Conceal a flaw, and the world will imagine the worst.
Martial, Marcus Valerius quotes
- Marcus Clarke – wilderness "Some see no beauty in our trees without shade, our flowers without perfume, our birds who cannot fly, and our beasts who have not yet learned to walk on all fours. But the dweller in the wilderness acknowledges the subtle charm of this fantastic land of monstrosities. He becomes familiar with the beauty of loneliness." ~Marcus Clarke, 1846-1881, writer, poet
- Marcus Lamb – race "The race does not always go to the swift, but to the ones who keep running." ~Marcus Lamb
- "It doesn’t matter what we want to… "It doesn't matter what we want to accomplish in life....There is no substitute in the world that beats true Hard Work and true Dedication!" - Marcus Mayo
