Humanity quotes by Bruce Chatwin
#1. And the formation of man is the most pressing problem facing humanity. #Quote by Bruce Chatwin
Humanity quotes by William E. Burrows
#2. The question to ask is whether the risk of traveling to space is worth the benefit. The answer is an unequivocal yes, but not only for the reasons that are usually touted by the space community: the need to explore, the scientific return, and the possibility of commercial profit. The most compelling reason, a very long-term one, is the necessity of using space to protect Earth and guarantee the survival of humanity. #Quote by William E. Burrows
Humanity quotes by Dan Simmons
#3. There is no doubt that I have discovered the ultimate in stagnant human societies. The Bikura have realized the human dream of immortality and have paid for it with their humanity and their immortal souls. #Quote by Dan Simmons
Humanity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita

Humanity quotes by Azhar Sabri
#6. The true humanity is that, to do prayer for enemies too #Quote by Azhar Sabri
Humanity quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#7. the case is even stronger, and the parallel with madness is yet more strange. For it was our case against the exhaustive and logical theory of the lunatic that, right or wrong, it gradually destroyed his humanity. Now it is the charge against the main deductions of the materialist that, right or wrong, they gradually destroy his humanity; I do not mean only kindness, I mean hope, courage, poetry, initiative, all that is human. For instance, when materialism leads men to complete fatalism (as it generally does), it is quite idle to pretend that it is in any sense a liberating force. It is absurd to say that you are especially advancing freedom when you only use free thought to destroy free will. The determinists come to bind , not to loose . They may well call their law the "chain" of causation. It is the worst chain that ever fettered a human being. You may use the language of liberty, if you like, about materialistic teaching, but it is obvious that this is just as inapplicable to it as a whole as the same language when applied to a man locked up in a mad-house. You may say, if you like, that the man is free to think himself a poached egg. But it is surely a more massive and important fact that if he is a poached egg he is not free to eat, drink, sleep, walk, or smoke a cigarette. Similarly you may say, if you like, that the bold determinist speculator is free to disbelieve in the reality of the will. But it is a much more massive and important fact that he is not free to ra #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Humanity quotes by Nafisa Haji
#8. There is an old Arab Bedouin saying: I, against my brothers. I and my brothers against my cousins. I and my brothers and my cousins against the world. That is jungle law. It is the way of the world when the world is thrown into chaos. It is our job to avert that chaos, to fight against it, to resist the urge to become savage. Because the problem with such law is that if you follow it, you are always fighting against someone. #Quote by Nafisa Haji
Humanity quotes by Dr. Parag Ravikant Kaveri
#9. Believe that you did wrong and continue to work hard for not being wrong #Quote by Dr. Parag Ravikant Kaveri
Humanity quotes by Ludwig Van Beethoven
#10. In whatsoever manner it be, let me turn to God and become fruitful in good works. Nothing higher exists than to approach God more than other people and from that to extend His glory among humanity.I will place all my confidence in your eternal goodness, O God! My soul shall rejoice in Thee, immutable Being. Be my rock, my light, forever my trust. #Quote by Ludwig Van Beethoven
Humanity quotes by Barbara Pym
#11. Disliking humanity in general, she was one of those excessively tender-hearted people who are greatly moved by the troubles of complete strangers, in which she sometimes imagined herself playing a noble part. #Quote by Barbara Pym
Humanity quotes by Vaclav Havel
#12. We must come to understand the deep mutual connection or kinship between the various forms of our spirituality. We must recollect our original spiritual and moral substance, which grew out of the same essential experience of humanity. I believe that this is the only way to achieve a genuine renewal of our sense of responsibility for ourselves and for the world. And at the same time, it is the only way to achieve a deeper understanding among cultures that will enable them to work together in a truly ecumenical way to create a new order for the world. #Quote by Vaclav Havel
Humanity quotes by A.E. Samaan
#13. The term "totalitarian" was derived from Adolf Hitler's "Total State", which was a "craddle to grave" solution that sought to micro-manage all aspects of humanity. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Humanity quotes by Etienne Gilson
#14. When man subverted order he did a great deal more than merely fall away from the rationality of his nature, diminish his own humanity, which is all that he does in Aristostle's ethics, nor he did merely compromise his destiny by an error, as it happens in the Plathonic myths; he brought disorder into the divine order, and presents the unhappy spectacle of a being in revolt against Being. [...] Every time a man sins he renews this act of revolt and prefers himself to God; in thus preferring himself, he separates himself from God; and in separating himself, he deprives himself of the sole end in which he can find beatitude and by that very fact condemns himself to misery. #Quote by Etienne Gilson
Humanity quotes by Primo Levi
#15. It was the very discomfort, the blows, the cold, the thirst that kept us aloft in the void of bottomless despair, both during the journey and after. It was not the will to live, nor a conscious resignation; for few are the men capable of such resolution, and we were but a common sample of humanity. #Quote by Primo Levi
Humanity quotes by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
#16. God invented music so poor people could be happy. #Quote by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
Humanity quotes by Amit Ray
#17. To save the humanity compassionate AI is not an option but the destination. #Quote by Amit Ray
Humanity quotes by Dorothea Dix
#18. Of all the calamities to which humanity is subject, none is so dreadful as insanity ... All experience shows that insanity seasonably treated is as certainly curable as a cold or a fever. #Quote by Dorothea Dix
Humanity quotes by J. Oswald Sanders
#19. Jesus was the meeting place of eternity and time, the blending of deity and humanity, the junction of heaven and earth. #Quote by J. Oswald Sanders
Humanity quotes by Julio Alexi Genao
#20. What really matters?
people. always people.
protect yourself from people. but love some of them, also.
