Almost every man wastes part of his life attempting to display qualities which he does not possess
In the arena of human life the honors and rewards fall to those who show their good qualities in action
Seek not every quality in one individual
Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without
It is not enough to have great qualities; We should also have the management of them
It is quality rather than quantity that matters

On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
