"Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries.
Without them, humanity cannot survive"
"There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth;
not going all the way, and not starting"
"Beauty is truth's smile when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror"
"The whole secret of existence is to have no fear.
Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one.
Only the moment you reject all help, you are freed"
"And there comes a time when one must take a position
that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it
because conscience tells him it is right"
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
