives. To tell our stories is the human method of perforating our isolation tanks, the means to encapsulate what we previously learned, and the mechanism that allows us to enter the universal dialogue of compassion. Sharing the pandemonium of our life's stories full of grime, love, noise, and steeped in emotional chaos is the act that ultimately binds us to our family, friends, and community. All lovers know each other stories. Farmers, villagers, big city hobnobs, and the citizens from all nations share a conjoined thread through storytelling that seriously investigates the collective human condition. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Life Story quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#192. I think that many people do not know what empathy is. They think empathy is understanding their own selves and then connecting with like-minded individuals, who of course will understand them since they all share the same ideas. Empathy has nothing to do with likemindedness; it has to do with being able to feel the things that others feel, even when you do not share the same ideas, life story, or absolutely nothing at all! When I hear someone say, "I don't understand you", that makes me feel sorry for them. I can even understand a rock, and they can't understand me?

Life Story quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#193. The word "coherence" literally means holding or sticking together, but it is usually used to refer to a system, an idea, or a worldview whose parts fit together in a consistent and efficient way. Coherent things work well: A coherent worldview can explain almost anything, while an incoherent worldview is hobbled by internal contradictions. …

Whenever a system can be analyzed at multiple levels, a special kind of coherence occurs when the levels mesh and mutually interlock. We saw this cross-level coherence in the analysis of personality: If your lower-level traits match up with your coping mechanisms, which in turn are consistent with your life story, your personality is well integrated and you can get on with the business of living. When these levels do not cohere, you are likely to be torn by internal contradictions and neurotic conflicts. You might need adversity to knock yourself into alignment. And if you do achieve coherence, the moment when things come together may be one of the most profound of your life. … Finding coherence across levels feels like enlightenment, and it is crucial for answering the question of purpose within life.

People are multilevel systems in another way: We are physical objects (bodies and brains) from which minds somehow emerge; and from our minds, somehow societies and cultures form. To understand ourselves fully we must study all three levels - physical, psychological, and sociocultural. There has long been a division of #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Life Story quotes by Whitney Johnson
#194. Robert Atkinson, PhD, author of The Gift of Stories, wrote, "There is a power in storytelling that can transform our lives. Traditional stories, myths, and fairy tales hold this power. The stories we tell of our own lives carry this transforming power, too. In the process of telling our life stories, we discover that we are more sacred beings than we are human beings, that the most powerful life story expresses the struggle of [our] soul. #Quote by Whitney Johnson
Life Story quotes by Jeffrey Dahmer
#195. I couldn't find any meaning for my life when I was out there, I'm sure as hell not going to find it in here. This is the grand finale of a life poorly spent and the end result is just overwhelmingly depressing ... it's just a sick, pathetic, wretched, miserable life story, that's all it is. How it can help anyone, I've no idea. #Quote by Jeffrey Dahmer
Life Story quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#196. So if you want to know the truth about the universe, about the meaning of life, and about your own identity, the best place to start is by observing suffering and exploring what it is.
The answer isn't a story. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Life Story quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#197. If the context is lost and merely bits and pieces remain from a scattered existence, only the connection of anchor points may reinstate a distorted mental balance in an upset life story. ("Lost the global story." ) #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Life Story quotes by Tessa Dare
#198. I am most grateful for company this evening, even of the quiet variety. I am no great conversationalist, myself."
Gray snorted. Not a conversationalist. The girl had coaxed the life story out of every sailor in this ship.
She had just picked up her spoon again when Joss spoke.
"You do not find the voyage too tedious, Miss Turner?" Joss asked. "I regret that you are left to entertain yourself, being the sole passenger."
She laid down her spoon. "Thank you, Captain, but I find sufficient activity to occupy my hands and my mind. Reading, sketching, walking the deck for fresh air and healthful exertion. I'm surprisingly content, living at sea."
Gray's heart gave an odd kick. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Life Story quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#199. We create our sense of self by merging our fragmented thoughts in a coherent conception of our being. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster

#200. I have a daughter who's 11 years old. Maybe she'll grow up independent and really really heavy and become a movie star and she'll play me in my life story. #Quote by Patti Smith
Life Story quotes by Brian Henson
#201. My dad and mom were, they would take what were popular hits, and lip-sync to them with puppets and do a ridiculous story. #Quote by Brian Henson

You've taken away my looks, my identity, by just a glance.
By making me drink the wine of love-potion,
You've intoxicated me by just a glance;
My fair, delicate wrists with green bangles in them,
Have been held tightly by you with just a glance.
I give my life to you, Oh my cloth-dyer,
You've dyed me in yourself, by just a glance.
I give my whole life to you Oh, Nijam,
You've made me your bride, by just a glance. #Quote by Amir Khusrau

Life Story quotes by Bell Hooks

Life Story quotes by Rosamunde Pilcher
#208. She had been impulsive all her life, made decisions without thought for the future, and regretted none of them, however dotty. Looking back, all she regretted were the opportunities missed, either because they had come along at the wrong time or because she had been too timid to grasp them. #Quote by Rosamunde Pilcher
Life Story quotes by Mike Berenstain
#209. As a young adult, I began to read widely in history, philosophy, and religion - including the Bible. I began to feel that a purely secular view of life was incomplete and that the universe was a fundamentally spiritual place. #Quote by Mike Berenstain

Life Story quotes by Mikhail Shishkin
#212. The author is the interface between earth and sky. Between life and text. It is he who can lead people out of time and into forever.

