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.
Mama and Daddy King represent the best in Manhood and woManhood, the best in a marriage, the kind of people we are trying to become.coretta scott king
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
In the lexicon of youth, which Fate reserves for a bright Manhood, there is no such word As fail!Lytton
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.
Perfect little body, without fault or stain on thee,With promise of strength and Manhood full and fair!robert bridges
He had come back a man, and faithless like a man. He knew that he had longed for her; that true friends share everything, except the past before they met. If only she would weep, even that, and let him comfort her; but she would not humble herself before a man. if only he would run to her side and cling to her; but his Manhood was hard-won, no mortal should make him a child again.mary renault
October's bellowing anger breakes and cleavesThe bronzed battalions of the stricken woodIn whose lament I hear a voice that grievesFor battle's fruitless harvest, and the feudOf outrage men. Their lives are like the leavesScattered in flocks of ruin, tossed and blownAlong the westering furnace flaring red.O martyred youth and Manhood overthrown,The burden of your wrongs is on my head.siegfried sassoon
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
With respect to the development of powers devoted to coping with specific scientific and economic problems we may say that the child should be growing in Manhood. With respect to sympathetic curiosity, unbiased responsiveness, and openness of mind, we may say that the adult should be growing in childlikeness.john dewey
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
There's neither honesty, Manhood, nor good fellowship in thee.william shakespeare
With more capacity for love than earth Bestows on most of mortal mould and birth, His early dreams of good out-stripp'd the truth, And troubled Manhood follow'd baffled youth.lord byron
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
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.
Our high mission, our noble calling, is to build up souls, to perfect the Christian life, and to make Manhood acceptable to God, and radiant in the sight of all men.
A people who are still, as it were, but in the gristle, and not yet hardened into the bone of Manhood.
But dream not helm and harness The sign of valor true; Peace hath higher tests of Manhood Than battle ever knew.john greenleaf whittier
