It is hard to go beyond your public. If they are satisfied with cheap performance, you will not easily arrive at better. If they know what is good, and require it. you will aspire and burn until you achieve it. But from time to time, in history, men are born a whole age too soon.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) U.S. poet, essayist and lecturer.
If a man or woman is born ten years sooner or later, their whole aspect and performance shall be different.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832) German poet, novelist and dramatist.
We never do anything well till we cease to think about the manner of doing it.
William Hazlitt (1778-1830) British essayist.
Too aim is not enough, you must hit!
Wise to resolve, patient to perform.
Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805) German dramatist, poet and historian.
