But how do you solve crimes which no longer have traditional motives? — Christopher Fowler

Envy may lead to bitterness, or to a decision to compete with a rival and the production of a masterpiece. As — Alain De Botton

If you refuse to accept the limitation in yourself, you will be unable to grow beyond this point. — Eleanor Roosevelt
