Revolutions are not made: they come.  A revolution is as natural as an oak tree.  It comes out of the past; its foundations are laid far back.  ~Wendell Phillips, Address, Anti-Slavery Society, 1852


We confess to little faults only to persuade ourselves that we have no great ones.  ~François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld, Maxims, 1665


Most men are more capable of great actions than of good ones.  ~Montesquieu, Variètès


I find my joy of living in the fierce and ruthless battles of life, and my pleasure comes from learning something.  ~Auguste Strindberg, Miss Julie, 1888
