Never complain and never explain.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
Who seeks shall find.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
The dog that trots about finds a bone.
Well done is better than well said.
And I remember going to the record studio and there was a park across the street and I'd see all the children playing and I would cry because it would make me sad that I would have to work instead.
The word 'happiness' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
I've cried, and you'd think I'd be better for it, but the sadness just sleeps, and it stays in my spine the rest of my life.
Affliction comes to us, not to make us sad but sober not to make us sorry but wise.
Isn't it sad to go to your grave without ever wondering why you were born? Who, with such a thought, would not spring from bed, eager to resume discovering the world and rejoicing to be part of it?
Live by this credo: have a little laugh at life and look around you for happiness instead of sadness. Laughter has always brought me out of unhappy situations.
Sad things happen. They do. But we don't need to live sad forever.
In this world, full often, our joys are only the tender shadows which our sorrows cast.
I do believe that if you haven't learnt about sadness, you cannot appreciate happiness.
One must not let oneself be overwhelmed by sadness.
