Youth is wasted on the young. to read a writer, for me, is not merely to get an idea of what he says, but to go off with him and travel in his company. the only thing worth saying is what you really feel. in our struggle for freedom, truth is the only weapon we possess. this is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. question with boldness even the existence of a god; because, if there is one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blind-folded fear. when you get into a tight place and it seems you can't go on, hold on, for that's just the place and the time that the tide will turn. it takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are. there is something very wonderful in music. words are wonderful enough; but music is even more wonderful. it speaks not to our thoughts as words do; it speaks straight to our hearts and spirits, to the very core and root of our souls. music soothes us, stirs us up; it puts noble feelings in us; it melts us to tears; we know not how - it is a language by itself, just as perfect, in its way, as speech, as words. he who has a 'why' to live can bear almost any 'how'. footfalls echo in the memory / down the passage we did not take / towards the door we never opened / into the rose garden there is no greater power on earth or in heaven than pure love. the greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return. the minute i heard my first love story / i started looking for you, not knowing / how blind that was. / lovers don't finally meet somewhere. / they're in each other all along. we must not allow other people's limited perceptions to define us. the nature of this flower is to bloom. we are trees glued to the same forest. and the mississippi's mighty / but it starts in minnesota / at a place that you could walk across / with five steps down / and i guess that's how you started / like a pinprick to my heart / but at this point you rush right through me / and i start to drown what i want: humanity, humor, depth. if you press me to say why i loved him, i can say no more than because he was he, and i was i. insist upon yourself. be original. it is in the compelling zest of high adventure and of victory, and in creative action, that man finds his supreme joys. we are not empty-headed celebrities..
