The Art Of Living quotes by Macrina Wiederkehr
#1. inevitably someone will ask me about the word mindfulness with a tone of caution, suggesting that this is a Buddhist concept. It is true that Buddhists have long been faithful to the practice of mindfulness, but striving to live mindfully is a universal quest and belongs to us all. Living mindfully is the art of living awake and ready to embrace the gift of the present moment. #Quote by Macrina Wiederkehr
The Art Of Living quotes by Seneca The Younger
#2. Teach the art of living well. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
The Art Of Living quotes by Elizabeth Lesser
#3. Meditation practice is like piano scales, basketball drills, ballroom dance class. Practice requires discipline; it can be tedious; it is necessary. After you have practiced enough, you become more skilled at the art form itself. You do not practice to become a great scale player or drill champion. You practice to become a musician or athlete. Likewise, one does not practice meditation to become a great meditator. We meditate to wake up and live, to become skilled at the art of living. #Quote by Elizabeth Lesser
The Art Of Living quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#4. Just trust yourself and you'll learn the art of living. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
The Art Of Living quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#5. The art of living consists in knowing which impulses to obey and which must be made to obey. #Quote by Sydney J. Harris
The Art Of Living quotes by James Boswell
#6. His OFELLUS in the Art of Living in London, I have heard him relate, was an Irish painter, whom he knew at Birmingham, and who had practiced his own precepts of economy for several years in the British capital. He assured Johnson, who, I suppose, was then meditating to try his fortune in London, but was apprehensive of the expence, 'that thirty pounds a year was enough to enable a man to live there without being contemptible. He allowed ten pounds for cloaths and linen. He said a man might live in a garret at eighteen-pence a week; few people would inquire where he lodged; and if they did, it was easy to say, "Sir, I am to be found at such a place." By spending three-pence in a coffee-house, he might be for some hours every day in very good company; he might dine for six-pence, breakfast on bread and milk for a penny, and do without supper. On clean-shirt day he went abroad, and paid visits. #Quote by James Boswell
The Art Of Living quotes by Malcolm Muggeridge
#7. All happenings, great and small, are parables whereby God speaks. The art of life is to get the message. To see all that is offered us at the windows of the soul, and to reach out and receive what is offered, this is the art of living. #Quote by Malcolm Muggeridge
The Art Of Living quotes by Henri Frederic Amiel
#8. You desire to know the art of living, my friend? It is contained in one phrase: make use of suffering.
#Quote by Henri Frederic Amiel
The Art Of Living quotes by Flora Thompson
#9. No age can have everthing and in material ways ours is more fortunate than any preceding one. Our ancestors appear to have mastered the art of living better than we are able to when an easy conscience, largely due to the unshaken faith of the time, left a marging of spiritual energy with which to enjoy life. #Quote by Flora Thompson
The Art Of Living quotes by Henry Taylor
#10. The art of living easily as to money is to pitch your scale of living one degree below your means. #Quote by Henry Taylor
The Art Of Living quotes by Maya Angelou
#11. When I find myself filling with rage over the loss of a beloved, I try as soon as possible to remember that my concerns and questions should be focused on what I learned or what I have yet to learn from my departed love. What legacy was left which can help me in the art of living a good life?

Did I learn to be kinder,
To be more patient,
And more generous,
More loving,
More ready to laugh,
And more easy to accept honest tears?
If I accept those legacies of my departed beloveds, I am able to say, Thank You to them for their love and Thank You to God for their lives. #Quote by Maya Angelou
The Art Of Living quotes by Sherwin B. Nuland
#12. The art of dying is the art of living. The honesty and grace of the years of life that are ending is the real measure of how we die. It is not in the last weeks or days that we compose the message that will be remembered, but in all the decades that proceeded them. Who has lived in dignity, dies in dignity. #Quote by Sherwin B. Nuland
The Art Of Living quotes by Jim Rohn
#13. Wherever you are, be there. Lifestyle is not something we do; it is something we experience. And until we learn to be there, we will never master the art of living well. #Quote by Jim Rohn
The Art Of Living quotes by Albert Einstein
#14. Compassionate people are geniuses in the art of living, more necessary to the dignity, security, and joy of humanity than the discoverers of knowledge. #Quote by Albert Einstein
The Art Of Living quotes by Holbrook Jackson
#15. People who want to be amused have lost the art of living. #Quote by Holbrook Jackson
The Art Of Living quotes by Ellen Key
#16. The art of living demands that our interest in bringing forth flowers in our family life equal the interest we take in bringing them forth in our window gardens. So long as their home-life aesthetics have not become ethics, women need not expect husbands, children, or servants to feel happy in the homes of their creation. #Quote by Ellen Key
The Art Of Living quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#17. I know I ought to be contented, but I'm not. My life is very comfortable, but so quiet and uneventful, I get tired of it and want to launch out as the others have, and do something, or at least try ... I'd like to know what my gift is," said Rose ...
