Man

There is no such thing as a "self-made" man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success. - George Matthew Adams
Death is as near to the young as to the old; here is all the difference: death stands behind the young man’s back, before the old man’s face. - Thomas Adams
A man knows not what is in the heart of his fellow. - Ahikar or Ahiqar
The beauty of man is in his faithfulness, and his hatefulness is the lying of his lips. - Ahikar or Ahiqar
The angry man always thinks he can do more than he can. - Albertano of Brescia
A man is known by the company his mind keeps. - Thomas Bailey Aldrich
That poverty which is not the daughter of the spirit is but the mother of shame and reproach; it is a disreputation that drowns all the other good parts that are in man; it is a disposition to all kind of evil; it is a man’s greatest foe. - Mateo Alemán, fully Mateo Alemán y de Enero
Heaven will permit no man to secure happiness by crime. -

A man may as certainly miscarry by his seeming righteousness and supposed graces as by his gross sins. - Joseph Alleine
