Great Quotes of Men and Manhood

I've been following the blog "The Art of Manliness" for some time. I thought I would share a recent post listing 80 great quotes on men and manliness. His only flaw is that his blog usually ignores a man's spiritual aspect which should be paramount over his physical, emotional or mental aspects.

Here is a sampling:

“To have done no man a wrong…to walk and live, unseduced, within arm’s length of what is not your own, with nothing between your desire and its gratification but the invisible law of rectitude—this is to be a man.” –Orison Swett Marden

“You have to be a man before you can be a gentleman.” –John Wayne (McLintock!)

“We do not admire the man of timid peace. We admire the man who embodies victorious effort; the man who never wrongs his neighbor, who is prompt to help a friend, but who has those virile qualities necessary to win in the stern strife of actual life.” –Theodore Roosevelt

“For the man who makes everything that leads to happiness, or near to it, to depend upon himself, and not upon other men … has adopted the very best plan for living happily. This is the man of moderation; this is the man of manly character and of wisdom.” –Plato

See all the quotes here.
