Conflict
Engrave this Quote Any coward can fight a battle when he's sure of winning, but give me the man who has pluck to fight when he's sure of losing. That's my way, sir; and there are many victories worse than a defeat.

Curiosity
Engrave this Quote We must not inquire too curiously into motives... They are apt to become feeble in the utterance: the aroma is mixed with the grosser air. We must keep the germinating grain away from the light.

Disability, Handicaps
Engrave this Quote The sense of an entailed disadvantage -- the deformed foot doubtfully hidden by the shoe, makes a restlessly active spiritual yeast, and easily turns a self-centered, unloving nature into an Ishmaelite.

Ego
Engrave this Quote The egoism which enters into our theories does not affect their sincerity; rather, the more our egoism is satisfied, the more robust is our belief.

Envy / Jealousy
Engrave this Quote Jealousy is never satisfied with anything short of an omniscience that would detect the subtlest fold of the heart.
