We are all born for love. It is the principle of existence, and its only end.

People love others not for who they are, but for how they make them feel.
Everyone admits that love is wonderful and necessary, yet no one agrees on just what it is.
To fail to love is not to exist at all.
Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.
Thoughts have power; thoughts are energy. And you can make your world or break it by your own thinking.
He that is born to be hanged shall never be drowned.
Love is what you've been through with somebody.
If a man is destined to drown, he will drown even in a spoonful of water.
Destiny has two ways of crushing us -- by refusing our wishes and by fulfilling them.
One meets his destiny often in the road he takes to avoid it.
Fate, then, is a name for facts not yet passed under the fire of thought; for causes which are unpenetrated.
The law of harvest is to reap more than you sow. Sow an act, and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny.
Death and life have their determined appointments; riches and honors depend upon heaven.
Love is the strange bewilderment that overtakes one person on account of another person.
The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance.
What's so remarkable about Love at first sight? It's when people have been looking at each other for years that it becomes remarkable.
What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things.
Those who haven't loved somebody else, more than they love themselves haven't even begun to live
But love is blind, and lovers cannot see What petty follies they themselves commit
The eternal quest of the human being is to shatter his loneliness.
Laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.
There is no such thing as conversation. It is an illusion. There are intersecting monologues, that is all.
It is easier to keep half a dozen lovers guessing than to keep one lover after he has stopped guessing.
Sex is more exciting on the screen and between the pages than between the sheets.
Hope is a bad thing. It means that you are not what you want to be. It means that part of you is dead, if not all of you. It means that you entertain illusions. It's a sort of spiritual clap, I should say.
Criticism should not be querulous and wasting, all knife and root-puller, but guiding, instructive, inspiring.
Criticism is prejudice made plausible.
Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I'll show you someone who has overcome adversity.
You're never s good as everyone tells you when you win, and you're never as bad as they say when you lose.
Do right. Do your best. Treat others as you want to be treated.
Sex is the most fun you can have without laughing.
Every woman is a rebel, and usually in wild revolt against herself.
The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.
Criticism is a study by which men grow important and formidable at very small expense. He whom nature has made weak, and idleness keeps ignorant, may yet support his vanity by the name of a critic.
Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.
If you will discipline yourself to make your mind self-sufficient you will thereby be least vulnerable to injury from the outside.
Without discipline, there is no life at all.
He who lives without discipline dies without honor.
Blind and unwavering undisciplined at all times constitutes the real strength of all free men.
What it lies in our power to do, it lies in our power not to do.
Self-respect is the root of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself.
If we do not discipline ourselves the world will do it for us.
No man is such a conqueror, as the one that has defeated himself.
No man or woman has achieved an effective personality who is not self-disciplined. Such discipline must not be an end in itself, but must be directed to the development of resolute Christian character.
If you once turn on your side after the hour at which you ought to rise, it is all over. Bolt up at once.
A style does not go out of style as long as it adapts itself to its period. When there is an incompatibility between the style and a certain state of mind, it is never the style that triumphs.
The style of an author should be the image of his mind, but the choice and command of language is the fruit of exercise.
The most durable thing in writing is style, and style is the most valuable investment a writer can make with his time. It pays off slowly, your agent will sneer at it, your publisher will misunderstand it, and it will take people you have never heard of to convince them by slow degrees that the writer who puts his individual mark on the way he writes will always pay off.
It is the mark of an instructed mind to rest satisfied with the degree of precision which the nature of the subject admits and not to seek exactness when only an approximation of the truth is possible.
It is always self-defeating to pretend to the style of a generation younger than your own; it simply erases your own experience in history.
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.
The fool thinks himself to be wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool. [Measure For Measure]
One pain is lessened by another's anguish.
A miser grows rich by seeming poor. An extravagant man grows poor by seeming rich.
Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law.
See that each hour's feelings, and thoughts and actions are pure and true; then your life will be also.
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned.
Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
When women love us, they forgive us everything, even our crimes; when they do not love us, they give us credit for nothing, not even out virtues.
A woman is like a teabag. You can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.
There is only one real tragedy in a woman's life. The fact that her past is always her lover, and her future invariably her husband.
When a woman behaves like a man why doesn't she behave like a nice man?
The woman who can create her own job is the woman who will win fame and fortune.
Don't you realize that as long as you have to sit down to pee, you'll never be a dominant force in the world? You'll never be a convincing technocrat or middle manager. Because people will know. She's in there sitting down.
These impossible women! How they do get around us! The poet was right: Can't live with them, or without them.
Women are most fascinating between the ages of thirty-five and forty, after they have won a few races and know how to pace themselves. Since few women ever pass forty, maximum fascination can continue indefinitely.
Enjoy your happiness while you have it, and while, you have it do not too closely scrutinize its foundation.
There is hunger for ordinary bread, and there is hunger for love, for kindness, for thoughtfulness; and this is the great poverty that makes people suffer so much.
The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but rather what he longs to attain.
A sex symbol becomes a thing. I hate being a thing.
