- If you go through life deflecting everything as it comes in to you, you become the monster you hate.
- You can go out and love everybody in the world, but if nobody loves you back, then how is the heart judged?
- Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you. If you busy yourself with other things, it will rest upon your shoulder.
