Differences are not intended to separate, to alienate. We are different precisely in order to realize our need of one another.
In life, you need either inspiration or desperation.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
Give yourself something to work toward - constantly.
Character isn't something you were born with and can't change, like your fingerprints. It's something you weren't born with and must take responsibility for forming.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.
It's always too early to quit.
If you think in terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant trees; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people.
Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water.
I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be.
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.
They alone live, who live for others.
Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it.
Don't find fault, find a remedy; anybody can complain
Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were, but without it we go nowhere.
A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.
We need never be ashamed of our tears.
