The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

The people who are absent are the ideal; those who are present seem to be quite commonplace.
Fresh activity is the only means of overcoming adversity.
The deed is everything, the glory is naught.

The destiny of any nation, at any given time, depends on the opinions of its young men under five-and-twenty.
Difficulties increase the nearer we approach the goal.
If you want to make life easy, make it hard.
The greatest difficulties lie where we are not looking for them.
It is only in misery that we recognize the hand of God leading good men to good.
We know accurately only when we know little; with knowledge doubt increases.
