Greatness quotes by Henry Steele Commager

Greatness quotes by Jean-Baptiste Henri Lacordaire
#6. It is not genius, nor glory, nor love that reflects the greatness of the human soul; it is kindness. #Quote by Jean-Baptiste Henri Lacordaire
Greatness quotes by Seneca The Younger
#7. Philosophy takes as her aim the state of happiness ... she shows us what are real and what are only apparent evils. She strips men's minds of empty thinking, bestows a greatness that is solid and administers a check to greatness where it is puffed up and all an empty show; she sees that we are left no doubt about the difference between what is great and what is bloated. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Greatness quotes by Earl Nightingale
#8. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

#Quote by Earl Nightingale
Greatness quotes by S.T. Anthony
#9. Sometimes you wake up from the storm.
Sometimes it kills you.
Child, this storm will make you rise to greatness. #Quote by S.T. Anthony
Greatness quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#11. Anyone who accepts Jesus into his heart and believes Him always becomes great #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Greatness quotes by Lynn Steward
#12. As she looked in the full-length mirror in her dressing room, she added a few ropes of pearls, pinned a white silk camellia, and draped the Chantilly lace shawl. In that moment, Dana thought of fashion's most enduring icon who created this elegant and alluring style, and the happy personal life that eluded her. Mademoiselle Chanel died in 1971 at the age of eighty-eight while working on her spring collection, but her passion for work did not fill the void of marriage and children. Her success was costly, but clearly the choice of an uncompromising woman determined to achieve greatness on her own. She once said, I never wanted to weigh more heavily on a man than a bird. #Quote by Lynn Steward
Greatness quotes by Archibald Alexander
#14. No one was ever saved because his sins were small; no one was ever rejected on account of the greatness of his sins. Where sin abounded, grace shall much more abound. #Quote by Archibald Alexander
Greatness quotes by Blaise Pascal
#15. One has followed the other in an endless circle, for it is certain that as man's insight increases so he finds both wretchedness and greatness within himself. In a word man knows he is wretched. Thus he is wretched because he is so, but he is truly great because he knows it. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Greatness quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#16. The willingness to challenge hardships taps the power within human beings to transform even a place of tragedy into a stage for fulfilling one's mission. #Quote by Daisaku Ikeda
Greatness quotes by Amy Neftzger
#17. All great roads are paved with uncomfortable memories. #Quote by Amy Neftzger
Greatness quotes by John Steinbeck
#18. A dying people tolerates the present, rejects the future, and finds its satisfactions in past greatness and half remembered glory #Quote by John Steinbeck
Greatness quotes by Ayn Rand
#19. And the desire would never be satisfied, except by a being of equal greatness. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Greatness quotes by Brian Tracy
#20. Dare to go forward. Courage is the mark of greatness in leadership #Quote by Brian Tracy
Greatness quotes by Bode Miller
#21. Join the bold, the brazen, the unintimidated. Join not having excuses. Join the idea that fun is the source of all joy. Join the unwillingness to give up. Join doing things your way. Join not joining. Join that purpose is stronger than outcome. Join your gut. Join the constant challenge of seeking greatness. Join play. Join the hunger to find what makes you happy. Join karma and nature and the effect you have on your world. Join your philosophy. Join something bigger than you. Join what you believe. #Quote by Bode Miller
Greatness quotes by Adolf Hitler
#22. Under the guidance of the Reich, Europe would speedily have become unified. Once the Jewish poison had been eradicated, unification would have been an easy matter. France and Italy, each defeated in turn at an interval of a few months by the two Germanic Powers, would have been well out of it. Both would have had to renounce their inappropriate aspirations to greatness. At the same time they would have had to renounce their pretensions in North Africa and the Near East; and that would have allowed Europe to pursue a bold policy of friendship towards Islam. (4th February 1945) #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Greatness quotes by Alexandra Robbins
#23. If there is a single factor that spells out the difference between the cafeteria fringe headed for greatness and those doomed for low self-worth, even more than a caring teacher or a group of friends, it is supportive, accepting parents who not only love their children unconditionally, but also don't make them feel as if their idiosyncrasies qualify as "conditions" in the first place. #Quote by Alexandra Robbins
Greatness quotes by Albert Einstein
#24. There is only one road to human greatness: through the school of hard knocks. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Greatness quotes by Don Yaeger
#25. Marino was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005, and his name always comes up when the conversation centers on the greatest quarterbacks of all time. But his greatness comes with an asterisk: He never won the Big Game. #Quote by Don Yaeger
Greatness quotes by Wallace D. Wattles
#26. Hurry and fear will instantly cut your connect with the universal mind. #Quote by Wallace D. Wattles
Greatness quotes by Osho
#27. You are always afraid that somebody may think you a fool. You are afraid that if others think you to be a fool, you will start suspecting it. If so many people think you a fool your self-confidence will be lost. And if everybody goes on repeating that you are a fool, sooner or later you will come to believe it.

