Life is a sexually transmitted disease.
Anonymous

You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative
was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete
sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act.
Barbara Hall, A Summons to New Orleans, 2000

The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what
you want.
Ben Stein

Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious.
Brendan Gill

Life is a foreign language; all men mispronounce it.
Christopher Morley (1890 - 1957)

Life is too important to take seriously.
Corky Siegel

As a scientist, I am not sure anymore that life can be reduced to a class
struggle, to dialectical materialism, or any set of formulas. Life is
spontaneous and it is unpredictable, it is magical. I think that we have
struggled so hard with the tangible that we have forgotten the intangible.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, Northern Exposure, Zarya, 1994

Life is everywhere. The earth is throbbing with it, it's like music. The
plants, the creatures, the ones we see, the ones we don't see, it's like one,
big, pulsating symphony.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, Northern Exposure, Mite Makes Right, 1994

Life's dirty. Life's unclean you know. It's birth, it's sex, it's the intestinal
tract. One big squishy, unsanitary mess. It never gets any cleaner either.
You know, dust to dust, worms crawl in, worms crawl out, right? Even
though we know that, we still walk the walk, we still live the life. We're
like a bunch of little kids. Little kids, you know, we jump in this big old
pond of mud and we're slapping it all over our face, rubbing our hair all
down our backs and we're making these glorious, gooey, mud pies. That's
us.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, Northern Exposure, Mite Makes Right, 1994

The purpose of life is to fight maturity.
Dick Werthimer
Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
A medley of extemporanea;
And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
And I am Marie of Roumania.
Dorothy Parker (1893 - 1967), Not So Deep as a Well (1937), "Comment"

It's not true that life is one damn thing after another; it is one damn thing
over and over.
Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 - 1950)

Life is just one damned thing after another.
Elbert Hubbard (1856 - 1915)

Life is something that happens when you can't get to sleep.
Fran Lebowitz (1950 - )

We all carry around so much pain in our hearts. Love and pain and beauty.
They all seem to go together like one little tidy confusing package. It's a
messy business, life. It's hard to figure--full of surprises. Some good.
Some bad.
Henry Bromel, Northern Exposure, The Big Kiss, 1991

Life is something that everyone should try at least once.
Henry J. Tillman

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.
Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992)

Life is a long lesson in humility.
James M. Barrie (1860 - 1937)

First I thought it was numbness, shock. The inability to believe that a just
God could allow someone to destroy a gold mine of prehistoric knowledge
for a year's worth of Salisbury steak...Life is a mystery. One man's life-
altering experience is another man's tenderloin.
Jeff Melvoin, Northern Exposure, Lovers and Madmen, 1994
