If you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there.

It is one of the great secrets of life that those things which are most worth doing, we do for others.

Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle.

You could not see a cloud, because / No cloud was in the sky: / No birds were flying overhead - / There were no birds to fly.
