The Art of Manly Virtue

What does it mean to be a great man?


The Art of Manly Virtue

What is NOT manly?

To start, let us start from a negative perspective:

What is NOT manly?

My thoughts:

  1. Complaining
  2. Bewailing one’s lot
  3. Blaming others
  4. Laziness and sloth
  5. Dependence on others
  6. Inflicting harm on oneself or others
  7. Pettiness (petty talk)
  8. Physically attacking and abusing women, one’s spouse, children.

For men

I cannot speak for women, because I’m not a woman. Let me just speak for us men.

You decide.

What’s manly? What isn’t? You decide.
