Empire-haters will quickly point to the fact that the show features two parents (Cookie and Lucious) who have served time in prison in an attempt to argue that Empire does not offer any life lessons yet they are wrong.  It’s not how we make mistakes but how we correct them that defines us.

This list includes some Godly inspirational quotes along with quotes about life being short.  From Lucious Lyon to Cookie, the show’s talented cast provides some great advice that we must implement in our daily lives.
Some of the you only live once quotes included in this post remind us that we have to live every day like it’s our last! YOLO as Drake puts it.  We have to Live Love Life!
Godly inspirational quotes can certainly compliment Andre’s journey on the show while Cookie’s 17 years in prison enable us to appreciate the following you only live once quotes.  Cookie’s cousin Bunkie forces us to listen to all those wonderful quotes about life being short that our loved ones have shared with us for years.
