that they are wiser than they, and before the young had discovered

profited them to carry on the imposture.
W. Somerset Maugham

but because people refuse to see it.

When you come right down to it all you have is yourself.
The sun is a thousand rays in your belly. All the rest is nothing.
A good idea will keep you awake during the morning,
but a great idea will keep you awake during the night.
Marilyn Vos Savant

And start dying little by little, piece by piece,
Some guys come home from work and wash up,
And go racinÂ´ in the streets
Bruce Springsteen – Racing in the Streets
People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success
because they don’t know when to quit. Most men succeed because
they are determined to.
