Until the day of his death, no man can be sure of his courage.

What you get free costs too much.
Listen, my friend, there are two races of beings. The masses teeming and happy --common clay, if you like --eating, breeding, working, counting their pennies; people who just live; ordinary people; people you can't imagine dead. And then there are the others --the noble ones, the heroes. The ones you can quite well imagine lying shot, pale and tragic; one minute triumphant with a guard of honor, and the next being marched away between two gendarmes.
Our repugnance to death increases in proportion to our consciousness of having lived in vain.
The timid are afraid before the danger, the cowardly while in danger, and the courageous after danger.
He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
The best work never was and never will be done for money.
Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured and far away. It is not important that he should mature as soon as an apple tree or an oak.
Faith makes a Christian. Life proves a Christian. Trial confirms a Christian. Death crowns a Christian.
Friendship often ends in love; but love in friendship, never.
