A Quote by Honoré de Balzac on eternity, idealism, laws, patience, and world

To live in the presence of great truths and eternal laws, to be led by permanent ideals-that is what keeps a man patient when the world ignores him, and calm and unspoiled when the world praises him.

Honore de Balzac (1799 - 1850)
