James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Logan
 
  A millstone and a man’s heart are kept constantly revolving; where they have nothing to grind, they grind and fray away their own substance.  1
  Leichter trägt, was er trägt, / Wer Geduld zur Bürde legt—He bears what he bears more lightly who adds patience to the burden.  2
  Sich selbst bekämpfen ist der allerschwerste Krieg; / Sich selbst besiegen ist der allerschönste Sieg—To maintain a conflict with one’s self is the hardest of all wars; to overcome one’s self is the noblest of all victories.  3
