Songwriters always reminded me of that kid at school who would go around with his guitar, like, ‘Yeah, songwritin’ man,’ looking wistful. That wasn’t me – those kinds of people put me off.

A man’s real possession is his memory. In nothing else is he rich, in nothing else is he poor.

When I sing, I think mostly about the music. But I know that, through singing, my body shows everything that I am. I am a very passionate man and I suffer a lot and have a lot of joy also. In my opinion, it is very important for me to find this stimulus and motivation for singing.

I think Michael Crawford realised, I think we all realised, once we’d gone the route of casting a very young girl, you can’t really cast a 65 year old man opposite. Slightly different resonance I think. No, we weren’t going to go there. We’d have Jack Nicholson in the lead.
The Tories, every election, must have a bogy man. If you haven’t got a programme, a bogy man will do.
The thing we call critics are not really reviewers, they are not really critics. They don’t have the discipline to write what we would term as critique – it’s really just reviewers. They have a common man kind of taste. If you watch them overall, they are not different from the box-office. That’s my view.
For me, personally, marriage is a man and a woman living together.
What man or woman of common sense now doubts the intellectual capacity of colored people? Who does not know, that with all our efforts as a nation to crush and annihilate the mind of this portion of our race, we have never yet been able to do it.
I saw Deep Purple live once and I paid money for it and I thought, ‘Geez, this is ridiculous.’ You just see through all that sort of stuff. I never liked those Deep Purples or those sort of things. I always hated it. I always thought it was a poor man’s Led Zeppelin.
Get this, kids – how a man proposes isn’t what makes him romantic. It’s how a man purposes to lay down his life that makes him romantic.
I think a gentleman is someone who holds the comfort of other people above their own. The instinct to do that is inside every good man, I believe. The rules about opening doors and buying dinner and all of that other ‘gentleman’ stuff is a chess game, especially these days.

What is the essence of theosophy? It is the fact that man, being himself divine, can know the divinity whose life he shares. As an inevitable corollary to this supreme truth comes the fact of the brotherhood of man.
Death consists, indeed, in a repeated process of unrobing, or unsheathing.

Man is ever searching for the source whence he has come, searching for the life which is upwelling within him, immortal, nay, eternal and divine and every religion is the answer from the Universal Spirit to the seeking spirits of men that came forth from Him.

The idea of reverence for God is transmitted from parent to child, it is educated into an abnormal development, and thus almost indefinitely strengthened, but yet it does appear to me that the bent to worship is an integral part of man’s nature.
All men die. You may say: ‘Is that encouraging?’ Surely yes, for when a man dies, his blunders, which are of the form, all die with him, but the things in him that are part of the life never die, although the form be broken.
Among the various vernaculars that are spoken in different parts of India, there is one that stands out strongly from the rest, as that which is most widely known. It is Hindi. A man who knows Hindi can travel over India and find everywhere Hindi-speaking people.

It takes a certain type of man to become a boxer, to fight for a living. To be able to have the confidence to hit another man, to control your fears. You must overcome the psychical aspect and believe in the art, the discipline of the sport. You need to study. You need to be smart.
I can be the nice family man at home, and then when I go to the gym, maybe sparring with someone, I switch into beast mode. It ain’t pretty.

A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants.
It is only a man’s own fundamental thoughts that have truth and life in them. For it is these that he really and completely understands. To read the thoughts of others is like taking the remains of someone else’s meal, like putting on the discarded clothes of a stranger.

Everyone loved Steve Jobs and the idea of Steve Jobs. Like a lot of people, I loved a man I never knew.

Only the man who does not need it, is fit to inherit wealth, the man who would make his fortune no matter where he started.

