The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.
All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.

Men are like wine - some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.
Pope John XXIII
History has taught us over and over again that freedom is not free. When push comes to shove, the ultimate protectors of freedom and liberty are the brave men and women in our armed forces. Throughout our history, they've answered the call in bravery and sacrifice.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S Truman
Men are liars. We'll lie about lying if we have to. I'm an algebra liar. I figure two good lies make a positive.
Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.
Susan B. Anthony

One of my most vivid memories of the mid-1950s is of crying into a washbasin full of soapy grey baby clothes - there were no washing machines - while my handsome and adored husband was off playing football in the park on Sunday morning with all the delightful young men who had been friends to both of us at Cambridge three years earlier.
I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will.
Henry David Thoreau
Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records.
William Arthur Ward
There's three things men always talk about - women, sports, and cars.
There was a time when men thought it was sexy to have a housewife waiting for him to come home from work in her slippers, but in modern society, I think an independent woman is even more sexy.

Men are what their mothers made them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I see when men love women. They give them but a little of their lives. But women when they love give everything.

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
