    Fill in the blank: Life is (or Life's) _____

    I read a quote from Jon Stewart given as part of a commencement address in which he said that life is an elective, not core curriculum - I like that.

    Edited to add the quote:

    It got me thinking about all the other phrases I've heard that begin with "Life is ..." or "Life's ..."

    So, essay question. Life is _________. Discuss!

    2 come to mind:

    Life is just a bowl of cherries.

    Life's a b*tch, and then you die.


    I think that took it from the far right to the far left.

    From a song that I completed this weekend:

    Life's an endless symphony that sings its song of ecstacy
    and everyday's a celebration of your life and all creation!!

    When you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect. Mark Twain

    Then, I think you need to spend more time deciding where you lie down.

    Life is what you make it.

    Life is too short- enjoy it while it's yours.

    You only live once but if you work it right once is enough.

    There is another take on it.
