    Using Of vs. From

    I have a question on whether to use "of" or "from" in this example

    ...as he demands more from himself than what is asked of other men.
    OR
    ...as he demands more of himself than what is asked of other men.

    If both uses are correct, which sounds better in your perspective?

    Thank You,
    Charles James

    Personally, I don't think there is a difference.

    I would use "of", mostly because it's being used with "ask".

    I tend to agree, although the other option is okay.
