All people are equal, it is not birth, it is virtue alone that makes the difference.

Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.
To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.
Failure is not the worst thing in the world -- the very worst is not to try
First ask yourself: What is the worst that can happen? Then prepare to accept it. Then proceed to improve on the worst.
The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.
Two basic rules of life: 1. Change is Inevitable 2. Everyone Resists Change. Remember this: When you are through changing... you're through.
When a man is wrong and won't admit it, he always gets angry.
My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.
Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within him the gift of miracles.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom.
One does not fall in love; one grows into love, and love grows in him.
Love and sex can go together and sex and unlove can go together and love and unsex can go together. But personal love and personal sex is bad.
Women make love for love, men make love for lust.
They do not love that do not show their love. The course of true love never did run smooth. Love is a familiar. Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love.
When angry, count four; when very angry, swear.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
