I have that precious commodity - freedom. I can live my life a day at a time, and I am open to whatever the next day brings. I know I sound as if I have been off with some guru in India, but I haven't. I've come to realise the value of being able to decide for oneself.

Every day without fail one should consider himself as dead. There is a saying of the elders that goes, 'Step from under the eaves and you're a dead man. Leave the gate and the enemy is waiting.' This is not a matter of being careful. It is to consider oneself as dead beforehand.
To be compassionate is not a joke. It's not that simple. One has to discover a certain bigness in oneself. That bigness should be centered on oneself, not in terms of money, not in terms of power you wield, not in terms of any status that you can command in the society, but it should be centered on oneself.

As a painter today you have to work without that essential platform. But if one does not deceive oneself and accepts this lack of certainty, other things may come into play.
There is no excellence without labor. One cannot dream oneself into either usefulness or happiness.
Liberty Hyde Bailey
With age comes a greater wisdom, an ease and comfort with oneself.
Nothing is harder than to accept oneself.
Fashion in the past meant conforming and losing oneself. Fashion in the present means being individual and finding oneself.
The advantage of doing one's praising for oneself is that one can lay it on so thick and exactly in the right places.
In France one must adapt oneself to the fragrance of a urinal.
Every good man progressively becomes God. To become God, to be man, and to educate oneself, are expressions that are synonymous.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
I don't know whether I believe in God or not. I think, really, I'm some sort of Buddhist. But the essential thing is to put oneself in a frame of mind which is close to that of prayer.

I think it's important for one to take a certain distance from oneself.
And what I like about it is it makes me happy and I think it makes a lot of people happy to go to the movies and to not think about the problems of the day or the problems of tomorrow or the yesterday and just go on for the ride and have the fun of losing oneself in a fantasy.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
