Life Goes On

Jaibala/ July 13, 2015/ Musings/ 12 comments

Robert Frost is among my favourite poets of the last century. His poems though written decades back, are so relevant even today. Today’s quote comes from him.

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”

Robert Frost

“Life goes on”, the ultimate reality we all have to deal with. Whatever, you have been through whatever your loss, life does not stop. Time and tide wait for none, right. Then why should life stop because you have. Nothing and no one is indispensible in the larger picture.

There are many times in life we face choices. Sometimes they are yes choices and sometimes the choices say no. And life does not stop whatever we choose. Time never stops.

So whenever faced with a loss, a setback or a failure learn, reflect and move forward. At the same time, whenever we are immensely happy, successful or get promoted, remember that things will change. Life won’t stop at the happy moments either, so we need to enjoy, reflect, learn and move on along with life.

  1. True, life goes on! Such a simple quote, but the essence of life really!

    1. It is life in three words, isn’t it? Thanks for reading Aditi 🙂

  2. As simple as that. So true, Jaibala. Actually sometimes I am grateful that life goes on. You know especially after someone is sick or has passed away, you wait for life to go on so that you can gain some of your sanity back, so that you can actually start living again.

    1. Yes I agree. It is always better for life to move on Rachna. If it does not there is no growth.

  3. That’s such a tough one to follow. It’s one thing to KNOW it and quite another to follow it. I could do with that reminder, thanks.

    1. It is very hard to follow. We always want to hold on to the past quite forgetting that nothing remains the same. Glad you liked it Tulika 🙂

  4. This quote used to be an old friend’s favourite. A simple sentence, with a lot of depth.

    1. The true meaning of the quote lies deep within the words.

  5. That’s one of my favourite quotes too – Life goes on. It sounds easy, but it’s difficult to do, but hey, we all love a challenge 🙂

    1. That is why we need someone to keep reminding us of this, because it isn’t easy. Also I agree a challenge when it comes to fo.

  6. Yes. This quote in turn reminds me of another of my favorite quotes, “Time and tide wait for no man.” 🙂

    Glad you took the challenge, Jb. Loved all three of your favorite quotes! :mrgreen:

    1. Well, I am glad too. 🙂
