Frederick Douglass
“Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning.”
Frederick Douglass

Marcus Aurelius
“Receive without conceit, release without struggle.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Ohne Hast, aber ohne Rast. - Without haste, but without rest.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Robert W. Service
“Be master of your petty annoyances and conserve your energies for the big, worthwhile things. It isn't the mountain ahead that wears you out - it's the grain of sand in your shoe.”
Robert Service

Marcus Aurelius
“Asia and Europe: tiny corners of the Cosmos. Every sea: a mere drop. Mount Athos: a lump of dirt. The present moment is the smallest point in all eternity. All is microscopic, changeable, disappearing. All things come from that faraway place, either originating directly from that governing part which is common to all, or else following from it as consequences. So even the gaping jaws of the lion, deadly poison, and all harmful things like thorns or an oozing bog are products of that awesome and noble source. Do not imagine these things to be alien to that which you revere, but turn your Reason to the source of all things.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
