quotes 1 -26 -13

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

The greater the difficulty, the more the glory in surmounting it.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

History is only the register of crimes and misfortunes.

Although not meant in this mundane way, quote one and two are very appropriate for the slippery conditions here.

Quotes three and four could have severely shortened a paper I had to write a long time ago.

That's one reason the quotes are so appealing; often they are relevant to or can be applied to one's personal circumstances. Sometimes it's comforting, other times distressing to know that whatever happens to you has probably already happened to somebody else!
