There is one piece of advice, in a life of study, which I think no one will object to; and that is, every now and then to be completely idle -- to do nothing at all.

I am doomed to an eternity of compulsive work. No set goal achieved satisfies. Success only breeds a new goal. The golden apple devoured has seeds. It is endless.

Eugene McCarthy

Being in politics is like being a football coach. You have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it's important.

Hermann Hesse

Eternity is a mere moment, just long enough for a joke.

Helen Hayes

My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that "achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others, and that's nice, too, but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success."

Helen Keller

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

The greatest minds are capable of the greatest vices as well as of the greatest virtues.
