“To be under pressure is inescapable. Pressure takes place through all the world; war, siege, the worries of state. We all know men who grumble under these pressures and complain. They are cowards.

It is the pressure which refines and makes him noble.”
“Learn to dance, so when you get to heaven the angels know what to do with you.”
“Truth is not private property.”
“The truth is like a lion; you don’t have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.”
“God provides the wind, Man must raise the sail.”
“Hope has two beautiful daughters; their names are Anger and Courage. Anger at the way things are, and Courage to see that they do not remain as they are.”
