Nietzche . . . he was a confirmed Life Force worshipper. It was he who raked up the Superman, who is as old as Prometheus; and the 20th century will run after this newest of the old crazes when it gets tired of the world, the flesh, and your humble servant.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
         (act III)

Man is of soul and body, formed for deeds
  Of high resolve; on fancy's boldest wing.

Of the king's creation you may be; but he who makes a count, ne'er made a man.

Man's wretched state,
  That floures so fresh at morne, and fades at evening late.
      - Edmund Spenser, The Faerie Queene
         (bk. III, canto IX, st. 39)

A Christian is the gentlest of men; but then he is a man.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Give us a man of God's own mould
  Born to marshall his fellow-men;
    One whose fame is not bought and sold
      At the stroke of a politician's pen.
        Give us the man of thousands ten,
          Fit to do as well as to plan;
            Give us a rallying-cry, and then
              Abraham Lincoln, give us a Man.
      - Edmund Clarence Stedman, Give us a Man

A man that is temperate, generous, valiant, chaste, faithful, and honest, may, at the same time, have wit, humour, mirth, good breeding, and gallantry. While he exerts these latter qualities, twenty occasions might be invented to show he is master of the other noble virtues.
      - Sir Richard Steele

Man is a substance clad in shadows.
      - John Sterling

Titles of honour are like the impressions on coin--which add no value to gold and silver, but only render brass current.

A man's body and his mind, with the utmost reverence to both I speak it, are exactly like a jerkin and a jerkin's lining;--rumple the one,--you rumple the other.
      - Laurence Sterne,
        The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman
         (bk. III, ch. IV)

When I beheld this I sighed, and said within myself, Surely man is a Broomstick!
      - Jonathan Swift,
        A Meditation upon a Broomstick

Man has been lent, not given, to life.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

Man is man, and master of his fate.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        Enid--Song of Fortune and Her Wheel

Ah God, for a man with heart, head, hand,
  Like some of the simple great gone
    Forever and ever by,
      One still strong man in a blatant land,
        Whatever they call him, what care I,
          Aristocrat, democrat, autocrat--one
            Who can rule and dare not lie.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Maud (X, 5)

I am a part of all that I have met;
  Yet all experience is an arch wherethro'
    Gleams that untravl'd world whose margin fades
      Forever and forever when I move.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Ulysses (l. 18)

I am a man, nothing that is human do I think unbecoming in me.
  [Lat., Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto.]
      - Terence (Publius Terentius Afer),

Oh, we are ridiculous animals; and if the angels have any fun in them, how we must divert them!
      - Horace (Horatio) Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford

The very substance which last week was grazing in the field, waving in the milk pail, or growing in the garden, is now become part of the man.
      - Isaac Watts

Every want, not of a low kind, physical as well as moral, which the human breast feels, and which brutes do not feel, and cannot feel, raises man by so much in the scale of existence, and is a clear proof, and a direct instance, of the favor of God toward his so much favored human offspring.
      - Daniel Webster
