Generations quotes by Trista Sutter
#1. I'd tell the planet to actively and consciously practice gratitude. To never give up hope. To believe in themselves and be true to who they are. To be kind. To share. To protect our planet for future generations. #Quote by Trista Sutter
Generations quotes by Mark Helprin
#2. Who said that justice is what you imagine? Can you be sure that you know it when you see it, that you will live long enough to recognize the decisive thunder of its occurrence, that it can be manifest within a generation, within ten generations, within the entire span of human existence? What you are talking about is common sense, not justice. Justice is higher and not as easy to understand - until it presents itself in unmistakable splendor. The design of which I speak is far above our understanding. But we can sometimes feel its presence. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Generations quotes by Lynette Fromme
#3. How much will you give for the lives of your childrens children, which is yourself? How much are people willing to give up for air, earth, water, animals, and the coming generations? I think the answer to that is pretty clear. #Quote by Lynette Fromme
Generations quotes by Tamae Watanabe
#4. If children have an interest in nature, they will understand. I want them to become people who appreciate the consequences the next generation will suffer if we destroy our natural surroundings. So without a doubt, they need to learn that nature is vital to us by experiencing it. I want them to like nature and to climb mountains and so on. #Quote by Tamae Watanabe
Generations quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#5. My soul always reverts to the Old Testament and to Shakespeare. There at least one feels that it's human beings talking. There people hate, people love, people murder their enemy and curse his descendants through all generations, there people sin. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Generations quotes by Sheryl Crow
#6. The younger generation of performers really enjoy their success. Its like they know their moment is here right now and probably won't be here in a few years. #Quote by Sheryl Crow
Generations quotes by Christine Kenneally
#7. If every chunk of DNA were halved with every generation, the result would be a rather neat picture of proportionately shrinking segments that matched an expanding fan of cousins. But if the cut and shuffle of DNA down through the generations is not a smooth, even process and relatively large chunks of DNA may be passed on through generations more or less unchanged, it has some interesting implications for what DNA can tell us about the past. #Quote by Christine Kenneally
Generations quotes by Rachel Weisz
#8. Every new mother wonders, 'what will I pass on to my child'? Hunger is one inheritance no mother wants to give her child, yet millions of poor women have for generations. Help the World Food Programme break this cycle. No child should inherit hunger. #Quote by Rachel Weisz
Generations quotes by Sandra Rogers
#9. The myth that morality and fidelity are old-fashioned and trite can imprison more than just one individual as generations are affected by the choices perpetuated by this lie. The myth that withholding judgment or having charity means that all values are relative and should be given equal importance or loyalty creates a heavy chain that eventually traps a person in doubt and disaffection, leaving him or her to be constantly "driven with the wind and tossed" (see James 1:6). However, confidence that Christ honors those who honor him (see 1 Samuel 2:30) provides an anchor to our souls (see Ether 12:4) whereby we are capable of giving affirmative answers to those who question the "reason of the hope that is in [us]" (1 Peter 3:15). I remember one of my saddest moments as a faculty member at BYU. One of my students came to me in emotional tatters. She had come to BYU looking for a supportive community that shared her values, something she had not enjoyed being the only Mormon in her high school. Instead her peers at BYU teased, sneered at, and demeaned her because she was not willing to watch an R-rated movie. How proud I was of her! Despite the hurt of rejection "by her own," her faith carried her through the social prison created by her peers. To "stand in holy places, and be not moved" (D&C 87:8) in today's world requires faith, courage, poise, and patience. #Quote by Sandra Rogers
Generations quotes by Erica Jong
#10. Why are women so ungenerous to other women? Is it because we have been tokens for so long? Or is there a deeper animosity we owe it to ourselves to explore?
A publisher...couldn't understand why women were so loath to help each other.... The notion flitted through my mind that somehow, by helping..., I might be hurting my own chances for something or other -- what I did not know. If there was room for only one woman poet, another space would be filled....
If I still feel I am in competition with other women, how do less well-known women feel? Terrible, I have to assume.

