Only Boys quotes by Abra Ebner
#1. The only boys I ever saw here had glasses thick enough to be considered bullet proof and GPA's fit for Harvard. #Quote by Abra Ebner
Only Boys quotes by Stella Chess
#2. Four- and five-year-olds' play is permeated with the rankest sexism. No matter what their parents do and say, they play their momand pop roles in ultraconventional style. We've seen little girls whose mothers are doctors absolutely refuse to take the doctors' parts in their play, insisting that "only boys can be doctors," against all reason. Girls do more washing and drying of clothes, dishes, and babies than they've ever seen their own mothers do, and they turn their play husbands into TV-watching drones who do nothing but talk about money. #Quote by Stella Chess
Only Boys quotes by John Irving
#3. They were childless - Dan Needham suggested that their sexual roles might be so "reversed" as to make childbearing difficult - and their attendance at Little League games was marked by a constant disapproval of the sport: that little girls were not allowed to play in the Little League was an example of sexual stereotyping that exercised the Dowlings' humorlessness and fury. Should they have a daughter, they warned, she would play in the Little League. They were a couple with a theme - sadly, it was their only theme, and a small theme, and they overplayed it, but a young couple with such a burning mission was quite interesting to the generally slow, accepting types who were more typical in Gravesend. Mr. Chickering, our fat coach and manager, lived in dread of the day the Dowlings might produce a daughter. Mr. Chickering was of the old school - he believed that only boys should play baseball, and that girls should watch them play, or else play soft-ball. #Quote by John Irving
Only Boys quotes by Alexa Riley
#4. Besides....... who wants a boy? The only boys in our books are the little baby ones the man hero puts inside the heroine. #Quote by Alexa Riley
Only Boys quotes by Goldy Moldavsky
#5. Did I love them because they were the only boys in my life who consistently told me that I was beautiful? Probably. I loved The Ruperts for who they were, sure, but I mostly loved them for how they made me feel. Which was happy. The Ruperts made me happy. The simplest thing to be in the world. And the hardest. #Quote by Goldy Moldavsky
Only Boys quotes by Sara Quin
#6. I would go to jail with only boys. Just to prove I was as tough as you. And when I get out for good behavior, I'll be writing love songs. Silly banging knee songs. #Quote by Sara Quin
Only Boys quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#7. You can't be a doctor. Only boys can be doctors. Leroy's got to be the doctor."
"You're full of shit, Spiegelglass, Leroy's dumber than I am. I got to be doctor because I'm the smart one and being a girl don't matter."
"You'll see. You think you can do what boys do but you're going to be a nurse, no two ways about it. It doesn't matter about brains, brains don't count. What counts is whether you're a boy or a girl."
I hauled off and belted her one. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Only Boys quotes by Veronica Roth
#8. Uriah looked better than he did an hour ago
he washed the blood from his mouth, and some of the color returned to his face. I'm struck, suddenly, by how handsome he is
all his features are proportionate, his eyes dark and lively, his skin bronze-brown. And he has probably always been handsome. Only boys who have been handsome from a young age have that arrogance in their smile. Not like Tobias, who is almost shy when he smiles like he is surprised you bothered to look at him from the first place. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Only Boys quotes by Delano Johnson
#9. Fathers are no longer men, most are only boys who pretend. #Quote by Delano Johnson
Only Boys quotes by Katherine Arden
#10. Only boys and fools think men are first in courage. We do not bear children. #Quote by Katherine Arden
Only Boys quotes by Margaret Atwood
#11. There were swings in one of the parks, but because of our skirts, which might be blow up by the wind and then looked into, we were not to think of taking such a liberty as a swing. Only boys could taste that freedom; only they could swoop and soar; only they could be airborne. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Only Boys quotes by Sarah Cross
#12. And at that age, the only boys I didn't think were gross were dead scientists – and it's not like I wanted to kiss those guys. (No offense, Niels Bohr.) #Quote by Sarah Cross
Only Boys quotes by Ginnifer Goodwin
#13. Why do only boys get to chase? Nuh-uh! If anything, I think this whole sitting back and waiting thing can be self-sabotaging. We have to send up flares. We have to let guys know we're open for business. #Quote by Ginnifer Goodwin
Only Boys quotes by Veronica Roth
#14. Only boys who have been handsome from a young age have that arrogance in their smile. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Only Boys quotes by Carlo Collodi
#15. A boy's appetite grows very fast, and in a few moments the queer, empty feeling had become hunger, and the hunger grew bigger and bigger, until soon he was as ravenous as a bear. #Quote by Carlo Collodi
Only Boys quotes by Rebecca M. Jordan-Young
#16. Normative statements about "women's roles" and girls' and women's behaviour being "appropriately feminine" were replaced with more neutral statements about what women and girl versus boys and men do and think and say they want. In this way, conventionally gendered behaviour was taken out of the context of prescription and presented as simple description. This had the possibly unanticipated consequence, though, of taking these behaviours out of the context of the social world. The descriptive approach significantly deemphasised the role of norms, social structures, and modelling in developing gendered traits. Instead, disembodied as "naked facts" of sex differences, they began to look more and more like simple reflections of male and female behaviour. #Quote by Rebecca M. Jordan-Young
Only Boys quotes by Blythe Woolston
#17. I have seen teenage boys having sex, and they aren't so intense as babies who are figuring out that they have hands... #Quote by Blythe Woolston
Only Boys quotes by Pamela Anderson
#18. Miley [Cyrus] is so sweet. In this generation - and I know because I have two teenage boys - they don't really have to care about things. It's kind of a desensitized generation. I'm so impressed that she's really vegan and outspoken about animal welfare. #Quote by Pamela Anderson
Only Boys quotes by Soraya Chemaly
#19. It's the sting of knowing that exactly as the world starts expanding for most boys, it begins to shrink for [girls]. #Quote by Soraya Chemaly
Only Boys quotes by Myiesha
#20. She told Tiffany that it wasn't going to be immediately, but she would have her boys back. I left her my cell phone number and my house number, so she would be able to get in touch with one #Quote by Myiesha
Only Boys quotes by Jennifer Klinec
#21. Husbands take photographs of their wives and children in front of a fountain and call out to the boys who rush back and forth, carrying trays of tea and wrinkly, black dates. We sit at opposite ends of a large wooden bench covered in rugs and pillows; a spot more suited to a courting couple than the two of us who have nothing to say. #Quote by Jennifer Klinec
Only Boys quotes by Judy Davis
#22. Judy Garland's father was gay. That seems to be the consensus. They left Minnesota and went to California because he got caught with some boy backstage. #Quote by Judy Davis
Only Boys quotes by Anne-Marie Duff
#23. We thought we were going to have a girl, so we had 15 girls' names lined up and a little boy popped out. We had no idea, and we had hardly any boys' names. #Quote by Anne-Marie Duff
Only Boys quotes by Bram Stoker
#24. No man knows where the Castle of King Death is. All men and women, boys and girls, and even little wee children should so live that when they have to enter the Castle and see the grim King, they may not fear to behold his face. #Quote by Bram Stoker