"The art of living for others so patiently and sweetly that we enjoy it as we do the sunshine, and are not half grateful enough for the great blessing." [said Uncle Alec.] #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
The Art Of Living quotes by Alan W. Watts
#18. The art of living ... is neither careless drifting on the one hand nor fearful clinging to the past on the other. It consists in being sensitive to each moment, in regarding it as utterly new and unique, in having the mind open and wholly receptive. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
The Art Of Living quotes by Henri Nouwen
#19. The art of living is to enjoy what we can see and not complain about what remains in the dark. #Quote by Henri Nouwen
The Art Of Living quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The Art Of Living quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#25. Live your life without hurting anybody. Harmlessness is a most powerful form of Yoga and it will take you speedily to your goal. This is what I call nisarga yoga, the Natural yoga. It is the art of living in peace and harmony, in friendliness and love. The fruit of it is happiness, uncaused and endless. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
The Art Of Living quotes by Sirshree
#26. MAGIC OF SELF-TALK
It is good to be alive. It is better to live a virtuous life. It is best to know supreme life and become Life. To become Life and to learn the art of living a supreme life, you need to learn the magic of self-talk. When you engage in positive self-talk with full awareness and understanding, you save yourself from various miseries and become capable of dissolving sorrows. #Quote by Sirshree
The Art Of Living quotes by Robert Musil
#27. he had to stand by while there proliferated in his own house such concepts as "the art of living thought" "the graph of spiritual growth" and "action on the wing". he discovered that a biweekly "hour of purification" was held regularly under his roof. he demanded an explanation. it turned out that what they meant by this was reading the poems of Stefan George together. Leo Fischel searched his old encyclopedia in vain for the poet's name. but what irritated him most of all, old-style liberal that he was, was that these green pups referred to all the high government officials, bank presidents, and leading university figures in the Parallel Campaign as "puffed-up little men". then there were the world-weary airs they gave themselves, complaining that the times had become devoid of great ideas, if there was anyone left who was ready for great ideas. that even "humanity" had become a mere buzzword, as far as they were concerned, and that only "the nation" or, as they called it, "folk and folkways" still really had any meaning.

wiser than their years, they disdained "lust" and "the inflated lie about the crude enjoyment of animal existence" as they called it, but talked so much about supersensuality and mystical desire that the startled listener reacted willy-nilly by feeling a certain tenderness for sensuality and physical desires, and even Leo Fischel had to admit that the unbridled ardor of their language sometimes made the listener feel the roots of their ideas shoo #Quote by Robert Musil
The Art Of Living quotes by Doris Lessing
#28. The art of living in a small town is one of the most difficult to acquire. #Quote by Doris Lessing
The Art Of Living quotes by Shreya Naik
#29. When you learn to let go of what you hold so close to your heart yet keep sending unconditional love its way, you must know that you have mastered the art of living. #Quote by Shreya Naik
The Art Of Living quotes by Pema Chodron
#30. When one of the emperors of China asked Bodhidharma (the Zen master who brought Zen from India to China) what enlightenment was, his answer was, "Lots of space, nothing holy." Meditation is nothing holy. Therefore there's nothing that you think or feel that somehow gets put in the category of "sin." There's nothing that you can think or feel that gets put in the category of "bad." There's nothing that you can think or feel that gets put in the category of "wrong." It's all good juicy stuff - the manure of waking up, the manure of achieving enlightenment, the art of living in the present moment. #Quote by Pema Chodron
The Art Of Living quotes by Raymond Chandler
#31. I merely say that all reading for pleasure is escape, whether it be Greek, mathematics, astronomy, Benedetto Croce, or The Diary of the Forgotten Man. To say otherwise is to be an intellectual snob, and a juvenile at the art of living. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
The Art Of Living quotes by Yvon Chouinard
#32. A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both. #Quote by Yvon Chouinard
The Art Of Living quotes by Elaine Heffner
#33. The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. #Quote by Elaine Heffner
The Art Of Living quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#34. I had to face the possibility that the art of living in the way of Jesus was no longer carried on in a holistic way by any single tradition. #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
The Art Of Living quotes by Vandana Shiva
#35. Staying home is an ecological imperative, an ethical imperative. It is also a joyful option. It is the practice of oikonomia as the art of living. It is earth democracy in action, cultivating and expanding the freedoms of all beings. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
The Art Of Living quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#36. He decided to give up his large ambition of knowledge and action for any narrow craft or profession, aiming at a much more comprehensive calling, the art of living. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Art Of Living quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#37. The deepest poverty is the inability of joy, the tediousness of a life considered absurd and contradictory. This poverty is widespread today, in very different forms in the materially rich as well as the poor countries. The inability of joy presupposes and produces the inability to love, produces jealousy, avarice - all defects that devastate the life of individuals and of the world. This is why we are in need of a new evangelization - if the art of living remains an unknown, nothing else works ... this art can only be communicated by [one] who has life - he who is the Gospel personified. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
The Art Of Living quotes by Samuel Goldwyn
#38. Ninety per cent of the art of living consists of getting on with people you can't stand. #Quote by Samuel Goldwyn
The Art Of Living quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#39. The attempt to develop a sense of humor and to see things in a humorous light is some kind of a trick learned while mastering the art of living. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
The Art Of Living quotes by Laurance Rockefeller