Only a wise man cannot be deceived, he can appear as a fool.

Have you observed yourself? You are always trying to exhibit your wisdom, always in search of a victim to whom you can show your knowledge, just searching, hunting for somebody weaker than you – then you will jump in and you will show your wisdom.
A wise man need not be an exhibitionist. Whatsoever is, is. He is not aware of it, he is not in any hurry to show it. If you want to find it, you will have to make efforts. If you have to know whether he is gentle or not, that is going to be your discovery. #Quote by Osho
Greatness quotes by Libba Bray
#28. Reminds us that greatness lies even in the smallest of moments, in the humblest of hearts, and we shall, each of us, be called to greatness. Whether we shall rise to meet it or let it slip away is the challenge put before us all. #Quote by Libba Bray
Greatness quotes by Brother Lawrence
#29. It is not the greatness of the work which matters to God but the love with which it is done. #Quote by Brother Lawrence
Greatness quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#30. The world does not know how to concentrate on working. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Greatness quotes by Rebecca Maizel
#31. Don't be surprised by your greatness. Be surprised that no one expected it. #Quote by Rebecca Maizel
Greatness quotes by Muriel Barbery
#32. Moments like this act as magical interludes, placing our hearts at the edge of our souls: fleetingly, yet intensely, a fragment of eternity has come to enrich time ... When tea becomes ritual, it takes its place at the heart of our ability to see greatness in small things. #Quote by Muriel Barbery
Greatness quotes by Maya Angelou
#33. You can only become great at that thing you're willing to sacrifice for. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Greatness quotes by James Smithson
#34. It is in knowledge that man has found his greatness and his happiness. #Quote by James Smithson

#36. Great fish do not drown in small rivers. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Greatness quotes by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
#37. I am not religious, but I am a pious man ... A religious man has a definite religion. He says "God is there" or "God is there," "God is there." "Your god is not my god, and that's all." But the pious man, he just looks out with awe, and says, "where is God?" And "well, I don't understand it and I would like to know what this creation really means." That is a pious man, who is really touched by the greatness of nature and of the creation. #Quote by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
Greatness quotes by James E. Faust

Greatness quotes by Ellen Oh
#41. Your differences are what make you unique. They're what make you special. You have nothing in common with these ignorant retches who thrive on superstition and fear. You were meant for greatness. #Quote by Ellen Oh
Greatness quotes by Jack Scalia
#42. There's a greatness in this country many of the kids today don't know. #Quote by Jack Scalia
Greatness quotes by Roger Zelazny
#43. I don't know that I ever wanted greatness on its own. It seems rather like wanting to be an engineer, rather than wanting to design something - or wanting to be a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip. #Quote by Roger Zelazny
Greatness quotes by John Updike
#44. Suddenly summoned to witness something great and horrendous, we keep fighting not to reduce it to our own smallness. #Quote by John Updike
Greatness quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#45. I depend on my son because I want him to be something that I am not. He is the fulfillment of all my hopes, my desires; he is my immortality, my continuation. So my relationship with my son, with my wife, with my children, with my neighbors, is a state of psychological dependency, and I am fearful of being in a state in which there is no dependence. I do not know what that means, therefore I depend on books, on relationship, on society, I depend on property to give me security, position, prestige. And if I do not depend on any of these things, then I depend on the experiences that I have had, on my own thoughts, on the greatness of my own pursuits.

