Only air and light and the love of friends! Let no man lose heart who still has these.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Love gives us in a moment what we can hardly attain by effort after years of toil.
It seems to never occur to fools that merit and good fortune are closely united.
Nothing is harder to bear than a succession of fair days.
Please send me your last pair of shoes, worn out with dancing as you mentioned in your letter, so that I might have something to press against my heart.
To create something you must be something.