#40. I profoundly feel that the art of living is the art of giving. You're fulfilled in the moment of giving, of doing something beyond yourself. #Quote by Laurance Rockefeller
The Art Of Living quotes by Rashmi Bansal
#41. Life is a collection of experiences. To experience each moment fully and accept it is an art. The art of living gracefully and never growing 'old'. #Quote by Rashmi Bansal
The Art Of Living quotes by Ananda K. Coomaraswamy
#42. The Sinhalese people are not, in my opinion, happier or better than they were in the eighteenth century. Talk of progress, and the reality, are not the same. Civilisation is supposed to advance by the creation of new desires, to gratify which the individual must endeavour to improve his position. But in reality it is not quantity, but quality of wants that may be taken as evidence of progress in the Art of Living. No one acquainted with modern Sinhalese taste will pretend that it gives evidence of any improvement in the quality of wants. Indeed, it is sufficiently obvious that quantity, variety, and novelty are not really compatible with quality. #Quote by Ananda K. Coomaraswamy
The Art Of Living quotes by Breyten Breytenbach
#43. Americans have mastered the art of living with the unacceptable. #Quote by Breyten Breytenbach
The Art Of Living quotes by Paul Klee
#44. First of all, the art of living; then as my ideal profession, poetry and philosophy, and as my real profession, plastic arts; in the last resort, for lack of income, illustrations. #Quote by Paul Klee
The Art Of Living quotes by Rajneesh
#45. Meditation is the art of living with yourself. It is nothing else than that, simply that: the art of being joyously alone. A meditator can sit joyously alone for months, for years. He does not hanker for the other, because his own inner ecstasy is so much, is so overpowering, that who bothers about the other? #Quote by Rajneesh
The Art Of Living quotes by Bertolt Brecht
#46. All artforms are in the service of the greatest of all arts: the art of living. #Quote by Bertolt Brecht
The Art Of Living quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#47. Learn the art of living in the desert from a camel; learn the art of jumping from a kangaroo! The person who does the job best is also the best teacher in that job! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
The Art Of Living quotes by Julian Jaynes
#48. Civilization is the art of living in towns of such size the everyone does not know everyone else. #Quote by Julian Jaynes
The Art Of Living quotes by Gerry Spence
#49. The art of arguing is the art of living. We argue because we must, because life emends it, because, in the end, life itself is but an argument. #Quote by Gerry Spence
The Art Of Living quotes by Cesare Pavese
#50. The art of living is the art of knowing how to believe lies. #Quote by Cesare Pavese
The Art Of Living quotes by Epictetus
#51. He who is discontented with what he has, and with what has been granted to him by fortune, is one who is ignorant of the art of living, but he who bears that in a noble spirit, and makes reasonable use of all that comes from it, deserves to be regarded as a good man. #Quote by Epictetus
The Art Of Living quotes by Barbara Coloroso
#52. Odors from decaying food wafting through the air when the door is opened, colorful mold growing between a wet gym uniform and thedamp carpet underneath, and the complete supply of bath towels scattered throughout the bedroom can become wonderful opportunities to help your teenager learn once again that the art of living in a community requires compromise, negotiation, and consensus. #Quote by Barbara Coloroso
The Art Of Living quotes by S. N. Goenka
#53. One learns the art of dying by learning the art of living: how to become master of the present moment. #Quote by S. N. Goenka
The Art Of Living quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#54. The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing, in so far as it stands ready against the accidental and the unforeseen, and is not apt to fall. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
The Art Of Living quotes by Helen Cam
#55. Civilization is the art of living together with people not entirely like oneself. #Quote by Helen Cam
The Art Of Living quotes by Machado De Assis
#56. He felt that there is a loose balance of good and evil, and that the art of living consists in getting the greatest good out of the greatest evil. #Quote by Machado De Assis
The Art Of Living quotes by Ivan Goncharov
#57. She never indulged in reveries or tried to be clever in her conversation; she seemed to have drawn a line in her mind beyond which she never went. It was quite obvious that feelings, every kind of relationship, including love, entered into her life on equal terms with everything else, while in the case of other women love quite manifestly takes part, if not in deeds, then in words, in all the problems of life, and everything else is allowed in only in so far as love leaves room for it. The thing this woman esteemed most was the art of living, of being able to control oneself, of keeping a balance between thought and intention, intention and realization. You could never take her unawares, by surprise, but she was like a watchful enemy whose expectant gaze would always be fixed on you, however hard you tried to lie in wait for him. High society was her element, and therefore tact and caution prompted her every thought, word, and movement. #Quote by Ivan Goncharov
The Art Of Living quotes by Edmund White
#58. The French have such an attractive civilization, dedicated to calm pleasures and general tolerance, and their taste in every domain is so sharp, so sure, that the foreigner (especially someone from chaotic, confused America) is quickly seduced into believing that if he can only become a Parisian he will at last master the art of living. #Quote by Edmund White
The Art Of Living quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#59. What does it mean to be cultured? Who is the cultured person? The cultured individual is not defined nor determined by status in society nor by wealth; but the cultured individual is determined and defined by his or her sense for the art of life. And what is the art of life? The art of life is the reflection of the mind and the soul upon the world, upon other people, upon the respect and understanding of other people and upon the things that are in this world and beyond. There is a joy that is always sought in beautiful things. Being cultured is being conscious, reflective, understanding, feeling, aware. Knowing how to feel, to listen, to understand. A desire to find or to create joy in many things - that is the art of life. And these things define a cultured person. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
The Art Of Living quotes by Maria Gentile
#60. ...among whom the art of living well and getting the most out of life at a moderate expense has been attained to a very high degree. #Quote by Maria Gentile
The Art Of Living quotes by Swami Dhyan Giten
#61. The Art of Living is to be yourself. It is to be true to yourself.
