I believe that man will not merely endure; he will prevail.

The end of wisdom is to dream high enough to lose the dream in the seeking of it.
Come Sleep! Oh Sleep, the certain knot of peace, the baiting-place of wit, the balm of woe, the poor man's wealth, the prisoner's release, the indifferent judge between the high and low.
There is between sleep and us something like a pact, a treaty with no secret clauses, and according to this convention it is agreed that, far from being a dangerous, bewitching force, sleep will become domesticated and serve as an instrument of our power to act. We surrender to sleep, but in the way that the master entrusts himself to the slave who serves him.
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend -- or a meaningful day.
The glory of friendship is not in the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is in the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him.
Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.
I shot an arrow into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For so swiftly it flew, the sight Could not follow it in its flight. I breathed a song into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For, who has sight so keen and strong That it can follow the flight of song? Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroken; And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.
The language of friendship is not words but meanings.
Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait to hear the answer.
Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.
Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.
It is normal to give away a little of one's life in order not to lose it all.
That must be wonderful; I have no idea of what it means.
Instead of killing and dying in order to produce the being that we are not, we have to live and let live in order to create what we are.
There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.
Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. But deep down below the surface of the average conscience a still, small voice says to us, something is out of tune.
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.
Knowledge rests not upon truth alone, but upon error also.
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end
Many times a day I realize how much my own life is built on the labors of my fellowmen, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.
Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine
All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible.
The salvation of the world is in man's suffering.
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.
Everything without tells the individual that he is nothing; everything within persuades him that he is everything.
In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life. It goes on.
The best way out of a difficulty is through it.
Right human relations is the only true peace.
The man who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.
There are times when silence has the loudest voice.
What sane person could live in this world and not be crazy?
You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.
It is respectable to have no illusions, and safe, and profitable and dull.
What is the answer? [Silence] In that case, what is the question?
If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.
Loving can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find that want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life.
Always forgive your enemies -- nothing annoys them so much.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Last, but by no means least, courage-moral courage, the courage of one's convictions, the courage to see things through. The world ;is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle-the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your ;conscience on the other.
Rest not. Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.
