"Life achieves its summit when it does to the uttermost that which it was equipped to do."
"Age is never so old as youth would measure it."
"Don't loaf and invite inspiration; light out after it with a club, and if you don't get it you will nonetheless get something that looks remarkably like it."
"Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, playing a poor hand well."
"The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."