I have had to train myself to pay as much attention to women at parties as to men.... I have had to force myself not to be dismissive of other women's creativity. We have been semi-slaves for so long (as Doris Lessing says) that we must cultivate freedom within ourselves. It doesn't come naturally. Not yet.
In her writing about the drama of childhood developments, Alice Miller has created, among other things, a theory of freedom. in order to embrace freedom, a child must be sufficiently nurtured, sufficiently loved. Security and abundance are the grounds for freedom. She shows how abusive child-rearing is communicated from one generation to the next and how fascism profits from generations of abused children. Women have been abused for centuries, so it should surprise no one that we are so good at abusing each other. Until we learn how to stop doing that, we cannot make our revoluti #Quote by Erica Jong
Generations quotes by Albert Einstein
#11. It is clear that all the valuable things, material, spiritual, and moral, which we receive from society can be traced back through countless generations to certain creative individuals. The use of fire, the cultivation of edible plants, the steam engine - each was discovered by one man. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Generations quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#12. When I was a kid, the people of my generation didn't want to be writers, they wanted to be rock stars. Rock and roll was not just entertainment, it was the center of people's lives. When I was young, it was exciting and interesting. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Generations quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#13. Idealism, unrealistic idealism, is always contrasted with the reality of the people, of the man in the street. The details of daily life are always more convincing than the political fantasies of the earlier generations. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Generations quotes by Charles Kennedy
#14. This country has a proud history of opening its doors to generations of people fleeing personal persecution, civil unrest and war. #Quote by Charles Kennedy
Generations quotes by Joan Didion
#15. We were that generation called silent, but we were silent neither, as some thought, because we shared the period's official optimism nor, as others thought, because we feared its official repression. We were silent because the exhilaration of social action seemed to many of us just one more way of escaping the personal, of masking for a while that dread of the meaningless which was man's fate. #Quote by Joan Didion
Generations quotes by Twyla Tharp
#16. Collaboration is how most of our ancestors used to work and live, before machines came along and fragmented society. Time to plant the fields? Everybody pitched in and got it done. Harvesttime? The community raced to get the crops in before the rains came. Where were those crops stored? In barns built by teams of neighbors. In the cities, the same spirit applied. Anonymous craftsmen spent their lives building cathedrals that wouldn't be completed for generations. #Quote by Twyla Tharp
Generations quotes by Anthony Carmona
#17. As much as with increased exploration new gas reserves can be found, what must be obvious to all is that our oil and gas reserves are not renewable and they are diminishing, and to protect the generations to come, we must engage in nothing short of a radical shift in the diversification of the economy. #Quote by Anthony Carmona
Generations quotes by Yann Martel
#18. If you took the city of Tokyo and turned it upside down and shook it you would be amazed at the animals that fall out: badgers, wolves, boa constrictors, crocodiles, ostriches, baboons, capybaras, wild boars, leopards, manatees, ruminants, in untold numbers. There is no doubt in my mind that that feral giraffes and feral hippos have been living in Tokyo for generations without seeing a soul. #Quote by Yann Martel
Generations quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#19. The function of our Government is to insure to all its citizens, now and hereafter, their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If we of this generation destroy the resources from which our children would otherwise derive their livelihood, we reduce the capacity of our land to support a population, and so either degrade the standard of living or deprive the coming generations of their fight to life on this continent. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Generations quotes by John Irving
#20. From Hester's bedroom - even though the door was closed - we could hear her breathing; Hester's breathing, when she'd been drinking, was something between a snore and a moan. "Why does she drink so much?" I asked Owen. "HESTER'S AHEAD OF HER TIME," he said. "What's that mean?" I asked him. "Do we have a generation of drunks to look forward to?" "WE HAVE A GENERATION OF PEOPLE WHO ARE ANGRY TO LOOK FORWARD TO," Owen said. "AND MAYBE TWO GENERATIONS OF PEOPLE WHO DON'T GIVE A SHIT," he added. "How do you know?" I asked him. "I DON'T KNOW HOW I KNOW," said Owen Meany. "I JUST KNOW THAT I KNOW," he said. #Quote by John Irving
Generations quotes by Felix Baumgartner
#21. I want to inspire the next generation. I want to be in mission control with someone younger than me wanting to break my record. #Quote by Felix Baumgartner
Generations quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#22. You see the grandmother down there with her son and grandson? They've probably been coming here for years together. Or maybe it's their first trip. Either way, it's three generations sitting down together, laying aside their differences for one night to be a family. This is humanity, Steele. This is what we're fighting for. Family. People. Pride. It's our differences that make up our strength. BAD isn't about patriotism. It's about saving individuals. Not just those in America, but all the ones who are out there going about their lives with little to no care about politics. Men, women, and children who only want to live peacefully while others are looking for ways to use them as pawns in a deadly game they don't even want to play. (Joe) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Generations quotes by Jonathan Ames
#23. I am part of a vast generation of people who perpetually live as if they just graduated from college. #Quote by Jonathan Ames
Generations quotes by Lee Child
#24. The third guy was different. He was what you got when you ate squirrels for four generations. Smarter than a rat and tougher than a goat, and jumpier than either one. #Quote by Lee Child
Generations quotes by Malcolm Fraser
#25. We are seeing healing among the stolen generations, and initiatives which are enabling Indigenous people to make their distinctive contribution to our national life. #Quote by Malcolm Fraser
Generations quotes by Donald Sutherland
#26. He doesn't translate well into our generation. #Quote by Donald Sutherland
Generations quotes by Grant Morrison
#27. The thing that's been exciting about 'Superman' is to see how the character has developed through generations. #Quote by Grant Morrison
Generations quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#28. Dear future generations: Please accept our apologies. We were rolling drunk on petroleum. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Generations quotes by Fede Alvarez
#29. I thought that Hollywood was just for geniuses and that directors come from three generations of directors. I was worried that I was not up to the challenge of making a movie. Then realized that all a director has to do is know what he wants to do. #Quote by Fede Alvarez
Generations quotes by Robert Heilbroner
#30. The secret to economic growth lay in the fact that that each generation attacked Nature not only with its own energies and resources, but with the heritage of equipment accumulated by its forebears. #Quote by Robert Heilbroner
Generations quotes by Henri Cartier-Bresson
#31. The intensive use of photographs by mass media lays ever fresh responsibilities upon the photographer. We have to acknowledge the existence of a chasm between the economic needs of our consumer society and the requirements of those who bear witness to this epoch. This affects us all, particularly the younger generations of photographers. We must take greater care than ever not to allow ourselves to be separated from the real world and from humanity. #Quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson
Generations quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#32. This progressive effacement of human relationships is not without certain problems for the novel. How, in point of fact, would one handle the narration of those unbridled passions, stretching over many years, and at times making their effect felt on several generations? We're a long way from Wuthering Heights, to say the least. The novel form is not conceived for depicting indifference or nothingness; a flatter, more terse, and dreary discourse would need to be invented. #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Generations quotes by Karl Popper
#33. Do not allow your dreams of a beautiful world to lure you away from the claims of men who suffer here and now. Our fellow men have a claim to our help; no generation must be sacrificed for the sake of future generations. #Quote by Karl Popper
Generations quotes by Ronald Reagan
#34. I can't believe that this world can go on beyond our generation and on down to succeeding generations with this kind of weapon on both sides poised at each other without someday some fool or some maniac or some accident triggering the kind of war that is the end of the line for all of us. And I just think of what a sigh of relief would go up from everyone on this earth if someday-and this is what I have-my hope, way in the back of my head-is that if we start down the road to reduction, maybe one day in doing that, somebody will say, 'Why not all the way? Let's get rid of all these things'. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Generations quotes by Gina Barreca
#35. While I do not believe the earth loaned to us by our ancestors should be plagued by chemical horrors and thereby corrupted for future generations, neither do I believe I should have to face anything that has more eyes than I have during dinner. It was my rule when I was dating and, heck, it's still my rule now. #Quote by Gina Barreca
Generations quotes by N. R. Narayana Murthy
#36. In the fullness of time, when it is our turn to give, we must in turn plant gardens that we may never eat the fruit of, which will benefit the generations to come. #Quote by N. R. Narayana Murthy
Generations quotes by Marguerite Yourcenar
#37. Ancient and oriental civilizations were more sensitive than we are to the cycles of things; to the succession of generations, both divine and human; and to change within stasis. Western man is virtually alone in wanting to make his God into a fortress and personal immortality into a bulwark against time. #Quote by Marguerite Yourcenar
Generations quotes by John Ridley
#38. Gay marriage will be universally accepted in time. But if I may be so bold as to say to gays and lesbians, don't wait for that time to arrive. Just as my father and his generation did not 'wait' for their civil rights, nor should you. The toothpaste ain't going back in the tube. The tide has turned. #Quote by John Ridley
Generations quotes by Mike Huckabee
#39. The most important thing about global warming is this. Whether humans are responsible for the bulk of climate change is going to be left to the scientists, but it's all of our responsibility to leave this planet in better shape for the future generations than we found it. #Quote by Mike Huckabee
Generations quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#40. There has been something crude and heartless and unfeeling in our haste to suceed and be great. Our thought has been 'Let every man look out for himself, let every generation look out for itself,' while we reared giant machinery which made it impossible that any but those who stood at the levers of control should have a chance to look out for themselves. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Generations quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#41. It was she who did away with my generation's virginity. She taught us much more than we should have learned, but she taught us above all that there's no place in life sadder than an empty bed. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Generations quotes by Patrick McHenry
#42. Marginal tax rates are the lowest they've been in generations, and all we can talk about is tax cuts. #Quote by Patrick McHenry
Generations quotes by Gore Vidal
#43. The best novelist of my generation is an Italian living in Paris, still working and improving - Italo Calvino. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Generations quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#44. Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence on a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one's government is not necessarily to secure freedom. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Generations quotes by Thomas Browne
#45. Grave-stones tell truth scarce forty years. Generations pass while families last not three oaks. #Quote by Thomas Browne
Generations quotes by Thomas Berry
#46. The Great Work - the work of ensuring a just, healthy, beautiful, and sustainably life-giving world for future generations of all species. #Quote by Thomas Berry
Generations quotes by Dale A. Ostlie
#47. It can be said that we are all "star dust," the product of heavy element generation within previous generations of stars. #Quote by Dale A. Ostlie
Generations quotes by Camille Paglia
#48. The smouldering eroticism of great European actresses like Jeanne Moreau demonstrated to my generations women's archetypal mystery and glamour, completely missing from the totalitarian world-view of the misogynist Foucault. For me, the big French D is not Derrida, but Deneuve. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Generations quotes by Fred Rogers
#49. One of the greatest dignities of humankind is that each successive generation is invested in the welfare of each new generation. #Quote by Fred Rogers
Generations quotes by William James
#50. Let no youth have any anxiety about the upshot of his education, whatever the line of it may be. If he keep faithfully busy each hour of the working-day, he may safely leave the result to itself. He can with perfect certainty count on waking up some fine morning to find himself one of the competent ones of his generation. #Quote by William James
Generations quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#51. We have begun a fight that it may be will take many a generation to complete ... but you know that men are not put into this world to go the path of ease; they are put into this world to go the path of pain and struggle ... We have given our lives to the enterprise, and that is richer and the moral is greater. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Generations quotes by Louise McKinney
#52. What, after all, is the purpose of a woman's life? The purpose of a woman's life is just the same as the purpose of a man's life: that she may make the best possible contribution to the generation in which she is living. #Quote by Louise McKinney
Generations quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#53. I do not believe in a child world. It is a fantasy world. I believe the child should be taught from the very first that the whole world is his world, that adult and child share one world, that all generations are needed. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Generations quotes by Paul Hawken
#54. Sustainability is an economic state where the demands placed upon the environment by people and commerce can be met without reducing the capacity of the environment to provide for future generations. It can also be expressed in the simple terms of an economic golden rule for the restorative economy: Leave the world better than you found it, take no more than you need, try not to harm life or the environment, make amends if you do. #Quote by Paul Hawken
Generations quotes by Will Durant
#55. It is a mistake to think that the past is dead. Nothing that has ever happened is quite without influence at this moment. The present is merely the past rolled up and concentrated in this second of time. You, too, are your past; often your face is your autobiography; you are what you are because of what you have been; because of your heredity stretching back into forgotten generations; because of every element of environment that has affected you, every man or woman that has met you, every book that you have read, every experience that you have had; all these are accumulated in your memory, your body, your character, your soul. So with a city, a country, and a race; it is its past, and cannot be understood without it. #Quote by Will Durant
Generations quotes by Andre Gide
#56. Enduring fame is promised only to those writers who can offer to successive generations a substance constantly renewed; for every generation arrives upon the scene with its own particular hunger. #Quote by Andre Gide
