Leap, and the net will appear.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.

The tragedy of life is in what dies inside a man while he lives - the death of genuine feeling, the death of inspired response, the awareness that makes it possible to feel the pain or the glory of other men in yourself.

It is sadder to find the past again and find it inadequate to the present than it is to have it elude you and remain forever a harmonious conception of memory.
In deep sadness there is no place for sentimentality.
Good humor is the health of the soul, sadness is its poison.
