When you're a self-made man, you start very early in life. In my case it was at 9 years old when I started bringing income into the family. You get a drive that's a little different, maybe a little stronger, than somebody who inherited.
A fool flatters himself, a wise man flatters the fool.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
A man in debt is so far a slave.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his well-being, to risk his body, to risk his life, in a great cause.
If your man is a sports enthusiast, you may have to resign yourself to his spouting off in a monotone on a prize fight, football game or pennant race.
If a man knows not what harbor he seeks, any wind is the right wind.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I had plenty of pimples as a kid. One day I fell asleep in the library. When I woke up, a blind man was reading my face.
What a man does for pay is of little significance. What he is, as a sensitive instrument responsive to the world's beauty, is everything!
H. P. Lovecraft
It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving, it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe.

If you were to offer a thirsty man all wisdom, you would not please him more than if you gave him a drink.
Men always talk about the most important things to perfect strangers. In the perfect stranger we perceive man himself; the image of a God is not disguised by resemblances to an uncle or doubts of wisdom of a mustache.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Society, being codified by man, decrees that woman is inferior; she can do away with this inferiority only by destroying the male's superiority.
Simone de Beauvoir
Ignorance is the softest pillow on which a man can rest his head.
Michel de Montaigne
He who has never failed somewhere, that man can not be great.
Power over a man's subsistence is power over his will.
Wise kings generally have wise counselors; and he must be a wise man himself who is capable of distinguishing one.
Let me be a free man - free to travel, free to stop, free to work.
Man finds it hard to get what he wants, because he does not want the best; God finds it hard to give, because He would give the best, and man will not take it.
Ordinary readers, forgive my paradoxes: one must make them when one reflects; and whatever you may say, I prefer being a man with paradoxes than a man with prejudices.
I may sometimes be willing to teach for nothing, but if paid at all, I shall never do a man's work for less than a man's pay.
When I say artist I mean the man who is building things - creating molding the earth - whether it be the plains of the west - or the iron ore of Penn. It's all a big game of construction - some with a brush - some with a shovel - some choose a pen.
For this is the mark of a wise and upright man, not to rail against the gods in misfortune.
The history of man is the history of crimes, and history can repeat. So information is a defence. Through this we can build, we must build, a defence against repetition.
Politeness and civility are the best capital ever invested in business. Large stores, gilt signs, flaming advertisements, will all prove unavailing if you or your employees treat your patrons abruptly. The truth is, the more kind and liberal a man is, the more generous will be the patronage bestowed upon him.
P. T. Barnum
Martin Luther King, Jr.
