Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.
If I'm honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all.
The worldly comforts are not for me. I am like a traveller, who takes rest under a tree in the shade and then goes on his way.
Life is nothing but a competition to be the criminal rather than the victim.
The joy in life is his who has the heart to demand it.
A wise girl kisses but doesn't love, listens but doesn't believe, and leaves before she is left.
Life is the dancer and you are the dance.
I never think of the future - it comes soon enough.
The more you live in the present moment, the more the fear of death disappears.
If a man neglects education, he walks lame to the end of his life
All of us are products of our childhood.
Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must.

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye...until we meet again
Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.
Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.
Anyone who knows anything of history knows that great social changes are impossible without feminine upheaval. Social progress can be measured exactly by the social position of the fair sex, the ugly ones included
Live simply so others may simply live.
