Words are loaded pistols.

When the sword of rebellion is drawn, the sheath should be thrown away.
A riot is the language of the unheard.
What is a rebel? A man who says no.
To revolt is a natural tendency of life. Even a worm turns against the foot that crushes it. In general, the vitality and relative dignity of an animal can be measured by the intensity of its instinct to revolt.
Whoever thinks of stopping the uprising before it achieves its goals, I will give him ten bullets in the chest.
I never dared to be radical when young for fear it would make me conservative when old.
The doctrine of blind obedience and unqualified submission to any human power, whether civil or ecclesiastical, is the doctrine of despotism, and ought to have no place among Republicans and Christians.

I hate victims who respect their executioners.
When the rich wage war it is the poor who die.
Hell is other people.
One is still what one is going to cease to be and already what one is going to become. One lives one's death, one dies one's life.
Children will still die unjustly even in a perfect society. Even by his greatest effort, man can only propose to diminish, arithmetically, the sufferings of the world.
You can't create experience. You must undergo it.
Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.
To try to write love is to confront the muck of language: that region of hysteria where language is both too much and too little, excessive and impoverished.
If you say, I love you, then you have already fallen in love with language, which is already a form of break up and infidelity.
Love seeks no cause beyond itself and no fruit; it is its own fruit, its own enjoyment. I love because I love; I love in order that I may love.
To fall in love is to create a religion that has a fallible god.
Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.
Who so loves believes the impossible.
Love the whole world as a mother lovers her only child.
Love thou the rose, yet leave it on its stem.
No great intellectual thing was ever done by great effort.
The motto of chivalry is also the motto of wisdom; to serve all, but love only one.
The sweetest joy, the wildest woe is love.
A false enchantment can all too easily last a lifetime.
Absence and death are the same -- only that in death there is no suffering.
Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult.
They are able because they think they are able.
The king is the man who can.
I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.
When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.
It's pretty hard to be efficient without being obnoxious.
Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.
There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.
To sentence a man of true genius, to the drudgery of a school is to put a racehorse on a treadmill.
Natural ability without education has more often raised a man to glory and virtue than education without natural ability.
Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?
Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.
The longest absence is less perilous to love than the terrible trials of incessant proximity.
Parting is such sweet sorrow.
Oh, love is real enough; you will find it someday, but it has one archenemy -- and that is life.
There is love of course. And then there's life, its enemy.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible -- it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
Talk not of wasted affection; affection never was wasted.
The two qualities which chiefly inspire regard and affection [Are] that a thing is your own and that it is your only one.
We must accept life for what it actually is -- a challenge to our quality without which we should never know of what stuff we are made, or grow to our full stature.
The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.
It is not funny that anything else should fall down; only that a man should fall down. Why do we laugh? Because it is a gravely religious matter: it is the Fall of Man. Only man can be absurd: for only man can be dignified.
Absence diminishes little passions and increases great ones, as wind extinguishes candles and fans a fire.
Separated lovers cheat absence by a thousand fancies which have their own reality. They are prevented from seeing one another and they cannot write; nevertheless they find countless mysterious ways of corresponding, by sending each other the song of birds, the scent of flowers, the laughter of children, the light of the sun, the sighing of the wind, and the gleam of the stars --all the beauties of creation.
Absence sharpens love, presence strengthens it.
Absence from whom we love is worse than death, and frustrates hope severer than despair.
Our greatest pretenses are built up not to hide the evil and the ugly in us, but our emptiness. The hardest thing to hide is something that is not there.
