Quotes

#Quote
1[on life and death] Life is my university, and I hope to graduate from it with some distinction.
2On spirit: Immortality is the passing of a soul through many lives of experiences, and such as are truly lived, used, and learned, helped on to the next, each growing richer, happier and higher, carrying with it only the real memories of what has gone before.
3On friendship: A faithful friend is a strong defense; And he that hath found hath found a treasure.
4I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.
5Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
6Don't let the sun go down upon your anger; forgive each other, help each other, and begin again tomorrow.
7Be comforted, dear soul! There is always light behind the clouds.
8If people really want to go, and really try all their lives, I think they will get in; for I don't believe there are any locks on that door, or any guards at the gate. I always imagine it is as it is in the picture, where the shining ones stretch out their hands to welcome poor Christian as he comes up from the river.
9Life is my college. May I graduate well, and earn some honors!
10Money is the root of all evil, and yet it is such a useful root that we cannot get on without it any more than we can without potatoes.
11My definition [of a philosopher] is of a man up in a balloon, with his family and friends holding the ropes which confine him to earth and trying to haul him down.
12It takes people a long time to learn the difference between talent and genius, especially ambitious young men and women.
