There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism.
It's when ordinary people rise above the expectations and seize the opportunity that milestones truly are reached.
Truth will rise above falsehood as oil above water.
Rise above sectional interests and private ambitions... Pass from matter to spirit. Matter is diversity; spirit is light, life and unity.
It's a fine thing to rise above pride, but you must have pride in order to do so.
