Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.

They did not know it was impossible so they did it.

Knowledge kills action; action requires the veils of illusion

Man is so made that when anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish.

Great things are accomplished by men who are not conscious of the impotence of man. Such insensitiveness is precious.
