The greatest sweetener of human life is Friendship. To raise this to the highest pitch of enjoyment, is a secret which but few discover.

Friendship improves happiness, and abates misery, by doubling our joys, and dividing our grief.
One friend in a lifetime is much, two are many, three are hardly possible. Friendship needs a certain parallelism of life, a community of thought, a rivalry of aim.
I was the kid next door's imaginary friend.
Hopes are but the dreams of those that wake.
Honest men are the soft easy cushions on which knaves repose and fatten.
The mind is no match with the heart in persuasion; constitutionality is no match with compassion.
In its function, the power to punish is not essentially different from that of curing or educating.
The fire which enlightens is the same fire which consumes.
What is passion? It is surely the becoming of a person. Are we not, for most of our lives, marking time? Most of our being is at rest, unlived. In passion, the body and the spirit seek expression outside of self. Passion is all that is other from self. Sex is only interesting when it releases passion. The more extreme and the more expressed that passion is, the more unbearable does life seem without it. It reminds us that if passion dies or is denied, we are partly dead and that soon, come what may, we will be wholly so.
False friends are worse than bitter enemies.
Everything you want in life has a price connected to it. There's a price to pay if you want to make things better, a price to pay just for leaving things as they are, a price for everything.
It is the nature of the strong heart, that like the palm tree it strives ever upwards when it is most burdened.
Debate is masculine, conversation is feminine.
Always give your best. Never get discouraged. Never be petty. Always remember: others may hate you. Those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself. . . .Only if you have been in the deepest valley can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.
If we would build on a sure foundation in friendship, we must love friends for their sake rather than for our own.
Know how sublime a thing it is to suffer and be strong.
Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-break on.
If I have seen further... it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.
And Wisdom be the Daughter of Experience
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
Nothing can be loved or hated unless it is first known.
Time stays long enough for those who use it.
The function of muscle is to pull and not to push, except in the case of the genitals and the tongue.
Is it to be thought unreasonable that the people, in atonement for wrongs of a century, demand the vengeance of a single day?
On wrongs swift vengeance waits.
Delay in vengeance delivers a heavier blow.
I have offended God and mankind because my work didn't reach the quality it should have.
Just as iron rusts from disuse, even so does inaction spoil the intellect.
Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.
Before the first before and after the last after, there is night waiting.
Going to the opera, like getting drunk, is a sin that carries its own punishment with it.
Hard pounding, gentlemen: but we shall see who can pound the longest.
The sweetest joy, the wildest woe is love.
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
Vengeance taken will often tear the heart and torment the conscience.
One must not attempt to justify them, but rather to sense their nature simply and clearly.
The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.
Accept everything about yourself -- I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end -- no apologies, no regrets.
Nothing is a greater impediment to being on good terms with others than being ill at ease with yourself.
If a person lacks self-acceptance, he can't live with himself; if he lacks self-criticism, others can't live with him.
If I spit, they will take my spit and frame it as great art.
Life is a question asked by God about the way he exists.
O, let me not be mad, not mad, sweet heaven! Keep me in temper. I would not be mad.
In a great romance, each person plays a part the other really likes.
Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.
Wicked men obey from fear; good men, from love.
The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.
What I needed most was to love and to be loved, eager to be caught. Happily I wrapped those painful bonds around me; and sure enough, I would be lashed with the red-hot pokers or jealousy, by suspicions and fear, by burst of anger and quarrels.
As people are walking all the time, in the same spot, a path appears.
Sex alleviates tension. Love causes it.
Alcohol is like love. The first kiss is magic, the second is intimate, the third is routine. After that you take the girl's clothes off.
Man, being reasonable, must get drunk; the best of life is but intoxication.
Alcohol is necessary for a man so that he can have a good opinion of himself, undisturbed be the facts.
Alcohol is barren. The words a man speaks in the night of drunkenness fade like the darkness itself at the coming of day.
It was a woman who drove me to drink, and I never had the courtesy to thank her for it.
I never drink water. I'm afraid it will become habit-forming.
I never drink water; that is the stuff that rusts pipes.
No other human being, no woman, no poem or music, book or painting can replace alcohol in its power to give man the illusion of real creation.
Somebody left the cork out of my lunch.
A drinker has a hole under his nose that all his money runs into.
Wine hath drowned more men than the sea.
There are minds so impatient of inferiority that their gratitude is a species of revenge, and they return benefits, not because recompense is a pleasure, but because obligation is a pain.
The superiority of some men is merely local. They are great because their associates are little.
Great men are true men, the men in whom nature has succeeded. They are not extraordinary -- they are in the true order. It is the other species of men who are not what they ought to be.
The first element of greatness is fundamental humbleness (this should not be confused with servility); the second is freedom from self; the third is intrepid courage, which, taken in its widest interpretation, generally goes with truth; and the fourth --the power to love --although I have put it last, is the rarest.
The greatness of a man's power is the measure of his surrender.
Let us have wine and women, mirth and laughter. Sermons and soda water the day after.
Greatness be nothing unless it be lasting.