The problem is not how not to depend, but just to see the fact that we do depend. Where there is attachment there is no love. Because you do not know how to love, you depend, and…where there is dependency there is fear. I am talking of psychological dependency, not of your dependence on the milkman to bring you milk, or your dependence on the railway, or on a bridge. It is this inward psychological dependency - on ideas, on people, on property that breeds fear. So, you cannot be free from fear as long as you do not understand relationship, and relationship can be understood only when the mind watches all its relationships, which is the beginning of self-knowledge. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Greatness quotes by Adriana Trigiani
#46. There was a fleeting cold front, the slight judgment that said immigrants were a necessary fact of life, one that must be tolerated but never truly accepted. The only way to ever become a permanent part of America's greatness would be to defend it. Cassidy #Quote by Adriana Trigiani
Greatness quotes by Jaachynma N.E. Agu
#47. A virtuous mother sows and sows seeds of greatness with great life in mind. #Quote by Jaachynma N.E. Agu
Greatness quotes by Albert Camus
#48. There are means that cannot be excused. And I should like to be able to love my country and still love justice. I don't want just any greatness for it, particularly a greatness born of blood and falsehood. I want to keep it alive by keeping justice alive. #Quote by Albert Camus
Greatness quotes by Jack Kornfield
#49. sorrow or a wound can heal, allowing us to grow into our fullest, most compassionate identity, our greatness of heart. When we truly come to terms with sorrow, a great and unshakable joy is born in our heart. HEALING #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Greatness quotes by Saim .A. Cheeda

Greatness quotes by Chris Christie
#56. The greatness of America is in the American people. And what we need to do is get the government the hell out of the way and let the American people win once again. #Quote by Chris Christie
Greatness quotes by Kobe Bryant
#57. Difficulty is a nurse of greatness-a harsh nurse, who rocks her foster children roughly, but rocks them in strength and athletic proportion. The mind, grappling with great aims and wrestling with mighty impediments, grows by a certain necessity to the stature of greatness. #Quote by Kobe Bryant
Greatness quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#58. I know now that all people hunger for a noble, unsullied past, that as sure as the black nationalist dreams of a sublime Africa before the white man's corruption, so did Thomas Jefferson dream of an idyllic Britain before the Normans, so do all of us dream of some other time when things were so simple. I know now that that hunger is a retreat from the knotty present into myth and that what ultimately awaits those who retreat into fairy tales, who seek refuge in the mad pursuit to be made great again, in the image of greatness that never was, is tragedy. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Greatness quotes by Amit Ray
#59. Danger of excessive nationalism is nuclear annihilation. Danger of globalism is the eradication of local values and cultures. Greatness can only be realized in the middle path. #Quote by Amit Ray
Greatness quotes by Twyla Tharp
#60. Traveling the paths of greatness, even in someone else's footprints, is a vital means to acquiring skill. #Quote by Twyla Tharp
Greatness quotes by Seth Godin

Greatness quotes by Acharya Balrkrishna
#62. Acharya Balkrishna" on the Origin of Yog and its Greatness

"Standing upright facing all storms and tempests like Devalaya, Yog too is like a monument, established like saints and sages, reaching where all the trials and turbulences cease. Even adversities strengthen the bricks and a stone of this temple – such is the power of Yog. The same way, the evasive flow of time might seldom limit the greatness of Yog and Yogis. #Quote by Acharya Balrkrishna
Greatness quotes by David Michie
#63. As much as possible, it is useful to think of all other beings as being just like me. Every living being strives for happiness. Every being wants to avoid all forms of suffering. They are not just objects or things to be used for our benefit. You know, Mahatma Gandhi once said: 'The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. #Quote by David Michie
Greatness quotes by Arnold Palmer
#64. Swing your swing. Not some idea of a swing. Not a swing you saw on TV. Not that swing you wish you had. No, swing your swing. Capable of greatness. Prized only by you. Perfect in it's imperfection. Swing your swing. I know, I did. #Quote by Arnold Palmer
Greatness quotes by Dave Chappelle

