G is for Gandhi

This year, my theme is Quotes from A-Z.  Each day I will post a quote from a person whose name starts with each day's letter.  It will be short and sweet but hopefully it will bring a moment of inspiration, laughter, or meditation to your busy day.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the quotes in the comments or what other quote is your favorite by that day's person. On each Saturday, I will list all the quotes from the week and you can vote to tell me which was your favorite!

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

What have you learned this week?



  1. That's a brilliant quote.

    All I've learned this week is when I make plans, I get ill. Hoping for some more profound learning next week!

  2. I learned that there are some pretty cool ideas for how to tackle this A to Z Challenge. I love this approach. Can you imagine what today could be like if we heed Gandhi's advice?

  3. Personally, I think the learning part is more important!

  4. Annalisa- Oh I hope you feel better soon!

    Alex- :)

    Eli- Thanks! I know, he also said, "My life is My Message." and I think that is such a wonderful sentiment. If we could each live the life we believe in it would be a wonderful world.

    LD- He sure was.

    JE- I love learning!!

  5. That is a great quote because that's about how we should live. No one is guaranteed even our next breath. What have I learned this week? Its not fun to be on mandatory overtime during A/Z challenge; its cutting into my blogging time :)


  6. That really is a great quote... That was one smart cookie, that Mr. Ghandi.

    What have I learnt this week... all my "normal" writing goals are OUT the window as I struggle to keep up with posting and commenting :)

  7. What great advice. I love all his quotes.

  8. There is of course a consequence to living as if this is your last day. My father died when he was forty nine and being the kind of person I am got me to believing I would too. I lived the first forty nine years of my life at breakneck speed, AND THEN I TURNED FIFTY.
    It has been difficult to motivate myself since then, I've already done everything I wanted to do. What now? :)
    For my fiftieth birthday I jumped the highest bungee jump in the world 216 meters.
    Oh well, I suppose I'll just have to learn now, ha, ha, ha.
