"I seem to have been like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
- Sir Isaac Newton
"A MAN’S CONTINENT WAY 1. Contain your SEED in your LOINS until you find a WOMAN who truly deserves to receive it. 2. Contain your PLANS in your MIND until you can ACT on them. 3. Contain your FEELINGS in your HEART until you are CALM. 4. Contain your STRENGTH in your LIMBS until you are called to a worthy CHALLENGE. 5. Contain your FEARS in your SOUL until your COURAGE overcomes them. 6. Contain your MONEY in your PURSE until you can buy something truly VALUABLE. 7. Contain your HUNGER in your STOMACH until you have cooked a manly FEAST. 8. Contain your WORDS in your MOUTH until everyone else has SPOKEN. 9. Contain your ANGER in your BELLY until you find your true ENEMY. 10. Contain your PLEASURE in your BODY until you are ALONE. CONTAIN EVERYTHING UNTIL IT IS RIPE FOR HARVEST!!"
"Smart people learn from their mistakes. But the really sharp ones learn from the mistakes of others. "

"Women are born with and become aware of an awesome power to shape men’s behavior very early in life. Understanding that this power over men will lessen dramatically as her body ages, a modern woman often does shockingly abhorrent things to amplify and retain her power: wedding vows, larcenous divorces, child support, and sexless marriages."

"Remember when girls had diaries, and they would freak out if their brother even touched the cover? We’ve come a long way."

"I’m of the opinion that most PUA tactics are essentially about dogging and badgering a female and throwing booze and bullshit at her until she just gives in and decides it would be easier to blow your than to try to get you to fuck off."
"Most whores are just honest women. Most women are just dishonest whores. By the way, that is just as much an indictment of men as it is women. Men get what they pay for, and we are notoriously poor shoppers."
"I am a Man. Hath not a Man eyes? Hath not a Man hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Woman is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?"
- Triklops after Shakespeare (The Merchant of Venice)
"What a great advantage a man can have over women, if he only knew what cold and calculating thoughts are going through her mind.... while her eyes are brimming with tears."
- Esther Vilar
"I’m still waiting for my white male privilege membership card. Must have gotten lost in the mail."
"How in the HELL could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 AM by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush his teeth and hair and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were expected to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?"
- Charles Bukowski, Factotum 1975
"If you are a "potential rapist" for buying a woman a drink, then she's already a "potential thief and murderer" of your freedom and well-being."
