It is as hard to do your duty when men are sneering at you as when they are shooting at you.

If you think you can win, you can win. Faith is necessary to victory.

If you achieve success, you will get applause, and if you get applause, you will hear it. My advice to you concerning applause is this: Enjoy it but never quite believe it.

Never take the advice of someone who has not had your kind of trouble.

Greek proverb

Painless poverty is better than embittered wealth.

Frederika Bremer

People who are arrogant on account of their wealth are about equal to the Laplanders, who measure a man's worth by the number of his reindeer.

You are going to let the fear of poverty govern you life and your reward will be that you will eat, but you will not live.

Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.

Jonathan Edwards

The best, most beautiful, and most perfect way that we have of expressing a sweet concord of mind to each other is by music.
