I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book!
The aims of life are the best defense against death.
Sometimes skulls are thick. Sometimes hearts are vacant. Sometimes words don't work.
But I don't believe that life is supposed to make you feel good, or to make you feel miserable either. Life is just supposed to make you feel.
There are lots of ways of being miserable, but there’s only one way of being comfortable, and that is to stop running round after happiness. If you make up your mind not to be happy there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have a fairly good time.
There are as many styles of beauty as there are visions of happiness.
Always laugh when you can, it is cheap medicine.
Everything in nature invites us constantly to be what we are.
Joy multiplies when it is shared among friends, but grief diminishes with every division. That is life.
I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of beauty.
