Author: A.J. Liebling
2. "Saetan laughed, genuinely amused. "No, I wouldn't think he would. He's in his prime, virile, living, and well trained in seduction. That twelve-year-old body must be driving him out of his skin."
Author: Anne Bishop
3. "And you're no going to see me inherit the title--you'll marry on your deathbed and beget an heir just to spite me," he said in a voice that wasn't far from a whine."What a wonderful opinion you have of my virility," Rohan replied."
Author: Anne Stuart
4. "Mechanized warfare still left room for human qualities to play an important part in the issue. ‘Automatic warfare' cancels them out, except in a passive form. Archidamus is at last being justified. Courage, skill and patriotism become shrinking assets. The most virile nation might not be able to withstand another, inferior to it in all natural qualities, if the latter had some decisively superior technical appliance. (...)The advent of ‘automatic warfare' should make plain the absurdity of warfare as a means of deciding nations' claims to superiority. It blows away romantic vapourings about the heroic virtues of war, utilized by aggressive and ambitious leaders to generate a military spirit among their people. They can no longer claim that war is any test of a people's fitness, or even of its national strength. Science has undermined the foundations of nationalism, at the very time when the spirit of nationalism is most rampant."
Author: B.H. Liddell Hart
5. "Il y a toute cette autre pensée de la guerre, non pas virile, exaltante, source de grandeur ou d'accomplissement de soi, mais tout simplement nécessaire car l'alternative à cette guerre ce ne serait pas la paix mais l'enfer...(ch. 5La nostalgie de la guerre)"
Author: Bernard Henri Lévy
6. "It is for this reason that rationality is of supreme importance to the well-being of the human species...even more, in those less fortunate times in which it is despised and rejected as the vain dream of men who lack the virility to kill where they cannot agree."
Author: Bertrand Russell
7. "-flashed Langdon the thumbs-upsign. Langdon smiled weakly and returned the gesture, wondering if she knew it was the ancient phallicsymbol for masculine virility."
Author: Dan Brown
8. "Although he was a young and virile man at 37, he was not inexhaustible. In addition to food and drink, he had better lay in a couple thousand tablets of viagra. The drug would probably remain potent if he vacuum packed the pills in groups of 10 and kept them in a freezer. That would work unless civilization completely collapsed and power companies were unable to function. Fortunately, Jim had a propane-powered backup generator with half a dozen tanks of fuel already on hand. If Henry added to the propane supply, and he used the generator only for essential maintenance like keeping the viagra freezer operating in warm weather, he would be happy here on the farm for a looong, looong time. Unless, even now, dead Jim was out there in the generator shed sabotaging the machinery."
Author: Dean Koontz
9. "I watched Buford set things up and I decided that tending bar might be a pretty good way to spend one's life. Spanking down big foaming steins of beer to be encircled by the huge skeet-shooting hands of virile novelists. Rattling the cocktail shaker and doing a little samba step for the amusement of the ladies. To be an expert at something."
Author: Don DeLillo
10. "Rimasero in silenzio mentre i loro occhi si cibavano gli uni degli altri, senza parole perché quelle tra loro erano inutili. L'alchimia che c'era stata sin dal loro primo incontro era qualcosa di indescrivibile che nessuno dei due aveva mai provato prima. Lui era lo Yang, il lato virile e potente dell'essenza che creavano insieme, e lei era lo Yin, la femminilità, la delicatezza che colmava le mancanze dell'altro. Solo insieme erano completi, lontani erano come un giocattolo rotto."
Author: Eilan Moon
11. "I'm virile, vigorous, and potent!"
Author: G. Gordon Liddy
12. "How much larger your life would be if your self could become smaller in it; if you could really look at other men with common curiosity and pleasure; if you could see them walking as they are in their sunny sefishness and their virile indifference! You would begin to be interested in them, because they are not interested in you. You would break out of this tiny and tawdry theatre in which your own little plot is always played, and you would find yourself under a freer sky, in a street full of splendid strangers."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
13. "If a man is highly sexed he's virile. If a woman is, she's a nymphomaniac. With them it's power but with us it's a disease! Even the act of sex is called penetration! Why don't they call it enclosure?"
