"The permanent temptation of life is to confuse dreams with reality. The permanent defeat of life comes when dreams are surrendered to reality."

"Burn pot not people."

"The blunders of youth are preferable to the successes of old age." (Disraeli)

"Soul is the ability to manipulate adversity so that it becomes tolerable."
