Toasts to Life

To life-a fatal, hereditary disease

Life consists not in holding good cards, but in playing those you hold well

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

Let us wipe out the past, trust in the future, and rejoice in the glorious Now.

"Life is a jest, and all things show it
­I thought so once, but now I know it." -John Gay

Every day should be passed as though it were our last

Let us eat and drink; for tomorrow we shall die. –Isaiah

Here's to love, life, and liberty: Love pure, Life long, Liberty boundless

To life. The first half is ruined by our parents and the second half by our children

Toasts to a Long Life

May the Lord love us but not call us too soon

May you enter heaven late

Long life to you and may you die in your bed.

May you live to be a hundred-and decide the rest for yourself

May you die in bed at age ninety-five shot by the jealous husband of a teenage wife

Till a hundred and twenty
