Life is tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid.
I think the highest and lowest points are the important ones. Anything else is just...in between.
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
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.
Life always waits for some crisis to occur before revealing itself at its most brilliant.
The less you know, the more you believe.

You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.
I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid, and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had a chance to read a lot.
Life is a journey, not a destination.
Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.
Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason.
Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show.

The man who has no sense of history, is like a man who has no ears or eyes
Live to the point of tears.
Hard work, disciplined habits, modesty in living, contentment and cheerfulness.
This terrifying world is not devoid of charms, of the mornings that make waking up worthwhile.
The present is theirs; the future, for which I really worked, is mine.