The Art of Living is learning to live with love, awareness and truth.
Meditation is the way to learn The Art of Living.
Being is you. To discover your being is the beginning of life.

You can live in two ways:
1. Ego - effort and desire and 2.Being - no-effort, being in a let go with existence.

Religion is The Art of Living.

Five keys to The Art of Living:
1. Be life-affirmative. Life is synonymous with God.
Live with reverence, great respect and gratitude for life. Feel thankful and prayerful.
2. Make life an heartful, aesthetic experience.
Become more sensitive, sensuous and creative - and you will become more spiritual.
3.Experience life in all possible ways.
Experience all dualities and polarities of life: good/bad, bitter/sweet, summer/winter, happiness/sadness and life/death.
Do not be afraid of experience, because the more experiences you have, the more spiritually mature you become.
4. Live in the present.
Forget the past and the future - this moment is the only reality.
This moment has to become your whole love, life and death.
5.Live courageously.
Do not become too result-oriented, because result-oriented people miss life. Do not think of goals, because goals are in the future - and life is in the moment, in the here and now. #Quote by Swami Dhyan Giten
The Art Of Living quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#62. Yet it is possible to practice the art of living even in a concentration camp, although suffering is omnipresent. To draw an analogy: a man's suffering is similar to the behavior of gas. If a certain quantity of gas is pumped into an empty chamber, it will fill the chamber completely and evenly, no matter how big the chamber. Thus suffering completely fills the human soul and conscious mind, no matter whether the suffering is great or little. Therefore the "size" of human suffering is absolutely relative. It #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
The Art Of Living quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#63. He has to perfection, M. le Comte, the art of living his private life with as much public attention as possible. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
The Art Of Living quotes by Henry Miller
#64. The art of living is based on rhythm - on give & take, ebb & flow, light & dark, life & death. By acceptance of all aspects of life, good & bad, right & wrong, yours & mine, the static, defensive life, which is what most people are cursed with, is converted into a dance, 'the dance of life,' metamorphosis. #Quote by Henry Miller
The Art Of Living quotes by E.F. Schumacher
#65. The art of living is always to make a good thing out of a bad thing. #Quote by E.F. Schumacher
The Art Of Living quotes by Philippe Petit
#66. And do not forget that the blood of rebellion flows through your veins, that around your soul meanders the river of perfection; above all stay devoted to your art - even if it is only the art of living! - above all remain loyal to it. #Quote by Philippe Petit
The Art Of Living quotes by Jean Anouilh
#67. The true masters of the art of living are already happy ... #Quote by Jean Anouilh
The Art Of Living quotes by Jean-Luc Godard
#68. In a sense, fear is the daughter of God, redeemed on Good Friday. She is not beautiful, mocked, cursed or disowned by all. But don't be mistaken, she watches over all mortal agony, she intercedes for mankind; for there is a rule and an exception. Culture is the rule, and art is the exception. Everybody speaks the rule; cigarette, computer, t-shirt, television, tourism, war. Nobody speaks the exception. It isn't spoken, it is written; Flaubert, Dostoyevsky. It is composed; Gershwin, Mozart. It is painted; Cézanne, Vermeer. It is filmed; Antonioni, Vigo. Or it is lived, then it is the art of living; Srebrenica, Mostar, Sarajevo. The rule is to want the death of the exception. So the rule for cultural Europe is to organise the death of the art of living, which still flourishes. #Quote by Jean-Luc Godard
The Art Of Living quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#69. The material and the spiritual are but two parts of one universe and one truth. By overstressing one part or the other, man fails to achieve the balance necessary for harmonious development ... Practice the art of living in this world without losing your inner peace of mind. Follow the path of balance to reach the inner wondrous garden of Self-Realization. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
The Art Of Living quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#70. Many people still believe that we can only be happy when we have a lot of money and power. Looking around, we see many people who have plenty of money and power, but who still suffer very deeply from stress and loneliness. So power and money are not the answer. We have to educate ourselves in the art of living mindfully. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
The Art Of Living quotes by Agatha Christie
#71. Nobody understands the art of living nowadays, ... Catching trains, making appointments, fixing times for everything - all nonsense. Get up with the sun I say, have your meals when you feel like it, and never tie yourself to a time or a date. I could teach people how to live if they would listen to me. #Quote by Agatha Christie
The Art Of Living quotes by Henry Miller
#72. The art of living involves the act of creation. The work of art is nothing. It is only the tangible, visible evidence of a way of life, which, if it is not crazy is certainly different from the accepted way of life ... For the artist to attach himself to his work, or identify himself with it, is suicidal. #Quote by Henry Miller
The Art Of Living quotes by Paul K. Chappell
#73. When people in a democracy are not educated in the art of living
to strengthen their conscience, compassion, and ability to question and think critically
