The thing that differentiates man from animals is money. -Gertrude Stein
If a man who cannot count finds a four-leaf clover, is he lucky? ~Stanislaw J. Lec
Anything will fit a naked man.

My opinion from a straight man;
A woman wants to marry another
woman, go for it.
A man wants to marry another
man, go for it.
For people who keep saying that
marriage should be between a man
and a woman, fine. But don’t be
spouting the venom and bullshit
by putting the Gays and Lesbians
They don’t bother me, and they are
not bothering you, the so called
righteous ones. Get over it.
It’s not the end of the fucking
You never see animals going through the absurd and often horrible fooleries of magic and religion. Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, intelligent enough.
– Aldous Huxley
“The simple function of man is to live, not just exist.”
– Jack London
Every man’s memory is
his private literature.
“It is a waste of energy to be angry with a man who behaves badly, just as it is to be angry with a car that won’t go.”
– Bertrand Russell
“The intention that man should be happy is not in the plan of Creation.”
– Sigmund Freud
Maybe he’s right, maybe not.
“From the happy expression on their faces you might have supposed that they welcomed the war. I have met with men who loved stamps, and stones, and snakes, but I could not imagine any man loving war.” –
Reading makes a full man,
meditation a profound mind,
discourse a clear man.

The Funniest Staff Meeting
The boss of a Madison Avenue advertising agency called a spontaneous staff meeting in the middle of a particularly stressful week. (This is one sharp boss!) When everyone gathered, the boss, who understood the benefits of having fun, told the burnt out staff the purpose of the meeting was to have a quick contest. The theme: Viagra advertising slogans. The only rule was they had to use past ad slogans, originally written for other products that captured the essence of Viagra. Slight variations were acceptable.
About 7 minutes later, they turned in their suggestions and created a Top 10 List.. With all the laughter and camaraderie, the rest of the week went very well for everyone! The top 10 were:
10. Viagra, Whaazzzz up!
9. Viagra, The quicker pecker picker upper.
8. Viagra, like a rock!
7. Viagra, When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight.
6. Viagra, Be all that you can be.
5. Viagra, Reach out and touch someone.
4. Viagra, Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.
3. Viagra, Home of the whopper!
2. Viagra, We bring good things to Life!
And the unanimous number one slogan:
1. This is your peepee… This is your peepee on drugs.
A man in debt is so far a slave.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
All that is great cannot be possessed – and that is one of
the most foolish things man goes on doing. We want to possess.
I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should be burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.
— Jack London
First the man takes a drink,

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed.

Man – a being in search of meaning. — Plato
Habit is habit, and not to be flung out of the window by any man, but coaxed downstairs a step at a time.
– Mark Twain
There is a great deal of truth in the saying that man becomes what he eats. The grosser the food, the grosser the body.
“Through zeal, knowledge is gotten, through lack of zeal,
knowledge is lost; let a man who knows the double path of
gain and loss thus place himself that knowledge may grow.”