Generations quotes by Susan Brooks
#57. A budget matters to people who worry about protecting and saving critical programs like Medicare and Social Security. A budget matters to younger workers who fear that more and more money will be taken from their paychecks to fund another generation's spending spree. #Quote by Susan Brooks
Generations quotes by Angie Harmon
#58. I pray every day for my little girls. It's hard out there for the younger generation. #Quote by Angie Harmon
Generations quotes by Debasish Mridha
#59. A great teacher plants the seeds of greatness in the minds of future generations. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Generations quotes by Erika Johansen
#60. There was no quick and easy eradication of evil. There was only the passage of time, of generations, of people raising children who would hold all other lives just as valuable as their own. #Quote by Erika Johansen
Generations quotes by Harry Duran
#61. The imposter syndrome is at the core off every human being's soul. We're born with it. It's why human beings are alive today. It's an innate sense you're born with. It's why our ancestors avoided the saber-toothed tiger, because they doubted themselves. They were scared of certain things. That's why they worked hard to learn how to build fire, and taking it all through the generations, that impostor syndrome is always going to be there. Instead of being afraid and letting it get you down, be that 1% who embraces the impostor syndrome and realizes that it's never going away. Because the impostor syndrome exists, it weeds out the 99% of people who cannot get over it and cannot get over their fear. It puts the people who do, into the top 1%, and anyone can join us here, when you just embrace the impostor syndrome. #Quote by Harry Duran
Generations quotes by Adam Smith
#62. The problem with fiat money is that it rewards the minority that can handle money, but fools the generation that has worked and saved money. #Quote by Adam Smith
Generations quotes by Herbert Spencer
#63. The more numerous public instrumentalities become, the more is there generated in citizens the notion that everything is to be done for them, and nothing by them. Every generation is made less familiar with the attainment of desired ends by individual actions or private agencies; until, eventually, governmental agencies come to be thought of as the only available agencies. #Quote by Herbert Spencer
Generations quotes by Pat Mitchell
#64. VOTE!!! Remember what the suffragists said when they finally won their long hard battle to get us the right to vote, knowing that they probably would never get to exercise the right or see the results; they said, 'this is not for ourselves alone.' It was for us and every generation of women to come. If we don't vote, we are ignoring history and giving away the future. #Quote by Pat Mitchell
Generations quotes by Burt Ward
#65. I have two children. I have a daughter 29, and a daughter four. They are 25 years apart, so you speak about generations and I must tell you, I have a philosophy and that is every 25 years I'm going to sire another child. #Quote by Burt Ward
Generations quotes by Karin Slaughter
#66. As voters and taxpayers, we must demand that our local governments properly prioritize libraries. As citizens, we must invest in our library down the street so that the generations served by that library grow up to be adults who contribute not just to their local communities but to the world. #Quote by Karin Slaughter
Generations quotes by Charles Galton Darwin
#67. When homo sapiens is changing, it will not be by the whole race gaining simultaneously whatever qualities better fit it for survival, but rather by certain types of mankind proving superior to the rest in survival value, so that they contribute a larger proportion to the later generations, and in so doing drag the average qualities of humanity in the same direction. #Quote by Charles Galton Darwin
Generations quotes by Joseph Mawle
#68. We've got nine generations of farmers in my family, in Warwickshire. And I do feel connected to being a farmer's son. There was a time when I didn't, when I rebelled against it, but there's certainly that sort of work ethic within me. #Quote by Joseph Mawle
Generations quotes by Siddharth Katragadda
#69. Even the humblest men have a strange reason behind greed. Every man thinks money solves problems - and every man thinks not just of himself, but his next three generations - there is a probability he will live to see those generations - and he wants to care for them in times of strife. #Quote by Siddharth Katragadda
Generations quotes by Donald Cargill
#70. But go on, valiant champion; you die not as a fool, though the apostate, unfaithful, and lukewarm ministers and professors of this generation think and say so. #Quote by Donald Cargill
Generations quotes by David Amram
#71. I wish to share and pass down some of my generation's traits, and encourage young people to create their own art, music, and literature. #Quote by David Amram
Generations quotes by Dave Grohl
#72. A lot of people from my generation of music are so focused on playing things correctly or to perfection that they're stuck in that safe place. #Quote by Dave Grohl
Generations quotes by Luis Valdez
#73. A lot of the public responses are based on the prejudices and ignorance, they've been inherited from previous generations. California has always been a multicultural state, but the thing is, you've got to open your eyes and people in general need to get over their own prejudices. #Quote by Luis Valdez
Generations quotes by Blaine Harden
#74. Most North Koreans are sent to the camps without any judicial process, and many die there without learning the charges against them. They are taken from their homes, usually at night, by the Bowibu, the National Security Agency. Guilt by association is legal in North Korea. A wrongdoer is often imprisoned with his parents and children. Kim II Sung laid down the law in 1972: '[E]nemies of class, whoever they are, their seed must
be eliminated through three generations. #Quote by Blaine Harden
Generations quotes by Paul C. Nagel
#75. Rather than pound or a national mind that he believed had been closed by his critics, John Quincy Adams decided to seek a place in the is the esteem of future generations. #Quote by Paul C. Nagel
Generations quotes by Joseph Lovering
#76. The great problem of today is, how to subject all physical phenomena to dynamical laws. With all the experimental devices, and all the mathematical appliances of this generation, the human mind has been baffled in its attempts to construct a universal science of physics. #Quote by Joseph Lovering
Generations quotes by Jack Nicklaus
#77. Who in the world remembers who won the 1975 Westchester Classic or the 1978 Western Open? Basically, the majors are the only comparison over time ... played on the same courses for generations. All the best players are always there. #Quote by Jack Nicklaus
Generations quotes by Randeep Hooda
#78. Contrary to the royal and uptight image of polo, I want to bring it to a younger generation. This is a great sport that can have a larger audience and appeal to more people. Sportsmanship is lacking in many other sports that I don't want to name. #Quote by Randeep Hooda
Generations quotes by Beverly Campbell
#79. Discernment, the ability to see beyond the literal to the divine essential, has ever been God's gift to women. Since Eve, women have faced the challenge of ambiguous choices that carry with them holy, life-altering consequences. On the correct resolution of these abilities hangs the future of generations, the civilizing of society, the basic dignity of the human race, and mortal life itself. Daily, women must make decisions based on things not seen or even known clearly. Often these decisions must be based on what serves the greater good for the greatest number. Often such decisions require women to set aside their own well-being in favor of another's. It is a source of strength and comfort to many women to know that inherent in their divine nature is this innate ability to be in tune with God's purposes. #Quote by Beverly Campbell
Generations quotes by Alan Greenspan
#80. The number one problem in today's generation and economy is the lack of financial literacy. #Quote by Alan Greenspan
Generations quotes by Arianna Huffington
#81. The next generation will remake the world in a way that allows us to live in a more sustainable way, both personally and globally. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Generations quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#82. I believe without any doubt that you are the finest generation this Church has ever had. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Generations quotes by Joshua Cohen
#83. my generation's screwed - we're not the immigrant experience, we're not the assimilation experience - we're the first nothing generation, we've got nothing to write about and no one to read it, everyone too busy getting technologized, too harried with degrees. #Quote by Joshua Cohen
Generations quotes by Anne Graham Lotz
#84. Anything John Stott says is worth listening to. Anything he writes is worth reading. Basic Christianity is not only a classic must-read for every believer; it is truly a blessing preserved on the written page for the enrichment of this generation and those to come. #Quote by Anne Graham Lotz
Generations quotes by Louis L'Amour
#85. We hold this land only for a time. Whether we win it in peace or war, we hold it only in trust for other peoples, and other generations. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Generations quotes by Claude Brown
#86. Despite everything that Harlem did to our generation, I think it gave something to a few. It gave them a strength that couldn't be obtained anywhere else. #Quote by Claude Brown
Generations quotes by Dillon Burroughs
#87. The actions you take today not only impact you; they influence generations. Every matter matters for eternity. #Quote by Dillon Burroughs
Generations quotes by Joe Biden
#88. The White House isn't the place to learn how to deal with international crisis, the balance of power, war and peace, and the economic future of the next generation. #Quote by Joe Biden
Generations quotes by Joseph Prince
#89. For generations, the body of Christ has been defeated and put under a constant siege of condemnation from the accuser because they believe wrongly that the Holy Spirit convicts believers of their sins. #Quote by Joseph Prince
Generations quotes by Nicholas Wolterstorff
#90. Many are the scholars who make it their professional occupation to occupy themselves in this towering edifice of culture, exploring its nook and crannies, developing their responses, making their contributions here and there, and helping to hand it on to succeeding generations. For some the temptation proves irresistible to go yet farther and make this the concern of their lives, letting society go its own sorry way while they lock themselves away in this abiding, socially transcendent cultural stronghold, acquiescing in society while pursuing Bildung. As Rotterdam burns, they study Sanskrit verb forms. #Quote by Nicholas Wolterstorff
Generations quotes by Mark Pesce
#91. Basically, to sum up: We're a generation of anarchists, and we just haven't gotten our hands on the means of production yet so we can fetter the wheels. We haven't been handed the controls yet except to the Internet, which is why it looks like it does. #Quote by Mark Pesce
Generations quotes by Marcello Malpighi
#92. The generation of seeds ... is therefore marvelous and analogous to the other productions of living things. For first of all an umbilicus appears ... Its extremity gradually expands and after gathering a colliquamentous ichor becomes analogous to an amnion ... In the course of time the seed or fetus begins to become visible. #Quote by Marcello Malpighi
Generations quotes by Tom Coburn
#93. I still believe that term limits is the best way to ensure that the next generation, not the next election, is the central concern in our elected bodies. #Quote by Tom Coburn
Generations quotes by Oliver DeMille
#94. The founding American generations did something that almost no others have ever done. They read the fine print! They taught their children to read bills, laws, court cases, legislative debates, executive decrees, and bureaucratic policies. They read them in schoolrooms and at home ... They said they would consider their children uneducated if they didn't read such things. #Quote by Oliver DeMille
Generations quotes by Sandra Day O'Connor
#95. I think we may be seeing the beginnings of a resurgence of civic-mindedness in this country. Hopefully the younger generations, which came out in record numbers during the last presidential election, will pass their enthusiasm on to their children. #Quote by Sandra Day O'Connor
Generations quotes by Jason Mraz
#96. The soil is actually the greatest technology we have for adapting to climate change. And I feel it's our generation's duty to build it back up. #Quote by Jason Mraz
Generations quotes by Sarah Holman
#97. For God and for the future generations. #Quote by Sarah Holman
Generations quotes by Theodore Gray
#98. Imagine the great depths of time required for countless generations of corals, clams, and microorganisms to live out their lives, pass on their legacy, then die and sink to the ocean floor - just so you can have a gravel driveway. Our own lives, of course, are far less meaningful. We leave nothing, decaying into plant food and fertilizer in just a few years. These creatures built mountains. Our cities rest on their bones. #Quote by Theodore Gray
Generations quotes by Philip Toynbee
#99. A bomb under the West car park at Twickenham on an international day would end fascism in England for a generation. #Quote by Philip Toynbee
Generations quotes by Frederick Lenz
#100. Molecules are moving. Universes are colliding. Generations are being born and dying simultaneously, throughout eternity. As one of our great American poets, Walt Whitman, once said: "I contain multitudes." #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Generations quotes by Bayard Rustin
#101. For generations the status quo has been based on violence, with the Negro as victim. A few whites have managed to be liberal without feeling a direct threat to their social position. Now, as the Negroes reach the stage where they make specific, if minimum, demands, a new and revolutionary situation has developed. There is little middle ground on which to maneuver and few compromises that are possible. For the first time, the white liberals are forced to stand for racial justice or to repudiate the liberal principles which they have always wanted to believe in. #Quote by Bayard Rustin
Generations quotes by David Suzuki
#102. We are upsetting the atmosphere upon which all life depends. In the late 80s when I began to take climate change seriously, we referred to global warming as a "slowmotion catastrophe" one we expected to kick in perhaps generations later. Instead, the signs of change have accelerated alarmingly. #Quote by David Suzuki
Generations quotes by Karl Wiggins
#103. We look at the way some kids behave and instantly blame the parents, and more often than not we're correct. The school bully is often a sign of poor parenting. That's the immediate cause, but if we search for the root cause we have to dig much deeper than that. What on earth in that kid's head makes it seem okay to bully people? Why are the parents doing such a poor job of bringing up their children? Probably because they didn't have very effective role models themselves when they were growing up. It could go back generations #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Generations quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#104. Every generation wants to be the last. Every generation hates the next trend in music they can't understand. We hate to give up those reins of our culture. To find our own music playing in elevators. The ballad for our revolution, turned into background music for a television commercial. To find our generation's clothes and hair suddenly retro. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Generations quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#105. As bitter as it may be, the fact remains: It is the irresponsibleness of masses of people that lies at the basis of fascism of all countries, nations, and races, etc. Fascism is the result of man's distortion over thousands of years. It could have developed in any country or nation. It is not a character trait that is confined specifically to the Germans or Italians. It is manifest in every single individual of the world. The Austrian saying "Da kann man halt nix machen" expresses this fact just as the American saying "Let George do it." That this situation was brought about by a social development which goes back thousands of years does not alter the fact itself. It is man himself who is responsible and not "historical developments." It was the shifting of the responsibility from living man to "historical developments" that caused the downfall of the socialist freedom movements. However, the events of the past twenty years demand the responsibility of the working masses of people.

