Ali Ibn-Abi-Talib

Men are more like the times they live in than they are like their fathers.

A man who is "of sound mind" is one who keeps the inner madman under lock and key.

Alfred Lord Tennyson

He makes no friend who never made a foe.

Lawrence of Arabia

Half a calamity is better than a whole one.

Ernest Hemingway

As you get older, it is harder to have heroes, but it is sort of necessary.

Herbert Prochnow

An occasional weakness in a great man is a comfort to the rest of us.

It is bad enough to know the past; it would be intolerable to know the future.

Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought.