Author: Gemma Hatchback
14. "The present dominant values (xenophilia, cosmopolitanism, narcissistic individualism, humanitarianism, bourgeois economism, hedonism, homophilia, permissivenes, etc.) are actually anti-values - values of devirilising weakness, since they deplete a civilization's vital energies and weaken its defensive or affirmative capacities."
Author: Guillaume Faye
15. "Men are most virile and most attractive between the ages of 35 and 55. Under 35 a man has too much to learn, and I don't have time to teach him."
Author: Hedy Lamarr
16. "Men have committed the greatest crime against women. Insidiously, violently, they have led them to hate women, to be their own enemies, to mobilize their immense strength against themselves, to be the executants of their virile needs."
Author: Hélène Cixous
17. "Permanecí largo rato mirándole, y sentí entonces, lejos aún en mi subconsciente, algo muy singular. Vi que el rostro de Demian no solamente era el de un muchacho, sino el de un hombre, pero me pareció ver todavía algo más: era como si en él hubiera también algo de un rostro de una mujer, y además, por un instante, aquel rostro no me pareció ya viril o infantil, maduro o joven, sino, en cierto modo, milenario; en cierto modo, fuera del tiempo, marcado por edades distintas a la que nosotros vivimos. Los animales pueden presentar ese aspecto, o los árboles, o las estrellas. Yo no lo sabía. No sentí exactamente por entonces esto que ahora describo; pero sí algo semejante. Tampoco supe en forma clara si la figura de Demian me atraía o me repelía. Sólo vi que era distinto de nosotros, que era como un animal, o como un espíritu, o como una pintura; pero distinto, extrañamente distinto de todos nosotros."
Author: Hermann Hesse
18. "Si usted es querido alguna vez como yo lo fui, y ultraja como yo lo hice, comprenderá toda la pureza viril que hay en mi recuerdo."
Author: Horacio Quiroga
19. "Al rallentatore, Vishous chinò la testa bruna e Butch sentì come una carezza vellutata quando il pizzetto gli sfiorò la gola. Con precisione millimetrica, V premette le zanne contro la vena che saliva dal cuore dell'amico, poi lentamente, inesorabilmente, lo trafisse. I loro petti si toccarono.Butch chiuse gli occhi, assaporando quella sensazione, il calore dovuto alla vicinanza fisica, la morbidezza dei capelli di V sulla mascella, la potenza del braccio virile che gli scivolava intorno alla vita. Quasi animate da volontà propria, le sue mani si staccarono dai pioli posandosi sui fianchi di V, stringendo con forza quella carne soda, unendo i loro corpi dalla testa ai piedi. Un fremito percorse uno dei due. O forse... merda, forse erano rabbrividiti entrambi.E poi basta. Chiuso. Finito. Da non ripetersi mai più."
Author: J.R. Ward
20. "Civilization comes at a cost of manliness. It comes at a cost of wildness, of risk, of strife. It comes at a cost of strength, of courage, of mastery. It comes at a cost of honor. Increased civilization exacts a toll of virility, forcing manliness into further redoubts of vicariousness and abstraction"
Author: Jack Donovan
21. "On the American Oligarchy"How about the United States?" a man yelled from the audience."And what about it?" Martin retorted. "The thirteen colonies threw off their rulers and formed the Republic so-called. The slaves were their own masters. There were no more masters of the sword. But you couldn't get along without masters of some sort, and there arose a new set of masters–not the great, virile noble men, but the shrewd and spidery traders and money-lenders. And they enslaved you all over again–but not frankly, as the true, noble men would do with weight of their own right arms, but secretly, by spidery machinations and by wheedling and cajoling and lies. They have purchased your slave judges, they have debauched your slave legislatures, and they have forced to worse horrors than chattel slavery your slave boys and girls. Two million of your children are toiling today in this trade-oligarchy of the United States. Ten millions of your slaves are not properly sheltered nor properly fed."
