"I was a farmhand, a merchant, a clerk, a boss, a theater director and a bank director; I lived in prisons and palaces, I knew poverty and abundance, I’ve traveled extensively on two continents, I’ve met all kinds of people and seen the human character in all its guises, and time and again I have been in the greatest danger. Amidst such a diversity of events, I had to undergo difficult times, but I’m definitely not complaining, and I believe that my life was a happy one, because I always saw the positive side of things." – P.T. Barnum