because that's all there is. #Quote by Julio Alexi Genao
Humanity quotes by Jeffrey Sachs
#21. The defining challenge of the 21st century will be to face the reality that humanity shares a common fate on a crowded planet. #Quote by Jeffrey Sachs
Humanity quotes by Adrienne Rich
#22. Every infant born is testimony to the intricacy and breadth of possibilities inherent in humanity. Yet from birth* in most homes and social groups, we teach children that only certain possibilities within them are livable; we teach them to hear only certain voices inside themselves, to feel only what we believe they ought to feel, to recognize only certain others as human. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Humanity quotes by Pope Francis
#23. What need does the earth have of us? #Quote by Pope Francis
Humanity quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#24. The amazing aftermath of Birmingham, the sweeping Negro Revolution, revealed to people all over the land that there are no outsiders in all these fifty states of America. When a police dog buried his fangs in the ankle of a small child in Birmingham, he buried his fangs in the ankle of every American. The bell of man's inhumanity to man does not toll for any one man. It tolls for you, for me, for all of us. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Humanity quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar
#25. When your body, mind and soul are healthy and harmonious, you will bring health and harmony to the world- not by withdrawing from the world, but by being a healthy, living organ of the body of humanity. #Quote by B.K.S. Iyengar
Humanity quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#26. 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
Humanity quotes by Miyamoto Musashi
#27. People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment ... #Quote by Miyamoto Musashi
Humanity quotes by Charlaine Harris
#28. For awhile I taped soap operas and watched them at night when I thought I might be forgetting what it was like to be human. After a while I stopped, because from the examples I saw on those shows, forgetting humanity was a good thing. #Quote by Charlaine Harris
Humanity quotes by Felix Wantang
#29. Humanity is completely consumed with the pleasures of the flesh; we have been self-programmed to lose consciousness of the soul. #Quote by Felix Wantang
Humanity quotes by Galileo Galilei
#30. In time you may discover everything that can be discovered, and still your progress will only be progress away from humanity. The distance between you and them can one day become so great that your joyous cry over some new gain could be answered by an universal shriek of horror. #Quote by Galileo Galilei
Humanity quotes by Sahara Sanders
#31. I always wished the Lord had created a humanity that doesn't have to waste so much of their precious time sleeping… and fighting different types of software bugs. #Quote by Sahara Sanders
Humanity quotes by Pranab Mukherjee
#32. India is a land of plenty inhibited by poverty; India has an enthralling, uplifting civilization that sparkles not only in our magnificent art, but also in the enormous creativity and humanity of our daily life in city and village. #Quote by Pranab Mukherjee
Humanity quotes by George Bancroft
#33. Not in vain has Lincoln lived, for he has helped to make this republic an example of justice, with no caste but the caste of humanity. #Quote by George Bancroft
Humanity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#34. Be the witness of the turning of the human universe, as you yourself become the cause of that very turn. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Humanity quotes by Frantz Fanon
#35. Once their rage explodes, they recover their lost coherence, they experience self-knowledge through reconstruction of themselves; from afar we see their war as the triumph of barbarity; but it proceeds on its own to gradually emancipate the fighter and progressively eliminates the colonial darkness inside and out. As soon as it begins it is merciless. Either one must remain terrified or become terrifying - which means surrendering to the dissociations of a fabricated life or conquering the unity of one's native soil. When the peasants lay hands on a gun, the old myths fade, and one by one the taboos are overturned: a fighter's weapon is his humanity. For in the first phase of the revolt killing is a necessity: killing a European is killing two birds with one stone, eliminating in one go oppressor and oppressed: leaving one man dead and the other man free; #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Humanity quotes by Steven Erikson
#36. As far as Gu'Rull could determine, the only virtue humans possessed was a talent for starting over, with stern resolve restored in the sudden glow of renewed optimism, in complete disregard of whatever lessons past failures might offer. And he had no choice but to acknowledge the power of that virtue. It is contingent upon collective amnesia, but as everyone knows, stupidity needs no excuse to repeat itself. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Humanity quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#37. Same eyes, different perception.
Same ears, different judgement.
Same hands, different skills.
Same feet, different destinations.
Same minds, different reasoning.
Same hearts, different feelings.
Same souls, different actions.
Same lives, different experiences. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Humanity quotes by Oriana Fallaci
#38. Alas, nothing reveals man the way war does. Nothing so accentuates in him the beauty and ugliness, the intelligence and foolishness, the brutishness and humanity, the courage and cowardice, the enigma. #Quote by Oriana Fallaci
Humanity quotes by Akshay Vasu
#39. The thing about the human race is, It turns up against everything or everyone that it loses its faith and belief on. And the saddest thing to witness is, Most of it have lost its faith towards humanity. #Quote by Akshay Vasu
Humanity quotes by Tracy Lee Simmons
#40. History and literature rebuke our self-sufficiency; that's one reason why we ought to study them. It's not so much that people of olden times were the finest exemplars of higher humanity, for they too fell short of their ideals, as must all who aspire to higher things--that's what ideals are for. It's that we have abandoned those ideals once animating our civilization, refusing to learn them anew with each generation. We have assumed their transfer to be automatic. We have not indeed jettisoned the hope and drive that keep us working for a better world (that's the good news), but we have forgotten to cultivate ourselves as individuals. #Quote by Tracy Lee Simmons
Humanity quotes by Giancarlo Esposito
#41. I feel that sometimes, holding yourself as black, saying that is your sole identity, can sometimes stand in your way of being a member of the humanity of man, being a member of the family of the divine. #Quote by Giancarlo Esposito
Humanity quotes by Neil Patrick Harris
#42. Theater for me is about enduring human truth. Special effects can be part of that, but when they obscure what is the reason we come to theater - to see reflections of our confounded humanity - the theater has lost its way. #Quote by Neil Patrick Harris
Humanity quotes by Marion Cotillard
#43. I AM VERY MOVED BY SURVIVORS. BY PEOPLE WHO KNOW HOW TO OVERCOME A HANDICAP, A SITUATION, OR ANYTHING. VISITING THE HEARTS AND SOULS OF THOSE PEOPLE TEACHES ME A LOT ABOUT HUMANS AND HUMANITY. #Quote by Marion Cotillard
Humanity quotes by Rasheed Ogunlaru
#44. Authenticity is hard to fake #Quote by Rasheed Ogunlaru
Humanity quotes by Robert Pogue Harrison
#45. Our basic human institutions - religion, matrimony, and burial, also law, language, literature, and whatever else relies on the transmission of legacy - are authored, always and from the very start, by those who cam before. The awareness of death that defines human nature is inseparable from - indeed, it arises from, our awareness that we are not self-authored, that we follow in the footsteps of the dead. . . .
Nonhuman species obey the law of vitality, but humanity in its distinctive features is through and through necrocratic. Whether we are conscious of it or not we do the will of the ancestors; their precedents are our law; we submit to their dictates, even when we rebel against them. Our diligence, hardihood, rectitude, and heroism, but also our folly, spite, rancor, and pathologies, are so many signatures of the dead on the contracts that seal our identities. We inherit their obsessions; assume their burdens; carry on their causes; promote their mentalities, ideologies, and very often their superstitions; and often we die trying to vindicate their humiliations.
Why this servitude? We have no choice. Only the dead can grant us legitimacy. Left to ourselves we all bastards. #Quote by Robert Pogue Harrison
Humanity quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#46. Sometimes war takes an arm, or an eye, or it takes two legs from us, but above all the war takes our belief in humanity away from us! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Humanity quotes by Virginia Woolf
#47. To be them would be marvelous, but she was condemned to be herself and could only in this silent enthusiastic way, sitting outside in a garden, applaud the society of humanity from which she was excluded. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Humanity quotes by Maya Angelou
#48. Be certain that you do not die without having done something wonderful for humanity. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Humanity quotes by Kate Evangelista
#49. Protect that girl, Balthazar. She is an innocent in all of this."
"Why does she want Nikolas to gain his humanity?"
"She believes they are in love."
The absurdity of D's words hit Balthazar square in the gut. He would have doubled over if he didn't find the reason pathetic. Thankfully, he managed to keep the laughter in his head.
