    For me, a 'great' manor woman are those who enjoy their life.

    Personally, I think it's anyone who can laugh at themselves. There is too much aggression and anger in this world already; sometimes, we just need to laugh. The ability to laugh at yourself; that's what makes a great man or woman.

    For me, I believe greatness is found in those who can exist and understand their lives. People who are able to understand and accept their lives as they are, but are willing to change when they feel the need to grow.

    Man must be a man or words. What he say must fulfilled and of-course he must have his dignity and sincerity to his family and jobs as well. If he speaks the truth and is loyal with everyone then he must be known as a great  person.

    For woman i must say must have an ok attitude but must believe her own soul and never walk towards the wrong way or deceive anyone even to her life partner as well. That's what i think a lady must have in her said to be a great woman.

    That he or she looks to the needs of others and is thus a selfless individual.

    It has been far too many years, since , I last saw his face.............

    Still, when I  close my eyes, I see how tall he was
    How much space his very body took up
    I can smell his shaving soap his afterhave lotion

    It is the smell of a man

    I can hear the scrape of the razor against his skin
    I   recall the very day, that He asked me, to do this " raking" against his face

    ........oh, how he must have TRUSTED this little slip of a  girl, who was me........

    the wells lamont gloves that protected his hands
    the bearing    grease
    the tenpenny nails
    a bit of gasoline...

    the  honey comb that he stole from the bees

    How he sat, quietly, saying no thing,  thinking much, at my Grandmother's  " sick bed"

    How tall, he was, how big, how strong..............he stood above men of his  own era, how did a  little a girl  ever survive in his world, I was in his shadow, from the get-go

    Far too many years have passed since I last saw my Grandfather's face, since the last time that I saw him slice bacon, offer home remedies to livestock.......

    With all of his goodness, know  how, calmess, ability to fix, repair or restore, encourage, lead others on...............

    He is the yardstick, that I measure not only myself, but all others, that I meet.

    To have such an influence on life, 25 years, after your last day on earth, is the measure of a man........

    For a man to love me, as this man loved my Grandmother......................a fantasy.

    Perhaps, the answer is just that simple.........how does ( did ) this man love (loved) his  woman?

    For all of the authority, that my Grandfather carried, I can not recall a single time, that he disrespected, or dismissed my Grandmother.....not a single time, in my life.

    I have said all of this......just to say......

    COVER your partner........protect your mate.

    A great man and woman is a man and woman that has been able to overcome obstacles, hindrances,tribulations, war, famine, drought, opposition, competition in every angle and still come up on top of whatever was proving insurmountable.
    Great man and woman are those who are strong in character, discipline and objectives in their vies and definitions and actions. They are pace setters, record breakers , trail blazers and champions on their on right.

    To me a great woman and man are ones who give of themselves and do not expect anything in return. They have a kindness and love that is always thinking about others.
