"Immortality is not a gift, Immortality is an achievement; And only those who strive mightily Shall possess it."
"Those who first oppose a good work, seize it and make it their own, when the cornerstone is laid and memorial tablets are erected."
"Beware of the man who rises to power from one suspender."
"How shall the soul of a man be larger than the life he has lived?"
"To put meaning in one's life may end in madness, But life without meaning is the torture Of restlessness and vague desire-It is a boat longing for the sea and yet afraid."
