Something random and for the fun of it...enjoy.
The common man is common because his work, his thoughts, and his actions are no different than his neighbor. He labors day and night in aimless work and play, and seldom leaves room for personal development. The journalist, Isidor Feinstein Stone stated: “…in Rome the common man was treated like a dog. In America he sets the tone. This is the first country where the common man could stand erect."
The rich man's greatest characteristic is greed. He is the man large in income and large in expenditure but little in moral and little in obligation. The 19th century American author and abolitionist, Henry David Thoreau described one class of the rich men: “The rich man is always sold to the institution which makes him rich. Absolutely speaking, the more money, the less virtue.”
The true rich man–the business man, he deals in work he loves. His wealth is acquired because he is commits to the power of compounding. Thoreau also defined a true rich man as one who “…enjoys the fruits of riches, who summer and winter forever can find delight in his own thoughts.”
The poor man is the man who has given up; he is defeated. Author, Sydney Madwed said, “Poor is the man who does not know his own intrinsic worth and tends to measure everything by relative value.”
The just man deals righteously. He gives freely and takes sparingly. He has many friends because he mastered the art of being virtuous. The 18th-century English writer Samuel Richardson explained, “A good man will not engage even in a cause, without examining the justice of it.”
The great man, the rarest, he is obsessed and knows what nearly all cannot fathom. Emerson declared, “I count him a great man who inhabits a higher sphere of thought, into which other men rise with labor and difficulty.” Often, not until the death of a great man, we call him a genius.
