Be free all worthy spirits, and stretch yourselves, for greatness and for height.
I want greatness.
Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals.
All greatness of character is dependent on individuality. The man who has no other existence than that which he partakes in common with all around him, will never have any other than an existence of mediocrity.
James F. Cooper
In art, at a certain level, there is no 'better than.' It's just about trying to operate for yourself on the most supreme level, artistically, that you can and hoping that people get it. Trusting that, just because of the way people are built and how interconnected we are, greatness will translate and symmetry will be recognised.
The only greatness for man is immortality.
When Ke$ha tries to rap like L'Trimm, she sounds like any ordinary lonely teenage girl stuck in a nowhere town, singing along to her radio and dreaming of a party where she's the star.

Tonight, we gather to affirm the greatness of our nation - not because of the height of our skyscrapers, or the power of our military, or the size of our economy. Our pride is based on a very simple premise, summed up in a declaration made over two hundred years ago.
I never knew a man come to greatness or eminence who lay abed late in the morning.
To vilify a great man is the readiest way in which a little man can himself attain greatness.
Edgar Allan Poe

Ask yourself whether the dream of heaven and greatness should be waiting for us in our graves - or whether it should be ours here and now and on this earth.
Man's unhappiness, as I construe, comes of his greatness; it is because there is an Infinite in him, which with all his cunning he cannot quite bury under the Finite.

Isaac Bashevis Singer
Egypt gave birth to what later would become known as 'Western Civilization,' long before the greatness of Greece and Rome.
John Henrik Clarke
Integrity is the first step to true greatness. Men love to praise, but are slow to practice it. To maintain it in high places costs self-denial; in all places it is liable to opposition, but its end is glorious, and the universe will yet do it homage.
As machines become more and more efficient and perfect, so it will become clear that imperfection is the greatness of man.
It's only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home - it's only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love.
Goodness does not consist in greatness, but greatness in goodness.
A retentive memory may be a good thing, but the ability to forget is the true token of greatness.
Those who occupy their minds with small matters, generally become incapable of greatness.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
America's greatness has been the greatness of a free people who shared certain moral commitments. Freedom without moral commitment is aimless and promptly self-destructive.
