Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
We are healed of a suffering only by expressing it to the full.
Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind.
Love is space and time measured by the heart.
Words do not change their meanings so drastically in the course of centuries as, in our minds, names do in the course of a year or two
Our intellect is not the most subtle, the most powerful, the most appropriate, instrument for revealing the truth. It is life that, little by little, example by example, permits us to see that what is most important to our heart, or to our mind, is learned not by reasoning but through other agencies. Then it is that the intellect, observing their superiority, abdicates its control to them upon reasoned grounds and agrees to become their collaborator and lackey.
