All my life I have tried to pluck a thistle and plant a flower wherever the flower would grow in thought and mind.
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.
Just as modern motorways have no room for ox-carts or wandering pedestrians, so modern society has little place for lives and ways that are too eccentric.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
Doing nothing is happiness for children and misery for old men.
We all owe death a life.
Life has got to be lived-that's all that there is to it.
Life has a certain flavour for those who have fought and risked all that the sheltered and protected can never experience.
Life will not break your heart. It'll crush it.
The 'good old times'-all times, when old, are good.
If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience.
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.
Our life always expresses the result of our dominant thoughts.
To forget is the secret of eternal youth. One grows old only through memory. There's much too little forgetting.
There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart's desire. The other is to gain it.
A tragedy means always a man's struggle with that which is stronger than man.
Time is the best killer.
The body is meant to be seen, not all covered up.
I'm not sure I'm adult yet.
I can't wait to figure out what is wrong with me, so I can say this is the way that I used to be.
In every tragedy, an element of comedy is preserved. Comedy is just tragedy reversed.
