quote 0019

“Do not despair, my son; once was a grain of sand that lamented for being an ignored atom in the desert; in the end of a few years became a diamond and today is the most beautiful ornament in the crown of India’s King.”

Those words left me impressed, I was the grain of sand, and I decided to become a diamond. p. 74

– Voltaire – Zadig, or The Book of Fate (1747)
