“Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.” – Helen Keller

Life is a constant stream of new lessons to be learned. These lessons can only be lived through to understand and learn. One cannot learn from a second hand source about some factors of life. We must learn through our own experience.

“You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.” – Winston Churchill

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.The money that we earn and the things that we buy make us our living. What we give to others and use to better the world give us a life. A living is something we do to create the life that we want. Neither would be completely available without the other.
