Money is one of the most important subjects of your entire life. Some of life's greatest enjoyments and most of life's greatest disappointments stem from your decisions about money. Whether you experience great peace of mind or constant anxiety will depend on getting your finances under control.
Robert G Allen - Money - Life
- Decisions

I am just a person who is human, down to earth enjoying life.. whatever god blesses you with. Enjoying life for me is just normal.
Mohamed Al-Fayed - Life - Happiness - God

We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don’t know where you’re aiming, you don’t have a goal. My goal is to live my life in such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared.
Mary Kay Ash - Ambition - Goals - Life

We do not consider our principles as dogmas contained in books said to come from heaven. We derive our inspiration, not from heaven, or the unseen world, but directly from life.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk - Knowledge - Life - Inspirational


Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives.. you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours.. You the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears. Your sons are now living in our bosom and are in peace. Having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk - Life - War


In some departments of our daily life, in which we imagine ourselves free agents, we are ruled by dictators exercising great power.
Edward Bernays - Ruler - Life - Dictate - Freedom - Power

I absolutely believe in the power of tithing and giving back. My own experience about all the blessings I've had in my life is that the more I give away, the more that comes back. That is the way life works, and that is the way energy works.
Ken Blanchard - Philanthropy - Power - Life - Belief

It is once your ideas have been transformed into enough money, and if all failed, you would still live your lifestyle, and you understand that just because you have made more money than most, you are not better than the common person. We are all going to die broke. (Blixseth's definition of success)
Tim Blixseth - Success - Ideas - Money - Death - Life - Wealth

I swore I was going to exclusively collect assets and not liabilities for the rest of my life. I swore never to take gambles I couldn’t back up, or that I couldn’t afford to lose. And, I’ve stuck with that ever since.
Tim Blixseth - Assets -
Loss - Investing - Determination - Life

I found that in prison that I had more time to read the Bible, I had more time to contemplate life, and more time to look upon my fellow man. And I worked very hard during the period in there to help other people in the same situation. And I think that even in the most dastardly people, there is a goodness there, and you've got to find that goodness.
Alan Bond - Life - Optimistic


Ridiculous yachts and private planes and big limousines won’t make people enjoy life more, and it sends out terrible messages to the people who work for them. It would be so much better if that money was spent in Africa – and it’s about getting a balance.

Richard Branson - Philanthropy


There is a spiritual side to our connection with the planet. And in this material world, that's anathema. It is somewhat worrying. What I say.. it makes life. It gives us fulfilment. It makes us whole human beings. And without it, we make mistakes. And, boy, are the leaders of the world making mistakes at the moment.
Bob Brown - Life - Mistakes - Politicians


We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.
Gautama Buddha - Thinking - Life - Motivational - Inspirational - Optimistic

It's important for us to explain to our nation that life is important. It's not only life of babies, but it's life of children living in, you know, the dark dungeons of the Internet.
George Bushism - America - Funny - Stupid - Human Rights - Important - Life - Internet

My pro-life position is I believe there's life. It's not necessarily based in religion. I think there's a life there, therefore the notion of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
George Bushism - Religion - Stupid - Funny - Human Rights - Life - Belief
- Happiness

Your life right now is a reflection of your past thoughts. That includes all the great things, and all the things you consider not so great. Since you attract to you what you think about most, it is easy to see what your dominant thoughts have been on every subject of your life, because that is what you have experienced.
Rhonda Byrne - Thinking - Life - Great
- Attraction

Be grateful for what you have now. As you begin to think about all the things in your life you are grateful for, you will be amazed at the never ending thoughts that come back to you of more things to be grateful for. You have to make a start, and then the law of attraction will receive those grateful thoughts and give you more just like them.
Rhonda Byrne - Thinking - Mind - Life - Attraction - Gratitude - Encouragement


People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.
George Carlin - Life - Entertainment

It seems that we have it backward in our society. We tend to look up to people who are under a great deal of stress, who can handle loads of stress, and those who are under a great deal of pressure.
Richard Carlson - Stress - Life -

Noone knows exactly where thought comes from, but it can be said that thought comes from the same place as whatever it is that beats our heart.. it comes from being alive.
Richard Carlson - Life - Thinking

