I do not want to be admired. I want to give, to be given, and solitude in which to unfold my possessions.

The Waves
Distance is a great promoter of admiration!
The only things one can admire at length are those one admires without knowing why
Tell me who admires and loves you, and I will tell you who you are
Admiration is the basis of ignorance
Admiration is our polite recognition of another's resemblance to ourselves
You always admire what you really don't understand
There is an admiration which is the daughter of knowledge
That which astonishes, astonishes once; but whatever is admirable becomes more and more admired
Admiration is the daughter of ignorance

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
