  • We leven allen verschillend en toch gelijk.
    • We're all leading lives that are different and yet the same.
    • Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl (1942 - 1944), 6 July 1944.
    • Variant translation: Our lives are all different and yet the same.
  • We've looked and looked, but after all where are we?
    Do we know any better where we are,
    And how it stands between the night tonight
    And a man with a smoky lantern chimney?
    How different from the way it ever stood?
  • I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
  • Every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle.
    • Thomas Jefferson, inaugural address (March 4, 1801); in Andrew A. Lipscomb, ed., The Writings of Thomas Jefferson (1904), vol. 3, p. 319.
  • If I could wake up in a different place, at a different time, could I wake up as a different person?
