Man is like the foam of the sea, that floats upon the surface of the water. When the wind blows, it vanishes, as if it had never been. Thus are our lives blown away by Death.
Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
Money is like love; it kills slowly and painfully the one who withholds it, and enlivens the other who turns it on his fellow man.
Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.

Wisdom is not in words; Wisdom is meaning within words.
Wit is often a mask. If you tear it you will find either genius irritated or cleverness juggling.

A woman whom Providence has provided with beauty of spirit and body is a truth, at the same time both open and secret, which we can understand only by love, and touch only by virtue.
Women opened the windows of my eyes and the doors of my spirit. Had it not been for the woman-mother, the woman-sister, and the woman-friend, I would have been sleeping among those who seek the tranquility of the world with their snoring.
If your knowledge teaches you not to rise above human weakness and misery and lead your fellow man on the right path, you are indeed a man of little worth and will remain such till Judgment Day.
You can muffle the drum, and you can loosen the strings of the lyre, but who shall command the skylark not to sing?
