Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
I am not young enough to know everything.
Life has a certain flavour for those who have fought and risked all that the sheltered and protected can never experience.
If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.
Sometimes - history needs a push.
Let silence take you to the core of life.
Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, and I'm going to be happy in it.
I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.
If you've been playing poker for half an hour and you still don't know who the patsy is, you're the patsy.
The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye...until we meet again
By putting forward the hands of the clock you shall not advance the hour.

Each man should frame life so that at some future hour fact and his dreaming meet.
Is it not enough that 'things are cruel and blind'? Must we also be cruel and blind?
Short as life is, we make it still shorter by the careless waste of time.
I can't help thinking that there are only one or two ways of being brought into this world, but there are so many fucked-up ways of leaving it.
If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.
