Famous quotes containing the words literature and/or prize:
“Our leading men are not of much account and never have been, but the average of the people is immense, beyond all history. Sometimes I think in all departments, literature and art included, that will be the way our superiority will exhibit itself. We will not have great individuals or great leaders, but a great average bulk, unprecedentedly great.”
—Walt Whitman (18191892)
“Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”
—Theodore Roosevelt (18581919)
