It was the people that made the difference in your life, the people who lent a hand when one was needed, the people who were there when others weren't, the people that stood by you in the best of times and the worst, the people who you could laugh with, and the people you could cry with.

In the nice ones, a staff member cracks a joke, wags an affectionate finger, and takes your brownie stash away.

This is the consequence of a society that faces the final phase of the human life cycle by trying not to think about it. We end up with institutions that address any number of societal goals-from freeing up hospital beds to taking burdens off families' hands to coping with poverty among the elderly-but never the goal that matters to the people who reside in them: how to make life worth living when we're weak and frail and can't fend for ourselves anymore.

— Atul Gawande

Put down the pen someone else gave you. No one ever drafted a life worth living on borrowed ink. Get to San Francisco.

— Jack Kerouac

I can't say this too often - that a little humor can make life worth living. That has always been my credo. Somebody once asked me, 'What would you like your epitaph to be?' I've always said that I'd like it to be: He left people a little happier than they were when he came into the room.

— Bennett Cerf

When things get tough, there are two things that make life worth living: Mozart, and quantum mechanics
