ABSTRACT
The article presents quotes from notable people about the business of life. According to B. C. Forbes, founder of "FORBES" magazine, one's character is one's own handiwork. Former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln likens character to a tree, and reputation, to its shadow. Anne Frank says parents can only give good advice or put their children on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.
