By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity. Another man's, I mean.

Annihilation has no terrors for me, because I have already tried it before I was born --a hundred million years --and I have suffered more in an hour, in this life, than I remember to have suffered in the whole hundred million years put together. There was a peace, a serenity, an absence of all sense of responsibility, an absence of worry, an absence of care, grief, perplexity; and the presence of a deep content and unbroken satisfaction in that hundred million years of holiday which I look back upon with a tender longing and with a grateful desire to resume, when the opportunity comes.
Why is it that we rejoice at birth and grieve at a funeral? It is because we are not the person involved.
When a person cannot deceive himself the chances are against his being able to deceive other people.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
What is there that confers the noblest delight? What is that which swells a man's breast with pride above that which any other experience can bring to him? Discovery! To know that you are walking where none others have walked; that you are beholding what human eye has not seen before; that you are breathing a virgin atmosphere. To give birth to an idea, to discover a great thought -- an intellectual nugget, right under the dust of a field that many a brain-plough had gone over before. To find a new planet, to invent a new hinge, to find a way to make the lightning carry your messages. To be the first -- that is the idea.
Do something every day that you don't want to do. This is the golden rule for acquiring the habit of doing your duty without pain.
I have never taken any exercise except sleeping and resting.
Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.
