Experience teaches only the teachable.
Experiences are savings which a miser puts aside. Wisdom is an inheritance which a wastrel cannot exhaust.
The main thing experience has taught me is that one has to sort of hone their relationship to time, you know.
The only source of knowledge is experience.
Life is like playing a violin solo in public and learning the instrument as one goes on.
Dream in a pragmatic way.
Dream manfully and nobly, and thy dreams shall be prophets.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
I close my eyes, then I drift away, into the magic night I softly say. A silent prayer, like dreamers do, then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.
I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.
It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.
Rich men’s sons are seldom rich men’s fathers.
So my father was a person who never lied to me. If I had a question, he answered it. I knew a lot of things at a young age because I was intrigued.
Sons have always a rebellious wish to be disillusioned by that which charmed their fathers.
That is the thankless position of the father in the family – the provider for all, and the enemy of all.
The best money advice ever given me was from my father. When I was a little girl, he told me, ‘Don’t spend anything unless you have to.’
Beauty is worse than wine, it intoxicates both the holder and beholder.
Beauty itself is but the sensible image of the Infinite.
Beauty saves. Beauty heals. Beauty motivates. Beauty unites. Beauty returns us to our origins, and here lies the ultimate act of saving, of healing, of overcoming dualism.
Personal beauty is a greater recommendation than any letter of reference.
Heat cannot be separated from fire, or beauty from The Eternal.
To the lover of wilderness, Alaska is one of the most wonderful countries in the world.
To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.
Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.
Travel becomes a strategy for accumulating photographs.
Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection.
