Any idiot can get laid when they're famous. That's easy. It's getting laid when you're not famous that takes some talent.

Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
We are given one life, and the decision is our whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind or whether to act and, in acting, to live.
There is no great genius without a mixture of madness.
The finest steel has to go through the hottest fire.
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul -- and sings the tunes without the words -- and never stops at all.
Teach only love for that is what you are.
I was nauseous and tingly all over. I was either in love or I had smallpox.
Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
For it is in giving that we receive.
Every single one of us can do things that no one else can do -- can love things that no one else can love. We are like violins. We can be used for doorstops, or we can make music. You know what to do.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes.
Endurance is the crowning quality...
If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living.
The sad truth is that opportunity doesn't knock twice. You can put things off until tomorrow but tomorrow may never come. Where will you be a few years down the line. Will it be everything you dreamed of. We seal our fate with the choices we take, but don't give a second thought to the chances we take.
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.
Life may change, but it may fly not; Hope may vanish, but can die not; Truth be veiled, but still it burneth; Love repulsed, -- but it returneth.
All God wants of man is a peaceful heart.
In every loving woman there is a priestess of the past -- a pious guardian of some affection, of which the object has disappeared.
The lover of life makes the whole world into his family, just as the lover of the fair sex creates his from all the lovely women he has found, from those that could be found, and those who are impossible to find.
One who has not only the four S's, which are required in every good lover, but even the whole alphabet; as for example... Agreeable, Bountiful, Constant, Dutiful, Easy, Faithful, Gallant, Honorable, Ingenious, Kind, Loyal, Mild, Noble, Officious, Prudent, Quiet, Rich, Secret, True, Valiant, Wise; the X indeed, is too harsh a letter to agree with him, but he is Young and Zealous.
When a man and a woman have an overwhelming passion for each other, it seems to me, in spite of such obstacles dividing them as parents or husband, that they belong to each other in the name of Nature, and are lovers by Divine right, in spite of human convention or the laws.
There is no pain equal to that which two lovers can inflict on one another. This should be made clear to all who contemplate such a union. The avoidance of this pain is the beginning of wisdom, for it is strong enough to contaminate the rest of our lives.
My God, these folks don't know how to love -- that's why they love so easily.
Every man needs two women, a quiet home-maker, and a thrilling nymph.
Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale her infinite variety. Other women cloy the appetites they feed, but she makes hungry where most she satisfies.
I do not love you

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

that this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. [New Test.]
An orange on the table, your dress on the rug, and you in my bed, sweet present of the present, cool of night, warmth of my life.
Faith has to do with things that are not seen, and hope with things that are not in hand.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1]
And now abide faith, hope and love; these three, but the greatest of these is love. [Corinthians 13:13]
It is the passion that is in a kiss that gives to it its sweetness; it is the affection in a kiss that sanctifies it.
To each one of us friendship has a different meaning. For all of us it is a gift. Friendship needs to be cherished and nurtured. It needs to be cultivated on a daily basis. Then shall it germinate and yield its fruit.
Friendship is to be purchased only by friendship. A man may have authority over others, but he can never have their hearts but by giving his own.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Humanity is never so beautiful as when praying for forgiveness, or else forgiving another.
The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves. We cannot force 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.
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.
Love all that has been created by God, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf and every ray of light. Love the beasts and the birds, love the plants, love every separate fragment. If you love each fragment, you will understand the mystery of the whole resting in God.
Love possesses not nor will it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love.
One does not fall in love; one grows into love, and love grows in him.
To love one child and to love all children, whether living or dead --somewhere these two loves come together. To love a no-good but humble punk and to love an honest man who believes himself to be an honest man --somewhere these, too, come together.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source.
Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again -- this is the brave and happy life.
He who allows his day to pass by without practicing generosity and enjoying life's pleasures is like a blacksmith's bellows. He breathes, but does not live.
Hope is the best possession. None are completely wretched but those who are without hope. Few are reduced so low as that.
I'm a romantic -- a sentimental person thinks things will last -- a romantic person hopes against hope that they won t.
I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.
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.
Love is swift, sincere, pious, joyful, generous, strong, patient, faithful, prudent, long-suffering, courageous, and never seeking its own; for wheresoever a person seeketh his own, there he falleth from love.
To love oneself is the beginning of a life long romance.
Live for those who love me, For those who know me true, For the Heaven that smiles above me, And awaits my coming too; For the cause that lacks resistance, For the future and the distance, And the good that I can do.
You've got to love what you're doing. If you love it, you can overcome any handicap or the soreness or all the aches and pains, and continue to play for a long, long time.
Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so indispensable, none so powerful, as hope. Without hope men are only half alive. With hope they dream and think and work.
Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your gold and good health have vanished.
Is your love for the Lord sufficient to give all your time and talents to his work?
They do not love that do not show their love. The course of true love never did run smooth. Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love.
