A list of man’s enemies is often a truer guide to his character than a list of his friends.
Value is what people are willing to pay for it.
Life is like riding a bicycle. You don’t fall off unless you stop pedaling.
Live more simply, so that you can find time to enjoy the little pleasures of life.
As the sun that beholds the world is untouched by earthly impurities, so the Spirit that is in all things is untouched by external sufferings.
In the face of uncertainty, there is nothing wrong with hope.
Life brings tears, smiles, and memories: the tears dry, the smile fades, but the memories live on forever.
Today the world changes so quickly that in growing up we take leave not just of youth but of the world we were young in. Fear and resentment of what is new is really a lament for the memories of our childhood.
Forgiveness is a virtue of the learned. To err is human, to forgive divine.
If you place a low value on yourself, you can be sure the world will not overprice you.
Paradise is always where love dwells.
—Jean Paul (German Novelist)
