Isaac Bashevis Singer
Our nation was created in ways that allow human potential to prosper, and it created the greatest nation for people in the history of humanity.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
We must not measure greatness from the mansion down, but from the manger up.
If you only believe that you're an artist when you have a big advance in your pocket and a single coming out, I would say that's quite soulless. You have to have a sense of your own greatness and your own ability from a very deep place inside you. I am the one with the litmus test in my hands of what people need to hear next.
No man has come to true greatness who has not felt that his life belongs to his race, and that which God gives to him, He gives him for mankind.

The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.
Governor, why wouldn't anyone want to say the Pledge of Allegiance, unless they detested their own country or were ignorant of its greatness?
We shall never resolve the enigma of the relation between the negative foundations of greatness and that greatness itself.
Some great men owe most of their greatness to the ability of detecting in those they destine for their tools the exact quality of strength that matters for their work.
I realize now that I've hoped to be great - as an actress, as a mother - because I want to embody the greatness of women who didn't get to be all they could have been. Their dignity, their courage, and their brilliance make me strive to be better. They're a part of me.

I want to be known as 'The Big Shakespeare.' It was Shakespeare that said, 'Some men are born great, some achieve greatness, some have greatness thrust upon them.'
Martin Luther King, Jr.