#27. When I was a boy, I was a bit puzzled, and hardly knew weather it was myself or the world that was curious and worth looking into. Now I know that it is myself, and stick to that. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson

Only Boys quotes by Ali Krieger
#29. I always joke to my dad and thank him for giving me this little boy body, when I was 6 or 7, my gymnastics coach looked at my quads and told the other coach to come over and see my quads. They were big then and still are. But I've kind of embraced it through the years. #Quote by Ali Krieger
Only Boys quotes by Abraham Maslow

Only Boys quotes by Mike Love
#31. On a personal level, I would like my loved ones to know that I have always done the best that I could to demonstrate my love, and worked hard to provide them with a sense of security.

Peace and love! #Quote by Mike Love

Only Boys quotes by Michael Bennett
#37. We have a civil rights photo collection in our house, a big, beautiful coffee table book with images so vivid they cause jaws to drop. When my daughters and their friends pick it up to look at the young Black boys and girls in the middle of a dangerous struggle, I remind them that our eyes are trained to look at the Black faces and their determination as they walk to school. But I tell them also to look at the white faces in the background: the young, jeering faces shouting slurs and throwing things. "All of those folks are now around your granddad's age," I tell my daughters. They're still with us, and those people now walk around, every day, living with what they did, and either trying to rectify it in their brains, through penance, or voting for Donald Trump and passing that hatred down to their children's children. That is this country. Them. We cannot afford to pretend they don't live among us. #Quote by Michael Bennett
Only Boys quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#38. They call upon us to supply American boys to do the job that Asian boys should do. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Only Boys quotes by Louise Erdrich
#39. Still what? I made my voice grating and sarcastic. I was never like so many Indian boys, who'd look down quiet in their anger and say nothing. My mother had taught me different. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Only Boys quotes by Cate Blanchett
#40. Men are boys for such a long time and really don't start getting the great roles until they're in their mid-thirties. But then they've got a long time to do them, whereas for women, it's all about playing younger and younger and younger. #Quote by Cate Blanchett
Only Boys quotes by Erica Lorraine Scheidt
#41. I want Toy to know that I know. That no matter how many boys tell her they love her, how many boys tell her she's beautiful, how many boys crawl into her window at night and make love to her, it doesn't help. That I know it doesn't help. She is my sister and I love her. Like I want her to love me. #Quote by Erica Lorraine Scheidt
Only Boys quotes by Joshua Gaylord
#42. Girls, boys, it made no difference. you were skin and they were skin, and you buried yourself in the skin of others as they buried themselves in yours. Some of them cried and some of them howled - and whether the crying and howling was pain or pleasure, you couldn't tell, and maybe they couldn't either. Such are the ambiguities of primal youth. #Quote by Joshua Gaylord
Only Boys quotes by Farley Mowat
#43. Mutt enjoyed traveling by car, but he was an unquiet passenger. He suffered from the delusion, common to dogs and small boys, that when he was looking out the right-hand side, he was probably missing something far more interesting on the left-hand side. #Quote by Farley Mowat
Only Boys quotes by Bob Uecker
#44. Any teammate of mine that had a kid and a boy that was capable of playing baseball, I think I set a terrific example of 'Don't do this' and 'Don't do that.' And that's one of the things that I'm most proud of. #Quote by Bob Uecker
Only Boys quotes by Zack Love
#45. And trust me, none of those boys – including Julien – will give you a hard time about poppin' that sweet cherry of yours, in case you get the urge again." I laughed some more at her over-the-top style. #Quote by Zack Love
