What is life?
Listen to what these men and women had to say about it, after a life of pain, love, work, disappointment, triumph, and everyday struggle.
“Life is a play that does not allow testing. So, sing, cry, dance, laugh and live intensely, before the curtain closes and the piece ends with no Applause.” – Charlie Chaplin
“Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” Helen Keller
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” William James
“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.” Humbert Humphrey
“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you handle it.” Lou Holtz
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep you balance, you must keep moving.” Albert Einstein
“I have a new philosophy. I’m only going to dread one day at a time.” Charlie Brown
Life can be hard. Frustrating. Exhausting. But it can also be wonderful. Amazing. Healing. As boomers we’ve most likely seen it all, yet we want more. When I think of the places I still want to see, the books I want to read, the experiences I still want to have…I’m thankful I’m still here. Even with all the pinheads that pop up during the day, I want tomorrow to come.
So we get out there. We try it again. And we hope for the best.
“Life is like a movie: write your own ending Keep believing; keep pretending.”