"Love? Nikolas? #Quote by Kate Evangelista
Humanity quotes by David Graeber
#50. If we let everyone decide for themselves how they were best fit to benefit humanity, with no restrictions at all, how could they possibly end up with a distribution of labor more inefficient than the one we already have? This is a powerful argument for human freedom. Most of us like to talk about freedom in the abstract, even claim that it's the most important thing for anyone to fight or die for, but we don't think a lot about what being free or practicing freedom might actually mean. The main point of this book was not to propose concrete policy prescriptions, but to start us thinking about arguing about what a genuine free society might actually be like. #Quote by David Graeber
Humanity quotes by Henry Wiencek
#51. Many writers on slavery today have emphasized the "agency" of the enslaved people, insisting that we pay heed to the efforts of the slaves to resist their condition and assert their humanity under a dehumanizing system. But as slaves gain "agency" in historical analyses, the masters seem to lose it. As the slaves become heroic figures, triumphing over their condition, slave owners recede as historical actors and are replaced by a faceless system of "context" and "forces." So we end up with slavery somehow afloat in a world in which nobody is responsible. #Quote by Henry Wiencek
Humanity quotes by Booker Little
#52. My own feelings about the direction in which jazz should go are that there should be much less stress on technical exhibitionism and much more on emotional content, on what might be termed humanity in music and the freedom to say all that you want. #Quote by Booker Little
Humanity quotes by Lauren Kate
#53. Silence is what causes most of humanity's problems #Quote by Lauren Kate
Humanity quotes by Shoshana Zuboff
#54. Labor came to humanity with the fall from grace and was at best a penitential sacrifice enabling purity through humiliation. Laborwas toil, distress, trouble, fatigue
an exertion both painful and compulsory. Labor was our animal condition, struggling to survive in dirt and darkness. #Quote by Shoshana Zuboff
Humanity quotes by Genevieve Bujold
#55. The main thing in acting is honesty, to feel the humanity and get to the essence of the character. You can't put anything into a character that you haven't got within you. #Quote by Genevieve Bujold
Humanity quotes by Oswald Chambers
#56. The transfiguration was completed on the Mount of Ascension. If Jesus had gone to heaven directly from the Mount of Transfiguration, He would have gone alone. He would have been nothing more to us than a glorious Figure. But He turned His back on the glory, and came down from the mountain to identify Himself with fallen humanity. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Humanity quotes by Hendrik Willem Van Loon
#57. 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
Humanity quotes by Gwendolyn Brooks
#58. We are each other's harvest; we are each other's business; we are each other's magnitude and bond. #Quote by Gwendolyn Brooks
Humanity quotes by Krista Tippett
#59. The mystery and art of living are as grand as the sweep of a lifetime and the lifetime of a species. And they are as close as beginning, quietly, to mine whatever grace and beauty, whatever healing and attentiveness, are possible in this moment and the next and the next one after that. #Quote by Krista Tippett
Humanity quotes by Jeffrey Fischer
#60. Humanity suffers terribly from the demons it has created over lengths of time.
we learn from nothing that we do. we create religions, heritage, race, traditions, then they all in turn become our stumbling blocks from becoming one. we suffer from the creations of our own inability to interpret history. the only thing we have succeded on is seperation.we are not that different from one another as we think we are. but we are too corrupted to break our deconstruction. #Quote by Jeffrey Fischer
Humanity quotes by Lunga Noélia Izata
#61. We went to my friend's place to continue hanging out and I fell asleep on her couch. I was dreaming and I felt something poking me, as a writer I need to be specific and use description to take my readers to the place but I don't want to take you guys there. I continued to feel poked on a part of my body that I saved for seventeen years. The poke later became touching, and I tried to stop it but I couldn't. I thought it was sleep paralysis but this time the demon was human. I felt so powerless, like I was part of the marvel universe and someone had taken my power. I never told anyone about it, because they would blame it on drinking problems. I admit that I have a drinking problem, but I am pretty sure he has a 'lack of humanity problem'. At least, alcohol does not change character. #Quote by Lunga Noélia Izata
Humanity quotes by Matt Haig
#62. And most of all, books. They were, in and of themselves, reasons to stay alive. Every book written is the product of a human mind in a particular state. Add all the books together and you get the end sum of humanity. Every time I read a great book I felt I was reading a kind of map, a treasure map, and the treasure I was being directed to was in actual fact myself. #Quote by Matt Haig
Humanity quotes by Philippa Gregory
#63. I have heard ballads of great battles, and poems about the beauty of a charge and the grace of a leader. But I did not know that war was nothing more than butchery, as savage and unskilled as sticking a pig in the throat and leaving it to bleed to make the meat tender. I did not know that the style and nobility of the jousting arena had nothing to do with this thrust and stab. Just like killing a screaming piglet for bacon after chasing it round the sty. And I did not know that war thrilled men so: they come home laughing like schoolboys after a prank; but they have blood on their hands and a smear of something on their cloaks and the smell of smoke in their hair and a terrible ugly excitement on their faces.

I understand now why they break into convents, force women against their will, defy sanctuary to finish the killing chase. They arouse in themselves a wild vicious hunger more like animals than men. I did not know war was like this. I feel I have been a fool not to know, since I was raised in a kingdom at war and am the daughter of a man captured in battle, the widow of a night, the wife of a merciless solider. But I know now. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Humanity quotes by Frantz Fanon
#64. You know full well we are exploiters. You know full well we have taken the gold and minerals and then oil from the "new continents," and shipped them back to the old metropolises. Not without excellent results in the shape of palaces, cathedrals, and centers of industry; and then when crisis loomed, the colonial markets were there to cushion the blow or divert it. Stuffed with wealth, Europe granted humanity de jure to all its inhabitants: for us, a man means an accomplice, for we have all profited from colonial exploitation. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Humanity quotes by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
#65. In Goya's greatest scenes we seem to see
the people of the world
exactly at the moment when
they first attained the title of
'suffering humanity #Quote by Lawrence Ferlinghetti
Humanity quotes by Howard Schultz
#66. There is a word that comes to my mind when I think about our company and our people. That word is 'love.' I love Starbucks because everything we've tried to do is steeped in humanity.
Respect and dignity.
Passion and laughter.
Compassion, community, and responsibility.
Authenticity.
These are Starbucks' touchstones, the source of our pride.
