So often inspiring quotes come in multiple feelings, like a quote for life, love and friends. These inspirational quotes on life, plus the beauty of love and friendship, keep us on track about what's real and what's inportant.

These multi-subject quotes are pretty good reflections of our real emotions. How often is there a "pure" anything—a pure thought of life or love or friends, for instance. All these impressions and feelings get mushed together.

And that's really nice.

So in our search for a quote on life, love and friends, we find many images, many thoughts. First, let's look at some quotes that include all three: life, love and friends. One of the best known is probably from the remarkable movie "A Beautiful Mind":

Friends are in integral part of your life, but every friend you have must live life at their own pace.  

I am personally very fond of this one from the lyrical poet Anais Nin:

Throw your dreams into space and like a kite you do not know what it will bring back: a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.

I think it was Ann Landers who said that "Love is not divided, it is multiplied," so I liked this life quote too:

May your life be like arithmetic—joys added, sorrow subtracted, friends multiplied, love undivided.

I was surprised to find this quote from Angelina Jolie:

Love one person, take care of them until you die. You know, raise kids. Have a good life. Be a good friend.

Many of us know, too, the charming story of "Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White.  The whole tale is a quote for life, love and friends:

You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.

Quotes on love and life are more common, such as this one from the philosopher Kahlil Gibran:

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.

... and from Gandhi

Where there is love there is life.

This Chinese proverb captures the duality of life very nicely:

When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.

As for inspirational quotes on life, love and laughter, this is probably the best known:

He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much.
Bessie Stanley

As so many of our poets and philosophers entreat us, let's pick a quote for life, love and friends that springs us into action to seize the day: 

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.
Benjamin Franklin

I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. 
Mark Twain

Carpe Diem! Rejoice while you are alive; 
enjoy the day; live life to the fullest; 
make the most of what you have.
 It is later than you think.  
Horace, Latin Poet

May you live all the days of your life.
Jonathan Swift  

Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.
Mahatma Gandhi

So here's to finding your perfect our quote for life, love and friends—may all three overflow for you every day.

Tanda sent in nearly every quote on life, love and friends, and asked me to find a "joyful" picture to go with them. I didn't have far to look. This painting by the renowned artist Gregory Hawthorne is the first painting I ever bought. The joyful colors brighten my life every day. I discovered the painting at the spring art fair in Beverly Hills, California.
