Men

Great men are like eagles, and build their nest on some lofty solitude.

Arthur Schopenhauer

Men are only as good as their technical development allows them to be.

George Orwell

When men speak ill of thee, live so as nobody may believe them.

Plato

1

Nothing can be more absurd than the practice that prevails in our country of men and women not following the same pursuits with all their strengths and with one mind, for thus, the state instead of being whole is reduced to half.

Plato

1

Men who are in earnest are not afraid of consequences.

Marcus Garvey

Our people could not talk with these white-faced men, but they used signs which all people understand.

Chief Joseph

For a short time we lived quietly. But this could not last. White men had found gold in the mountains around the land of winding water.

Chief Joseph

When men yield up the privilege of thinking, the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon.

Thomas Paine

The Worldly Hope men set their Hearts upon
Turns Ashes — or it prospers; and anon,
Like Snow upon the Desert's dusty Face,
Lighting a little hour or two — is gone.

Omar Khayyam

In the last three years of racing I've met as many women fans as men fans, and in NASCAR it's the same thing. My wife loves cars, but the difference is she doesn't have 20 years of understanding the background of them. She basically drives them and uses her gut feelings as to which is best.

Men — quotes and aphorisms

Ten men waiting for me at the door? Send one of them home, I'm tired.

Mae West

Men, women, and children who cannot live on gravity alone need something to satisfy their gayer, lighter moods and hours, and he who ministers to this want is, in my opinion, in a business established by the Creator of our nature. If he worthily fulfills his mission and amuses without corrupting, he need never feel that he has lived in vain.

P. T. Barnum

1

I have lived too long to cherish many illusions about the essential high-mindedness of men when brought into stark confrontation with the issue of control over their security, and their property interests.

Haile Selassie

Women lie about their age; men lie about their income.

William Feather

I shall argue that strong men, conversely, know when to compromise and that all principles can be compromised to serve a greater principle.

Andrew Carnegie

1

The men who have succeeded are men who have chosen one line and stuck to it.

Andrew Carnegie

Thrones, dominations, principalities know now with a terrible certainty that mere force of arms has no power which compares with that living word of the crucified Nazarene, that bears with it Eternal Life, and directs the duty of a world of men whom he can lead, but who bend no knee to power.

Edward Everett Hale

No other group in America has so had their identity socialized out of existence as have black women... When black people are talked about the focus tends to be on black men; and when women are talked about the focus tends to be on white women.

What makes the bravery of the men and women of the FBI so special is that they know exactly what they're in for. They spend weeks and weeks in an academy learning just how hard and dangerous this work is. Then they raise their right hands and take an oath and do that work anyway.

James Comey

1

Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it.

Benjamin Franklin
