Celebrate Life

celebrate life oprah quoteThe more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
Oprah Winfrey

Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving;
make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!
Amanda Bradley
(also attributed to Sydney Smith)

Life is a celebration of awakenings, of new beginnings,
and wonderful surprises that enlighten the soul.
Cielo

People of our time are losing the power of celebration. Instead of celebrating we seek to be amused or entertained. Celebration is an active state, an act of expressing reverence or appreciation. To be entertained is a passive state–it is to receive pleasure afforded by an amusing act or a spectacle. . . . Celebration is a confrontation, giving attention to the transcendent meaning of one’s actions.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
The Wisdom of Heschel

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
Dame Agatha Christie
