Sleep is good, death is better; but of course, the best thing would to have never been born at all.
Death is easier than a wretched life; and better never to have born than to live and fare badly.
It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.

Often, I went in love with some friends in school. And, no, I suffered. Only later, things went better.
I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
I was born when you kissed me. I died when you left me. I lived a few weeks while you loved me.

The course of true love never did run smooth.
I love the look of planes and the idea of how a plane flies. The more I learn about it the better I feel; while I still may not like it, I have a sense of what is really happening.
I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake, you know?
I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
For what is love itself, for the one we love best? An enfolding of immeasurable cares which yet are better than any joys outside our love.
If you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work.
