Fear is a disease that eats away at logic and makes man inhuman.

I cannot walk through the suburbs in the solitude of the night without thinking that the night pleases us because it suppresses idle details, just as our memory does.
Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.

For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
In general, pride is at the bottom of all great mistakes.
No problem is insurmountable. With a little courage, teamwork and determination a person can overcome anything.
How you think when you lose determines how long it will be until you win.
Honor isn't about making the right choices. It's about dealing with the consequences.
You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.

Death gives us sleep, eternal youth, and immortality.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back into the same box.
Death is a shadow that always follows the body.
Life is a dream walking death is a going home.
We come and cry and that is life, we cry and go and that is death.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.

The only perfect love to be found on earth is not sexual love, which is riddled with hostility and insecurity, but the wordless commitment of families, which takes as its model mother-love.

We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving
Men and women are limited not by the place of their birth, not by the color of their skin, but by the size of their hope.

What comes first, the compass or the clock? Before one can truly manage time (the clock), it is important to know where you are going, what your priorities and goals are, in which direction you are headed (the compass). Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going. Rather than always focusing on what's urgent, learn to focus on what is really important.
There sighs, lamentations and loud wailings resounded through the starless air, so that at first it made me weep; strange tongues, horrible language, words of pain, tones of anger, voices loud and hoarse, and with these the sound of hands, made a tumult which is whirling through that air forever dark, and sand eddies in a whirlwind.

It expresses and confirms, rather than explains or questions, the sources of cultural attitudes and values. Because myth anchors the present in the past it is a sociological charter for a future society which is an exact replica of the present one.
Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths.
Eggs and oaths are easily broken.
