Grant Achatz
Seve Ballesteros was the best trouble-shot player who ever lived. It didn’t matter how far in the woods you put that guy, he’d find a way to get out. But Seve inadvertently put a lot of big numbers on the scorecards of average players, because he inspired them to take dumb chances.
Lee Trevino

I was born in Boston. I spent time in Boston and in Spain. My family now lives in Spain. I moved to New York when I was 19 years old and I have lived here ever since. For me, I feel like I have spent 10 years sharing that story over and over again. And now it seems like it’s not enough.

Liv Tyler
I could give you a long list of things I like about Britain, but essentially what it comes down to is that I feel about Britain the same way I feel about my wife.

My mother and dad were big animal lovers, too. I just don’t know how I would have lived without animals around me. I’m fascinated by them – both domestic pets and the wild community. They just are the most interesting things in the world to me, and it’s made such a difference in my lifetime.

I’ve lived through what seems to most – and myself – many lives.

I lived a sloppy life. So I took very small increments in my life. I started making my bed. I started cleaning my room. There were dishes in the sink. It started off with doing small house chores.

Svetlana Alexievich

Jesus said, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is within you.’ I think if he lived nowadays, instead of ‘kingdom,’ he would have said, ‘dimension.’ And ‘heaven’ refers to a sense of vastness or spaciousness.
Eckhart Tolle
My mother was a very beautiful lady, I thought. She was very good to me. I guess – she died when I was nine and a half, but if she had lived, I probably wouldn’t be trying to play guitar. She wanted me to be known, but as something else. Not a guitar player.

He has not lived badly whose birth and death has been unnoticed by the world.

The only way I see the world now is through coming out of and growing up and living in Somalia. In the time of war, everyone was basically trying to live and manage the best they could.

K’naan

Zawe Ashton
I know how I like my house. I like it cute and cozy and a little funky, and I like it to feel lived in and worn, and I like the things inside of it to work. That’s all. And for me, it’s fine that my house’s interior suggests that I might not spend every waking moment thinking about how it looks.
Glennon Doyle Melton

I lived in France during the ’60s. I was there from the early ’60s until 1970, so my view of the ’60s is more global. It was a time of tremendous transition, not only for America but for the whole world.
Jane Fonda
I used to know Jennifer Love Hewitt. We lived in the same apartment building when I was about… jeez, I guess it was when I was doing ‘Christmas Vacation’, so I was about 13 or 14.

When I was alone, I lived on eggplant, the stove top cook’s strongest ally. I fried it and stewed it, and ate it crisp and sludgy, hot and cold. It was cheap and filling and was delicious in all manner of strange combinations. If any was left over, I ate it cold the next day on bread.

Aaron Paul
I have lived with my husband more than I have with my parents… I live beside him, and know his worries, his hopes, and his dreams for his nation. We believe that things happen by design, not in an arbitrary way. And we believe it is our duty to make things happen.

Rudolf Otto
Smell is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived.

Michael B. Jordan
I really lived and breathed Miss Universe.

Dante Alighieri

Muhammad Ali
A lot of people think, ‘I’ll give acting or poetry or filmmaking a try. And if it doesn’t work out I’ll go get a law degree, do something else that’s more practical.’ For me I went the reverse way. I lived the back-up plan.

I lived through the garbage. I might as well dine on the caviar.

Christian Siriano
I have nothing against respecting people who lived before, but we have no responsibility toward them.
Leon Kass
I have lived in other cities but been inside of only one. I once wore all the windows of Chicago and all its doorways on a key ring. Salons, mansions, alleys, courtrooms, depots, factories, hotels, police cells, the lake front, the rooftops and the sidewalks were my haberdashery.
Ben Hecht
I have always lived beyond my means. I am still trying to live beyond my means, but it is getting harder all the time. I am very rich.

Football has been my life and Real Madrid my home and together we have lived unique moments.

Neon Hitch
I love the way the game of golf is lived and played in Scotland. I always have.
Tom Watson
It pleased the public to think I lived the easy, carefree life – the playboy of golf.

Every tyrant who has lived has believed in freedom for himself.

Frankie Valli
When I lived in Baltimore, I would come down fairly often to go to the Hirshhorn, and one of my good friends from high school went to Georgetown. I actually ended up going to Annapolis a lot. I had a car, and it was such a serene place to drive.
Abbi Jacobson
I, of course, was born as if I was a movie star in my head. Even though I had nothing, in my head I was always royalty. My mother always said, ‘I don’t know where you came from’. I didn’t have their value system. And I always lived beyond my means.
Karan Johar

H. L. Mencken

We lived in the bowels of New York City. It was a struggle just to survive. This nice suburban kid hadn’t had to do much of that before.

Klaus Kinski
I don’t worry about protein. I don’t worry about all that. I’m from old school. I grew up in south Georgia. They didn’t worry about cholesterol or protein. They went out and worked and lived a long time, so I don’t put a lot of worries in my mind.
Herschel Walker
My husband’s a lawyer, and I lived a lawyer’s wife’s life.

Ezra Taft Benson
There’s a big mistake that people make with history, which is to think that people in the past were just like us, but wearing crinolines. They lived in different worlds.
Lucy Worsley
I look at my father. He is one of my heroes. He is such an incredible, classy man. He was such a great father and such a great husband in so many ways, and we lived through some pretty tough times losing my mom. When I see all that he did, I think, ‘Wow, that’s a really wonderful man.’
Emmanuelle Chriqui
I don’t want to have lived in vain like most people. I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death!
Anne Frank
My parents weren’t around much, but I assumed everybody’s family was the same. I didn’t know people had mummies and daddies who would give them milk and cookies after school. I just thought everybody lived on Central Park West and they had a nanny to take care of them.
Stephen Sondheim
Everyone’s the hero in their own story. You’ve lived your life. You’re the good guy of your life, the protagonist of your own movie. Everyone knows that they have more in them to offer than they sometimes show.

I didn’t go to school a full year until I was 11 or 12, so I lived in books. I really was an observer of life.

Tori Bowie
I lived on my own when I was living in New York City when I was 18, working on a show. And that definitely kind of grows you up a little faster than a normal 18-year-old in college, so I think so. I think I’ve got some street smarts.
Alexandra Chando
I don’t want to have lived in vain like most people. I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death!
Anne Frank

George Lucas
Wrong life cannot be lived rightly.
Theodor W. Adorno

Michael J. Fox
My grandfather lived across the garden from us, and in his attic he had a lot of radios, appliances and inventions that he had made over 50 years, such as a keyboard called a clavioline, which can be heard on some Beatles songs – it was popular in the 60s. So we had all that at home.
Michel Gondry
I used to live in Ethiopia as a child, and I lived there when Haile Selassie was the emperor.

People are very complex. And for a psychologist, you get fascinated by the complexity of human beings, and that is what I have lived with, you know, in my career all of my life, is the complexity of human beings.
Daniel Kahneman
I’ve always written. There’s a journal which I kept from about 9 years old. The man who gave it to me lived across the street from the store and kept it when my grandmother’s papers were destroyed. I’d written some essays. I loved poetry, still do. But I really, really loved it then.
Maya Angelou
I would not want to be called a feminist. The feminists don’t believe in success for women and, of course, I believe that American women are the most fortunate people who ever lived on the face of the earth, can do anything they make up their minds to do.
Phyllis Schlafly
I lived next to Russian soldiers. We had Russian army guys in our house when I grew up. We made lemonade for them; they were everywhere. I had a Russian school. I grew up with Russian traditions, I know Russian songs… it infiltrates me a lot. I even speak a little Russian.
Till Lindemann
My mother is white. My biological father is black. When my mother was 17, she got pregnant. They lived in Waterloo, Iowa, which at the time in 1971 was a very segregated society.

Frederick William Robertson
Your life changes. Everything has to be done perfectly, and I didn’t follow that. I lived my life as if I wasn’t in the public eye. I thought, ‘I’m young. I have the right to experience new things, and if I want to go to a bar and get drunk, that’s my prerogative.’
Shannen Doherty
I lived rough, by my wits, was homeless, lived on the streets, lived on friends’ floors, was happy, was miserable.