In order for us human beings to commit ourselves personally to the inhumanity of war, we find it necessary first to dehumanize our opponents, which is in itself a violation of the beliefs of all religions. Once we characterize our adversaries as beyond the scope of God's mercy and grace, their lives lose all value.
Jimmy Carter - War
- Life - Belief

Only as a warrior can one withstand the path of knowledge. A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. His life is an endless challenge, and challenges cannot possibly be good or bad. Challenges are simply challenges.
Carlos Castaneda - Warrior - Knowledge - Complain - Regret - Life - Challenges - Good - Bad


A warrior must learn to make every act count, since he is going to be here in this world for only a short while, in fact, too short for witnessing all the marvels of it.
Carlos Castaneda - Warrior - Life - World - Encouragement


The world’s forests need to be seen for what they are.. giant global utilities, providing essential services to humanity on a vast scale. Rainforests store carbon, which is lost to the atmosphere when they burn, increasing global warming. The life they support cleans the atmosphere of pollutants and feeds it with moisture. They help regulate our climate and sustain the lives of some of the poorest people on this Earth.
Prince Charles - Environment - Climate Change - World - Carbon - Ecology - Global Warming - Life

Deepak Chopra - Life

Deepak Chopra - Life
- Thinking - Planning

Miracles happen every day. Not just in remote country villages or at holy sites halfway across the globe, but here, in our own lives.
Deepak Chopra - Life
- Inspirational - Optimistic

To have passion, to have a dream, to have a purpose in life. And there are three components to that purpose, one is to find out who you really are, to discover God, the second is to serve other human beings, because we are here to do that and the third is to express your unique talents and when you are expressing your unique talents you lose track of time.
Deepak Chopra - Life
- Passions - God - Skill - Time

The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years. Most people believe that aging is universal but there are biological organisms that never age.
Deepak Chopra - Thinking
- Optimistic - Life - Belief

Terrorism isn't insanity. It grows out of social conditions that are well known: poverty, social oppression, dictatorship, and a void of meaning in the lives of ordinary people.
Deepak Chopra - Life
- Poverty - People - Problems - Meaning

A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one's own path, not chasing after the dreams of others.
Chin-Ning Chu - Passions - Success - Life - Goals


My view is that, you know, life unfolds at its own rhythm. You know, I have never lived a life that I thought I could plan out. And I'm just trying to do the best I can every day. I find I have a lot to get done between the time I get up and the time I go to bed.
Hillary Rodham Clinton - Life
- Planning - Action - Busy

You know, people make a lot of money talking about me, don't they? They just get on those shows, and they talk away. There's nothing I can do. And that's one of the great lessons I try to convey in my book, which my mother implanted in me as a young girl.. Is you can either be an actor in your own life, or a reactor in somebody else's.
Hillary Rodham Clinton - Life - Money - Famous - Motivational

I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life.
Hillary Rodham Clinton - Life - Politicians - Woman


For many people a job is more than an income – it's an important part of who we are. So a career transition of any sort is one of the most unsettling experiences you can face in your life.
Paul Clitheroe - Jobs - Change - Life


I just found it interesting to talk to adults I admired, and to discover that the path they took was never all that clearly defined. It was comforting to me when I figured out that you don't have to know what you want to do with your life; you just have to take a few steps in one direction, and other opportunities will open up.
Anderson Cooper - Opportunity - Life - Instinct


Anyone who has experienced a certain amount of loss in their life has empathy for those who have experienced loss.
Anderson Cooper - Life - Loss
- Experience

I'm convinced that we can write and live our own scripts more than most people will acknowledge. I also know the price that must be paid. It's a real struggle to do it. It requires visualization and affirmation. It involves living a life of integrity, starting with making and keeping promises, until the whole human personality the senses, the thinking, the feeling, and the intuition are ultimately integrated and harmonized.
Stephen Covey - Commitment - Decisions - Goals - Life - Self Help -

We are not animals. We are not a product of what has happened to us in our past. We have the power of choice.
Stephen Covey - Change - Life - Responsibility - Decisions -


Most people struggle with life balance simply because they haven't paid the price to decide what is really important to them.
Stephen Covey - Goals - Life - Self Help -

Actually I did not invent the seven habits, they are universal principles and most of what I wrote about is just common sense. I am embarrassed when people talk about the Covey Habits, and dislike the idea of being some sort of guru.

