The more rapidly truth is spread among mankind the better it will be for them. Only let us be sure that it is the truth.
There are few things in which we deceive ourselves more than in the esteem we profess to entertain for our firends. It is little better than a piece of quackery. The truth is we think of them as we please that is as they please or displease us.

One must know oneself. If this does not serve to discover truth it at least serves as a rule of life and there is nothing better.
A harmful truth is better than a useful lie.
I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant.

You always want to go out there with the best book possible so I listen to what my editors say and even if they don't know how to fix it I always seem to find a way. 'Trust Your Eyes' is the best book I've written and I don't know if I can do any better.

Every hotel room every apartment we rent I am sage-ing. And I have crystals that I travel with. It just makes me feel better.
The more you travel the better you get at it. It sounds silly but with experience you learn how to pack the right way.

I really had too much stuff so I've learnt to be more economical.
