A life that is burdened with expectations is a heavy life. Its fruit is sorrow and disappointment .
"Happiness, not in another place but in this place… not for another hour, but this hour" - Walt Whitman
We must have one love, one great love in our life, since it gives us an alibi for all the moments when we are filled with despair.
Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world
Face the facts of being what you are, for that is what changes what you are.
Learn to love solitude, to be more alone with yourselves. The tragedy of today’s young people is that they try to unite on the basis of carrying out noisy and aggressive actions so as not to feel lonely, and this is a sad thing. The individual must learn from childhood to be on his own, for this doesn’t mean to be lonely: it means to not get bored with oneself, because a person who finds himself bored when he is alone, it seems to me, is a person in danger.