There’s no way that I could have known about a 72-oz. steak challenge in Amarillo unless thousands upon thousands of locals and travellers alike had attempted it. I guess if ‘Man V Food’ is me paying homage to these legends, then I suppose ‘Man V Food Nation’ is the legacy.
I knew what I was getting into: 72-ounce steaks, shakes by the quart, atomic wings. When I landed ‘Man v. Food’ in 2008, I accepted the fact that my weight would fluctuate. But instead of stressing about the scale, I made my long-term health a primary concern.
I suppose they think me an old man and imagine it is nothing for one like me to resign a life so full of trials. But I am not old – at least in that sense you know I am not. Oh, no man ever left the world with more inviting prospects, with brighter hopes, or warmer feelings – warmer feelings.
Every publisher or agent I’ve ever met told me the same thing – that Irish readers don’t want to read about the bad old days of the Troubles neither do the English and Americans – they only want to read about the Ireland of The Quiet Man, when red-haired widows are riding bicycles and everyone else is on a horse.

You’re gonna laugh when I tell you this, man, but I’m starting to enjoy Eminem.
I did a couple songs with this hip-hop guy named Tim Dark. He was working in the same studio I’ve been working in, he heard my music and he said, aw man, I’ve got to do something with you.

The position of modern science, as far as an ignorant man of letters can understand it, seems not a step in advance of that held by Huxley and Romanes in the last century.
Assuming that man has a distinct spiritual nature, a soul, why should it be thought unnatural that under appropriate conditions of maladjustment, his soul might die before his body does or that his soul might die without his knowing it?
I started off as an actor thinking that I would be this Romeo, this dashing leading man. It turns out that I’m a character actor.
My friends all regarded me as a man of unsound mind because I held the view that my wife was with me in spirit always. I have lived with her spirit guiding me every day and she is with me now as I write this letter, and helps me to do as I am now doing.
Besides, my usefulness here is destroyed because all of my friends think me a man of unsound mind.
I’m the gypsy man. I don’t really live anywhere. I’ve got a roof over my head in Los Angeles, and I’ve got a lot of friends everywhere.
Richard Madden, I loved to work alongside him he’s a very funny man.

The most successful hyperpowers are the ones where there was actual intermixing. Tang dynasty China was China’s golden age, and contrary to what I was told when I was growing up, Tang China was founded by a man who by today’s standards was no more than half Chinese. It was a mixed-blood dynasty that pulled in ‘barbarians’ from the steppe.
To me, the psychology behind the character is critical. So I work very hard to get into the mind of the man that I’m going to be playing, because number one, I want to understand why he’s doing what he’s doing. It’s essential, it’s absolutely essential.
I think my wife has always been aware, whatever country we have been in, of my dramatic leading man status a little too dramatic she would probably say.
The basic equation that mystified me as a young man was looking at guys who could actually get girls. I was always amazed, because they never seemed to care. I was like, ‘How do they do that?’

My first Hindi film as a leading man was Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Saaransh,’ which immediately established me as someone who knows the craft.
I think it is a combination of looks, aura, success, the energies that one gives out, the person you are and the person you feel like that makes you ‘desirable.’ When the outside world sees you as a man who is responsible for himself and his family, as a man who is fit and sensitive, it kind of ups your desirability.
Forgiveness is hard for me, man. It is for most American-Western males. It’s a sign of weakness.

The cultured man is an artist, an artist in humanity.
Like when I had long hair, you kind of got male attention from everything. But when you had short hair, it was a different kind of man that was attracted to you or I found coming up.
I have spent seven of the 12 years I have been married a victim of political persecution. I must be the first male spouse being held hostage by a regime. I accept this, as Pakistan has traditional elements who find it hard to reconcile with a man whose wife works and who other men salute perforce of her office.
The stereotypical gay man is someone whose company I enjoy, someone who makes me laugh, someone I’d want my kid to be. The stereotypical gay woman makes me insecure, conscious of my failings as a feminist.
My own husband was divorced when we met, but without kids. I don’t know what I would have done if he’d had them. I got the message very early on that the worst mistake a woman can make is marrying a man with children.
A man who dies, no matter how terrible his crime was, must be brought to burial.
Maybe for you in America, Dr. King has become boring because you hear about him so much. But for me, he is the man who has most inspired me.

