The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person.

In Hell, it`s our attachments to a fixed identity that torture us.

In Hell you`d be foolish to count on people displaying high standards of honesty. The same goes for earth.

It simply makes sense that I should miss my parents more than they miss me, especially when you consider that they only loved me for thirteen years while I loved them for my entire life.

The only thing I know is everything you love will die. The first time you meet someone special, you can count on them one day being dead and in the ground.

Life`s greatest comfort is being able to look over your shoulder and see people worse off, waiting in line behind you.

If I could wake up in a different place, at a different time, could I wake up as a different person?

Reality means you live until you die. [...] The real truth is nobody wants reality.

It`s only after you`ve lost everything, [...] that you`re free to do anything.

All human beings search for either reasons to be good, or excuses to be bad.

That`s the American Dream: to make your life into something you can sell.

You`re a different human being to everybody you meet.

In my opinion, those who remember the past are paralyzed by it.

In truth, the degree of anyone`s success depends on how often they can say the word yes and hear the word no.

Anything you can acquire, [...] is only another thing you`ll lose.
