“Why, anybody can have common sense, provided that they have no imagination”

 

 “It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.”

 

 "What is a cynic?…A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing."

 

“The ages live in history through their anachronisms.”

 

 “I am not sorry for anything that has happened. It has taught me to know myself better.”

 

 “Surely Love is a wonderful thing. It is more precious than emeralds, and dearer than fine opals. Pearls and pomegranates cannot buy it, nor is it set forth in the market-place. It may not be purchased of the merchants, nor can it be weighed out in the balance for gold.”

 

 “no theory of life seemed to him to be of any importance compared with life itself.”
