„If we live a life full of regret, full of things we haven't done, if we've lived an unfulfilled life, when death comes along, it's a lot worse. I think it's true for all of us.“

„Let us learn from the lips of death the lessons of life. Let us live truly while we live, live for what is true and good and lasting.“

—  Felix Adler German American professor of political and social ethics, rationalist, and lecturer 1851 - 1933

Founding Address (1876), Life and Destiny (1913)
Kontext: Let us learn from the lips of death the lessons of life. Let us live truly while we live, live for what is true and good and lasting. And let the memory of our dead help us to do this. For they are not wholly separated from us, if we remain loyal to them. In spirit they are with us. And we may think of them as silent, invisible, but real presences in our households.

„I think living well is the key: trying not to build up regrets for the things we didn't do in our lives; to try to live a regret-free life in which we feel satisfied in what we're doing; and to try to be kind to ourselves and not disappointed in ourselves.“

—  Irvin D. Yalom American psychotherapist and writer 1931

„It is not the things we do in life that we regret on our death bed. It is the things we do not.“

—  Randy Pausch American professor of computer science, human-computer interaction and design 1960 - 2008

CMU Graduation speech (2008)
Kontext: It is not the things we do in life that we regret on our death bed. It is the things we do not. I assure you I've done a lot of really stupid things, and none of them bother me. All the mistakes, and all the dopey things, and all the times I was embarrassed — they don't matter. What matters is that I can kind of look back and say: Pretty much any time I got chance to do something cool I tried to grab for it — and that's where my solace comes from.

„The life of a nation is the fullness of the measure of its will to live.“

—  Franklin D. Roosevelt 32nd President of the United States 1882 - 1945

1940s, Third Inaugural Address (1941)
Kontext: Lives of nations are determined not by the count of years, but by the lifetime of the human spirit. The life of a man is three-score years and ten: a little more, a little less. The life of a nation is the fullness of the measure of its will to live.
