Famous quotes containing the word male:

    Early to rise and early to bed makes a male healthy and wealthy and dead.
    James Thurber (1894–1961)

    Every modern male has, lying at the bottom of his psyche, a large, primitive being covered with hair down to his feet. Making contact with this Wild Man is the step the Eighties male or the Nineties male has yet to take. That bucketing-out process has yet to begin in our contemporary culture.
    Robert Bly (b. 1926)

    Whiffle [whine and wheeze and snuff and sniffle]: The annoying scratchy sound made by weepy feminists as they lament the sufferings of women and, houndlike, sniff out evidence of male oppression.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)