I remember when I was 15 or 16 years old, I couldn’t imagine what life would be like past the age of 30, just because I didn’t know that many men who had lived beyond their 20s.
Black Thought
My book collection is primarily in America, since that’s where I’ve lived most of my life.

Marlon Brando. The finest actor who ever lived. He was my idol when I was 13. He’s done enough work to last two lifetimes. Everything I do, I think: Can Brando play this with me?
Barbra Streisand
Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest.

Alicia Keys
I’m not a techie, but I don’t know how I lived without an iPad! Mine comes with me everywhere. As greatest inventions go, it’s up there with electricity and cars.
Joanna Garcia
I grew up in a big sky country. Then I lived in Manhattan, where you can only see the sky between buildings, and then I went into a building where you couldn’t see the sky at all. I didn’t like that so much.
Linda Ronstadt
My dad lived a good life. He was a simple guy. His family had been poor, and he joined the Marines to be able to send money home to his mom and dad and brothers and sisters. He genuinely had the intention to live a good life and to respect other people.
Brendon Burchard
It doesn’t matter that I didn’t win a trophy because I did it my way and I lived the dream.
Alan Shearer
Honor is a gift a man gives himself. You can be as good as anyone that ever lived. If you can read, you can learn everything that anyone ever learned. But you’ve got to want it.
Ricky Gervais
Every child growing up will look to their parents, my mother and my father. My grandmother lived with us. I picked up quite a bit of family lore and history from her, which was interesting.
John Hume
Mick Jagger is one of the greatest athletes who ever lived, just for how much he puts into it onstage.
Axl Rose
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

