Greatness quotes
Greatness
I have touched the highest point of all my greatness, and from that full meridian of my glory I haste now to my setting.

- Shakespeare, William
I believe that the first test of a truly great man is his humility. I don't mean by humility, doubt of his power. But really great men have a curious feeling that the greatness is not of them, but through them. And they see something divine in every other man and are endlessly, foolishly, incredibly merciful.

- John Ruskin
The Past -- the dark unfathomed retrospect! The teeming gulf --the sleepers and the shadows! The past! the infinite greatness of the past! For what is the present after all but a growth out of the past?

- Whitman, Walt
Great people are meteors designed to burn so that the earth may be lighted.

Greatness does not approach him who is forever looking down.

- Hitopadesa
Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.

- Shakespeare, William
Think enthusiastically about everything; but especially about your job. If you do, you'll put a touch of glory in your life. If you love your job with enthusiasm, you'll shake it to pieces. You'll love it into greatness.

- Norman Vincent Peale
The measure of a country's greatness is its ability to retain compassion in times of crisis.

- Thurgood Marshall
Friendship's the privilege of private men; for wretched greatness knows no blessing so substantial.

- Tate, Nahum
The difference between greatness and mediocrity is often how an individual views a mistake...

- Boswell, Nelson
Mediocrity in politics is not to be despised. Greatness is not needed.

- Enzensberger, Hans Magnus
It is the privilege of posterity to set matters right between those antagonists who, by their rivalry for greatness, divided a whole age.

- Addison, Joseph
It is the nature of all greatness not to be exact.

- Edmund Burke
The stronger must dominate and not blend with the weaker, thus sacrificing his own greatness.

- Adolf Hitler
It is not difficult to get away into retirement; and there live upon your own convictions; nor is it difficult to mix with men and follow their convictions; but to enter into the world; and there live firmly and fearlessly according to your own conscience; that is Christian greatness.

I was lucky enough to see with my own eyes the recent stock-market crash, where they lost several million dollars, a rabble of dead money that went sliding off into the sea. Never as then, amid suicides, hysteria, and groups of fainting people, have I felt the sensation of real death, death without hope, death that is nothing but rottenness, for the spectacle was terrifying but devoid of greatness... I felt something like a divine urge to bombard that whole canyon of shadow, where ambulances collected suicides whose hands were full of rings.

- Lorca, Federico Garcia
The greatest men of a nation are those it puts to death.

- Renan, Ernest
