I mistrust the judgement of every man in a case in which his own wishes are concerned.
To live is not merely to breathe; it is to act; it is to make use of our organs, senses, faculties - of all those parts of ourselves which give us the feeling of existence
Yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream.
Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
If you're happy, don't worry you'll get over it.
What can't be cured must be endured.
No man has any natural authority over his fellow men.
Whatever it is you're seeking won't come in the form you're expecting.
Promises are like crying babies in a theater, they should be carried out at once.
Those who can not change their minds can not change anything.
Judge not unless you judge yourself.
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.
Men become wise just as they become rich, more by what they save than by what they receive.
And this sensitivity will create new friendships for you - friendships with trees, with birds, with animals, with mountains, with rivers, with oceans, with stars. Life becomes richer as love grows.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.
It is easy to be brave at a safe distance.
You want a love which is born out of meditation, not born out of the mind.
It is a wise man that does know the contented man is never poor, whilst the discontented man is never rich.
Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.
