I have lived some thirty-odd years on this planet, and I have yet to hear the first syllable of valuable or even earnest advice from my seniors.
Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.
Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.
Men are born to succeed, not to fail.
Our truest life is when we are in our dreams awake.
Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late
We lie in the lap of immense intelligence.
What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.
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.
It is impossible to go through life without trust: that is to be imprisoned in the worst cell of all, oneself.
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.
My only fear is that I may live too long. This would be a subject of dread to me.
Treasure your relationships, not your possessions.
Realize that if you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it.
When people are lonely they stoop to any companionship.

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked.
Men who are unhappy, like men who sleep badly, are always proud of the fact.
There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in traveling in a stagecoach, that ;it is often a comfort to shift one's position, and be bruised in a new place.
I do not believe you can do today's job with yesterday's methods and be in business tomorrow.
What all men are really after is some form, or perhaps only some formula, of peace.
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.
It's when you're safe at home that you wish you were having an adventure. When you're having an adventure you wish you were safe at home.
We used to wonder where war lived, what it was that made it so vile. And now we realize that we know where it lives, that it is inside ourselves.
My only wish is that my wishes be at rest.
You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.

A civilization is built on what is required of men, not on that which is provided for them.
You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.
The fewer the words, the better the prayer.
Not the power to remember, but its very opposite, the power to forget, is a necessary condition for our existence.
Be a sinner and sin strongly, but more strongly have faith and rejoice in Christ.
There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.
It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it.
When a person is determined to believe something, the very absurdity of the doctrine confirms them in their faith.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
The only way to compel men to speak good of us is to do it.
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.
Happiness is like a kiss. You must share it to enjoy it.
Opportunity dances with those who are ready on the dance floor.
We are never deceived; we deceive ourselves.
If all difficulties were known at the outset of a long journey, most of us would never start out at all.
Women wish to be loved not because they are pretty, or good, or well bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.
Learn from the mistakes of others, you can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
Love is like a fruit. It may look good, but you shouldn't bite in it until it's ripe.
Everyone admits that love is wonderful and necessary, yet no one agrees on just what it is.
We are responsible for actions performed in response to circumstances for which we are not responsible.
A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
It is easy -- terribly easy -- to shake a man's faith in himself. To take advantage of that to break a man's spirit is devil's work.
What's so remarkable about Love at first sight? It's when people have been looking at each other for years that it becomes remarkable.
There is none more lonely than the man who loves only himself.
Love poems are always cliche to me but not to the person it[[#146]]s for.
It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.
Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine
I'm youth, I'm joy, I'm a little bird that has broken out of the egg.
Saying what we think gives a wider range of conversation than saying what we know.
Never shall I forget the time I spent with you. Please continue to be my friend, as you will always find me yours.
Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.
Inequality is as dear to the American heart as liberty itself.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.
The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.
Some will always be above others. Destroy the inequality today, and it will appear again tomorrow.
An earthly kingdom cannot exist without inequality of persons. Some must be free, some serfs, some rulers, some subjects.
People differ in capacity, skill, health, strength; and unequal fortune is a necessary result of unequal condition. Such inequality is far from being disadvantageous either to individuals or to the community.
Between persons of equal income there is no social distinction except the distinction of merit. Money is nothing: character, conduct, and capacity are everything. There would be great people and ordinary people and little people, but the great would always be those who had done great things, and never the idiots whose mothers had spoiled them and whose fathers had left them a hundred thousand a year; and the little would be persons of small minds and mean characters, and not poor persons who had never had a chance. That is why idiots are always in favor of inequality of income (their only chance of eminence), and the really great in favor of equality.
The freest government, if it could exist, would not be long acceptable, if the tendency of the laws were to create a rapid accumulation of property in few hands, and to render the great mass of the population dependent and penniless. In such a case, the popular power would be likely to break in upon the rights of property, or else the influence of property to limit and control the exercise of popular power. Universal suffrage, for example, could not long exist in a community where there was great inequality of property. In the nature of things, those who have not property, and see their neighbors possess much more than they think them to need, cannot be favorable to laws made for the protection of property. When this class becomes numerous, it grows clamorous. It looks on property as its prey and plunder, and is naturally ready, at all times, for violence and revolution.
There are only two choices: A police state in which all dissent is suppressed or rigidly controlled; or a society where law is responsive to human needs. If society is to be responsive to human needs, a vast restructuring of our laws is essential. Realization of this need means adults must awaken to the urgency of the young peoples unrestin other words there must be created an adult unrest against the inequities and injustices in the present system. If the government is in jeopardy, it is not because we are unable to cope with revolutionary situations. Jeopardy means that either the leaders or the people do not realize they have all the tools required to make the revolution come true. The tools and the opportunity exist. Only the moral imagination is missing.
To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he is going.
Never be afraid to treat the path alone. Know which is your path and follow it wherever it may lead you; do not feel you have to follow in someone else's footsteps.
However fiercely opposed one may be to the present order, an old respect for the idea of order itself often prevents people from distinguishing between order and those who stand for order, and leads them in practice to respect individuals under the pretext of respecting order itself.
Oh, order! Material order, intellectual order, moral order! What a comfort and strength, and what an economy! To know where we are going and what we want; that is order. To keep ones word, to do the right thing, and at the right time: more order. To have everything under ones hand, to put ones whole army through its manoeuvres, to work with all ones resources: still order. To discipline ones habits and efforts and wishes, to organize ones life and distribute ones time, to measure ones duties and assert ones rights, to put ones capital and resources, ones talents and opportunities to profit: again and always order. Order is light, peace, inner freedom, self-determination: it is power. To conceive order, to return to order, to realize order in oneself, around oneself, by means of oneself, this is aesthetic and moral beauty, it is well-being, it is what ought to be.
Little minds have little worries, big minds have no time for worries.
Patience in the present, faith in the future, and joy in the doing
Nothing is more sad than the death of an illusion.
To create something you must be something.
We are formed and molded by our thoughts. Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them.
Do not follow the ideas of others, but learn to listen to the voice within yourself. Your body and mind will become clear and you will realize the unity of all things.
Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of crackpot than the stigma of conformity.
God does not require you to follow His leadings on blind trust. Behold the evidence of an invisible intelligence pervading everything, even your own mind and body.
Don't follow any advice, no matter how good, until you feel as deeply in your spirit as you think in your mind that the counsel is wise.
God knows people who are paid to have attitudes toward things, professional critics, make me sick; camp following eunuchs of literature. They won't even whore. They're all virtuous and sterile. And how well meaning and high minded. But they're all camp followers.
Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune; but great minds rise above them.
The subjective mind is entirely under the control of the objective mind. With the utmost fidelity it reproduces and works out to its final consequences whatever the objective mind impresses upon it.
What the mind attends to, the mind considers. What the mind constantly considers, the mind believes. What the mind believes, the mind eventually does.
Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Review your goals twice every day in order to be focused on achieving them.
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.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
No matter how good you get, there's always something further out there.
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other's consent.
Among my most prized possessions are words that I have never spoken.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become.
Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy.
We ought to think that we are one of the leaves of a tree, and the tree is all humanity. We cannot live without the others, without the tree.
All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.
If you look deep enough you will see music; the heart of nature being everywhere music.
The tragedy of life is not that a man loses, but that he almost wins.
The broadest and most prevalent error requires the most disinterested virtue to sustain it.
Keep true to the dreams of your youth.
Why should we think upon things that are lovely? Because thinking determines life. It is a common habit to blame life upon the environment. Environment modifies life but does not govern life. The soul is stronger than its surroundings.
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
Books, not which afford us a cowering enjoyment, but in which each thought is of unusual daring; such as an idle man cannot read, and a timid one would not be entertained by, which even make us dangerous to existing institution --such call I good books.
War is like love, it always finds a way.
War is a game that is played with a smile. If you can't smile, grin. If you can't grin, keep out of the way till you can.
Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books nobody reads.
If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.
I pick my favorite quotation and store them in my mind as ready armor, offensive or defensive, amid the struggle of this turbulent existence.
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
We are shut up in schools and college recitation rooms for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a belly-full of words and do not know a thing. The things taught in schools and colleges are not an education, but the means of education.
Words are alive; cut them and they bleed.
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!
Is not disease the rule of existence? There is not a lily pad floating on the river but has been riddled by insects. Almost every shrub and tree has its gall, oftentimes esteemed its chief ornament and hardly to be distinguished from the fruit. If misery loves company, misery has company enough. Now, at midsummer, find me a perfect leaf or fruit.
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.
Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them. Disagree with them. Glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough
to think they can change the world
Are the ones who do.
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises? If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured and far away. It is not important that he should mature as soon as an apple tree or an oak.
There is nothing capricious in nature and the implanting of a desire indicates that its gratification is in the constitution of the creature that feel it.
What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things instead of using people and loving things.
What we share with another ceases to be our own.
There are three wants which never can be satisfied: that of the rich, who wants something more; that of the sick, who wants something different; and that of the traveler, who says, Anywhere but here.
It is said that the world is in a state of bankruptcy, that the world owes the world more than the world can pay.
How beautiful is youth! how bright it gleams with its illusions, aspirations, dreams! Book of Beginnings, Story without End, Each maid a heroine, and each man a friend!
Men always want to be a woman's first love. Women have a more subtle instinct: What they like is to be a man's last romance.
The next best thing to saying a good thing yourself, is to quote one.
We rarely quote nowadays to appeal to authority... though we quote sometimes to display our sapience and erudition. Some authors we quote against. Some we quote not at all, offering them our scrupulous avoidance, and so make them part of our white mythology. Other authors we constantly invoke, chanting their names in cerebral rituals of propitiation or ancestor worship.
If you are going to tell people the truth, be funny or they will kill you.
Comedy is simply a funny way of being serious.
Don't be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps.
History is always written wrong, and so always needs to be rewritten.
A good coach will make his players see what they can be rather than what they are.
Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.
No one can arrive from being talented alone. God gives talent; work transforms talent into genius.
Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
Never think that God's delays are God's denials. Hold on; Hold fast; Hold out. Patience is genius.
The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.
Ones oldest friend is the best.
In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.
Everything that is beautiful and noble is the product of reason and calculation.
Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find tomorrow on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday's defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, If I had my life to live over again. Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day! Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
I just wake up and say, You're a bum, go do something worthwhile today.
Before they're plumbers or writers or taxi drivers or unemployed or journalists, before everything else, men are men. Whether heterosexual or homosexual. The only difference is that some of them remind you of it as soon as you meet them, and others wait for a little while.
Men aren't the way they are because they want to drive women crazy; they've been trained to be that way for thousands of years. And that training makes it very difficult for men to be intimate.
To live lightheartedly but not recklessly; to be gay without being boisterous; to be courageous without being bold; to show trust and cheerful resignation without fatalism -- this is the art of living.
If someone were to pay you $.10 for every kind word you ever spoke and collect $.05 for every unkind word, would you be rich or poor?
One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life; that word is love.
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and the lightning bug.
If we could see ourselves as others see us, we would vanish on the spot.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Some books are to be tasted; others to be swallowed; and some few to be chewed and digested.
In seeking wisdom thou art wise; in imagining that thou hast attained it, thou art a fool.
All that I am or hope to be I owe to my angel mother. I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.
How you look at a situation is very important, for how you think about a problem may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. When you get discouraged or depressed, try changing your attitude from negative to positive and see how life can change for you. Remember, your attitude toward a situation can help you to change it -- you create the very atmosphere for defeat or victory.
Youth is the time to go flashing from one end of the world to the other to try the manners of different nations; to hear the chimes at midnight; to see the sunrise in town and country; to be converted at a revival; to circumnavigate the metaphysics, write halting verses, run a mile to see a fire, and wait all day long in the theatre to applaud Hernani.
Someday somebody's going to ask you a question that you should say yes to.
Where there is great love there are always miracles.
Somebody already broke my heart.

