A Quote by Thomas Woodrow Wilson on art, character, gifts, growth, guidance, judgment, life, men, motives, play, purpose, secrets, seriousness, spirit, and spirituality

A man is the part he plays among his fellows. He is not isolated; he cannot be. His life is made up of the relations he bears to others - is made or marred by those relations, guided by them, judged by them, expressed in them. There is nothing else upon which he can spend his spirit - nothing else that we can see. It is by these he gets his spiritual growth; it is by these we see his character revealed, his purpose, his gifts. A few (men) act as those who have mastered the secrets of a serious art, with deliberate subordination of themselves to the great end and motive of the play. These have "found themselves," and have all the ease of a perfect adjustment.

Woodrow Wilson (1856 - 1924)
