Content makes poor men rich; discontentment makes rich men poor.

There is hope for all of us. Well, anyway, if you don't die you live through it, day in, day out.
My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.
Hope is the expectation that something outside of ourselves, something or someone external, is going to come to our rescue and we will live happily ever after.
Hope is the dream of a waking man.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it's turn.
To give a generous hope to a man of his own nature, is to enrich him immeasurably.
Such is hope, heaven's own gift to struggling mortals, pervading, like some subtle essence from the skies, all things both good and bad.
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul -- and sings the tunes without the words -- and never stops at all.
To live without Hope is to Cease to live.
Hope is a good breakfast but a bad supper.
That glittering hope is immemorial and beckons many men to their undoing.
He that lives upon hope will die fasting.
To rejoice in another's prosperity is to give content to your lot; to mitigate another's grief is to alleviate or dispel your own.
Rest not. Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.
There is love of course. And then there's life, its enemy.
Love's greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred.
But then they danced down the street like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!
A new world is not made simply by trying to forget the old. A new world is made with a new spirit, with new values. Our world may have begun that way, but today it is caricature. Our world is a world of things. What we dread most, in the face of the impending debacle, is that we shall be obliged to give up our gewgaws, our gadgets, all the little comforts that have made us so uncomfortable. We are not peaceful souls; we are smug, timid, queasy and quaky.
Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
Conformity, humility, acceptance... with these coins we are to pay our fares to paradise.
I remember my youth and the feeling that will never come back any more --the feeling that I could last for ever, outlast the sea, the earth, and all men; the deceitful feeling that lures us on to joys, to perils, to love, to vain effort --to death; the triumphant conviction of strength, the heat of life in the handful of dust, the glow in the heart that with every year grows dim, grows cold, grows small, and expires --and expires, too soon, too soon --before life itself.
Teach only love for that is what you are.
Love talked about is easily turned aside, but love demonstrated is irresistible.
There is a law that man should love his neighbor as himself. In a few hundred years it should be as natural to mankind as breathing or the upright gait; but if he does not learn it he must perish.
Everyone admits that love is wonderful and necessary, yet no one agrees on just what it is.
The Impossible Generalized Man today is the critic who believes in loving those unworthy of love as well as those worthy --yet believes this only insofar as no personal risk is entailed. Meaning he loves no one, worthy or no. This is what makes him impossible.
I was nauseous and tingly all over. I was either in love or I had smallpox.
The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible -- it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
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.
Don't settle for the sky and limit yourself when man has been on the moon. Exercise rights as individuals, you'll blast-off from wisdom with persistence and you WILL reach your goals real soon.
