An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.
Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters.
No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come.
When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes
The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that one is loved; loved for oneself, or better yet, loved despite oneself.
Music expresses that which can not be said and on which it is impossible to be silent

The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories that it has come to be disbelieved. Few people daresay nowadays that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at eachother. Yet that is the way love begins, and only that way. The rest is only the rest, and comes afterwards. Nothing is more real than the great shocks that two souls give each other in exchanging this spark.
The first symptom of love in a young man is shyness; the first symptom in a woman, it's boldness.
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