If we take "freedom" to mean first and foremost the responsibility of each individual to shape personal, occupational, and social existence in a rational way, then it can be said that there is no greater fear than the fear of the creation of general freedom. Unless this basic problem is given complete priority and solved, there will never be a freedom capable of lasting more than one or two generations. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Generations quotes by Ronald Reagan
#106. Generations hence, parents will take their children to these woods to show them how the land must have looked to the first Pilgrims and pioneers. And as Americans wander through these forests, climb these mountains, they will sense the love and majesty of the Creator of all of that. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Generations quotes by Gabe Polsky
#107. What I found interesting about Slava Fetisov was that he went through three different generations of Soviet hockey. In the late 70's, he experienced the Miracle on Ice, and then in the 80's became with his teammates the Russian Five, the most dominant team in the history of hockey, and then helped bring down the hockey system when the Soviet Union collapsed and became one of the first players to play in the NHL, and then ultimately came back to Russia. #Quote by Gabe Polsky
Generations quotes by Blake Mycoskie
#108. We believe Skype in the Classroom will be a milestone in inspiring the next generation of social entrepreneurs and we can't wait to connect students with TOMS partners. #Quote by Blake Mycoskie
Generations quotes by Christopher Tunnard
#109. There is a need in every generation to study the past, to absorb its spirit, to preserve its messages ... it's a collaboration of ourselves and our ancestors, the result is a deeper understanding for individuals and in consequence, a broader culture for the nation. #Quote by Christopher Tunnard
Generations quotes by Gemma Malley
#110. Many people lost their lives fighting for these rights - to vote, to be free, to work, to be able to get on the same bus as someone considered their superior. And it was the next generations who embedded these changes, who came to view women as equals to men, who came to understand that skin colour is of no relevance. Young people are the future. Without them, the world stands still. #Quote by Gemma Malley
Generations quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#111. Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Generations quotes by Sigurd F. Olson
#112. Ethical and moral questions and how we answer them may determine whether primal scenes will continue to be a source of joy and comfort to future generations. The decisions are ours and we have to search our minds and souls for the right answers ... We must be eternally vigilant, embrace the broad concept of an environmental ethic to survive. #Quote by Sigurd F. Olson
Generations quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#113. The main task for us all is that of a new evangelization aimed at helping younger generations to rediscover the true face of God, who is Love. To you young people, who are in search of a firm hope, I address the very words that Saint Paul wrote to the persecuted Christians in Rome at that time: "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" (Rom 15:13). #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Generations quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#114. My hair would continue to gray, and then one day, it would fall out entirely, and then, on a day meaninglessly close to the present one, meaninglessly like the present one, I would disappear from the earth. And all these emotions, all these yearnings, all these data, if that helps to clinch the enormity of what I'm talking about, would be gone. And that's what immortality means. It means selfishness. My generations belief that each one of us matters more than you or anyone else would think. #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Generations quotes by Paul Cain
#115. God is raising up a new standard, a new banner if you will, that's going to radically change the expression, the understanding of Christianity in our generation ... #Quote by Paul Cain
Generations quotes by Paul Hawken
#116. What a great time to be born, what a great time to be alive, because this generation gets to completely change this world. #Quote by Paul Hawken
Generations quotes by Jonah Goldberg
#117. Liberals and leftists have been dismissing inconvenient facts by attacking motives for generations. In the 1930s, '40s, and '50s, Soviet spies and abettors attacked the motives of their accusers because the fact of their guilt was undeniable. In the 1960s, over a thousand psychiatrists who'd never even met Barry Goldwater signed a petition saying the GOP candidate was too mentally unstable to be president. #Quote by Jonah Goldberg
Generations quotes by Cassandra Clare
#118. Since the demon threat is invisible to mundanes, they must assign the threat to others of their own kind. They place the face of their enemy onto the face of their neighbor, and thus are generations of misery assured.

