"It isn’t fair: the caterpillar does all the work, and the butterfly gets all the glory."
"All greatness of character is dependent on individuality. The man who has no other existence than that which he partakes in common with all around him, will never have any other than an existence of mediocrity."
James Fenimore Cooper
"Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another."
