This is unfortunately a world in which things find it difficult, frequently impossible, to live up to their names.
In order to touch the heart and gain the confidence, the assent, the adhesion, and the co-operation of the illiterate legions of the proletariat â€” and the vast majority of proletarians unfortunately still belong in this category â€” it is necessary to begin to speak to those workers not of the general sufferings of the international proletariat as a whole but of their particular, daily, altogether private misfortunes. It is necessary to speak to them of their own trade and the conditions of their work in the specific locality where they live; of the harsh conditions and long hours of their daily work, of the small pay, the meanness of their employer, the high cost of living, and how impossible it is for them properly to support and bring up a family.
"I simply state that I'm a product of a versatile mind in a restless generation-with every reason to throw my mind and pen in with the radicals. Even if, deep in my heart, I thought we were all blind atoms in a world as limited as a stroke of a pendulum, I and my sort would struggle against tradition; try, at least, to displace old cants with new ones. I've thought I was right about life at various times, but faith is difficult. One thing I know. If living isn't seeking for the grail it may be a damned amusing game.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Nothing in this world is impossible to a willing heart.
The Difficult is that which can be done immediately; the Impossible that which takes a little longer.
It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.
Goddard, Robert H.
It is not a lucky word, this name impossible; no good comes of those who have it so often in their mouths.
A man's limitations are not the things he wants to do and can t; they are the things he ought to do but doesn't. The difficult we will do eventually, the impossible will just take a little more time.
Most of the things worth doing in the world had been declared impossible before they were done.
Louis D. Brandeis
If this world were what it seems it should be, it is clear that it would be impossible for one man to enslave another.
Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire
