Parkhurst, Charles H.
Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.
Men show their characters in nothing more clearly than in what they think laughable.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
All men are alike in their lower natures; it is in their higher characters that they differ.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
You can buy a person's time; you can buy their physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of their skilled muscular motions per hour. But you can not buy enthusiasm... you can not buy loyalty. You can not buy the devotion of hearts, minds, or souls. You must earn these.

If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.
