„Life is inconvenient. Life is lumpy.“

—  Robert Fulghum, Context: One of life's best coping mechanisms is to know the difference between an inconvenience and a problem. If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you've got a problem. Everything else is an inconvenience. Life is inconvenient. Life is lumpy. A lump in the oatmeal, a lump in the throat and a lump in the breast are not the same kind of lump. One needs to learn the difference. Uh-Oh: Some Observations from Both Sides of the Refrigerator Door (2001), p. 146

„I have read that the secret of gallantry is to accept the pleasures of life leisurely, and its inconveniences with a shrug“

—  James Branch Cabell American author 1879 - 1958
Context: I have read that the secret of gallantry is to accept the pleasures of life leisurely, and its inconveniences with a shrug; as well as that, among other requisites, the gallant person will always consider the world with a smile of toleration, and his own doings with a smile of honest amusement, and Heaven with a smile which is not distrustful — being thoroughly persuaded that God is kindlier than the genteel would regard as rational. As quoted in in Contemporary American Novelists, 1900-1920 (1922) by Carl Clinton Van Doren

„Life — life — let there be life!“

—  William Ernest Henley English poet, critic and editor 1849 - 1903
Poems (1898), Rhymes And Rhythms, Context: Life — life — let there be life! Better a thousand times the roaring hours When wave and wind, Like the Arch-Murderer in flight From the Avenger at his heel, Storm through the desolate fastnesses And wild waste places of the world! XVI
