Those who use foul language on social networks (such as Twitter) are sending an expensive signal that they are free—and, ironically, competent. You don’t signal competence if you don’t take risks for it—there are few such low-risk strategies. So cursing today is a status symbol, just as oligarchs in Moscow wear blue jeans at special events to signal their power

We do not love people so much for the good they have done us, as for the good we do them.

Happiness consists in frequent repetition of pleasure.

I wish you endless dreams and the furious desire to make some of them come true.

I wish you to love what you need to love and forget what you need to forget.

I wish you passions, I wish you silences. I wish you bird songs on waking up and children's laughter.

I wish you to respect the differences of others, because the merit and value of each one is often to be discovered. I wish you to resist the bogging down, the indifference and the negative virtues of our times.

Finally, I wish you never to give up research, adventure, life, love, because life is a magnificent adventure and no reasonable person should give it up without fighting a hard battle.

Above all, I wish you to be you, proud and happy, because happiness is our true destiny.

Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
