To vilify a great man is the readiest way in which a little man can himself attain greatness.
The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.
We are so small between the stars, so large against the sky.
To some people it is fatal to be recognized by greatness.
Something made greater by ourselves and in turn that makes us greater.
For the great doesn’t happen through impulse alone, and is a succession of little things that are brought together.[Want het groote geschiedt niet bij impulsie alleen en is een aaneenschakeling van kleine dingen die tot elkaar gebragt zijn.]
