You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough.

Take advantage of the life that was given to you. Don't waste it living in fear. If you make this the best life possible, you can leave it with a smile on your face.

Life isn’t worth living unless you’re willing to take some big chances and go for broke. - Eliot Wiggington

Life is about taking smart risks. When you dare to go for your dreams, you will risk failing and being hurt. However, it you don't take the risk and just merely exist, then you might want to ask yourself what the point of your life is.

God, if I can’t have what I want, let me want what I have.

Many people go through life unhappy and dissatisfied because they feel that unless they can get the things they want in life, they can't be happy. The secret of happiness isn't to accumulate tons of things and to achieve this or that. The secret is to be happy with have you already have. Remember that many of the things you have now were once things that excited you to get.

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

Many people, because of fear of (fill in the blank), don't fully embrace it and live it the way they really want to. They wait and wait for the perfect moment, for everything to fall into place in order to finally start living. The problem is that that perfect moment will never come. Life isn't about waiting for things to happen, it's about taking what you currently have and going for what you want even if the circumstances aren't perfect.

Sometimes you have to forget what’s gone, appreciate what still remains, and look forward to what’s coming next.

If there is one truth about life, it's that it goes on. Instead of dwelling in the past and thinking about what could've been, learn to appreciate what you have now and to also realize that the best moments have yet to come.

Life is good when you see the good in life.

Your experience of life will greatly depend on what lense you view your life through. Two people can have the same event happen to them yet have completely different perspectives of that experience. For example, both can lose their jobs. One could complain about how unlucky he is while the other sees it as an opportunity to find a better job or even to start a business.

Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well.

Many of us falsely believe that success people are lucky and that if they had the luck that those people had, they would put themselves out there more. Just like in the game of poker, a big part of life is accepting what you have and realizing that even if you have "bad cards", you can still win. Having a good hand doesn't guarantee anything.

The only way to live happily ever after is to do it one day at a time.

Every day, you will have a choice of whether or not to be happy. Having a happy life really just comes down to having a bunch of happy days. You control how you feel so remember to choose happiness.

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent.  - Steve Jobs

As much as we want to avoid thinking about it, life will end someday. Learn to stop living as if you're going to live forever and perhaps it will help you overcome whatever fears you may have that is stopping you from living the life of your dreams. Every day you waste, is another day less you will have to spend experiencing your ideal life.

Imperfection is not our personal problem, it is a natural part of existing. - Tara Brach

No one's perfect. Accept your imperfections and live life on your terms regardless of what others may think.

Life is very short and what we have to do must be done in the now. - Audre Lorde

Life can be nearly over in a blink of an eye. Time can fly by pretty quickly so don't waste it. Have goals and work on creating a life that will leave a smile on your face once it's time to go.

Life is the sum of all your choices. - Albert Camus

It's easy to predict the future because all it is is an accumulation of all of the choices you've made throughout your life. If you don't like where your life is headed, change your choices.

In the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away.

It's not about how long you live. You could live to be 120 years old and never live a day in your life. Life can be over in an instant. Embrace the time you have while you still have it. Be aware of the fears that hold you back and step forward anyway. Create special moments should be a focus because at the end of your life, those moments are the only things you will really remember.
