Some suggestions for you :

You are good when you are fully awake in your speech.

History does not repeat itself except in the minds of those who do not know history.

For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun? And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Advance, and never halt, for advancing is perfection. Advance and do not fear the thorns in the path, for they draw only corrupt blood.

It shall not be a glistening film that covers a wound, but an eyelid that guards the eye.

The truly great man is he who would master no one, and who would be mastered by none.

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.

He who has not looked on Sorrow will never see Joy.

If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.

Art thou like me, child of my darkest heart? And dost thou think my untamed thoughts and speak my vast language?

I have a yearning for my beautiful country, and I love its people because of their misery. But if my people rose, stimulated by plunder and motivated by what they call "patriotic spirit" to murder, and invaded my neighbour's country, then upon the committing of any human atrocity I would hate my people and my country.

As the strings of a lute are apart though they quiver the same music.

Yea, I shall return with the tide.

But tell me, who is he that can offend the spirit? Shall the nightingale offend the stillness of the night, or the firefly the stars?
