Do You Wanna Be Great?

As i celebrate my first year in blogging, i decided to research some quotes about greatness and post them here. May these quotes inspire you not just today but through out this year.

but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks 
as though 
they were great and noble.”

some are born great, some achieve greatness, 
and some have greatness thrust upon them. "
William Shakespeare

"By constant self-discipline 
and self-control 
you can develop greatness of character."

"Every day, people settle for less than they deserve. 
They are only partially living or at best living a partial life. 
Every human being has the potential for greatness."

"Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, 
or half their greatness goes unnoticed."

but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals."

or eminence who lay abed late in the morning."

how can we dream it?"

This may not be happiness, 
but it is greatness."

and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, 
for everything in heaven and earth is yours. 
Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; 
you are exalted as head over all."

compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord,
