Youth is not a question of years: one is young or old from birth.
Barney quotes
We know all their gods; they ignore ours. What they call our sins are our gods, and what they call their gods, we name otherwise.
If we keep an open mind, too much is likely to fall into it.

Time engraves our faces with all the tears we have not shed.
Barney Natalie Clifford
Why grab possessions like thieves, or divide them like socialists when you can ignore them like wise men?
The advantage of love at first sight is that it delays a second sight.