I never officially came out in any kind of really public way. I just always lived very simply and openly, but the press has never made a big fuss about me or said anything to me.
Lily Tomlin
I have lived in a flurry of images, but I will go out in a freeze frame.
Anthony Quinn
Most men who have really lived have had, in some share, their great adventure. This railway is mine.
James J. Hill
In everyone there sleeps. A sense of life lived according to love. To some it means the difference they could make. By loving others, but across most it sweeps. As all they might have done had they been loved. That nothing cures.
Philip Larkin
I’m really interested in older women, to be honest, because they have lived a life that I’ve not yet lived. So I really want to learn from them, and I think culturally we tend to dispose of women once they get to a certain age and they don’t look a certain way.
Amanda de Cadenet
How can you possibly reconcile the justice of God with the idea that only through Christ can you be saved? Most of the world lives and dies and never even hears of Christ. There has to be some mechanism set up for all those who have ever lived to have an opportunity to hear of Christ.
Stephen Covey
I reject the idea of work-life balance. The phrase is a bald-faced lie, designed to hang over the human psyche like the Sword of Damocles, because balance presumes an even distribution of weight, of value. But anyone who has ever lived understands that no set of tips or tricks can create a lifestyle equilibrium.
Stacey Abrams
I lived in Cyprus for six years where I learnt all about flatbreads.
Paul Hollywood
My mother is my first role model. We have lived every dream together. The way she has balanced everything in life makes me want to be like her.
Manushi Chhillar
I told the Inland Revenue I didn’t owe them a penny because I lived near the seaside.
Ken Dodd
I wouldn’t write anything autobiographical. If you’ve lived a life like Laurence of Arabia, it might be a consideration, but otherwise it’s a little bit vain, it seems to me.
James Lee Burke
I lived in Paris when I was 20 and 21, and actually knew people that worked for the government there, that talked about terrorism in the country 20 years ago.
Andie MacDowell
I wish I’d lived in New York in my early twenties. Or learned to speak more languages at a young age. I didn’t do either.
Carrie Brownstein
I’m someone who is very sentimental and nostalgic and attached to the homes I lived in, and I think moving is a traumatic experience.
David Lowery
From Calcutta has gone forth a living stream of knowledge in many branches of study. It is inspiring to think of the long succession of scholars, both Indian and European, who have lived in this city, made it their own, and given it of their best.
C. V. Raman
I didn’t worry about leaving the fast lane – I was just so consumed with my baby that it seemed like the right thing to do. I never felt like I left New York, though. If you’ve lived in a place and loved it, you never feel like you left it.
Sissy Spacek
My grandfather lived to be late 90s on one side and on the other side, 70s or something. And my father died young, at 63. But he didn’t take very good care of himself.
Clint Eastwood
I lived in a kind of dream of communism.
Bernardo Bertolucci
For many years, I have lived uncomfortably with the belief that most planning and architectural design suffers for lack of real and basic purpose. The ultimate purpose, it seems to me, must be the improvement of mankind.
James Rouse
People who lived in the 1920s and ’30s and ’40s were not so different from us. In some ways, they were probably better citizens than we are. They had longer attention spans, for example. Educated people tended to read a bit more than we did.
Timothy D. Snyder
I’m the greatest thing that ever lived! I’m the king of the world! I’m a bad man. I’m the prettiest thing that ever lived.
Muhammad Ali
A man acquainted with history may, in some respect, be said to have lived from the beginning of the world, and to have been making continual additions to his stock of knowledge in every century.
David Hume
I don’t really think about having had a hard life. It was just my life, and it’s all I knew. It made me who I am – all the good and bad – and it’s where all of the songs on Here For The Party came from. I’ve lived them all.
Gretchen Wilson
The truth is, I’m proud of the life I’ve lived so far, and though I’ve made my share of mistakes, I have no regrets.
Carly Fiorina
My life was a mystery even as I lived it.
Melissa Gilbert
Romantic love, or sex, is the only good thing in a life that is being lived in a dark way.
Alan Furst
It’s worth being suspicious of writers – or anyone! – who does that myth-making thing. There’s always a tendency to retrospectively impose structures on a life. Life as it’s lived has a far more complex shape.
Guy Gavriel Kay
Life lived for tomorrow will always be just a day away from being realized.
Leo Buscaglia
The people you see in Nigeria today have always lived as neighbors in the same space for as long as we can remember. So it’s a matter of settling down, lowering the rhetoric, the level of hostility in the rhetoric is too high.
Chinua Achebe
When I lived in L.A. full time, I moved often – fourteen different neighbourhoods in sixteen years.
Michael Connelly
Race prejudice can’t be talked down, it must be lived down.
Francis J. Grimke
Being Southern and being the guy I’ve been all my life, I’ve lived more on the lighter side of life. I have a dark side, but that’s not where I come from. A lot of artists like to come from that.
Josh Holloway
Today is a most unusual day, because we have never lived it before; we will never live it again; it is the only day we have.
William Arthur Ward
In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed.
Sid Caesar
A life lived of choice is a life of conscious action. A life lived of chance is a life of unconscious creation.
Neale Donald Walsch
I moved to Lucerne, where I have lived happily with my family ever since.
Carl Spitteler
Because I was an only child, I lived in a very grown-up world.
Nicole Fosse
We lived and breathed acting.
David Naughton
The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation’s history. I mean in this century’s history. But we all lived in this century. I didn’t live in this century.
Dan Quayle
I don’t write anything that I haven’t lived. In terms of integrity, you have to write what you live. And if you write beyond what you live, it is theory. And theory is not helpful. It is just not.
John Eldredge
My mother and I lived in an apartment complex in a neighborhood. So there was a gaggle of kids. Every day after school, we’d just meet up in a field, and some game would be chosen, Wiffle ball or tag, and you’d play that until the streetlights came on.
Jon Hamm
This is the precept by which I have lived: Prepare for the worst; expect the best; and take what comes.
Hannah Arendt
If I have any justification for having lived it’s simply, I’m nothing but faults, failures and so on, but I have tried to make a good pair of shoes. There’s some value in that.
Arthur Miller
Our lifetime may be the last that will be lived out in a technological society.
Arthur C. Clarke
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
Henry David Thoreau
When I lived in Egypt, we always wore kaftans. I had cashmere kaftans from Halston. You put on a kaftan in your backyard, and it’s like you’re in Ibiza.
Iman
As you grow, you stretch. You become more, and you have more to give if you’ve lived and learned and experienced. And I try to stay healthy. I eat as healthy as I can. I drink lots of water, and I work out just about every day of my life.
Jenifer Lewis
Within our culture, every school has a swimming pool. We lived on the coast. People swam in the surf. It’s a very sporty nation and at that particular time anyone who had an artistic bent was very much an outsider. So if you liked reading or ideas or playing the piano then your dad viewed you as a sissy, basically.
Geoffrey Rush
My mum and dad ran a family cafe in Sligo for 35 years and worked long hours. We grew up in a very hard-working family and had a lovely atmosphere, as we lived above the restaurant. It definitely made me want to work hard, whatever I chose to do. As the baby of seven kids, I was definitely a bit spoilt.
Shane Filan
It would absolutely suck if you paid a few bucks for a book only to find that on the first page it said, ‘Once upon a time they all lived happily ever after’ and the rest of the book was blank.
Simon Travaglia
My verses stand gawping a bit. I never get used to this. They’ve lived here long enough.
Hugo Claus
When I look at it, I don’t really like people, and socializing is really awful. Outside of my family, friends, and those connected to my job, I don’t think I actively want to meet anyone. I’ve always lived in the country, after all.
Akira Toriyama
I’ve never really lived a conventional life, so I think it’s quite foolish for me or anyone else to start thinking that I am going to start making conventional choices.
Madonna Ciccone
The more challenges you face in life, the more of life you experience – this lived experience gives one the ‘influence’ to impact others’ lives.
Lubna Olayan
N.Y. is like second home to me. I love that city. I have lived there for a couple of years and it’s always a pleasure to go back there.
Abhay Deol
This is a moment that I deeply wish my parents could have lived to share. My father would have enjoyed what you have so generously said of me-and my mother would have believed it.
Lyndon B. Johnson
We lived in this ghetto during the worst excesses of the Seventies. When the tartan gangs came to wreck our estate, we had to defend it. We were barricaded in with diggers and earth-movers. It wasn’t a case of joining the Republican cause, or the IRA – we were fighting for our very existence.
Adrian Dunbar
I lived at admiralty house from 2002 until 2006 on advice from special branch on security grounds as defence secretary. The alternative of providing comprehensive security at my personal property would have entailed significant extra costs to the taxpayer.
Geoff Hoon
We played hard and we partied hard. I’m not ashamed of that. I was no angel – I did some things I shouldn’t have done, lived a lifestyle I shouldn’t have lived. I had a blast at times; other times, I probably compromised my job, my duty to do my job, to be ready as a professional.
David Cone
Selam is our most complete skeleton of a three-year-old girl who lived and died 3.3 million years ago. She belongs to the species known as Australopithecus afarensis.
Zeresenay Alemseged
I have always lived in Amsterdam. During the war, we inhabited the Rivieren neighborhood where many Jews lived at the time. Our downstairs neighbors were Jews, and there were also Jews a few houses from us. We saw how they were rounded up and taken away. That made a very great impression on me.
Els Borst
I’m glad I haven’t lived in vain.
Saul Bellow
If you’re 90 and look good in a mini-skirt, go for it. What is ‘age appropriate’? Such nonsense. My mother lived to 106, so what’s middle-age? Seventy is the new 50.
Loretta Swit
In Italy I have learnt a lot, I have matured both as a man and as a player. I have lived the best years of my career here.
Pavel Nedved
When I’m in Brazil, I’m not Brazilian at all; I am a gringo. And then when I’m in England, I’m not really English, but when I lived in Canada, I was considered too English. So I never really felt like I clicked somewhere or that I belonged to one place.
Mia Goth
When I’m in Brazil, I’m not Brazilian at all; I am a gringo. And then when I’m in England, I’m not really English, but when I lived in Canada, I was considered too English. So I never really felt like I clicked somewhere or that I belonged to one place.
Mia Goth
If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.
Ernest Hemingway
I lived at home and I cycled every morning to the railway station to travel by train to Johannesburg followed by a walk to the University, carrying sandwiches for my lunch and returning in the evening the same way.
Sydney Brenner
I think I lived those years very impersonally. It was almost as though I had erected someone outside myself who was the president’s wife. I was lost somewhere deep down inside myself. That is the way I felt and worked until I left the White House.
Eleanor Roosevelt
I’ve lived a very nomadic life, which I enjoy.
Orlando Bloom
I’ve always been fascinated by numbers. Before I was seventeen years old, I had lived in twenty-one different houses. In my mind, each of those houses had a number.
Robert Indiana
When I came to America from Sweden, Mother and I, we went to Chicago where our relatives lived.
