By Alfred Nobel
Having a rough morning? Feel your heart. That’s your purpose of being alive.
The poetry of earth is never dead.
Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny.
My happiness is not the means to any end. It is the end. It is its own goal. It is its own purpose.
The purpose of morality is to teach you, not to suffer and die, but to enjoy yourself and live.
Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values.
We write our names in the sand: and then the waves roll in and wash them away.
Depression is being colorblind and constantly told how colorful the world is.
To a poet every curve of her was a well place word.
The right poem finds us exactly when it needs to.
To a poet, the broken flowers bloom the brightest.
Put a girl in moonlight and tell only truths and every man becomes a poet.
Poetry is composing, you are writing words to move the world like music.
Poetry, is a life long war waged against ineffable beauty.
Poets are fools until they are kings.
One day I’ll paint the perfect sunset – if I can only find the words.
Poets are souls at war with words from battles waged within.
Ours is a multi-religious country, a multi-lingual country; we have many different modes of worship. We believe in peaceful and harmonious co-existence.
One day you may become an ex-prime minister, but you will never become an ex-poet!
My poet’s heart gives me strength to face political problems, particularly those which have a bearing on my conscience.