Stephen Covey - Life - Self Help -

We are the creative force of our life, and through our own decisions rather than our conditions, if we carefully learn to do certain things, we can accomplish those goals.
Stephen Covey - Life - Self Help - Decisions -


My life honestly isn't as weird as people think it is. I work longer hours, maybe I have a bit more money, but fundamentally, I'm not really that different.
Simon Cowell - Hard Work - Money - Weird - Rich - Life

The biggest shock when I lost it all was the realization that so much of my life had been out of my control. When I started to make the money back, I vowed that it would never happen again.
I bought things only when I could afford them. There was no big mortgage, no cars on hire purchase. I remember buying a TR6 sports car for £6,000, and funnily enough it gave me more pleasure than the Porsche ever had.
Simon Cowell - Bankrupt - Loan - Money - Losing - Life - Mortgage - Cars


If we agree that the bottom line of life is happiness, not success, then it makes perfect sense to say that it is the journey that counts, not reaching the destination.

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Success - Happiness - Life - Goals


This was work (music industry) but it was the awakening to what was to become a life's passion.
Clive Davis - Work - Life - Passions


A man who dares to waste one hour of life has not discovered the value of life.
Charles Darwin - Life - Time - Value


As for a future life, every man must judge for himself between conflicting vague probabilities.
Charles Darwin - Evolution - Life - Judgment

With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination; we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed, and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to smallpox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man himself, hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed.
Charles Darwin - Competition - Survival - Evolution - Weakness - Health - Poverty - Doctors - Society - Animal - Life - Ignorance


What are all of us but self-reproducing robots? We have been put together by our genes and what we do is roam the world looking for a way to sustain ourselves and ultimately produce another robot child.
Richard Dawkins - Life - Children


Most people, I believe, think that you need a God to explain the existence of the world, and especially the existence of life. They are wrong, but our education system is such that many people don't know it.
Richard Dawkins - God - Religion - Belief - Education - World - Life - Wrong


When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way.
Wayne Dyer - Goals - Happiness - Life

Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life.
Wayne Dyer - Life - Happiness - Work

You are doomed to make choices. This is life’s greatest paradox.
Wayne Dyer - Life - Decisions

Succeeding is not really a life experience that does that much good. Failing is a much more sobering and enlightening experience.
Michael Eisner - Success - Failure - Life

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.
Ralph Waldo Emerson - Learning - Life - Action

Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.
Ralph Waldo Emerson - Learning - Life - Understanding

Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.
Ralph Waldo Emerson - Action - Fear - Life

Don't waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours and ages that will follow it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson - Doubt - Fear - Work - Life


If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.

Henry Ford - Money - Knowledge
- Life - Skill

There never was a good war or a bad peace.

Benjamin Franklin - Life

Up, sluggard, and waste not life; in the grave will be sleeping enough.
Benjamin Franklin - Action -


Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
Mahatma Gandhi - Life - Learning - Death

It is a simple fact of life on earth that there is going to be no successful mitigation of the climate change problem without a truly global effort. All developing companies or all major developing countries have to be part of that and accept substantial constraints on greenhouse gas emissions.
Ross Garnaut - Facts
- Climate Change - Problems - World - Life - Greenhouse - Emissions - Companies - Mitigation - Effort

Economic development over the past two centuries has taken most of humanity from lives that were brutal, ignorant and short, to personal health and security, material comfort and knowledge that were unknown to the elites of the wealthiest and most powerful societies in earlier times.
Ross Garnaut - World - Economy - History - Mystery - Life

Is the rich world aware of how four billion of the six billion live? If we were aware, we would want to help out, we'd want to get involved.

