Life is God's novel. Let him write it.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
Reading made Don Quixote a gentleman, but believing what he read made him mad.
George Bernard Shaw
The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.
Happiness is your dentist telling you it won't hurt and then having him catch his hand in the drill.
I'd call him a sadistic, hippophilic necrophile, but that would be beating a dead horse.
Give him enough rope and he will hang himself.
My idol is Emile Zola. He was a man of the left, so people expected of him a kind of 'Les Miserables,' in which the underdogs are always noble people. But he went out, and found a lot of ambitious, drunk, slothful and mean people out there. Zola simply could not - and was not interested in - telling a lie.
Do not just look at your boyfriend as just a boyfriend. Look at him as a friend, too.
There is in every madman a misunderstood genius whose idea, shining in his head, frightened people, and for whom delirium was the only solution to the strangulation that life had prepared for him.

No individual has any right to come into the world and go out of it without leaving behind him distinct and legitimate reasons for having passed through it.
George Washington Carver
The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes 'sight-seeing.'
Daniel J. Boorstin
The funny thing is that my husband couldn't be sweeter. He looks like this bad boy. He's got tattoos and earrings and a mohawk, but when you talk to him and he's around you, he's such a gentleman. He holds doors for ladies. He pulls out chairs. He cooks. He cleans.
Go up close to your friend, but do not go over to him! We should also respect the enemy in our friend.
The end of life is to be like God, and the soul following God will be like Him.
Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him.
H. L. Mencken
I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
Nobody is forgotten when it is convenient to remember him.
I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty, and like Him, I love all of humanity.
I truly have a village supporting me. My son has godmothers, godfathers, grandparents and so many others in his life who love him as much as I do. They're there for both of us. I may not have a mate or husband, but I'm definitely not a single parent.
He's just like my father that way-my father just adored my mother and let her do whatever she wanted. John's like that. He's a very rare man, a very good man, and I've had a good life with him. I'm proud to be walking in the wake of Johnny's fame.
June Carter Cash
