The way to know life is to love many things.
I have learned to seek my happiness by limiting my desires, rather than in attempting to satisfy them.
Live your life as an Exclamation rather than an Explanation
Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.

Being a hero is about the shortest-lived profession on earth.
What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the words I have read in my life.
Imagination and fiction make up more than three quarters of our real life.
Let silence take you to the core of life.
I can't wait to figure out what is wrong with me, so I can say this is the way that I used to be.
Freedom would be not to choose between black and white but to abjure such prescribed choices.

If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane.
Old age is by nature rather talkative.
Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.
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 highest manifestation of strength is to keep ourselves calm and on our own feet.
Any place I hang my head is home.
