1.Every day you live is a kind of triumph. This you should cling onto. You should make no effort to try and join society. Stay right way you are. Give your name and serial number, and wait for society to form itself around you. Because it most certanly will. Neither look forward where there is doubt, nor backward where there is regret. Look inward and ask not if there is anything outside that you want, that you have not yet unpacked.

2.If your happiness is entirely dependent on another's love, you will never truely happy. If your love is valuable to you, it is because you give it. You must be ready to expect nothing in return. Once you accept this, your heart will never be broken again

3.You must search inside yourself for what is unique you you,when you find it, polish it until it becomes your style.

4.Even a marriage to oneself can not last forever.

5.The more English you sound, the more likely you are to be believed.

8.Men get laid, but women get screwed.

9.The consuming desire of most human beings is deliberately to plant their whole life in the hands of some other person. I would describe this method of searching for happiness as immature. Development of character consists solely in moving toward self-sufficiency.

10.The trouble with children is that they're not returnable.

11.The very purpose of existence is to reconcile the glowing opinion we hold of ourselves with the appalling things that other people think about us.

12.The young always have the same problem - how to rebel and conform at the same time. They have now solved this by defying their parents and copying one another.

13.To know all is not to forgive all. It is to despise everybody.
