Mankind, Man
Engrave this Quote Man is never honestly the fatalist, nor even the stoic. He fights his fate, often desperately. He is forever entering bold exceptions to the rulings of the bench of gods. This fighting, no doubt, makes for human progress, for it favors the strong and the brave. It also makes for beauty, for lesser men try to escape from a hopeless and intolerable world by creating a more lovely one of their own.

-H. L. Mencken
Engrave this Quote For it is mutual trust, even more than mutual interest that holds human associations together. Our friends seldom profit us but they make us feel safe. Marriage is a scheme to accomplish exactly that same end.

Media
Engrave this Quote To the best of my knowledge and belief, the average American newspaper, even of the so-called better sort, is not only quite as bad as Upton Sinclair says it is, but 10 times worse

Men & Women
Engrave this Quote Man is always looking for someone to boast to; woman is always looking for a shoulder to put her head on.

-H. L. Mencken
Engrave this Quote A man's women folk, whatever their outward show of respect for his merit and authority, always regard him secretly as an ass, and with something akin to pity. His most gaudy sayings and doings seldom deceive them; they see the actual man within, and know him for a shallow and pathetic fellow. In this fact, perhaps, lies one of the best proofs of feminine intelligence, or, as the common phrase makes it, feminine intuition.

Money
Engrave this Quote The most valuable of all human possessions, next to a superior and disdainful air, is the reputation of being well-to-do.

-H. L. Mencken
Engrave this Quote The difference between a moral man and a man of honor is that the latter regrets a discreditable act, even when it has worked and he has not been caught.