A city with one newspaper, or with a morning and an evening paper under one ownership, is like a man with one eye, and often the eye is glass.
I can’t tell you where a poem comes from, what it is, or what it is for: nor can any other man. The reason I can’t tell you is that the purpose of a poem is to go past telling, to be recognised by burning.
Quite frankly, I think if a man or a woman likes their American job, wherever they were born, they should be able to keep that job. We need a clear path to citizenship for workers who are already here and a fair and efficient on-ramp for those who want to come here.
I’m happy to say I’m a feminist. Being a feminist is just believing in equal rights. Man, woman, gay, straight, black, white – we’re all in it together.
Unless man is committed to the belief that all mankind are his brothers, then he labors in vain and hypocritically in the vineyards of equality.
Jaws’ was the ultimate man vs. nature movie, and it was a movie that was basically three people against the elements, so that was the biggest influence on ‘Frozen.’
I am what they call a chubby-skinny guy. I appear to be normal and have the look of an in-shape man, but if we were to go to a pool party I would go with my shirt on.
Eventually I got the call for ‘Iron Man,’ and I read sides that had nothing to do with what I did in the movie, and I performed it once while no one was in the room – it was videotaped, and I’m sure Shane Black was watching it from his helicopter or something. And then I got a call the next day that I was going down to shoot it.
My first care the following morning was, to devise some means of discovering the man in the grey cloak.

No one yet knows what a man’s province is, and how far that province, as conceived of today, is artificial.
The fact is I’m choosy, but mainly about a man’s character. He has to be interesting, funny and clever. I don’t even mind if he’s not very good-looking.
I was a corporate hatchet man, and it’s impossible for me to turn that off. It’s this curse when I walk into businesses: ‘That needs to be fixed, that needs to be fixed.’

But to sustain a marriage for 50 years, you have to get real a little bit and find someone who is understanding and who you can grow with. My mom always says, ‘Marry the man who loves you a millimeter more.’
I’ve never been good at getting on people’s nerves, and from the little quotes I read, it’s like, ‘You’re not doing enough in your life if you’re not making someone angry.’ And I’m like, ‘Man.

My favorite one… it’s hard to pick a favorite. But the one I really love a lot is ‘A Serious Man.’ I just love, love ‘A Serious Man.’
It’s crazy: the first black man to actually step foot in America came as a free man, as an explorer, with the Spaniards. That’s something for me – as a black American, it gives me a little bit of pride because we were free and respected somewhere else before slavery became what it was.
We should have scant notion of the gardens of these New England colonists in the seventeenth century were it not for a cheerful traveller named John Josselyn, a man of everyday tastes and much inquisitiveness, and the pleasing literary style which comes from directness, and an absence of self-consciousness.
The landlord of colonial days may not have been the greatest man in town, but he was certainly the best-known, often the most popular, and ever the most picturesque and cheerful figure.
It is plainly evident that, in a country where land was to be had for the asking, fuel for the cutting, corn for the planting and harvesting, and game and fish for the least expenditure of labor, no man would long serve for another, and any system of reliable service indoors or afield must fail.
There is a widespread view among the liberal intelligentsia to the effect that Henry Kissinger, U.S. National Security Advisor from 1969 to 1975 and Secretary of State from 1973 to 1977, was a bad man. That may even be an understatement. In this fashionable consensus, he is not just a bad man: he is a war criminal.
The real community of man is the community of those who seek the truth, of the potential knowers.
Every man is responsible only for his own acts. The sons do not inherit the sins of the fathers. But can we say: that was long ago, they were different?
I love vinyl, man.
As I’ve moved along – not only my life, but my career and things like that – you look at yourself and start going, ‘Oh, man, are you still doing what you set out to do? Are the ideals you had still the same?’ Sometimes you measure up and sometimes you don’t.

