Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.
If a man cannot forget, he will never amount to much.
Adversity draws men together and produces beauty and harmony in life's relationships, just as the cold of winter produces ice-flowers on the window-panes, which vanish with the warmth.
There is nothing with which every man is so afraid as getting to know how enormously much he is capable of doing and becoming.
A man who as a physical being is always turned toward the outside, thinking that his happiness lies outside him, finally turns inward and discovers that the source is within him.
