I want to feel my life while I'm in it.
I am an American; free born and free bred, where I acknowledge no man as my superior, except for his own worth, or as my inferior, except for his own demerit.
Every person who ever thought he had a right to assert, and went boldly and asserted it, himself, or jointly with others that shared his convictions, was a direct actionist.
All that happens means something; nothing you do is ever insignificant.
It would please me best if, at the last, a marble stone shall record that this Queen having lived such and such a time, lived and died a virgin.
All that is not eternal is eternally out of date.
Shame is an ornament to the young; a disgrace to the old.
During your life, never stop dreaming. No one can take away your dreams
Everything passes. Nobody gets anything for keeps. And that's how we've got to live.
The love of life is necessary to the vigorous prosecution of any undertaking.
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.
My life didn't please me, so I created my life.
We write to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect.
The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained to liberation from the self.
Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason.
I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday.
No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.
One doesn't recognize the really important moments in one's life until it's too late.
We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.
Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must.
The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye...until we meet again
