Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.
The truth is you don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.
Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.
I have a simple philosophy: Fill what’s empty. Empty what’s full. Scratch where it itches.
We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.