they can be easily manipulated by fear and propaganda. A democracy is only as wise as its citizens, and a democracy of ignorant citizens can be as dangerous as a dictatorship. #Quote by Paul K. Chappell
The Art Of Living quotes by A.G. Stranger
#74. No form of art is greater than the art of living. #Quote by A.G. Stranger
The Art Of Living quotes by Osho
#75. Always be alert, never get hooked into anything negative. Many people go on studying negative things; their energies are simply wasted. There is no art of dying. Or, the art of living is the art of dying. Live! #Quote by Osho
The Art Of Living quotes by Lebo Grand
#76. Almost every woman inherently wants to have the 'desirability advantage,' but few are willing to admit not to mention work on it. The following advice is strictly meant for sensual ladies: Don't be afraid to be your most gorgeous self or to look sexy. Yes, it will give you an unfair advantage, but what's really important is that it will teach you the art of living a sensual lifestyle, an art without which life (and love) would be utterly boring if not depressing. #Quote by Lebo Grand
The Art Of Living quotes by Roland Barthes
#77. The art of living has no history: it does not evolve: the pleasure which vanishes vanishes for good, there is no substitute for it. Other pleasures come, which replace nothing. No progress in pleasures, nothing but mutations. #Quote by Roland Barthes
The Art Of Living quotes by Aristotle.
#78. Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well. #Quote by Aristotle.
The Art Of Living quotes by William Lyon Phelps
#79. The greatest of all the arts is the art of living together! #Quote by William Lyon Phelps
The Art Of Living quotes by Havelock Ellis
#80. All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. #Quote by Havelock Ellis
The Art Of Living quotes by Frederick Lenz
#81. Selfless giving is the art of living. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
The Art Of Living quotes by James A. Michener
#82. The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both. #Quote by James A. Michener
The Art Of Living quotes by Epictetus
#83. Philosophy does not promise to secure anything external for man, otherwise it would be admitting something that lies beyond its proper subject-matter. For as the material of the carpenter is wood, and that of statuary bronze, so the subject-matter of the art of living is each person's own life. #Quote by Epictetus
The Art Of Living quotes by Debasish Mridha
#84. Learn the art of living. Make your life as an ageless art, then you will never grow older. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
The Art Of Living quotes by Plutarch
#85. Philosophy is the art of living. #Quote by Plutarch
The Art Of Living quotes by Laura Huxley
#86. The art of living is simply the art of using energy in an intelligent and creative way. #Quote by Laura Huxley
The Art Of Living quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#87. There are three words that convey the secret of the art of living, the secret of all success and happiness. One With Life. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
The Art Of Living quotes by Robert Mondavi
#88. We want to raise the art of living well. #Quote by Robert Mondavi
The Art Of Living quotes by Mireille Guiliano
#89. If my fellow Americans could adopt even a fraction of the French attitude about food and life (don't worry, you don't have to sign on to the politics, too), managing weight would cease to be a terror, an obsession, and reveal its true nature as part of the art of living. #Quote by Mireille Guiliano
The Art Of Living quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#90. Wisdom is the art of living skillfully in whatever actual conditions we find ourselves. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
The Art Of Living quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#91. The Shortness of Life: Seneca on Busyness and the Art of Living Wide Rather Than Living Long" "How to Find Your Purpose and Do What You Love" "9 Learnings from 9 Years of Brain Pickings" Anything about Alan Watts: "Alan Watts has changed my life. I've written about him quite a bit. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
The Art Of Living quotes by Joe Biden
#92. To me this is the first principle of life, the foundational principle, and a lesson you can't learn at the foot of any wise man: Get up! The art of living is simply getting up after you've been knocked down. #Quote by Joe Biden
The Art Of Living quotes by Henry Miller
#93. The art, the art of living, involves the act of creation. The work of art is nothing. It is only the tangible, visible evidence of a way of life, which, if it is not crazy is certainly different from the accepted way of life. The difference lies in the act, in the assertion of a will, and individuality. For the artist to attach himself to his work, or identify himself with it, is suicidal. An artist should be able not only to spit on his predecessor's art, or on all works of art, but on his own too. He should be able to be an artist all the time, and finally not be an artist at all, but a piece of art. #Quote by Henry Miller
The Art Of Living quotes by James Rosenquist
#94. I went to the University of Minnesota, and I met this amazing artist named Cameron Boothe there who was in World War I, who studied with Hans Hoffman in Munich. #Quote by James Rosenquist
The Art Of Living quotes by Alber Elbaz
#95. 'Commercial' is not the word that has to be said only by CEOs. It has to be something that is maybe the essence of design, because design has some sort of art in it and creation, but it's also some object that you have to use. There is also this pragmatic end to it. #Quote by Alber Elbaz
The Art Of Living quotes by David Bowie
