We emphasize that we believe in change because we were born of it, we have lived by it, we prospered and grew great by it. So the ;status quo has never been our god, and we ask no one else to bow down before it.

Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That's their natural and first weapon. She will need her sisterhood.
By virtue of being born to humanity, every human being has a right to the development and fulfillment of his potentialities as a human being.
The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness and human responsibility.
There is an urgent need -- in fact a national survival need -- for invigorating intellectual life, for upgrading the general regard for intellectual excellence. The United States must experience an intellectual renaissance or it will experience defeat. The time cannot be far off -- if indeed it is not already here -- when the strength of a nation, measured in terms of any kind of world competition, will depend less on the number of its bombs than on the number of its learned men.
Politics is war without bloodshed while war is politics with bloodshed.
If the Romans had been obliged to learn Latin they would never have found time to conquer the world.
Socrates had a student named Plato, Plato had a student named Aristotle, and Aristotle had a student named Alexander the Great.
The essence of greatness is the perception that virtue is enough.
Do what you know and perception is converted into character.
Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don't mind, age don't matter.
Forty is the old age of youth, fifty is the youth of old age.
Age does not matter if the matter does not age.
No age or time of life, no position or circumstance, has a monopoly on success. Any age is the right age to start doing!
I buy women shoes and they use them to walk away from me.
Speak clearly, if you speak at all; carve every word before you let it fall.
Self-observation brings man to the realization of the necessity of self-change. And in observing himself a man notices that self-observation itself brings about certain changes in his inner processes. He begins to understand that self-observation is an instrument of self-change, a means of awakening.
If you're not a white male, consider sales seriously. Most employers, regardless of how sexist or racist they may be, will pay for any sales they can get. And they care little for the color or gender of the person who brings that business to the firm. Most will be glad to get the business even if it comes from a green, bisexual Martian.
The open-minded see the truth in different things: the narrow-minded see only the differences.
Men act and women appear. Men look at women. Women watch themselves being looked at.
Back in the days when men were hunters and chest beaters and women spent their whole lives worrying about pregnancy or dying in childbirth, they often had to be taken against their will. Men complained that women were cold, unresponsive, frigid. They wanted their women wanton. They wanted their women wild. Now women were finally learning to be wanton and wild -- and what happened? The men wilted.
Both men and women are fallible. The difference is, women know it.
In our civilization, men are afraid that they will not be men enough and women are afraid that they might be considered only women.
Sometimes I think that the biggest difference between men and women is that more men need to seek out some terrible lurking thing in existence and hurl themselves upon it. Women know where it lives but they can let it alone.
Wisdom and understanding can only become the possession of individual men by travelling the old road of observation, attention, perseverance, and industry.
Till a man can judge whether they be truths or not, his understanding is but little improved, and thus men of much reading, though greatly learned, but may be little knowing.
The key to understanding others is to first understand yourself
To understand one woman is not necessarily to understand any other woman.
Skill in the art of communication is crucial to a leader's success. He can accomplish nothing unless he can communicate effectively.
I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!
In the theory of gender I began from zero. There is no masculine power or privilege I did not covet. But slowly, step by step, decade by decade, I was forced to acknowledge that even a woman of abnormal will cannot escape her hormonal identity.
Before you advise anyone Be yourself! reassess his character.
