Human Beings quotes by Meg Rosoff
#1. The average attention span of the modern human being is about half as long as whatever you're trying to tell them. #Quote by Meg Rosoff
Human Beings quotes by Matthew Henry
#2. If you take a book into your hands, be it 'God's book, or any other useful good book,' rely on God to make it profitable to you. Do not waste time reading unprofitable books. When you read, do so not out of vain curiosity but with love for God's kingdom, compassion for human beings, and the intent to turn what you learn into prayers and praises. #Quote by Matthew Henry
Human Beings quotes by Gwyneth Paltrow
#3. We're human beings and the sun is the sun-how can it be bad for you? I don't think anything that's natural can be bad for you #Quote by Gwyneth Paltrow
Human Beings quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#4. After all, all human beings are the same - made up of flesh, bone, and blood. We all want happiness, and we all try to avoid suffering. We are the members of one single human family, and our arguments are born from secondary causes. Disputes, lies, and killings are useless. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Human Beings quotes by Ignacy Jan Paderewski
#5. Piano playing is more difficult than statesmanship. It is harder to awake emotions in ivory keys than it is in human beings. #Quote by Ignacy Jan Paderewski
Human Beings quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#6. Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility - these three forces are the very nerve of education. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Human Beings quotes by Samuel Johnson
#7. Every human being whose mind is not debauched, will be willing to give all that he has to get knowledge. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Human Beings quotes by Marcel Proust
#8. The sea thus enchants us like music, which, unlike language, never bears the traces of things, never tells us anything about human beings, but imitates the stirrings of the soul. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Human Beings quotes by Jo Brand
#9. I cannot abide anyone treating another human being like a piece of dirt, whatever the context. #Quote by Jo Brand
Human Beings quotes by Robert Fulghum
#10. There is a tree. At the downhill edge of a long, narrow field in the western foothills of the La Sal Mountains -- southeastern Utah. A particular tree. A juniper. Large for its species -- maybe twenty feet tall and two feet in diameter. For perhaps three hundred years this tree has stood its ground. Flourishing in good seasons, and holding on in bad times. "Beautiful" is not a word that comes to mind when one first sees it. No naturalist would photograph it as exemplary of its kind. Twisted by wind, split and charred by lightning, scarred by brushfires, chewed on by insects, and pecked by birds. Human beings have stripped long strings of bark from its trunk, stapled barbed wire to it in using it as a corner post for a fence line, and nailed signs on it on three sides: NO HUNTING; NO TRESPASSING; PLEASE CLOSE THE GATE. In commandeering this tree as a corner stake for claims of rights and property, miners and ranchers have hacked signs and symbols in its bark, and left Day-Glo orange survey tape tied to its branches. Now it serves as one side of a gate between an alfalfa field and open range. No matter what, in drought, flood heat and cold, it has continued. There is rot and death in it near the ground. But at the greening tips of its upper branches and in its berrylike seed cones, there is yet the outreach of life.

I respect this old juniper tree. For its age, yes. And for its steadfastness in taking whatever is thrown at it. That it has been useful in a practical #Quote by Robert Fulghum
Human Beings quotes by Josh Kaufman
#11. Here's a curious fact about human beings: we have a really hard time realizing that something isn't there. #Quote by Josh Kaufman
Human Beings quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#12. 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
Human Beings quotes by M. Scott Peck
#13. Human beings are poor examiners, subject to superstition, bias, prejudice, and a PROFOUND tendency to see what they want to see rather than what is really there. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Human Beings quotes by Kevin McCloud
#14. Every breath we take as human beings damages the planet. #Quote by Kevin McCloud
Human Beings quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#15. In the depths of his soul Ivan Ilyich knew that he was dying ... he simply did not, he could not possibly understand it. The example of a syllogism he had studied in Kiesewetter's logic - Caius is a man, men are mortal, therefore Caius is mortal
had seemed to him all his life to be correct only in relation to Caius, but by no means himself. For the man Caius, man in general, it was perfectly correct; but he was not Caius and not man in general, he had always been quite, quite separate from all other human beings ... And Caius is indeed mortal, and it's right that he die, but for me, Vanya, Ivan Ilyich, with all my feelings and thoughts
for me it's another matter. And it cannot be that I should die. It would be too terrible.
So it felt to him. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Human Beings quotes by Fred Singer
#16. I am persuaded to think that any climate change is bad because of the investments and adaptations that have been made by human beings and all of the things that support human existence upon this globe. Even minor fluctuations of climate could change the distribution of fish, ... upset agriculture, ... and inundate costal cities ... ... Such changes could occur at a faster rate perhaps than human society can evolve. #Quote by Fred Singer
Human Beings quotes by Zadie Smith
#17. You become a different writer when you approach a short story. When things are not always having to represent other things, you find real human beings begin to cautiously appear on your pages. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Human Beings quotes by Michael Crichton
#18. My own sense is that the acquisition of self knowledge has been made difficult by the modern world. More and more human beings live in vast urban environments, surrounded by other human beings and the creations of human beings. The natural world, the traditional source of self-awareness, is increasingly absent. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Human Beings quotes by Elif Shafak
#19. Was it really better for human beings to discover more of their pasts? And then more and more ... ? Or was it simply better to know as little of the past as possible and even to forget what small amount was remembered? #Quote by Elif Shafak
Human Beings quotes by Laurens Van Der Post
#20. Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right. #Quote by Laurens Van Der Post
Human Beings quotes by Edwin O'Connor
#21. I've often thought that among all the afflicting sights of the world, none can be much more so than this one short walk along three city blocks, where night after night it's possible to see--indeed, it's impossible not to see--these faces from which hope and joy and dignity and light have been draining so steadily and for so long that now there is nothing left but this assortment of indifferent, damaged masks. They belong to human beings who, after a lifetime of struggling to become one thing or another, have succeeded only in becoming the rough sketches of their species, recognizable but empty, the bruised and wretched bodies and souls of the saddest people on earth: the people who no longer care. #Quote by Edwin O'Connor
Human Beings quotes by Laura Riding
#22. Spiritually, the society we have is the society of men with women present only in adjunctive relation to them, not the society of men and women in reciprocal relation. We do not have the society of human beings. #Quote by Laura Riding
Human Beings quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#23. I beg you to see this in the right light, and to combine it with the feeling about what happened through the Mystery of Golgotha, in which his actual sacrifice consisted: namely in leaving the spiritual spheres in order to live with the earth and the human beings on the earth and to consolidate the impulse he gave for further human evolution on earth. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Human Beings quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#24. Whoever that came up with the idea of people having to have 'a dream' sure knew how to keep these creatures called human beings preoccupied. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Human Beings quotes by Bertrand Russell
#25. Most human beings, though in varying degrees, desire to control, not only their own lives but also the lives of others #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Human Beings quotes by Steven Pinker
#26. Morality is not just any old topic in psychology but close to our conception of the meaning of life. Moral goodness is what gives each of us the sense that we are worthy human beings. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Human Beings quotes by Terry Pratchett
Human Beings quotes by Karen Armstrong
#28. Where Ibn al-Arabi had written for the intellectual, Rumi was summoning all human beings to live beyond themselves, and to transcend the routines of daily life. The Mathnawi celebrated the Sufi lifestyle which can make everyone an indomitable hero of a battle waged perpetually in the cosmos and within the soul. The Mongol invasions had led to a mystical movement, which helped people come to terms with the catastrophe they had experienced at the deeper levels of the psyche, and Rumi was its greatest luminary and exemplar. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Human Beings quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#29. If there is heaven, atheists will be the first to put their foot there; they take time to find God personally. They risk losing everything when they decide He does not exist. While believers will swallow anything you throw at them to protect their own self-interests to get to heaven at all cost, atheists want a real God and I believe God will not disappoint such a genuine breed of human beings. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Human Beings quotes by N. T. Wright
#30. The day the church can no longer say, "We must obey God rather than human beings" (Acts 5:29), it ceases to be the church. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Human Beings quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#31. Genius
the free and harmonious play of all the faculties of a human being. #Quote by Amos Bronson Alcott
Human Beings quotes by Atul Gawande
#32. We are all plagued by failures - by missed subtleties, overlooked knowledge, and outright errors. For the most part, we have imagined that little can be done beyond working harder and harder to catch the problems clean up after them. We are not in the habit of thinking the way the army pilots did as they looked upon their shiny new Model 299 bomber - a machine so complex no one was sure human beings could try it. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Human Beings quotes by Marion Woodman
#33. We all experience 'soul moments' in life-when we see a magnificent sunrise, hear the call of the loon, see the wrinkles in our mother's hands, or smell the sweetness of a baby. During these moments, our body, as well as our brain, resonates as we experience the glory of being a human being. #Quote by Marion Woodman
Human Beings quotes by Carrie Fisher
#34. I envy people who have the capacity to sit with another human being and find them endlessly interesting, I would rather watch TV. Of course this becomes eventually known to the other person. #Quote by Carrie Fisher
Human Beings quotes by Whitfield Diffie
#35. I think, and I've thought this for a long time, that we live, roughly speaking, in the last generation of human beings. #Quote by Whitfield Diffie
Human Beings quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#36. What a still, hot, perfect day! What a golden desert this spreading moor! Everywhere sunshine. I wished I could live in it and on it. I saw a lizard run over the crag; I saw a bee busy among the sweet bilberries. I would fain at the moment have become bee or lizard, that I might have found fitting nutriment, permanent shelter here. But I was a human being, and had a human being's wants. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Human Beings quotes by Ilona Andrews
#37. For example, the first time Aunt B came to the Pack Council, he took it upon himself to lecture her about how men should be men and women should be women, and Clan alphas should be men with women helping them, not the other way around."

