Words of Men
-John Barrymore, 1882-1942
"A man is at his tallest when he stoops to help a child."
"A man is not where he lives, but where he loves."
"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."

a 1624 metaphysical poem by John Donne
