men and women

A Quote by Katharine Hepburn on justice, men, men and women, women, and wonder

Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.

Katharine Hepburn (1909 -)

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on beauty, day, men, men and women, mistakes, shyness, ugliness, and women

Upon a day Beauty and Ugliness met on the shore of a sea. And they said to one another, "Let us bathe in the sea." Then they disrobed and swam in the waters. And after a while Ugliness came back to shore and garmented himself with the garments of Beauty and walked his way. And Beauty too came out of the sea, and found not her raiment, and she was too shy to be naked, therefore she dressed herself with the raiment of Ugliness. And Beauty walked her way. And to this very day men and women mistake the one for the other. Yet some there are who have beheld the face of Beauty, and they know her notwithstanding her garments. And some there be who know the face of Ugliness, and the cloth conceals him not from their eyes.

A Quote by John L. Casteel on encouragement, genius, leadership, life, meetings, men, men and women, prayer, and women

The genius of the Methodist movement, which enabled it to conquer the raw lives of workingmen in industrial England, and the raw lives of men and women on the American frontier, was the "class meeting" - ten members and their leader, meeting regularly for mutual encouragement, rebuke, nurture, and prayer.

Set your expectations high; find men and women whose integrity and values you respect; get their agreement on a course of action; and give them your ultimate trust.

A Quote by Jeremy Taylor on bravery, communication, friendship, love, men, men and women, truth, usefulness, and women

By friendship you mean the greatest love, the greatest usefulness, the most open communication, the noblest sufferings, the severest truth, the heartiest counsel, and the greatest union of minds which brave men and women are capable.

A Quote by James F. Byrnes on action, adoption, belief, education, fear, goals, inspiration, leadership, men, men and women, thinking, time, uncertainty, women, and world

Trained and inspired leadership is needed in the troubled world of today. We live in uncertainty and fear. The times call for thinking and straight thinking - one of the goals of true education. Unfortunately, the world so clamors for action that men and women devote little time to thinking. Many believe in second-hand thinking. They find it easier to ascertain and adopt the thoughts of others than to think for themselves.

A Quote by James Connolly on enthusiasm, fraud, heart, love, men, men and women, people, shame, suffering, and women

Ireland, as distinct from her people, is nothing to me; and the man who is bubbling over with love and enthusiasm for "Ireland," and can yet pass unmoved through our streets and witness all the wrong and the suffering, shame and degradation wrought upon the people of Ireland-yea, wrought by Irishmen upon Irish men and women, without burning to end it, is, in my opinion, a fraud and a liar in his heart, no matter how he loves that combination of chemical elements he is pleased to call Ireland.

A Quote by Hyrum W. Smith on ability, achievement, beginning, change, character, charity, giving, goals, good, greatness, growth, humility, ideas, imagination, men, men and women, mind, peace, sacrifice, study, success, time, trying, wisdom, and women

Sacrifice: Giving up something good for something better. As I have studied great men and women from the beginning of time, the common denominator of greatness has been the ability and willingness to sacrifice for whatever they were trying to achieve. When sacrifice has been there, great humans have emerged. Note: For Hyrum Smith's other ideas which he regards as pertinent to Success, see Topics: Character, Charity, Goals, Humility, Peace of Mind, Sacrifice, Success-Change-Personal Growth, Success-Change-Constructive Imagination, Wisdom

On one issue at least, men and women agree; they both distrust women.
