But if you do not find an intelligent companion, a wise and well-behaved person going the same way as yourself, then go on your way alone, like a king abandoning a conquered kingdom, or like a great elephant in the deep forest.
I knew finally that you shouldn't lie down and wait for darkness, leaving quietly, slouching towards death. You should run, because the only real fear is that you'll stop running, that you'll stop doing, that you'll come to an end before everything else.
For once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward; for there you have been, and there you long to return
The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes
It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine.
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

If I had to live my life again I'd make all the same mistakes - only sooner.
One makes mistakes: that is life. But it is never quite a mistake to have loved.
Life has a practice of living you, if you don't live it.
Take care of luxuries and the necessities will take care of themselves.
Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a f*cking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces.
