Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.
I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.
Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it.
I have learned to seek my happiness by limiting my desires, rather than in attempting to satisfy them.
