Peace is always beautiful.
The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.
Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better.
To be honest, one must be inconsistent.
Peace is not something you wish for; it is something you make, something you are, something you do, and something you give away.
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.
A first rate soup is better than a second rate painting.
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth.
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
Sometimes the truth hurts. And sometimes it feels real good.
Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course is silly, the latter a mark of prudence.
Only enemies speak the truth; friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.
No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.
I do not want the peace which passeth understanding, I want the understanding which bringeth peace.
There is nothing true anywhere, The true is nowhere to be seen; If you say you see the true, This seeing is not the true one.
It isn't enough to talk about peace; one must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it; one must work at it.