Greatness quotes by Max Lerner
#68. 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. #Quote by Max Lerner
Greatness quotes by George Stillman Hillard
#69. A great man is a gift, in some measure a revelation of God. A great man, living for high ends, is the divinest thing that can be seen on earth. The value and interest of history are derived chiefly from the lives and services of the eminent men whom it commemorates. Indeed, without these, there would be no such thing as history, and the progress of a nation would be little worth recording, as the march of a trading caravan across a desert. #Quote by George Stillman Hillard
Greatness quotes by Anonymous
#70. There is a problem with writers. If what a writer wrote was published and sold many, many copies, the writer thought he was great. If what a writer wrote was published and sold a medium number of copies, the writer thought he was great. If what a writer wrote was published and sold very few copies, the writer thought he was great. If what the writer wrote never was published and he didn't have the money to publish it himself, then he thought he was truly great. The truth, howevet, was that there was very little greatness. It was almost nonexistent, invisible. But you could be sure that the worst writers had the most confidence, the least self-doubt. Anyway, writers were to be avoided, #Quote by Anonymous
Greatness quotes by John Piper
#71. We waste our lives when we do not pray and think and dream and plan and work toward magnifying God in all spheres of life.

Greatness quotes by Debasish Mridha
#72. A great teacher plants the seeds of greatness in the minds of future generations. #Quote by Debasish Mridha

Greatness quotes by John Steinbeck
#74. A dragon killer, he was, a rescuer of damsels, and his small sins seemed so great to him that he felt unfit and unseemly. She wished her father were here. Her father had felt greatness in Tom. Perhaps he would know now how to release it out of its darkness and let it fly free. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Greatness quotes by Marthe Bibesco
#75. Those two wholesome defects of the French people, malice and curiosity, both of which are essential to its greatness. #Quote by Marthe Bibesco
Greatness quotes by Ana Claudia Antunes
#76. Don't let your inner demons
Take the best of your creeds.
If God gives you lemons,
You must plant the seeds.

Do not be so self-absorbed
That you can't see the tree.
If you succumb to what's morbid
You bury your chance to be free. #Quote by Ana Claudia Antunes
Greatness quotes by Patrul Rinpoche
#77. What makes an action positive or negative? Not how it looks, not whether it is big or small, but it is the positive or negative motivation that is behind it.

No matter how many teachings that you have heard, to be motivated by ordinary concerns, such as a desire for greatness, fame or whatever, is not the way of the true Dharma. #Quote by Patrul Rinpoche
Greatness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#78. You can achieve your set-goals by God's grace #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Greatness quotes by James C. Collins

Greatness quotes by Frank Herbert
#80. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Greatness quotes by Anonymous
#81. The most critical are not the successful, nor the complete failures, but those who might have achieved something of worth, save for small but crucial faults within themselves, for they can seldom bear the thought of how close they came to greatness. #Quote by Anonymous
Greatness quotes by Alphonse De Lamartine
#82. True greatness is sovereign wisdom. We are never deceived by our virtues. #Quote by Alphonse De Lamartine
Greatness quotes by Brock Clarke
#83. When I was a boy, I would read those postcards and know exactly why my father was doing what he was doing: he was taking a stab at greatness, that is, if greatness is simply another word for doing something different from what you were already doing
or maybe greatness is the thing we want to have so that other people will want to have us, or maybe greatness is merely the grail for our unhappy, striving selves, the thing we think we need but don't and can't get anyway. #Quote by Brock Clarke
Greatness quotes by Marguerite Steen
#84. Greatness is a two-faced coin - and the reverse is humility. #Quote by Marguerite Steen

#85. May you find grace to be great. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Greatness quotes by O. Hakan Palm
#86. I was overwhelmed with gratitude that such greatness and nobility survived in the most degraded situation. I felt that the eternal spirit, which exists in all people, could be accessible despite the circumstances. Maybe there was still hope for the world, if some could remain untouched and pure in the midst of all the insanity! I learned that the hope that the world will be a place where all people will love their neighbors as themselves is alive as long as there is one person alive practicing it on the earth. #Quote by O. Hakan Palm
Greatness quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#87. The great men of earth are the shadow men, who, having lived and died, now live again and forever through their undying thoughts. Thus living, though their footfalls are heard no more, their voices are louder than the thunder, and unceasing as the flow of tides or air. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Greatness quotes by Carol S. Dweck
#88. As growth-minded leaders, they start with a belief in human potential and development - both their own and other people's. Instead of using the company as a vehicle for their greatness, they use it as an engine of growth - for themselves, the employees, and the company as a whole. #Quote by Carol S. Dweck
Greatness quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#89. Is a man one whit the better because he is grown great in other men's esteem? #Quote by Thomas A Kempis

