Greatness Quotes

Quote of the Day

But be not afraid of greatness: some men are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them (Twelfth Night, Act 2 Scene 5)
View quotes by William Shakespeare

If any man seeks for greatness, let him forget greatness and ask for truth, and he will find both.

View quotes by Horace Mann

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.
View quotes by John Gardner

False greatness is unsociable and remote: conscious of its own frailty, it hides, or at least averts its face, and reveals itself only enough to create an illusion and not be recognized as the meanness that it really is. True greatness is free, kind, familiar and popular; it lets itself be touched and handled, it loses nothing by being seen at close quarters; the better one knows it, the more one admires it.
View quotes by Jean De La Bruyere

I want things to be the best they can be. I want greatness.