And then there’s also this element of – some people would describe it as spirits or a presence that appears when things are very difficult, physically and emotionally. You know, when you’re really putting out. So the third man aura is sort of an appearance. It’s the yeti.
It is not the intelligent woman v. the ignorant woman nor the white woman v. the black, the brown, and the red, it is not even the cause of woman v. man. Nay, tis woman’s strongest vindication for speaking that the world needs to hear her voice.
I’m saddened to see that some have been misled into believing that Mr. Disney was something other than a kind, caring man.
So far things are going my way. I am known in the hospice as The Man Who Wouldn’t Die. I don’t know if this is true or not, but I think some people, not many, are starting to wonder why I’m still around.
The four stages of man are infancy, childhood, adolescence, and obsolescence.
During the session of the Supreme Court, in the village of -, about three weeks ago, when a number of people were collected in the principal street of the village, I observed a young man riding up and down the street, as I supposed, in a violent passion.
There’s no sort o’ mistake in little Bullet. He can pick up miles on his feet, and fling ’em behind him as fast as the next man’s hoss, I don’t care where he comes from. And he can keep at it as long as the sun can shine without resting.
All the knowing ones were consulted as to the issue, and they all agreed, to a man, in one of two opinions: either that Bob would flog Billy, or Billy would flog Bob.
Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. They’re my biggest heroes. I love everything about Leonard Cohen: his lyrics and his voice. He seems like a really clever man, and Bob Dylan does as well. He’s just really cool.
By the ’40s, Sam Goldwyn is a very serious man. By the ’50s, he’s the dean of American producers. To the end, he was Hollywood’s gray eminence.
My father was trained as a saddler, but in fact as a young man worked in his father’s business of rearing and selling cattle, so he grew up in the countryside.
If a man is tongue-tied, don’t laugh at him, but, rather, feel pity for him, as you would for a man with broken legs.
God, for example, appealed to me as a beardless man wearing a quilted silk cap holiness was something burning, forbidding, something connected with fire while a day had the form of an oblong box.
The appeal of the Golden Age heroes for me is their simplicity, even their naivety – they represent the fundamental building blocks of the whole superhero genre, whether it’s a ‘super’ man able to lift cars, or a vigilante who terrorises criminals at night like Batman.
I’m an internet junkie. There, I said it. That’s the first step, right? I also have a thing for making lists. Oh man, nothing beats turning to a fresh, clean page in a notebook, taking out a nice pen, and starting a list. There’s so much potential there. So much to do, so little time! So hey, why not spend some of that time making a list.
To me, there is something superbly symbolic in the fact that an astronaut, sent up as assistant to a series of computers, found that he worked more accurately and more intelligently than they. Inside the capsule, man is still in charge.
Foxes was a movie that didn’t do a lot of business but it didn’t do too badly critically and eventually they offered me other things. The interesting thing was that next I tried a film called Star Man, which Michael Douglas was producing.
It’s interesting, winning an Academy Award as a young man… life-changing, but I’m just me within that. It’s been very helpful for my career, but I’m trying to stay on the path I was on before.

