My soul has gained the freedom of the night.
Perfect moments don't turn into half-hours.
Death is part of this life and not of the next.
To regret your sins of commission as much as your sins of omission is to prove yourself a most unworthy sinner.
Our losses should frequently be put on the credit side.
We are bound to those we love by their imperfections their perfections help us to explain them to others.
We learn nothing by being right.
The image of ourselves in the minds of others is the picture of a stranger we shall never see.
Each play worth seeing should be watched a second time on the faces of the audience.
It is easier to be generous than to be just.
What we buy belongs to us only when the price is forgotten.
To be on a pedestal is to be in a corner.
Those we love are entitled to resent the allowances we make for them.
Life more often teaches us how to perfect our weaknesses than how to develop our strengths.
Blessed are those who give without remembering and take without forgetting.
