My definition of success is to live your life in a way that causes you to feel a ton of pleasure and very little pain - and because of your lifestyle, have the people around you feel a lot more pleasure than they do pain.
Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
I hope America can also be the cultural leader of the world, and use this frontier spirit to lead and show others that we need courage to go places where we have not gone before.
He who is unable to live in society, or who has no need because he is sufficient for himself, must be either a beast or a god.
Boyfriends have to understand me and my needs. They have to know what I want out of my life and about my strict regime. I go to bed at 10pm and not later. I separate my professional and private lives.
Who, except the gods, can live time through forever without any pain?
The human soul has still greater need of the ideal than of the real. It is by the real that we exist; it is by the ideal that we live.
Any idiot can face a crisis, it is this day-to-day living that wears you out.
If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India.
Not only do I have to live, right, I have to get some cash for my troubles - it's a scary thing, and people need to start to think about the messages that they send in the movies.
I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made.
I do not need the idea of God to explain the world I live in.
It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.
When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.
I've never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don't understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now.
The only history is a mere question of one's struggle inside oneself. But that is the joy of it. One need neither discover Americas nor conquer nations, and yet one has as great a work as Columbus or Alexander, to do.
I don't have people following me around, like bodyguards. I don't know how people live like that. Maybe the young movie stars have to live like that, I don't know. But it seems a little crazy to me. I don't think you need all that stuff.
Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering.

Thier works are done as an apology or extenuation of thier living in the world.-as invalids and the insane pay a high? board.? Thier virtues are penances.? I do not wish to expiate, but to live.? My life is for itself and not a spectacle.?I can not consent to pay for privilege where I have intrinsic right.
I am the family face; flesh perishes, I live on.
I'm less needy about needing to express myself through acting. I have many different lives outside of this that are extremely fulfilling.
No society has been able to abolish human sadness, no political system can deliver us from the pain of living, from our fear of death, our thirst for the absolute. It is the human condition that directs the social condition, not vice versa.
