There have been many variations on this quote, but I believe they all stem from this original piece written by Mother Theresa around 1980 when she was in her seventies when she wrote her own resume of her philosophy of life:

Life is an opportunity, avail it.

Life is a beauty, admire it.

Life is bliss, taste it.

Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.

Life is a duty, complete it.

Life is a game, play it.

Life is costly, care for it.

Life is a wealth, keep it.

Life is love, enjoy it.

Love is a mystery, know it.

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it.

Life is a song, sing it.

Life is a struggle, accept it.

Life is a tragedy, brace it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.

Life is life, save it!

Life is luck, make it.

Life is too precious, do not destroy it.

Mother Theresa
