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 (1819–1892)

    Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
    Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919)
