An idealist is a person who helps other people to be prosperous.
I'm an idealist. I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way.
Man is ready to die for an idea, provided that idea is not quite clear to him.
Just as the water of the streams we see is small in amount compared to that which flows underground, so the idealism which becomes visible is small in amount compared with what men and women bear locked in their hearts. . . . To unbind what is bound, to bring the underground waters to the surface: mankind is waiting and longing for such as can do that.
