Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience.
Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.
The pleasure of the moment begins to wither almost as soon as it blossoms; our pleasures are soon swallowed up in time's relentless torrent.
Quick sensitivity is inseperable from a ready understanding.
All that is not eternal is eternally out of date.
Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.
You can have it all. Just not all at once.

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.

Where there is love there is life.
The difficulty we have in accepting responsibility for our behaviour lies in the desire to avoid the pain of the consequences of that behaviour
Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Time is the best killer.
One day, in retrospect, the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.
