Jersey Campbell's Quote of the Day: the Don Draper edition

For a character that asks, "What do you want me to say?" for what seems like every Mad Men episode, Don Draper sure knows how to string some words together to create insightful statements and can't-miss advertising proposals. 

As you can see, today's quote of the day comes to us from Mad Men's Don Draper, a man who always has something to say. Unless he literally asks what he should say.

“When a man walks into a room, he brings his whole life with him. He has a million reasons for being anywhere, just ask him. If you listen, he’ll tell you how he got there. How he forgot where he was going, and that he woke up. If you listen, he’ll tell you about the time he thought he was an angel or dreamt of being perfect. And then he’ll smile with wisdom, content that he realized the world isn’t perfect. We’re flawed, because we want so much more. We’re ruined, because we get these things, and wish for what we had.”
