There is nothing so terrible as activity without insight.
Be generous with kindly words, especially about those who are absent.
Great thoughts and a pure heart, that is what we should ask from God.
Personality is everything in art and poetry.
The most happy man is he who knows how to bring into relation the end and beginning of his life.
One must ask children and birds how cherries and strawberries taste.
The people who are absent are the ideal; those who are present seem to be quite commonplace.
We will burn that bridge when we come to it.
We can’t form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us.
There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings.
