    Master of the universe but not of myself, I am the only rebel against my absolute power.
    Pierre Corneille (1606–1684)

    A penniless man who has no ties to bind him is master of himself at any rate, but a luckless wretch who is in love no longer belongs to himself, and may not take his own life. Love makes us almost sacred in our own eyes; it is the life of another that we revere within us; then and so begins for us the cruelest trouble of all.
    HonorĂ© De Balzac (1799–1850)

    There are many skillful apprentices, but few master workmen.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
