When Life Sucks

Our extended family has had a series of life sucks kind of events this year of 2018, spanning from the minor to the major and things in between.  It led me to look at some Life Sucks quotes:

“You fall out of your mother’s womb, you crawl across open country under fire, and drop into your grave.” – Quentin Crisp

“Life is like an onion; you peel off layer after layer and then you find there is nothing in it.” – James Gibbons Huneker

“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.” – Gabriel Garcia Marquez

“Life may have no meaning. Or even worse, it may have a meaning of which I disapprove.” – Ashleigh Brilliant

“Life is amazing. Even when it sucks, it is amazing, and we should be grateful for every moment.” – Hal Elrod

“Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.” – Calvin

“Sometimes life just sucks, and all we can do is go to our happy place where we plot our revenge.” – Antsy McClain

“Not everything happens for a reason. Sometimes life just sucks.” – Alexa Chung

“Sometimes life gives us lessons sent in ridiculous packaging.” – Dar Williams

“The world is a grindstone and life is your nose.” – Fred Allen

“Death is life’s way of telling you you’re fired.” – Unknown

“Yeah, sometimes life really sucks,” she says. “But you know what I’m holding on for?” I raise my eyebrows. She raises hers, too, mimicking me. “The moments that don’t suck,” she says. “The trick is to notice them when they come around.” – Veronica Roth

  1. lol sad but true, you gave me a hearty laugh yet you covered some very heavy stuff .. well written! May your families sucky stuff smooth out swiftly 🙂

  2. I like “Nothing in life is lasting” which comforts you when you are down, but sobers you up when you get too giddy with happiness!

    I don’t feel life is meaningless. It’s school – we learn from everything – it’s consciousness evolving through our experiences.

    I used to wonder about suffering until I went to a funeral of a young wife who had shockingly died of a quick brain cancer. Her husband stood up and said “I want to thank Jane for her suffering. It made my love flow, and it made the love of all who knew her flow. Jane’s illness produced love. Suffering makes Love.”

    We all strive to avoid suffering, but during it, we remember happiness was our goal. Happiness is when our love is flowing the smoothest. Yet we are often unaware and not grateful for our own joy. Well, anyway, that is my train of thought currently.

    I enjoyed your post. It made me remember Jane.

  3. Yep, funny and all too true. I couldn’t help thinking of Monty Pythons Always look on the Bright side of life. 😏 Hope things are now on the up.
