The superior man is modest in his speech but exceeds in his actions.

Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship.
Only in a house where one has learnt to be lonely does one have this solicitude for things. One's relation to them, the daily seeing or touching, begins to become love, and to lay one open to pain.
All men's misfortunes spring from their hatred of being alone.
A lonely man is a lonesome thing, a stone, a bone, a stick, a receptacle for Gilbey's gin, a stooped figure sitting at the edge of a hotel bed, heaving copious sighs like the autumn wind.
There is none more lonely than the man who loves only himself.
One aged man -- one man -- can't fill a house.
People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.
Man's loneliness is but his fear of life.
Next to the young, I suppose the very old are the most selfish.
Those who live to the future must always appear selfish to those who live to the present.
If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.
Point me out the happy man and I will point you out either egotism, selfishness, evil --or else an absolute ignorance.
Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness.
By persistently remaining single, a man converts himself into a permanent public temptation. Men should be more careful.
A single man has not nearly the value he would have in a state of union. He is an incomplete animal. He resembles the odd half of a pair of scissors.
Men often give love for sex, women often give sex for love.
Friendship often ends in love; but love in friendship, never.
The greatest joy of life is to love and be loved.
The surest sign of age is loneliness. While one finds company in himself and his pursuits, he cannot be old, whatever his years may number.
In youth we run into difficulties. In old age difficulties run into us.
The fellow that agrees with everything you say is either a fool or he is getting ready to skin you.
Man, an animal that makes bargains.
You got to sing like you don't need the money; Love like you'll never get hurt; You got to dance like nobody's watchin'; It's gotta come from the heart if you want it to work.
The tighter you squeeze, the less you have.
Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Love is not love until love's vulnerable.
Women make love for love, men make love for lust.
Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom.
One does not fall in love; one grows into love, and love grows in him.
Love and you shall be loved. All love is mathematically just, as much as the two sides of an algebraic equation.
It is best to love wisely, no doubt: but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all.
Love and sex can go together and sex and unlove can go together and love and unsex can go together. But personal love and personal sex is bad.
Men are like sheep, of which a flock is more easily driven than a single one.
