"I wonder how many people I've looked at all my life and never seen. It's scary to think about.
Point of reference again.When two people meet, each one is changed by the other so you've got two new people."

No man really knows about other human beings. The best he can do is to suppose that they are like himself.

People who are most afraid of their dreams convince themselves they don't dream at all.

What a frightening thing is the human, a mass of gauges and dials and registers, and we can only read a few and those perhaps not accurately.

You know most people live ninety per cent in the past, seven per cent in the present, and that only leaves them three per cent for the future.

For the most part people are not curious except about themselves

Intention, good or bad, is not enough.

A day, a livelong day, is not one thing but many.
