Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
'Tis all men's office to speak patience To those that wring under the load of sorrow, But no Man's virtue nor sufficiency To be so moral when he shall endure The like himself.william shakespeare
Even when the pioneer didn't rape Nature, he divorced her a little too easily: he missed the great lesson that both ecology and medicine teach - that Man's great mission is not to conquer nature by main force but to cooperate with her intelligently but lovingly for his own purposes.
I happen to think that the singular evil of our time is prejudice. It is from this evil that all other evils grow and multiply. In almost everything I've written there is a thread of this: a Man's seemingly palpable need to dislike someone other than himself.rod serling
Earth provides enough to satisfy every Man's need, but not every Man's greed.Mahatma Gandhi
It is the first rational exposition of the relations of mankind to the mystery which shrouds the how and wherefore of Man's existence, the first honest protest against our long, long martyrdom.harry johnston
These examples and many others demonstrate an alarming trend whereby the privacy and dignity of our citizens is being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence. But when viewed as a whole, there begins to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen -- a society in which government may intrude into the secret regions of Man's life at will.william o. douglas
Adam, Man's benefactor he gave him all he has ever received that was worth having Death.
In recent years it has become impossible to talk about Man's relation to nature without referring to "ecology"...such leading scientists in this area as Rachel Carson, Barry Commoner, Eugene Odum, Paul Ehrlich and others, have become our new delphic voices...so influential has their branch of science become that our time might well be called the "Age of Ecology".
In civilized societies today ... clitoris envy, or womb envy, takes subtle forms. Man's constant need to disparage woman, to humble her, to deny her equal rights, and to belittle her achievements all are expressions of his innate envy and fear.elizabeth gould davis

Zuleika, on a desert island, would have spent most of her time in looking for a Man's footprint.max beerbohm
For I say, this is death and the sole death, When a Man's loss comes to him from his gain, Darkness from light, from knowledge ignorance, And lack of love from love made manifest.Robert Browning
Is an institution always a Man's shadow shortened in the sun, the lowest common denominator of everybody in it?Randall Jarrell
A Man's mind will very generally refuse to make itself up until it be driven and compelled by emergency.Anthony Trollope
The great Christian art did not die because all possible forms had been used up; it died because faith was being transformed into piety. Now, the same conquest of the outside world that brought in our modern individualism, so different from that of the Renaissance, is by way of relativizing the individual. It is plain to see that Man's faculty of transformation, which began by a remaking of the natural world, has ended by calling man himself into question.andré malraux
And so the blasts of calumny, howl they ever so fiercely over the good Man's head, contribute to his juster appreciation and to his wider fame. Preserve only a good conscience toward God, and a loving purpose toward your fellow men, and you need not wince nor tremble, though the pack of the spaniel-hearted hounds snarl at your heels.william morley punshon
Every revolution was first a thought in one Man's mind; and when the same thought occurs to another man, it is the key to that era.ralph waldo emerson

A Man's enemies have no power to harm him, if he is true to himself and loyal to God.
Poetry is Man's rebellion against being what he is.james branch cabell
Be just,--not like Man's law, which seizes on one isolated fact, but like God's judging angel, whose clear, sad eye saw all the countless cankering days of this Man's life, all the countless nights, when, sick with starving, his soul fainted in him, before it judged him for this night, the saddest of all.
I believe the reason I escaped, both this time and on otheroccasions, was the idea of perishing neverentered my head.Nothing isso bad asterror for lowering a Man's stamina.Charles Douglas
I always turn to the sports section first. The sports section records people's accomplishments; the front page nothing but Man's failures.Earl Warren
The clouds that gather round the setting sun Do take a sober coloring from an eye That hath kept watch o'er Man's mortality.william wordsworth
When power leads man toward arrogance , poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of Man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts , poetry cleanses.
