Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!
Anything I've done up till 27 May 1999 was kind of an illusion, existing without living. My daughter, the birth of my daughter, gave me life.
Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.
I have learned to seek my happiness by limiting my desires, rather than in attempting to satisfy them.
Hard work, disciplined habits, modesty in living, contentment and cheerfulness.
Life did not intend to make us perfect. Whoever is perfect belongs in a museum.
Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them
Life is an ongoing process of choosing between safety (out of fear and need for defense) and risk (for the sake of progress and growth). Make the growth choice a dozen times a day.
Life is like a library owned by the author. In it are a few books which he wrote himself, but most of them were written for him.
Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.
Close by the Rights of Man, at the least set beside them, are the Rights of the Spirit.
Within the child lies the fate of the future.
You never know what life is like, until you have lived it.
Noble life demands a noble architecture for noble uses of noble men. Lack of culture means what it has always meant: ignoble civilization and therefore imminent downfall.
Be thankful that you have a life, and forsake your vain and presumptuous desire for a second one.
People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are not always pleasant.
Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.
Until you value yourself, you won't value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.
Sow a thought and you get an act; Sow an act and you get a habit; Sow a habit and you get a character; Sow a character and you get a destiny.
It would please me best if, at the last, a marble stone shall record that this Queen having lived such and such a time, lived and died a virgin.
I'm never going to be disabled. I'm sick of being so healthy.
