    So, a couple years back someone at McDonald's gave me a painted rock that simply says "Live Well." I keep it on my computer desk. My theory is that a well lived life is a fully lived life, which would include obstacles and problems, not just blue skies and sunshine. What is your opinion of a well-lived life?

    One of my favorite exchanges between Muriel and Richard in "Take Me Along":
    Richard: "Life is to be lived Muriel".
    Muriel: "I don't see how I can help but do that Richard".

    Live Well

    ~ To be thankful; even through the toughest of times ~ Especially towards God. Love God, and Love Others. :p Really simple way to live well; in my opinion.

    There is a verse in the bible that has Paul (this man had been beaten to death, put in jail, made tents for a living, also before his conversion He was making life hell for everyone else around Him and Himself) talking about how he has learned the secret of living in every situation.

    (Philippians 4:11-13 - quite a philosophy yet dependent of Faith which includes of course Christ Jesus.) ~ Some may not believe an its okay.

    Take care and have a good day
    :p

    There’s a scene in the movie Papillon, which is set on a penal colony during France’s Imperial era. The character played by Steve McQueen dreams that he has to appear before a panel of judges, who accuse him of the one unforgivable crime; that of a wasted life.

    That’s always haunted me.

    Not sure what it means though really.

    It will (obviously) mean different things to different people.

    You are right Aupmanyav, do like what you said about truth.

    Living in truth, can be freeing. It seems to be so. A well lived life even possibly.

    I do not live well. But I am trying to live better.
