[You Differ From A Great Man In Only One Respect: The Great Man Was Once A Very Little Man, But He Developed One Important Quality: He Recognized The Smallness And Narrowness Of His Thoughts And Actions. Under The Pressure Of Some Task That Meant A Great Deal To Him, He Learned To See How His Smallness, His Pettiness Endangered His Happiness. In Other Words, A Great Man Knows When And In What Way He Is A Little Man. A Little Man Does Not Know He Is Little And Is Afraid To Know. He Hides His Pettiness And Narrowness Behind Illusions Of Strength And Greatness, Someone Else's Strength And Greatness. He's Proud Of His Great Generals But Not Of Himself. He Admires An Idea He Has Not Had, Not One He Has Had. The Less He Understands Something, The More Firmly He Believes In It. And The Better He Understands An Idea, The Less He Believes In It.]

Quotes About Realitatea

"Ca era dimineata ori seara, vineri ori duminica ― ii era totuna; era la fel, aceeasi durere surda, chinuitoare, care nu-l lasa o clipa; mereu constiinta vietii care se stinge fara putinta de impotrivire, dar care mai dainuie; moartea care se apropia, cumplita si hada ― numai ea singura era realitatea, iar celelalte toate...minciuna. La ce bun sa mai tii socoteala zilelor, saptamanilor, ceasurilor ?" - Author: Leo Tolstoy

Quotes About Love Never Fading

"He climbed up behind Hazel. Arion took off across the water, the nymphs screaming behind them, and Narcissus shouting, "Bring me back! Bring me back!" As Arion raced towards the Argo II, Leo remembered what Nemesis had said about Echo and Narcissus: Perhaps theyll teach you a lesson. Leo had thought shed meant Narcissus, but now he wondered if the real lesson for him was Echo--invisible to her brethren, cursed to love someone who didnt care for her. A seventh wheel. He tried to shake that thought. He clung to the sheet of bronze like a shield. He was determined never to forget Echos face. She deserved at least one person who saw her and knew how good she was. Leo closed his eyes, but the memory of her smile was already fading." - Author: Rick Riordan
