  2. A book is never a masterpiece: it becomes one. Genius is the talent of a dead man.

    Ignore those that make you fearful and sad, that degrade you back towards disease and death.

  4. Life isn’t fair, it’s just fairer than death, that’s all.

  5. I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.

    I don’t want to have lived in vain like most people. I want to be useful or bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death!

  7. In Spain the dead are more alive than the dead of any other country in the world.

  8. To generalize about war is like generalizing about peace. Almost everything is true. Almost nothing is true.

    At its core, perhaps, war is just another name for death, and yet any soldier will tell you, if he tells the truth, that proximity to death brings with it a corresponding proximity to life.

  9. You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.

  10. I don’t think you ran away because you couldn’t handle death. I think it’s because you couldn’t handle feelings. You’re not like that anymore. You’re strong. You carry people. You carry me. You’re becoming a man in a way that your father never was.
