Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust
Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each
of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all
those acts will be written the history of this generation.
Robert F. Kennedy
We may affirm absolutely that nothing great in this world has
been accomplished without passion.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Great acts are made up of small deeds.
Great causes and little men go ill together.
Greatness is the dream of youth realized in old age.
Alfred Victor comte de Vigny
I can do small things in a great way.
James Freeman Clarke
I never wanted to be famous; I only wanted to be great.
I wouldnt say that Im the greatest guitarist ever.
Id say probably that Im the greatest guitarist sitting in this chair.
Let it never be forgotten that glamour is not greatness; applause
is not fame; prominence is not eminence. The person of the hour is not apt to
be the person of the ages. It is what the unimportant do that really counts
and determines the course of history. The world would soon die but for the fidelity,
loyalty and consecration of those whose names are unhonored and unsung.
John R. Sizoo
All great achievements require time.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some hire public
Daniel J. Boorstin
Strong convictions precede great actions.
James Freeman Clarke
The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim
too high and falling short;
but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.
The price of greatness is responsibility.
Sir Winston Churchill
The three signs of great men are generosity in the design,
humanity in the execution, moderation in success.
Otto von Bismarck
To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan,
and not quite enough time.
And what he greatly thought, he nobly dard.
Great men are they who see that spiritual is stronger
than any material force; that thoughts rule the world.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When youre as great as I am, its hard to be humble.
I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief
accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble.
Everything great and intelligent is in the minority.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