I laughed. "What did she do?"

"She patted his shoulder and said, 'Bless your heart, you must be awful in bed.'"


"Then she turned to Martha and told her that if she ever was in need of a man who respected women enough to think they were human beings she had several available in her clan."

That sounded like Aunt B.

"Mahon turned purple and didn't say another word through the whole Council meeting. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Human Beings quotes by Amanda Lovelace
#38. a
where all

shouldn't be called

a "revolutionary"
way of life

& yet
it is.

-burn #Quote by Amanda Lovelace
Human Beings quotes by Robin Sharma
#39. Behave like the human being you wish all would be #Quote by Robin Sharma
Human Beings quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#40. Only those who decline to scramble up the career ladder are interesting as human beings. Nothing is more boring than a man with a career. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Human Beings quotes by Russell M. Nelson
#41. ...[S]o many people look only to their bank balance for peace or to fellow human beings for models to follow. Clinicians, academicians, and politicians are often put to a test of faith. In pursuit of their goals, will their religion show or will it be hidden? Are they tied back to God or to man? I had such a test decades ago when one of my medical faculty colleagues chastised me for failing to separate my professional knowledge from my religious convictions. He demanded that I not combine the two. How could I do that? Truth is truth! It is not divisible, and any part of it cannot be set aside. Whether truth emerges from a scientific laboratory or through revelation, all truth emanates from God. #Quote by Russell M. Nelson
Human Beings quotes by Isaac Asimov
#42. I have made a discovery,' said Giskard, his voice carrying no shade of emotion. 'I have made it because, for the first time in my existence, I faced thousands of human beings. Had I done this two centuries ago, I would have made the discovery then. Had I never faced so many at once, then I would never have made the discovery at all.
'Consider, then, how many vital points I might easily grasp, but never have and never will, simply because the proper conditions for it will never come my way. I remain ignorant except where circumstance helps me, and I cannot count on circumstance. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Human Beings quotes by Sebastian Faulks
#43. What I like in novels that I read and enjoy is interplay of theme: the mystery of how we seem to be so separate as human beings. #Quote by Sebastian Faulks
Human Beings quotes by Eudora Welty
#44. Fantasy is no good unless the seed it springs from is a truth, a truth about human beings. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Human Beings quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#45. In terms of the real quality of a human being, only when suffering comes, when pain comes, does a man stand up as a human being. You can see great human beings surface only when the society is really suffering. When India was under the oppression of British rulers, how many wonderful people stood up? Where are they now? They have just fallen back into their comforts, that's all. All those Ghandis, Patels, Tilaks are still there, but they're dormant. When pain came, they all became alive. They left everything behind and stood up as giants. Where are they now? This is the human misfortune that still there's not enough intelligence in the world that human beings will rise to their peaks when everything is well. They wait for calamities. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Human Beings quotes by Sara Miles
#46. Repentance means turning toward other human beings, our own flesh and blood, whenever they're oppressed, hungry, or imprisoned; it means acting with compassion instead of indifference. #Quote by Sara Miles
Human Beings quotes by Gloria Reuben
#47. How can we teach our children to be responsible beyond themselves and care for other human beings' welfare and for the welfare of the planet and all that it contains? It's a difficult lesson to convey, when, more than 20 years after the Exxon Valdez disaster, Prince William Sound is still experiencing the damaging effects. #Quote by Gloria Reuben
Human Beings quotes by Dean Koontz
#48. Maybe the devil in human beings isn't the reflection of the devil, perhaps the devil is only a reflection of the savagery and brutality of our kind. Maybe what we've done is create the devil in our own image #Quote by Dean Koontz
Human Beings quotes by Tom Bissell
#49. An artist can respect the backfield of fact before which every human being stands and choose not to address those facts. #Quote by Tom Bissell
Human Beings quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#50. The willingness to challenge hardships taps the power within human beings to transform even a place of tragedy into a stage for fulfilling one's mission. #Quote by Daisaku Ikeda
Human Beings quotes by Hendrik Willem Van Loon
#51. What poor, deluded fools these human beings are! Won't they ever learn? Of course, today they seem to do everything at a much faster rate of speed than we did in our day. They get born faster. They live faster. They eat faster. They burn out faster. But what do they gain? And you tell me that all of them can now read and write! But what do they read and what do they write? And are they any better at living in peace with each other than we were? Do they love each other any the better? Let me put it even more simply. Do they treat each other with any greater decency and tolerance than we did in our own time, when we were forever slaughtering each other for some opinion which was mere guesswork and probably always would remain so, and yet caused one half of humanity to send the other half to the gallows and the stake - and for what?...I am sorry, but even today, I don't quite know for what! #Quote by Hendrik Willem Van Loon
Human Beings quotes by Robert Peate
#52. You have been lied to. You were born into a system you did not create, though it was created by human beings. You were told that if you worked hard, dreamed big, and played by the rules, you could make it as well as anybody else. That was a lie, the fact that 'dreaming big' and 'playing by the rules' don't go together aside. #Quote by Robert Peate
Human Beings quotes by Bill Moyers
#53. I have seen hate born of fear, hate speaking in the name of God and truth, hate holding up a distorting mirror to fellow human beings. #Quote by Bill Moyers
Human Beings quotes by Mike Norton
#54. Never say that you can't do something, or that something seems impossible, or that something can't be done, no matter how discouraging or harrowing it may be; human beings are limited only by what we allow ourselves to be limited by: our own minds. We are each the masters of our own reality; when we become self-aware to this: absolutely anything in the world is possible #Quote by Mike Norton
Human Beings quotes by Andre Malraux
#55. The attempt to force human beings to despise themselves is what I call hell. #Quote by Andre Malraux
Human Beings quotes by Rene Dubos
#56. Wherever human beings are concerned, trend is not destiny. #Quote by Rene Dubos
Human Beings quotes by Daniele Bolelli
#57. No matter how good the justification, I still see all the identities that divide human beings along racial or national lines as prisons. I'm not about to give artificial categories and man-made borders the right to limit my ties with other human beings and dictate what values I should or should not embrace. #Quote by Daniele Bolelli
Human Beings quotes by Brian L. Weiss
#58. As Christian mystic Pierre Teilhard de Chardin once said: "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience." He was right. If we recognize the soul lesson, we can grow beyond suffering, and there is no stress in this state of understanding. #Quote by Brian L. Weiss
Human Beings quotes by Bill Hicks
#59. I don't get along with anything, I really don't ... I'm, I'm, maybe I'm just a, you know, incredibly tasteful human being. #Quote by Bill Hicks
Human Beings quotes by Eudora Welty
#60. It was entirely taken for granted that there wasn't any lying in our family, and I was advanced in adolescence before I realized that in plenty of homes where I played with schoolmates, and went to their parties, children lied to their parents and parents lied to their children and to each other. It took me a long time to realize that these very same everyday lies, and the stratagems and jokes and tricks and dares that went with them, were in fact the basis of the scenes I so well loved to hear about and hoped for and treasured in the conversation of adults. My instinct - the dramatic instinct - was to lead me, eventually, on the right track for a storyteller: the scene was full of hints, pointers, suggestions, and promises of things to find out and know about human beings.I had to grow up and learn to listen for the unspoken as well as the spoken - and to know a truth, I also had to recognize a lie. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Human Beings quotes by Maya Angelou
#61. I like to speak on matters which matter to human beings, and almost everything matters to human beings. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Human Beings quotes by Susan Glaspell
#62. The biggest stories are written about the things which draw human beings closer together. #Quote by Susan Glaspell
Human Beings quotes by Christopher Morley
#63. Human beings pay very little attention to what is told them unless they know something about it already. #Quote by Christopher Morley
Human Beings quotes by Mark Van Doren
#64. There are two statements about human beings that are true: that all human beings are alike, and that all are different. On those two facts all human wisdom is founded. #Quote by Mark Van Doren
Human Beings quotes by A.C. Pontone
#65. Plato in the Symposium used to say that, at the beginning of time, human beings had four arms, four legs, and two heads. In time, they began to be insolent toward the gods, who, as punishment, separated them into two parts with a thunderbolt, creating from each primordial human being two new divided beings. As a consequence, every man tries to find his initial wholeness looking for his lost half.
He was right, more or less. I believed that even my soul was born differently. With ten arms, ten legs, and five heads. Creepy if I imagined it, but I thought it would make the idea better. #Quote by A.C. Pontone
Human Beings quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#66. The greatest fear that human beings experience is not death, which is inevitable, but consideration of the distinct possibility of living a worthless life. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Human Beings quotes by Heinrich Heine
#67. Wherever they burn books they will also, in the end, burn human beings. #Quote by Heinrich Heine
Human Beings quotes by Apol Lejano-Massebieau
#68. However, human beings are funny; we always want what we don't have. #Quote by Apol Lejano-Massebieau
Human Beings quotes by Bianca Sparacino
#69. Never forget that human beings are more than just the framework of their bodies, that they are the summation of a thousand invisible parts, moments. People come to us brimming with hope, and fear. When we truly connect with that, we turn them from ordinary strangers, into layers of rich history, just waiting to be discovered. #Quote by Bianca Sparacino
Human Beings quotes by Jack Canfield
#70. Keep in mind that part of growing up is dealing with difficult issues, and the benefits can be great if you have the courage to ask for help. Human beings are not designed to go through life alone. No one has to bear the burden of tough times all by themselves. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Human Beings quotes by Tahar Ben Jelloun
#71. The mistake we make is to attribute to religions the errors and fanaticism of human beings. #Quote by Tahar Ben Jelloun
Human Beings quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#72. The one factor that nobody can deny in life is the influence of weather; it makes demands upon human beings, every person faces its reality. Weather reminds us that the world is not composed of technological gismos and climate controlled office buildings. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Human Beings quotes by Tracy Chapman
#73. Renounce all those material things that you gained by exploiting other human beings. #Quote by Tracy Chapman
Human Beings quotes by Joyce Meyer
#74. It is amazing the quality of human beings that are in this world if we can just get past people not dressing the way we want them to dress. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Human Beings quotes by Mary MacLane
#75. I Don't Know whether lust is a human coarseness or a human fineness: I don't know why death holds a so sweet lure since it would take away my Body: I don't know that I wouldn't deny my Christ, if I had one, three times before a given cockcrow: I don't know on the other hand that I would: I don't know whether honor is a reality in human beings or a pose: I don't know that I mayn't be able to think with my Body when it is in its coffin. #Quote by Mary MacLane
Human Beings quotes by Brooke McEldowney
#76. People of religious distinction maintain that human beings exclusively possess souls, on the strength of which they may gain admittance to heaven.

