"I am a Man. Hath not a Man eyes? Hath not a Man hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Woman is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?"
- Triklops after Shakespeare (The Merchant of Venice)
"Once upon a time, I would court a girl. I would wine and dine. We would talk for hours on the phone getting to know each other. I always believed it was the thoughtful little things that mattered most. Now: I get done with her by 11:00pm so she can drive herself home."
- Johnny Wayne
"Appeasing women's relentless demands is like feeding fish to a cat and expecting it become a vegetarian."

"Why does a man wear a wedding ring?
MAN: It’s a symbol of my commitment to her.
Why does a woman wear a wedding ring?

"How in the HELL could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 AM by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush his teeth and hair and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were expected to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?"
- Charles Bukowski, Factotum 1975
"If you are a "potential rapist" for buying a woman a drink, then she's already a "potential thief and murderer" of your freedom and well-being."
"Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, perhaps you ought to setup a life you don't need to escape from. "
- Primus Pilus on women who say "I like to travel" as if it somehow makes them interesting.
"I’ve come to realiZe that the red pill goes deeper than even that. It’s questioning the prevailing attitudes, your own behavior, thoughts and beliefs even with a benign, bemused skepticism. Using your imagination to better your position according to your will in the face of “blue pillers” who view imagination and hypotheticals as mere toys to be played with while drinking themselves into a spiritual coma. “Show me a mans friends and I’ll show you his future” it has been said. But cream only rises to the top because of its inherent difference to the substances surrounding it. The higher a pyramid, the larger the difference between the top and bottom. Go your own way. In all the ways you can conceive of, with all your heart and soul. And never look back."
"Having the the kid, saying “fuck you” to the father and expecting child support.... is like me telling my boss: "Hey, boss! Go FUK yourself bro! And by the way, I’ll come to work when I damn well feel like it, and send my paychecks on the 1st and 15th you piece of sh!t."
- Deus Ex Machina
