I say to the young: Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively.

Some suggestions for you :

You can not live at all if you do not learn to adapt yourself to your life as it happens to be.

No leader can be too far ahead of his followers.

Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.

There is not human being from whom we cannot learn something if we are interested enough to dig deep.

I know that we will be the sufferers if we let great wrongs occur without exerting ourselves to correct them.

None of us can afford to stop learning or to check our curiosity about new things, or to lose our humility in the face of new situations.

Will people ever be wise enough to refuse to follow bad leaders or to take away the freedom of other people?

A great deal of fear is a result of just not knowing. We do not know what is involved in a new situation. We do not know whether we can deal with it. The sooner we learn what it entails, the sooner we can dissolve our fear.

Anxiety, Kierkegaard said, is the dizziness of freedom.

When you adopt the standards and the values of someone else … you surrender your own integrity. You become, to the extent of your surrender, less of a human being.

One thing life has taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you. When you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.

To be a citizen in a democracy, a human being must be given a healthy start.

Autobiographies are only useful as the lives you read about and analyze may suggest to you something that you may find useful in your own journey through life.
