Famous quotes containing the words human and/or life:

    And then I know of no better way
    To close a road, abandon a farm,
    Reduce the births of the human race,
    And bring back nature in people’s place.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Had I but died an hour before this chance
    I had lived a blessed time; for from this instant
    There’s nothing serious in mortality.
    All is but toys. Renown and grace is dead;
    The wine of life is drawn, and the mere lees
    Is left this vault to brag of.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
