Everyone says that love hurts, but that's not true. Loneliness hurts, rejection hurts, losing someone hurts. Everyone confuses these things with love; but in reality, love is the only thing that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.

You play the hand you're dealt. I think the game's worthwhile.
There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counter-claimed by Satan.
We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything--you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is is kill him.
