Know or listen to those who know.
Only the educated are free.
It's always too early to quit.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
Well done is better than well said.
The most effective way to do it, is to do it.
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
If you think you can do it, you can.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
Always desire to learn something useful.

It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.
People living deeply have no fear of death.
I postpone death by living, by suffering, by error, by risking, by giving, by losing.