It's not till sex has died out between a man and a woman that they can really love. And now I mean affection. Now I mean to be fond of (as one is fond of oneself) --to hope, to be disappointed, to live inside the other heart. When I look back on the pain of sex, the love like a wild fox so ready to bite, the antagonism that sits like a twin beside love, and contrast it with affection, so deeply unrepeatable, of two people who have lived a life together (and of whom one must die) it's the affection I find richer. It's that I would have again. Not all those doubtful rainbow colors.
If we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find we have lost the future.
Age is whatever you think it is. You are as old as you think you are.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
In politics, what begins in fear usually ends in folly.
There is a lust in man no charm can tame: Of loudly publishing his neighbor's shame: On eagles wings immortal scandals fly, while virtuous actions are born and die.
What most men desire is a virgin who is a whore.
I know we're not saints or virgins or lunatics; we know all the lust and lavatory jokes, and most of the dirty people; we can catch buses and count our change and cross the roads and talk real sentences. But our innocence goes awfully deep, and our discreditable secret is that we don't know anything at all, and our horrid inner secret is that we don't care that we don't.
Society drives people crazy with lust and calls it advertising.
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
There are only two roads that lead to something like human happiness. They are marked by the words: love and achievement. In order to be happy oneself it is necessary to make at least one other person happy. The secret of human happiness is not in self-seeking but in self-forgetting.
The more things change, the more they remain the same.
For organizations and employees alike, the only real security is the ability to grow, change and adapt.
Many deceive themselves, imagining they'll find happiness in change.
Let us resolve to be masters, not the victims, of our history, controlling our own destiny without giving way to blind suspicions and emotions.
Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
Nothing is more active than thought, for it travels over the universe, and nothing is stronger than necessity for all must submit to it.
Gaining control of your thoughts is as easy as sitting by the ocean and controlling the waves.
A thought which does not result in an action is nothing much, and an action which does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
You are everything that is, your thoughts, your life, your dreams come true. You are everything you choose to be. You are as unlimited as the endless universe.
The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
Change is difficult but often essential to survival.
The willingness to take risks is our grasp of faith.
Think big thoughts, but relish small pleasures.
People who take risks are the people you'll lose against.
We don't grow unless we take risks. Any successful company is riddled with failures.
When boasting ends, there dignity begins.
Dignity consists not in possessing honors, but in the consciousness that we deserve them.
Only man has dignity; only man, therefore, can be funny.
Perhaps the only true dignity of man is his capacity to despise himself.
Our dignity is not in what we do, but what we understand.
In human relationships, kindness and lies are worth a thousand truths.
It is impossible to go through life without trust: that is to be imprisoned in the worst cell of all, oneself.
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.
Destiny is an absolutely definite and inexorable ruler. Physical ability and moral determination count for nothing. It is impossible to perform the simplest act when the gods say no. I have no idea how they bring pressure to bear on such occasions; I only know that it is irresistible.
Realize that if you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it.
Treasure your relationships, not your possessions.

Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.
Don't fear change -- embrace it.
Learn not only to find what you like, learn to like what you find.
Become a student of change. It is the only thing that will remain constant.
Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.
If you can't trust people, who can you trust?
Don't trust the person who has broken faith once.
Faith is trust in what the spirit learned eons ago.
Oh for someone with a heart, head and hand. Whatever they call them, what do I care, aristocrat, democrat, autocrat, just be it one that can rule and dare not lie.
Never trust the man who tells you all his troubles but keeps from you all his joys.
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.
The man who gives little with a smile gives more than the man who gives much with a frown.
It's tough trying to keep your feet on the ground, your head above the clouds, your nose to the grindstone, your shoulder to the wheel, your finger on the pulse, your eye on the ball and your ear to the ground.
He declares himself guilty who justifies himself before accusation.
Love is like war, easy to begin, hard to end
Trust no friend without faults, and love a woman, but no angel.
Patience, money and time bring all things to past.
A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You'll be criticized anyway.
A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved, by others. (Wizard to the Tin Man)
Opportunities neglected can never be recovered.
Circumstances are beyond human control, but our conduct is in our own power.
Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal. Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs.
Whether you're winning or losing, it is important to always be yourself. You can't change because of the circumstances around you.
Do not let circumstances control you. You change your circumstances.
Man is not the creature of circumstances, circumstances are the creatures of men. We are free agents, and man is more powerful than matter.
All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking.
All lovely things will have an ending, All lovely things will fade and die; And youth, that's now so bravely spending, Will beg a penny by and by.
Rashness belongs to youth; prudence to old age.
Thoughts are things; they have tremendous power. Thoughts of doubt and fear are pathways to failure. When you conquer negative attitudes of doubt and fear you conquer failure. Thoughts crystallize into habit and habit solidifies into circumstances.
Let the wise guard their thoughts, which are difficult to perceive, extremely subtle, and wander at will. Thought which is well guarded is the bearer of happiness.
Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bear bad fruit.
Thinking is the most unhealthy thing in the world, and people die of it just as they die of any other disease. Fortunately, in England at any rate, thought is not catching. Our splendid physique as a people is entirely due to our national stupidity.
Empty your mind of all thoughts. Let your heart be at peace. Watch the turmoil of beings, but contemplate their return. Each separate being in the universe returns to the common source.
While there's life, there's hope.
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life. The conviction of the rich that the poor are happier is no more foolish than the conviction of the poor that the rich are.
Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
The worst sorrows in life are not in its losses and misfortune, but its fears.
