Silver is the king's stamp; man God's stamp, and a woman is man's stamp; we are not current till we pass from one man to another.
      - John Webster, Northward Ho (I, 186),
        (Hazlitt's edition)

Man, considered not merely as an organized being, but as a rational agent and a member of society, is perhaps the most wonderfully contrived, and to us the most interesting specimen of Divine wisdom that we have any knowledge of.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

A man is a great thing upon the earth and through eternity; but every jot of the greatness of man is unfolded out of woman.
      - Walt Whitman

I am an acme of thing accomplished, and I am encloser of things to be.
      - Walt Whitman, Song of Myself (44)

Man is more than constitutions.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

When faith is lost, when honor dies,
  The man is dead!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, Ichabod (st. 8)

The soul of man createth its own destiny of power; and as the trial is intenser here, his being hath a nobler strength in heaven.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis

I weigh the man, not his title: 'tis not the king's inscription can make the metal better or heavier.
      - William Wycherley, Plain Dealer
         (act I, sc. 1)

Poor pensioner on the bounty of an hour.
      - Edward Young

How poor, how rich, how abject, how august,
  How complicate, how wonderful, is man!
    How passing wonder He, who made him such!
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night I, l. 68)

Ah! how unjust to nature, and himself,
  Is thoughtless, thankless, inconsistent man.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night II, l. 112)