Only Boys quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#46. Liquor, guns, motorcycle helmets (legislation had gone back and forth on that) - mainly white masculine pursuits - are fairly unregulated. But for women and black men, regulation is greater. Within given parameters, federal law gives women the right to decide whether or not to abort a fetus. But the state of Louisiana has imposed restrictions on clinics offering the procedure, which, if upheld in the U.S. Supreme Court, would prevent all but one clinic, in New Orleans, from offering women access to it. Any adult in the state can also be jailed for transporting a teenager out of state for the purposes of an abortion if the teen has not informed her parents. Young black males are regulated too. Jefferson Davis Parish passed a bill banning the wearing of pants in public that revealed "skin beneath their waists or their underwear" and newspaper accounts featured images, taken from the back, of two black teenage boys exposing large portions of their undershorts. The parish imposed a $50 fine for a first offense and $100 for a second. #Quote by Arlie Russell Hochschild
Only Boys quotes by Jeff Sessions
#47. Hybart is a little community I grew up in, so it was just a wonderful time in those years. I was the youngest of about nine boys in the neighborhood and we played ball all the time, and I looked up to them and they let me play around with them, and we just had a good time. #Quote by Jeff Sessions
Only Boys quotes by Terry Bradshaw
#48. As a player, it says everything about you if you made the Hall of Fame. But, then again, boy ... there's something about winning a Super Bowl. #Quote by Terry Bradshaw
Only Boys quotes by Lian Tanner
#49. The people of jewel," said Olga Ciavolga,"treat their children like delicate flowers. They think they will not survive without constant protection. But there are parts of the world where young boys and girls spend weeks at a time with no company except a herd of goats. They chase away wolves. They take care of themselves, and they take care of the herd. And so, when hard times come - as they always do in the end - those children are resourceful and brave. If they have to walk from one end of the county to the other, carrying their baby brother and sisters, they will do it. If they have to hide during the day and travel at night to avoid soldiers, they will do it. They do not give up easily."
The tunnel took a sharp right-hand turn and, for a moment, the old woman s voice was lost. Something dropped onto Goldie's arm, and she opened her mouth to yelp - and thought of those children carrying their baby brothers and sisters through the night - and closed her mouth and kept going.
She rounded the corner in time to hear Olga Ciavolga murmur,"Of course, I am not saying that it is a good thing to give children such heavy responsibility's. They must be allowed to have a childhood. But they must also be allowed to find their courage and their wisdom, and learn when to stand and when to run away. After all, if they are not permitted to climb the trees, how will they ever see the great and wonderful world that lies before them? #Quote by Lian Tanner
Only Boys quotes by Vannetta Chapman
#50. It seemed to him that she looked completely at home in the classic truck, but then, he supposed that spoke more of her personality than of the vehicle. She was probably at home ... wherever she was planted. Ha! That thought had come straight from his wife. She was always admonishing the boys, "Bloom where you're planted." By the time they were in high school, they'd learned it did no good complaining to their mother about teachers, coaches, or chores. Her response was consistent throughout their road to adulthood. #Quote by Vannetta Chapman
Only Boys quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#51. I am angry that I starved my brain and that I sat shivering in my bed at night instead of dancing or reading poetry or eating ice cream or kissing a boy ... #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Only Boys quotes by Agatha Christie
#52. Katherine Grey was born with the power of managing old ladies, dogs, and small boys, and she did it without any apparent sense of strain. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Only Boys quotes by K.M. Soehnlein
#53. When people who aren't normal try to make their lives normal it doesn work. #Quote by K.M. Soehnlein
Only Boys quotes by Maud Hart Lovelace
#54. Then he kissed her. Betsy didn't believe in letting boys kiss you. She thought it was silly to be letting first this boy and then that one kiss you, when it didn't mean a thing. But it was wonderful when Joe Willard kissed her. And it did mean a thing. #Quote by Maud Hart Lovelace
Only Boys quotes by Jennifer Echols
#55. [ ... ] he had his hand on your -" He put his hand at waist level behind me, without touching me.
"He had his hand on my ass?"
"No," they said.
"Behind your back," Rashad said. "Like you're dating or something." He put his hand behind Skip's back. Skip hit him. #Quote by Jennifer Echols
Only Boys quotes by L.J. Shen
#56. Because my dad told me good girls like bad boys, and I'm bad. Really bad. #Quote by L.J. Shen
