I didn't think about whether I was writing poems. I was thinking. And the more I was thinking, the more there was I didn't understand

Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep and you weep alone For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own

The saddest failures in life are those that come from not putting forth the power and will to succeed

Melancholy is the pleasure of being sad

For of all sad words of tongue or pen, The saddest are these 'It might have been

People love the beads. Everyone really loves to catch them

The man who has never made a fool of himself in love will never be wise in love

Call no man foe but never love a stranger

People happy in love have an air of intensity
