I have no idea what's awaiting me, or what will happen when this all ends. For the moment I know this: there are sick people and they need curing.
In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?
Life is like music, it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule.
You can find the entire cosmos lurking in its least remarkable objects.
Im not in this world to live up to your expectations and youre not in this world to live up to mine.
The present is theirs; the future, for which I really worked, is mine.
The nicest thing for me is sleep, then at least I can dream.
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
The worldly comforts are not for me. I am like a traveller, who takes rest under a tree in the shade and then goes on his way.
If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane.
Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we're frantic, life will be frantic. If we're peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace.
Each person must live their life as a model for others.
There is also this benefit in brag: that the speaker is unconsciously expressing his own ideal. Humor him by all means, draw it all out, and hold him to it.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
A life not lived for others is not a life.
Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.
The joy in life is his who has the heart to demand it.
Life will not break your heart. It'll crush it.
For life in general, there is but one decree: youth is a blunder, manhood a struggle, old age a regret.
Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.