Ann-Margret
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’
Eleanor Roosevelt
People lived in the same apartments for years. You’d meet a group of kids in kindergarten, and you’d still be with them in high school. No one ever left the neighborhood.
Fran Drescher
There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it.
Ernest Hemingway
When you grow up by the sea, you spend a good deal of time looking at the horizon. You wonder what on Earth the waves might bring – and where the sea might deposit you – until one day you know you have lived between two places, the scene of arrival and the point of departure.
Andrew O’Hagan
I have had no control over my life. I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I’m desperately trying to find my way through it.
Emma Watson
I feel like I’ve lived quite a sheltered life, like my mom and dad were quite protective of me.
Leona Lewis
Life must be lived as play.
Plato
My mother lived through the Great Depression. Her family of 11 children pulled themselves up by their bootstraps and moved to wherever there was work at the time. And in rural Oklahoma, that wasn’t easy to find.
Chuck Norris
Upon the farm of the uncle with whom I lived, we did know of the mortgage as some dreadful damper on youthful hopes of things that could not be bought. I do have a vivid recollection that the major purpose of a farm was to produce a living right on the spot for the family.
Herbert Hoover
In a multicultural, diverse society there are countless ways in which people negotiate the everyday lived experience and reality of diversity.
Randa Abdel-Fattah
The goal is to live a full, productive life even with all that ambiguity. No matter what happens, whether the cancer never flares up again or whether you die, the important thing is that the days that you have had you will have lived.
Gilda Radner
There’s a beauty to wisdom and experience that cannot be faked. It’s impossible to be mature without having lived.
Amy Grant
It wasn’t books that inspired me to write. For me, inspiration was simple, immediate: I got it from eating, dancing, talking. I got it from life lived, things touched, from sensuality, from love of life, from our irrefutable connection to the earth.
Laura Esquivel
The acceptance of death gives you more of a stake in life, in living life happily, as it should be lived. Living for the moment.
Sting
All through my twenties, I lived in very walkable cities – Philadelphia, San Francisco, and New York.
Elizabeth Banks
The passion of hatred is so long lived and so obstinate a malady that the surest sign of death in a sick person is their desire for reconciliation.
Jean de la Bruyere
We had a relationship that lasted 44 years. Herbert and I lived together 10 years before we were married. He always gave me a little heart for whatever anniversary.
Uta Hagen
I knew Bobby Dylan back in the days when he lived in the village. He used to come and see me and sing songs for me, saying they ought to go into my next collected book on American folk music.
Alan Lomax
One of the reasons I wanted to do a show about Nashville in Nashville was because when I lived here, the hardest thing to go out and hear was country music. Country was taking place inside the studio and it was an export.
Callie Khouri
I’d lived by quotations, practically all my life.
Loretta Young
We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread.
Viktor E. Frankl
They that have lived a single day have lived an age.
Jean de la Bruyere
Yes, I was inspired by Jack London and still love reading his books. Ernie Banks is another hero because I lived in Chicago for two years as a kid, and I loved that he was the Cubs’ loyal underdog and one of the first African-Americans to make that breakthrough.
Conrad Anker
We are talking about someone who has lived. It must be honored in every respect. The fictional can take any kind of channel – according to the actor’s marriage to the character.
Kate Mulgrew
Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
Soren Kierkegaard
The proper union of gin and vermouth is a great and sudden glory; it is one of the happiest marriages on earth, and one of the shortest lived.
Bernard DeVoto
My husband and I had to raise five of my younger brothers and sisters. They lived with us. We sent them to school.
Dolly Parton
I have lived too long to cherish many illusions about the essential high-mindedness of men when brought into stark confrontation with the issue of control over their security, and their property interests.
Haile Selassie
I shall not die of a cold. I shall die of having lived.
Willa Cather
I have lived poverty. I didn’t choose it. No one would choose humiliation, pain, and rage.
Carolyn Chute
I think the kids in school that laughed at the clothes that we wore and the house that we lived in, and then my mother had to cut hair… I think that was a good motivator. Every time they laughed at me, they just built a fire, and there was only one way to put it out – to try and show ’em I was as good as they were.
Jimmy Dean
I don’t know what my calling is, but I want to be here for a bigger reason. I strive to be like the greatest people who have ever lived.
Will Smith
Not how long, but how well you have lived is the main thing.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Sometimes I feel very bullish about it – this is the age that I am, this is the way that I look, there’s nothing I can do about it and I’m grateful that I’ve lived this long.
Lesley Sharp
I’ve played football with George Best, the greatest footballer that ever lived. That doesn’t make me a footballer. And I’ve sung a duet with Pavarotti. That doesn’t make me an opera singer. I can write and I have a story to tell, but I’m not going to make a career out of it.
Ian Gillan
I’ve, like, lived in a bikini my entire life, so modeling bikinis was, I don’t know. It was just so natural to me.
Alexis Ren
Why love if losing hurts so much? I have no answers anymore; only the life I have lived. The pain now is part of the happiness then.
Anthony Hopkins
My parents never sat down to teach me anything; they lived exemplary life to set a lesson for me.
Jaya Bachchan
If you look at people that have survived crashing in the mountains and lived up in the snow for 40 days – it’s possible to do extraordinary feats.
Sylvester Stallone
I would never have looked at cycling as something I could do had I not got ill and lived in Manchester where British Cycling is.
Kadeena Cox
You’ve never lived till you’ve flown!
Bessie Coleman
There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book.
Marcel Proust
We lived in the provincial town of Ramat Gan where I spent most of my youth adjacent to the chess board.
Arnon Goldfinger
My parents were devoted. Civic minded. We had family counsels. Three of us children against two of them. We lived a ‘Leave It to Beaver’ time.
Sissy Spacek
Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer when I was a lad. From then on, he lived in fear that death was just around the corner, and he set about programming me to work hard and bring in some cash.
Marco Pierre White
Life as a poet and actor truly became full circle as I stood on stage as host of ‘Verses & Flow’ and lived in both of these outfits. It was one of the best experiences of my professional life.
Omari Hardwick
I’m a coastal person. I grew up in Long Island and lived in San Diego. I felt landlocked in Pittsburgh. Psychically, it just wasn’t the place for me.
Alice McDermott
I think we too often make choices based on the safety of cynicism, and what we’re lead to is a life not fully lived. Cynicism is fear, and it’s worse than fear – it’s active disengagement.
Ken Burns
Jesus lived a life that was full of joy and contradictions and fights, you know? If they were to paint a picture of Jesus without contradictions, the gospels would be fake, but the contradictions are a sign of authenticity.
Paulo Coelho
Shake was a dramatist of note; He lived by writing things to quote.
H. C. Bunner
France has lived a long time – eight or nine centuries – and yet art in France, too, was derivative up until the 19th Century.
Raoul Dufy
I just lived it and did my own thing without looking over my shoulder. I think I’m very lucky, considering when I started everything, and the fact that I have a masters in music, and I’ve always worked in music, and that’s what I wanted to do.
Jon Secada
I had time with my mother, but I really lived with my father. One time he gave all his salary so I could travel to a training camp. He couldn’t pay the rent, but he did that.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic
I’ve traveled all over. I’ve been to all 50 states. With my dad in the Navy, I lived in the Philippines from nine to 12, and I had dog, monkey, lizard, everything. Then I was in Hawaii, and I’m spear-fishing, catching octopus with my hands.
Graham Elliot
In no other country is football lived like it is in Italy, almost to the point of overkill. There is too much football on TV and in the papers, there is always talk about football during the week.
Pavel Nedved
I lived a block and a half away from four cousins, and I had three siblings. The Jaeger home was a big, messy, happy family.
Sam Jaeger
I spent many years in Italy, I’ve lived just 5km away from the track and the Monza atmosphere is very special.
Robert Kubica
The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation’s history. I mean in this century’s history. But we all lived in this century. I didn’t live in this century.
Dan Quayle
One of the small joys that’s easy to miss in London is the blue plaques on buildings. These are put up to commemorate the famous on the houses they lived in.
A. A. Gill
As to war, I am and always was a great enemy, at the same time a warrior the greater part of my life and were I young again, should still be a warrior while ever this country should be invaded and I lived.
Daniel Morgan
Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
Ernest Hemingway
Life is lived on the edge.
Will Smith
I have lived life enough to know that I define myself.
Smriti Irani
It is so small a thing to have enjoyed the sun, to have lived light in the spring, to have loved, to have thought, to have done.
Matthew Arnold
I’ve never lied. I think I’ve lived a moral life.
Robert Mapplethorpe
A life lived unexplored is a life not worth living.
Kirk Hammett
There is no man, however wise, who has not at some period of his youth said things, or lived in a way the consciousness of which is so unpleasant to him in later life that he would gladly, if he could, expunge it from his memory.
Marcel Proust
I’m definitely an American, because I grew up here. But I’ve lived very happily in Britain.
Bill Bryson
I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
For one who reads, there is no limit to the number of lives that may be lived, for fiction, biography, and history offer an inexhaustible number of lives in many parts of the world, in all periods of time.
Louis L’Amour
I lived near Santa Cruz for ten years, and the whole time, it bothered me what an exclusionary definition of ‘inclusion’ was in force. Social censure was applied to those who expressed unpopular or uncomfortable ideas.
Kent Beck
Being an only child, I didn’t have any other family but my mom and dad really, since the rest of my family lived quite far away from London.
Tom Hardy
‘Top Boy,’ for some people, was very controversial because it seemed to be portraying black people in a certain light that they thought to be stereotypical. However, what I would say is that the writer went and lived in Hackney in East London for a long time and did his research really well.
Clare-Hope Ashitey
I lived by the candlelight for two years because I couldn’t afford power. It was nice and romantic at the time, but if you can’t afford power you’re pretty broke. You endure it.
Jeremy Renner
I had phenomenal parents. They kept me very grounded, and I lived a normal life.
Zachery Ty Bryan
When you realize who you live for, and who’s important to please, a lot of people will actually start living. I am never going to get caught up in that. I’m gonna look back on my life and say that I enjoyed it – and I lived it for me.
Rihanna
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.
J. K. Rowling
Tomorrow do thy worst, I have lived today.
John Dryden
This is life we’ve been given, made to be lived out, so… live out loud.
Steven Curtis Chapman
Whatever their defects, Christian fundamentalists have lived peacefully among us in America for several hundred years.
Maggie Gallagher
Growing up in northern California has had a big influence on my love and respect for the outdoors. When I lived in Oakland, we would think nothing of driving to Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz one day and then driving to the foothills of the Sierras the next day.
