Men

Famous quotes containing the word men:

    In literary circles, the men of trust and consideration, bookmakers, editors, university deans and professors, bishops, too, were by no means men of the largest literary talent, but usually of a low and ordinary intellectuality, with a sort of mercantile activity and working talent. Indifferent hacks and mediocrities tower, by pushing their forces to a lucrative point, or by working power, over multitudes of superior men, in Old as in New England.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Did the first men who thought of fasting put themselves on this regimen on their physician’s order, because they had indigestion?
    Voltaire [Fran├žois Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
