All of us every single year, we're a different person. I don't think we're the same person all our lives.
The earth belongs to the living, not to the dead.
When Man evolved Pity, he did a queer thing - deprived himself of the power of living life as it is without wishing it to become something different.
Any relic of the dead is precious, if they were valued living.
I can't comment on any outside perception. I'm happy to come out and talk about movies that I've worked on in a setting like this. Otherwise, I have my own life that I live which is very different and private.
I'm less needy about needing to express myself through acting. I have many different lives outside of this that are extremely fulfilling.
Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.
The quality of life is so different in France. There is the possibility of living a simple life. I would never contemplate raising my daughter in LA. I would never raise any child there.
A word is dead when it is said, some say. I say it just begins to live that day.
Be crazy! But learn how to be crazy without being the center of attention. Be brave enough to live different.
I may neither choose who I would, nor refuse who I dislike; so is the will of a living daughter curbed by the will of a dead father.
Excess of grief for the dead is madness; for it is an injury to the living, and the dead know it not.
One of the most striking differences between a cat and a lie is that a cat has only nine lives.
I would vote for the man who's lived life, who's done different occupations, who's been out in the real world and struggled to make a living, struggled to raise a family, struggled with life as it exists. So I'd vote for experience, honest experience.
Those who educate children well are more to be honored than they who produce them; for these only gave them life, those the art of living well.
To the living we owe respect, but to the dead we owe only the truth.
Books are but waste paper unless we spend in action the wisdom we get from thought - asleep. When we are weary of the living, we may repair to the dead, who have nothing of peevishness, pride, or design in their conversation.
Mourn for me rather as living than as dead.
Let the tutor not merely require a verbal account of what the boy has been taught but the meaning and the substance of it:let him judge how the child has profited from it not from the evidence of his memory but from that of his life. Let him take what the boy has just learned and make him show him dozens of different aspects of it andthen apply it to just as many different subjects, in order to find out whether he has really grasped it and make it part of himself,judging the boy's progress by what Plato taught about education. Spewing up food exactly as you have swallowed it is evidence of a failureto digest and assimilate it; the stomach has not done its job if, during concoction, it fails to change the substance and the form of what it is given.
For us in Russia communism is a dead dog. For many people in the West, it is still a living lion.
It is in moments of illness that we are compelled to recognize that we live not alone but chained to a creature of a different kingdom, whole worlds apart, who has no knowledge of us and by whom it is impossible to make ourselves understood: our body.
Monuments are for the living, not the dead.
No architect troubled to design houses that suited people who were to live in them, because that would have meant building a whole range of different houses. It was far cheaper and, above all, timesaving to make them identical.

The longer you live and the more you learn, the more clearly you will feel the difference between the few men who are truly great and the mere virtuosi.
