Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Erik Pevernagie
“If the whole world is in a rush and people are out of step with themselves, they fail to catch that quirky aura and that special quality of life that feeds our soul-searching frame of mind and that builds a coveted haven, giving recognition and self-reliance. ("The unbearable heaviness of being”)”
Erik Pevernagie

Michael Moore
“It was the American middle class. No one's house cost more than two or three year's salary, and I doubt the spread in annual wages (except for the osteopath) exceeded more than five thousand dollars. And other than the doctor (who made house calls), the store managers, the minister, the salesman, and the banker, everyone belonged to a union. That meant they worked a forty-hour week, had the entire weekend off (plus two to four weeks' paid vacation in the summer), comprehensive medical benefits, and job security. In return for all that, the country became the most productive in the world and in our little neighborhood it meant your furnace was always working, your kids could be dropped off at the neighbors without notice, you could run next door anytime to borrow a half-dozen eggs, and the doors to all the homes were never locked -- because who would need to steal anything if they already had all that they needed?”
Michael Francis Moore, Here Comes Trouble

Ha-Joon Chang
“Above a certain level of income, the relative value of material consumption vis-a-vis leisure time is diminished, so earning a higher income at the cost of working longer hours may reduce the quality of your life. More importantly, the fact that the citizens of a country work longer than others in comparable countries does not necessarily mean that they like working longer hours. They may be compelled to work long hours, even if they actually want to take longer holidays.”
Ha-Joon Chang, 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
“It might be true that it is “quality time” that counts, but after a certain point quantity has a bearing on quality.”
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

“We have to examine the extent to which we export poverty to other societies. When we decide that we will import products from China that are produced by people earning less than a dollar an hour, and grant their country most-favored-nation status (political contributions notwithstanding), we are deciding to make American workers who must earn the minimum wage compete with them. I am not suggesting that we close the doors to China or to Mexico, but I am suggesting that we look very carefully at the web of international relationships that we are creating. At the very minimum, we should understand that we have two choices in our country: we can raise world living standards by exporting those standards, or we can lower living standards- not only the world’s but also our own- by deciding that it is acceptable for the products of exploited labor to enter this country.”
Julianne Malveaux

“Questions you ask indicates the curiosity you hold, reveals your thinking patterns, states the intensity of your longing to know, demonstrates your desire and involvement, determines the quality of life you live.”
Anand Patwa

Sanchita Pandey
“The conscious choices you make everyday lay the foundation for your mental and physical health and also determine the quality of life you lead.”
Sanchita Pandey

John Irving
“How I live matters more than what I do. I have ambitions for the quality of how I live. I have no ambition for making money ...and I'd have time to read enough to be a constant source of information, ideas and language.”
John Irving, The 158-Pound Marriage

Mehmet Murat ildan
“You cannot have a quality life without having the concept of quality of life!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

A.D. Aliwat
“When people speak of quality of life, when cities promote theirs, this is what they’re talking about, this is the quintessential image: people enjoying recreational activities on a sunny day near a body of water.”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

“Specifically, artists and the powerful have the ability to turn ordinary lives into dreams.”

“Quality of life is having the freedom to make choices that are not fear based. Whether it’s the ability to choose the kinds of projects I want to take on and can learn from, or the ability to take a month off to travel. Freedom to choose is the ultimate luxury.”
Danielle Colding

“An act that shall not be in my quality, shall not be in my character”
P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar

James A. Michener
“The quality of a good life depends in large measure on how a man reacts to his natural environment, and we cannot destroy one without diminishing the other.”

“The quality of a man is in his expectations”
Obimuyiwa Gabriel

Charles Bowden
“I always remind myself of all the things I should note if I am to be a good person, one sound and balanced. One night . . . I reminded myself that 22 species of flowers were blooming in my backyard. . . . that fact helped a great deal.”
Charles Bowden, Desierto: Memories of the Future

“Our success is determined by how many people we are able to help solve a problem, or helping others to improve the level and quality of something in their life.”

B.S. Murthy, Benign Flame: Saga of Love

Louis Yako
“[Long Life]
This famous writer has died at 92
And that legend journalist,
The darling of authorities and mainstream media,
Has died at 95.
This pious religious man
Has died at 96,
And that billionaire,
Known for his countless charities and charitable deeds
Has died at 96 also…
The veteran and shrewd politician,
The former president of that country,
Has died at 95 as well…
And the same questions that dawned on me
Ever since I understood the oppression & filthiness
Of what the elites, authorities, and those in power are capable of,
Begin ringing in my ears once again:
Can anyone aware of the ugliness of what is going on live a long life?
Is it a coincidence that most people, writers, and artists
Who enriched my awareness and world died prematurely
Or died, literally or metaphorically, by suicide, assassination, or in prison?
Can a shred of awareness fell upon us without defeating the body and the soul
Cell by cell and one organ after another causing a premature death?
I also wonder have the writers, journalists, religious men, and politicians
Who lived long lives enriched truth and justness,
Or have they gotten rich at the expense of the above
to live long lives up to 92, 93, 94, 95, & 96?
And by biggest questions of all:
Is there somewhere, in some world, in some place,
a dagger of awareness that stabs without the killing the stabbed prematurely?

[Original poem published in Arabic on December 31, 2022, at ahewar.org]”

Janice Fraser
“We no longer believe in work/life balance: It’s all just life. And we need to know it’s a life that we want to live, filled with security, confidence, love, and meaning. The idea that we turn “off” life when we turn “on” work is outmoded. What happens to us at work, the choices we make at work, how we lead at work—all of this impacts our macro and micro quality of life, and the nature of the world we live in.”
Janice Fraser, Farther, Faster, and Far Less Drama: How to Reduce Stress and Make Extraordinary Progress Wherever You Lead

“मनातल्या मनातल्या मनात........

मनातल्या मनातल्या मनात राहतो मी एक एकच्या अनेक विचारांच्या घरात,

जे करावे ते न करायला, जे न करावे ते करायला

का रे, असं जनु ढग नसताना होई

पवसाचा फवारा

किती तरी, होवुनी मनी दुःखी तरी, देवा...! दाखवतो मि हसीत खुशी.

हसीत खुशीत झाला

मनाचा त्याग..

का रे, असं वाटेत आलेल्या किती

तरी विचारांचा कुठे होई थांब.

थांब न मिळे कुठे ही जिथे

मन करे तिथे ही.

मनातल्या मनातल्या मनात.

दामोधर ल वंजारी
