Pronounced Close

Famous quotes containing the words pronounced and/or close:

    It is not to everyone’s taste that truth should be pronounced pleasant. But at least let no one believe that error becomes truth when it is pronounced unpleasant.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    What we men share is the experience of having been raised by women in a culture that stopped our fathers from being close enough to teach us how to be men, in a world in which men were discouraged from talking about our masculinity and questioning its roots and its mystique, in a world that glorified masculinity and gave us impossibly unachievable myths of masculine heroics, but no domestic models to teach us how to do it.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)