Valuing personal connections at a time when so many people sit alone in front of screens; aspiring to build human relationships in an age when so many issues polarize so many; and acting ethically, even if it costs more, when corners are routinely cut
these are honorable pursuits, at the core of what we set out to be. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Humanity quotes by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
#67. I've often heard people say, "Your country is beautiful, a virtual paradise." When will the people of Indonesia be as beautiful as their land, with a civilization and culture that contributes to the greater beauty of humankind and no longer smothers and strangles the mind? #Quote by Pramoedya Ananta Toer
Humanity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#68. Forget race, forget gender, forget religion, and become a human my friend. Become a human above everything else, and all great things shall follow. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Humanity quotes by Debasish Mridha
#69. Without women, humanity will be history. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Humanity quotes by Phillips Brooks
#70. Those who help a child help humanity with an immediateness which no other help given to human creature in any other stage of human life can possibly give again. #Quote by Phillips Brooks
Humanity quotes by Alejandro Jodorowsky
#71. I don't want to just love my family; I want to love all of humanity. #Quote by Alejandro Jodorowsky
Humanity quotes by Margaret Mead
#72. Women should be permitted to volunteer for non-combat service, [ ... ] We have no real way of knowing whether the kinds of training that teach men both courage and restraint would be adaptable to women or effective in a crisis. But the evidence of history and comparative studies of other species suggest that women as a fighting body might be far less amenable to the rules that prevent war from becoming a massacre and, with the use of modern weapons, that protect the survival of all humanity. That is what I meant by saying that women in combat might be too fierce. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Humanity quotes by N. Daniel
#73. The most beautiful thing about humanity is that we have the power to transmute our pain into wisdom. The most tragic thing about humanity is that we are so unwilling to be hurt. #Quote by N. Daniel
Humanity quotes by Ibn Warraq
#74. Human rights transcend local or ethnocentric values, conferring equal dignity and value on all humanity regardless of sex, ethnicity, sexual preference, or religion. It is in the West that human rights are most respected. #Quote by Ibn Warraq
Humanity quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#75. He is guilty, but he will be acquitted, from motives of humanity, in accordance with the new ideas, the new sentiments that had come into fashion, #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Humanity quotes by James Payn
#76. A man with an invention on which he has spent his life, but has no means to get it developed for the good of humanity - or even patented for himself - must feel the pinch of poverty very acutely. #Quote by James Payn
Humanity quotes by Randy Wayne White
#77. Humanity has a limited biological capacity for change but an unlimited capacity for spiritual change. The only human institution incapable of evolving spiritually is a cemetery."
S.M. Tomlinson, One Fathom Above Sea Level #Quote by Randy Wayne White
Humanity quotes by Richelle Mead
#78. Because it's our duty to God to protect the rest of humanity from evil creatures of the night. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Humanity quotes by V.K. McAllister
#79. The all-encompassing cure for cancer, heartbreak, irrationality, drug addiction, and every other ailment that plagues humanity?

Fire. #Quote by V.K. McAllister
Humanity quotes by Stanley Williams
#80. In choosing not to be a beast, I discovered my humanity. I became autodidactic, self-educated - a critical thinker. #Quote by Stanley Williams
Humanity quotes by Edward Gibbon
#81. A generous intercourse of charity united the most distant provinces, and the smaller congregations were cheerfully assisted by the alms of their more opulent brethren. Such an institution, which paid less regard to the merit than to the distress of the object, very materially conduced to the progress of Christianity. The Pagans, who were actuated by a sense of humanity, while they derided the doctrines, acknowledged the benevolence of the new sect. The prospect of immediate relief and of future protection allured into its hospitable bosom many of those unhappy persons whom the neglect of the world would have abandonned to the miseries of want, of sickness, and of old age. There is some reason likewise to believe, that great numbers of infants, who, according to the inhuman practice of the times, had been exposed by their parents, were frequently rescued from death, baptised, educated, and maintained by the piety of the Christians, and at the expense of the public treasure. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Humanity quotes by Timothy C.W. Blanning
#82. But the relationship between the between the two cultural paradigms has always been a dialectical, not cyclical. The romantics were not repeating their ancestors. On the contrary, they brought about a cultural revolution comparable in its radicalism and effects with the roughly contemporary American, French, and Industrial Revolutions.
By destroying natural law and by reorienting concern from the work to the artist they tore up the old regime's aesthetic rule book just as thoroughly as any Jacobin [a 18th century political French club] tore down social institutions. In the words of Ernst Troeltsch: "Romanticism too is a revolution, a thorough and genuine revolution: a revolution against the respectability of the bourgeois temper and against a universal equalitarian ethic: a revolution, above all, against the whole of the mathematico-mechanical spirit of science in western Europe, against a conception of Natural Law which sought to blend utility with morality, against the bare abstraction of a universal and equal Humanity." [Unquote Troeltsch]
As will be argued in the subsequent chapters, it was Hegel who captured the essence of this revolution in his pithy definition of romanticism as "absolute inwardness" [absloute Innerlichkeit - in German - אינערליכקייט]. It will also be argued that its prophet was Jean-Jacques Rousseau: if not the most consistent, then certainly the most influential of all the eighteenth-century thinkers.
Writing in 1907, Lytton Strachey ca #Quote by Timothy C.W. Blanning
Humanity quotes by Orson Scott Card
#83. It isn't the world at stake, Ender. Just us. Just humankind. As far as the rest of the earth is concerned, we could be wiped out and it would adjust, it would get on with the next step in evolution. But humanity doesn't want to die. As a species, we have evolved to survive. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Humanity quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#84. The world does not know how to concentrate on working. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Humanity quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#85. 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
Humanity quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#86. Only on paper has humanity yet achieved glory, beauty, truth, knowledge, virtue, and abiding love. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw

Humanity quotes by Alain De Botton
#89. Applied to the news , having perspective involves an ability to compare an apparently traumatic event in the present with the experiences of humanity across the whole of its history – in order to work out what level of attention and fear it should fairly demand. With perspective in mind, we soon realize that – contrary to what the news suggests – hardly anything is totally novel, few things are truly amazing and very little is absolutely terrible. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Humanity quotes by Thomas Goodwin
#90. What a wonder is it, that two natures infinitely distant, should be more intimately united than anything in the world; and yet without any confusion! That the same person should have both a glory and a grief; an infinite joy in the Deity, and an inexpressible sorrow in the humanity! That a God upon a throne should be an infant in a cradle; the thundering Creator be a weeping babe and a suffering man, are such expressions of mighty power, as well as condescending love, that they astonish men upon earth, and angels in heaven. #Quote by Thomas Goodwin
Humanity quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#91. I can't believe that we have reached the end of everything. The red dust is frightening. The carbon dioxide is real. Water is expensive. Bio-tech has created as many problems as it has fixed, but we're here, we're alive, we're the human race, we have survived wars and terrorism and scarcity and global famine, and we have made it back from the brink, not once but many times. History is not a suicide note - it's a record of our survival. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Humanity quotes by Bill Viola
