greatness

A Quote by Thomas Carlyle on unhappiness, greatness, infinity, mortality, and human condition

Man's unhappiness, as I construe, comes of his greatness; it is because there is an Infinite in him, which with all his cunning he cannot quite bury under the Finite.

A Quote by Charles Simmons on integrity and greatness

Integrity is the first step to true greatness. Men love to praise, but are slow to practice it. To maintain it in high places costs self-denial; in all places it is liable to opposition, but its end is glorious, and the universe will yet do it homage.

Charles Simmons (1924 -)

A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on greatness, strength, solitary, loneliness, and alone

Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.

Henry Ward Beecher (1813 - 1887)

A Quote by Amelia Barr on relationships, love, feelings, emotions, spirituality, and greatness

Human relations are built on feeling, not on reason or knowledge. And feeling is not an exact science; like all spiritual qualities, it has the vagueness of greatness about it.
