I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot!
We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.
Sweet it is, when on the high seas the winds are lashing the waters, to gaze from the land on another's struggles.
Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.
Before I was humiliated I was like a stone that lies in deep mud, and he who is mighty came and in his compassion raised me up and exalted me very high and placed me on the top of the wall.
But for me, it was a code I myself had invented! Yet I could not read it.
I believe that man will not merely endure. He will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance.
It's time we stopped ignoring the environment. Let's not let another election go by without making this a high priority.
It was morning; through the high window I saw the pure, bright blue of the sky as it hovered cheerfully over the long roofs of the neighboring houses. It too seemed full of joy, as if it had special plans, and had put on its finest clothes for the occasion.
Fishes live in the sea, as men do on land: the great ones eat up the little ones.
I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes.
I always wanted to have my own album released before I graduated from high school.
A book must be the ax for the frozen sea within us.
There is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one's own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels for someone, for someone, pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echos.
God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephantand the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.
What we all have in common is an appreciation of kindness and compassion; all the religions have this. We all lean towards love.
In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high.
And as I've gotten older, I've had more of a tendency to look for people who live by kindness, tolerance, compassion, a gentler way of looking at things.
No aquarium, no tank in a marine land, however spacious it may be, can begin to duplicate the conditions of the sea. And no dolphin who inhabits one of those aquariums or one of those marine lands can be considered normal.
I hate that which we have decided to call realism, even though I have been made one of its high priests.
Nobody was ever meant, To remember or invent, What he did with every cent.
Ah, women. They make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.
There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.
You must take the risk to disclose yourself in order to become more real, more human. And even if the price is high.
I don't get high, but sometimes I wish I did. That way, when I messed up in life I would have an excuse. But right now there's no rehab for stupidity.
