It is easy in this world to live after the world's opinion, it is easy in solitude after our own, but the great man is he who in the midst of a crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

You think your work is good. Your co-workers think it is good. Your boss (even) thinks it is good. And it is really good. But good is only half a block away from the average and great is all the way uptown.

Who is wise? He who learns from everyone. Who is strong? He who conquers himself. Who is rich? He who rejoices in his portion. Who is honored? He who honors others.

George Orwell

Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.

Jennifer Kramer

I have been doing so much, with so little, for so long, that I am highly qualified to make something out of nothing at all!
