Great men are never sufficiently shown but in struggles
The price of greatness is responsibility
There is no greatness where there is no simplicity, goodness and truth
Man's greatness lies in his power of thought
Great and small suffer the same mishaps
All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door
Be not afraid of greatness: some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them

Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men
An invincible determination can accomplish almost anything and in this lies the great distinction between great men and little men
