What light is to the eyes - what air is to the lungs - what love is to the heart, liberty is to the soul of man.
The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.
Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers.
A great man does not seek applause or place; he seeks for truth; he seeks the road to happiness, and what he ascertains, he gives to others.
Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so.
