  • If one good thing went away with youththe other ages of human life would have seemed so intolerable that every individual would have cut his throat in the thirty-second year. Many squabbles float in the noisy waves of youth and swim away with them; but all the same, there is nothing better than these waves.
  • People, spoiled in childhood, retain a special imprint for the rest of their lives.
  • Argue with a man smarter than you: He will defeat you, but from your very defeat you can gain for yourself. Argue with a man of equal mind: for whomever victory remains, at least you will enjoy the fight. Argue with the weakest person: argue not from the desire to win, but you can be useful to him. Argue even with a fool! No fame or benefit you will not get ... But why sometimes do not have fun
  • Exceptions, you know, only confirm the rule.
  • It [happiness] is like health: when you do not notice it, it means it exists.
  • Honesty gave him the right to be ruthless and not to do unqualified good; and he was ruthless - and did not do good ... because good by decree - not good.
  • Love, I thought, is stronger than death and the fear of death. Only it, only love keeps and moves life.
  • Have you noticed that - on an oak tree - but a strong oak treetree - the old leaves only fall away when the young begin to make their way? Exactly the same happens with old love in a strong heart: it is already extinct, but still holds; only another, a new love can survive it.
  • Our life does not depend on us; but we all have one anchor, from which, if you do not want to, you will never fail: the sense of duty.
  • Apparently, our shortcomings grow on the same soil with our virtues, and it is difficult to wrest one by sparing the others.
  • Nature is not a temple, but a workshop, and the person in it is an employee.
  • The ancient Greeks did not for nothing say that the last and highest gift of the gods to man is a sense of proportion.
  • Whatever a person prays, he prays for a miracle. Every prayer is reduced to the following: "Great God, do that twice two - there were not four!". But can even a personal, living, figurative god do that twice two - there were not four?
  • Marriage, based on mutual inclinations and on the understanding, is one of the greatest blessings of human life.
  • All love is happy, as is the miserable, real disaster, when you give it all.
  • Love and Hunger - their goal is one: it is necessary that life does not stop, own and alien - all the same, universal life. (A poem in the prose "Two brothers").
  • Do you like a woman - try to make sense; but it is impossible - well, do not, turn your back - the light did not come together with a wedge.
  • If you wait for a minute, when everything is decidedly everything will be ready - you will never have to start.
  • Do you want to be happy? Learn to suffer first.
  • There is nothing more painful than the consciousness of the stupidity just made.
  • Anyone who aspires to a lofty goal should no longer think of himself.