Listen, I’m out of this system, man, I’m out… I’m doing better than ever. I couldn’t be more happy.
I believe in the difference that a man or woman can make at the top of an organisation. Once you have a really good guy in place at the top, the next most important thing is continuity of management as opposed to a revolving door.
I am a simple man who comes from a village, and villagers like us speak our mind. Now, in the process, if unknowingly my words came across as disrespectful or insulting, then I am deeply sorry. I don’t want to hurt anyone.
These are fountains of salvation that they who thirst may be satisfied with the living words they contain. In these alone is proclaimed the doctrine of godliness. Let no man add to these, neither let him take out from these.
There are so many stereotypes of how you have to be as a black man, growing up in the community as a man.
My great-grandfather was a self-taught man, and his library was extraordinary. I read the lot.
Polymeric materials in the form of wood, bone, skin and fibers have been used by man since prehistoric time. Although organic chemistry as a science dates back to the eighteenth century, polymer science on a molecular basis is a development of the twentieth century.
I’ve certainly played those leading man or male juvenile roles, where you’re not supposed to make people laugh.
When my YouTube videos started to get really big, I was like, ‘Man, this is pretty sweet.’ It started as my hobby, and then I started traveling and learning how to play different instruments, and then it just kind of became my life.
Quite often my narrator or protagonist may be a man, but I’m not sure he’s the more interesting character, or if the more complex character isn’t the woman.
Man, like other organisms, is so perfectly coordinated that he may easily forget, whether awake or asleep, that he is a colony of cells in action, and that it is the cells which achieve, through him, what he has the illusion of accomplishing himself.
Is it absurd to imagine that our social behavior, from amoeba to man, is also planned and dictated, from stored information, by the cells? And that the time has come for men to be entrusted with the task, through heroic efforts, of bringing life to other worlds?
No doubt, man will continue to weigh and to measure, watch himself grow, and his Universe around him and with him, according to the ever growing powers of his tools.
When the Negro musician or dancer swings the blues, he is fulfilling the same fundamental existential requirement that determines the mission of the poet, the priest and the medicine man.
I am truly horrified by modern man. Such absence of feeling, such narrowness of outlook, such lack of passion and information, such feebleness of thought.
I’m going to fight until the end. My husband is worth it. He wanted me to have it. He was worth a lot. He was a very, very wealthy man.
I was 23, and he was 86. I saw a very sick man. I just wanted to just talk with him. There was no physical attraction at all. He was very much attracted to me.
I am a Soviet man, and Yeltsin is a Soviet man – maybe our grandchildren will be different.
By the time I was 10, I was doing plays for Phoenix theater. My first lead role was as the Stinky Cheese Man. I got a taste of the limelight, and I just couldn’t stop. It was a way for me to be the artistic, geeky kid that I was, and not get beat up.
And for anyone who ever thought that Ellen and I broke it off because of sexuality, you couldn’t be more mistaken. And for anyone who thought my mother’s prayers had anything to do with me marrying a man, forget it.
I like one nice man because he gets three tickets for the cinema so we’ve got somewhere to put our coats. He passes the test. I’ve been quite surprised because I really didn’t expect to be wined and dined, and it’s quite nice.
In the last two or three decades, there’s been a feminization of the man in popular media that I’ve never really understood.
I can’t claim I’m truly a man’s man, I’m just as much of a dork and a crybaby sometimes as anybody else.
The well-known inspiration for ‘Ulysses’ is made clear by the title itself: Joyce’s novel is based on Homer’s ‘Odyssey’, under the ever-fascinating premise that all of Odysseus’ extraordinary adventures can be experienced by a modern man in a single day, provided that the writing consists of his mental activity.
Caravaggio was a tormented, defiant, bisexual, angry young man – a maestro who looked nothing like a maestro.
In ‘Dublinesque’, Spanish writer Enrique Vila-Matas inverts the terms of Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’ and tells the story of a man who, after living a hyperkinetic life like those of Odysseus and Leopold Bloom, resolves to never leave his room again and to reduce his mental activity to a minimum.

A Shakespearean tragedy as so far considered may be called a story of exceptional calamity leading to the death of a man in high estate. But it is clearly much more than this, and we have now to regard it from another side.
One of my favorite comedy performances of all time is Charles Grodin in ‘Midnight Run,’ and in a lot of things he’s done. I think he’s hilarious as the straight man, playing it real.
In 1973 we moved to the British Isle of Man, and I put my first band together for one year, named Melody Fair.
George Pal had total control, and he was there on the set every day. You never met a more charming man in your entire lifetime – what a lovely gentleman.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man, youth never.
Banshee’ is the story of a man who gets out of prison, tracks down his long-lost love, and tries to reclaim what was stolen from him years earlier by assuming the identity of a sheriff. I guess you could say it’s an explosive action drama – sit down, strap in, and enjoy the ride!
My first car was a Holden Commodore station wagon. I can’t remember much more about it than that – it was coffee colored, and I think it was four cylinders, so it was really quite weak, but very safe for a young man to be driving.
From time immemorial, man has desired to comprehend the complexity of nature in terms of as few elementary concepts as possible.
Judging is a lonely job in which a man is, as near as may be, an island entire.
If someone comes to me and says they’re not capable of being loved, I want to reach out to them and tell them that everybody’s loveable. If a man is forced or wants to become a better man, then I root for him. Everybody needs to be loved.
Man, in his animal capacity, is qualified to subsist in every climate.
The pretended physical philosophy of modern days strips Man of all his moral attributes, or holds them of no account in the estimate of his origin and place in the created world.
A decent man who doesn’t consider himself a bigot can indeed be trained to behave like a bigot if he welcomes feedback exclusively from those who consider bigotry no big deal or, indeed, an attribute to be admired.

Any coalition has its troubles, as every married man knows.
In his final year in office, Clinton decided that his contribution to Middle East peace would lie not in the removal of Saddam Hussein but in a grand attempt to resolve the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel. With this, he missed his last chance to deal forcefully with the man he was publicly committed to overthrowing.
We hold that what one man cannot morally do, a million men cannot morally do, and government, representing many millions of men, cannot do.
The circulatory system of man and the vertebrate animals can be considered as made up of a small number of organs or subordinate systems, which are easy to recognize anatomically, and the functions of which are on the whole quite distinct.
In man, the mechanical breathing is essential to life, and it is one of the old tests for death to see whether these movements have ceased completely.
In many organisms, including man, the mechanical respiration and the circulation of the blood are ‘regulated’ so as to correspond to the demand of the moment.
It is no doubt technically possible to study metabolism and respiration of fishes during swimming at a constant rate, and of certain insects and birds during flight, and to obtain information similar to that obtained on man during work on a bicycle ergometer or a treadmill.
For me, the vast marvel is to be alive. For man, or for flowers or beast or bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly and perfectly alive.

Man thinks, God directs.
A man desires praise that he may be reassured, that he may be quit of his doubting of himself he is indifferent to applause when he is confident of success.
I wanted to live the inner life of every man I saw, look at the world through his eyes.

Sometimes the picture that emerges of the man seems no longer to agree with our conception of the musician. In reality, however, there is a glorious unity.
My most profound confidence is however based upon the fact that at the head of Germany there stands a man by his entire development, his desires, and striving can only have been destined by fate to lead our people into a brighter future.
At a certain stage in his evolution, man himself had been able to lay hold upon a higher order of things, which raised him above the level of the beasts that perish, and enabled him to see, at least in the distance, the shining towers of the City of God.
When a woman like that whom I’ve seen so much, All of a sudden drops out of touch Is always busy and never can, Spare you a moment, it means a man.
Nothing is so threatening to conventional values as a man who does not want to work or does not want to work at a challenging job, and most people are disturbed if a man in a well- paying job indicates ambivalence or dislike toward it.
Do you know what a soldier is, young man? He’s the chap who makes it possible for civilised folk to despise war.
Before ‘Last Man Standing,’ I did a lot of indies, which were raw and controversial and much darker. That is where I feel most secure as a storyteller. That is what I am drawn to the most.
Good Christian people, I am come hither to die, for according to the law, and by the law I am judged to die, and therefore I will speak nothing against it. I am come hither to accuse no man, nor to speak anything of that, whereof I am accused and condemned to die.
Growing up, I would say, when we were racing go-karts back in the day, it was always our uncle. We were always looking up to our uncle. I mean, he won the Daytona 500, he’s a very well-respected man, and we’ve always looked up to that.
Man should be master of his environment, not its slave. That is what freedom means.
For things to have value in man’s world, they are given the role of commodities. Among man’s oldest and most constant commodity is woman.
There are things coming from me that I felt I wanted to talk about. My search for my own blend of spirituality, my acknowledgement of my sexuality, my being the single mother of a young man.
A man is free to go up as high as he can reach up to but I, with all my style and pep, can’t get a man my equal because a girl is always judged by her mother.
I was put in a position with a man that, whenever he would call me at work or at home, work-related, he would say jump and I’d say how high and I would jump.
Comrades, this man has a nice smile, but he’s got iron teeth.
An artist never works under ideal conditions. If they existed, his work wouldn’t exist, for the artist doesn’t live in a vacuum. Some sort of pressure must exist. The artist exists because the world is not perfect. Art would be useless if the world were perfect, as man wouldn’t look for harmony but would simply live in it.
If a man is dumb, someone is going to get the best of him, so why not you? If you don’t, you’re as dumb as he is.
A hero holds purposes appropriate to man and is, therefore, a thinker.
Of what value is a mind when placed in the brain of a coward? If mind is a gift of God to man for his use, let him use it. A mind is not in use when doing no good.

He who receives a great many letters demanding answer, sees himself as if engaged in a hopeless struggle of one man against the rest of the world.
If a man dreams that he has committed a sin before which the sun hid his face, it is often safe to conjecture that, in sheer forgetfulness, he wore a red tie, or brown boots with evening dress.

