If he does not know who is at his side, he will have no friends.

When you repeat a mistake, it is not a mistake anymore: it is a decision.

Finding one important thing in your life doesn`t mean you have togive up all the other important things.

Can you train yourself to love the right man? Of course you can. The problem is forgetting about the wrong man, the one passing by who came in a door that was left open without asking permission.

Rich men never waste a penny: only poor people do that.

When you are in love, things make even more sense.

The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon.

We are always trying to convert people to a belief in our own explanation of the universe. We think that the more people there are who believe as we do, the more certain it will be that what we believe is the truth. But it doesn`t work that way at all.

Teaching is only demonstrating that it is possible. Learning is making it possible for yourself.

The moment we begin to seek love, love begins to seek us. And to save us.

The good fight is the one that`s fought in the name of our dreams.

Changes only happen when we go totally against everything we`re used to doing.

Freedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose - and commit myself to - what is best for me.

Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.

We always know which is the best road to follow, but we follow only the road that we have become accustomed to.
