How to use manhood in a sentence?

  1. Dr. Jose P. Rizal:

    Travel is a caprice in childhood, a passion in youth, a necessity in manhood, and an elegy in old age.

  2. Debasish Mridha, M.D.:

    Now domestication and sophistication of men by women are the norm and acceptable by society, but they are terrible for manhood.

  3. C. C. Colton:

    How small a portion of our life it is that we really enjoy! In youth we are looking forward to things that are to come; in old age we are looking backward to things that are gone past; in manhood, although we appear indeed to be more occupied in things that are present, yet even that is too often absorbed in vague determinations to be vastly happy on some future day when we have time.

  4. R. D. Hitchcock:

    Wealth is not of necessity a curse, nor poverty a blessing. Wholesome and easy abundance is better than either extreme; better for our manhood that we have enough for daily comfort; enough for culture, for hospitality, for charity. More than this may or may not be a blessing. Certainly it can be a blessing only by being accepted as a trust.

  5. Sir Richard Francis Burton:

    Do what thy manhood bids thee do, from none but self expect applause; He noblest lives and noblest dies who makes and keeps his self-made laws.
