Life is not made up of a single moment, it's made up of a gazillion moments. What defines us is the choice we make in the next moment, and the one after that.
HENRY SPENCER, Psych, "Murder?...Anyone?...Anyone?...Bueller?" (2008)
At the end of the day, life is just this big wall of reality that we all crash into.
GEORGIA THOMAS, Ally McBeal (1997)
What connects us to life is a simple truth that we're a part of it. We live, we grow, we change.
WESLEY WYNDAM-PRYCE, Angel, "To Shanshu in L.A." (2000)
Life is full of horror; nobody escapes, nobody. Save yourself. Whatever pulls on you, whatever needs from you, threatens you-don't be afraid. People are so afraid. Don't be afraid to live in the raw wind, naked, alone. Learn at least this-what you are capable of. Let nothing stand in your way.
ROY COHN, Angels in America (2003)
Life is a gift. As sweet as a ripped peach, as precious as a gilded jewel.
LUCIEN LACROIX, Forever Knight, "Last Knight" (1996)
Life-it's all about new horizons, keeps you from getting stale.
ANGELA PETRELLI, Heroes, "Chapter 1 'Orientation'" (2009)
I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?' So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe.
MARCUS COLE, Babylon 5, "A Late Delivery from Avalon" (1996)
What's the point of protecting life if you've lost your sense on how to live it?
CLARK KENT, Smallville, "Metallo" (2009)
Life asks of you what it thinks you can handle.
MARTHA KENT, Smallville, "Crusade" (2004)
Sometimes we're part of a master plan in which we know nothing about, we just have to enjoy the twists and turns along the way.
ALDEN, Soccer Dog (1999)
All life, every life...we are all born as molecules in the hearts of a billion stars. Molecules that do not understand politics or policies or differences. Over a billion years, we foolish molecules forget who we are and where we came from. In desperate acts of ego, we give ourselves names, fight over lines on maps, and pretend that our light is better than everyone else's. The flame reminds us of the piece of those stars that lives on inside us. The spark that tells us: "You should know better." The flame also reminds us that life is precious as each flame is unique. When it goes out, it's gone forever. And there will never be another quite like it. So many candles will got out tonight. I wonder some days if we can see anything at all.
DELENN, Babylon 5, "And All My Dreams, Torn Asunder" (1998)
We only live once. Life's so light, like an outline we can't ever fill in or correct...make any better. It's frightening.
TOMAS, The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988)
If we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, then all possibility of life is destroyed.
CHRISTOPHER McCANDLESS, Into the Wild (2007)
Life isn't about living forever...it's about making the journey really count.
SAM LINDSEY, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (1993)
You want to know the meaning of life? You're born, you go to school, you go to work, you die.
FRANK BARONE, Everybody Loves Raymond, "Talk to Your Daughter" (2002)