Author: Jack London
22. "Apprends donc un peu l'égoïsme, se dit-il, c'est très utile et on n'a jamais l'air d'un imbécile. Ces deux-là t'ont envoyé paître et ils ont raison. Ils s'occupent d'une affaire qui les regarde et ils la mènent comme ils veulent. Ils n'ont pas du tout envie que tu viennes compliquer les choses. Que le malade aille mieux ou plus mal, dans un quart d'heure ils ne pleureront plus et ils ne penseront qu'à se débrouiller. Crois-tu que la générosité soit toujours bonne ? Neuf fois sur dix elle est impolie. Et elle n'est jamais virile."
Author: Jean Giono
23. "Hay veces en que le envidio su juventud, pero trato de no pensar mucho en eso. Un anciano no debe tener celos de aquellos que vienen a ocupar su puesto, y recordar el tiempo en que era joven, sano y viril es un acto de masoquismo que no sirve de nada."
Author: John Boyne
24. "On February 14, I received a telegram from Buenos Aires urging me to return home immediately; my father was "not at all well." God forgive me, but the prestige of being the recipient of an urgent telegram, the desire to communicate to all of Fray Bentos the contradiction between the negative form of the news and the absoluteness of the adverbial phrase, the temptation to dramatize my grief by feigning a virile stoicism-all this perhaps distracted me from any possibility of real pain."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
25. "A woman's true tenderness, like the true virility of man, is expressed in action of a conquering kind."
Author: Joseph Conrad
26. "And he has to be handsome, unbelievably handsome, impossibly handsome with a strong, square jaw and powerful cheekbones and tanned skin and beautiful eyes with lush, thick lashes. He has to be clever and very wealthy but hard-working. He has to be virile, fierce, ruthless and rugged."
Author: Kristen Ashley
27. "Alors, he is a virile man, she is a beautiful woman . . . why are they not making salad together?"
Author: Lisa Kleypas
28. "Spectacles, on that strong-featured face…and his hair mussed as if he had been tugging absently on the front locks. All that combined with a plenitude of muscles and masculine virility was astonishingly…erotic. "When did you start wearing those?" Daisy managed to ask. "About a year ago." He smiled ruefully and removed the spectacles with one hand. "I need them to read. Too many late nights poring over contracts and reports." "They…they are very becoming." "Are they?" Continuing to smile, Swift shook his head, as if it had not occurred to him to wonder about his appearance."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
29. "Implicit in true freedom of spirit lies a proud and virile will. Such glorious power of free will to choose, envisages beneficent social responsibility as manifest and welcome."
Author: Louis Sullivan
30. "Donc, il est juste et vrai que la séparation du spirituel et du sensuel chez un homme est signe de sa virilité, et la séparation du spirituel et du sensuel chez une femme est signe de sa prostitution. Et il suffirait que toutes les femmes, ensemble, se virilisent, pour que le monde, le monde entier, se transforme en bordel.( from "Roman avec cocaïne" )"
Author: M. Ageyev
31. "As suferi mai mult daca as fi respins. Iar eu vreau sa inving intotdeauna. De aceea ma arat retras, dispretuitor. Nadajduiesc intr-un timp cand munca ma va inalta destul ca sa atrag privirile. Suferintele mele-pana atunci-nu le va cunoaste nimeni."
Author: Mircea Eliade
32. "In a sexual double standard as to who receives consumer protection, it seems that if what you do is done to women in the name of beauty, you may do what you like. It is illegal to claim that something grows hair, or makes you taller, or restores virility, if it does not. It is difficult to imagine that the baldness remedy Minoxidil would be on the market if it had killed nine French and at least eleven American men. In contrast, the long-term effects of Retin-A are still unknown--Dr. Stuart Yusps of the National Cancer Institute refers to its prescription as "a human experiment"--and the Food and Drug Administration has not approved it yet dermatologists are prescribing it to women at a revenue of over $150 million a year."
Author: Naomi Wolf
33. "El que hoy es un impetuoso joven se quedaría horrorizado si contemplarael retrato de lo que será en su vejez. Llevaos con vosotros todos losimpulsos humanos cuando salgáis de los fáciles años de la juventudpara entrar en la severa virilidad que todo lo endurece, lleváoslo, no losabandonéis en el camino. ¡Después no os será posible recuperarlos! ¡Lavejez que os aguarda, horrible y temible, jamás devuelve nada! Más compasiva que la vejez es la sepultura, en ella se escribirá: «Aquí han enterrado a un hombre», pero nada se puede leer en los insensibles y fríos rasgos de la inhumana vejez."
