After that, create the space between icon and text with a class name .glyphicon glyphicon-user.

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css">
    <title>Buttons</title>
</head>

<body class="text-center">
    <a >
        <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-user"></span>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;I am a man.   
    </a>

    <p>Envelope icon as a link:
        <a href="#">
          <span style="padding-left:10px" class="glyphicon glyphicon-envelope"></span>
        </a>
      </p>
    <!-- Bootstrap Bundle with Popper -->
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/[email protected]/dist/js/bootstrap.bundle.min.js"
        integrity="sha384-MrcW6ZMFYlzcLA8Nl+NtUVF0sA7MsXsP1UyJoMp4YLEuNSfAP+JcXn/tWtIaxVXM"
