my Anthology

Life isn't a science; we make it up as we go along

Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on. ~Robert Frost

Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth. ~Martin H. Fischer

What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. ~Crowfoot, 1890

"You can always die. It's living that takes real courage."

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

don't have morals, have ethics. That way you can screw people, you just can't screw them over.

life is too short to break all the rules. Might as well get a running start and shatter them all at the speed of sound.

don't get so caught up in the dazzle and sparkle of the circus that you forget that they are all just freaks in stupid hats.

before you criticize someone, walk a mile in thier shoes, because then you are a mile away and you have thier shoes.

you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but who wants to catch flies anyway?

Don’t worry about the future. Worrying is about as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum. The real problems in your life are going to be the ones that blindside you at 4 p.m. on some idle Tuesday

Save a soybean, Eat a vegan.

Never let them take you alive

Live fast, die faster

" Life is characterized by peaks and valleys, win and loses, victories and failures. You shouldn't let life's failures stop you from trying again.."

" An investment in life is an investment in change.. When you are changing all the time., you've got to continue to keep adjusting to change; which mens that you are going to be constantly facing new obstacles. That's the joy of living.."

Poems about Life

Life Poem
A True Story of A Real Man
© By Nichole L. Johnson

A man that made an impression on strangers and friends.
Quiet but firm and even more stern.
Strength and courage I have learned from you, but being without you is hard to do.
A man with pride in every step he made.
A man with vigor in every phrase.

The tears I've shed cannot surpass the smiles and the laughs we had with you.
To feel your pain I could not do, to feel your joy I cannot explain, but being without is hard to do.
A man with pride in every step he made.
A man with vigor in every phrase.

A man that defined the word grand as only a real man can.
To know you're in a better place soothes my pain.
Knowing you're watching over me makes me sane.
A man with pride in every step he made.
A man with vigor in every phrase.

A true story of a real man, who in the end held his family together as only a real man can.
My grandfather, a man with poise.
You were a husband, father, uncle, cousin, grandfather, friend, and the epitome of a real man.
