Life
Life is a characteristic that distinguishes physical entities that do have biological processes, such as signaling and self-sustaining processes, from those that do not, either because such functions have ceased, or because they never had such functions and are classified as inanimate. Various forms of life exist, such as plants, animals, fungi, protists, archaea, and bacteria. The criteria can at times be ambiguous and may or may not define viruses, viroids, or potential synthetic life as "living". Biology is the science concerned with the study of life.
Science
Science (from Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.
Life
Rather than accept the fantastically small probability of life having arisen through the blind forces of nature, it seemed better to suppose that the origin of life was a deliberate intellectual act.
Fred Hoyle, cited in The Watchtower magazine, 1999, 6/15, article: The Creator Can Add Meaning to Your Life.
Life
Jeder Mensch hat eine Regen-Ecke seines Lebens aus der ihm das schlimme Wetter nachzieht.
Every man has a rainy corner of his life out of which foul weather proceeds and follows after him.
Jean Paul Richter, Titan, Zykel 123.
Life
Ampliat ætatis spatium sibi vir bonus: hoc est vivere bis, vita posse priore frui.
A good man doubles the length of his existence; to have lived so as to look back with pleasure on our past existence is to live twice.
Martial, Epigrams (c. 80-104 AD), X. 23. 7.
