Listen, everyone is entitled to my opinion.

All farewells should be sudden, when forever.
Don't be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.
What the eye does not admire the heart does not desire.
An animal will always look for a person's intentions by looking them right in the eyes.
The eye of the master will do more work than both his hands.
The eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul.
He had but one eye and the pocket of prejudice runs in favor of two.
The eyes see only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.
Let us eat and drink; for tomorrow we shall die. [Isaiah 22:13]
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
Stay at home in your mind. Don't recite other people's opinions. I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.
What you think of me is none of my business.
How much time he saves who does not look to see what his neighbor says or does or thinks.
I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means -- except by getting off his back.
I am also very proud to be a liberal. Why is that so terrible these days? The liberals were liberators -- they fought slavery, fought for women to have the right to vote, fought against Hitler, Stalin, fought to end segregation, fought to end apartheid. Liberals put an end to child labor and they gave us the five day work week! What's to be ashamed of?
Liberalism, above all, means emancipation -- emancipation from one's fears, his inadequacies, from prejudice, from discrimination... from poverty.
The will is never free -- it is always attached to an object, a purpose. It is simply the engine in the car -- it can't steer.
People who love only once in their lives are shallow people. What they call their loyalty, and their fidelity, I call either the lethargy of custom or their lack of imagination. Faithfulness is to the emotional life what consistency is to the life of the intellect -- simply a confession of failures.
The ear tends to be lazy, craves the familiar and is shocked by the unexpected; the eye, on the other hand, tends to be impatient, craves the novel and is bored by repetition.
There is no dependence that can be sure but a dependence upon one's self.
The ship of heaven guides itself and will not accept a wooden rudder.
Hope and fear are inseparable.
The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.
Men and women are limited not by the place of their birth, not by the color of their skin, but by the size of their hope.
To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.
Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.
There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in.
Man partly is and wholly hopes to be.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips it's turn.
A misty morning does not signify a cloudy day.
He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.
The person who knows HOW will always have a job. The person who knows WHY will always be his boss.
I shall stay the way I am because I do not give a damn.
I have a very strong feeling that the opposite of love is not hate -- it's apathy. It's not giving a damn.
She is such a good friend that she would throw all her acquaintances into the water for the pleasure of fishing them out again.
Feeling fat lasts nine months but the joy of becoming a mom lasts forever.
If men were equally at risk from this condition -- if they knew their bellies might swell as if they were suffering from end-stage cirrhosis, that they would have to go nearly a year without a stiff drink, a cigarette, or even an aspirin, that they would be subject to fainting spells and unable to fight their way onto commuter trains -- then I am sure that pregnancy would be classified as a sexually transmitted disease and abortions would be no more controversial than emergency appendectomies.
From the withered tree, a flower blooms.
Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within him the gift of miracles.
All colors will agree in the dark.
