Quotations: Men and Women

Elections are won by men and women chiefly because most people vote against somebody rather than for somebody.
Franklin P. Adams

Set your expectations high; find men and women whose integrity and values you respect; get their agreement on a course of action; and give them your ultimate trust.
John Akers

I am convinced that the world is not a mere bog in which men and women trample themselves in the mire and die. Something magnificent is taking place here amid the cruelties and tragedies, and the supreme challenge to intelligence is that of making the noblest and best in our curious heritage prevail.
Charles Austin Beard

Nature is just enough; but men and women must comprehend and accept her suggestions.
Antoinette Brown Blackwell

The marvel of all history is the patience with which men and women submit to burdens unnecessarily laid upon them by their governments.
William H. Borah

Nothing in life is as good as the marriage of true minds between man and woman. As good? It is life itself.
Pearl S. Buck

Sensible and responsible women do not want to vote. The relative positions to be assumed by man and woman in the working out of our civilization were assigned long ago by a higher intelligence than ours.
Grover Cleveland

Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

There needs to be bolder thinking, ... on how to measure the quality of life of men and women in the work force. Currently, success is measured by material advancements. We need to readjust the definition of success to account for time outside of work and satisfaction of life, not just the dollars-and-cents bottom line.
Betty Friedan

What are man and woman if not members of two very different and warring tribes? Yet decade after decade, century after century, they attempt in marriage to reconcile and forge a union. Why? I don't know. Biological imperative? Divine law? Or just a desire to connect to that mysterious other? In any case, it's always struck me as a hopeful thing.
Diane Frolov

A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age.
Robert Frost

When Alexander the Great visited Diogenes and asked whether he could do anything for the famed teacher, Diogenes replied: 'Only stand out of my light.' Perhaps some day we shall know how to heighten creativity. Until then, one of the best things we can do for creative men and women is to stand out of their light.
John W. Gardner

Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.... While it lies there, it needs no constitution, no law, no court to save it.
Learned Hand

Plain women know more about men than beautiful ones do.
Katharine Hepburn

Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should just live next door and just visit now and then.
Katharine Hepburn

Women prefer men who have something tender about them -- especially the legal kind.
Kay Ingram

Men and women, women and men. It will never work.
Erica Jong

They devoted the city to the lord and destroyed with the sword every living thing in it - men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep and donkeys.
The Book of Joshua

I am in love - and, my God, it's the greatest thing that can happen to a man. I tell you, find a woman you can fall in love with. Do it. Let yourself fall in love, if you haven't done so already. You are wasting your life.
D.H. Lawrence

Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.
Timothy Leary

Character is what God and the angels know of us; reputation is what men and women think of us.
Horace Mann

Behind every successful man is a surprised woman.
Maryon Pearson

Would you love a man of a broken shell after the passing of a women's soul? Thoughts that I ask others several upon several, still feeling spirits upon spirits with the few moments of love, comfort, unity, & compassion all in a few seconds the holding of each other. The hole that is missing is slowly filled with happiness, joy, good or bad times.
Brian Perkins

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.
Ronald Reagan

No arsenal ... is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
Ronald Reagan

The modern age has been characterized by a Promethean spirit, a restless energy that preys on speed records and shortcuts, unmindful of the past, uncaring of the future, existing only for the moment and the quick fix. The earthly rhythms that characterize a more pastoral way of life have been shunted aside to make room for the fast track of an urbanized existence. Lost in a sea of perpetual technological transition, modern man and woman find themselves increasingly alienated from the ecological choreography of the planet.
Jeremy Rifkin

I see America, not in the setting sun of a black night of despair ahead of us, I see America in the crimson light of a rising sun fresh from the burning, creative hand of God. I see great days ahead, great days possible to men and women of will and vision.
Carl Sandburg

Good name in man and woman, dear my lord, Is the immediate jewel of their souls: Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing; 'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands; But he that filches from me my good name Robs me of that which not enriches him And makes me poor indeed.
William Shakespeare

All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts...
William Shakespeare

A man gains no possession better than a good woman, nothing more horrible than a bad one.
Simonides

The desire of the man is for the woman, but the desire of the woman is for the desire of the man.
Madame de Stael

I think we've been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it's the government's job to cope with it. 'I have a problem, I'll get a grant.' 'I'm homeless, the government must house me.' They're casting their problem on society. And, you know, there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It's our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbour. People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations. There's no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation
Margaret Thatcher

All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.
Brian Tracy

The main difference between men and women is that men are lunatics and women are idiots.
Rebecca West

A great city is that which has the greatest men and women.
Walt Whitman

A mans face is his autobiography. A women's face is her work of fiction.
Oscar Wilde

Men marry because they are tired, women because they are curious; both are disappointed.
Oscar Wilde

Men are taught to apologize for their weaknesses, women for their strengths.
Lois Wyse
