  • A man's true character comes out when he's drunk.

  • Life could be wonderful if people would leave you alone.

  • Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people.

  • The saddest thing I can imagine is to get used to luxury.

  • This is a ruthless world and one must be ruthless to cope with it.

  • Man as an individual is a genius. But men in the mass form the headless monster, a great, brutish idiot that goes where prodded.

  • I went into the business for the money, and the art grew out of it. If people are disillusioned by that remark, I can't help it. It's the truth.
