If you work for a man, in heavens name work for him!If he pays you wages that supply you your bread and butter, work for himspeak well of him, think well of him, stand by him and stand by the institution he represents. I think if I worked for a man I would work for him. I would not work for him a part of the time, and the rest of the time work against him. I would give an undivided service or none. If put to the pinch, an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness.

Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway.
I have found the paradox that if I love until it hurts, then there is no hurt, but only more love.
Dance like no one is watching, Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like no one is listening, Live like it's heaven on earth.
Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.
Perfection consists not in doing extraordinary things, but in doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.
One does not fall in love; one grows into love, and love grows in him.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love.
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.
Women make love for love, men make love for lust.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Where love is concerned, too much is not even enough.
Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
I hope that my achievements in life shall be these -- that I will have fought for what was right and fair, that I will have risked for that which mattered, and that I will have given help to those who were in need that I will have left the earth a better place for what I've done and who I've been.
Waiting is a trap. There will always be reasons to wait. The truth is, there are only two things in life, reasons and results, and reasons simply don't count.
If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning Good morning at total strangers.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