Bill Gates
- Philanthropy -

We started our foundation because we believe we have a real opportunity to help advance equity around the world.. to help make sure that, no matter where a person is born, he or she has the chance to live a healthy, productive life.
Melinda Gates - Help - Opportunity - Belief - Philanthropy - Life

We're all brilliant at something. I discovered my powers when I was four years old. When you're young you're more in touch with your real talents, but so often the 30 year slog knocks it out of people.
Uri Geller - Power

I don't fear death because I believe it is a transition. Our souls can't be destroyed. I know we are going to live in another life.
Uri Geller - Life

It's all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and friends and family.
Philip Green - Happiness - Work - Life

I do not deny that many appear to have succeeded in a material way by cutting corners and by manipulating associates, both in their professional and in their personal lives. But material success is possible in this world and far more satisfying when it comes without exploiting others.

Alan Greenspan - Success - Life - Dishonesty

It is decidedly not true that "nice guys finish last," as that highly original American baseball philosopher, Leo Durocher, was alleged to have said.

Mark Victor Hansen - Philanthropy - Life


One of my goals is to inspire people to be all that they can be and, hopefully, be a good example and teach some useful, interesting principles. Perhaps I can be the key that turns on the engine in their life, and then they can take their car where they want.
Mark Victor Hansen - Life - Goals - Inspirational

We've got the most prosperous culture in human history and we've also got the biggest spiritual hole in human history. People are saying, "I can't fill the hole with money. I can't fill it with alcohol, or drugs, or sex, so what do I need to fill it with?"
Mark Victor Hansen - Life - Criticism - Money


Every individual’s purpose in tithing is to open up his/her awareness of universal laws. Tithing opens you, to you. You are an unlimited individual, deprived of a fuller, richer life partly because of lack of the tithing experience and expression in life.
Mark Victor Hansen - Philanthropy - Life - Optimistic


All of my life, I have been fascinated by the big questions that face us, and have tried to find scientific answers to them. Perhaps that is why I have sold more books on physics than Madonna has on sex.
Stephen Hawking - Physics - Science - Life - Questions - Books - Sex - Fascination


It is a waste of time to be angry about my disability. One has to get on with life and I haven't done badly. People won't have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.
Stephen Hawking - People - Angry - Life - Disability - Complain


Explain to people that everything they say is an affirmation. Everything they think is an affirmation. Everything! What you want to do is to get control of what you are saying and thinking, so these things bring you good experiences in life rather than rotten experiences.

- Self Control - Optimistic - Life

Follow your own particular dreams. We are handed a life by peers, parents and society, you can do that or follow your own dreams. Life is short, be a dreamer but be a practical person.
Hugh Hefner - Dreams - Life

I'm not putting myself up as the epitome of virtue. I certainly am living a non-traditional life. But it is also a loving life and a very supportive one. I think that both in this, and the previous relationship, I think that I've been doing the best I can.
Hugh Hefner - Life - Love

I didn't want to repeat my parents' life. I saw in their lives a routine and a lack of dreaming, a lack of the possibilities, a lack of passion. And I didn't want to live without passion.
Hugh Hefner - Life - Work

The interesting thing is how one guy, through living out his own fantasies, is living out the fantasies of so many other people.
Hugh Hefner - Dreams - Life

One of the things I've tried to do with my life is redefine the boundaries that I think are very limiting. I'm not suggesting that everybody should have three girlfriends, or necessarily have girlfriends living with them. I think there are many, many options to living your life.

We have to shift our emphasis from economic efficiency and materialism towards a sustainable quality of life and to healing of our society, of our people and our ecological systems.
Janet Holmes a Court - Economy - Environmental - Life


I do believe that it is extremely important that each one of us is a participant in life and what's going on around us rather than being a spectator to it and if you do that, if you participate in the world, in your community, your school, your company, or your country, whatever.. they you will be useful and hopefully leave the planet a little better.
Janet Holmes a Court - Environmental - Life - Encouragement


Citizenship has not delivered Indigenous Australians the same quality of life other Australians expect. Basic human rights involve health, housing, education, employment, economic opportunity, and equality before the law, and respect for cultural identity and cultural diversity. These human rights must be capable of being enjoyed otherwise they are empty gestures.
Jackie Huggins - Respect - Australia - Human Rights - Life - Education - Culture - Indigenous

Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.
