- Margaret Lee Runbeck
The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has.
The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success.
- Hamilton Wright Mabie
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
