Ultimately, he had learned through his experience with John Purroy Mitchel, it all came down to a question of power. An idea was no good without power behind it, power to make people adopt it, power to reward them when they did, power to crush them when they didn’t.
— Robert A. Caro, The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York

Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.
— Pablo Picasso

Some lack the fickleness to live as they wish and just live as they have begun.
— Seneca