Only human beings lie, devise pogroms, murder for recreation, steal, libel, slander and perform crossword puzzles. This says nothing new about the condition of being human, but it does help to illuminate the special contributions of the soul. #Quote by Brooke McEldowney
Human Beings quotes by Dalai Lama
#77. At a fundamental level, as human beings, we are all the same; each one of us aspires to happiness and each one of us does not wish to suffer. This is why, whenever I have the opportunity, I try to draw people's attention to what as members of the human family we have in common and the deeply interconnected nature of our existence and welfare. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Human Beings quotes by Anonymous
#78. O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens. 2 You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength,[*] silencing your enemies and all who oppose you. 3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers - the moon and the stars you set in place - 4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?[*] 5 Yet you made them only a little lower than God[*] and crowned them[*] with glory and honor. 6 You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority - 7 the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals, 8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents. 9 O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! #Quote by Anonymous
Human Beings quotes by Ron Kovic
#79. I have come to believe there is nothing in the lives of human beings more terrifying than war and nothing more important than for those of us who have experienced it to share its awful truth. #Quote by Ron Kovic
Human Beings quotes by Albert Einstein
#80. The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Human Beings quotes by David Dunn
#81. All human beings hunger for appreciation. #Quote by David Dunn
Human Beings quotes by Ched Myers
#82. If we are going to talk about how undocumented immigrants impact our society, we ought to first address how our national policies have disrupted their lives. Above all, solidarity with the immigrant poor should seek to know them not as statistics, but as human beings who endure extraordinary hardship and trauma in their struggle just to survive - especially since the structural causes of their impoverishment lie on our side of the border. #Quote by Ched Myers
Human Beings quotes by Carl Barks
#83. I've always looked upon the Ducks as caricature human beings. Perhaps I've been years writing in that middle world that J.R.R. Tolkien describes, and never knew it. #Quote by Carl Barks
Human Beings quotes by Laura Z. Hobson
#84. I think of myself as a plain human being who happens to be an American. #Quote by Laura Z. Hobson
Human Beings quotes by George S. Patton Jr.
#85. Human beings are made up of flesh and blood, and a miracle fiber called courage. #Quote by George S. Patton Jr.
Human Beings quotes by Erma Bombeck
#86. Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Human Beings quotes by Jacque Fresco
#87. When biological technology becomes further advanced, human beings as we know them, will become a modified species. If we as human beings fail to include the possibility of this development in our overall, social evolution we will witness the decline of our species #Quote by Jacque Fresco
Human Beings quotes by Virginia Woolf
#88. For it is a curious fact that though human beings have such imperfect means of communication, that they can only say 'good to eat' when they mean 'beautiful' and the other way about, they will yet endure ridicule and misunderstanding rather than keep any experience to themselves. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Human Beings quotes by Lynne Truss
#89. The way people behave towards each other is a measure of their value as human beings. #Quote by Lynne Truss
Human Beings quotes by Maya Angelou
#90. People whose history and future were threatened each day by extinction considered that it was only by divine intervention that they were able to live at all. I find it interesting that the meanest life, the poorest existence, is attributed to God's will, but as human beings become more affluent, as their living standard and style begin to ascend the material scale, God descends the scale of responsibility at a commensurate speed. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Human Beings quotes by Eliezer Yudkowsky
#91. When you think of intelligence, don't think of a college professor; think of human beings as opposed to chimpanzees. If you don't have human intelligence, you're not even in the game. #Quote by Eliezer Yudkowsky
Human Beings quotes by George Takei
#92. People can do great things, George. They can come up with noble, shining ideals. But people are also fallible human beings, and we know they made a terrible mistake. - Takekuma Norman Takei #Quote by George Takei
Human Beings quotes by Tomichan Matheikal
#93. The cosmos does not require God, Laplace said to himself. But Emperors require Him. All those who seek to subjugate human beings in one form or another require Him. Science does not need God. #Quote by Tomichan Matheikal
Human Beings quotes by Ali Smith
#94. It's a question of how we regard our situations, how we look and see where we are, and how we choose, if we can, when we are seeing undeceivedly, not to despair and, at the same time, how best to act. Hope is exactly that, that's all it is, a mater of how we deal with the negative acts towards human beings by other human beings in the world, remembering that they and we are all human, that nothing human is alien to us, the foul and the fair, and that most important of all we're here for a mere blink of the eyes, that's all. #Quote by Ali Smith
Human Beings quotes by Ron Livingston
#95. Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day, filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about about mission statements. #Quote by Ron Livingston
Human Beings quotes by Ilka Chase
#96. In love, gallantry is necessary. Even when the first wild desire is gone, especially then, there is an inherent need for good manners and consideration, for the putting forth of effort. Two courteous and civilized human beings out of the loneliness of their souls owe that to each other. #Quote by Ilka Chase
Human Beings quotes by Haruki Murakami
#97. All of us are imperfect human beings living in an imperfect world. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Human Beings quotes by Hayley Williams
#98. The most important part about playing shows and touring, is connecting with fans. At the end of the day it's not really a band and fans, we're all just human beings. #Quote by Hayley Williams
Human Beings quotes by Robert L Faricy
#99. There are many, many angels, more than there are human beings. They stand before the throne of God and praise Him. At the same time, they are among us, with us. Angels are real. And they are here. #Quote by Robert L Faricy
Human Beings quotes by Nikolas Schreck
#100. Satanism represents opposition to hypocrisy, every human being feels rage, every human being feels anger, and we feel it is natural to express that anger in a healthy way. #Quote by Nikolas Schreck
Human Beings quotes by Anne Rice
#101. I'm speaking of the character of human beings, not what they believe in. I'm speaking of those who won't accept a useless life just because they were born to it. I mean those who would be something better. They work, they sacrifice, they do things ... "
He was moved by this, and I was a little surprised that I'd said it. Yet I felt I'd had hurt him somehow.
"There is blessedness in that." I said. "There's sanctity. And God or no God, there is goodness in it. I know this the way I know the mountains are out there, that the stars shine. #Quote by Anne Rice

