The meaning of life is that it is to be lived, and it is not to be traded and conceptualized and squeezed into a patter of systems.
If my life is going to mean anything, I have to live it myself.
We're lost, but we're making good time
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
We are citizens of the world. The tragedy of our times is that we do not know this.
You can wish for things in the future to be different, but in this moment you have to accept things as they are.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Courage is the thing. All goes if courage goes.
If you don't know, the thing to do is not to get scared, but to learn.
We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
I would prefer even to fail with honor than win by cheating.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
We need never be ashamed of our tears.
The present is theirs; the future, for which I really worked, is mine.
The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
You see things; you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why not?
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
I believe that if you show people the problems and you show them the solutions they will be moved to act.
If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.
