Men Boy quotes, quotations, sayings

Maintain peace with men, war with their vices.
 1009    
One of the many reasons for the bewildering and tragic character of human existence is the fact that social organization is at once necessary and fatal. Men are forever creating such organizations for their own convenience and forever finding themselves the victims of their home-made monsters.
Aldous Huxley
 1008    
The history of the world is full of men who rose to leadership, by sheer force of self-confidence, bravery and tenacity.
Mahatma Gandhi
 1008    
If you're at a Thanksgiving dinner, but you don't like the stuffing or the cranberry sauce or anything else, just pretend like you're eating it, but instead, put it all in your lap and form it into a big mushy ball. Then, later, when you're out back having cigars with the boys, let out a big fake cough and throw the ball to the ground. Then say, 'Boy, these are good cigars'
Jack Handey Deep Thoughts
 1006    
Rhetoric is the art of ruling the minds of men.
Plato
 1005    
Great men are the guideposts and landmarks in the state.
Edmund Burke
 1005    
Is not the tremendous strength in men of the impulse to creative work in every field precisely due to their feeling of playing a relatively small part in the creation of living beings, which constantly impels them to an overcompensation in achievement?
Karen Horney
 1005    
The gap between ideals and actualities, between dreams and achievements, the gap that can spur strong men to increased exertions, but can break the spirit of others -- this gap is the most conspicuous, continuous land mark in American history. It is conspicuous and continuous not because Americans achieve little, but because they dream grandly. The gap is a standing reproach to Americans; but it marks them off as a special and singularly admirable community among the world's peoples.
George F. Will
 1005    
Most men seem to live according to sense rather than reason.
St. Thomas Aquinas
 1005    
Let us describe the education of our men. What then is the education to be? Perhaps we could hardly find a better than that which the experience of the past has already discovered, which consists, I believe, in gymnastic, for the body, and music for the mind.
Plato
 1005    
The evil men do lives after them, the good is often interred with their bones.
William Shakspeare, Julius Ceaser
 1005    
There are three classes of men; lovers of wisdom, lovers of honor, and lovers of gain.
Plato
 1005    
The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.
Charles De Gaulle
 1005    
The greatest tragedy in America is not the destruction of our natural resources, though that tragedy is great. The truly great tragedy is the destruction of our human resources by our failure to fully utilize our abilities, which means that most men and women go to their graves with their music still in them.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
 1005    
A little boy came home and told his mother he had gotten first prize in an examination. The question had been How many legs does a horse have He had answered, Three. When his mother asked how he had gotten the first prize, he replied that all the other children had said, Two.
Richard Kehl
 1005    
The men who really believe in themselves are all in lunatic asylums.
Gilbert Keith Chesterton
 1005    
If it were not for injustice, men would not know justice.
Heraclitus
 1005    
The graveyards are full of indispensable men.
Charles de Gaulle
 1005    
Never again clutter your days or nights with so many menial and unimportant things that you have no time to accept a real challenge when it comes along. This applies to play as well as work. A day merely survived is no cause for celebration. You are not here to fritter away your precious hours when you have the ability to accomplish so much by making a slight change in your routine. No more busy work. No more hiding from success. Leave time, leave space, to grow. Now. Now! Not tomorrow!
Og Mandino
 1005    
The men who are great live with that which is substantial, they do not stay with that which is superficial they abide with realities, they remain not with what is showy. The one they discard, the other they hold.
Lao Tzu
 1005    
When complaints are freely heard, deeply considered and speedily reformed, then is the utmost bound of civil liberty attained that wise men look for.
John Milton
 1005    
I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
 1005    
Men are not suffering from the lack of good literature, good art, good theatre, good music, but from that which has made it impossible for these to become manifest. In short, they are suffering from the silent shameful conspiracy (the more shameful since it is unacknowledged) which has bound them together as enemies of art and artists.
Henry Miller
 1005    
Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print, and begin to build.
Robert Collier
 1005    
Our civilization has decided that determining the guilt or innocence of men is a thing too important to be trusted to trained men. When it wants a library catalogued, or the solar system discovered, or any trifle of that kind, it uses up its specialists. But when it wishes anything done which is really serious, it collects twelve of the ordinary men standing round. The same thing was done, if I remember right, by the Founder of Christianity.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
 1005    
Wives are young men's mistresses; companions for middle age, and old men's nurses.
Francis Bacon
 1005    
False opinions are like false money, struck first of all by guilty men and thereafter circulated by honest people who perpetuate the crime without knowing what they are doing.
Joseph De Maistre
 1005    
To us, men of the West, a very strange thing happened at the turn of the century; without noticing it, we lost science, or at least the thing that had been called by that name for the last four centuries. What we now have in place of it is something different, radically different, and we don't know what it is. Nobody knows what it is.
Simone Weil
 1005    
When men yield up the privilege of thinking, the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon.
Thomas Paine
 1005    
For me, winning isn't something that happens suddenly on the field when the whistle blows and the crowds roar. Winning is something that builds physically and mentally every day that you train and every night that you dream.
Emmitt Smith
 1005    
What is the most important for democracy is not that great fortunes should not exist, but that great fortunes should not remain in the same hands. In that way there are rich men, but they do not form a class.
Alexis De Tocqueville
 1005    
Now all the knowledge and wisdom that is in creatures, whether angels or men, is nothing else but a participation of that one eternal, immutable and increased wisdom of God, or several signatures of that one archetypal seal, or like so many multiplied reflections of one and the same face, made in several glasses, whereof some are clearer, some obscurer, some standing nearer, some further off.
Ralph J. Cudworth
 1005    
I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conlusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleages, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.
Leo Tolstoy
 1005    
Boy, n.: A noise with dirt on it.
 1004    
Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change.
Confucius

There are two levers for moving men -- interest and fear.
Napoleon Bonaparte
 1004    
There is nothing that fear and hope does not permit men to do.
Marquis De Vauvenargues

Power is what men seek and any group that gets it will abuse it.
Lincoln Steffens
 1004    
Power is what men seek, and any group that gets it will abuse it. It is the same story.
Lincoln Steffens
 1004    
Somebody must take a chance. The monkeys who became men, and the monkeys who didn't are still jumping around in trees making faces at the monkeys who did.
Lincoln Steffens
 1004    
Girls we love for what they are; men for what they promise to be.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
 1004    
Are we not men?
 1004    
Men argue, nature acts.
Voltaire

Men are lead by trifles.
Napoleon Bonaparte

Nature makes woman to be won and men to win.
George William Curtis

The nature of men and women
their essential nature
 1004    
Men's vows are women's traitors!
William Shakespeare
 1004    
Men are jerks. Women are psychotic.
Kilgore Trout, Timequake, Kurt Vonnegut. Page 19.
