On Greatness

The greatness in man consists of trying to be great, and you cannot be great if you demand of yourself to be faultless. Such a ridiculous demand results in isolation and emptiness. The true greatness in any human being lies not so much in not making a mistake as in rising above it. We are all mistake makers, but thank God, we have the power  to be mistake breakers. The capacity to rise above a mistake is the beginning of success.
