The saddest thing I can imagine is to get used to luxury.

The imaginations which people have of one another are the solid facts of society.
Successful people are simply people who learn to solve their problems... they are not people without problems.
Bad people are less a problem than indifferent people.
What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things.
Serious people have few ideas. People with ideas are never serious.
Shallow people believe in luck and in circumstances; Strong people believe in cause and effect.
I sometimes think that God in creating man somewhat overestimated his ability.
The very act of believing creates strength of its own.
Faith moves mountains, but you have to keep pushing while you are praying.
Faith is building on what you know is here, so you can reach what you know is there.
Faith... is the art of holding on to things your reason once accepted, despite your changing moods.
God give me the serenity to accept things which cannot be changed;Give me courage to change things which must be changed;And the wisdom to distinguish one from the other.
Change occurs in direct proportion to dissatisfaction, but dissatisfaction never changes.
Stop the habit of wishful thinking and start the habit of thoughtful wishes.
Don't wish it were easier, wish you were better.
Some people develop a wishbone where their backbone should be.
We really have to understand the person we want to love. If our love is only a will to possess, it is not love. If we only think of ourselves, if we know only our own needs and ignore the needs of the other person, we cannot love.
Stop the mindless wishing that things would be different. Rather than wasting time and emotional and spiritual energy in explaining why we don't have what we want, we can start to pursue other ways to get it.
The worst thing that one can do is not try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized -- and never knowing.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
No matter what we want of life we have to give up something in order to get it.
Love is blind; friendship closes its eyes.
Tis the privilege of friendship to talk nonsense, and have her nonsense respected.
Far more numerous are those as such; who think too little and talk too much.
Humility must always be the portion of any man who receives acclaim earned in the blood of his followers and the sacrifices of his friends.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
Pull the string, and it will follow wherever you wish. Push it, and it will go nowhere at all.
I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality, its futility, its stupidity.
Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind. War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.
I do not know with what weapons World War 3 will be fought, but World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones.
In war, there are no unwounded soldiers.
Success doesn't mean the absence of failures; it means the attainment of ultimate objectives. It means winning the war, not every battle.
A boy doesn't have to go to war to be a hero; he can say he doesn't like pie when he sees there isn't enough to go around.
High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.
No man is lonely while eating spaghetti; it requires so much attention.
Nuptial love makes mankind; friendly love perfects it; but wanton love corrupts and debases it.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
