Celebration of Life Day is commemorated every year on Jan. 22 to acknowledge life in the entirety of its wonders.

Initially established by former U.S. President Ronald Regan to send an anti-abortion message to society, the day, which was previously called National Sanctity of Human Life Day, has now come to be a day to celebrate and appreciate the lives of kids and adults.

On this occasion, here are a few inspiring life celebration quotes. (Courtesy: Kidadl

  • "Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • "Happiness requires that we celebrate the positive sides of life. Peace requires that we accept both the positive and the negative outcomes of life and move on." - Terry Mark
  • "Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another." - Ernest Hemingway
  • "They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. Death cannot kill what never dies." - William Penn
  • "No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it, and that is how it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It’s life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new." -  Steve Jobs
  • "Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It’s what the sunflowers do." -  Helen Keller
  • "Life is meant to be a celebration! It shouldn't be necessary to set aside special times to remind us of this fact. Wise is the person who finds a reason to make every day a special one." - Leo F. Buscaglia
