No man has come to true greatness who has not felt in some degree that his life belongs to his race, and that what God gives him He gives him for mankind. Phillips Brooks.Sermons: The Purpose and Use of Comfort.
The greatest man is he who chooses the Right with invincible resolution, who resists the sorest temptations from within and without, who bears the heaviest burdens cheerfully, who is calmest in storms and most fearless under menace and frowns, whose reliance on truth, on virtue, on God, is most unfaltering. I believe this greatness to be most common among the multitude, whose names are never heard. William E. Channing.Every Man Great.
