Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace.


Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.


Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.


When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes.


Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
