A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.

The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is, and the future less resolved than it will be. French translation

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.

We know what we are, but know not what we may be.

Sometimes there is no next time, no time-outs, no second chances. Sometimes it's now or never.

This above all; to thine own self be true.
