"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." - Oscar Wilde

Interpreted Meaning: Oscar Wilde hints that people are too concerned about the hustle and bustles of life that they forget to enjoy the pleasures in the world. This is what modern society has transformed people into; beings that are worried about rent, food, bills and how to improve their standard of living.

The moral from this quote is that even though a lot of effort is required to maintained a decent living in today's world, one should still find time once in a while to enjoy the beautiful things of life because life is too short.

life is like riding a bicycle

"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." - Albert Einstein

Interpreted Meaning: This quotes uses the principle of riding a bike to illustrate how essential it is for us to strive to better ourselves and leave our comfort zones. When riding a bike the only way to avoid falling over(maintain balance) is to keep moving(stepping on the pedals). the moment the rider stops doing this the bike stops and would attempt to throw him over.

This same principle applies to life, in order to have balance and move move forward you must put an effort into what ever it is you do. Even though you appear to be the best at what you do at the moment, you can still be better at it.

Never be afraid to put in effort because it is the only way to maintain balance in life.

If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there
If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there

"If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there."- Lewis Carroll

interpreted Meaning: Lewis carroll, the author of Alice in the wonderland suggests that if we don't have a clearly set goal or objective, then our destination is immaterial. In other words being aimless means you can do what ever you want, but in the end you will still get an unexpected (unwanted result).

It underlines the need to work in accordance with a set plan or objective.


"Where there is love there is life." - Mahatma Gandhi

Interpreted Meaning: Love brings a euphoric feeling of contentment, hope of a brighter tomorrow. This is how life is supposed to be and love makes it so. Take away love from the equation and life becomes full of dissatisfaction.