Greatness quotes by Laozi
#93. The sage does not attempt anything very big, and thus achieves greatness. #Quote by Laozi
Greatness quotes by J. Martin Kohe
#94. Yes, we are all different. Different customs, different foods, different mannerisms, different languages, but not so different that we cannot get along with one another. If we will disagree without being disagreeable. #Quote by J. Martin Kohe
Greatness quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#95. Things that are truly great need nothing from me, and to somehow think that they do speaks to my utter lack of greatness. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Greatness quotes by Felix Mendelssohn
#96. First and foremost an artist should pay homage to grandness, honour and bow to it, and not try to extinguish the fierce flames of such, in an attempt to have his own feeble light shine brighter. When one isn't able to acknowledge greatness, I would really want to know how he endeavours to make me experience it. #Quote by Felix Mendelssohn
Greatness quotes by Philip Neri
#97. The greatness of our love of God must be tested by the desire we have of suffering for His love. #Quote by Philip Neri

Imagine what others have not.
Do what others will not.
Achieve what others could not. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Greatness quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#102. Don't neglect these tools in your journey : an eye to look and see and to differentiate flowers from leaves, a mind to comprehend and be focused, ears to listen and hear, a heart to understand what is truly worth our time and what not to give attention to, and a good strength to dare unceasingly in wit and with courage, focusing on only the true factors of the matters that truly matter for distinctive footprints in the end! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Greatness quotes by Joseph Addison
#103. There is no defense against reproach, but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Greatness quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#104. The great make its feel, first of all, the indifference of circumstances.

Greatness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#105. Never allow impatience to prevent you for reaching your full potential. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita

great are Day and Night.
Great is Wealth
great is Poverty
great is Expression-great is Silence. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Greatness quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#107. Realizing who we are and what we may become assures us that with God nothing really is impossible. From the time we learn that Jesus wants us for a Sunbeam until we learn more fully the basic principles of the gospel, we are taught to strive for perfection. It is not new to us then to talk of the importance of achievement. The difficulty arises when inflated expectations of the world alter our definition of greatness. #Quote by Howard W. Hunter
Greatness quotes by Sravani Saha Nakhro
#108. But what breeds outright greatness is less talk and more do. #Quote by Sravani Saha Nakhro
Greatness quotes by Mary Kay Ash
#109. Be a dreamer. Have a sense of greatness. It has been said that if you can dream it, you can do it. And I believe that. Before your dream can become a reality, you have to see it in your own mind; see its fulfillment, whatever it may be. #Quote by Mary Kay Ash
Greatness quotes by Mike Huckabee
#110. I think America is in trouble, but it's not beyond repair. But it's going to take leadership who sees the greatness of this country and who believes that, once again, we can be one nation under God. #Quote by Mike Huckabee
Greatness quotes by Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...
#111. It is base to take advantage of our rank or greatness by making fun of those placed beneath us in life. #Quote by Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...
Greatness quotes by Philippa Gregory
#112. For who could resist a woman who could fall from being queen to commoner and yet still carry herself as if greatness was within? #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Greatness quotes by George Foreman

Greatness quotes by Randa Manning-Johnson
#114. Most are constantly asking for more, but with that comes more responsibility and most aren't willing to or able to handle that. Greatness comes at a cost and requires an investment. If you don't want the work.... you don't want the prize. #Quote by Randa Manning-Johnson
Greatness quotes by Noel Coward
#115. Let's drink to the spirit of gallantry and courage that made a strange Heaven out of unbelievable Hell, and let's drink to the hope that one day this country of ours, which we love so much, will find dignity and greatness and peace again. #Quote by Noel Coward
Greatness quotes by Ben Sasse
#116. If a free people is going to be reproduced, it will require watering and revivifying and owning anew older traditions and awaking the curiosity in the soul of each citizen. National greatness will not be recovered via a mindless expansion of bureaucratized schooling. Seventy years ago, Dorothy Sayers wrote, 'Sure, we demand another grant of money, we postpone the school leaving age and plan to build bigger and better schools. We demand that teachers further slave conscientiously in and out of school hours. But to what end? I believe,' Sayers lamented, 'all this devoted effort is largely frustrated because we have no definable goal for each child to become a fully formed adult. We have lost the tools of learning, sacrificing them to the piecemeal, subject matter approach of bureaucratized schooling that finally compromises to produce passive rather than active emerging adults. But our kids are not commodities, they are plants. They require a protected environment, and care, and feeding, but most basically, an internal yearning to grow toward the sunlight. What we need is the equipping of each child with those lost tools. #Quote by Ben Sasse
Greatness quotes by Clarence Darrow
#117. Robert G. Ingersoll was a great man. a wonderful intellect, a great soul of matchless courage, one of the great men of the earth -- and yet we have no right to bow down to his memory simply because he was great. Great orators, great soldiers, great lawyers, often use their gifts for a most unholy cause. We meet to pay a tribute of love and respect to Robert G. Ingersoll because he used his matchless power for the good of man.