#96. There are times when I prefer a cerebral moment with an artist, and I'll just enjoy the wit of a Picabia or a Duchamp. It amuses me that they thought that what they did would be a good way of making art. #Quote by David Bowie
The Art Of Living quotes by Anais Nin
#97. In art, in history man fights his fears, he wants to live forever, he is afraid of death, he wants to work with other men, he wants to live forever. He is like a child afraid of death. The child is afraid of death, of darkness, of solitude. Such simple fears behind all the elaborate constructions. Such simple fears as hunger for light, warmth, love. Such simple fears behind the elaborate constructions of art. Examine them all gently and quietly through the eyes of a boy. There is always a human being lonely, a human being afraid, a human being lost, a human being confused. Concealing and disguising his dependence, his needs, ashamed to say: I am a simple human being in a too vast and complex world. Because of all we have discovered about a leaf...it is still a leaf. Can we relate to a leaf, on a tree, in a park, a simple leaf: green, glistening, sun-bathed or wet, or turning white because the storm is coming. Like the savage, let us look at the leaf wet or shining with sun, or white with fear of the storm, or silvery in the fog, or listless in too great heat, or falling in autumn, dying, reborn each year anew. Learn from the leaf: simplicity. In spite of all we know about the leaf: its nerve structure phyllome cellular papilla parenchyma stomata venation. Keep a human relation -- leaf, man, woman, child. In tenderness. No matter how immense the world, how elaborate, how contradictory, there is always man, woman, child, and the leaf. Humanity makes everything warm and simple. #Quote by Anais Nin
The Art Of Living quotes by Hans Hofmann
#98. The difference between the arts arises because of the difference in the nature of the mediums of expression and the emphasis induced by the nature of each medium. Each means of expression has its own order of being, its own units. #Quote by Hans Hofmann
The Art Of Living quotes by Edmund Burke
#99. The only kind of sublimity which a painter or sculptor should aim at is to express by certain proportions and positions of limbs and features that strength and dignity of mind, and vigor and activity of body, which enables men to conceive and execute great actions. #Quote by Edmund Burke
The Art Of Living quotes by Duke Of Wellington
#100. To define it rudely but not ineptly, engineering is the art of doing for 10 shillings what any fool can do for a pound #Quote by Duke Of Wellington
The Art Of Living quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#101. The true, prescriptive artist strives after artistic truth; the lawless artist, following blind instinct, after an appearance of naturalness. The one leads to the highest peaks of art, the other to its lowest depths. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
The Art Of Living quotes by Carole King
#102. Scary in the idea it could be a little overwhelming to have 70 or 100 clowns in a public space. Intriguing in that it could be something interesting. I'm up for any kind of public art. #Quote by Carole King
The Art Of Living quotes by Mark Twain
#103. Over middle of mantel, engraving - Washington Crossing the Delaware; on the wall by the door, copy of it done in thunder-and-lightning crewels by one of the young ladies - work of art which would have made Washington hesitate about crossing, if he could have foreseen what advantage was going to be taken of it. #Quote by Mark Twain
The Art Of Living quotes by Richard Baxter
#104. Thou art standing all this while at the door of eternity, and death is waiting to open the door, and put thee in(247). #Quote by Richard Baxter
The Art Of Living quotes by Melissa Marr
#105. Do you ever wonder if what you look at is the same thing everyone else is seeing?'
He went even stiller at her side. 'Sometimes I'm sure it isn't the same ... but that's not so bad is it? Seeing the world in a different way?'
Creative vision creates art' he motioned around the gallery 'that shows the rest of the world a new angle. That's a beautiful thing. #Quote by Melissa Marr
The Art Of Living quotes by Boots Riley
#106. I have tried to write songs quickly that get scrapped. I've also taken a long time on songs that get scrapped because you can over-think something, and you've squeezed the life out of it. As opposed to work of art, it looks like a really great work of craftsmanship. #Quote by Boots Riley
The Art Of Living quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#107. It is how we choose what we do, and how we approach it, that will determine whether the sum of our days adds up to a formless blur, or to something resembling a work of art. #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
The Art Of Living quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#108. I am sure that it was only because Michael Angelo was engaged in the ancient and honourable occupation of lying in bed that he ever realised how the roof of the Sistine Chapel might be made into an awful imitation of a divine drama that could only be acted in the heavens. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
The Art Of Living quotes by Laurie Perez
#109. Bringing a novel to light - revealing the form and cadence, shadows and demeanor of a protagonist constructed from thin air - linking scenes and synchronicity across translucent time - holding up a glass brimming with chilled, never-tasted liquid, then sipping from it with intoxicated focus - allowing lovers to make a perilous mess of things, fall apart and nakedly come back together again - looking through conjured windows deep into someone else's snow-bound solitude, feeling utterly alone yet being all-connected: this is not writing. It's world-creating.

