"People grow through experience if they meet life honestly and courageously. This is how character is built."

"Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art."

"If someone betrays you once, it’s their fault; if they betray you twice, it’s your fault."


"Life was meant to be lived, and curiosity must be kept alive.
One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life."


"Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway.
You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't."