Human Beings quotes by Larry Moss
#103. Acting is a spiritual quest to touch human beings. #Quote by Larry Moss
Human Beings quotes by David Shainberg
#104. Look at the nuclear arms race as a vortex arising out of the greed of human beings who are isolated in their separate selves and do not feel the connection to other human beings. They are also feeling a peculiar emptiness and become greedy for everything they can get to fill themselves. Hence nuclear industries proliferate because they provide large amounts of money and the greed is so extensive that such people do not care what might happen from their actions. #Quote by David Shainberg
Human Beings quotes by Gene Edward Veith Jr.
#105. Instead of insisting that human beings attain perfection, Lutheran spirituality begins by facing up to imperfection. We cannot perfect our conduct, try as we might. We cannot understand God through our own intellects. We cannot become one with God. Instead of human beings having to do these things, Lutheran spirituality teaches that God does them for us - He becomes one with us in Jesus Christ; He reveals Himself to our feeble understandings by His Word; He forgives our conduct and, in Christ, lives the perfect life for us. #Quote by Gene Edward Veith Jr.
Human Beings quotes by Charles Koch
#106. The way - the principle way that human beings had gotten out of extreme poverty is free trade. #Quote by Charles Koch
Human Beings quotes by Donald Woods Winnicott
#107. I would rather be the child of a mother who has all the inner conflicts of the human being than be mothered by someone for whom all is easy and smooth, who knows all the answers, and is a stranger to doubt. #Quote by Donald Woods Winnicott
Human Beings quotes by Charles Neider
#108. I was as hurt by this as if I were engaged in some honest occupation. There is nothing surprising about this. Human beings feel dishonor the most, sometimes, when they most deserve it. #Quote by Charles Neider
Human Beings quotes by Aurora Levins Morales
#109. Ownership shatters ecology. For the land to survive, for us to survive, it must cease to be property. It cannot continue to sustain us for much longer under the weight of such merciless use. We know this. We know the insatiable hunger for profit that drives that use and the dismpowerment that accommodates us. We don't yet know how to make it stop.

But where ecology meets culture there is another question. How do we hold in common not only the land, but all the fragile, tenacious rootedness of human beings to the ground of our histories, teh cultural residues of our daily work, the invidual and tribal longings for place? How do we abolish ownership of land and respect people's ties to it? How do we shift the weight of our times from the single-minded nationalist drive for a piece of territory and the increasingly barricaded self-interest of even the marginally privileged towards a rich and multilayered sense of collective heritage? I don't have the answer. But I know that only when we can hold each people's particular memories and connections with land as a common treasure can the knowledge of our place on it be restored. #Quote by Aurora Levins Morales
Human Beings quotes by Graham Greene
#110. Time has its revenges, but revenge seems so often sour. Wouldn't we all do better not trying to understand, accepting the fact that no human being will ever understand another, not a wife with a husband, nor a parent a child? Perhaps that's why men have invented God – a being capable of understanding. #Quote by Graham Greene
Human Beings quotes by Jami Attenberg
#111. We are human beings, not ants. #Quote by Jami Attenberg

Human Beings quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#113. A human being is like a seed. Either you can keep it as it is, or you can make it grow into a wonderful tree with flowers and fruits. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Human Beings quotes by Louis MacNeice
#114. It is a retrogression when human beings begin to insist on uniform, on one-mindedness, on conditioning their offspring so that all their reactions are automatic. #Quote by Louis MacNeice
Human Beings quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#115. Why is it that human beings are allowed to grow up without the necessary apparatus to make sound ethical decisions? #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Human Beings quotes by Jeff Carlson
#116. I think we're programmed for hardship. In my experience, human beings are happiest when they're working themselves to the bone. People are more likely to feel adrift and unsatisfied when they have too much leisure time. Obstacles are good. #Quote by Jeff Carlson
Human Beings quotes by Rosa Parks
#117. I don't think well of people who are prejudiced against people because of race. The only way for prejudiced people to change is for them to decide for themselves that all human beings should be treated fairly. We can't force them to think that way. #Quote by Rosa Parks
Human Beings quotes by Douglas Coupland
#118. And the reason Luke is thinking about time and free will is because he believes that money is the closest human beings have ever come to crystallizing time and free will into a compact physical form. Cash. Cash is a time crystal. Cash allows you to multiply your will, and it allows you to speed up time. Cash is what defines us as a species. Nothing else in the universe has money. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Human Beings quotes by Shailene Woodley
#119. I'm generally a very annoyingly positive person, in real life. I think that might have something to do with my gravitation towards angry human beings on screen. #Quote by Shailene Woodley

