“Są ludzie do pewnych spraw zrodzeni,
Którzy nim na tor prawdziwy trafią,
Nieznaczącymi się zdają
I oczekują swej godziny.

A gdy ich los postawi
Na drodze, którą obrać powinni,
Z dnia na dzień rosną i stają się
RÓŻNYMI OD INNYCH!”
Józef Ignacy Kraszewski

“Szyderstwem jest pytać odartego z sukni o pozwolenie zatrzymania jej, grożąc mu pałką nad głową.”
Józef Ignacy Kraszewski, Hrabina Cosel
