Majority Quotations

Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.
Napoleon Hill

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
Mark Twain

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
