If you want to make life easy, make it hard.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

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.
Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.
They teach in academies far too many things, and far too much that is useless.
Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
By nature we have no defect that could not become a strength, no strength that could not become a defect.
A king there was once reigning, Who had a goodly flea, Him loved he without feigning, As his own son were he!

Courage and modesty are the most unequivocal of virtues, for they are of a kind that hypocrisy cannot imitate; they too have this quality in common, that they are expressed by the same color.