Tom Hanks
Having lived in London since the 1980s, I would have come across, or my friends across, cops who were in the Metropolitan Police who had been in the RUC.
Adrian Dunbar
I’m certain that it was an incredible gift for me to not only be friends with some of the greatest blues people who’ve ever lived, but to learn how they played, how they sang, how they lived their lives, ran their marriages, and talked to their kids.
Bonnie Raitt
I moved to L.A., and I lived in the Oakland Apartments, which is this notorious hub for actor children and their stage moms. For the first few years that I lived there, Hilary Duff and Frankie Muniz frequented the apartments. I was much younger than them at the time.
Britt Robertson
I come from a very humble background. My father had to work really hard to become an assistant director. For a large part of his youth, he worked in a mill and took up odd jobs to make ends meet. We lived in a small room and could only afford a meal a day.
Dhanush
I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.
Diane Ackerman
Since it is not granted to us to live long, let us transmit to posterity some memorial that we have at least lived.
E. Joseph Cossman
Almost the moment he died, they put him in Playboy as one of the greatest drummers, which he was – there’s no doubt about it. There’s never been anybody since. He’s one of the greatest drummers that ever lived.
Jimmy Page
When I saw all of the people I have known all these years, when we got together, it was scary because B.B King and I lived in the same place in Nevada.
Ruth Brown
Reba McEntire came through town when I lived in Texas. She had this amazing theatrical show with, like, 13 different wardrobe changes. I was eight and I was like, Wow, I wanna do that!
LeAnn Rimes
If someone was making a movie about F1 in the last six months, they wouldn’t need to add a Hollywood ending. If they do make that movie, it’s got to be ‘The Curious Case Of Jenson Button,’ where I’ve lived my life backwards. I’d like Johnny Depp to play me but he wouldn’t be quite right.
Jenson Button
The people who have impacted the world didn’t live long. Martin Luther King. John F. Kennedy. These people who impact the world were not old people, but they lived so effectively that we cannot erase them from history.
Myles Munroe
I’ve struggled a lot in my life with feeling like a failure. I lived in a ‘prison of perfectionism,’ holding myself to a standard I couldn’t possibly live up to. Then I became a mom, and all of a sudden, there arose even more opportunities for failure.
Sarah Drew
I am not worried that the Egyptians will suddenly invade Ethiopia. Nobody who has tried that has lived to tell the story.
Meles Zenawi
The weather is the worst. I lived many years in Lisbon and then went to Monaco, places that are similar in terms of weather and food. In Manchester, it’s eight or nine months of cold, and that makes a difference, but apart from that, I’m really enjoying the city.
Bernardo Silva
I liked very much when we lived in Hampstead. We would go for walks on the Heath. I liked it better than living in the centre of town.
Daniel Barenboim
Malcolm X was the first political person in this country that I really identified with. If he had lived and not been purged, I probably would have joined the Muslims.
Huey Newton
I moved from Cleveland to L.A. with a girlfriend, we broke up, and I lived out of my car for a year and a half, on the road with nothing on my mind but getting my act good enough to be on ‘The Tonight Show.’
Drew Carey
I’ve been able to look at the world differently from three continents practically. I’ve always lived between India and the U.S. When I married Mahmood I became a daughter-in-law of Africa. That really changed my worldview. I can see it from so many perspectives.
Mira Nair
Why isn’t it natural for people who have lived and worked at something to want to use the knowledge and capacity in a new way, free from the burden of making a living?
James Rouse
History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
Maya Angelou
That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much.
Robert Louis Stevenson
We lived in Germany; my father was in the Army, and they figured I would have more consistency at boarding school. That kind of gives you a thick skin.
Ed Weeks
When I was a very little boy, I lived underneath the air pattern of LaGuardia airport in New York and I watched the planes fly to their destinations. I was in love with the design of these airplanes.
John Travolta
I made a conscious decision back then that I would rather be the best actress who ever lived than the most famous one.
Sally Kirkland
Just because a woman is over 50 does not mean she no longer has anything to offer. If anything, we have so much more to offer! We have lived life, we get better with age. I do my best work now in my 60s. Sure, I could retire; but what would I do? Play Bingo? I think not!
Dawn Wells
I have had to empty two family homes during the last few years – first, the house that had been my grandmother’s since 1923, and then my own country home, which we had lived in for over twenty years.
Penelope Lively
Living in a community with very wounded people, I came to see that I had lived most of my life as a tightrope artist trying to walk on a high, thin cable from one tower to the other, always waiting for the applause when I had not fallen off and broken my leg.
Henri Nouwen
Jesus Christ belonged to the true race of prophets. He saw with open eye the mystery of the soul. Drawn by its severe harmony, ravished with its beauty, he lived in it and had his being there. Alone in all history, he estimated the greatness of man.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I was named after my Jewish grandfather who left Poland early in the 20th century. What I knew from an early age was that he had lived most of his life in England, his Jewish wife had died, and he married a non-Jewish woman who was my grandmother.
Morris Gleitzman
It’s ungrateful to be wishing you were doing something else at the moment you are living. You haven’t lived in the moment that you are really living, you are wishing you were somewhere else.
Suzanne Farrell
Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering.
Theodore Roosevelt
I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken – and I’d rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.
Margaret Mitchell
My childhood was very sheltered. I grew up in a palace. But I lived in Morocco as a Moroccan citizen.
Mohammed VI of Morocco
I have lived much of my life among molecules. They are good company.
George Wald
Growing up, I wouldn’t say I was poor. But my parents, although we lived in a nice, middle-class home, they had their struggles.
Jay IDK
He’s not the finest character that ever lived. But he’s a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid.
Arthur Miller
I’m most interested in people who’ve lived life in the extreme, which is what draws me to crime fiction.
Nick Petrie
When I was a child, I lived in Morocco, and I would always buy a lot of beads from the markets and to make jewellery for friends. Later, at 18, I would do my own clothes and make my own patterns. When I first came to New York, people just assumed I was a stylist because I was so into fashion.
Maripol
Always I have lived with two sounds – one political, one musical.
Mikis Theodorakis
Let your mind see every detail of your own special version of the very best that life can be. If you could make the world exactly to your liking, consider very specifically just how that world would be. If you could spend your time doing precisely what you wish, how would the moments of your life be lived?
Ralph Marston
Humanity lives and always has lived on certain elemental provisions.
Charles Wagner
The highest and most beautiful things in life are not to be heard about, nor read about, nor seen but, if one will, are to be lived.
Soren Kierkegaard
I lived with my ‘Bonanza’ family for 14 years. On ‘Battlestar,’ we jumped right in and got to know each other later. That’s just the way television is.
Lorne Greene
I was born in Romania and later lived in Vienna, Austria, for a few years, and I eventually made my way over to New York in ’95.
Sebastian Stan
Don’t Cry Daddy is a pretty sad song. He got to the end of it and it was just real quiet and Elvis says, I’m gonna cut that someday for my daddy. And, by God, he did. He lived up to his word.
Mac Davis
To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.
Roger Ebert
Culturally, I have always been part of the proletariat. I lived side by side with the sons of glassblowers, fishermen and smugglers. The stories they told were shaper satires about the hypocrisy of authority and the middle classes, the two-facedness of teachers and lawyers and politicians. I was born politicized.
Dario Fo
I grew up in poverty on the edge of a golf course. I saw how people lived on the other side of the tracks, the upper crust and the WASPs at the country club. We had chickens and pigs in our yards. We butchered every year. I’ll never forget those things.
Arnold Palmer
For the first few years we lived in a tiny rented cottage at the bottom of a friend’s garden. We often joked that there was plenty of film in the fridge, but not too much food!
Nigel Dennis
I was raised in a Baptist household, went to a Catholic church, lived in a Jewish neighborhood, and had the biggest crush on the Muslim girls from one neighborhood over.
Will Smith
Life must be lived as play.
Plato
Other dogs may do their jobs in their own unique and perfectly wonderful ways, but there will always be that dog that no dog will replace, the dog that will make you cry even when it’s been gone for more years than it could ever have lived.
Meghan Daum
I always felt really alone because no one wanted to talk about the things that I enjoyed, and that was really rap music and hip-hop as a culture. You know, having the shoes, using the words, buying the magazines, seeing the videos. And I had nobody to share it with, so I feel like I lived a lot online.
Iggy Azalea
Dad was a baker, and we lived above the bakery, so I was always popping down to have an apple pie or a doughnut or a custard or gypsy tart: I had a very sweet tooth, and I think that that was what got me into doing what I do now.
Paul Hollywood
Some of the evil of my tale may have been inherent in our circumstances. For years we lived anyhow with one another in the naked desert, under the indifferent heaven.
T. E. Lawrence
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
Bessie Anderson Stanley
We lived in Northern Quebec, and the nearest school was thirty miles away, so my mother took on the task of home schooling me. She spoke to some friends, received some instructions from the provincial school board, and found some interesting books that perhaps I might find useful.
Willard Boyle
My kids are not known, and I think that is very important. So far they have lived a normal life, and will continue to do so. I feel they should have the possibility to live a free life without the burden of fame I have created.
Michael Schumacher
When it’s good, cinema can be one of the most important things in a person’s life. A film can be a catalyst for change. You witness this and it is an incredibly spiritual experience that I’d never lived before; well, maybe only in a football match.
Gael Garcia Bernal
If Sir John A. MacDonald or any other leader of that day were here now, he would have a different program from that of sixty years ago. He sought to give his people policies suited to the time in which he lived.
John Bracken
I never took guitar lessons. I took classical piano lessons from the age of six when we lived in Holland. And when we moved to America, it was just the typical thing except I was really good at it; so was my brother.
Eddie Van Halen
He who has done his best for his own time has lived for all times.
Friedrich Schiller
I’ve lived in England, France, Spain, Portugal and Germany in the ’80s. I don’t like being settled. It’s not really healthy.
Denny Laine
Socrates gave a lifetime to the outpouring of his substance in the shape of the greatest benefits bestowed on all who cared to receive them. In other words, he made those who lived in his society better men and sent them on their way rejoicing.
Xenophon
How shall the soul of a man be larger than the life he has lived?
Edgar Lee Masters
I lived in America for a long time before I started working as an actor. Some actors show up on set and have never done an American accent before, so they rely on a slew of technical mechanisms. Part of what makes an accent is understanding why people speak that way – you have to understand the culture.
