Why should we marry? Love is the only bond my lover and I need.

One is never too old to be a student of the enemy.

When you have wisdom that another person knows that he needs, you give it freely. But when the other person doesn`t yet know that he needs your wisdom, you keep it to yourself.

When you really know somebody you can`t hate them. Or maybe it`s just that you can`t really know them until you stop hating them.

When your age is ten, big for your age ain`t nothing like being big.

When you make one basket, it can never be more than one basket. But when you say words, they can be repeated over and over, and fill men`s hearts a thousand miles from where you first spoke them.

Love is finding that the things you like best about yourself are not in you at all, but in the person who completes you.

Personal affection is a luxury you can have only after all your enemies are eliminated. Until then, everyone you love is a hostage, sapping your courage and corrupting your judgment.

Love is random; fear is inevitable.