#120. Gratitude is present when you see that everything that occurs in your life can be used to show you how to live fully as a human being. #Quote by Maria Nemeth
Human Beings quotes by Shivanshu K. Srivastava
#121. When you don't allow nature to take its course and keep interfering with its freedom and exploiting it, the repercussions are bound to happen. Freedom is the common goal which every organism strives to accomplish. #Quote by Shivanshu K. Srivastava
Human Beings quotes by John C. Bogle
#122. Rely on the ordinary virtues that intelligent, balanced human beings have relied on for centuries: common sense, thrift, realistic expectations, patience, and perseverance. #Quote by John C. Bogle
Human Beings quotes by Harlan Ellison
#123. The only thing worth writing about is people. People. Human beings. Men and women whose individuality must be created, line by line, insight by insight. If you do not do it, the story is a failure. [ ... ] There is no nobler chore in the universe than holding up the mirror of reality and turning it slightly, so we have a new and different perception of the commonplace, the everyday, the 'normal', the obvious. People are reflected in the glass. The fantasy situation into which you thrust them is the mirror itself. And what we are shown should illuminate and alter our perception of the world around us. Failing that, you have failed totally. #Quote by Harlan Ellison
Human Beings quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#124. Don't risk your life for those that doesn't love your life, lest you end up in regrets if not death. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Human Beings quotes by Harry Duran
#125. 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
Human Beings quotes by Heathcote Williams
#126. If an alien visitor were to hover a few hundred yards above the planet, it could be forgiven for thinking that cars were the dominant life form, and that human beings were a kind of ambulatory fuel cell: injected when the car wished to move off, and ejected when they were spent. #Quote by Heathcote Williams
Human Beings quotes by Anne Rice
#127. I'm now privy to a great truth. Our souls, the souls we believe to be part and parcel of our bodies, are immortal, and those souls follow their own path. I possess a soul that once belonged to another, and after I die, that soul will travel on. Most human beings live and die without ever having such a great truth revealed to them. But it has been revealed to me. #Quote by Anne Rice
Human Beings quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#128. All human beings are very creative - full of potential, full of energy ... So, money kind of allows them to express it ... And if you're successful, you can take more money. You can expand your capacity, reach next level of capacity, and so on. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Human Beings quotes by Anne Rice
#129. She had no idea, really, what it meant to see a man's arm ripped out by the root, to see a head torn off a neck. She had no idea. We human beings live perpetually insulated from the horrors that happen all around us. No matter what she'd suffered, she had not witnessed the vicious ugliness of that kind of death. No, it had to be unreal to her, even Laura who had endured so much. #Quote by Anne Rice
Human Beings quotes by Fisher Stevens
#130. Human beings. People's stories. That's really what gets me excited. #Quote by Fisher Stevens
Human Beings quotes by Jody Hedlund
#131. They're savages." "They're young boys, human beings - in need of your kindness and goodwill." "And I am showing them kindness, in the kitchen." Eli shook his head in frustration. Why were his supporters willing to throw their money at missions but not willing to truly love the people they were bent on saving? #Quote by Jody Hedlund
Human Beings quotes by Mitt Romney
#132. Corporations are people, my friend ... of course they are. Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People's pockets. Human beings, my friend. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Human Beings quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#133. We write out of our humanity by writing through our direct experience. That which is most personal is most general, which becomes both our insight and protection as a writers. This is our authority as women, as human beings. #Quote by Terry Tempest Williams
Human Beings quotes by Alice Walker
#134. To me war is something to be outgrown, recognized as immature, wasteful, and so destructive to life that human beings should shun it ... as they once shunned bubonic plague. #Quote by Alice Walker
Human Beings quotes by Napoleon Hill
#135. Without doubt, the most common weakness of all human beings is the habit of leaving their minds open to the negative influence of other people. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Human Beings quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#136. Every wild apple shrub excites our expectation thus, somewhat as every wild child. It is, perhaps, a prince in disguise. What a lesson to man! So are human beings, referred to the highest standard, the celestial fruit which they suggest and aspire to bear, browsed on by fate; and only the most persistent and strongest genius defends itself and prevails, sends a tender scion upward at last, and drops its perfect fruit on the ungrateful earth. Poets and philosophers and statesmen thus spring up in the country pastures, and outlast the hosts of unoriginal men. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Human Beings quotes by Alice Hoffman
#137. People say there's the Angel of Life and the Angel of Death, but there's another one, too. The one who walks among us.'
He could tell that she was listening.
'He's nothing fierce or terrible or filled with light. He's like us, sometimes we can't even tell him apart. Sometimes we're the ones who try to save him. He's there to show us who we are. Human beings aren't Gods. We make mistakes. #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Human Beings quotes by Osamu Dazai
#138. I never could think of prostitutes as human beings or even as women. They seemed more like imbeciles or lunatics. But in their arms I felt absolute security. I could sleep soundly. It was pathetic how utterly devoid of greed they really were. And perhaps because they felt for me something like an affinity for their kind, these prostitutes always showed me a natural friendliness which never became oppressive. Friendliness with no ulterior motive, friendliness stripped of high-pressure salesmanship, for someone who might never come again. Some nights I saw these imbecile, lunatic prostitutes with the halo of Mary. #Quote by Osamu Dazai
Human Beings quotes by Margaret Chase Smith
#139. Every human being is entitled to courtesy and consideration. Constructive criticism is not only to be expected but sought. #Quote by Margaret Chase Smith
Human Beings quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
#140. Individual human beings are so subtly developed through the centuries that it is strictly impermissible to compare any two men who are not contemporaries-that is to say are taken from two quite different times. #Quote by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Human Beings quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#141. Like many human beings, he took the least sign of conversation as his cue to make noise. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Human Beings quotes by Jane McGonigal
#142. During this kind of highly structured, self-motivated hard work, Csikszentmihalyi wrote, we regularly achieve the greatest form of happiness available to human beings: intense, optimistic engagement with the world around us. We feel fully alive, full of potential and purpose
in other words, we are completely activated as human beings. #Quote by Jane McGonigal
Human Beings quotes by H.G.Wells
#143. Marriage isn't what it was. It's become a different thing because women have become human beings. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Human Beings quotes by Dalai Lama
#144. I believe all religions pursue the same goals, that of cultivating human goodness and bringing happiness to all human beings. Though the means may appear different, the ends are the same. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Human Beings quotes by Katherine Soh
#145. In its basic form, nursing can be seen as a duty, but beyond the incessant operational activities that lay the foundation of our daily work, the profession is all about grace. Helping people is a noble calling. It is a privilege to serve my fellow human beings. Fifteen years has seen many ups and downs at the workplace, but I have enjoyed serving the many patients who come into my care, and have prayed for the souls of those who were on the brink of death. #Quote by Katherine Soh
Human Beings quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#146. And so we realize that human beings have to be transformed and have to enter into a higher state of awareness, through inner transformation. This has to be the last breakthrough of our evolution, which is a living process. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Human Beings quotes by Irving Stone
#147. To try to understand another human being, to grapple for his ultimate depths, that is the most dangerous of human endeavors. #Quote by Irving Stone
Human Beings quotes by David Brooks
#148. Many of these policies were proposed by wonks who are comfortable only with traits and correlations that can be measured and quantified. They were passed through legislative committees that are as capable of speaking about the deep wellsprings of human action as they are of speaking in ancient Aramaic. They were executed by officials that have only the most superficial grasp of what is immovable and bent about human beings. So of course they failed. And they will continue to fail unless the new knowledge about our true makeup is integrated more fully into the world of public policy, unless the enchanted story is told along with the prosaic one. #Quote by David Brooks
Human Beings quotes by Agnes Macphail
#149. Do not rely completely on any other human being, however dear. We meet all life's greatest tests alone. #Quote by Agnes Macphail
Human Beings quotes by Abbas Kiarostami
#150. All the different nations in the world, despite their differences of appearance and religion and language and way of life, still have one thing in common, and that is what's inside of all of us. If we X-rayed the insides of different human beings, we wouldn't be able to tell from those X-rays what the person's language or background or race is. #Quote by Abbas Kiarostami
Human Beings quotes by Mengistu Haile Mariam
#151. Mengistu is a barbaric and cruel creature who becomes happy with the death of human beings. #Quote by Mengistu Haile Mariam
Human Beings quotes by Katherine Anne Porter
#152. Lovemaking surely must be, for human beings at our present state of development, one of the more private enterprises. Who would want a witness to that entire self-abandonment and helplessness? #Quote by Katherine Anne Porter
Human Beings quotes by Anna Mae Aquash
#153. I'm Indian all the way and always will be. I'm not going to stop fighting until I die, and I hope I'm a good example of a human being and of my tribe. #Quote by Anna Mae Aquash
Human Beings quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#154. Making it" in whatever field is only meaningful as long as there are thousands or millions of others who don't make it, so you need other human beings to "fail" so that your life can have meaning. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Human Beings quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#155. Most human beings live like a bird in a cage whose door was blown away. Out of habit, too busy gold-plating the cage, they do not soar to the ultimate possibility. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Human Beings quotes by Halle Berry
#156. The times may have changed, but the people are still the same. We're still looking for love, and that will always be our struggle as human beings. #Quote by Halle Berry
Human Beings quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#157. The human being, creature of eyes, needs the image. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Human Beings quotes by Rollo May
#158. In its extreme form, this fear of losing one's orientation is the fear of psychosis. When persons actually are on the brink of psychosis, they often have an urgent need to seek out some contact with other human beings. #Quote by Rollo May
Human Beings quotes by Clive Barker
#159. Often people who are wonderful with animals aren't always terribly good with human beings. #Quote by Clive Barker
Human Beings quotes by Gabor Mate
#160. There is no addiction centre in the brain, no circuits designated strictly for addictive purposes. The brain systems involved in addiction are among the key organizers and motivators of human emotional life and behaviour; hence, addiction's powerful hold on human beings. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Human Beings quotes by Kristian Goldmund Aumann
#161. Where God resides; there are no human beings. #Quote by Kristian Goldmund Aumann
Human Beings quotes by Tzvetan Todorov
#162. Every individual is multicultural; cultures are not monolithic islands but criss-crossed alluvial plains. Individual identity stems from the encounter of multiple collective identities within one and the same person; each of our various affiliations contributes to the formation of the unique creature that we are. Human beings are not all similar, or entirely different; they are all plural within themselves, and share their constitutive traits with very varied groups, combining them in an individual way. The cohabitation of different types of belonging within each one of us does not in general cause any problems- and this ought , in turn, to arouse admiration: like a juggler, we keep all the balls of our identity in the air at once, with the greatest ease!
Individual identity results from the interweaving of several collective identities; it is not alone in this respect. What is the origin of the culture of a human group? The reply- paradoxically- is that it comes from previous cultures. A new culture arises from the encounter between several smaller cultures, or from the decomposition of a bigger culture, or from interaction with neighboring culture. There is never a human life prior to the advent of culture. #Quote by Tzvetan Todorov
Human Beings quotes by Denis Diderot
#163. Man was born to live with his fellow human beings. Separate him, isolate him, his character will go bad, a thousand ridiculous affects will invade his heart, extravagant thoughts will germinate in his brain, like thorns in an uncultivated land. #Quote by Denis Diderot
Human Beings quotes by Lionel Blue
#164. An aged rabbi, crazed with liberalism, once said to me, We Jews are just ordinary human beings. Only a bit more so! #Quote by Lionel Blue
Human Beings quotes by Plato