-Valentine Morgenstern #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Generations quotes by Veronica Roth
#119. They would wait for the passage of time - for the generations to pass, for each one to produce more genetically healed humans. Or, as you currently know them . . . the Divergent. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Generations quotes by Charles Darwin
#120. When we compare the individuals of the same variety or sub-variety of our older cultivated plants and animals, one of the first points which strikes us is, that they generally differ more from each other than do the individuals of any one species or variety in a state of nature. And if we reflect on the vast diversity of the plants and animals which have been cultivated, and which have varied during all ages under the most different climates and treatment, we are driven to conclude that this great variability is due to our domestic productions having been raised under conditions of life not so uniform as, and somewhat different from, those to which the parent species had been exposed under nature. There is, also, some probability in the view propounded by Andrew Knight, that this variability may be partly connected with excess of food. It seems clear that organic beings must be exposed during several generations to new conditions to cause any great amount of variation; and that, when the organisation has once begun to vary, it generally continues varying for many generations. No case is on record of a variable organism ceasing to vary under cultivation. Our oldest cultivated plants, such as wheat, still yield new varieties: our oldest domesticated animals are still capable of rapid improvement or modification. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Generations quotes by Robin D.G. Kelley
#121. Too often, our standards for evaluating social movements pivot around whether or not they "succeeded" in realizing their visions rather than on the merits or power of the visions themselves. By such a measure, virtually every radical movement failed because the basic power relations they sought to change remained pretty much intact. And yet it is precisely these alternative visions and dreams that inspire new generations to struggle for change. #Quote by Robin D.G. Kelley
Generations quotes by Patrick Phillips
#122. If the mobs were not made up of masked Klansmen, just well-known local men 'with their horrible faces,' it is natural to wonder how those ordinary people first coalesced into gangs of night riders. How, that is, did a bunch of farmers decide to set fire to churches led by respected men like Levi Greenlee Jr. and Boyd Oliver, and to train the beads of their shotguns on the houses of peaceful landowners like Joseph and Eliza Kellogg? How did they summon the nerve to threaten the cooks and maids of even the wealthiest, most powerful whites in Cumming? Given that it required an organized efforts, kept up not just over months but years, and given just how much will it took to sustain the racial ban generations - from what source did all that energy come, and in what epic drama did these people think they were at last taking part? #Quote by Patrick Phillips
Generations quotes by Anna Kingsford
#123. It may be said that children are but newly-issued editions of old compositions, re-bound and corrected, with fresh introductions, modern print and headpieces, but the text is that of former editions handed down from generation to generation. #Quote by Anna Kingsford
Generations quotes by Bruce Feiler
#124. The bottom line: If you want a happier family, bring those skeletons out of the closet. #Quote by Bruce Feiler
Generations quotes by Brene Brown
#125. In order for slavery to work, in order for us to buy, sell, beat, and trade people like animals, Americans had to completely dehumanize slaves. And whether we directly participated in that or were simply a member of a culture that at one time normalized that behavior, it shaped us. We can't undo that level of dehumanizing in one or two generations. I believe Black Lives Matter is a movement to rehumanize black citizens. All lives matter, but not all lives need to be pulled back into moral inclusion. Not all people were subjected to the psychological process of demonizing and being made less than human so we could justify the inhumane practice of slavery. #Quote by Brene Brown
Generations quotes by CC Sabathia
#126. I grew up with video games. My generation kind of grew up with the Nintendo and the Sega Genesis. Then, I had a Dreamcast and, finally, the PlayStation. So yeah, I've always been a big gamer. #Quote by CC Sabathia

