A little body does often harbor a great soul.
Great men are rarely isolated mountain peaks; they are the summits of ranges.
伟人很少是突兀的山峰;他们是众山中的最高峰. ----T.W.Higginson 希金森
A man can die but once.
He lives long that lives well.
We prefer to die a hero, rather than live a slave.
We grow neither better nor worse as we grow old but more and more like ourselves.
Better a glorious death than a shameful life.
Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.
生活中没有可怕的东西,只有需要理解的东西.---Marie Curie 居里夫人
Chiefly the mold of a man's fortune is in his own hands.
Interests are anchors, and I believe they will bring peace and even happiness in the end.
There is a great man who makes every man feel small. But the real great man is the man who makes every man feel great.
A great man is always willing to be little.
Men are afraid of becoming famous, just as pigs afraid of fattening. /Fame portends trouble for men just as fattening does for pigs. /A famed person and a fattened pig are alike in danger.
The secret of success is constancy of purpose.
