"It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams."
"Age has no reality except in the physical world. The essence of a human being is resistant to the passage of time. Our inner lives are eternal, which is to say that our spirits remain as youthful and vigorous as when we were in full bloom. Think of love as a state of grace, not the means to anything, but the alpha and omega. An end in itself."
"The interpretation of our reality through patterns not our own, serves only to make us ever more unknown, ever less free, ever more solitary."
"He who awaits much can expect little."
"I would not have traded the delights of my suffering for anything in the world."
“No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.”
