„Let it be a dream, so be it, but that real life of which you make so much I had meant to extinguish by suicide, and my dream, my dream — oh, it revealed to me a different life, renewed, grand and full of power!“

—  Fyodor Dostoyevsky Russian author 1821 - 1881
Context: Yes, I dreamed a dream, my dream of the third of November. They tease me now, telling me it was only a dream. But does it matter whether it was a dream or reality, if the dream made known to me the truth? If once one has recognized the truth and seen it, you know that it is the truth and that there is no other and there cannot be, whether you are asleep or awake. Let it be a dream, so be it, but that real life of which you make so much I had meant to extinguish by suicide, and my dream, my dream — oh, it revealed to me a different life, renewed, grand and full of power!

„Life wasn't meant to be easy.“

—  Malcolm Fraser Australian politician, 22nd Prime Minister of Australia 1930 - 2015
Fraser's best known phrase, generally taken as a gloomy explanation of life's difficulties, but for him rather it was a reason to take on difficult tasks. Not widely recognised as being in fact a paraphrase of a line from George Bernard Shaw's play Back to Methuselah: "Life is not meant to be easy, my child; but take courage: it can be delightful." Well known from his Alfred Deakin lecture speech (20 July 1971) https://web.archive.org/web/20070210111307/http://www.unimelb.edu.au/malcolmfraser/speeches/nonparliamentary/towards2000.html, he'd actually used it or known the sentiment for many years prior; according to an interview for the Australian Biography project (1994) http://www.australianbiography.gov.au/fraser/interview6.html.)
