  • ... when you start to bore yourself and others, that's when you begin to get old.

  • It is a great blessing to be able to forget, but it takes a lot of wisdom to know what should be forgotten.

  • What would be achieved ever if people lost the ability to dream?

  • It is when you doubt yourself that you are grown up.

  • Scientists have a second brain where other people have their hearts.

  • ... innocence is the hardest thing to prove.

  • Once you allow anyone to terrorize you, you will be terrorized all your life. Terror corrupts. Pretty soon you'll be terrorizing others. ... Life doesn't mean anything if you can't rid yourself of fear.

  • You are free only when you care for nobody in the world. But if you stop caring, life isn't worth living.

  • [Sculpture:] The most breadless art of our day.

  • No fight is harder than the struggle against the thing you want most to believe.

  • ... there are things you mustn't even try to explain. They either become trite or they tie you down to something that's only half true.

  • There are as many jealousies in life as there are different flowers or trees or animals.
