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.
You never know when a moment and afew sincere words can have an impact on a life.
This thing of being a hero, about the main thing to it is to know when to die.
We all owe death a life.
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.
There's place and means for every man alive.
By putting forward the hands of the clock you shall not advance the hour.
For life in general, there is but one decree: youth is a blunder, manhood a struggle, old age a regret.
In order to seek truth, it is necessary once in the course of our life to doubt, as far as possible, of all things.
A hospital bed is a parked taxi with the meter running.
Hard work, disciplined habits, modesty in living, contentment and cheerfulness.
Each man should frame life so that at some future hour fact and his dreaming meet.
A mother takes twenty years to make a man of her boy, and another woman makes a fool of him in twenty minutes.
Old age is by nature rather talkative.
Shame is an ornament to the young; a disgrace to the old.
Its not the men in your life that matters, its the life in your men.
There's no advantage to hurrying through life.
Live your life and forget your age.
Life is more or less a lie, but then again, that's exactly the way we want it to be.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
