My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
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!
Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.
True, we love life, not because we are used to living, but because we are used to loving. There is always some madness in love, but there is also always some reason in madness.
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.
Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship.
For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
