– “And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’”

– “If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch”

– “If you can keep your wits about you while all others are losing theirs and blaming you…

The world will be yours and everything in it, what’s more, you’ll be a Man, my son.”

– “Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears.”

– “He who faces no calamity gains no courage.”

– “Be slow to judge for we know little of what has been done and nothing of what has been resisted.”

– “We are the opening verse of the opening page of the chapter of endless possibilities.”

– “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten”
