1 You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.
2 What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner.
3 On spirit: How beautiful what one does not understand can be!
4 On experience: One keeps forgetting old age up to the very brink of the grave.

8 On love: Nothing leads to love. It is love who throws himself across your path. And then he either blocks it forever or, if he abandons it, leaves it in rack and ruin.
