Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Life is a journey, not a destination.
Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.
Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.
What can we see, read, acquire, but ourselves. Take the book, my friend, and read your eyes out, you will never find there what I find.
Imitation is suicide.
Life is a series of surprises and would not be worth taking or keeping if it were not.
Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, Faith looks up
Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.
It is not the length of life, but the depth.