Idris Elba
I am of a healthy long lived race, and our minds improve with age.
William Butler Yeats
I have lived most of my life with the conviction that I don’t dream, because I never could retrieve a dream.
Theodore Sturgeon
Tears are sometimes an inappropriate response to death. When a life has been lived completely honestly, completely successfully, or just completely, the correct response to death’s perfect punctuation mark is a smile.
Julie Burchill
A man has to have goals – for a day, for a lifetime – and that was mine, to have people say, ‘There goes Ted Williams, the greatest hitter who ever lived.’
Ted Williams
I grew up in Gothenburg, Sweden. I also lived in Ghana for four years and in Australia for one year. My dad was working abroad so we traveled with him. My mom is Indian and was adopted in Sweden.
Kelly Gale
Here’s how I’ve lived my life: I’ve never been late to a set. I make films I believe in. I feel privileged to be able to do what I love.
Tom Cruise
My mom is from Venezuela, and my dad is German and Japanese, and we lived in Brazil when I was a kid for a couple of years, and then I grew up on Long Island. I think all the traveling and all the nationalities put that stuff in my head. I was just around it a lot.
Fred Armisen
On the banks of the Nile, the Rosetta branch, I lived an enjoyable childhood in the City of Disuq, which is the home of the famous mosque, Sidi Ibrahim.
Ahmed Zewail
I am a bigger-picture manager because I’ve lived through something that’s a big picture.
Sheryl Sandberg
Ariana has completed me. I felt I’d lived all my high points, till the baby came and life’s been on a high ever since. It feels like with her I’m discovering innocence all over again.
Mahima Chaudhry
I wanted to write the kind of poetry that people read and remembered, that they lived by – the kinds of lines that I carried with me from moment to moment on a given day without even having chosen to.
Tracy K. Smith
I love Seattle. I lived out in Seattle for a while, and the food there is so phenomenal. It’s so fresh and gorgeous, and just beautiful and simple. I really love that place.
Damaris Phillips
My maternal grandma was a tough, tough lady and a stern woman, who lost her husband young and raised six kids by herself. She lived in a mining community in Upstate New York and ran a boarding house for miners. She took care of an entire family and miners who lived in the house as well.
Steve Carell
Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood. All is riddle, and the key to a riddle is another riddle.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be a life long or short, its completeness depends on what it was lived for.
David Starr Jordan
I grew up in Nova Scotia, and my uncle lived close to the Bay of Fundy. We would walk across the mud flats out to an island, and then you’d climb a cliff and be in the forest. And if the water came in, the basin would fill up with, like, a 30-foot tide. It was phenomenal.
James Tupper
I lived in an area where there were a lot of rock musicians, and we got together regularly in our studios.
Ken Hensley
My personal life is lived as ‘me,’ but my professional life is lived as other people. In other words, when I go to the office, I lie down, dream, and become ‘someone else.’ That’s my job.
Wallace Shawn
When I lived in London, I worked at the U.N. for a while as its human rights and refugees officer. I have two degrees, and my second was in radio. I was a programmer and news reporter in Canada. My CV looks bananas.
Hannah Simone
My parents were laborers so we lived on South Park, which was a low-income region of Seattle. You had a choice – you either joined or formed a gang or you let others bully you.
Jack Bowman
I was born in our Chembur house in Mumbai, where we lived for five years after which we shifted to our Lokhandwala house.
Arjun Kapoor
I have good memories of Real Madrid. Professionally, it was a difficult period, but my experience there was very good in all senses, as I grew a lot, learned many things, and lived with great champions.
Kaka
On my tombstone just write, ‘The sorest loser that ever lived.’
Earl Weaver
I was born in Paris and raised in the suburbs and then lived in the countryside.
Marion Cotillard
Never say no to anything, whatever the universe brings me. I’ve always lived by that.
Ruby Rose
In every age ‘the good old days’ were a myth. No one ever thought they were good at the time. For every age has consisted of crises that seemed intolerable to the people who lived through them.
Brooks Atkinson
I didn’t know how to weigh ideas about poetry. Nothing in the life I lived as a student – and later as wife and mother at the suburban edge of Dublin – suggested I had the wherewithal to do so. But I did have a unit of measurement. It was the measure of my own life.
Eavan Boland
You can say that I lived in Asia for a long time and in Japan I became close to several CIA agents. And you could say that I became an adviser to several CIA agents in the field and, through my friends in the CIA, met many powerful people and did special works and special favors.
Steven Seagal
If you go to Wall Street, there is someone from Harvard, Stanford, etc, who relate to each other by the batch they studied in, the dorm they lived in, and so on.
Shiv Nadar
My musical director, Mark Cherry, is the most wonderful person who ever lived on God’s good green Earth. He’s my director, he does the arrangements. Really, he does everything – including certain janitorial chores!
Brett Somers
I lived in several hotels, yeah. You have to try to make it home.
Matt Bomer
Look, I’m in the top 20 of players who ever lived.
Charles Barkley
I lived in Red Hook, Brooklyn, for about 10 years, and then we moved out to Jersey City after my wife and I bought a house up in the Catskills. I miss Brooklyn, but the commute to the Catskills is about 45 minutes shorter.
Pablo Schreiber
I’m passionate and I travel the world not just as a tourist but to understand cultures… I’ve lived with Masai tribe… I travel the world and bring it back in the form of a research book that would become the starting point for the collection.
John Galliano
I feel like I have lived all over the world since I get to go everywhere to film.
Jackie Chan
I have a great love for nature. That must have started somewhere down back home, I think, because my family own one of the better known gardens in Soochow, so I played there, and I lived there, and so I must have absorbed something there. So I continue to have a great interest in nature.
I. M. Pei
I learned from Jimi Hendrix. They all wanted him to do the tricks, and at the end of his career, he just wanted to play. I lived longer than he did, and I can see how those pressures can really play with your head.
Prince
I want history to remember me… not as the first black woman to have made a bid for the presidency of the United States, but as a black woman who lived in the 20th century and who dared to be herself. I want to be remembered as a catalyst for change in America.
Shirley Chisholm
Life is an exciting business, and most exciting when it is lived for others.
Helen Keller
This is the man my mother lived for. My career means something now because I’ve worked with Robert Redford.
Jennifer Lopez
What I care about is making money. What I care about is making waves. What I care about is going down as one of, if not, the greatest professional wrestlers to have ever lived.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman
I’ve always admired gardens. My father was a great nature lover and would always take me for walks. We lived not too far away from huge rhododendron estates and azalea estates, and when they’re in bloom in England, they’re just riotous.
Julie Andrews
We are beginning to wonder whether a servant girl hasn’t the best of it after all. She knows how the salad tastes without the dressing, and she knows how life’s lived before it gets to the parlor door.
Djuna Barnes
But when I lived as a monk, solitude is often spoken of as a strength. And so the first thing I’d recommend is finding one thing that you can do every single day that brings you joy. It may be reading a book you love. It may be looking at a beautiful piece of art.
Jay Shetty
For 10 years while I was at ESPN, I lived at the Residence Inn in Southington, Connecticut, near Bristol. I did that because my wife had a great job in New York City, and we had a place in New York City, at 54th and 8th. On Friday, I would come back, and then on Sunday evening I would go back to the Residence Inn.
Skip Bayless
I lived in South America when I was growing up. I spent hours sketching. I was good at drawing, and I was obsessed with fashion, but I was also obsessed with magazines.
Nina Garcia
And if real life was like the movies, I should have lived happily ever after.
Piper Laurie
I believe that many of my young guys lived because I didn’t waste their lives because I didn’t have the vision in my mind of how to destroy the enemy at least cost to our guys and to the innocents on the battlefields.
Jim Mattis
The past can influence the future. When you finish one chapter, you open another, which will be influenced by what you’ve just lived through.
Edgar Davids
I’m tired of living the vanilla, non-offensive life. I think that’s a really sad way to spend my life, and I lived it like that because that’s what I was brought up in, taught to not rock the ship.
Dan Reynolds
I wasn’t brought up as a society girl to go to balls and be a debutante and marry the social set and money and go to parties. No one in my family lived like that. And I never wanted to live like that. I was brought up to believe in work. I always wanted a career. Always.
Lauren Bacall
There is a lot you don’t know about me – a lot. I have definitely lived, that’s for sure. I will just leave it at that.
Neon Hitch
I lived my ‘Mom’ character. I became Devaki.
Sridevi
My parents had us very young. We lived in a modest house. We built forts, we hiked, we went camping and they wanted us to be independent. It’s how children grew up in the 1940s and 50s: outside all the time, playing in the dirt, riding your bike around.
Brooklyn Decker
I never grew up in the Valley. I lived in Compton/Gardena my whole life.
Tyga
No man understands a deep book until he has seen and lived at least part of its contents.
Ezra Pound
Life as we know it, with all its ups and downs, will soon be over. We all will give an accounting to God of how we have lived.
William Wilberforce
A life lived unexplored is a life not worth living.
Kirk Hammett
America had, for one thing, lived in anarchy for – until much more recently than Europe. We had the Wild West, where the cliche of the cowboy movies was the nearest sheriff is 90 miles away, and so you had to pack a gun and defend yourself.
Steven Pinker
Seve Ballesteros was the best trouble-shot player who ever lived. It didn’t matter how far in the woods you put that guy, he’d find a way to get out. But Seve inadvertently put a lot of big numbers on the scorecards of average players, because he inspired them to take dumb chances.
Lee Trevino
I push myself hard. I don’t like pain, exactly, but as a ballerina, I lived in constant pain. At ballet school in Stockholm, I remember we had a locker where if someone had been to the doctor and gotten painkillers, we divided them among us. In a sense, we were all addicted.
Alicia Vikander
The fact that I’ve lived this long is not really an achievement. Time passes; we age… it’s natural. This is why it annoys me when a person watches a movie and tells me that it was ‘time pass.’ Would time not have passed if he hadn’t watched the film?
Kamal Haasan
If you lived through the shooting of Jaws, you can live through anything.
Sam Mendes
Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.
W. H. Auden
Dear World, I am leaving because I am bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool. Good luck.
George Sanders
Death is really a great blessing for humanity, without it there could be no real progress. People who lived for ever would not only hamper and discourage the young, but they would themselves lack sufficient stimulus to be creative.
Alfred Adler
I had very few friends. There was nobody I could trust. I left home when I was fifteen. I lived in Washington Square Park.
Jean-Michel Basquiat
I was born in St. Louis; I lived there for three weeks and then my father graduated from St. Louis University, so we all got in the car and split. I don’t really remember much. I grew up in Connecticut most of my life and then four years in Germany. My father worked for a helicopter company, so we went over there.
Kevin Nealon