#92. One of the most important things for me in terms of my working method is doubt. I get very insecure about my ideas. And I don't say 'insecure' in kind of a paranoid way. I mean just: 'Are they good enough?' 'Is this the right thing to do?' I really beat myself up over that. #Quote by Bill Viola
Humanity quotes by Ilona Andrews
#93. They're fanatics. It's like expecting humanity from a falling rock. It's not going to have a fit of compassion and not crack your skull open. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Humanity quotes by Coretta Scott King
#94. Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism
and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to
dehumanize a large group of people, to deny
their humanity, their dignity and personhood. #Quote by Coretta Scott King
Humanity quotes by John Kramer
#95. Every war, every plague is God's judgment. But every man who rises up to stop the wars and the plagues is God's instrument. Human action is God's will, not blind indifference in the face of suffering. #Quote by John Kramer
Humanity quotes by C.J. Anderson
#96. There is no God and we are his inventors. Humanity designed him like some sinister masochistic architects. The infinite blueprint for our intellectual enslavement. #Quote by C.J. Anderson
Humanity quotes by Martin Heidegger
#97. To this man, who overcomes himself, Nietzsche gives a name which is easily misunderstood. He calls him 'the superman'. But Nietzsche does not mean a type who casts off 'humanity,' to make sheer caprice the law and titanic rage the rule. The superman is the man who first leads the essential nature of existing man over into its truth, and so assumes that truth. Existing man, by being thus determined and secured, in his essential nature, is to be rendered capable of becoming the future master of the earth - of wielding to high purpose the powers that will fall to future man in the nature of the technological transformation of the earth and of human activity. The essential figure of this man, the superman rightly understood, is not a product of an unbridled and degenerate imagination rushing headlong into the void. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Humanity quotes by Edward O. Wilson
#98. Thousands of times greater in space and time is the third of our worlds, the biosphere, the totality of all life, plastered like a membrane over all of earth. The biosphere has its own epic cycles. Humanity, one of the countless species forming the biosphere, can perturb it, but we cannot leave it or destroy it without perishing ourselves. The cycles of the other species can be destroyed, and the biosphere corrupted. But for each careless step we take, our species will ultimately pay an unwelcome price - always. #Quote by Edward O. Wilson
Humanity quotes by James S.A. Corey
#99. It had been the most complex, difficult feat of mass-scale engineering humanity had ever accomplished until the next thing they did. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Humanity quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#100. I admit there are some beliefs upon which I do pass judgment and this is one of them: any belief that calls for the enslavement, maiming, or killing of another is corrupt, primitive, and never divinely inspired. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Humanity quotes by Hank Green
#101. Your cruelties and mistakes may look damning to you, but that is not what I see. Every human conversation is more elegant and complex than the entire solar system that contains it. You have no idea how marvelous you are, but I am not only here to protect what you are now, I am here to protect what you will become. I can't tell you what that might be because I don't know. That unknown is a diamond in a universe of dirt. Uncertainty. Unpredictability. It is when you turn your emotions into art. It is BTS and the Sistine Chapel and Rumi's poetry and Ross Geller on the stairs yelling, 'Pivot.' Every creation great and small, they are our diamonds. And what you may be in two hundred years, we can guess with fair accuracy. What you are in two thousand . . . Oh, my friends . . . my best friends, you cannot know. #Quote by Hank Green
Humanity quotes by Moliere
#102. It may cost me twenty thousand francs; but for twenty thousand francs, I will have the right to rail against the iniquity of humanity, and to devote to it my eternal hatred. #Quote by Moliere
Humanity quotes by J.M. McDermott
#103. This man was being kept alive by those machines. Someone was trying to help him. They were just trying to help. All the horrible things we've seen are just people trying to help, aren't they? To make the work a little easier, and the world a little easier for people to live in. And it turned into a nightmare. #Quote by J.M. McDermott
Humanity quotes by Montesquieu
#104. Knowledge makes men gentle; reason leads to humanity; but prejudices can only eradicate both these dispositions. #Quote by Montesquieu
Humanity quotes by Paulo Coelho
#105. When he looked into her dark eyes, and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence, he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke - the language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love. Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert. Something that exerted the same force whenever two pairs of eyes met #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Humanity quotes by Fiphie
#106. [...] The fact is that in order to be loved and to accept love you have to get naked to the very bone of your own being. Taking off every layer of skin that gives us humans the illusion that in some way we're different from the rest. For better or for worse. Truth is though that under that burden of skin and flesh we're all the same mortal skeletons dancing to the same bittersweet song of life. [...] #Quote by Fiphie
Humanity quotes by Andrew Root
#107. Ministry is not about helping these kids be better Christians; it is about helping them be what God created them to be-human. And it is the degradation of their humanity, brought about by broken and abusive families, violent neighborhoods, failing schools and poverty, that caused them to lash out so forcefully. Ministry is about suffering with them in their dehumanization, celebrating their human endeavors and in all things pointing to the true human, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Having #Quote by Andrew Root
Humanity quotes by Elizabeth Holmes
#108. I don't want to make an incremental change in some technology in my life. I want to create a whole new technology, and one that is aimed at helping humanity at all levels regardless of geography or ethnicity or age or gender. #Quote by Elizabeth Holmes
Humanity quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#109. But I say that we are the enemies of society, and so much the worse for society. We are the enemies of society, for society is the enemy of humanity, its oldest and its most pitiless enemy. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Humanity quotes by Charles Eisenstein
#110. It is the cry of the separate self, 'What about me?' As long as we keep acting from that place, it doesn't matter who wins the war against (what they see as) evil. The world will not deviate from its death-spiral. #Quote by Charles Eisenstein
Humanity quotes by Ivan Doig
#111. Men and women are hard ore, we do not go to slag in a mere few seasons of forge. #Quote by Ivan Doig
Humanity quotes by David Levithan
#112. The important thing is for the characters to feel real, and to be given the humanity they are due. That granting of humanity is what separates a full portrait from a stereotype. #Quote by David Levithan
Humanity quotes by Henri Cartier-Bresson
#113. 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
Humanity quotes by Jean Sasson
#114. How true is it that humanity refuses compromise during prosperity, and reaches out for arbitration when weak. #Quote by Jean Sasson
Humanity quotes by Horst Koehler
#115. In my view, the humanity of our world can be measured against the fate of Africa. #Quote by Horst Koehler
Humanity quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#116. She has stepped out into a different night, a different town altogether, one of those first-person-shooter towns that you can drive around in seemingly forever, but never away from. The only humanity visible are virtual extras in the distance, none offering any of the help she needs. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Humanity quotes by Jeffrey Lang
#117. You cannot simply read the Quran,not if you take it seriously.You either have surrendered to it already or you fight it.
It attacks tenaciously,directly,personally; it debates,criticizes,shames and challenges.
