Greatness quotes
Greatness
True greatness consists in the use of a powerful understanding to enlighten oneself and others.

- Voltaire
Service to many leads to greatness-great respect, great satisfaction. Success is not having to wait until someone goes to Hong Kong before you get a camera.

- Rohn, Jim
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
Friendship's the privilege of private men; for wretched greatness knows no blessing so substantial.

- Tate, Nahum
I can write good songs. I can sing 'em, and I mean it, Imean it deeply, and I pour everything into that. Other than that, I suck.

- Duritz, Adam
I want to be great, something special.

- Leonard, Sugar Ray
Neither wealth or greatness render us happy.

- La Fontaine, Jean De
The greatest men of a nation are those it puts to death.

- Renan, Ernest
The superiority of some men is merely local. They are great because their associates are little.

- Johnson, Samuel
It is always the adventurers who do great things, not the sovereigns of great empires.

- Montesquieu, Charles De
Be not afraid of greatness: some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

- William Shakespeare
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
Lord Bacon told Sir Edward Coke when he was boasting, The less you speak of your greatness, the more shall I think of it.

- Shakespeare, William
There are people who possess not so much genius as a certain talent for perceiving the desires of the century, or even of the decade, before it has done so itself.

- Lichtenberg, Georg C.
Those who intend on becoming great should love neither themselves or their own things, but only what is just, whether it happens to be done by themselves or others.

- Plato
Anyone can be great with money. With money, greatness is not a talent but an obligation. The trick is to be great without money.

You know, sometimes, when they say you're ahead of your time, it's just a polite way of saying you have a real bad sense of timing.

- Mcgovern, George
The people always have some champion whom they set over them and nurse into greatness. This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.

- Plato
After a fellow gets famous it does not take long for someone to bob up that used to sit next to him in school.

- Hubbard, Kin
Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping-stone to greatness.

- Oprah Winfrey
