To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.
Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
Ranier Maria Rilke
If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches.
Don’t tell a woman she’s pretty; tell her there’s no other woman like her, and all roads will open to you.