#166. Human beings create more than they destroy. #Quote by Julian Simon
Human Beings quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#167. We didn't have another choice but to do what we did, if we wanted to be accepted, because we weren't counted as human beings. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Human Beings quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#168. What is wrong with us human beings, and has been wrong since time immemorial, is that without ever stating it in so many words, we believe that we have entered the realm of immortality. We behave as if we are never going to die - an infantile arrogance. But even more injurious than this sense of immortality is what comes with it : the sense that we can engulf this inconcievable universe with our minds. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Human Beings quotes by Julian Huxley
#169. We are beginning to realize that even the most fortunate people are living far below capacity, and that most human beings develop not more than a small fraction of their potential mental and spiritual efficiency. The human race, in fact, is surrounded by a large area of unrealized possibilities, a challenge to the spirit of exploration. #Quote by Julian Huxley
Human Beings quotes by Patricia Arquette
#170. Throughout history, the human species has struggled to some extent. It's part of us, as human beings, to provide better for our children and to try to do all these different things. The expectations have changed drastically, and thank God they have. Women have more rights, and women do have their own power in the world. #Quote by Patricia Arquette
Human Beings quotes by Gertrude Stein
#171. When they are alone they want to be with others, and when they are with others they want to be alone. After all, human beings are like that. #Quote by Gertrude Stein
Human Beings quotes by Wildbow
#172. A chronic failing of human beings, that we so rarely looked up. #Quote by Wildbow
Human Beings quotes by Byron Katie
#173. Hurt feelings or discomfort of any kind cannot be caused by another person. No one outside me can hurt me. That's not a possibility. It's only when I believe a stressful thought that I get hurt. And I'm the one who's hurting me by believing what I think. This is very good news, because it means that I don't have to get someone else to stop hurting me. I'm the one who can stop hurting me. It's within my power.
What we are doing with inquiry is meeting our thoughts with some simple understanding, finally. Pain, anger, and frustration will let us know when it's time to inquire. We either believe what we think or we question it: there's no other choice. Questioning our thoughts is the kinder way. Inquiry always leaves us as more loving human beings. #Quote by Byron Katie
Human Beings quotes by Lupita Nyong'o
#174. We, as human beings, have the capacity for extreme cruelty. #Quote by Lupita Nyong'o
Human Beings quotes by Mildred Cable
#175. In the desert the detachment of life from all normal intercourse imparts a sense of gravity to every rencontre, and each touch with human beings is fraught with a significance lacking in the too hurried intercourse of ordinary everyday life. On the desert track, there is no such thing as a casual meeting ... #Quote by Mildred Cable
Human Beings quotes by Beau Willimon
#176. The way I see politics is, I don't think it's cynical to accept the fact politicians are human beings, that they're flawed, and they represent the best and the worst of us. #Quote by Beau Willimon
Human Beings quotes by Adrian Wooldridge
#177. Peter Drucker once noted that "no institution can possibly survive if it needs geniuses or supermen to manage it. It must be organized in such a way as to be able to get along under the leadership of perfectly normal human beings." Warren Buffet made the same point more pithily: "I only invest in companies which any fool can run, because some day some fool will run it. #Quote by Adrian Wooldridge
Human Beings quotes by Lyndon LaRouche
#178. The ruling British elite are like animals
not only in their morality, but in their outlook on knowledge. They are clever animals, who are masters of the wicked nature of their own species, and recognize ferally the distinctions of the hated human species. Nonetheless, obsessively dedicated to being such animals, they can not [sic] assimilate those qualities unique to true human beings. #Quote by Lyndon LaRouche
Human Beings quotes by Gloria Steinem
#179. human beings have an almost infinite capacity for adapting to the expectations around #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Human Beings quotes by Reg Darling
#180. How did the muskrat discover our composter in the first place? Chased there by a predator scare, a waft of citrus scent carried to the creek by the evening thermal, or some adventurous urge to journey beyond the safety of the creek? The latter, admittedly anthropomorphic possibility appeals to me. While it's important not to get so far into such projections of human qualities into non-human realities that they begin to masquerade as fact, it's equally important to recognize that they provide openings for affection not unlike those that enable our affections for fellow human beings. Drawn into closer observation of the small details of muskrat behavior, the hand-like deftness of their front paws, their cat-like grooming, the contrast between their nervousness on land and their confident ease in the water, I quickly realized that I'd been observing more than one, perhaps several, individuals. I looked upon them with growing affection, with friendship. #Quote by Reg Darling
Human Beings quotes by Mark Vonnegut
#181. As well as being one of the worst things that can happen to a human being, schizophrenia can also be one of the richest learning and humanizing experiences life offers. #Quote by Mark Vonnegut
Human Beings quotes by Cantinflas
#182. The first obligation of all human beings is to be happy. The second obligation, is to make others happy. #Quote by Cantinflas
Human Beings quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#183. In so far as the culture industry arouses a feeling of well-being that the world is precisely in that order suggested by the culture industry, the substitute gratification which it prepares for human beings cheats them out of the same happiness which it deceitfully projects. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Human Beings quotes by Terry Eagleton
#184. We like to think of individuals as unique. Yet if this is true of everyone, then we all share the same quality, namely our uniqueness. What we have in common is the fact that we are all uncommon. Everybody is special, which means that nobody is. The truth, however, is that human beings are uncommon only up to a point. There are no qualities that are peculiar to one person alone. Regrettably, there could not be a world in which only one individual was irascible, vindictive or lethally aggressive. This is because human beings are not fundamentally all that different from each other, a truth postmodernists are reluctant to concede. We share an enormous amount in common simply by virtue of being human, and this is revealed by the vocabularies we have for discussing human character. We even share the social processes by which we come to individuate ourselves. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Human Beings quotes by Glenn Gould
#185. I don't know what the effective ratio would be, but I've always had some sort of intuition that for every hour you spend in the company of other human beings, you need "x" number of hours alone. Now, what "x" represents I don't really know; it might be two and seven-eighths or seven and two-eighths, but it is a substantial ratio. #Quote by Glenn Gould
Human Beings quotes by Daniel H. Wilson
#186. We've been co-evolving with our technology for a hundred thousand years. Human beings and the technology we make were always inseparable. We're finally coming into this moment where it's coming inside our body for the first time in history. #Quote by Daniel H. Wilson
Human Beings quotes by Miguel Angel Ruiz
#187. Your best changes from moment to moment, sick or well, tired or rested. Remember that you are an imperfect human being. There is no value to judging yourself for #Quote by Miguel Angel Ruiz

