“If you’ve never eaten while crying you don’t know what life tastes like.”

“To think is easy. To act is hard. But the hardest thing in the world is to act in accordance with your thinking.” 

“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.”

“You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.” 

“If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.” 

“A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart.”
