“There was a fascinating duality about Matthew that Daisy had never encountered in another man. At some moments he was the aggressive, sharp-eyed, buttoned-up businessman who rattled off facts and figures with ease.
At other times he was a gentle, understanding lover who shed his cynicism like an old coat and engaged her in playful debates about which ancient culture had the best mythology, or what Thomas Jefferson's favorite vegetable had been. (Although Daisy was convinced it was green peas, Matthew had made an excellent case for tomatoes.)
They had long conversations about subjects like history and progressive politics. For a man from a conservative Brahmin background, he had a surprising awareness of reform issues. Usually in their relentless climb up the social ladder, enterprising men forgot about those who had been left on the bottom rungs. Daisy thought it spoke well of Matthew's character that he had a genuine concern for those less fortunate than himself.”
Lisa Kleypas, Scandal in Spring

“I will find whatever I seek. I will seek all that is good, all that is compassionate, all that is kind, all that comes from a place of love.”

“Man was meant to challenge his boundaries.
He was meant to fly the heavens.
He was meant to swim the oceans.

He was meant to be understanding and not condescending.
He was meant to be compassionate and not spiteful.
He was meant to be so much more.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“You don't need to be a bully to be a man.
