Life is too short to spend your time worrying and stressing about things you cannot influence.
Life is to short not to enjoy it as much as possible.
Life is too short to argue.
Life is too short not to appreciate it wherever you find it.
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")
-- Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805)
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
-- Philip K Dick

OK, now let's look at four dimensions on the blackboard.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Life is too short for fashion.

Also pineapples, grapefruit, timer-recording on DVD players or anything else that requires more effort to get working than than they are worth, in pleasure, time or achievement.

Life isn't nearly short enough to keep me from eating grapefruit!

Oh, Daftbeaker, life is too short to NOT eat pineapple. One of the best things about visiting Hawaii was having fresh pineapple everyday. :D

Life is too short for fear, and it's too short for hesitation.

We have a new kitchen. Unfortunately, it was new in 1986.

Life is too short for waiting.
And, I certainly agree on the decaf.

Life is too short to not spend a day just sitting in the sun.

Also, estate agents, bank adverts and double glazing salesmen.
