Interesting quotes TRAVELFAN

I think like KELLY122581, men and women are very similar in our ways of thinking and behaving, conventions in society are the ones that manipulate and dictate how men or women should behave, and changes with the times, thanks God we live in the time that men and women have the same right to attend school, work and become whatever they want to be (a nurse if a man wants to or an engineer if a woman wants to). We also should educate men and women to express their feelings and to do the right thing: "One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself," in which forgive and forget are included, the famous Golden Rule.

In this regard see the link below, all the religions and philosophies express the same sentiment or Golden Rule:

I like them all except #4 - this one is bothering me on a couple different levels. First, I think paints both men and women as static, petty beings. Second, I don't like dwelling on any combative differences, and would rather search for compassion, understanding, and similarity. Third, I think this is wildly false, at least for me and many of the men and women I know!

To say that men are incapable of forgiveness is a terrible thing to say about them, and to say that us women never forget makes it seem like we hold grudges after faking forgiveness.....

What are other people's thoughts on this?

But, I do love the other quotes :-)
