"Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish. And yet it also pleases me and seems right that what is of value and wisdom to one man seems nonsense to another."
"I have always lived in a world in which I’m just a spot in history. My life is not the important point. I’m just part of the continuum, and that continuum, to me, is a marvelous thing. The history of life, and the history of the planet, should go on and on and on and on. I cannot conceive of anything in the universe that has more meaning than that."
"It is best to love wisely, no doubt; but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all."
