Every night when I go to bed, I hope that I may never wake again, and every morning renews my grief.
I've never known anyone who was what he or she seemed; or at least, was only what he or she seemed. People carry worlds within them.
Keep on going and the chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down.
Fortune always favors the brave, and never helps a man who does not help himself.
P. T. Barnum
Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
People always say life is short. I've never been convinced of that - mine seems to have a tendency to go on and on.
You know, people call mystery novels or thrillers 'puzzles.' I never understood that, because when I buy a puzzle, I already know what it is. It's on the box. And even if I don't, if it's a 5,000-piece puzzle of the 'Mona Lisa', it's not like I put the last piece in and go, 'I had no idea it's the 'Mona Lisa'!'

As ugly an admission as this is, I met my wife at a party, and if I had been to the same party and she were dressed in different clothes, I might never have talked to her. She might have projected something that I found distasteful, even if she otherwise looked exactly the same - a beautiful woman to me.
I've never minded solitude. For a writer, it's a natural condition. But caring for a dementia sufferer leads to a peculiar kind of loneliness.
I'm not from the States, so Thanksgiving, for me, was never a huge tradition.
You can turn your back on a person, but never turn your back on a drug, especially when its waving a razor sharp hunting knife in your eye.

How absurd men are! They never use the liberties they have, they demand those they do not have. They have freedom of thought, they demand freedom of speech.
Once you get a spice in your home, you have it forever. Women never throw out spices. The Egyptians were buried with their spices. I know which one I'm taking with me when I go.
I never listen to 'Nevermind.' I haven't listened to it since we put it out. That says something.
A wise ruler ought never to keep faith when by doing so it would be against his interests.
Jail didn't make me find God, He's always been there. They can lock me up, but my spirit and my love can never be confined to prison walls.
Never take anything for granted.

I could never have imagined that firing 67 people on national television would actually make me more popular, especially with the younger generation.
Design can never be an ultimate explanation for anything. It can only be a proximate explanation. A plane or a car is explained by a designer but that's because the designer himself, the engineer, is explained by natural selection.
