To feel the love of people whom we love is a fire that feeds our life.[Conocer el amor de los que amamos, es el fuego que alimenta la vida.]
To do something that you feel in your heart that’s great, you need to make a lot of mistakes. Anything that’s successful is a series of mistakes.
I have the true feeling of myself only when I am unbearably unhappy.[Das wahre Gefühl meiner selbst nur, wenn ich unerträglich unglücklich bin.]
I did my best, it wasn’t much, I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch. I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you. And even though it all went wrong, I’ll stand before the Lord of Song, with nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.
Where there is most feeling, there is the greatest martyrdom – a great martyr.[Dov’è piv sentimento, lì è piv martirio; gran martire.]
We live entirely in the dressing-room now, which I like very much; I always feel so much more elegant in it than in the parlor.
There are some people who come to me for some illumination on their problems. I guess they feel I’m writing about some of the things they themselves are going through. But I don’t usually have much help to give – there isn’t much you can say to someone in the midst of their own crises.