Generations quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#128. Please don't wait until the doctors tell you that you are going to have a baby to begin to take care of it. It is already there. Whatever you are, whatever you do, your baby will get it. Anything you eat, any worries that are on your mind will be for him or her. Can you tell me that you cannot smile? Think of the baby, and smile for him, for her, for the future generations. Please don't tell me that a smile and your sorrow just don't go together. It's your sorrow, but what about your baby? It's not his sorrow, its not her sorrow. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Generations quotes by Edna Ferber
#129. When a new post-war generation has grown to puberty and to youth and to manhood and womanhood, it should read, and it should be realistically told, of the futility, the idiocy, the utter depravity of war. For that matter, this instruction could begin at the age of six with the taking of those toy guns out of those toy holsters and throwing them in the ash-cans where they belong. #Quote by Edna Ferber
Generations quotes by Jonathan Demme
#130. I'm of Neil Young's generation. Neil Young's songs have spoken to what it's like to be at least a white male of his generation over the years. Endlessly, he's sung about the stuff that I really care about. He's put into words the feelings that hit you at different transitional moments in life. #Quote by Jonathan Demme
Generations quotes by Amit Ray
#131. A nuclear-weapons-free world is our commitment to the next generation. #Quote by Amit Ray
Generations quotes by Iain M. Banks
#132. They're on a cusp; a highly heterogeneous but highly connected
and stressedly connected
civilization. I'm not sure that one approach could encompass the needs of their different systems. The particular stage of communication they're at, combining rapidity and selectivity, usually with something added to the signal and almost always with something missed out, means that what passes for truth often has to travel at the speed of failing memories, changing attitudes, and new generations. Even when this form of handicap is recognized all they ever try to do, as a rule, is codify it, tidy it up. Their attempts of filter become part of the noise, and they seem unable to bring any more thought to bear on the matter than that which leads them to try and simplify what can only be understood by coming to terms with its complexity. #Quote by Iain M. Banks
Generations quotes by Max Brooks
#133. Happy but isn't the human factor what connexus a deeply to our past will future generations care as much for chronologies and casualty statistics as they would for the personal accounts of individuals not so different from themselves. #Quote by Max Brooks

