Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.
When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way.

The absent are never without fault, nor the present without excuse.
We must live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.

There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.
A man is literally what he thinks.
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.
The cure for pain is in the pain.
Tis very certain the desire of life prolongs it.
Your inner world has its own taste, has its own fragrance, has its own light. And it is utterly silent.
Thoughts without content are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind.
If you would take, you must first give, this is the beginning of intelligence.
