We know what you were thinking, that this would be just another one of those boring long pages where people go on and on about how great this site is. We thought that was just a tad too predictable. Here’s to the Good Life!


"Every risk is worth taking as long as it's for a good cause, and contributes to a good life." - Richard Branson

Not life, but good life, is to be chiefly valued.

“There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.”
Diana Vreeland

The good life, as I conceive it, is a happy life. I do not mean that if you are good you will be happy – I mean that if you are happy you will be good.
Bertrand Russell

There are three ingredients to the good life; learning, earning, and yearning.
Christopher Morley

“An entirely new system of thought is needed, a system based on attention to people, and not primarily attention to goods…”
E.F. Schumacher

“There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.”
Johnny Depp

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
Bertrand Russell

“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”
Guatama Buddha

“Be persistent in good actions.”
Prophet Muhammad

“It is the spectator, and not life, that art really mirrors.”
Oscar Wilde

“Bonum vinum laetificat cor hominis — Good wine gladdens a person’s heart”

The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.”
Guatama Buddha

“A diamond is a chunk of coal that made good under pressure.”

We cannot control the evil tongues of others; but a good life enables us to disregard them
Cato the Elder

The secret of a good life is to have the right loyalties and hold them in the right scale of values.
Norman Thomas

I lived what most people call the good life. I was happy, but deep inside I always felt that, with the short amount of time we are given to live and love in this world, we spend too much time loving things instead of people.
Antonia Brenner

We know too much and feel too little. At least, we feel too little of those creative emotions from which a good life springs.
Bertrand Russell

The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.
Carl Rogers

The good life is one that’s artistically made.
William Shatner

Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life so. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.
Henry David Thoreau

My dream is to live a good life and be loving, be close to God and be a good human being and bring peace to people.
Ziggy Marley

Life comes from physical survival; but the good life comes from what we care about.
Rollo May

We have a good life when we manage to live with both satisfied and unsatisfied needs, when we are not obsessed by what is beyond our reach.”
Kjell Magne Bondevik

Do every act of your life as if it were your last.
Marcus Aurelius

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
Mark Twain

Seek not good from without: seek it within yourselves, or you will never find it.
Bertha von Suttner

Good writing excites me, and makes life worth living.
Harold Pinter

If we want to know what happiness is we must seek it, not as if it were a part of gold at the end of the rainbow, but among human beings who are living richly and fully the good life. If you observe a really happy man you will find him building a boat, writing a symphony, educating his son, growing double Dahlias in his garden. He will not be searching for happiness as if it were a collar gold button that has rolled under the cupboard in his bed room. He will have become aware that he is happy in the course of living 24 crowded hours of the day. If you live only for yourself you are always an immediate danger of being bored to death with the repetition of your own views and interests. No one has learned the meaning of living until he has surrendered his ego to the service of his fellowmen. If your ambition has the momentum of an express train at full speed, if you can no longer stop your mad rush for glory, power, or intellectual supremacy, try to divert your energies into socially useful channels before it is too late. For those who seek the larger happiness and greater effectiveness open to human beings there can be but one philosophy of life, a philosophy of constructive altruism. The truly happy man is always a fighting optimist. Optimism includes not only altruism but also social responsibility, social courage and objectivity. The good life demands a working philosophy as an orientating map of conduct. This is the golden way of life. This is the satisfying life. This is the way to be happy though human.
W. Beran Wolfe

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
