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
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
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.Lewis Mumford
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
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

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.
By virtue of exchange, one Man's prosperity is beneficial to all others.frédéric bastiat
I'm not unmindful of a Man's seeming need for faith; I'm for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers, or a bottle of Jack Daniel's. But to me religion is a deeply personal thing in which man and God go it alone together, without the witch doctor in the middle.frank sinatra
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
I have tried to be impartial, though I know that a Man's past always colors his views, and that nothing else is so irritating as impartiality.will durant
A Man's sentiments are generally just and right, while it is second selfish thought which makes him trim and adopt some other view. The best reforms are worked out when sentiment operates, as it does in women, with the indignation of righteousness.
Christianity is the solace of the poor. Christ has ever been the poor Man's Friend.
