There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way, and not to give others absurd maddening claims upon it.
If we discovered that we had only five minutes left to say all that we wanted to say, every telephone booth would be occupied by people calling other people to stammer that they loved them.
There is only one success–to be able to spend your own life in your own way.
Cherish all your happy moments; they make a fine cushion for old age.
