We are all born mad. Some remain so.

Dance first. Think later. It's the natural order.

The tears of the world are a constant quantity. For each one who begins to weep somewhere else another stops. The same is true of the laugh.

Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

My mistakes are my life


“Let's go." "We can't." "Why not?" "We're waiting for Godot.”

Perhaps my best years are gone. When there was a chance of happiness. But I wouldn't want them back. Not with the fire in me now. No, I wouldn't want them back.

🧡💚@Meltem once said...

"Every morning I receive the invitation...
To live a life of engagement,
of whimsey, work, adventure, and love.
It doesn't arrive in an envelope...
It is ushered in by the rising sun,
a bird singing a new day's song,
The invitation to engage,
to fully participate,
to dare to live every aspect
of this amazing life.
And, every morning,
with gratitude,
I accept."
💚🧡

“Over the entrance to Carl Jung’s home in Switzerland is a Latin inscription:

Vocatus atque non vocatus, Deus aderit

‘Invoked or not invoked, God is present.’ ”

Anatole France born François-Anatole Thibault, (16 April 1844 – 12 October 1924) was a French poet, journalist, and novelist with several best-sellers. Ironic and skeptical, he was considered in his day the ideal French man of letters. He was a member of the Académie française, and won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his brilliant literary achievements, characterized as they are by a nobility of style, a profound human sympathy, grace, and a true Gallic temperament".
France is also widely believed to be the model for narrator Marcel's literary idol Bergotte in Marcel Proust's In Search of Lost Time.

“Never lend books, for no one ever returns them; the only books I have in my library are books that other folks have lent me.”

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.”

“To accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan but also believe.
(From an introductory speech at a session of the Académie Française, December 24, 1896)”

“We have never heard the devil's side of the story, God wrote all the book.”

“To know is nothing at all; to imagine is everything.”

“To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act.”

“If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living.”

“If the path is beautiful, let us not ask where it leads.”

“In art as in love, instinct is enough. ”

“If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing.”

“It is the certainty that they possess the truth that makes men cruel.”

“The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of the mind for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.”

“The law, in its majestic equality, forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal their bread.”

“Of all sexual aberrations, chastity is the strangest.”

“Stupidity is far more dangerous than evil, for evil takes a break from time to time, stupidity does not.”

"When age cools the blood and pleasures are a thing of the past, the most cherished memory is still the last, and our sweetest evocation, that of the first kiss."
