Freeman, Robert

The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.

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.
Francis, Clarence

Angelou, Maya

Virgil

14.

Hall, Manly

Keller, Helen

Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
