    • 1919, F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise[1]:

lifeward (not comparable)

  1. Which lead toward life.
    • 1904, Thomas Troward, The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science[2]:
      Therefore in every case the test is whether our particular intention is in this same lifeward direction: and if it is, then we may be absolutely certain that there is no intention on the part of the Universal Mind to thwart the intention of our own individual mind; we are dealing with a purely impersonal force, and it will no more oppose us by specific plans of its own than will steam or electricity.
