It is the honest lies we tell statements factually correct and essentially deceiving which debauch our manhood and stunt our growth.
Youth is a blunder; Manhood a struggle; Old Age a regret.
Manhood begins when we have in any way made truce with Necessity; begins even when we have surrendered to Necessity, as the most part only do; but begins joyfully and hopefully only when we have reconciled ourselves to Necessity; and thus, in reality, triumphed over it, and felt that in Necessity we are free.
I have always disliked being a man. The whole idea of Manhood in America is pitiful, in my opinion. This version of masculinity is a little like having to wear an ill-fitting coat for one's entire life (by contrast, I imagine femininity to be an oppressive sense of nakedness).paul theroux
It is very sad for a man to make himself servant to a thing, his Manhood all taken out of him by the hydraulic pressure of excessive business. I should not like to be merely a great doctor, a great lawyer, a great minister, a great politician I should like to be also something of a man.
Depend upon it, my younger brethren, the bright, self-sacrificing enthusiasms of early Manhood are among the most precious things in the whole course of human life.
We have seen the birth of geometry in Egypt, its transference to the Ionian Islands, thence to Lower Italy and to Athens. We have witnessed its growth in Greece from feeble childhood to vigorous Manhood, and now we shall see it return to the land of its birth and there derive new vigour.
Firmly I believe and truly God is Three, and God is One; And I next acknowledge duly Manhood taken by the Son.
Youth is a blunder; Manhood a struggle; Old Age a regret.benjamin disraeli
You are born supernaturally through faith, by the grace of God, into the kingdom of righteousness; but you are born a little babe, that is all; and if you make any progress from that point on, it must be by work, by sacrifice, by the practice of Christian virtues, by benevolence, by self-denial, by resisting the adversary, by making valiant war for God and against sin; and on no other basis, am I authorized in giving you a hope that you may come to Manhood in Christ Jesus.charles henry fowler
Death is a stage in human progress, to be passed as we would pass from childhood to youth, or from youth to Manhood, and with the same consciousness of an everlasting nature.edmund sears
Ever since I arrived to a state of Manhood, I have felt a sincere passion for liberty.
Then the white man hates him [the Native American], and hunts him down like the wild beasts of the forest, and so the red-crayon sketch is rubbed out, and the canvas is ready for a picture of Manhood a little more like God's own image.
You have to stand guard over the development and maintenance of democracy, social justice and the equality of Manhood in your own native soil. With faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile that you cannot achieve.muhammad ali jinnah
Count me o'er earth's chosen heroes, :;they were souls that stood alone, While the men they agonized for hurled the contumelious stone, Stood serene, and down the future saw the golden beam incline To the side of perfect justice, mastered by their faith divine, By one man's plain truth to Manhood and to God's supreme design.james russell lowell
It can be said of him, When he departed he took a Man's life with him. No sounder piece of British Manhood was put together in that eighteenth century of Time.thomas carlyle
In the lexicon of youth, which Fate reserves for a bright Manhood, there is no such word As fail!Lytton
Man seeks, in his Manhood, not orders, not laws and peremptory dogmas, but counsel from one who is earnest in goodness and faithful in friendship, making man free.Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Death is a stage in human progress, to be passed as we would pass from childhood to youth, or from youth to Manhood, and with the same consciousness of an everlasting nature.
For it comes to pass oft that a terrible oath, with a swaggering accent sharply twanged off, gives Manhood more approbation than ever proof itself would have earned him.william shakespeare
But dream not helm and harness The sign of valor true; Peace hath higher tests of Manhood Than battle ever knew.john greenleaf whittier
The noiseless foot of Tune steals swiftly by And ere we dream of Manhood, age is nigh.
