"Life is to be lived, not controlled, and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat."
"There are two ways to slide easily through life: to believe everything or to doubt everything; both ways save us from thinking."
"Life can be found only in the present moment. The past is gone, the future is not yet here, and if we do not go back to ourselves in the present moment, we cannot be in touch with life."
"Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower."
"The great business of life is to be, to do, to do without, and to depart."