#135. By the end of the 20th Century there will be a generation to whom it will not be injurious to read a dozen quire of newspapers daily, to be constantly called to the telephone ... and to live half their time in a railway carriage or in a flying machine. #Quote by Max Nordau
Generations quotes by William Faulkner
#136. Our windows were dark. The entrance was empty. I walked close to the left wall when I entered, but it was empty: just the stairs curving up into shadows echoes of feet in the sad generations like light dust upon the shadows, my feet waking them like dust, lightly to settle again.

Generations quotes by William R. Ferris
#137. We have, for generations, been trying to be more inclusive of the word Southern. And a symbol like the confederate flag indicates white only are allowed into that world. And removing the Confederate flag from public view to the pages of history is long overdue. #Quote by William R. Ferris
Generations quotes by Lee Kuan Yew
#138. It is essential to rear a generation at the very top of society that has all the qualities needed to lead and give the people the inspiration and the drive to make it succeed. In short, the elite.. Every society tries to produce this type. The British have special schools for them: the gifted and talented are sent to Eton and Harrow. #Quote by Lee Kuan Yew
Generations quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#139. The reason something becomes retrospectively significant in a far-flung future is detached from the reason it was significant at the time of its creation - and that's almost always due to a recalibration of social ideologies that future generations will accept as normative. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Generations quotes by Bobbie Ann Mason
#140. During the Cold War, workers proudly contributed to national defense, but the carelessness and haste in handling toxic waste created a nightmare of pollution for subsequent generations. #Quote by Bobbie Ann Mason
Generations quotes by Brian Godawa
#141. Ba'al led Ashtart down the underground tunnel in a dog collar. It had been thirteen years since the battle of nine kings, where Marduk had defeated Ashtart and became Ba'al, the king of the gods of Canaan. Ashtart's plan had been set back generations with the devastation of her giant progeny throughout the land by Chedorlaomer's forces. But with the addition of Ba'al as the Most High God of Canaan, the two of them together could do what she could not do alone. Ashtart had revitalized the original program of miscegenation of the Watchers. The rest of the pantheon of gods were fearful of the consequences of such a pursuit, since El Shaddai had already flooded the earth the first time such a course of action had been undertaken. But with the two most powerful divinities united, the pantheon could do little but sit back and see what happened. #Quote by Brian Godawa
Generations quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#142. I live in a town that's two and a half hours from the border. I know people who have lived in San Antonio for generations, sometimes seven generations, their families are from there, and they are of Mexican descent, and they've never gone farther than the border. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Generations quotes by Richard Rohr
#143. Without elders, much of our history has been formed by juniors reacting, overreacting, and protecting their own temporary privilege, with no deep-time vision like the Iroquois Nation, which considered, "What would be good for the next seven generations?" Compare that to the present "Tea Party" movement in America. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Generations quotes by Alphonse Daudet
#144. The clever way death cuts us down, but makes it look like just a thinning-out. Generations never fall with one blow - that would be too sad and too obvious. Death prefers to do it piecemeal. The meadow is attacked from several sides at the same time. One of us goes one day; another some time afterwards; you have to stand back and look around you to take in what's missing, to grasp the vast slaughter of your generation ... #Quote by Alphonse Daudet
Generations quotes by Kristian Goldmund Aumann
#145. The smell of blood remains for generations. #Quote by Kristian Goldmund Aumann
Generations quotes by Dalai Lama
#146. I believe that to meet the challenge of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. We must all learn to work not just for our own self, family, or nation but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace, the equitable use of natural resources, and through concern for future generations, the proper care of the environment. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Generations quotes by Brett Harris
#147. The beauty of collaboration between older and younger generations is that we combine strength with wisdom - a surefire way to accomplish more for the glory of God. #Quote by Brett Harris

Generations quotes by Robert Moss
#151. On a psychic level, we could be carrying energies and entities and cravings and habits and confusion and patterns of behavior from generation to generation that we don't want. We could also have picked up loose energies or entities from places we visit or live, and this could be very confusing. It could reinforce or even produce addictions and cravings that don't really belong to us. #Quote by Robert Moss
Generations quotes by Douglas Murray
#152. In such a view of society, however greatly you might wish to benefit from an endless supply of cheap labour, a wider range of cuisine or the salving of a generation's conscience, you still would not have a right to wholly transform your society. Because that which you inherited that is good should also be passed on. Even were you to decide that some of the views or lifestyles of your ancestors could be improved upon, it does not follow that you should hand over to the next generation a society that is chaotic, fractured and unrecognisable. #Quote by Douglas Murray
Generations quotes by Wilford Woodruff
#153. The object is not so much to get you to keep a journal while you are young, as it is to get you to continue it after you become men and women, even through your whole lives. This is especially needed in the generation in which you live, for you live in as important a generation as the children of men ever saw, and it is far more important that you should begin early to keep a journal and follow the practice while you live, than that other generations should do so. #Quote by Wilford Woodruff
Generations quotes by Newton Lee
#154. While information is the oxygen of the modern age, disinformation is the carbon monoxide that can poison generations. #Quote by Newton Lee

Generations quotes by Gertrude Stein
#156. One of the things that is most striking about the young generation is that they never talk about their own futures, there are no futures for this generation, not any of them and so naturally they never think of them. It is very striking, they do not live in the present they just live, as well as they can, and they do not plan. It is extraordinary that whole populations have no projects for a future, none at all. #Quote by Gertrude Stein
Generations quotes by Frank Gehry
#157. Architecture has always been a very idealistic profession. It's about making the world a better place, and it works over the generations because people go on vacation and they look for it. #Quote by Frank Gehry

Generations quotes by Julian Barnes
#164. By now, I probably preferred secondhand books to new ones. In America such items were disparagingly referred to as "previously owned"; but this very continuity of ownership was part of their charm. A book dispensed its explanation of the world to one person, then another, and so on down the generations; different hands held the same book and drew sometimes the same, sometimes a different wisdom from it. #Quote by Julian Barnes

Generations quotes by Milan Kundera
#168. The ethic of ecstasy is the opposite of the trial's ethic; under its protection everybody does whatever he wants: now anyone can suck his thumb as he likes, from infancy to graduation, and it is a freedom no one will be willing to give up; look around you on the Metro; seated or standing, every single person has a finger in some orifice of his face-in the ear, in the mouth, in the nose; no one feels he's being observed, and everyone dreams of writing a book to tell about his unique and inimitable self, which is picking its nose; no one listens to anyone else, everyone writes, and each of them writes the way rock is danced to: alone, for himself, focused on himself yet making the same motions as all the others. In this situation of uniform egocentricity, the sense of guilt does not play the role it once did; the tribunals still operate, but they are fascinated exclusively by the past; they see only the core of the century; they see only the generations that are old or dead. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Generations quotes by Pete Hamill
#169. Sinatra slowly found a way to allow tenderness into the performance while remaining manly. He perfected the role of the Tender Tough Guy and passed it on to several generations of Americans. Before him, that archetype did not exist in American popular culture. #Quote by Pete Hamill

Generations quotes by George Orwell
#172. From the proletarians nothing is to be feared. Left to themselves, they will continue from generation to generation and from century to century, working, breeding, and dying, not only without any impulse to rebel, but without the power of grasping that the world could be other than it is. #Quote by George Orwell
Generations quotes by Neil Young
#173. I have a lot faith in the younger generation of music lovers. Youth isn't living in the past; if somebody tells them that there's something better than what they have, they're going to check it out. And if they like it, they're going to get it. I'm not worried about the youth. Young people aren't just looking back, they are also looking forward. #Quote by Neil Young

#175. The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining super capitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control ... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent. #Quote by Larry McDonald
Generations quotes by David Marusek
#176. The journey of a thousands suns begins today.