I guess you can look at me, and tell I’m the old man. My name is BB King.
I call myself a blues singer, but you ain’t never heard me call myself a blues guitar man.
You’ve heard me call myself a bluesman and a blues singer. I call myself a blues singer, but you ain’t never heard me call myself a blues guitar man. Well, that’s because there’s been so many can do it better’n I can, play the blues better’n me. I think a lot of them have told me things, taught me things.
Many a man thinks he is patient when, in reality, he is indifferent.
Caste may be bad. Caste may lead to conduct so gross as to be called man’s inhumanity to man. All the same, it must be recognized that the Hindus observe Caste not because they are inhuman or wrong-headed. They observe Caste because they are deeply religious.
Who is richer? The man who is seen, but cannot see? Or the man who is not being seen, but can see?
Cobb is a prick. But he sure can hit. God Almighty, that man can hit.

When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn when man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!
I married the first man I ever kissed. When I tell this to my children, they just about throw up.
I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don’t contract them.
What I believe is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but what I also believe is that we have an obligation to make sure that gays and lesbians have the rights of citizenship that afford them visitations to hospitals, that allow them to be, to transfer property between partners, to make certain that they’re not discriminated on the job.
In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.
I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman – not me, not Bill, nobody – more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.
Like many other women, I could not understand why every man who changed a diaper has felt impelled, in recent years, to write a book about it.
I believe that women have a capacity for understanding and compassion which man structurally does not have, does not have it because he cannot have it. He’s just incapable of it.
The most expensive hobby a rich man could have is a boat, and the second most expensive hobby he could have is a very old house.
Whatever you got you have to accentuate. I ran my female card up and down the ladder my whole career, because I was in a man’s world. It was worked by women but owned by men. I was the only female owner in my field at that time.
If it’s a woman, it’s caustic if it’s a man, it’s authoritative.
It would be nice to feel that we are a better world, a world of more compassion and a world of more humanity, and to believe in the basic goodness of man.
The sports page records people’s accomplishments, the front page usually records nothing, but man’s failures.
I think any man in business would be foolish to fool around with his secretary. If it’s somebody else’s secretary, fine.
Cheney was among the best secretaries of defence the country has ever had. He was a very effective White House chief of staff. He did not make many enemies, and he had the ability to persuade people with that soft tone and very reasonable style of his. He’s always been exceptionally good as the right-hand man.
I am a Quaker. And as everyone knows, Quakers, for 300 years, have, on conscientious ground, been against participating in war. I was sentenced to three years in federal prison because I could not religiously and conscientiously accept killing my fellow man.
A man’s pride can be his downfall, and he needs to learn when to turn to others for support and guidance.
To speak and to speak well, are two things. A fool may talk, but a wise man speaks.
Language most shows a man, speak that I may see thee.
Putin himself is a character out of fiction, an uber-macho former Soviet thug running a massive, expansionist kleptocracy. The man stages photographs riding horses barechested and hunting tigers. His enemies find themselves on the wrong end of radioactive poisoning.
The Left masks its distaste for the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality in a straw man argument that Bible believers are violent bigots. They are not. Citing the Bible doesn’t make you a bigot against human beings – it makes you a bigot against sin, which is a good thing.
It’s really amazing that in the age of unbelief, as a smart man called it, there isn’t even more fraud. After all, with no God, there’s no one to ever call you to account, and no accounting at all if you can get away with it.
After all the black man has been through in this world, he can still often reach levels of spirituality the most pampered white man cannot touch. Maybe what he’s been through is the reason why.
If there is no God, then man sometimes thinks he is god, and sometimes tries to live like a god.
I found that a whole series of people opposed me simply on the grounds that I was a woman. The clerics took to the mosque saying that Pakistan had thrown itself outside the Muslim world and the Muslim umar by voting for a woman, that a woman had usurped a man’s place in the Islamic society.
Frankenstein’ was all about the idea that, through electricity and the destruction of night, man creating light and darkness, we took on god-like powers and then abused them like gods, and we are only men. That’s a story about man making a man in his own image. The inversion of natural order.
If a man be gloomy let him keep to himself. No one has the right to go croaking about society, or what is worse, looking as if he stifled grief.
Man is not the creature of circumstances, circumstances are the creatures of men. We are free agents, and man is more powerful than matter.
As a general rule, the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information.
Man is made to adore and to obey: but if you will not command him, if you give him nothing to worship, he will fashion his own divinities, and find a chieftain in his own passions.
The fool wonders, the wise man asks.
A man may speak very well in the House of Commons, and fail very completely in the House of Lords. There are two distinct styles requisite: I intend, in the course of my career, if I have time, to give a specimen of both.
Every man and woman is born into the world to do something unique and something distinctive and if he or she does not do it, it will never be done.

