Victor Hugo – Fame must have enemies

Share this quote:
Victor HugoYou have enemies? Why, it is the story of every man who has done a great deed or created a new idea. It is the cloud which thunders around everything that shines. Fame must have enemies, as light must have gnats. Do not bother yourself about it; disdain. Keep your mind serene as you keep your life clear.

Bernard BaruchLet us not be deceived — we are today in the midst of a cold war. Our enemies are to be
found abroad and at home. Let us never forget this: Our unrest is the heart of their success. The peace of the world is the hope and the goal of our political system; it is the despair and
defeat of those who stand against us.

Fred Rogers – Foregiveness is a strange thing

Share this quote:
Fred RogersForgiveness is a strange thing. It can sometimes be easier to forgive our enemies than our friends. It can be hardest of all to forgive people we love. Like all of life’s important coping skills, the ability to forgive and the capacity to let go of resentments most likely take root very early in our lives.
