And you told me, “Go to hell.”
Well, let me tell you, beautiful,
I’ve been there
Believe me when I say I’m not afraid
Of destruction, sorrow, fear or regret.

He makes iron, and iron has made him. His hands are not like mine - nor like those of anyone else who has spent a cosseted life shuffling paper around a succession of desks. His look like men’s hands used to, fingers and joints enlarged and toughened by proper work. They also look clever somehow - capable and sure.

But real adventures, I reflected, do not happen to people who remain at home: they must be sought abroad.

You read something which you thought only happened to you, and you discover that it happened 100 years ago to Dostoyevsky. This is a very great liberation for the suffering, struggling person, who always thinks that he is alone. This is why art is important. Art would not be important if life were not important, and life is important.

And just try to remember a few rules of life. Don’t say what you’re thinking, and don’t be too quick to act on what you think. Be friendly to people but don’t overdo it. Once you’ve tested out your friends and found them trustworthy, hold onto them. But don’t waste your time shaking hands with every new guy you meet. Don’t be quick to pick a fight, but once you’re in one, hold your own. Listen to many people, but talk to few. Hear everyone’s opinion, but reserve your judgment. […] And, above all, be true to yourself. Then you won’t be false to anybody else.

Polonius, Act I, Scene III
