We must not measure greatness from the mansion down, but from the manger up. Video
Why so large a cost, having so short a lease, does thou upon your fading mansion spend?
He who would be useful, strong, and happy must cease to be a passive receptacle for the negative, beggarly, and impure streams of thought; and as a wise householder commands his servants and invites his guests, so must he learn to command his desires and to say, with authority, what thoughts he shall admit into the mansion of his soul.
The greatness of a man's power is the measure of his surrender.
If a man happens to find himself, he has a mansion which he can inhabit with dignity all the days of his life.
Michener, James A.
The intellect of man is forced to choose perfection of the life, or of the work, and if it take the second must refuse a heavenly mansion, raging in the dark.
William Butler Yeats
Measure not by the scale of perfection the meager product of reality.
Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von
No one becomes perfect, but some become great.
Since no one is perfect, it follows that all great deeds have been accomplished out of imperfection. Yet they were accomplished, somehow, all the same.
Bujold, Lois McMaster
The mansion should not be graced by its master, the master should grace the mansion.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.
