The little man is not to be blamed for being little. He is to be blamed for remaining little. The great man is nothing but the little man who at some point says, “It’s no fun remaining little”—and he is born exactly similar to the little man.

Now, that puts the little man in the dock. If he could say that he doesn’t want to remain little, why couldn’t you? If no greatness were possible at all, then there was no justification in pointing fingers at littleness. It is materially proven in the shape, form, and figure of the great man. If he could do it, why couldn’t you?

The great man is also a little man. Had the great man just been great, then the little man is allowed to stay little. But the great man is not just great—he purposefully, deliberately, decides not to remain little. And if he can decide that, if he can impose that kind of determination and discipline upon himself, why can’t you?
