The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature. ~ Marcus Aurelius
The quality of life is determined by its activities. ~ Aristotle
I'm not naive. I realize that quality of
life and income are inextricably bound together, but sooner or later
we're going to have to ask ourselves whether it is possible to make life
more meaningful without charging it to Visa. ~ Daron Hicklin
obvious that the key problem facing humanity in the coming century is
how to bring a better quality of life - for 8 billion or more people -
without wrecking the environment entirely in the attempt. ~ E. O.
How long can men
thrive between walls of brick, walking on asphalt pavements, breathing
the fumes of coal and of oil, growing, working, dying, with hardly a
thought of wind, and sky, and fields of grain, seeing only machine-made
beauty, the mineral-like quality of life? ~ Charles Lindbergh
No one imagines that a symphony is
supposed to improve in quality as it goes along, or that the whole
object of playing it is to reach the finale. The point of music is
discovered in every moment of playing and listening to it. It is the
same, I feel, with the greater part of our lives, and if we are unduly
absorbed in improving them we may forget altogether to live them. ~
Alan B. Watts
community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It's
important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It's the
way in which we ourselves grow and develop. ~ Dorothy Height
