Writing is my love. If you love something, you find a lot of time. I write for two hours a day, usually starting at midnight; at times, I start at 11.
If the reason people invest is to make money, then in seeking advice they are asking others to tell them how to make money. That idea has some element of naïveté.
Friendship often ends in love, but love in friendship – never.
Rebellion cannot exist without a strange form of love.
It is necessary to fall in love… if only to provide an alibi for all the random despair you are going to feel anyway.
One always has exaggerated ideas about what one doesn’t know.
I would like to be able to breathe— to be able to love her by memory or fidelity. But my heart aches. I love you continuously, intensely.
I should like to be able to love my country and still love justice.
I have no idea what’s awaiting me, or what will happen when this all ends. For the moment I know this: there are sick people and they need curing.

Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow, Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead, Walk beside me… just be my friend.
Why should it be essential to love rarely in order to love much?
When you find out that there was never anything in the dark side to be afraid of … Nothing is left but to love.
The difficulty for most of us in the modern world is that the old-fashioned idea of God has become incredible or implausible.
Buddhism has in it no idea of there being a moral law laid down by some kind of cosmic lawgiver.
The religious idea of God cannot do full duty for the metaphysical infinity.
Never pretend to a love which you do not actually feel, for love is not ours to command.
The world is filled with love-play, from animal lust to sublime compassion.
My ideas come when I least expect it, so I’ve always got to have a studio nearby or close by somewhere.
Gravity. It’s not just a good idea; it’s the law!
