Here’s some advice. Stay alive.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

They could not truly look dead, because they did not ever look alive.

Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Letting it get to you. You know what that’s called? Being alive. Best thing there is. Being alive right now is all that counts.

Eleventh Doctor, Doctor Who

I’m happy to be alive, I’m happy to be who I am.

Michael Jackson

The truth is I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can’t have those things then I feel like a caged animal and I’d rather not be in a cage. I’d rather be dead. And it’s real simple. And I think it’s not that uncommon.

Angelina Jolie

I preferred my sister alive, rather than in small bloodless sections. Lovely, almost human of me. Now that was settled: What next?

Dexter Morgan, Darkly Dreaming Dexter

We are meant to be here. We step from one piece of holy ground to the next under stars that ask “Imagine, for one second, you could drop in on a past life. What would you like to find yourself doing there? What would charm you, make you proud?” Ask yourself that, and the question of what to do in this life becomes so simple its terrifying. Just to do that thing that would charm you, that would make you say, “Yes, its the real me”. Do that, and you’re alive.


Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he is dead.

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald
