Michel de Montaigne
There are some defeats more triumphant than victories.

There is something in the pang of change more than the heart can bear, unhappiness remembering happiness.

Gelett Burgess
There is work that is work and there is play that is play; there is play that is work and work that is play. And in only one of these lies happiness.

Anne Frank
