It is a Grand Mistake to think of being Great without Goodness; and I pronounce it as certain, that there was never yet a truly Great Man that was not at the same Time truly Virtuous.
I want people to walk around delusional about how great they can be – and then to fight so hard for it every day that the lie becomes the truth.
I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. It might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
For the great doesn’t happen through impulse alone, and is a succession of little things that are brought together.
