Transient Thursday - Spencer G.'s Look at Life Through Quotations

I love to read quotations from various sources. I've decided to take twenty quotations and put them together in this write-up. The main focus is life. Take the time to read each quote and enjoy them for yourself.

(1)What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. (2)A man should live if only to satisfy his curiosity. (3)What I look forward to is continued immaturity followed by death.

(4)Life does not consist mainly or even largely of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that is forever blowing through one's head. (5)Life is what happens while you are making other plans. (6)Live as you will have wished to have lived when you are dying.

(7)Know the right moment. (8)As you journey through life take a minute every now and then to give a thought for the other fellow. He could be plotting something. (9)It takes two to make an accident.

(10)When a thing has been said and well, have no scruple. Take it and copy it. (11)Go ahead, make my day. (12)My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.

(13)Most people would like to be delivered from temptation but would like it to keep in touch. (14)Sometimes being pushed to the wall gives you the momentum necessary to get over it! (15)Get up, stand up. Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up. Never give up the fight. (16)I won't back down. (17)Love is all you need.

(18)Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many. (19)And in the end it is not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.

(20)Finally, in conclusion, let me say just this.

1-King Solomon, 2-Yiddish Proverb, 3-Dave Barry, 
4-Mark Twain, 5-John Lennon, 6-Christian Furchtegott Gellert,
7-Pittacus, 8-Hagar the Horrible, 9-The Great Gatsby,
