Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Life isn’t about getting and having, it’s about giving and being.
For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.
It has always been a mystery to me how men can feel themselves honoured by the humiliation of their fellow beings.
Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great.
It's possible to love a human being if you don't know them too well.
If you have learned how to disagree without being disagreeable, then you have discovered the secrete of getting along - whether it be business, family relations, or life itself.
Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone.
Courage is being afraid but going on anyhow.
The struggle of my life created empathy - I could relate to pain, being abandoned, having people not love me.
I'm an introvert... I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.
The courage to be is the courage to accept oneself, in spite of being unacceptable.
I don't believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.
I had no idea that being your authentic self could make me as rich as I've become. If I had, I'd have done it a lot earlier.
Yes, I'm very close to my family. And being that close to your family, I think you also struggle with how to become your own person.
