I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.
If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.
Think no vice so small that you may commit it, and no virtue so small that you may over look it.
Courage, above all things, is the first quality of a warrior.
Wisdom begins at the end.
Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.
A friend to all is a friend to none
Fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind.
It has seemed to be more necessary to have regard to the weight of words rather than to their number.
Anywhere you go in the world is what you make of it, not what you read in books.
And this sensitivity will create new friendships for you - friendships with trees, with birds, with animals, with mountains, with rivers, with oceans, with stars. Life becomes richer as love grows.
Medicine heals diseases of the body, wisdom frees the soul from passions.
Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong.
Happiness is not an ideal of reason, but of imagination.
Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it.
There is an art, or rather a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
It is tact that is golden, not silence.
What can't be cured must be endured.
The cure for pain is in the pain.
Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed.
Do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in few!