From the outset it draws the line of battle, and I was on other side. #Quote by Jeffrey Lang
Humanity quotes by Auliq Ice
#118. The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with those who matter to you most. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Humanity quotes by Nancy Huston
#119. Literature allows us to cross the borders -- as imaginary as they are indispensable -- which circumscribe and define our selves. Reading, we allow other people to enter us -- and if we make room for them so willingly, it's because we know them already. The novel celebrates our miraculous capacity to recognize others in ourselves, and ourselves in others. #Quote by Nancy Huston
Humanity quotes by Pope Francis
#120. Environmental degradation is one of the biggest challenges we have. I think a question that we're not asking ourselves is: 'Isn't humanity committing suicide with this indiscriminate and tyrannical use of nature?' #Quote by Pope Francis
Humanity quotes by Debasish Mridha
#121. Life is like a magical bud hoping to bloom into a beautiful flower that will beautify humanity with her petals of love. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Humanity quotes by Mary Robinson
#122. We must understand the role of human rights as empowering of individuals and communities. By protecting these rights, we can help prevent the many conflicts based on poverty, discrimination and exclusion (social, economic and political) that continue to plague humanity and destroy decades of development efforts. The vicious circle of human rights violations that lead to conflicts-which in turn lead to more violations-must be broken. I believe we can break it only by ensuring respect for all human rights. #Quote by Mary Robinson
Humanity quotes by Terrence McNally
#123. Cheating is not the American way. It is small, while we are large. It is cheap, while we are richly endowed. It is destructive, while we are creative. It is doomed to fail, while our gifts and responsibilities call us to achieve. It sabotages trust and weakens the bonds of spirit and humanity, without which we perish. #Quote by Terrence McNally
Humanity quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#124. What distinguishes normal people is that we share a metaphorical dagger; the concerns of our self - reflection. With this dagger, we cut ourselves and bleed; and the job of our chains of self - reflection is to give us the feeling that we are bleeding together, that we are sharing something wonderful; our humanity. But if we were to examine it, we would discover that we are bleeding alone; that we are not sharing anything; that all we are doing is toying with our manageable, unreal, man-made reflection. Sorcerers are no longer in the world of daily affairs, because they are no longer prey to their self - reflection. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Humanity quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#125. Well, I've worried some about, you know, why write books ... why are we teaching people to write books when presidents and senators do not read them, and generals do not read them. And it's been the university experience that taught me that there is a very good reason, that you catch people before they become generals and presidents and so forth and you poison their minds with ... humanity, and however you want to poison their minds, it's presumably to encourage them to make a better world. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Humanity quotes by Theodor Herzl
#126. Nothing prevents us from being and remaining the exponents of a united humanity, when we have a country of our own. To fulfill this mission we do not have to remain literally planted among the nations who hate and despise us. #Quote by Theodor Herzl
Humanity quotes by Lionel Suggs
#127. Every time the sky cries, it is because an angel has died ... Lucifer started a war in Heaven, and it persists even now. So if God cannot keep his angels under control, what makes you believe that he can keep humanity under control? #Quote by Lionel Suggs
Humanity quotes by Izaak Walton
#128. You will find angling to be like the virtue of humanity, which has a calmness of spirit and a world of blessing attending upon it. #Quote by Izaak Walton
Humanity quotes by Matt Taibbi
#129. Greenspan's eventual explanation for the growing gap between stock prices and actual productivity was that, fortuitously, the laws of nature had changed
humanity had reached a happy stage of history where bullshit could be used as rocket fuel. #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Humanity quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#130. Their favourite phrase! From which it follows that, if society is normally organised, all crime will cease at once, since there will be nothing to protest against and all men will become righteous in one instant. Human nature is not taken into account, it is excluded, it's not supposed to exist! They don't recognise that humanity, developing by a historical living process, will become at last a normal society, but they believe that a social system that has come out of some mathematical brain is going to organise all humanity at once and make it just and sinless in an instant, quicker than any living process! That's why they instinctively dislike history, 'nothing but ugliness and stupidity in it,' and they explain it all as stupidity! That's why they so dislike the living process of life; they don't want a living soul! The living soul demands life, the soul won't obey the rules of mechanics, the soul is an object of suspicion, the soul is retrograde! But what they want though it smells of death and can be made of India-rubber, at least is not alive, has no will, is servile and won't revolt! And it comes in the end to their reducing everything to the building of walls and the planning of rooms and passages in a phalanstery! The phalanstery is ready, indeed, but your human nature is not ready for the phalanstery - it wants life, it hasn't completed its vital process, it's too soon for the graveyard! You can't skip over nature by logic. Logic presupposes three possibilities, but #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Humanity quotes by Karen Swallow Prior
#131. ... mischief, ... arises not from our living in the world, but from the world living in us; occupying our hearts, and monopolizing our affections. #Quote by Karen Swallow Prior
Humanity quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#132. MTV and video games have solved that problem as far as most of humanity goes. That, and telly, as it were."
"Telly?" Who was that?
He grunted in amusement. "Television, of course. Don't you speak English?"
"You sure don't," I muttered.
Shaking his head, he frowned at me. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Humanity quotes by Oswald Spengler
#133. Is there a logic of history? Is there, beyond all the casual and incalculable elements of the separate events, something that we may call a metaphysical structure of historic humanity, something that is essentially independent of the outward forms - social, spiritual and political - which we see so clearly? #Quote by Oswald Spengler
Humanity quotes by Armin Arlert
#134. To defeat a monster, you must be willing to throw aside your humanity and all that makes you human #Quote by Armin Arlert
Humanity quotes by Roxane Gay
#135. People do terrible things all the time, but we don't regularly disown our humanity. We disavow the terrible things. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Humanity quotes by William Carlos Williams
#136. History must stay open, it is all humanity. #Quote by William Carlos Williams
Humanity quotes by Phil Robertson
#137. I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty, and like Him, I love all of humanity. #Quote by Phil Robertson
Humanity quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#138. If you live your life burning for the highest possibility, in that burning itself, there is liberation. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Humanity quotes by Russell Kirk
#139. True conformity to the dictates of nature requires reverence for the past and solicitude for the future. 'Nature' is not simply the sensation of the passing moment; it is eternal, though we evanescent men experience only a fragment of it. We have no right to imperil the happiness of posterity by impudently tinkering with the heritage of humanity. #Quote by Russell Kirk
Humanity quotes by Robert Hugh Benson
#140. It was incredible, she told herself, that this ravening monster, dripping blood from claws and teeth, that had arisen roaring in the night, could be the Humanity that had become her God. She had thought revenge and cruelty and slaughter to be the brood of Christian superstition, dead and buried under the new-born angel of light, and now it seemed that the monsters yet stirred and lived. #Quote by Robert Hugh Benson
Humanity quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#141. I don't know what's wrong with me tonight. I feel off, unbalanced. Aching for something. I'm losing sight of my purpose, my sense of direction. I always tell myself that I'm fighting every day for hope, for the salvation of humanity, but every time I survive only to return to yet more loss and devastation, something comes loose inside of me. It's like the people and places I love are the nuts and bolts keeping me upright; without them, I'm just scrap metal. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Humanity quotes by Jonathan Sacks
#142. I see in the rising crescendo of ethnic tensions, civilization clashes and the use of religious justification for acts of terror, a clear and present danger to humanity. #Quote by Jonathan Sacks
Humanity quotes by Mason Cooley
#143. To postpone unpleasantness is human; to forget it is divine. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Humanity quotes by Katherine Applegate
#144. Someday, if we won, if humanity survived, we'd be in the history books. Me and Jake and Rachel and Cassie and Tobias and Ax. They'd be household names, like generals from World War II or the Civil War. Patton and Eisenhower, Ulysses Grant and Robert E. Lee. Kids would study us in school. Bored, probably.
And then the teacher would tell the story of Marco. I'd be a part of history. What I was about to do. Some kid would laugh. Some kid would say, "Cold, man. That was really cold."
I had to do it, kid. It was a war. It's the whole point, you stupid, smug, smirking little jerk! Don't you get it?
It was the whole point. We hurt the innocent in order to stop the evil. Innocent Hork-Bajir. Innocent Taxxons. Innocent human-Controllers. How else to stop the Yeerks? How else to win?
No choice, you punk. We did what we had to do.
