One can survive anything these days, except death, and live down anything except a good reputation.
There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it.
It is neccessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation. It is better be alone than in bad company.
It is possible to provide security against other ills, but as far as death is concerned, we men live in a city without walls.
There's good and bad in everybody. I wasn't looking for the good, or looking for the bad. This is a man who signed his pact with the devil 20 years ago, and he's learned to live with it. He's tried to protect his family from it.
What a miserable thing life is: you're living in clover, only the clover isn't good enough.
There are eight girls in the house in which I am living, and practically all of them are good looking. You can realize that I am kept busy.

That every man after the life in the world lives to eternity, is evident from this, that man is then spiritual, and no longer natural, and that the spiritual man, separated from the natural, remains such as he is to eternity, for man's state cannot be changed after death.
The good ideas will survive.
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.
Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
People do not live nowadays. They get about 10% out of life.
Life has no meaning unless one lives it with a will, at least to the limit of one's will. Virtue, good, evil are nothing but words, unless one takes them apart in order to build something with them; they do not win their true meaning until one knows how to apply them.
The quality of the Lord's church on earth, cannot be seen by any man, so long as he lives in the world, still less how the church in process of time has turned aside from good to evil.

The good and the wise lead quiet lives.
I can live for two months on a good compliment.
Giving is good, but taking is bad and brings death.
If you have a particular faith or religion, that is good. But you can survive without it.
