I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things.

The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.

The knowledge of the world is only to be acquired in the world, and not in a closet.

Never feel remorse for what you have thought about your wife; she has thought much worse things about you.

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.

Often it is the most deserving people who cannot help loving those that destroy them.

Rhythm is the basis of life, not steady forward progress. The forces of creation, destruction, and preservation have a whirling, dynamic interaction.

The simple days make the memorable ones.

To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, that is to have succeeded.
