Real greatness has nothing to do with a man's sphere.
It does not lie in the magnitude of his outward agency, in the extent of the effects he produces.
The greatest men may do comparatively little abroad.
Perhaps the greatest in our city at this moment are buried in obscurity.
Grandeur of character lies wholly in force of soul, that is, in the force of thought, moral principle, and love, and this may be found in the humblest conditions of life.
W. Henry Channing
