I definitely think that, for a woman, the biggest turn-on is the mind. Otherwise, obviously you want someone who keeps up with himself and has self-respect and self-confidence.
I feel that no one should be ashamed or have fear or doubt within themselves when they speak about the roots or Africa wherein I and I originate from. It's like an individual who tries to disown himself, and to me, it is a form of defeat by disowning yourself.
It is in self-limitation that a master first shows himself.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
When a man points a finger at someone else, he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing at himself.
When a man asks himself what is meant by action he proves that he isn't a man of action. Action is a lack of balance. In order to act you must be somewhat insane. A reasonably sensible man is satisfied with thinking.
James A. Baldwin
I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.
Robert E. Lee
My father was very disappointed by war and fighting. And he thought language could help us out of cycles of revenge and animosity. And so, as a journalist, he always found himself asking lots of questions and trying to gather information. He was always very clear to underscore the fact that Jewish people and Arab people were brother and sister.
Naomi Shihab Nye
He who conquers others is strong; He who conquers himself is mighty.
The true purpose of education is to teach a man to carry himself triumphant to the sunset.
Liberty Hyde Bailey
Our government... teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.
Louis D. Brandeis
The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.
He who seeks truth shall find beauty. He who seeks beauty shall find vanity. He who seeks order shall find gratification. He who seeks gratification shall be disappointed. He who considers himself the servant of his fellow beings shall find the joy of self-expression. He who seeks self-expression shall fall into the pit of arrogance.
When people do not respect us we are sharply offended; yet in his private heart no man much respects himself.
When a man assumes a public trust he should consider himself a public property.
He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened.
The most common lie is that which one lies to himself; lying to others is relatively an exception.
I really believe that everyone has a talent, ability, or skill that he can mine to support himself and to succeed in life.
The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.
I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights.
No man will be a sailor who has contrivance enough to get himself into a jail; for being in a ship is being in a jail, with the chance of being drowned... a man in a jail has more room, better food, and commonly better company.
There are things which a man is afraid to tell even to himself, and every decent man has a number of such things stored away in his mind.
To himself everyone is immortal; he may know that he is going to die, but he can never know that he is dead.
There is no road too long to the man who advances deliberately and without undue haste; there are no honors too distant to the man who prepares himself for them with patience.
Jean de la Bruyere
The superior man blames himself. The inferior man blames others.
The leader must aim high, see big, judge widely, thus setting himself apart form the ordinary people who debate in narrow confines.
