I listened for the echo, and I heard only praise â€”
...one can speak with the utmost clearness, and yet not be heard by anyone.
The most serious parody I have ever heard was this: In the beginning was nonsense, and the nonsense was with God, and the nonsense was God.
What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: 'This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more' ... Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who sp
This tremendous event is still on its way, still wandering; it has not yet reached the ears of men. Lightning and thunder require time; the light on the stars requires time; deeds though done, still require time to be seen and heard. This deed is still more distant from them than the most distant st
Deeds need time, even after they are done, in order to be seen or heard.
Truth is a mobile army of metaphors, metonyms, anthropomorphisms, in short a sum of human relations which have been subjected to poetic and rhetorical intensification, translation and decoration [â€¦]; truths are illusions of which we have forgotten that they are illusions, metaphors which have beco
When Zarathustra was alone . . . he said to his heart: "Could it be possible! This old saint in the forest hath not yet heard of it, that God is dead!"
There is a moral obligation that those who have should give to those who don't.
Let me tell you something, Mister. If I had her money, I'd be richer than she is.' - Breakfast at Tiffany's
I don't bite you know ... unless it's called for,
Work as hard as you can, whatever you do, and try to spread generosity of spirit.
I don't want to be alone, I want to be left alone.
Can I have a silk nightgown with rosebuds on it?

This is what you do on your very first day in Paris. You get yourself, not a drizzle, but some honest-to-goodness rain, and you find yourself someone really nice and drive her through the Bois de Boulogne in a taxi. The rain's very important. That's when Paris smells its sweetest. It's the damp ches
Let's face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me. Audrey Hepbur
If I'm honest I have to tell you I still read fairy-tales and I like them best of all.
I never thought I'd land in pictures with a face like mine.
...walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!
Paris is always a good idea.
I believe in manicures.I believe in overdressing.I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipsitck.
You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.
I never think of myself as an icon. What is in other people's minds is not in my mind. I just do my thing.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
