“If you want to learn what someone fears losing, watch what they photograph.”
“Hard work is not a chore, to struggle is not a curse, and success is not a straight path”
“Figure out what nurtures your creativity and then learn how to feed it.”
“When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
“To simply wake up every morning a better person than when I went to bed.”
“Plenty of people miss their share of happiness, not because they never found it, but because they didn’t stop to enjoy it.”
“Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.”
I don’t really want to become normal, average, standard. I want merely to gain in strength, in the courage to live out my life more fully, enjoy more, experience more. I want to develop even more original and more unconventional traits.”
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”
“In a way, the world is a great liar. It shows you it worships and admires money, but at the end of the day it doesn’t. It says it adores fame and celebrity, but it doesn’t, not really. The world admires, and wants to hold on to, and not lose, goodness. It admires virtue. At the end it gives its greatest tributes to generosity, honesty, courage, mercy, talents well used, talents that, brought into the world, make it better. That’s what it really admires. That’s what we talk about in eulogies, because that’s what’s important. We don’t say, “The thing about Joe was he was rich.” We say, if we can, “The thing about Joe was he took care of people.””
“I have the deepest affection for intellectual conversations. The ability to just sit and talk. About love, about life, about anything, about everything. To sit under the moon with all the time in the world, the full-speed train that is our lives slowing to a crawl. Bound by no obligations, barred by no human limitations. To speak without regret or fear of consequence. To talk for hours and about what’s really important in life.”
“Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.”
