Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine
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.
When I was One, / I had just begun. / When I was Two, / I was nearly new. / When I was Three / I was hardly me. / When I was Four, / I was not much more. / When I was Five, I was just alive. / But now I am Six, I’m as clever as clever, / So I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.
Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again.
To get back my youth I would do anything in the world, except take exercise, get up early, or be respectable.

Strive that your actions day by day may be beautiful prayers. Turn towards God, and seek always to do that which is right and noble. Enrich the poor, raise the fallen, comfort the sorrowful, bring healing to the sick, reassure the fearful, rescue the oppressed, bring hope to the hopeless, shelter the destitute!
Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.
Age is not all decay; it is the ripening, the swelling, of the fresh life within, that withers and bursts the husk.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.
