I am a humanist, which means, in part, that I have tried to behave decently without any expectation of rewards or punishments after I`m dead.

Maturity (...) is a bitter disappointment for which no remedy exists, unless laughter can be said to remedy anything.

There is love enough in this world for everybody, if people will just look.

A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.

Everything that ever has been always will be, and everything that ever will be always has been.

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

If you can do no good, at least do no harm.

Make love when you can. It`s good for you.

No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful.

If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph:
The Only Proff he needed
for the existence of God
was music
