Big Spender

Sean Connery

Marcello Mastroianni

Montgomery Clift

David Bowie by Neal Preston

The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a
Man of distinction
A real big spender
Good looking, so refined
Say wouldn't you like to know
What's going on in my mind

So let me get right to the point
I don't pop my cork
For every guy I see
Hey big spender
Spend a little time with me

Wouldn't you like to have fun, fun, fun
Hows about a few laughs, laughs
I could show you a good time
Let me show you a good time

The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a man of distinction,
A real big spender
Good looking, so refined
Say wouldn't you like to know what's going
On in my mind

So let me get right to the point
I don't pop my cork for every guy I see
Hey big spender
Hey big spender
Hey big spender
Spend a little time with me

Christian Bale

It's not the men in my life, but the life in my men.

-Mae West

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

-Thomas E. Lawrence

Men are much more agressive with their advances.

-Dave Navarro

Men think about women. Women think about what men think about them.
-Peter Ustinov

He is every other inch a gentleman. -Rebecca West

Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.

-William Shakespeare

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
-Edmund Burke

As far as men go, it is not what they are that interests me, but what they can become.
-Jean-Paul Sartre

Men are only as great as they are kind.

-Elbert Hubbard

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. -
Abraham Lincoln

Only the wisest and stupidest of men never change.


The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.
-Henry David Thoreau

Ethan Hawke by Michael Thompson

My theory is that men are no more liberated than women. -Indira Gandhi

No man stands so straight as when he stoops to help a boy. -Knights of Pythagoras

Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then. -Katharine Hepburn

When a man of forty falls in love with a girl of twenty, it isn't her youth he is seeking but his own. -Lenore Coffee

The tragedy of machismo is that a man is never quite man enough. -Germaine Greer

There is nothing men are so generous of as advice.

-Francois de La Rochefoucauld

It takes a woman twenty years to make a man of her son, and another woman twenty minutes to make a fool of him. -Helen Rowland

A gentleman is simply a patient wolf. -Lana Turner

If men can run the world, why can't they stop wearing neckties? How intelligent is it to start the day by tying a little noose around your neck? -Linda Ellerbee

There is no female Mozart because there is no female Jack the Ripper. -Camille Paglia

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

A man's heart may have a secret sanctuary where only one woman may enter, but it is full of little anterooms which are seldom vacant. -Helen Rowland

A lot of guys think the larger a woman's breasts are, the less intelligent she is. I don't think it works like that. I think it's the opposite. I think the larger a woman's breasts are, the less intelligent the men become. -Anita Wise

Viggo Mortensen

Macho doesn't prove mucho. -Zsa Zsa Gabor

The first rule of business is: Do other men for they would do you. -Charles Dickens

Why do men chase women they have no intention of marrying? The same urge that makes dogs chase cars they have no intention of driving. -Anonymous

It takes two men to make one brother.
-Israel Zangwill

In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, they had better aim at something high.
-Henry David Thoreau

Give a man a free hand and he'll run it all over you.
-Mae West

Women may be able to fake orgasms, but men can fake whole relationships. -James Shubert

Men are only as loyal as their options. -Bill Maher

Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show themselves great.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Show me a woman who doesn't feel guilty and I'll show you a man. -Erica Jong

There are a great many men valued in society who have nothing to recommend them but serviceable vices.

-Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Men always want to be a woman's first love - women like to be a man's last romance.
-Oscar Wilde

Johnny Depp

Good men must not obey the laws too well.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

What is the difference between men and women? A woman wants one man to satisfy her every need, and a man wants every woman to satisfy his one need.

But men are men; the best sometimes forget.

-William Shakespeare

Men lose more conquests by their own awkwardness than by any virtue in the woman. -Ninon de Lenclos

Don't accept rides from strange men - and remember that all men are as strange as hell. -Robin Morgan

In every society some men are born to rule, and some to advise.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

'Tis strange what a man may do, and a woman yet think him an angel. -William Makepeace Thackeray

Guys are like roses. You've got to watch out for the pricks. -Anonymous

A hard man is good to find. -Mae West

A man who marries his mistress leaves a vacancy in that position. -Oscar Wilde

Men want a woman whom they can turn on and off like a light switch. -Ian Fleming

The average man is more interested in a woman who is interested in him than he is in a woman with beautiful legs. -Marlene Dietrich

There is one thing I would break up over, & that is if she caught me with another woman. I won't stand for that. -Steve Martin

George Clooney by Michael Thompson

Who made getting laid an absolute good? If I wanted, I could walk around in Gucci shoes or flip flops or whatever insecure douchebags wear these days and have random, abusive, void-compensating sex with people. I work on Wall Street; I could buy and sell your ass. Or any ass, really. And there are people I work with that do.

But you know what? When people grow up and get out of college and maybe spend 5 minutes thinking about people other than themselves, you learn that satisfying your sexual emptiness isn't what women were built for. You learn that this Tucker Max brand of narcissistic, predatory crap is meaningless and hurtful. You learn that it's not about how bitchin' you are, brah; you learn that it's about how the forces within you with the power to contribute to the world have withered away. Then, at some point, you become a citizen of the world and stop making every waking moment about you and your penis. Maybe. I don't have much hope for you, but some of us men actually grow the fuck up. -ADismalScience

A home without books is a body without soul.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

What's the good of a home if you are never in it?
-George Grossmith and Weedon Grossmith

A comfortable house is a great source of happiness. It ranks immediately after health and a good conscience.

-Sydney Smith

Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need.
-Sarah Ban Breathnach

If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

A House is Not a Home


A chair is still a chair
Even when there's no one sitting there
But a chair is not a house
And a house is not a home
When there's no one there to hold you tight,
And no one there you can kiss good night.

A room is still a room
Even when there's nothing there but gloom;
But a room is not a house,
And a house is not a home
When the two of us are far apart
And one of us has a broken heart.

Now and then I call your name
And suddenly your face appears
But it's just a crazy game
When it ends it ends in tears.

Darling, have a heart,
Don't let one mistake keep us apart.
I'm not meant to live alone. Turn this house into a home.
When I climb the stair and turn the key,
Oh, please be there still in love with me.

A House is Not a Home
Burt Bacharach & Hal David
