When one is in love, one always begins by deceiving one's self, and one always ends by deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.
When man acts he is a puppet. When he describes he is a poet.
When they make up their ledger, they balance stupidity by wealth, and vice by hypocrisy.
When good Americans die, they go to Paris.
When your youth goes, your beauty will go with it, and then you will suddenly discover that there are no triumphs left for you, or have to content yourself with those mean triumphs that the memory of your past will make more bitter than defeats.
When you are not on your pedestal you are not interesting.
When poverty creeps in at the door, love flies through the window.
When it rains look for rainbows, when it's dark look for stars.
