“Nije čovjek ono što misli, već ono što čini.”
Meša Selimović, Death and the Dervish

Ben Monopoli
“It's not about who you sleep with, or whether you know about sports or tools or have a pearl-wearing wife or whether commercials make you cry. [...] it's about whether you step up. When something hard comes along. A man steps up. He doesn't dodge it or run away from it or try to push it onto someone else. He steps up. Even if it isn't his responsibility. And that's why there are so many guys and so few men. Because stepping up is hard.”
Ben Monopoli, The Painting of Porcupine City

They never felt that responsibility. They were untested, unproven; they were boys in grown-up clothes.”
Blake Nelson, Paranoid Park