{Darrow's eulogy for Ingersoll at his funeral} #Quote by Clarence Darrow

by making the small things we do
great. #Quote by S. Tarr
Greatness quotes by Nicholas Tharcher
#138. Inevitably it follows that anyone with an independent mind must become 'one who resists or opposes an authority or established convention': a rebel ... And if enough people come to agree with - and follow - the REBEL, we now have a DEVIL. Until, of course, still more people agree. And then, finally, we have ... GREATNESS. #Quote by Nicholas Tharcher
Greatness quotes by Leo Baeck
#139. A tradition is entrusted to human personalities which it reflects. What a man recalls as a word or an experience of the master is, even against his will and without his knowledge, colored by his own personality and character, by the littleness and the greatness in him, by his hopes, his longing, and his faith. #Quote by Leo Baeck
Greatness quotes by Rebecca Gordon
#140. The Black Woman is amazingly strong, truly powerful, deeply visionary, has incredible worth and much love and goodness within that she is willing to share. She is to be honoured, yet must begin first to see and honour all of this (and much more) within and about herself. Let us see this more in who we truly are and live, when we do, we will attract more of the greatness that we absolutely deserve. #Quote by Rebecca Gordon
Greatness quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#141. A good investment of your time is studying to become better at what you do daily #Quote by Sunday Adelaja

Greatness quotes by Walter Savage Landor
#145. It appears to be among the laws of nature, that the mighty of intellect should be pursued and carped by the little, as the solitary flight of one great bird is followed by the twittering petulance of many smaller. #Quote by Walter Savage Landor

Greatness quotes by Dallas Willard
#149. To glorify God means to think and act in such a way that the goodness, greatness, and beauty of God are constantly obvious to ourselves and all those around us.
It means to live in such a way that when people see us they think, Thank God for God, if God would create such a life. #Quote by Dallas Willard

Greatness quotes by Daniel Handler
#153. The Edith Head Trio, I would say, would be even less of a musical career than playing the accordion, particularly because I played the accordion in The Edith Head Trio. I'm very impressed by your Googling. The Edith Head Trio and another band, Tzamboni, were two bands I was in after college that played at tiny clubs to little acclaim. Our Gypsy tango version of "When Doves Cry" was our biggest hit.But we were not destined for greatness. #Quote by Daniel Handler

Greatness quotes by Grenville Kleiser
#156. Let your desire for truth transcend all minor considerations. Ignorance is invariably confident. The man of knowledge learns to realize his own needs. Be honest and severe in your self-appraisal. Learn the art of learning, and you are well on the way to achievement. True greatness is reflective, not assertive. #Quote by Grenville Kleiser
Greatness quotes by Jon Meacham

