Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them, for it alone takes and completes them by what is deepest in themselves.
What helps luck is a habit of watching for opportunities, of having a patient, but restless mind, of sacrificing one's ease or vanity, of uniting a love of detail to foresight, and of passing through hard times bravely and cheerfully. - Charles Victor Cherbuliez
The grandeur of a profession is...above all, uniting men: there is only one true luxury, that of human relationships. - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
