In this post, we share twenty-five inspirational quotes for men. Over the last few hundred years, the definition of what it means to be a man has shifted considerably. Some would even go so far as to argue that that definition has changed completely in today’s world. For example, there was a time when being a man meant being aggressive, being a warrior, or a hunter. Those perceptions of manliness are no longer accurate and in fact vary from culture to culture. So, what does it mean to be a man today and how can we learn to become great men? In this post, we attempt to answer these questions. As mentioned earlier, we will also share twenty-five motivational quotes for men sectioned into five general sub-topics. We hope these quotes for men inspire our male readers to strive to become better and maybe even great men.

Just recently, we published a similar post titled twenty-five inspirational quotes for women. Unlike that post, which was written for our female readers, this, is written for our male audience. In the following sections, we will go on to share specially curated inspiring quotes for men by other great men. For your convenience, they have been sectioned into quotes on pursuing your goals, leadership, being a Dad, success, and life. While definitions of manhood may shift over time, core principles such as taking responsibility and perseverance will never change. In this regard, the best way to learn how to be a better man is from other great men.

Five Things we can Learn from other Great Men

While the definitions of manliness may have changed today, they are not so hard to rediscover. History has not left us devoid of examples of great men and how they became great. Men like Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, and Abraham Lincoln to mention a few have left examples we can follow. And as you can imagine, one excellent place to gleam such nuggets of wisdom is from their quotes.

But what can we learn from such great men? Here are five things we can learn from them

  1. The power of perseverance and consistency in achieving one’s goals.
  2. The importance of focus on one’s vision and goals.
  3. To grab hold of Opportunity when it comes and never let go.

These are just five lessons one can learn from other great men. As you can imagine, there are probably hundreds more to be learnt if we will take time to learn them.