Many a man thinks he is buying pleasure, when he is really selling himself to it.
If a man could have half of his wishes, he would double his troubles.
We are more thoroughly an enlightened people, with respect to our political interests, than perhaps any other under heaven. Every man among us reads, and is so easy in his circumstances as to have leisure for conversations of improvement and for acquiring information.
I was attracted to opera when I was 15 or 16. A very rich man in England bankrupted himself to put on a lot of opera during the war, but he converted a lot of people, myself included, in the process.
You know, every time it comes, every time that light comes on or every time that camera comes on, every time that microphone comes on, the Mac Man seek and destroy.
I want to do something that people can really say, ‘Hey, man, that was good, I’m proud of you, I’m proud of that.’ ‘Pride’ and ‘Transformers’ and things like that.
I don’t have no story. Everybody wants this Hollywood story, but the world don’t owe you nothing, man. It’s what you owe the world.
As I got older, I got into all kinds of things in the streets – but for some reason, I never got caught up with the gangs growing up. Everybody dug me, man. I never had problems.
When you’re offstage, that’s the footprint. That’s the man God’s gonna judge.
The demand for certainty is one which is natural to man, but is nevertheless an intellectual vice.
The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry.
The man who can centre his thoughts and hopes upon something transcending self can find a certain peace in the ordinary troubles of life, which is impossible to the pure egoist.
Man is a credulous animal, and must believe something in the absence of good grounds for belief, he will be satisfied with bad ones.
There is no need to worry about mere size. We do not necessarily respect a fat man more than a thin man. Sir Isaac Newton was very much smaller than a hippopotamus, but we do not on that account value him less.
Many a man will have the courage to die gallantly, but will not have the courage to say, or even to think, that the cause for which he is asked to die is an unworthy one.
When the intensity of emotional conviction subsides, a man who is in the habit of reasoning will search for logical grounds in favour of the belief which he finds in himself.
Hungry man, reach for the book: it is a weapon.
One forgets too easily the difference between a man and his image, and that there is none between the sound of his voice on the screen and in real life.
I’d marry again if I found a man who had fifteen million dollars, would sign over half to me, and guarantee that he’d be dead within a year.
A woman is handicapped by her sex, and handicaps society, either by slavishly copying the pattern of man’s advance in the professions, or by refusing to compete with man at all.
Man is not the enemy here, but the fellow victim.
If you’re walking with your lady on the sidewalk, I still like to see a man walking street-side, to protect the lady from traffic. I grew up with that, and I hate to see something like that get lost. I still like to see that a man opens the door. I like those touches of chivalry that are fast disappearing.
I was an only child and I had a mother and father who were just – there wasn’t a straight man in the house, and I mean that in a very nice way. They were fun, and we would laugh a lot.
The more successful I become, the more I need a man.
G.O.O.D. Music is just real tastemakers, man. Kanye’s a real tastemaker. One thing that I feel is tight about G.O.O.D. is that a lot of people have their own style, and you can see that. My style is different than Pusha’s, it’s different than Cudi’s. But it’s also slightly similar ’cause we have some similar tastes.
My music is the essence of Detroit. At one time, we were the center of the world, man – Motor City.
It was probably in third grade – I had a super-fake gold herringbone chain. Yeah man, it was, like, super fake. I don’t remember if it was my mom’s or how I got it, but ever since then, I’ve loved chains. The first real chain I got was from Kanye. It was a Jacob the Jeweler Kanye West Jesus piece.
