My wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in a corner of nature.
I wish my school days could have dragged on a little longer, or that I could go back and do it later in life.
Nothing fixes a thing so intensely in the memory as the wish to forget it.
If I wish to compose or write or pray or preach well, I must be angry. Then all the blood in my veins is stirred, and my understanding is sharpened.
Face reality as it is, not as it was or as you wish it to be.
Treat others as you wish to be treated. Don't just be nice, but be kind to other people. That can be so rewarding.
Life is too short to be scared and not take risks. I'd rather be the person that's like, 'I messed up,' than, 'I wish I did that.'
I don't regret what I've been through. I've had ups and downs, super highs and some really low lows. I've been so blessed that I could never say, 'I wish this didn't happen.' It's part of who I am. There's nothing in my life that's so ugh.
Somewhere out in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the president's spouse. I wish him well!
Be as you wish to seem.

To die,so young to die.No, no, not I,I love the warm sunny skies,light, song, shining eyes,I want no war, no battle cry,No, no, not I.
It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are still alive. There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good, and we must hunger for them.
So far as I can see, all political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.
Industry need not wish.
Mortals always want something more- they wish for money, but what they're really after is to be carefree. Power when what they really want is control. Beauty when they want love. Sometimes they know it, sometimes they don't
The family, that dear octopus from whose tentacles we never quite escape, nor in our innermost hearts never quite wish to.
If a man wishes to truly not be written about, he would do well not to write letters to 18-year-old girls, inviting them into his life.