It's raw, exposed dreaming. It's humbling. At first too personal and intimate to share, it evolves like a child into a life of its own until I have no say in what comes next.

It's what I wake at 4am to say Yes to, the spinning possibility of a new story relentlessly commanding me to write it down so it can whirl in your experience. #Quote by Laurie Perez
The Art Of Living quotes by Twyla Tharp
#110. There are so few people who can really take hold of art and sort of eat and chew it up. Somehow it's got to be held special, sacred in a corner, and if you don't do the same thing with it, if you're not equally reverential, serious, and pompous about it, well, then you're not a great artist. Who needs that? #Quote by Twyla Tharp
The Art Of Living quotes by Anatole France
#111. They did not understand that war, which trained courage and founded the cities of barbarous and ignorant men, brings to victor himself but ruin and misery, and is nothing but a horrible and stupid crime when nations are united together by common bonds of art, science, and trade. #Quote by Anatole France
The Art Of Living quotes by Rene Gutteridge
#112. Yet every great storyteller knows it's the fine art of taking me by the hand and showing me that has the most effect on a reader's soul. It's how writers slip it all into us while we're not looking. While we're reading words, they're making magic happen, and when that magic lands right in our hearts, we're theirs forever. #Quote by Rene Gutteridge
The Art Of Living quotes by Cameron West
#113. Love yourself and others, appreciate beauty, art and music, laugh as often as possible, empathize with others' pain so that it may be diminished even if only for a moment, appreciate the flavors and textures of a finely cooked meal, let a cool breeze caress your skin on a warm summer night and drift off to a peaceful sleep. Thank #Quote by Cameron West
The Art Of Living quotes by Edwin Land
#114. Industry is best at the intersection of science and art. #Quote by Edwin Land
The Art Of Living quotes by Marianne Moore
#115. An Egyptian Pulled Glass Bottle In The Shape Of A Fish
Here we have thirst
and patience, from the first,
and art, as in a wave held up for us to see
in its essential perpendicularity;
Not brittle but
intense
the spectrum, that
spectacular and humble animal the fish,
whose scales turn aside the sun's sword with their polish. #Quote by Marianne Moore
The Art Of Living quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#116. Silly that a grocery should depress one - nothing in it but trifling domestic doings - women buying beans - riding children in those grocery go-carts - higgling about an eighth of a pound more or less of squash - what did they get out of it? Miss Willerton wondered. Where was there any chance for self-expression, for creation, for art? All around her it was the same - sidewalks full of people scurrying about with their hands full of little packages and their minds full of little packages - that woman there with the child on the leash, pulling him, jerking him, dragging him away from a window with a jack-o'-lantern in it; she would probably be pulling and jerking him the rest of her life. And there was another, dropping a shopping bag all over the street, and another wiping a child's nose, and up the street an old woman was coming with three grandchildren jumping all over her, and behind them was a couple walking too close for refinement. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
The Art Of Living quotes by Romain Rolland
#117. You desire a popular art? Begin by having a "people" whose minds are liberated, a people not crushed by misery and ceaseless toil, not brutalized by every superstition and every fanaticism, a people of itself, and victor in the fight that is being waged today. #Quote by Romain Rolland
The Art Of Living quotes by Maxwell Maltz
#118. Happiness is the art of relaxation. #Quote by Maxwell Maltz
The Art Of Living quotes by Robert Gober
#119. When you grow up being taught to worship, whatever that means, there is an array of body-rich symbols: tears, blood, crucifixion, the stations of the cross, transubstantiation ... Faith is a belief in something that is irrational, and so to have faith, there is some correlation there with the belief in the art. #Quote by Robert Gober
The Art Of Living quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#120. Azevedo Bandeira is an expert in the art of progressive intimidation, in the satanic maneuver of gradually humiliating his interlocutor by combining verities and gibes. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
The Art Of Living quotes by Megalyn Echikunwoke
#121. Obviously, there's the seedy side of the strip club world and pole dancing. But, pole dancing, as an art form, is really beautiful. It's been hyper-sexualized because it's associated with strippers, but if you think about it, just in terms of other kinds of dancing, they're using an instrument to create these amazing dance forms. #Quote by Megalyn Echikunwoke
The Art Of Living quotes by Gerhard Richter
#122. In the beginning I tried to accommodate everything there that was somewhere between art and garbage and that somehow seemed important to me and a pity to throw away. After a while, some sheets in the Atlas acquired another value, after all - that is, it seemed to me that they could stand on their own terms, not only under the protection of the Atlas. #Quote by Gerhard Richter
The Art Of Living quotes by Scott Roeben
#123. Sex is like art. Most of it is pretty bad, and the good stuff is out of your price range. #Quote by Scott Roeben
