You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view. Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.
You have to have one person in your life that you know would never do anything to steer you wrong. They may disagree with you. They could even break your heart, from time to time. But you have to have one person, at least, who you know will always tell you the truth.
There are some persons in this world, who, unable to give better proof of being wise, take a strange delight in showing what they think they have sagaciously read in mankind by uncharitable suspicions of them.
It’s never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn’t hurt you.
Every person has the power to change their fate if they are brave enough to fight for what they desire more than anything.
Each person whoever was or is or will be has a song. It isn’t a song that anybody else wrote. It has its own melody, it has its own words. Very few people get to sing their own song. Most of us fear that we cannot do it justice with our voices, or that our words are too foolish or too honest, or too odd. So people live their songs instead.
You can love a person dear to you with a human love, but an enemy can only be loved with divine love.[Любить человека дорогого можно человеческою любовью; но только врага можно любить любовью божескою.]
