Famous quotes containing the words solitary and/or man:
“The wonderful scope and variety of female loveliness, if too long suffered to sway us without decision, shall finally confound all power of selection. The confirmed bachelor is, in America, at least, quite as often the victim of a too profound appreciation of the infinite charmingness of woman, as made solitary for life by the legitimate empire of a cold and tasteless temperament.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“Most married couples spend the whole day apart, the woman in the house, the man in the office or study or workshop.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
