Machismo quotes by Elizabeth Peters
#1. Though Emerson is a firm believer in the equality of the female sex, he has some secret reservations, and one of them involves the car. (There is something about these machines that makes men want to pound their chests and roar like gorillas. I speak figuratively, of course.) #Quote by Elizabeth Peters
Machismo quotes by Louise Doughty
#2. We are taught we can redeem them, she said to me once. We are taught it as soon as we can read. We can turn the beast into a prince, if only we love him enough. #Quote by Louise Doughty
Machismo quotes by Yoko Ono
#3. In the '60s we fought for peace, when the Vietnam war was on. We were against the cops and against the politicians, and there was a lot of waving banners and all that. And I think in a way, just as they were enjoying that machoism of war, we were enjoying the machismo of being anti-war, you know? #Quote by Yoko Ono
Machismo quotes by Macklemore
#4. Hip-hop was started as a very egocentric, testosterone, machismo-driven art form. The way that people are trying to take away that masculinity that is a such an intrinsical part of hip-hop music. #Quote by Macklemore
Machismo quotes by Nick Offerman
#5. I have a very healthy growth of both head and facial hair. People always want to attribute further superhuman powers to me. It's funny the way the audience really seems to want me, Nick the actor, to exhibit the same machismo as Ron Swanson. #Quote by Nick Offerman
Machismo quotes by Jennifer Estep
#6. The two men stared at each other. Assumptions were made, judgments rendered, dicks measured. #Quote by Jennifer Estep
Machismo quotes by Stan Goff
#7. Democrat flaks jump on this like ducks on a June-bug, and in the process themselves reproduce the sick militarism of this culture that automatically valorizes anyone who wears a uniform. How dare you insult a soldier! Like its some sacred calling instead of an imperial employment program steeped in the culture of machismo and misogyny.(And you can gasp as theatrically as you want I spent more than two decades wearing a uniform that is exactly what it is.) #Quote by Stan Goff
Machismo quotes by Samanth Subramanian
#8. [Speaking to 29-year-old ex-guerrilla]

'I see it as a process. First, yes, you do negotiate. But if that does not work, then you have to use violence to get what you need. Even if you have to bomb a school.' There was a swagger to that statement, a perverted machismo: only a real man understands the necessity of bombing a school. #Quote by Samanth Subramanian
Machismo quotes by Dick Gephardt
#9. Diplomacy matters. Burden-sharing matters. Follow-through matters. And yes, sustaining the peace is harder, more complex and often costlier than winning the war itself. No matter the surge of momentary machismo
as gratifying as it may be for some
it's short-sighted and wrong to simply go it alone. #Quote by Dick Gephardt
Machismo quotes by Rosecrans Baldwin
#10. I actually don't think there is machismo in America, unless it's the cowboy type - the silent, smoking brooder. #Quote by Rosecrans Baldwin
Machismo quotes by Ken Kesey
#11. Sweeping the dorm soon's it's empty, I'm after dust mice under his bed when I get a smell of something that makes me realize for the first time since I been in the hospital that the big dorm full of beds, sleeps forty grown men, has always been sticky with a thousand other smells - smells of germicide, zinc ointment, and foot powder, smell of piss and sour old-man manure, of Pablum and eyewash, of musty shorts and socks musty even when they're fresh back from the laundry, the stiff odor of starch in the linen, the acid stench of morning mouths, the banana smell of machine oil, and sometimes the smell of singed hair - but never before now, before he came in, the man smell of dust and dirt from the open fields, and sweat, and work. #Quote by Ken Kesey
Machismo quotes by Rosecrans Baldwin
#12. Machismo requires Latin blood. I'd say I never experienced machismo up close until I worked in a French office; the typical Wall Street gunner has the soul of a coffee filter in comparison. #Quote by Rosecrans Baldwin
Machismo quotes by Jon Miller
#13. Many in business feel they have to live up to a machismo archetype of the big-swinging-dick business leader #Quote by Jon Miller
Machismo quotes by Ann Coulter
#14. The not-visibly-insane Democrats all claim they'll get rough with the terrorists, but they can't even face Brit Hume. In case you missed this profile in Democrat machismo, the Democratic presidential candidates are refusing to participate in a debate hosted by Fox News Channel because the hosts are "biased." But they'll face down Mahmoud Ahmadinejad! At this, even Hillary Clinton was thinking, "Come on, guys let's grow a pair. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Machismo quotes by Brent Weeks
#15. This is what it is to grow up. It is to live beyond the blind rush of passion, or hate, or green luxin, or battle juice. It is to see what must be done, and to do it, without feeling a great desire or a great hatred or a great love. It is to confront fear, naked. No armor of bombast or machismo. Just duty, and love for one's fellows. Not love felt, not the love that compelled action without thought, but love chosen deliberately. I am the best person to do this thing, it said, though I may die doing it. #Quote by Brent Weeks
Machismo quotes by Germaine Greer
#16. The tragedy of machismo is that a man is never quite man enough. #Quote by Germaine Greer
Machismo quotes by Terry Pratchett
#17. Yeah!" said the Dean, now in a grip of a wild, unwizardly machismo. "We're mean! Yeah! Are we mean?"
