You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.
All that is not eternal is eternally out of date.
Life's pretty good, and why wouldn't it be? I'm a pirate, after all.
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Almost all our desires, when examined, contain something too shameful to reveal.
If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane.
Live simply so others may simply live.
A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason.

I'd trade all my tomorrows for a single yesterday.
