Who are the best men?

It's time we had a man-to-man talk. What does it take to be a real man these days? Is it strength? Power? Success? Well, if you ask us, we think manhood is about having the bravado to reach for your dreams and influence other people in the process. Take a cue from these men who know this better than any boy in their age!

      "While Bob Dylan is great I don't know that he would be my first choice for a favorite man. I say this because I would probably pick someone that was a bit closer to me personally but I do like his songs and the paintings he has done."

      "Most people think of Mark Zuckerberg as the man who created Facebook out of his dorm room. There is so much more to him than that! Did you know that in 2015 he and his wife created The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, a charitable fund to which the couple promises to donate 99 percent of their wealth over their lifetimes. Last year alone he gave $3 billion through the foundation in a mission to cure all childhood diseases over the next decade. Mr Zuckerberg is certainly a man I look up to!"

      ""Steven Spielberg is a name that anybody who's a movie critic would give two thumbs up. I think he's one of my all time favorite movie authors. I highly doubt there's gonna be a debate about that. Not to mention now that I think about it I can't think of any of his movies I didn't care for. Truly a one of a kind, kind of fella.""

      "Steven Spielberg is probably my favorite male filmmaker. He has had positions in some of my favorite movies of all time such as Men In Black and Jurassic Park. Anytime I see a Steven Spielberg movie preview I make sure to get myself to the theater to go see it."

      "[The Mexican Standoff] All his movies (including True Romance (1993), which he only wrote and did not direct) feature a scene in which three or more characters are pointing guns at each other at the same time. Often uses an unconventional storytelling device in his films, such as retrospect (Reservoir Dogs (1992)), non-linear (Pulp Fiction (1994)), or "chapter" format (_Kill Bill: Vol.1 (2003).) His films will often include one long, unbroken take where a character is followed around somewhere."

      "This is a good solution to the topic. The Dalai Lama is a wonderful man who was incredibly compassionate. He was a very wise man and very peaceful. However this is a very subjective topic making the solution one that can't be a perfect match to everyone. "