#188. Human beings should not judge other lives but they can read others mind to help their pain and sufferings. #Quote by Santosh Kalwar
Human Beings quotes by Lupita Nyong'o
#189. As human beings, what makes us able to empathize with people is a connection that is not necessarily understood mentally. #Quote by Lupita Nyong'o
Human Beings quotes by Eve Babitz
#190. It made her question why human beings always appeared to be coming along so nicely as a whole when the bottom would fall out once again and they began collecting ears and filings from each other's heads. #Quote by Eve Babitz
Human Beings quotes by Karen Armstrong
#191. When they have contemplated the world, human beings have always experienced a transcendence and mystery at the heart of existence. They have felt that it is deeply connected with themselves and with the natural world, but that it also goes beyond. However we choose to define it - it has been called God, Brahman, or Nirvana - this transcendence has been a fact of human life. We have all experienced something similar, whatever our theological opinions, when we listen to a great piece of music or hear a beautiful poem and feel touched within and lifted, momentarily, beyond ourselves. We tend to seek out this experience, and if we do not find it in one setting - in a church or synagogue, for example - we would look elsewhere. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Human Beings quotes by Isaac Asimov
#192. She's qualified all right. She understands robots like a sister - comes from hating human beings so much, I think. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Human Beings quotes by Delmore Schwartz
#193. What was the freedom to which the adult human being rose in the morning, if each act was held back or inspired by the overpowering ghost of a little child? #Quote by Delmore Schwartz
Human Beings quotes by Austin Bradford Hill
#194. The statistical method is required in the interpretation of figures which are at the mercy of numerous influences, and its object is to determine whether individual influences can be isolated and their effects measured. The essence of the method lies in the determination that we are really comparing like with like, and that we have not overlooked a relevant factor which is present in Group A and absent from Group B. The variability of human beings in their illnesses and in their reactions to them is a fundamental reason for the planned clinical trial and not against it. #Quote by Austin Bradford Hill
Human Beings quotes by Victoria Gray Adams
#195. If I was an exceptional human being in Detroit, then I saw no reason why I couldn't be an exceptional human being in Mississippi. In Hattiesburg. #Quote by Victoria Gray Adams
Human Beings quotes by Nick Hornby
#196. Actually, I can see one advantage to the Western way of thinking, which is that if someone has a name, you know what to call them, don't you? It's only one small advantage, and there are millions of big disadvantages, including the biggest one of all, which is that names are really fascist and don't allow us to express ourselves as human beings, and turn us into one thing. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Human Beings quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#197. Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he loves him. By his love he is enabled to see the essential traits and features in the beloved person; and even more, he sees that which is potential in him, which is not yet actualized but yet ought to be actualized. Furthermore, by his love, the loving person enables the beloved person to actualize these potentialities. By making him aware of what he can be and of what he should become, he makes these potentialities come true. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Human Beings quotes by John Michael Greer
#198. Science, at its core, is simply a method of practical logic that tests hypotheses against experience. Scientism, by contrast, is the worldview and value system that insists that the questions the scientific method can answer are the most important questions human beings can ask, and that the picture of the world yielded by science is a better approximation to reality than any other. #Quote by John Michael Greer
Human Beings quotes by Dan Gilbert
#199. The bottom line is, time is a powerful force. It transforms our preferences. It reshapes our values. It alters our personalities. We seem to appreciate this fact, but only in retrospect. Only when we look backwards do we realize how much change happens in a decade. It's as if, for most of us, the present is a magic time. It's a watershed on the timeline. It's the moment at which we finally become ourselves. Human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they're finished. The person you are right now is as transient, as fleeting and as temporary as all the people you've ever been. The one constant in our life is change. #Quote by Dan Gilbert
Human Beings quotes by Henrietta Newton Martin
#200. Choose to see the 'good' in a person rather than pondering over the 'bad' ;human beings are but fallible.... #Quote by Henrietta Newton Martin
Human Beings quotes by Kathleen Winter
#201. It was not fair, she felt, to treat people as if they were finished beings. Everyone was always becoming and unbecoming. #Quote by Kathleen Winter
Human Beings quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#202. We are only chance visitants to this jungle of blind mutations. The natural world existed when we did not, and it will continue to exist long after we are gone. The supernatural crept into life only when the door of consciousness was opened in our heads. The moment we stepped through that door, we walked out on nature. Say what we will about it and deny it till we die
we are blighted by our knowing what is too much to know and too secret to tell one another if we are to stride along our streets, work at our jobs, and sleep in our beds. It is the knowledge of a race of beings that is only passing through this shoddy cosmos. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Human Beings quotes by Tom Clancy
#203. The human condition today is better than it's ever been, and technology is one of the reasons for that. #Quote by Tom Clancy
Human Beings quotes by Safak Pavey
#204. The government believed that adherence to authority was human nature, so the Gezi protests were a real surprise to them. After the initial moment of shock, they decided to severely punish those participating in what they called an act of disobedience to authority. #Quote by Safak Pavey
Human Beings quotes by Howard Fast
#205. There is nothing more important than being a man, just a plain, ordinary, human man. I know you think Spartacus is something more than a man. He isn't. If he were, then he wouldn't be any good at all.
There is no great mystery about Spartacus. #Quote by Howard Fast
Human Beings quotes by Albert Burneko
#206. You are not the corporation. You are the human. It is okay for the corporation to lose a small portion of what it has in terrifying overabundance (money, time, efficiency) in order to preserve what a human has that cannot ever be replaced (dignity, humanity, conscience, life). It is okay for you to prioritize your affinity with your fellow humans over your subservience to the corporation, and to imagine and broker outcomes based on this ordering of things. It is okay for the corporation to lose. It will return to its work of churning the living world into dead sand presently. #Quote by Albert Burneko
Human Beings quotes by Ken Follett
#207. World War II is the greatest drama in human history, the biggest war ever and a true battle of good and evil. I imagine writers will continue to get stories from it, and readers will continue to love them, for many more years. #Quote by Ken Follett
Human Beings quotes by Rick Santorum
#208. The question is - and this is what Barack Obama didn't want to answer - is that human life a person under the Constitution? And Barack Obama says no. Well if that person - human life is not a person, then - I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say, 'We're going to decide who are people and who are not people.' #Quote by Rick Santorum
Human Beings quotes by Nalini Singh
#209. Being isolated and alone and hurt day after day changes a person, Aden. It turns a child into . . . into a thing that isn't quite human and not quite animal. Like any trapped creature, that child will gnaw off its own limb to escape - but if that child is a Gradient 9.8 combat-grade telepath named Zaira Neve, it'll first ask if it can gnaw off its attackers' limbs instead. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Human Beings quotes by Theodore Dalrymple
#210. People with no experience of life except under communist regimes would tell me that they knew - though they were unsure how - that their life was not 'natural,' just as Winston Smith concludes that life in Airstrip One (the new name for England in 1984) was unnatural. Other ways of life might have their problems, my Albanian and Rumanian friends would say, but theirs was unique in its violation of human nature. Orwell's imaginative grasp of what it was like to live under communism seemed to them, as it does to me, to amount to genius. #Quote by Theodore Dalrymple
Human Beings quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#211. I think that we've made great moral progress in the second half of the 20th century in many respects, and particularly in relation to human rights but I think that we are losing sight of some of the values of concern for others, and self-respect and respect for others. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Human Beings quotes by Numa Denis Fustel De Coulanges
#212. History is not the accumulation of events of every kind which happened in the past. It is the science of human societies. #Quote by Numa Denis Fustel De Coulanges
Human Beings quotes by Farish A. Noor
#213. As we walk on the stage of human agency otherwise known as history, we should remember that ours are but bit-parts, to be played only momentarily before we move on. The characters may change but the paradigm remains, every generation being the inheritor of the role of Hamlet, yearning and looking for lost fathers, weary of becoming broken men themselves. #Quote by Farish A. Noor
Human Beings quotes by Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum
#214. With each new day in Africa, a gazelle wakes up knowing he must outrun the fastest lion or perish. At the same time, a lion stirs and stretches, knowing he must outrun the fastest gazelle or starve. It's no different for the human race. Whether you consider yourself a gazelle or a lion, you have to run faster than others to survive. #Quote by Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum
Human Beings quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
#215. I believe you!' the artiste exclaimed finally and extinguishes his gaze. 'I do! These eyes are not lying! How many times have I told you that your basic error consists in underestimating the significance of the human eye. Understand that the tongue can conceal the truth, but the eyes - never! A sudden question is put to you, you don't even flinch, in one second you get hold of yourself and know what you must say to conceal the truth, and you speak quite convincingly, and not a wrinkle on your face moves, but - alas - the truth which the question stirs up from the bottom of your soul leaps momentarily into your eyes, and it's all over! They see it, and you're caught! #Quote by Mikhail Bulgakov
Human Beings quotes by Idries Shah
#216. Anyone can see that an ass laden with books remains a donkey. A human being laden with the undigested results of a tussle with thoughts and books, however, still passes for wise. #Quote by Idries Shah
Human Beings quotes by James Thurber
#217. I never had a dog that showed a human fear of death. Death, to a dog, is the final unavoidable compulsion, the least ineluctable scent on a fearsome trail, but they like to face it alone, going out into the woods, among the leaves, if there are any leaves when their time comes, enduring without sentimental human distraction the Last Loneliness, which they are wise enough to know cannot be shared by anyone. #Quote by James Thurber
Human Beings quotes by Jill Shalvis
#218. Learning to sketch the nude human form is standard practice for a beginning drawing class," she said. "We always hire a nude model. Last season I did it myself." While he was adjusting to the horror of that, Lucille went on. #Quote by Jill Shalvis
Human Beings quotes by Katherine Pine
#219. Don't worry about it. He's just moody because it's been about nine months since he's gotten laid, and he thinks I'm going to get some tonight."
I almost choked on the pancakes.
Oz put his hand on his belly and looked down. "Don't make that face." He tried unsuccessfully to keep himself from laughing. "I know it's not happening. Besides, I don't you well enough yet. You could be scary."
I forced the uncooperative bite of pancake down my throat. "You think I'm scary?" I squealed. "I hope you realize this is coming from the guy who said he wasn't human. #Quote by Katherine Pine
Human Beings quotes by Mulk Raj Anand
#220. The hand of nature was stretching itself out towards him, for the tall grass on the slopes of the Bulashah Hills was in sight, and he had opened his heart to it, lifted by the cool breeze that wafted him away from the crowds, the ugliness and the noise of the outcastes' street. He looked across at the swaying loveliness before him and the little hillocks over which it spread under a sunny sky, so transcendingly blue and beautiful that he felt like standing dumb and motionless before it. He listened to the incoherent whistling of the shrubs. They were the voices he knew so well. He was glad that his friends were ahead of him and that the thrum was not broken, for the curve of his soul seemed to bend over the heights, straining to woo nature in solitude and silence. It seemed to him he would be unhappy if he heard even one human voice. His inside seemed to know that it wouldn't be soothed if there were the slightest obstruction between him and the outer world. It didn't even occur to him to ask why he had come here. He was just swamped by the merest fringe of the magnificent fields that spread before him. He had been startled into an awareness of the mystery of vegetable moods. #Quote by Mulk Raj Anand
Human Beings quotes by May Sarton
#221. I suppose I envy painters because they can meditate on form and structure, on color and light, and not concern themselves with human torment and chaos. It is restful even to imagine expression without words. #Quote by May Sarton
Human Beings quotes by Lucy Larcom
#222. Some of us must wait for the best human gifts until we come to heavenly places. Our natural desire for musical utterance is perhaps a prophecy that in a perfect world we shall all know how to sing. #Quote by Lucy Larcom
Human Beings quotes by William Kingdon Clifford
#223. It is hardly in human nature that a man should quite accurately gauge the limits of his own insight; but it is the duty of those who profit by his work to consider carefully where he may have been carried beyond it. #Quote by William Kingdon Clifford
Human Beings quotes by Carver Mead
#224. Moore's Law is really a thing about human activity, it's about vision, it's about what you're allowed to believe. Because people are really limited by their beliefs, they limit themselves by what they allow themselves to believe about what is possible. #Quote by Carver Mead
Human Beings quotes by Mae Jemison
#225. Sciences provide an understanding of a universal experience, Arts are a universal understanding of a personal experience ... they are both a part of us and a manifestation of the same thing ... the arts and sciences are avatars of human creativity #Quote by Mae Jemison
Human Beings quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#226. Cupid, you worthless bastard, I summon you to human form! (Julian)