#158. To make an epoch in the world, two conditions are manifestly essential-a good head and a great inheritance. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Greatness quotes by Bret Easton Ellis
#159. My books have all been very deeply felt. You don't spend eight years of your life working on a trendy knockoff. In that sense I've been serious. But I don't do lots of things that other serious writers do. I don't write book reviews. I don't sit on panels about the state of the novel. I don't go to writer conferences. I don't teach writing seminars. I don't hang out at Yaddo or MacDowell. I'm not concerned with my reputation as a writer and where I stand relative to other writers. I'm not competitive or professionally ambitious. I don't think about my work and my career in an overarching or systematic way. I don't think about myself, as I think most writers do, as progressing toward some ideal of greatness. There's no grand plan. All I know is that I write the books I want to write. All that other stuff is meaningless to me. #Quote by Bret Easton Ellis
Greatness quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#160. Pretension may sit still, but cannot act. Pretension never feigned an act of real greatness. Pretension never wrote an Iliad, nordrove back Xerxes, nor christianized the world, nor abolished slavery. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Greatness quotes by Steve Maraboli
#161. Your dream is a reality that is waiting for you to materialize. Today is a new day! Don't let your history interfere with your destiny! Learn from your past so that it can empower your present and propel you to greatness #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Greatness quotes by Horia Sima
#162. There is no doubt, that in this world, there are all sorts of people who look nice, but are empty inside; who do not feel either moral or spiritual aspirations in addition to the physical gifts with which nature blessed them ... But Corneliu Codreanu, his magnificient physique corresponds to an exceptional inner wholeness. Exclamations of admiration from men left him indifferent. Praise angered him. He had only a fighter's greatness and the ambition of great reformers... The characteristic of his soul was goodness. If you want to penetrate the initial motive which prompted Corneliu Codreanu to throw in a fight so hard and almost desperate, the best answer is that he did it out of compassion for suffering people. His heart bled with thousands of injuries to see the misery in which peasants and workers struggled. His love for the people - unlimited! He was sensitive to any suffering the working masses endured. He had a cult for the humble, and showed an infinite attention to their aspirations and their hopes. The smallest window, the most trivial complaint, were examined with the same seriousness with which he addressed grave political problems. #Quote by Horia Sima
Greatness quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#163. Throw a champion into the ocean, and he'll swim.
Throw a champion into the pit, and he'll climb.
Throw him off a cliff, and he'll grow wings.
Throw him into a furnace, and he'll become gold. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Greatness quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#164. Speaking generally, no man appears great to his contemporaries, for the same reason that no man is great to his servants
both know too much of him. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Greatness quotes by John Earl Shoaff
#165. The true mark of greatness is not found in what a person does with their own life. It is found in helping others discover that, they too, can become great. #Quote by John Earl Shoaff

Greatness quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#174. Like a last signpost to the other path, Napoleon appeared, the most isolated and late-born man there has even been, and in him the problem of the noble ideal as such made flesh
one might well ponder what kind of problem it is; Napoleon this synthesis of the inhuman and the superhuman #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche

Greatness quotes by Clement Ogedegbe
#190. No nation becomes great without first eradicating laziness from the lives of its citizens. A nation could be blessed with all the natural resources and potentials but if that nation does not destroy laziness and revive hard work in its citizens, that nation will be as underdeveloped and economically recessed as if it has no resources and potentials whatsoever. #Quote by Clement Ogedegbe
Greatness quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#191. Though my work may be menial, though my contribution may be small, I can perform it with dignity and offer it with unselfishness. My talents may not be great, but I can use them to bless the lives of others ... The goodness of the world in which we live is the accumulated goodness of many small and seemingly inconsequential acts. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley

Greatness quotes by Ann Curry
#194. Rare is the book that can actually transform us into better, more fulfilled people. Having combed through the research and documented case studies all over the world, Kristof and WuDunn present the clearest view I have ever seen of the human soul. A Path Appears tells us whether we are intrinsically good, why specific ways we parent our newborns help predict their chances for success, and how we can live lives of greater significance. This book, full of rich and riveting true stories, reminds us that human greatness is all around us, and even within us, if we dare to look. #Quote by Ann Curry
Greatness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita

#196. I'm sure you know a lot of people who were born into privilege and amounted to absolutely nothing. We all have greatness within us. So it is really important for everyone to figure out what God put us on Earth to do, and steer clear of the seven pervasive lies that often blindside people. #Quote by Farrah Gray

#199. Those who envy you inadvertently admit to being inferior to you. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Greatness quotes by Richard Hamming
#200. Most people like to believe something is or is not true. Great scientists tolerate ambiguity very well. They believe the theory enough to go ahead; they doubt it enough to notice the errors and faults so they can step forward and create the new replacement theory. If you believe too much you'll never notice the flaws; if you doubt too much you won't get started. It requires a lovely balance. #Quote by Richard Hamming