We should be proud of our country when we have done something to be proud of, when we have lived up to our own standards. But the flip side of genuine pride is being able to recognize when we have fallen short, and to hold ourselves to account.
Anne-Marie Slaughter
I’m an Air force Brat and I’ve lived all over the world and this country and there were people in my community who were gay – nurses, hairdressers, designers – people who just had a different way about themselves.
Pam Grier
When I was leaving Yemen to come to America, things were tough. My dad had just been laid off, and it was a challenge. When I lived in Yemen, I thought America was a perfect place. Everything was bigger and better. I dreamed big. The American dream, you know? You have to work hard for your dream to come true.
Barkhad Abdi
I’m the most recognized and loved man that ever lived cuz there weren’t no satellites when Jesus and Moses were around, so people far away in the villages didn’t know about them.
Muhammad Ali
As a child, I was tortured because my mother was a brilliant seamstress who made most of my clothes. I was despised by the children at school because I looked like I was going to an opening every day. We weren’t wealthy at all; we lived in a row house in Philadelphia.
Lynda Resnick
Everybody now admits that apartheid was wrong, and all I did was tell the people who wanted to know where I come from how we lived in South Africa. I just told the world the truth. And if my truth then becomes political, I can’t do anything about that.
Miriam Makeba
Of course I’ve had a problem with people taking me seriously because of my age. People are always going do that because you’re less experienced; you haven’t lived as much.
Zendaya
Ah, well, do I wish that we lived in a world where gender didn’t figure so prominently? Of course. Do I even think about myself as a woman when I go to make art? Of course not.
Judy Chicago
I lived for big waves. It’s where I felt comfortable and I could surf with ease. With smaller waves, it didn’t feel as natural.
Garrett McNamara
Authentic values are those by which a life can be lived, which can form a people that produces great deeds and thoughts.
Allan Bloom
I didn’t have parents, so I lived in people’s homes… And because I grew up with no parental role models, I learned to become my own friend, eventually my own father and my own mother.
John Lone
She who has never loved has never lived.
John Gay
It’s hard to separate your remembered childhood and its emotional legacy from the childhoods that are being lived out in your house, by your children. If you’re lucky, your kids will help you make that distinction.
Ayelet Waldman
I have lived long enough both in years and in accomplishments.
Julius Caesar
My daughter lived with my wife being ill since she was 2.
Titus Welliver
It was times like these when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived.
Harper Lee
My mother had lived in London since I was little, so she never got to see my school plays and stuff.
Lauren Graham
Have you ever lived in the suburbs? It’s sterile. It’s nothing. It’s wasting your life.
Ed Koch
I don’t come from a rich family – it’s not like we lived in a cardboard box, but we didn’t have a ton of money.
Jessica Lynch
Too often, stories about Afghanistan center around the various wars, the opium trade, the war on terrorism. Precious little is said about the Afghan people themselves – their culture, their traditions, how they lived in their country and how they manage abroad as exiles.
Khaled Hosseini
I would say I’ve always lived creativity, but now I – I do it with an intention that’s got a completely different power.
Abigail Washburn
I have lived and slept in the same bed with English countesses and Prussian farm women… no woman has excited passions among women more than I have.
Florence Nightingale
I don’t really know anything about the movie business, even though I’ve lived in Los Angeles my whole life – somehow I’ve never bumped into it.
Lisa See
Waste Management was based in Chicago, but I lived in Ft. Lauderdale and for 10 years had to commute to work – catch the 5 P.M. Sunday flight to Chicago and the midnight return flight on Friday.
Wayne Huizenga
I’ve had women who move to the towns I’m living in, just pack up and move there, never even met ’em before, ’cause they heard I lived there.
GG Allin
My dream as a passionate cook has been to go to Le Cordon Bleu. Never could my most incredible dream have lived up to the experience. The food, the lesson, the chef, the ingredients – all the best of the best. I see why Le Cordon Bleu is world-renowned.
Blake Lively
I lived the stuff that Jackie Collins writes about.
Janice Dickinson
Gonpo Tso was born a princess. As a young woman, she dressed in fur-trimmed robes with fat ropes of coral beads strung around her neck. She lived in an adobe castle on the edge of the Tibetan plateau with a reception room large enough to accommodate the thousand Buddhist monks who once paid tribute to her father.
Barbara Demick
We’ve lived through some extraordinary moments, and the saddest moments as well. We have to learn.
Antoine Griezmann
In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.
S. I. Hayakawa
I was born in Kerala, where my maternal grandparents lived, and stayed there till the age of one, after which I came to Maharashtra to live with my parents and moved all around the state with my father, who worked as a superintendent in an ordnance factory.
Kay Kay Menon
I lived in a tiny Midwest town, so I was always looking for adventure.
Kellan Lutz
I think Tom Paine is one of the greatest men that’s ever lived.
Richard Attenborough
I studied German at school. I lived in Berlin for two years and had a German girlfriend for five years, so I don’t find speaking German particularly difficult. Singing was slightly more difficult.
Martin Gore
I’ve lived in LA for so long, I don’t even know what is real and what isn’t any more.
Dane Cook
Most people, when they lose their dads, they go through a period of mourning and grieving, and time begins to heal their sadness. But we don’t have the opportunity to heal. I know my brother and sister feel the same. The man was probably one of the most photographed people who ever lived.
Nancy Sinatra
Just as Renaissance artists provided narratives for the era they lived in, so do I. I’m always looking beyond the surface. I’ve done that ever since I first picked up a camera.
David LaChapelle
During the Second World War, we lived in a flat on Whitechapel Road in the East End of London. At one point during the blitz, the air-raid sirens went off every night for 30 nights, and each time, my parents would grab my sister and me and take us to the shelter beneath Whitechapel underground station.
Steven Berkoff
It doesn’t matter what people think of me. I’ve lived my life.
Joe Paterno
Life, if well lived, is long enough.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I’ll die before I’m 25, and when I do I’ll have lived the way I wanted to.
Sid Vicious
After I quit the U.S. Ski Team, there was a fair amount of, you know, grief that follows that, and I just wanted to take a year off. And I had a friend that lived in Los Angeles, said I could crash on his couch. And so I just kind of did the first really spontaneous thing I’d done in my young adult life.
Molly Bloom
I lived next to Russian soldiers. We had Russian army guys in our house when I grew up. We made lemonade for them; they were everywhere. I had a Russian school. I grew up with Russian traditions, I know Russian songs… it infiltrates me a lot. I even speak a little Russian.
Till Lindemann
I made records for 20 years, I lived off it. But people would say I made so many mistakes, I did so many things you’re not supposed to do. I had a band name nobody could say. I didn’t play live. I never practiced, I never got better at my instrument.
David Berman
How many emperors and how many princes have lived and died and no record of them remains, and they only sought to gain dominions and riches in order that their fame might be ever-lasting.
Leonardo da Vinci
I’m one of five kids and we lived on a massive farm in New South Wales with my mum and dad.
Abbie Cornish
For many Americans, Osama bin Laden is the paradigmatic Muslim, an absurd conviction for anyone who has lived with Muslims.
Miroslav Volf
As a teenager, I loved ‘The Carol Burnett Show’ and ‘Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In,’ and I lived to watch ‘Monty Python.’
Catherine O’Hara
I understood that my family was rich in love but would probably never own the land my father, John, dreamed of owning. My mother, Willie Ella Mays Clarke, was a washerwoman for poor white folks in the area of Columbus, Georgia where the writer Carson McCullers once lived.
John Henrik Clarke
When I was a kid, I never thought about anything. Never had to think about where I was going to school or what I was going to do. I just lived minute to minute.
Larry Bird
In the real world, as lived and experienced by real people, the demand for human rights and dignity, the longing for liberty and justice and opportunity, the hatred of oppression and corruption and cruelty is reality.
John McCain
Today is a most unusual day, because we have never lived it before; we will never live it again; it is the only day we have.
William Arthur Ward
I lived with my parents in Belarus, and I went to Russian kindergarten, which is where I learned Russian. Belarus had just become an independent country; there was no food in the supermarkets, so it looked very post-war, very Soviet.
Yung Lean
My father cared about the world he lived in, and so he admitted his confusion about his place in America because he didn’t want me to make the same mistake in my life.
Walter Mosley
I guess I kind of lived in a fairytale world… looking at everything through rose-colored glasses. I probably always will, to a certain extent.
Sharon Tate
I lived in a world where social arrangements were taken for granted and assumed to be timeless. A child’s obligation was to learn these usages, not to question them. The complexities of racial deportment were of a piece with learning manners and etiquette more generally.
Drew Gilpin Faust
Anyway, I lived on the streets and did pretty good until I got caught stealing, what was it? I kicked in a restaurant window, went in and took all the food that I wanted, and while coming out I was grabbed.
Gregory Corso
Once you’ve lived the inside-out world of espionage, you never shed it. It’s a mentality, a double standard of existence.
John le Carre
I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash.
Phil Robertson
Everything must come from the heart, must be lived.
Pina Bausch
I want to be the greatest actor that ever lived, frankly. I’d love that. But I don’t need to be. I just want to be here. That’s it.
Jim Carrey
Men do not understand books until they have a certain amount of life, or at any rate no man understands a deep book, until he has seen and lived at least part of its contents.
Ezra Pound
Each person’s life is lived as a series of conversations.
Deborah Tannen
I was born in Mullens, West Virginia, and lived in a community called Iroquois in Appalachia. We faced heavy pollution. Our water came from the Sweeney Watershed, which meant we essentially drank acid mine drainage.
Paula Jean Swearengin
Because if you lived, as I did, several years under Nazi totalitarianism, and then 20 years in communist totalitarianism, you would certainly realize how precious freedom is, and how easy it is to lose your freedom.
Milos Forman
I used to live next door to a farm, so every day for awhile, I used to walk over and fed the cows, when I was in school. This was weird because I lived in sort of a subdivision, but this one holdout in our neighborhood in Kansas still had a farm.
Paul Rudd
I was born in a very poor family. I used to sell tea in a railway coach as a child. My mother used to wash utensils and do lowly household work in the houses of others to earn a livelihood. I have seen poverty very closely. I have lived in poverty. As a child, my entire childhood was steeped in poverty.
Narendra Modi
I have lived a long life, and I am proud that I spend the whole of my life in the service of my people. I am only proud of this and nothing else. I shall continue to serve until my last breath, and when I die, I can say, that every drop of my blood will invigorate India and strengthen it.
Indira Gandhi
I’ve always done more than I ever thought I would. Becoming a professor – I never would have imagined that. Writing books – I never would have imagined that. Getting a Ph.D. – I’m not sure I would even have imagined that. I’ve lived my life a step at a time. Things sort of happened.
Drew Gilpin Faust
What’s the point? My face, shall we say, looks lived in.

