Famous quotes containing the words life and/or career:

    I made up my mind long ago that life was too short to do anything for myself that I could pay others to do for me.
    W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1966)

    A black boxer’s career is the perfect metaphor for the career of a black male. Every day is like being in the gym, sparring with impersonal opponents as one faces the rudeness and hostility that a black male must confront in the United States, where he is the object of both fear and fascination.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
