Where love is, there God is also.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
That service is the noblest which is rendered for its own sake.
