My father taught me to work, but not to love it. I never did like to work, and I don't deny it. I'd rather read, tell stories, crack jokes, talk, laugh -- anything but work.
Now I know the things I know, and I do the things I do; and if you do not like me so, to hell, my love, with you!
Drink and dance and laugh and lie,
Love, the reeling midnight through,
For tomorrow we shall die!
(But, alas, we never do.)
I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, 'How many good things have you done in your life?' rather he will ask, 'How much love did you put into what you did?
I never did anything worth doing by accident, nor did any of my inventions come by accident; they came by work.
I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.
She was ready to deny the existence of space and time rather than admit that love might not be eternal.
I love to talk about nothing it's the only thing I know anything about.
I don't mind making jokes, but I don't want to look like one.
Love doesn't just sit there like a stone; it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new.
The truth is I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can't have those things then I feel like a caged animal and I'd rather not be in a cage. I'd rather be dead. And it's real simple. And I think it's not that uncommon.
