His Holiness the Dalai Lama
...and though the generous benefactors of the human race are thus deprived of the applause of the world, they have the noble pleasure of seeing their work prosper in their hands."

I thought I'd start a thread to collect quotes that would fit in this forum. I'll start.
This one has always intreagued me:
"Confucius and you are both dreams, and I who say you are dreams am a dream myself. This is a paradox. Tomorrow a wise man may explain it; that tomorrow will not be for ten thousand generations."
—Chuang Tse: II

I think I shall deposit another quote on this thread...one of my favorites that comes to mind occasionally while I am here at ATS.
"A foolish consistency is the Hob Goblins of little minds, adored by little statesmen, philosophers and divines."
