On Love:

Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.

Oh, love is real enough; you will find it someday, but it has one archenemy – and that is life.

On Life:

Life has a way of setting things in order and leaving them be. Very tidy, is life.

Life is a wonderful thing to talk about, or to read about in history books – but it is terrible when one has to live it.

Life is very nice, but it lacks form. It’s the aim of art to give it some.

Life is a child playing round your feet, a tool you hold firmly in your grip, a bench you sit down upon in the evening, in your garden.

On God:

Every man thinks god is on his side.

God is on everyone’s side… and in the last analysis, he is on the side with plenty of money and large armies.

Every man thinks God is on his side. The rich and powerful know he is.
