No man is truly great, who is great only in his life-time. The test of greatness is the page of history.

William Hazlitt, on the Pleasure of Hating

No man learns to know his inmost nature by introspection, for he rates himself sometimes too low, and often too high, by his own measurement. Man knows himself only by comparing himself with other men; it is life that touches his genuine worth.

Goethe

No man loves life like him that's growing old.

Sophocles

No man receives the full culture of a man in whom the sensibility to the beautiful is not cherished; and there is no condition of life from which it should be excluded. Of all luxuries this is the cheapest, and the most at hand, and most important to those conditions where coarse labor tends to give grossness to the mind.

William Ellery Channing

Judge Gideon J. Tucker

No matter what we have come through, or how many perils we have safely passed, or how many imperfect and jagged - in some places perhaps irreparably - our life has been, we cannot in our heart of hearts imagine how it could have been different.

Randolph Silliman Bourne

No matter what we want of life we have to give up something in order to get it.

Raymond Holliwell

No matter what you have presently. God still have more in stock for you. But you are expected to be diligent and proactive. Besides, he (God) never expects you to quit growing or expanding in life. Do remember, even the scripture says in (Proverbs 4 : 18) it says, the path of the just is like a shining light that shines more and more and never less unto the perfect day. That's what the scripture says. And that infers evidently, you still have more to achieve or acquire as far as you are still breathing in and out.

Emeasoba George

No matter where you go or what you do, you live your entire life within the confines of your head.

Terry Josephson

No one finds life worth living; he must make it worth living.

Author Unknown

No one is done for/finished until the person involved thinks/says so. Listen up, life is a matter of choice of mentality, mindset and utterance. I mean, you have a sole right/choice to decide either to think/speak hopefully/positively or hopelessly/negatively. Yes of course, you've got the right/choice. But I urge you as usual.

Harry Emerson Fosdick

No thoughtful man ever came to the end of his life, and had time and a little space of calm from which to look back upon it, who did not know and acknowledge that it was what he had done unselfishly and for others, and nothing else, that satisfied him in the retrospect, and made him feel that he had played the man.
