Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.
I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
Friendship may, and often does, grow into love, but love never subsides into friendship.
If your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.
An ant on the move does more than a dozing ox.
The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence.
The wise man does at once what the fool does finally.
A man can be himself only so long as he is alone, and if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom, for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.
People have a moral standard about what they will do and will not do. At the end of the day someone who cheats has a lower moral standard than someone who does not. And they will cheat in other areas of life as well.
The person who knows one thing and does it better than anyone else, even if it only be the art of raising lentils, receives the crown he merits. If he raises all his energy to that end, he is a benefactor of mankind and its rewarded as such.
The voice of the intellect is a soft one, but it does not rest until it has gained a hearing.
The illiterate of the future will not be the person who cannot read. It will be the person who does not know how to learn.

The happiness of a man in this life does not consist in the absence but in the mastery of his passions.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
He who studies medicine without books sails an uncharted sea, but he who studies medicine without patients does not go to sea at all.
