Famous quotes containing the word raised:

    The men who are messing up their lives, their families, and their world in their quest to feel man enough are not exercising true masculinity, but a grotesque exaggeration of what they think a man is. When we see men overdoing their masculinity, we can assume that they haven’t been raised by men, that they have taken cultural stereotypes literally, and that they are scared they aren’t being manly enough.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)

    We carved not a line, and we raised not a stone,
    But we left him alone with his glory.
    Charles Wolfe (1791–1823)

    The child hand raised to reach the holding hand. Hold the old holding hand. Hold and be held.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)
