men and women

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on action, bravery, courage, men, men and women, needs, peace, soldiers, and women

To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.

Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship.

A Quote by Olive Emilie Scheider on men, men and women, sexes, and women

I object to anything that divides the two sexes. My main point is this: human development has now reached a point at which sexual difference has become a thing of altogether minor importance. We make too much of it; we are men and women in the second place, human beings in the first.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on facts, good, joy, kindness, life, men, men and women, people, pessimism, reflection, and women

It is understandable how some people could give way to this kind of pervasive pessimism, but we speak of a gospel which brings good tidings of great joy and this must be reflected in our lives, if we are to be believable especially as we suggest to others that there is, in fact, not only a better way, but also the way. Scriptures that speak of man as a being who "might have joy" have more impact when falling from the lips or pens of men and women whose lives give fresh evidence of the validity of that scripture.

A Quote by Naomi Weisstein on clarity, men, men and women, questions, reflection, respect, sexes, and women

Except for their genitals, I don't know what immutable differences exist between men and women. Perhaps there are some other unchangeable differences; probably there are a number of irrelevant differences. But it is clear that until social expectations for men and women are equal, until we provide equal respect for both sexes, answers to this question will simply reflect our prejudices.

A Quote by Mary Roberts Rinehart on driving, egotism, force, genius, men, men and women, and women

To men and women who want to do things, there is nothing quite so driving as the force of an imprisoned ego. . . . All genius comes from this class.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on age, children, civilization, god, humility, men, men and women, names, nobility, past, people, suffering, truth, and women

Most of these people will never make the headlines and their names will not appear in Who's Who. Yet when years have rolled past and when the blazing light of truth is focused on this marvelous age in which we live - men and women will know and children will be taught that we have a finer land, a better people, a more noble civilization - because these humble children of God were willing to suffer for righteousness' sake.

There is no such thing as society: there are individual men and women, and there are families.

A Quote by Louisa May Alcott on ambition, genius, learning, men, men and women, people, talent, time, and women

It takes people a long time to learn the difference between talent and genius, especially ambitious young men and women.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on indifference, men, men and women, service, suffering, understanding, women, world, and taoism

Who can enjoy enlightenment and remain indifferent to suffering in the world? This is not in keeping with the Way. Only those who increase their service along with their understanding can be called men and women of Tao.