"Cold, man. The Marco dude? He was just cold. #Quote by Katherine Applegate
Humanity quotes by J.B. Richards
#145. Humankind would be so bored if we already knew all the answers! The beauty of the Universe lies in our need to understand it, for that is what challenges us to acquire the knowledge and wisdom to reach great heights! #Quote by J.B. Richards
Humanity quotes by Dean Koontz
#146. Fear is the engine that drives the human animal. Humanity sees the world as a place of uncountable threats, and so the world becomes what humanity imagines it to be. They not only live in fear but use fear to control one another. Fearmongering is their true religion. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Humanity quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#147. The greatest part of our existence enfold in service of humanity. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Humanity quotes by Ralph Ellison
#148. The understanding of art depends finally upon one's willingness to extend one's humanity and one's knowledge of human life. #Quote by Ralph Ellison
Humanity quotes by Jenni Schaefer
#149. I left myself out of humanity by focusing on differences. This isolation only strengthened Ed (17) #Quote by Jenni Schaefer
Humanity quotes by Sandra Postel
#150. Reforesting the earth is possible, given a human touch. #Quote by Sandra Postel
Humanity quotes by Adam Mickley Wood
#151. Theres a process of self doubt when things go wrong. Whether or not its personal or a friend in trouble, looking at ones self isn't always the answer neither is seeking god. Just acception and the will to decide is a human condition, but the circle of choices flux with time. So fight my friend or choose your demise, because after all we are only human. #Quote by Adam Mickley Wood
Humanity quotes by Murray Bookchin
#152. [W]ithout changing the most molecular relationships in society - notably, those between men and women, adults and children, whites and other ethnic groups, heterosexuals and gays (the list, in fact, is considerable) - society will be riddled by domination even in a socialistic 'classless' and 'non-exploitative' form. It would be infused by hierarchy even as it celebrated the dubious virtues of 'people's democracies,' 'socialism' and the 'public ownership' of 'natural resources,' And as long as hierarchy persists, as long as domination organises humanity around a system of elites, the project of dominating nature will continue to exist and inevitably lead our planet to ecological extinction #Quote by Murray Bookchin
Humanity quotes by Rasmenia Massoud
#153. Lucius didn't believe in werewolves. He said that people were too horrible for any other monsters to exist, which he thought was a shame. #Quote by Rasmenia Massoud
Humanity quotes by Ellen G. White
#154. Of the poor, fainting soul, tired of looking to humanity only to be betrayed and forgotten, Christ says, "Let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me" (Isaiah 27:5). #Quote by Ellen G. White
Humanity quotes by Salena Godden
#155. Human colour is the colour I'm truly interested in, the colour of your humanity. May the size of your heart and the depth of your soul be your currency. Welcome aboard my Good Ship. Let us sail to the colourful island of mixed identity.
"SHADE" - Salena Godden #Quote by Salena Godden
Humanity quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#156. As humanity perfects itself, man becomes degraded. When everything is reduced to the mere counter-balancing of economic interests, what room will there be for virtue? When Nature has been so subjugated that she has lost all her original forms, where will that leave the plastic arts? And so on. In the mean time, things are going to get very murky. #Quote by Gustave Flaubert
Humanity quotes by Da Xia
#157. Nothing in this world, is completely new. That's why we study history and compare today, with the past. In the end, every human being, has the same way of thinking. #Quote by Da Xia
Humanity quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#158. Yet there is no gainsaying but that it must have been somewhat sweeter in that dewy morning of creation, when it was young and fresh, when the feet of the tramping millions had not trodden its grass to dust, nor the din of the myriad cities chased the silence forever away. Life must have been noble and solemn to those free-footed, loose-robed fathers of the human race, walking hand in hand with God under the great sky. They lived in sunkissed tents amid the lowing herds. They took their simple wants from the loving hand of Nature. They toiled and talked and thought; and the great earth rolled around in stillness, not yet laden with trouble and wrong. Those days are past now. The quiet childhood of Humanity, spent in the far-off forest glades and by the murmuring rivers, is gone forever; and human life is deepening down to manhood amid tumult, doubt, and hope. Its age of restful peace is past. It has its work to finish and must hasten on. What that work may be - what this world's share is in the great design - we know not, though our unconscious hands are helping to accomplish it. Like the tiny coral insect working deep under the dark waters, we strive and struggle each for our own little ends, nor dream of the vast fabric we are building up for God. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Humanity quotes by Douglas Coupland
#159. 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
Humanity quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#160. Property as compared with humanity, as compared with the red blood in the American people, must take second place, not first place. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Humanity quotes by Susannah Cahalan
#161. How many people throughout history suffered from my disease and others like it but went untreated? This question is made more pressing by the knowledge that even though the disease was discovered in 2007, some doctors I spoke to believe that it's been around at least as long as humanity has. #Quote by Susannah Cahalan
Humanity quotes by James Russell Lowell
#162. The traitor to Humanity is the traitor most accursed; Man is more than Constitutions; better rot beneath the sod, Than be true to Church and State while we are doubly false to God. #Quote by James Russell Lowell
Humanity quotes by Johnny Hart
#163. Cutting the space budget really restores my faith in humanity. It eliminates dreams, goals, and ideals and lets us get straight to the business of hate, debauchery, and self-annihilation. #Quote by Johnny Hart
Humanity quotes by Suzy Kassem
#164. The price for standing up for Truth, no matter how severe, will always be less than the price our souls will be penalized for not speaking up for our conscience. There is no greater crime in the universe than silencing your conscience. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Humanity quotes by Jodi Picoult
#165. The first Abenaki word I ever learned was Bitawbagok – the word they use for Lake Champlain. It means, literally, the waters between. Since I've come back from Quebec, I have thought of my address as Bitawkdakinna. I don't know enough Abenaki to be sure it's a real word, but translated, it is the world between.
