Famous quotes containing the word man:
“We say that every man is entitled to be valued by his best moment. We measure our friends so. We know, they have intervals of folly, whereof we take no heed, but wait the reappearings of the genius, which are sure and beautiful.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
