greatness

A Quote by Henri Frédéric Amiel on greatness, extraordinary, and nature

Great men are true men, the men in whom nature has succeeded. They are not extraordinary - they are in the true order. It is the other species of men who are not what they ought to be.

Henri Frederic Amiel (1821 - 1881)

A Quote by Zane Grey on greatness, loss, grief, weakness, faith, and dreams

Recipe for greatness — To bear up under loss, to fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief, to be victor over anger, to smile when tears are close, to resist evil men and base instincts, to hate hate and to love love, to go on when it would seem good to die, to seek ever after the glory and the dream, to look up with unquenchable faith in something evermore about to be, that is what any man can do, and so be great.

Zane Grey (1875 - 1939)

A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on greatness, soul, happiness, fate, value, and joy

A man who has once perceived, however temporarily and however briefly, what makes greatness of soul, can no longer be happy if he allows himself to be petty, self-seeking, troubled by trivial misfortunes, dreading what fate may have in store for him. The man capable of greatness of soul will open wide the windows of his mind, letting the winds blow freely upon it from every portion of the universe.

He will see himself and life and the world as truly as our human limitations will permit; realizing the brevity and minuteness of human life, he will realize also that in individual minds is concentrated whatever of value the known universe contains. And he will see that the man whose mind mirrors the world becomes in a sense as great as the world. In emancipation from the fears that beset the slave of circumstance he will experience a profound joy, and through all the vicissitudes of his outward life he will remain in the depths of his being a happy man.

A Quote by Sophia Loren on challenges, self-love, greatness, and perseverence

Getting ahead in a diffcult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.

A Quote by Julia Cameron on art, artist, greatness, and work

The need to be a great artist makes it hard to be an artist. The need to produce a great work of art makes it hard to produce any art at all.