Montesquieu
I didn’t really like my Sydney accent – nobody likes the sound of their own voice – and when I was a little younger tried to change my accent gradually. But I’ve only ever really lived in Sydney and Los Angeles, so I haven’t been influenced by the accents of some far-off land.
Callan McAuliffe
I think it was lucky that during most of the work on the Odyssey I lived on Homer’s sea in houses that were, in one case, shaken by the impact of the Mediterranean winter storms on the rocks below.
Robert Fitzgerald
We would like to live as we once lived, but history will not permit it.
John F. Kennedy
We have lived through the flood time of fascism and of the nazism which ran its meteoric course at a cost to mankind in suffering and waste beyond all computation.
Emily Greene Balch
Everybody has their own rules, and so do I. I have always lived on my own terms. As far as mistakes are concerned, I’ve made them and acknowledged them as mistakes, not regrets. I consider my life a success. There’s nothing that I would re-do. I’ve always done what I felt was right.
Kajol
Go beyond science, into the region of metaphysics. Real religion is beyond argument. It can only be lived both inwardly and outwardly.
Swami Sivananda
Who would want a face that hasn’t seen or lived properly, hasn’t got any wrinkles that come with age, experience and laughter? Not me, anyway.
Cate Blanchett
Life is an exciting business, and most exciting when it is lived for others.
Helen Keller
For four to six months at a time, I would barely eat. I lived on a diet of Melba toast, carrots, and black coffee.
Alanis Morissette
There the wild animals wandered and fed as though they were in a pasture that stretched much farther than a man could see, and there were no settlers. Only Indians lived there.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
While I was raised around churches and had gotten to know a few preachers fairly well, the thought never entered my head that I would one day stand and deliver. Not only was I not interested, I lived with a major struggle: I stuttered.
Charles R. Swindoll
If you’re here right now in your life, your journey continues and you’ve lived to tell the story.
Mary J. Blige
Some men are willing to die for their faith, but they are not willing to fully live for it. Christ both lived and died for us.
Ezra Taft Benson