Some may question whether the journey is worth the sacrifice and danger.

To them I say that no sacrifice is too dear and no danger too great to ensure the very survival of our human species.

What will we find when we arrive at our new homes? That's an open question. For a century, deep-space probes have reported alien lifeforms, but thus far none of which we recognize as intelligent beings. Are we the only biological intelligence in the universe? Perhaps our definition of intelligence is too narrow, too specio-centric.

For, are not trees intelligent, who know to shed their leaves at the end of summer? Are not turtles intelligent, who know when to bury themselves in mud under ice? Is not all life intelligent, that knows how to pass its vital essence to new generations?

Because half of intelligence resides in the body, be it plant or animal.

I now commend these brave colonists to the galaxy, to join their minds and bodies to the community of living beings they will encounter there, and to establish our rightful place among the stars. #Quote by David Marusek
Generations quotes by Nathan Lewis
#177. The biggest challenge is how to get people to wake up and realize this is a one-shot deal.

#179. Each and every time, a new generation has risen up and done what's needed to be done. Today we are called once more - and it is time for our generation to answer that call. For that is our unyielding faith - that in the face of impossible odds, people who love their country can change it. #Quote by Barack Obama

Generations quotes by David Cherubim
#183. At this most crucial time in the course of evolution we are all faced with the appalling fact that we may, at any moment, destroy our precious material lives and our wonderful little earth through advanced technological means. With the advance of civilization has developed the ghastly power to destroy all of humanity at the push of a button. We are now on the verge of destroying ourselves utterly from the face of the earth! We have become mere slaves to subhuman types of destructive thinking and action! We are out of control in every direction! More than any other time on earth we are all faced with the potential dangers of political anarchy and ruin, and we are all exposed to the terrific possibility of a Third World War, more hideous than any other war in the history of our planet. What we do at this most crucial time will determine the destinies of humanity for many generations, even centuries, to come. #Quote by David Cherubim
Generations quotes by Confucius
#184. Tzu-chang[21] asked whether we can know what is to be ten generations hence. The Master said, The Yin[22] took over the manners of the Hsia; the harm and the good that they did them can be known. The Chou took over the manners of the Yin; the harm and the good that they did them can be known. And we may know what shall be, even an hundred generations hence, whoever follows Chou. #Quote by Confucius
Generations quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#185. Without language we have no past, the present is unquantifiable, and we lack a means to recognize and express the paradoxical future challenges of humanity. In absence of a shared language, we cannot understand prior generation's conflicts, desires, and achievements, nor can we communicate with future generations our essential values and the wisdom we garner through undergoing our own socioeconomic crises #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Generations quotes by John Mellencamp
#186. There is nothing more sad or glorious than generations changing hands. #Quote by John Mellencamp
Generations quotes by Bill Gates
#187. The nuclear industry has this amazing record, even equipment from generations one and two. But nuclear mishaps tend to come in these big events - Chernobyl, Three Mile Island, and now Fukushima - so it's more visible. #Quote by Bill Gates
Generations quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#188. It has taken time and the blundering wisdom and anarchic greed of our ancestry to construct the modern city of consolidated institutions. It is a great historically amassed communal creation. If you fly above it at night, it is a jeweled wonder of the universe, floating like a giant liner on the sea of darkness. It is smart, accomplished, sophisticated, and breathtakingly beautiful. And it glimmers and sparkles as all things breakable glimmer and sparkle. You wonder how much God had to do with this, how much of the splendor and insolence of the modern city creatively built from the disparate intentions of generations of men comes of the inspiration of God. Because it is the city of the unremarked God, the sometime-thing God, the God of history. #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
Generations quotes by Edward Felten
#189. The next generation of innovators, who need neutrality the most, are not at the bargaining table. They're hard at work in their labs or classrooms, dreaming of the next big thing, and hoping that the Internet is as open to them as it was to the founders of Google. #Quote by Edward Felten
Generations quotes by George Will
#190. The most important business of one generation is the raising of the next generation. Nothing else you do in life will be as deeply satisfying ... #Quote by George Will
Generations quotes by Hermann Weyl
#191. No mathematician of equal stature has risen from our generation ... Hilbert was singularly free from national and racial prejudices; in all public questions, be they political, social or spiritual, he stood forever on the side of freedom. #Quote by Hermann Weyl
Generations quotes by Jo Walton
#192. Left to themselves, people remake their origin stories every few generations to suit present circumstances. #Quote by Jo Walton
Generations quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#193. Telling our personal story constitutes an act of consciousness that defines the ethical lining of a person's constitution. Recounting personal stories promotes personal growth, spurs the performance of selfless deeds, and in doing so enhances the ability of the equitable eye of humanity to scroll rearward and forward. Every person must become familiar with our communal history of struggle, loss, redemption, and meaningfully contemplate the meaning behind our personal existence in order to draft a proper and prosperous future for succeeding generations. Accordingly, every person is responsible for sharing their story using the language of thought that best expresses their sanguine reminiscences. Without a record of pastimes, we will never know what were, what we now are, or what we might become by steadfastly and honorably struggling with mortal chores. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Generations quotes by Darren Star
#194. 'Younger' is about reinvention and how age is very much a state of mind. I think the show is ultimately about reinvention. I do think it explores, ultimately, the differences between generations, through the prism of reinvention. That reinvention is possible. #Quote by Darren Star
Generations quotes by Julian Bond

Generations quotes by Stanley Donwood
#196. I come from a generation in England that considered making money or trying to promote yourself to be morally suspect. #Quote by Stanley Donwood
Generations quotes by Alan Nunnelee
#197. Tonight, we reclaim our country so that we can pass on to future generations the freedoms and the opportunity that we have inherited from those who came before us. #Quote by Alan Nunnelee
Generations quotes by Beth A. Jones
#198. To dance is to reach for a word that doesn't exist,
To sing the heartsong of a thousand generations,
To feel the meaning of a moment in time. #Quote by Beth A. Jones
Generations quotes by Winona LaDuke
#199. It is essential to collectively struggle to recover our status as Daughters of the Earth. In that is our strength, and the security, not in the predator, but in the security of our Mother, for our future generations. In that we can insure our security as the Mothers of our Nations. #Quote by Winona LaDuke
Generations quotes by Mike Lee
#200. I would vote against raising the national debt ceiling. Again, this is about mortgaging the future of unborn generations of Americans. It's a form of taxation without representation. I don't think we can do that. #Quote by Mike Lee
