Character is determined more by the lack of certain experiences than by those one has had.

In every real man a child is hidden that wants to play.

Is life not a thousand times too short for us to bore ourselves?

People who have given us their complete confidence believe that they have a right to ours. The inference is false, a gift confers no rights.

The demand to be loved is the greatest of all arrogant presumptions.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

When marrying, ask yourself this question: Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory.
