Are men and women different creatures? Do we feel things differently? Being a man, I can’t know what a woman feels.

Greedo taught me a lot. I don’t say that about every artist. Some artists might teach me stuff musically, but Greedo taught me stuff about being a man and being a musician and being a creative, and being different from other people.
Kenny Beats
I realize that homosexuality is a serious problem for anyone who is – but then, of course, heterosexuality is a serious problem for anyone who is, too. And being a man is a serious problem and being a woman is, too. Lots of things are problems.
Edward Gorey
Being a good actor isn’t easy. Being a man is even harder. I want to be both before I’m done.
James Dean
For a long time, I felt instinctively irritated – sometimes repelled – by scientific friends’ automatic use of the word ‘mechanism’ for automatic bodily processes. A machine was man-made; it was not a sentient being; a man was not a machine.
A. S. Byatt
Being a depressive should not imply danger any more than being a man or even a human should. Mental illness isn’t a them/us issue; we are all on the scale somewhere. So we must be very careful to resist ignorance and combat the stigma that leads to dangerous silence.
Matt Haig
Think about a guy like Bob Mitchum, with his kind of chest gut not defining itself one way or the other. Was there anybody tougher? Lee Marvin was a marine sniper during the Second World War. They had this sense of themselves, and they had this product of being a man in a masculine way.
Joe Carnahan
I still feel like that 17-year-old-kid that fell in love with country music, but I also am allowed to write songs about being a man, too, which I think is the coolest place I’ve ever been in my life.
Dierks Bentley
For my teen years and all of my twenties it felt like I was trying to live up to this expectation of being a man and what that meant – not just what clothes I wore, but how I acted.
Courtney Act
I have no objection to a man being a man, however masculine that may be.
Agnes Smedley
It is massive progress in the space of a year being a Man United regular and playing for Wales. But things happen so quickly in football you have to be ready for anything.
Daniel James
I guess I just do being a man different than some.
Ezra Furman
Homeboy Industries is a healing center for broken children. I was a broken child, and they showed me how to put all those pieces back together. It’s not about being a gangster. It’s about being a man or a woman trying to recover and live better.
Richard Cabral

I love watching Marty Scorsese’s films, but they always make me feel terrible about being a man.
Martin Donovan
I’ve always thought feminism had a lot to say about both genders, as it is hard to talk about one without the other. I think men and women alike would benefit from men having a more fluid idea of what being a man is.
Matt Haig
Biggest man law – be a man. Simple: be a man, definition of being a man is being a man. And don’t let your woman turn you into a little boy.
Eddie Griffin
The lead singer of Ocean Colour Scene told me I looked like David Beckham when I interviewed him for MTV. I had short hair, was early in my career and still trying to find my confidence. Being a Man United fan, I should have taken it as a compliment; but it was meant unkindly.
Edith Bowman
Being a man repeller becomes a process of elimination. If a guy is only really into your outfit and won’t date you because of what you’re wearing, they are too driven by the female exterior and don’t care about your intellect.
Leandra Medine
Part of being a man is learning to take responsibility for your successes and for your failures. You can’t go blaming others or being jealous. Seeing somebody else’s success as your failure is a cancerous way to live.
Kevin Bacon
Our society constantly promotes role models for masculinity, from superheroes to politicians, where the concept of being a ‘man’ is based in their ability to be tough, dominant – and even violent when required.
Deeyah Khan
I am happy being a man in a dress. Some people get confused and think I’m a trans woman, but I’m strict about the difference. What I do is performance, it’s staged, it’s glamour – it’s not real life. But for trans people, being born in the wrong body – there’s nothing glamorous or easy about that.
Conchita Wurst
In the end, my story, in Iraq and afterward, is about more than just killing people or even fighting for my country. It’s about being a man. And it’s about love as well as hate.
Chris Kyle
I have had a small handful of truly blatantly discriminatory experiences for being transgender, but the vast majority are simply the differences between being a man versus being a woman in science and business.
Vivienne Ming
You act at being a man, and before you know it, you are one.
Richard Madden
