I consider that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose.
Arthur Conan Doyle
Send forth the child and childish man together, and blush for the pride that libels our own old happy state, and gives its title to an ugly and distorted image.
If thou wilt make a man happy, add not unto his riches but take away from his desires.
Simplicity is the most deceitful mistress that ever betrayed man.
A great city, whose image dwells in the memory of man, is the type of some great idea. Rome represents conquest; Faith hovers over the towers of Jerusalem; and Athens embodies the pre-eminent quality of the antique world, Art.
A good man can be stupid and still be good. But a bad man must have brains.
One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than a hundred teaching it.
The sea, the great unifier, is man's only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: we are all in the same boat.

Why has government been instituted at all? Because the passions of man will not conform to the dictates of reason and justice without constraint.
A great man is made up of qualities that meet or make great occasions.
James Russell Lowell
Be careful in dealing with a man who cares nothing for comfort or promotion, but is simply determined to do what he believes to be right. He is a dangerous uncomfortable enemy, because his body, which you can always conquer, gives you little purchase upon his soul.
Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man.
I think every chef, not just in America, but across the world, has a double-edged sword - two jackets, one that's driven, a self-confessed perfectionist, thoroughbred, hate incompetence and switch off the stove, take off the jacket and become a family man.
Man is what he reads.
Better to be a strong man with a weak point, than to be a weak man without a strong point. A diamond with a flaw is more valuable that a brick without a flaw.
William J. H. Boetcker

P. T. Barnum
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