I had become a bridge between the natural world and the human one. I fit into both places and belonged to neither. Half of my heart lived with the wild wolves, the other half lived with my family. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Humanity quotes by Nurudeen Ushawu
#166. Be soft, don't let the world make you hard. Be gentle, don't let the people make you difficult. Be kind, don't let the realities of life steal your sweetness and make you heartless. #Quote by Nurudeen Ushawu
Humanity quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#167. You frantically want to make a mark on the history of humanity? You, King of the Fools! In the very distant future, there shall be no history; there shall remain not even a single trace of anything! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Humanity quotes by Samuel Bryan
#168. The evil genius of darkness presided at its birth, it came forth under the veil of mystery, its true features being carefully concealed, and every deceptive art has been and is practicing to have this spurious brat received as the genuine offspring of heaven-born liberty. So fearful are its patrons that you should discern the imposition, that they have hurried on its adoption, with the greatest precipitation. After so recent a triumph over British despots, after such torrents of blood and treasure have been spent, after involving ourselves in the distresses of an arduous war, and incurring such a debt for the express purpose of asserting the rights of humanity; it is truly astonishing that a set of men among ourselves should have the effrontery to attempt the destruction ofour liberties. But in this enlightened age to hope to dupe the people by the arts they are practicing is still more extraordinary. #Quote by Samuel Bryan
Humanity quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#169. What we need most is to restore and revive our humanity. We must create a society where people can live with dignity, a society where people can live in peace and happiness. People are tired of games played for power and profit. People are tired of hatred and conflict. They want to live with more wisdom and confidence, and in peace. It may seem like a long and distant path, but I am convinced that the 21st century must see a movement to sow the seeds of peace, happiness and trust in every person's heart. The seeds of a truly humane way of life. I am convinced this is the only path. #Quote by Daisaku Ikeda
Humanity quotes by Germany Kent
#170. If you have the courage to connect with people from different races, nationalities, backgrounds, cultures, and regions, you have the power to bring about a change in the world. #Quote by Germany Kent
Humanity quotes by Thiruman Archunan
#171. without the act of imagination humanity would have perished long back #Quote by Thiruman Archunan
Humanity quotes by Anyaele Sam Chiyson
#172. A man who knows that his semen is his most precious possession will not waste it. Do not be allured by the female body and beauty to make love to her especially when she is not your legally married partner. In your sperm lays the secret of life which powers the system that drives the progress of humanity. #Quote by Anyaele Sam Chiyson
Humanity quotes by Olaf Stapledon
#173. Myriads of individuals, each one unique, live out their lives in rapt intercourse with one another, contribute their heart's pulses to the universal music, and presently vanish, giving place to others. All this age-long sequence of private living, which is the actual tissue of humanity's flesh, I cannot describe. I can only trace, as it were, the disembodied form of its growth. #Quote by Olaf Stapledon
Humanity quotes by Jacques Camatte
#174. The domestication of humanity and the escape of capital are concepts which can explain the mentality and activity of those who claim to be revolutionaries and believe that they can intervene to hasten the onset of revolution: the fact is that they are playing roles which are a part of the old world. The revolution always eludes them and when there is any kind of upheaval they see it as something external to them, which they have to chase after in order to be acknowledged as "revolutionaries". #Quote by Jacques Camatte
Humanity quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#175. I have the legacy of my father and his nocturnal automatic waking up. But I like those periods. I immediately have a different vision of humanity and my life. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Humanity quotes by Anthony Lewis
#176. The Nuremberg trials of Nazi leaders, in open court before an international tribunal, had a profound long-term effect in bringing Germans back to democracy and humanity. #Quote by Anthony Lewis
Humanity quotes by John Ruskin
#177. There is in every animal's eye a dim image and gleam of humanity, a flash of strange light through which their life looks out and up to our great mystery of command over them, and claims the fellowship of the creature if not of the soul. #Quote by John Ruskin
Humanity quotes by Don Roff
#178. If you focus on the humanity of your stories, your characters, then the horror will be stronger, scarier. Without the humanity, the horror becomes nothing more than a tawdry parlor trick. All flash and no magic, and worst of all, no heart. #Quote by Don Roff
Humanity quotes by Mary McLeod Bethune
#179. I leave you love. I leave you hope. I leave you the challenge of developing confidence in one another. I leave you a thirst for education. I leave you a respect for the use of power. I leave you faith. I leave you racial dignity. I leave you a desire to live harmoniously with your fellow men. I leave you finally, a responsibility to our young people. #Quote by Mary McLeod Bethune
Humanity quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#180. 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
Humanity quotes by Aporva Kala
#181. He did not see the huge armies but the world divided into two opposites camps: the right and the wrong, the good and the evil, the aggressor and the defender, the unrighteous and the righteous, the arrogant and the humble. It is not the people who are inclined to fight against each other but the men who lead them. Humanity as a rule wants to relate with each other and wars are an exception to this rule. #Quote by Aporva Kala

Humanity quotes by Richard Corliss
#186. In 'Blade Runner,' the here is quite enough: a vision of dark, cramped, urban squalor. This is Los Angeles in the year 2019, when most of the earth's inhabitants have colonized other planets, and only a polyglot refuse heap of humanity remains. Los Angeles is a Japanized nighttown of sleaze and silicon, fetid steam, and perpetual rain. #Quote by Richard Corliss
Humanity quotes by Dan Rather
#187. [I]nclusion, not assimilation, should be the key concept in seeking, ever seeking, a more perfect national union. Our own history has shown that we are stronger as a mosaic than a melting pot. Our nation is bound together more by ideals than by blood or land, and inclusion is in our cultural DNA. We should feel proud that we are not all the same, and that we can share our differences under the common umbrella of humanity. #Quote by Dan Rather
Humanity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#188. I urge you not to buy my books right now, instead use that money to help someone in need. Philosophy can wait, but humanity cannot. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Humanity quotes by Henri Barbusse
#189. We are all, always, the desire not to die. This desire is as immeasurable and varied as life's complexity, but at bottom this is what it is: To continue to be, to be more and more, to develop and to endure. All the force we have, all our energy and clearness of mind serve to intensify themselves in one way or another. We intensify ourselves with new impressions, new sensations, new ideas. We endeavor to take what we do not have and to add it to ourselves. Humanity is the desire for novelty founded upon the fear of death. That is what it is. #Quote by Henri Barbusse
Humanity quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#190. The humble, simple souls, who are little enough to see the bigness of God in the littleness of a Babe, are therefore the only ones who will ever understand the reason of His visitation. He came to this poor earth of ours to carry on an exchange; to say to us, as only the Good God could say: 'you give me your humanity, and I will give you my Divinity; you give me your time, and I will give you My eternity; you give me your broken heart, and I will give you Love; you give me your nothingness, and I will give you My all. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Humanity quotes by Charles Galton Darwin
#191. 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

Humanity quotes by Eric Hoffer
#193. Absolute power corrupts even when exercised for humane purposes. The benevolent despot who sees himself as a shepherd of the people still demands from others the submissiveness of sheep. The taint inherent in absolute power is not its inhumanity but its anti-humanity. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Humanity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#194. Time and again the need arises for one fierce sword of character to stand face to face with the inhumans and bigots, and announce with a earth-shaking fervor - from this moment on, you are only inches away from extinction - at night look closely to every shadow - and by the light of day know that I am just one step behind you - mark me - one sinister move, one malicious deed and I will swoop down on you like god's thunder - from this moment on, I own your evil heart, and I will crush it, if you hurt the people anymore. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Humanity quotes by Orson Scott Card

Humanity quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#199. The majority of people have successfully alienated themselves from change; they tediously arrange their lives into a familiar pattern, they give themselves to normalcy, they are proud if they are able to follow in auspicious footsteps set before them, they take pride in always coloring inside the lines and they feel secure if they belong to a batch of others who are like them. Now, if familiar patterns bore you, if normalcy passes before you unnoticed, if you want to create your own footsteps in the earth and leave your own handprints on the skies, if you are the one who doesn't mind the lines in the coloring book as much as others do, and perchance you do not cling to a flock for you to identify with, then you must be ready for adversity. If you are something extraordinary, you are going to always shock others and while they go about existing in their mundaneness which they call success, you're going to be flying around crazy in their skies and that scares them. People are afraid of change, afraid of being different, afraid of doing things and thinking things that aren't a part of their checkerboard game of a life. They only know the pieces and the moves in their games, and that's it. You're always going to find them in the place that you think you're going to find them in, and every time they think about you, you're going to give them a heart attack. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Humanity quotes by Sameh Elsayed