The Archchancellor raised his eyebrows, and then turned to the rest of the wizards.
"Are we mean?" he said.
"Er.. I'm feeling reasonably mean," said the Lecturer of Recent Runes.
"I'm definitely very mean, I think," said the Bursar. "It's having no boots that does it," he added.
"I'll be mean if everyone else is," said the Senior Wrangler.
The Archchancellor turned back to the Dean.
"Yes," he said, "it appears that we are all mean."
"Yo!" said the Dean.
"Yo what?" said Ridcully.
"It's not a yo what, it's just a yo," said the Senior Wrangler, behind him. "It's a general street greeting and affirmative with convivial military ingroup and masculine bonding-ritual overtones."
"What? What, like 'jolly good'?" said Ridcully.
"I suppose so..." said the Senior Wrangler, reluctantly. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Machismo quotes by Anonymous
#18. Rude wasn't so much a heel who happened to be attractive as he was a 100 percent pure concentrate of machismo and self-absorption, a Lothario for his own sake. He could have any woman he wanted, but his objective was never love or even lust; it was heterosexual avidity purely for show. And he seemed not so much to objectify women as to coolly demean them. The object of his affection was solely himself. It was hardcore pornography minus the sex.* #Quote by Anonymous
Machismo quotes by Tibby Armstrong
#19. I don't care if you wear white to your coming-out party and pretend to be a virgin, but you're gay, Kit. G-A-Y. Gay! So gay, fairies everywhere will weep that your machismo avoided their gaydar for so long. #Quote by Tibby Armstrong
Machismo quotes by Raquel Cepeda
#20. Women destroy me. I allow them to. #Quote by Raquel Cepeda
Machismo quotes by Abhishek Bachchan
#21. I'm not a model; hence I don't see the reason to have a six-pack abs. I can pull off a tough and rugged look of a cop in 'Dhoom' series without taking my shirt off. Cops don't have to move around without a shirt to flaunt their machismo. What makes the character of a cop stand out is his attitude and not his six-pack abs. #Quote by Abhishek Bachchan
Machismo quotes by Isabel Allende
#22. If women have influence, it is only - and then only sometimes - within their home. Men control all the political and economic power, the culture and customs; they proclaim the laws and apply them as they wish, and when social pressures and the legal apparatus are not sufficient to subdue the most rebellious women, the Church steps in with its incontestable patriarchal seal. What is unforgivable, though, is that it is women who perpetuate and reinforce the system, continuing to raise arrogant sons and servile daughters. If they would agree to revise the standards, they could end machismo in one generation. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Machismo quotes by Tom Peters
#23. One reason (among many) that women may well take over the world of "virtual enterprises" is that they seem to have a greater instinct for networking. And the unfettered-by-machismo males who have taken to networking will do better than those who shun it as "sissy stuff." But truth is, it has always been the age of "networkers"; and in an era where organizations depend more and more on tenuously connected outsiders to get the job done, it will only become so. #Quote by Tom Peters
Machismo quotes by Dan Brown
#24. Symbologists often remarked that France-a country renowned for machismo, womanizing, and diminutive insecure leaders like Napoleon and Pepin the Short-could not have chosen a more apt national emblem than a thousand-foot phallus. #Quote by Dan Brown
Machismo quotes by John Darnielle
#25. I do have a romantic interest in outlasting everybody else. There's a sort of sad machismo to singer-songwriters, I think. #Quote by John Darnielle
Machismo quotes by David Sedaris
#26. Boys who spent their weekends making banana nut muffins did not, as a rule, excel in the art of hand-to-hand combat. #Quote by David Sedaris
Machismo quotes by Jimmy Buffett
#27. The right combination of guilt and machismo has sent many a fool out into the jungle when he should have stayed home. #Quote by Jimmy Buffett
Machismo quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#28. Some men believe a girl squirting under their touch is a sign of their own sex appeal and machismo. It seems a shame to pee on their parade, but the truth is, the methodical throb of a vibrator in the right place and in the right hands – even your own hand – achieves more consistent results. #Quote by Chloe Thurlow
Machismo quotes by Patrick S. Tomlinson
#29. There are only two ways a child saddled with a name like Maximus Tiberius turns out. He either becomes confidence personified, or he ends up trapped inside the name like a cruel irony. This child, who already had a beer in each hand and a girl under each arm, had settled on the first option early in life. #Quote by Patrick S. Tomlinson
Machismo quotes by Cory Booker
