Like all of us in this storm between birth and death, I can wreak no great changes on the world, only small changes for the better, I hope, in the lives of those I love.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
When we are born we cry that we are come.. to this great stage of fools.
We are brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are.
Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.
Why is it that we rejoice at a birth and grieve at a funeral? It is because we are not the person involved.
I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.
We should weep for men at their birth, not at their death.
You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.
