Each age has deemed the new-born year the fittest time for festal cheer.

Chance is the one thing you can't buy. You have to pay for it and you have to pay for it with your life, spending a lot of time, you pay for it with time, not the wasting of time but the spending of time.
To save time is to lengthen life.
Life in the twentieth century is like a parachute jump; you have to get it right the first time.
Family jokes, though rightly cursed by strangers, are the bond that keeps most families alive.
The family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself.
Nature, time and patience are the three great physicians.
Character is the sum and total of a person's choices.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Youth comes but once in a lifetime.
When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart.
We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.
We judge others by their behavior. We judge ourselves by our intentions.
Talents are best nurtured in solitude. Character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
The worst thing that happens to you may be the best thing for you if you don't let it get the best of you.
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.
Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.
The superficiality of the American is the result of his hustling. It needs leisure to think things out; it needs leisure to mature. People in a hurry cannot think, cannot grow, nor can they decay. They are preserved in a state of perpetual puerility.
The busier we are the more leisure we have.
In our leisure we reveal what kind of people we are.
They talk of the dignity of work. The dignity is in leisure.
Other countries drink to get drunk, and this is accepted by everyone; in France, drunkenness is a consequence, never an intention. A drink is felt as the spinning out of a pleasure, not as the necessary cause of an effect which is sought: wine is not only a philter, it is also the leisurely act of drinking.
Anyone can be great with money. With money, greatness is not a talent but an obligation. The trick is to be great without money.
Time will take your money, but money won't buy time.
Time is more value than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.
The best things in life are never rationed. Friendship, loyalty, and love. They do not require coupons.
Don't make friends who are comfortable to be with. Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up.
Leisure time should be an occasion for deep purpose to throb and for ideas to ferment. Where a man allows leisure to slip without some creative use, he has forfeited a bit of happiness.
