Put there a Spark

I cling to my imperfection, as the very essence of my being.

To accomplish great things one must not only act but also dream, not only dream but also believe.

Do not try to satisfy your vanity by teaching a great many things.  Awaken people's curiosity.  It is enough to open minds; do not overload them.  Put there just a spark.  If there is some good inflammable stuff, it will catch fire.

The Truth is that life is delicious, horrible, charming, frightful, sweet, bitter and that is everything.

I prefer the errors of enthusiasm to the indifference of wisdom.

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
