- Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.
- I love you the more in that I believe you had liked me for my own sake and for nothing else.
- Love is not written on paper, for paper can be erased. Nor is it etched on stone, for stone can be broken. But it is inscribed on a heart and there it shall remain forever.
- When I saw you, I was afraid to meet you… When I met you, I was afraid to kiss you… When I kissed you, I was afraid to love you… Now that I love you, I’m afraid to lose you.
- I compare human life to a large mansion of many apartments, two of which I can only describe, the doors of the rest being as yet shut upon me.
- If you have only one smile in you give it to the people you love.
- In a drear-nighted December, Too happy, happy tree, Thy branches ne’er remember, Their green felicity.
- Beauty is truth, truth beauty – that is all, Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
- The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were.
- There is nothing stable in the world; uproar’s your only music.
- The only means of strengthening one’s intellect is to make up one’s mindabout nothing — to let the mind be a thoroughfare for all thoughts.
