My vote is Henry Ford.

Not only the inventor of the assembly line but also a great philosopher in regards to manly success.

A few of my favorite quotes of his.

“Those who believe they can do something and those who believe they can't are both right.”
― Henry Ford

“As we serve our jobs we serve the
world.” 
― Henry Ford

“There is no disgrace in honest failure; there is disgrace in fearing to fail” 
― Henry Ford

“When everything seem to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it ....” 
― Henry Ford

“If money is your hope for independence, you will never have it. The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability.” 
― Henry Ford

" Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice."

-- Henry Ford

Apollyon replied to Ameretta's discussion Should I kill Myself Because I am a black woman?
"Nope. 1. You seem to have self-loathing, low self esteem, and bad self image. 2. You live in Korea? Asian countries can be tough to deal with if you are not Asian. However, I can tell you many other countries in the world DO in fact like black…"