Human Beings quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#228. I am praising that famous individualism associated with Western and American myth ... Tightly knit communities in which members look to one another for identity, and to establish meaning and value, are disabled and often dangerous, however polished their veneer ... The cult of the individual is properly aesthetic and religious. The significance of every human destiny is absolute and equal ... Only lonesomeness allows one to experience this sort of radical singularity, one's greatest dignity and privilege. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Human Beings quotes by Joshua Stone
#229. there are actually three different kinds of beings that GOD created. GOD created Archangels and Angels, GOD created the Elohim, and GOD created the Ascended Master race. These are each three unique and separate lines of evolution, which ultimately integrate and function as one at the highest level of GOD's reality. #Quote by Joshua Stone
Human Beings quotes by Pepper Winters
#230. Nothing is ever black and white, Nila. You should know that bu now. Its all how you survive the grey." -Kes #Quote by Pepper Winters
Human Beings quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#231. Life is life - whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man's own advantage. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Human Beings quotes by Heraclitus
#232. The sun is the width of a human foot. #Quote by Heraclitus
Human Beings quotes by Margaret Visser
#233. Food is "everyday"-it has to be, or we would not survive for long. But food is never just something to eat. It is something to find or hunt or cultivate first of all; for most of human history we have spent a much longer portion of our lives worrying about food, and plotting, working, and fighting to obtain it, than we have in any other pursuit. As soon as we can count on a food supply (and so take food for granted), and not a moment sooner, we start to civilize ourselves. #Quote by Margaret Visser
Human Beings quotes by Albert Einstein
#234. The really valuable thing in the pageant of human life seems to me not the political state, but the creative, sentient individual, the personality; it alone creates the noble and the sublime, while the herd as such remains dull in thought and dull in feeling. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Human Beings quotes by Bauvard
#235. The only way to tell a fable is to introduce a human. The only way to tell a proverb is to introduce your grandfather. #Quote by Bauvard
Human Beings quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#236. The most common reaction of the human mind to achievement is not satisfaction, but craving for more. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Human Beings quotes by Charles Stross
#237. Cocktail hour at the embassy consisted of lots of charming men and women in suits and LBDs drinking Buck's Fizz and being friendly to one another, and so what if half of them had gill slits and dorsal fins under the tailoring, and the embassy smelled of seaweed because it was on an officially derelict oil rig in the middle of the North Sea, and the Other Side has the technical capability to exterminate every human being within two hundred kilometers of a coastline if they think we've violated the Benthic Treaty? #Quote by Charles Stross
Human Beings quotes by Anton Chekhov
#238. They were tough and sour, but as Pushkin said, 'Dearer to us than a host of truths is an exalting illusion.' I saw a happy man, whose cherished dream had so obviously come true, who had attained his goal in life, had gotten what he wanted, who was content with his fate and with himself. For some reason there had always been something sad mixed with my thoughts about human happiness, but now, at the sight of a happy man, I was overcome by an oppressive feeling close to despair.
- Gooseberries #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Human Beings quotes by Georges Bataille
#239. Crime is a fact of the human species, a fact of that species alone, but it is above all the secret aspect, impenetrable and hidden. Crime hides, and by far the most terrifying things are those which elude us. #Quote by Georges Bataille
Human Beings quotes by Max Ernst
#240. Collage is a supersensitive and scrupulously accurate instrument, similar to a seismograph, which is able to record the exact amount of the possibility of human happiness at any period. #Quote by Max Ernst
Human Beings quotes by Edward Norton
#241. The "environmental movement" is becoming an economic movement, is joining the social justice movement, is becoming a sustainability movement. It's leaving behind the "People's Needs versus Nature's Needs" conflict in favor of making the case for environmental health as the essential underpinning of prosperous and stable human civilization. #Quote by Edward Norton
Human Beings quotes by Toba Beta
#242. I once got lost in a dark woods with no supplies.
Struggling to deal with nature, beasts and storms,
that was time when I lost my arrogance as human. #Quote by Toba Beta
Human Beings quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#243. Death is a fascinating thing. The human mind continually returns and returns to death, to mortality, immortality, damnation, salvation. Some fear death, some seek it, but it is in our human nature to wonder at the limits of human life, at least. When you are sick like this you begin to wonder too much. Death is at your shoulder, death is your shadow, your scent, your waking and dreaming companion. You cannot help, when sleep begins to touch your eyes, but to wonder: What if? What if? And in that question, there is a longing, too much like the longing of a young girl in love. The sickness occupies your every thought, breathe like a lover at your ear; the sickness stands at your shoulder in the mirror, absorbed with your body, each inch of skin and flesh, and you let it work you over, touch you with rough hands that thrill.
Nothing will ever be so close to you again. You will never find a lover so careful, so attentive, so unconditionally present and concerned only with you.
Some of us use the body to convey the things for which we cannot find words. Some of us decide to take a shortcut, decide the world is too much or too little, death is so easy, so smiling, so simple; and death is dramatic, a final fuck-you to the world. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
