Reputation is what men and women think of us; character is what God and angels know of us.

Business
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

Optimism
The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.

Beginning
We have it in our power to begin the world over again.
