Famous quotes containing the word life:

    Show me a character whose life arouses my curiosity, and my flesh begins crawling with suspense.
    Fawn M. Brodie (1915–1981)

    From too much love of living,
    From hope and fear set free,
    We thank with brief thanksgiving
    Whatever gods may be
    That no life lives for ever;
    That dead men rise up never;
    That even the weariest river
    Winds somewhere safe to sea.
    —A.C. (Algernon Charles)

    Yes, life is a woman!
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
