Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strength.
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.
He had the look of one who had drunk the cup of life and found a dead beetle at the bottom.
The image is one thing and the human being is another...It's very hard to live up to an image, put it that way.
The gentleman understands rightousness, the petty man understands interest.
Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!
Begin to see yourself as a soul with a body rather than a body with a soul.
A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.
To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival.
Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.
Anybody can dig a hole and plant a tree. But make sure it survives. You have to nurture it, you have to water it, you have to keep at it until it becomes rooted so it can take care or itself. There are so many enemies of trees.
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.
Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we're frantic, life will be frantic. If we're peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace.
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.
Life is the dancer and you are the dance.
Don't let making a living prevent you from making a life.
Do not wait for the last judgment. It comes every day.
Boys will be boys. And even that wouldn't matter if only we could prevent girls from being girls.
You never know what life is like, until you have lived it.
