A Quote by Patrick Jake "P.J." O'Rourke on books, brothers, celebrity, determination, diet, exercise, imagination, libraries, life, majorities, population, and women

Imagine of all of life were determined by majority rule. Every meal would be a pizza. Every pair of pants, even those in a Brooks Brothers suit, would be stonewashed denim. Celebrity diet and exercise books would be the only thing on library shelves. And-since women are a majority of the population-we'd all be married to Mel Gibson.

A Quote by Napoleon Hill on defeat, life, logic, majorities, men, and success

Before success comes in any man's life he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do.
