Life Quotes

These are some life quotes that will help you in navigating the journey called life. These are some words that will inspire you, motivate you and remind you that you must go on however low you feel at any part of your life, because life is about ups and downs. And as we navigate the Journey of life, we make various stops, just like that ad you see for Samsung TV.

Life is like a journey on a Train.
With two fellow passengers, At each window pane
I may sit beside you, All the journey through
Or I may sit elsewhere, Never knowing you
But should fate mark me, To sit by your side
Let’s be pleasant travelers.. Its so short a ride.

Our famous life quotes will reflect several phases of this journey, and we have related quotes on Love, friendships, relationships, family, feeling, celebrations and all those small things that makes up life. This is an ever increasing page and we have taken great pains at compiling these.