Author: Nikolai Gogol
34. "It's all along of the unicorn's horn – it's all along of the glorious hand. Huzzay, three times huzzay for the doctor!'Lord, how they cheered their surgeon! It was he who had brought the narwhal's tusk aboard: and the severed hand, the Hand of Glory, was his property: both symbolized (and practically guaranteed) immense good fortune, virility, safety from poison or any disease you chose to name: and both had proved their worth."
Author: Patrick O'Brian
35. "No one is more arrogant toward women, more aggressive or scornful, than the man who is anxious about his virility."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
36. "Nul n'est plus arrogant à l'égard des femmes, agressif ou dédaigneux, qu'un homme inquiet de sa virilité."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir

Author: Susan Polis Schutz
38. "What is the most beautiful in virile men is something feminine; what is most beautiful in feminine women is something masculine."
Author: Susan Sontag
39. "Ah, bella damigella, dignità, virtù e valore non sono riposti solo nell'abbigliamento!" esclamò Balin. "La virilità e l'onore sono celati nella persona, e vi sono molti insigni cavalieri ignoti a tutti, a riprova che il pregio e l'ardimento non hanno alcun rapporto con le vesti che indossano."
Author: Thomas Malory
40. "For such is the fate of parody: it must never fear exaggerating. If it strikes home, it will only prefigure something that others will then do without a smile--and without a blush--in steadfast virile seriousness."
Author: Umberto Eco
41. "A friend. What is a friend, in a world where any friend may be a lover at a new phase of the moon? Not I, locked in my virility: no friend to Therem Harth, or any other of his race. Neither man nor woman, neither and both, cyclic, lunar, metamorphosing under the hand's touch, changelings in the human cradle, they were no flesh of mine, no friends; no love between us."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
42. "A man wants his virility regarded. A woman wants her femininity appreciated, however indirect and subtle the indications of regard and appreciation. [Here] one is respected and judged only as a human being. It is an appalling experience."
Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
43. "It was the stupidity of virility that impressed me--& how, having made those convenient railway lines of convention, the lusts speed along them unquestioning."
Author: Virginia Woolf
44. "Quels soucis de gloire, quel intérêt, quelles satisfactions, et elles sont nombreuses, la lutte lui apporte?Sans la guerre il n y aurait pas de débouchés pour les nombreuses qualités viriles développées par la lutte; se battre ainsi demeure une caractéristique du sexe masculin [...] c est, disent certains la contrepartie de l instinct maternel, qu il ne peuvent, eux, partager"
Author: Virginia Woolf
45. "Lolita, luz da minha vida, fogo da minha virilidade. Meu pecado, minha alma. Lo-li-ta: A ponta da língua faz uma viagem de três passos pelo céu-da-boca abaixo e, no terceiro, bate nos dentes. Lo. Li. Ta. Pela manhã, um metro e trinta e dois a espichar dos soquetes; era Lo, apenas Lo. De calças práticas, era Lola. Na escola, era Dolly. Era Dolores na linha pontilhada onde assinava o nome.Mas nos meus braços era sempre Lolita."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
46. "Unfortunately his urge to write had suddenly petered out and he did not know what to do with himself. He was not sleepy having slept after dinner. The brandy only added to the nuisance. He was a big heavy man of the hairy sort with a somewhat Beethovenlike face. He had lost his wife in November. He had taught philosophy. He was exceedingly virile. His name was Adam Krug."
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
47. "Ma la virilità si è tutta smammolata in coccolette; il coraggio svaporato in complimenti, e gli uomini sono diventati tutti lingua, come dei pappagalli ammaestrati. Oggi è più valente di un Ercole chi sa meglio mentire e spergiurare. Non posso diventare uomo di mia volontà, e allora morirò donna per disperazione."
Author: William Shakespeare
