The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.
The important work of moving the world forward does not wait to be done by perfect men.
Pictures must not be too picturesque.
Youth is the best time to be rich, and the best time to be poor.
The highest art is always the most religious, and the greatest artist is always a devout person.
If I get married, I want to be very married.
Someday I want to have children and give them all the love I never had.
Those that despise people will never get the best out of others and themselves.
The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.
Imagination is the key to my lyrics. The rest is painted with a little science fiction.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.
A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession.
Love and friendship exclude each other.
Marriage, it seems, confines every man to his proper rank.
Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters.
I bear a charmed life.
One always has time enough, if one will apply it well.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
The best way to keep one's word is not to give it.
