14 Famous Life Quotes Every Man Should Write On His Wall

Roosevelt Quote On Wall

Famous life quotes can be used as motivation, inspiration and express what the average man can’t put into words.

Quotes Every Man Should Know, is a collection of famous life quotes from some of the most brilliant minds in history, jammed into a handy pocket-sized pack of inspiration. The collection is perfect for those moments when a man just needs a little encouragement, a quick ego boost or just a reaffirmation in this trip called life.

Here are fourteen of our favorite quotes from the book. Grab a Sharpie, a blank wall, and start writing.
