My honour was not yielded, but conquered merely. - actually it's from Shakespeare attributed to Cleopatra.
The cricket hummed, with the temperature of the night air. I, in my chair, hummed along with it, finding a voice, low, in the tempo of the chill. Part of me wanted to listen forever, another part wanted to tell the world how glorious it was. Both actions cancelled out the other, and in that, the whole of the world is played.

Mahatma Gandhi
I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test: Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen and ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to swaraj for the hungry and spiritually starving millions? Then you will find your doubts and your self melting away.
— Mahatma Gandhi
