Live the life you've dreamed.
Things do not change; we change.
The moment my legs begin to move, my thoughts begin to flow.
Time is like a handful of sand - the tighter you grasp it, the faster it runs through your fingers.
Morning is when I am awake and there is a dawn in me.
The only way to tell the truth is to speak with kindness. Only the words of a loving man can be heard.
Enthusiasm is a supernatural serenity.
The question is not what you look at - but how you look and whether you see.
Public opinion is a weak tyrant compared with our own private opinion. What a man thinks of himself, that is which determines, or rather indicates, his fate.
