The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
Life would be tragic if it weren't funny.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those that got there first.

Old age is by nature rather talkative.
I desire to live in peace and to continue the life I have begun under the motto 'to live well you must live unseen'

Its not the men in your life that matters, its the life in your men.
We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.
I can choose either to be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It's all a question of how I view my life.
Be thankful that you have a life, and forsake your vain and presumptuous desire for a second one.
