As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.





We know accurately only when we know little; with knowledge, doubt increases.





The aim of living is Life itself.





It is not enough to take steps, which may someday lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.

Willing is not enough; we must do.
