What chance gathers she easily scatters. A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)
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)
Greatness is a road leading towards the unknown.
Charles de Gaulle (1890 - 1970)
A man does not show his greatness by being at one extremity, but rather by touching both at once.
Blaise Pascal (1623 - 1662)
Greatness breaks laws.
Nothing is more simple than greatness; indeed, to be simple is to be great.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)
Not a day passes over this earth but men and women of note do great deeds, speak great words and suffer noble sorrows.
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.
Sophia Loren (1934 -)

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.
