If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered.
If suffering brings wisdom, I would wish to be less wise.
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.
It is not in giving life but in risking life that man is raised above the animal; that is why superiority has been accorded in humanity not to the sex that brings forth but to that which kills.
All things will be produced in superior quantity and quality, and with greater ease, when each man works at a single occupation, in accordance with his natural gifts, and at the right moment, without meddling with anything else.
I am aware that a philosopher's ideas are not subject to the judgment of ordinary persons, because it is his endeavour to seek the truth in all things, to the extent permitted to human reason by God.
It is an ill thing to be the first to bring news of ill.
You're always in a different headspace when you make each record, so hopefully they're all different. You just pick up things that you wish you hadn't done on the first one.
The secret of life is to have a task, something you devote your entire life to, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for the rest of your life. And the most important thing is, it must be something you cannot possibly do.

I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.
I photograph the things that I do not wish to paint, the things which already have an existence.
The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.
It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are thoroughly alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger after them.
Once we have a war there is only one thing to do. It must be won. For defeat brings worse things than any that can ever happen in war.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.
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.
I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know.
I love to do the things the censors won't pass.
History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time; it illumines reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life, and brings us tidings of antiquity.
Whenever a mind is simple and receives a divine wisdom, old things pass away, - means, teachers, texts, temples fall;it lives now, and absorbs past and future into the present hour.? All things are made sacred by relation to it,-one as much as another.?All things are disolved to ther center by thier cause.
I mean, the Constitution of this country was written 200 years ago. The house I was living in in Madrid is 350 years old! America is still a project, and you guys are working on it and bringing new things to it every day. That is beautiful to watch.