#30. I have seen too many of my male friends - no matter whether they're on the football field or inside a church - bash gays and then revel in their machismo or piety. #Quote by Cory Booker
Machismo quotes by Mason Cooley
#31. Political correctness is driving machismo underground and recalling effeminacy from exile. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Machismo quotes by Alan Lawrence Sitomer
#32. Latino men suffer from too much machismo. They think they're tough. They think they're cool. They think they're entitled to order a women around just because we have a vagina. La verdad es they're just a bunch of mama's boys. Mama's boys who okay with their penises. #Quote by Alan Lawrence Sitomer
Machismo quotes by Joe Carnahan
#33. So much of Hollywood is this kind of overly machismo, nonsensical view of masculinity, which I just don't find honest. I think it's this idea of - you know, we're told, well, 'Be a man, be a man.' But what does that mean, exactly? Does that mean you can't carry yourself with any fear? That you can't acknowledge that you're scared? #Quote by Joe Carnahan
Machismo quotes by Cornel West
#34. To be "bad" is good not simply because it subverts the language of the dominant white culture but also because it imposes a unique kind of order for young black men on their own distinctive chaos and solicits an attention that makes others pull back with some trepidation. This young black male style is a form of self-identification and resistance in a hostile culture; it also is an instance of machismo identity ready for violent encounters. #Quote by Cornel West
Machismo quotes by Juan Carlos Copes
#35. The tango is the man and woman in search of each other. It is the search for an embrace, a way to be together, when the man feels that he is a male and the woman feels that she is female, without machismo. She likes to be led; he likes to lead. Disagreements may occur later or they may not. When that moment comes, it is important to have positive and productive dialogue, fifty-fifty. The music arouses and torments, the dance is the coupling of two people defenseless against the world and powerless to change things. #Quote by Juan Carlos Copes
Machismo quotes by Nora Roberts
#36. Is there anything more annoying than machismo? #Quote by Nora Roberts
Machismo quotes by Mason Cooley
#37. Machismo makes no provision for preparing lunch, doing the laundry, or minding the baby. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Machismo quotes by Anonymous
#38. normally hirsute Kshatriya men who took body hair to be a sign of machismo. #Quote by Anonymous
Machismo quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#39. There's more that we need to be liberated from: maybe a system that prizes competition and ruthlessness and short-term thinking and rugged individualism, a system that serves environmental destruction and limitless consumption so well - that arrangement you can call capitalism. It embodies the worst of machismo while it destroys what's best on Earth. More men fit into it better, but it doesn't really serve any of us. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Machismo quotes by Andre The BFG
#40. Think about it. When you reach 18 you're no longer an underage drinker. This means that drinking is no longer an act of rebellion, and so there's no point in doing it any more. You've got to find some other way of looking hard in front of your friends, like attaching weights to your testicles and swimming naked through the snapping turtle pond at the zoo #Quote by Andre The BFG
Machismo quotes by Matt Wallace
#41. To be stabbed by a woman you didn't even sleep with for several years first," Ryland said. "Shameful. Had you an ounce of male pride you'd hang yourself with your own penis. #Quote by Matt Wallace
Machismo quotes by Ann Coulter
#42. Hispanics are half as likely to enlist in the military as either whites or blacks. The recruit-to-population ratio for whites is 1.06. For blacks it is 1.08. For Hispanics, it's only 0.65. The media not only neglect to highlight this particular underrepresentation, they lie about it. An article published by the Population Reference Bureau - subsidized by taxpayers - is titled: "Latinos Claim Larger Share of U.S. Military Personnel." To the untrained eye, this would seem to be saying that Latinos claim a larger share of U.S. military personnel. In fact, however, by "larger share," the headline means "larger" compared with the past - not compared with other groups. The actual article admits that Hispanics constitute less than 12 percent of all enlistees, compared with 16 percent of the civilian workforce. Moreover, despite their machismo culture, a majority of Hispanic troops are women.15 #Quote by Ann Coulter
Machismo quotes by Lorrie Moore
#43. Pleasantness was the machismo of the Midwest. There was something athletic about it. You flexed your face into a smile and let it hover there like the dare of a cat. #Quote by Lorrie Moore
