You must either conquer and rule or lose and serve, suffer or triumph, and be the anvil or the hammer.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

Where there is much light, the shadow is deep.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Character develops itself in the stream of life.
Genius develops in quiet places, Character out in the full current of human life.
Talent is nurtured in solitude; character is formed in the stormy billows of the world.
We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.
Men show their character in nothing more clearly than by what they think laughable.
Choose well, your choice is brief, and yet endless.
A clever man commits no minor blunders.
