Remember that the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless; peacocks and lilies, for example.
That which is striking and beautiful is not always good, but that which is good is always beautiful.
~Ninon de L'Enclos
The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt.
The defination of a beautiful woman is one who loves me.
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we will find it not.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
My age is 39 plus tax.
Paradoxical as it may seem, to believe in youth is to look backwards;
to look forward we must believe in age.
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you will land among the stars.
The roots of true achievement lie in the will to become the best that you can become.
You can do everything in the world if you are prepared to take the consequences.
~W. Somerset Maugham
Adversity has the effect of eliciting talents, which in prosperous circumstances would have lain dormant.
The pine stays green in winter...
Wisdom in hardship.
Without a struggle, there can be no progress.
I'd like to go on being 35 for a long time.
Age has its compensation. It is less apt to be brow-beaten by descretion.
