Greatness
1.

Great people are they who see that spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
2.

When a milestone is conquered, the subtle erosion called entitlement begins its consuming grind. The team regards its greatness as a trait and a right. Half hearted effort becomes habit and saps a champion.

- Riley, Pat
3.

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.

4.

That's part of American greatness, is discrimination. Yes, sir. Inequality, I think, breeds freedom and gives a man opportunity.

- Lester Maddox
5.

The chief proof of mans greatness lies in his perception of his own smallness.

- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
6.

Integrity is the first step to true greatness. Men love to praise, but are slow to practice it. To maintain it in high places costs self-denial; in all places it is liable to opposition, but its end is glorious, and the universe will yet do it homage.

- Simmons, Charles
7.

The tourist who moves about to see and hear and open himself to all the influences of the places which condense centuries of human greatness is only a man in search of excellence.

- Lerner, Max
8.

I look upon those pitiful concretions of lime and clay which spring up, in mildewed forwardness, out of the kneaded fields about our capital... not merely with the careless disgust of an offended eye, not merely with sorrow for a desecrated landscape, but with a painful foreboding that the roots of our national greatness must be deeply cankered when they are thus loosely struck in their native ground. The crowded tenements of a struggling and restless population differ only from the tents of the Arab or the Gipsy by their less healthy openness to the air of heaven, and less happy choice of their spot of earth; by their sacrifice of liberty without the gain of rest, and of stability without the luxury of change.

- Ruskin, John
9.

Greatness and goodness are not means, but ends.

- Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
10.

No president in history has been more vilified or was more vilivied during the time he was President than Lincoln. Those who knew him, his secretaries, have written that he was deeply hurt by what was said about him and drawn about him, but on the other hand, Lincoln had the great strength of character never to display it, always able to stand tall and strong and firm no matter how harsh or unfair the criticism might be. These elements of greatness, of course, inspire us all today.

- Richard Nixon
11.

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
12.

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
13.

It is the nature of all greatness not to be exact.

- Edmund Burke
14.

The passing of an ordinary man is sad. The passing of a great man is tragic, and doubly tragic when the greatness passes before the man does.

- Harpo Marx
15.

What millions died that Caesar might be great?

- Campell, Joseph
16.

The great man fights the elements in his time that hinder his own greatness, in other words his own freedom and sincerity.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
17.

Greatness is more than potential. It is the execution of that potential. Beyond the raw talent. You need the appropriate training. You need the discipline. You need the inspiration. You need the drive.

- Eric A. Burns
18.

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

- Shakespeare, William
19.

He's the greatest man who ever came out of Plymouth, Vermont. [On Calvin Coolidge]