[[#132]]gThe only true paradise is paradise lost
And see she flies And she is everywhere
God is subtle, but He is not malicious. I cannot believe that God plays dice with the world.
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use the pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time; a tremendous whack.
Aerodynamically the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn't know that so it goes on flying anyway.
There are many things that we would throw away if we were not afraid that others might pick them up.
It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.
Your chances of getting hit by lightning go up if you stand under a tree, shake your fist at the sky and [[#147]]Storms suck!
I don[[#146]]t have to be careful I[[#146]]ve got a gun!
Time tells the truth.
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you'll be a mile away and have his shoes.
If you don't find it in the index look very carefully throughout the entire catalog.
Of all the thirty-six alternatives, running away is best.
Let the golden age begin
Power corrupts. Absolute power is kind of neat
Please give me a second grace.
If you scatter thorns, don't go barefoot.
Fear is that little darkroom where negatives are developed.
Sometimes you need to make a mess
Time is what keeps things from happening all at once.
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.
I hope our wisdom will grow with our power, and teach us, that the less we use our power the greater it will be.
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.
What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to be more than all the words I have read in my life.
We are born not once but again and again.
Love is a snowmobile racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath. At night, the ice weasels come.
Let me feel now what sharp distress I may
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy
A pigeon is the same thing as a dove. Did you know that?
There is no remedy for love than to love more.
There are two tragedies in life. One is not to get your heart's desire. The other is to get it.
He made the world to be a grassy road before her wandering feet.
Don't tell a woman she's pretty; tell her there's no other woman like her, and all roads will open to you.
One's real life is so often the life that one does not lead.
Luck never gives; it only lends
Nothing is to wonderful to be true

Lovers alone wear sunlight
Life isn't fair. It's just fairer than death, that's all.
Some things have to be believed to be seen.
Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter.
Should we have stayed at home and thought of here? Where should we be today? Is it right to be watching strangers in a play in this strangest of theatres?
It's the same old story. Boy finds girl; boy loses girl; girl finds boy; boy forgets girl; boy remembers girl; girl dies in tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Years Day
We will go * Nowhere we know * We don't have to talk at all
A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.
In the depth of winter I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
Not all who wander are lost
At first cock-crow the ghosts must go back to their quiet graves below
Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.

Twenty to twenty-five! These are the years! Dont be content with things as they are. Dont take No for an answer. Never submit to failure. Do not be fobbed off with mere personal success or acceptance. You will make all kinds of mistakes; but as long as you are generous and true, and also fierce, you cannot hurt the world or even seriously distress her. She was made to be wooed and won by youth. She has lived and thrived only by repeated subjugations.