The Art Of Living quotes by Simone Weil
#124. The secret of the human condition is that there is no equilibrium between man and the surrounding forces of nature, which infinitely exceed him when in inaction; there is only equilibrium in action by which man recreates his own life through work. #Quote by Simone Weil
The Art Of Living quotes by Peter Schjeldahl
#125. I retain, but suspend, my personal taste to deal with the panoply of the art I see. I have a trick for doing justice to an uncongenial work: "What would I like about this if I liked it?" I may come around; I may not. Failing that, I wonder, What must the people who like this be like? Anthropology. #Quote by Peter Schjeldahl
The Art Of Living quotes by Mark Rothko
#126. We thus see the artist performing a dual function: first, furthering the integrity of the process of self-expression in the language of art; and secondly, protecting the organic continuity of art in relation to its own laws. For like any organic substance, art must always be in a state of flux, the tempo being slow or fast. But it must move. #Quote by Mark Rothko
The Art Of Living quotes by Derek Sivers
#127. You're free to do anything you want with your company. It's more like art. You don't have to follow any norms. It's an expression of how you feel the world should be. When you make a company, that's your little place to make your own little utopia. #Quote by Derek Sivers
The Art Of Living quotes by Surya Das
#128. Sex, creativity, music, art, family, love, beauty, and creative imagination are all part of the spiritual path in the tantric traditions. So I think that for today that has a lot to say to us about not dividing ourselves from ourselves. #Quote by Surya Das
The Art Of Living quotes by Edith Wharton
#129. Another unsettling element in modern art is that common symptom of immaturity, the dread of doing what has been done before. #Quote by Edith Wharton
The Art Of Living quotes by William Morris
#130. Beauty, which is what is meant by art, using the word in its widest sense, is, I contend, no mere accident to human life, which people can take or leave as they choose, but a positive necessity of life. #Quote by William Morris
The Art Of Living quotes by Kim Fay
#131. More than any expert Irene had met, Mr. Simms mastered the intricacies of dealing in art. He understood an object's worth, not solely its dollar value but how that value could be manipulated into emotional currency. #Quote by Kim Fay
The Art Of Living quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#132. All art is propaganda, and ever must be, despite the wailing of the purists. I stand in utter shamelessness and say that whatever art I have for writing has been used always for propaganda for gaining the right of black folk to love and enjoy. I do not care a damn for any art that is not used for propaganda. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
The Art Of Living quotes by John Wilmot
#133. Ancient person, for whom I
All the flattering youth defy,
Long be it ere thou grow old,
Aching, shaking, crazy, cold;
But still continue as thou art,
Ancient person of my heart. #Quote by John Wilmot
The Art Of Living quotes by Ellen Gallagher
#134. At times we would have these whole cities that would take up rooms and stretch out all over the house. But they were also very abstract, like 'this piece of cardboard is a pool' and so forth. #Quote by Ellen Gallagher
The Art Of Living quotes by Eve L. Ewing
#135. Ever since black people came to this country we have needed a Moses. There has always been so much water that needs parting. It seems like all black children, from the time we are born, come into the world in the midst of a rushing current that threatens to swallow us whole if we don't heed the many, many warnings we are told to heed. We come into the world as alchemists of the water, bending it, willing it to bear us safe passage and cleanse us along the way, to teach us to move with joy and purpose and to never, ever stop flowing forward into something grand waiting at the other end of the delta. We're a people forever in exodus.
Before Moses there was Abraham, and ever since black people came to this country we have needed an Abraham. We have always been sending each other away -- for our own good, don't you know it -- and calling each other back, finding kinship where a well springs from tears. We are masters of the art of sacrifice; no one is more skilled at laying their greatest beloveds on the altar and feeling certainty even as we feel sorrow. And when we see the ram, we know how to act fast, and prosper, even as the stone knife warms in our hands. #Quote by Eve L. Ewing
The Art Of Living quotes by Hans Haacke
#136. Art-making is just another part of the consciousness industry. #Quote by Hans Haacke
The Art Of Living quotes by Hillary Clinton
#137. I've gone to work, I've raised a child, and I've spent 30 years trying to better the lives of children and families. But I often return to one thing I said way back then - that politics is the art of making possible what appears to be impossible. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
The Art Of Living quotes by Patti Smith
#138. Eyeing the traffic circulating the lobby hung with bad art. Big invasive stuff unloaded on Stanley Bard in exchange for rent. The hotel is an energetic, desperate haven for scores of gifted hustling children from every rung of the ladder. Guitar bums and stoned-out beauties in Victorian dresses. Junkie poets, playwrights, broke-down filmmakers, and French actors. Everybody passing through here is somebody, if not in the outside world. #Quote by Patti Smith
