A man is not old as long as he is seeking something.

I think I am one of those who can manage not to take on a completely different appearance under their own glance.
Think? Why think! We have computers to do that for us.
To reflect is to disturb one's thoughts.

Beauty in art is often nothing but ugliness subdued.
The obligation to endure gives us the right to know.
Falsity cannot keep an idea from being beautiful; there are certain errors of such ingenuity that one could regret their not ranking among the achievements of the human.
Certain brief sentences are peerless in their ability to give one the feeling that nothing remains to be said.

Take heed of critics even when they are not fair; resist them even when they are.
Kill one man and you are a murderer. Kill millions and you are a conqueror. Kill everyone and you are God.
