Gracefulness is to the body what understanding is to the mind.
Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Men do not care how nobly they live, but only how long, although it is within the reach of every man to live nobly, but within no man's power to live long.
It is wonderful what strength of purpose and boldness and energy of will are roused by the assurance that we are doing our duty.
Sir Walter Scott