Languages is a means of resurrection. … Words must be made living not only until the cock crows but so the they cannot die anymore. I have to suck dead time out of the word and blow living time in, mouth to mouth - and force it to breathe, like a drowning victim. I have to resurrect it to eternal life with our breath. I have to use words to create a reality where there is no death.

Death can be overcome only by the word and by love. #Quote by Mikhail Shishkin

Life Story quotes by Guy Oseary
#214. I wanted to be involved in music and I felt I needed to get in quick. I didn't want to spend four years in college and then hope for the best. I gave myself a year, which is why I kept pushing people for a chance. I literally felt my whole life was in the balance. Music was my life, and I was scared of having time pass by and missing my chance. #Quote by Guy Oseary

Life Story quotes by Edward M. Hallowell
#217. Insist on time with the person you love and make extended time for one another. learn to say no to desirable offers. get wise to the tricks of the multitude of thieves of your time and attention that swarm around you like gnats every second. have a clear vision of the life you want. You have to know what matters most to you, and you have to make time for that, with iron-fisted determination. Here is a hard and fast Law of Modern Life: if you do not take your time, it will be taken from you. If you do not insist on making time for what matters, you will not do what matters.

Life Story quotes by Suzy Kassem
#218. How will people remember you when you are gone? And for how long until they forget? Were you selfish or selfless? A gossip or a patient listener? Did you add value to the world, or did you simply take from it? Did you add value to the lives of others, or did you take the value out of someone's life? Were you a plus or negative? Meaningful or meaningless? Do you live to take or live to give? #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Life Story quotes by Beverly Sills
#219. I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity ... I didn't feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not -more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving. #Quote by Beverly Sills
Life Story quotes by J. Richard Clarke

Life Story quotes by Michael Thomas Ford
#221. That sounds so weird: "kill yourself." It makes it sound like you tried to murder someone, only that someone is you. But killing someone is wrong, and I don't think suicide is. It's my life, right? I should be able to end it if I want to. I don't think it's a sin. #Quote by Michael Thomas Ford

Life Story quotes by Jennifer DuBois
#227. That's an applicable life less, my boy,' he'd said. 'Nobody is really paying attention to you. Most people don't really get this. They think they must count more to other people than other people count to them. They can't believe the disregard could truly be mutual. #Quote by Jennifer DuBois
Life Story quotes by Stephen Covey
#228. You may be good, but what are you good for? You've got to be good for something. You've got to be about some project, some task that requires you to be humble and obedient to the universal principles of service. You've got to live a life of complete and total integrity in order to give this kind of service. This integrity enables you to love other people unconditionally, to be courageous and kind at the same time, because you have integratedness inside your own soul. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Life Story quotes by Kristi Yamaguchi

Life Story quotes by Barbara Mandrell
#230. I realize we're not promised tomorrow. Believe me, I realize that. But if God blesses me and lets me stay, I love my life so much, it is such a good life. I am eager to throw myself at His feet, but I don't want to get on the first busload that is going. #Quote by Barbara Mandrell

Life Story quotes by Claire Charters
#232. Getting lost or losing grip gives life meaning and direction. It gives you the opportunity to grow, learn something new and startover. Next time you feel like your failing, slipping or just unsettled in life - take a deep breath - get in the moment of just "being" - feel the life run through your body - stand up and keep going. #Quote by Claire Charters

Life Story quotes by Janna Levin
#234. As the blood poured from his tattered heart into the open air and his brain suffocated, all those incomplete thoughts of Wittgenstein decayed with the dying neurons. Neural connections in the gray matter storing memories and ideas in their ordered configurations fired across the gaps, last gaps of mental life. Thoughts on Truth and Will were erased as flesh sloshed soft and limp against alabaster, no more than rotting human fruit. #Quote by Janna Levin
Life Story quotes by Wendell Pierce
#235. People forget that art is not just a piece of entertainment. It is the place where we collectively declare our values and then act on them. That's one of the most powerful things we have as a community: our culture and our art. And it's the intersection between life and how people deal with life. It's the most important thing we do. #Quote by Wendell Pierce
Life Story quotes by Thomas Vazhakunnathu
#236. We have the free will to choose how we react to those stimuli every moment of our life and what we choose creates our destiny. #Quote by Thomas Vazhakunnathu
