“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist.” — Oscar Wilde
Most of us don’t live our lives to the fullest. We just wake up, eat, work and not even having fun. Just basically a daily routine.
It is sad to think that people nowadays only choose to exist. Living is something that they realize would be too late to do so at the end of their life’s journey.
To only exist is to live without knowing your mission or purpose in life. Thanks for sharing this quote.
I totally agree with this. I, myself, couldn’t tell if I’m already living my own life.
It is really hard to know your purpose in life. That’s why a lot of people just exist but still never had lived their life yet.
It is not really rare per say but to me it is SPECIAL. I always see it as our journey is our own greatest magic of all. To those out there value it because fact is some people are going through hell and will give anything just to get it. Do not waste the chance you have been given.
Indeed many people rarely live. Simply breathing doesn’t mean living!
A great quote by Oscar Wilde. He was such a wise man!
It’s best to live every moment and not simply exist. Wonderful quote indeed.
We only have one life. It’s best to live it to the best of our ability.
To live means to experience every aspect of life and enjoy it fully. Anything else is just existing.
Bold statement. I agree. The real risk takers are the ones that challenge themselves to constantly learn and try new experiences. To really take on life, you have to step above normality.
Very wise quote. Many people exist but very few actually live.
Nice quote, Tom. The posture of Oscar is just a funny pose.
Thought provoking quote . I wish we could life more worthwhile for everyone. Life is already unfair why make it more unfair to ourselves.
This is one of those quotes that one needs to read everyday. So very inspiring.
A simple but thought provoking quote. Just how I love them!!
I love every one of Oscar Wilde’s quotes. This is no exception!
This is very insightful. Quite an inspiring quote too.
Very well said. There’s a big difference between living and simply existing.
This is so true, most people are just existing. We strive in life to be at peace, to live, some people get it right while some don’t.
That’s true..a lot of people merely exist..they don’t use there potential.. They jus exist without leaving a footprint after they are gone
A good philosophy to live by. It makes you want to get the best out of your life everyday.
This quote is right, most of us just exist for our survival. Until we start living to make impact, we just as good as nothing
Very true. There is a big difference between living and existing, but most people don’t even realize it.
Wow, to live is to make a positive impact in the world. You are right, most people just exist
Quote supported by me. To live is the most rare thing in this world.
Yes, you are quite right, alot of people are just existing with no aims, objectives or purpose in life. I pray to become a better daily.
