Live life to the fullest - life quotes and thoughts

Updated on August 24, 2011

Live life - find happiness

Live life, find happiness, achieve your goals are the things that I am constantly writing about. 'Life - live it to the fullest' is my fiftieth hub. When I started three months ago, I was not sure that I would reach here in this time span. I am glad I did and this hub is a dedication to my God, my friends who have faith in me and my kids who are ever so eager to read what mama has written and my wonderful husband the silent pillar of support. Su, I can see you smile as you read this, for that is all you will ever do. I want to thank all those fellow hubbers who constantly encourage me with your comments.

I just felt compelled to acknowledge all the help and the faith in me which makes me tic .. with two simple words, "thank you"

Life quotes - from Ralf Waldo Emerson, Zig Zigler and others

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change." - Charles Darwin

“Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” - Zig Ziglar

“You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.” - Zig Ziglar

“If you wait until all the lights are "green" before you leave home, you'll never get started on your trip to the top.” - Zig Ziglar

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“You cannot tailor-make the situations in life, but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations.” - Zig Ziglar

“The person who will not stand for something will fall for anything”. -- Zig Ziglar

“As a cure for worrying, work is better than whiskey”. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes”. - Andrew Carnegie

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals." - Zig Ziglar

Success and happiness are not matters of chance but choice.-- Zig Ziglar

“Before we acquire great power we must acquire wisdom to use it well.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Live life to the fullest!
Live life to the fullest!


Live joyfully,

To the fullest,

Make each day count,

Reach out to people everyday,

Helping someone in any small way,

Do little things to make another's day!


Your blessings,

Be positive always,

Have goals in life,

See only goodness in people,

Great attitude brings success with it!

Make time to celebrate life's every gift!.


Changes people,

Gives them hope,

Makes them less bitter,

Highly balanced and much better,

Learning and growing in all they do

Fills them withselfworthand confidence too!


Uplifting words,

Thoughtless words hurt,

Words are powerful tools,

To build, not to break,

Truthful words, pleasantly spoken, nurture people.

Harsh words, once spilled can never be taken!


Your best,

Always work hard,

You may meet failure,

Never give up, work harder,

Be passionate about what you do,

Success and victory will come to you!


On Goals,

Let vision guide,

Plan ahead to work,

Work steadily towards your goals,

Fight battles that need to be fought,

Right choices lead you to the right spot!


Express yourself,

Let hope takeover,

Discard fear and stress,

Always be your stable self,

Happiness is just a decision away,

Simply smile, it will make your day!!


You make,

Make you, you,

Chose your path rightly,

Live today, happy and well,

Let the yesterdays be the past,

Live everyday as if it was your last!

      Thanks Tim, happy I am and positive yes, but this comes from tweaking up your attitude a little I always say happiness is a decision away!

      Tim, I must acknowledge that your selfless help and advice has helped me reach this miles stone sooner than I expected.. You are a awesome person Tim and as I have said this is dedicated to you and the others I have mentioned.

      Hi sofs. This is a very uplifting poem. It made me smile, as your hubs so often do. You're obviously a very happy and warm-hearted person. I just wish everyone had the same positive outlook that you (and I) do.
