Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.

Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?

Live to the point of tears.

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
