Kahlil Gibran ( 1883 - 1931 ), Lebanese-American writer, artist, philosopher: "To belittle, you have to be little...In every winter's heart there is a quivering spring, and behind the veil of each night there is a shining dawn...If you love somebody, let them go, for if they return, they were always yours. If they don't, the never were...Beauty is not in the face; beauty is in a light in the heart."

Eric Trump ( 1984 - ), son of Donald J. Trump, businessman, activist: "Out of all my friends, I believe I'm the only kid whose dad made us work to cut rebars; we laid bricks in construction sites and did other real work every summer for minimum wage. Our dad said that it's important in the future that when we tell people to dig a hole, that you personally know how long it will take to dig that hole...People think we're only into big buildings, but iconic houses have always been the real interest. We own 11 of the world's top hotels and all the support services needed to keep them running. Trump properties have to be the best - clubs, hotels, houses...Our father always made us work. I think that's the greatest thing a parent could ever do."
