Life is rather like a tin of sardines - we're all of us looking for the key. 

Alan Bennett 

Some of us think we’ve found the key. We roll back the lid of the sardine tin of life. They reveal the sardines, the riches of life, therein, and they get them out, and they enjoy them.  We do have to appreciate what we have each day.   But, you know, there’s always a little bit in the corner of the tin that you can’t get out. Just like there is always a little corner in our minds wondering if life doesn’t have more to offer.

Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.

Mahatma Gandhi

They say that faith is the key to life…I know it plays the biggest part in my life and what it’s all about.  When you have a reason and a purpose, life does become more meaningful.

Never put the keys to your happiness in someone else’s hands.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had a key that would unlock a door to reveal what we should or shouldn’t do with our lives.  We all have the keys right in our own hands, but it’s up to us to choose which one to use.  I found so many quotes about keys that it was hard for me to pick and choose just the right one for this post.  Maybe you’ll find one that meant for you. 

Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.

W. Clement Stone

The key that unlocks energy is Desire. It's also the key to a long and interesting life. If we expect to create any drive, any real force within ourselves, we have to get excited. 

Earl Nightingale

No one can drive us crazy unless we give them the keys. 

Doug Horton

High expectations are the key to everything.

Sam Walton

Besides pride, loyalty, discipline, heart, and mind, confidence is the key to all the locks.

Joe Paterno

Great quotes to live by.


This made me smile. Love sardines and the quote. Also the one about nobody can drive you crazy unless you give them the keys. So true.

I liked all the quotes on keys, Ma, and I took think it would be wonderful if we had a key that revealed what we should or shouldn't do with our lives. I guess the key for that is prayer and learning to listen to God :)

You are right - I sure do look for the key or answer to some of the questions of life - and each time - I get the answer to just forge on!
