life quotes

Life Quotes: From downfalls to immeasurable heights; from the countryside to the skyline of a metropolis; from chaos to peace and from head to heart; life is a rollercoaster full of twists and turns. Life is the greatest gift of all. One should cherish it as long as one has it. All the human-made prospects of righteousness, be it success, wealth or love are a step to complete life. Life is meant to be lived to its absolute limits because everyone has got only one chance at it. But in a rushed world like today’s, It can take a toll on you to even do daily activities. It’s easy for anyone to feel exhausted and demotivated even after listening to some Life quotes by an actor in a movie or so. It takes just a scold from your boss or parents or a disagreement with your partner to ruin your day, or worst even your week.
