Mankind quotes by Jack Du Brul
#1. Futurists are already predicting the day mankind builds its replacement, Artificial Intelligence. Daniel Wilson shows what might happen when that computer realizes its creators are no longer needed. Lean prose, great characters, and almost unbearable tension ensure that Robopocalypse is going to be a blockbuster. Once started I defy anyone to put it down. #Quote by Jack Du Brul
Mankind quotes by George Albert Smith
#2. Our feet have been planted upon this sacred soil for a wise purpose. This land has been dedicated for the blessing of mankind. The Constitution and the laws that have been enacted under its provisions are calculated to insure liberty, not license, to all who dwell here. This church with which we are identified stands, if it stands for anything, for the perpetuation of the liberties of all mankind. We should not listen to those who find pleasure in teaching sedition. Neither should we follow those who claim to be citizens of this land, who go about violating the laws that govern it. There are many who are failing to do their duty as citizens who have the right of franchise, but who are unworthy of that blessing that has come to those who live in this wonderful country. #Quote by George Albert Smith
Mankind quotes by Georg Simmel
#3. Gratitude is the moral memory of mankind. #Quote by Georg Simmel
Mankind quotes by Samuel Adams
#4. In regard to religion, mutual toleration in the different professions thereof is what all good and candid minds in all ages have ever practiced, and both by precept and example inculcated on mankind. #Quote by Samuel Adams
Mankind quotes by Erwin Panofsky
#5. Reform or no reform, he never ceased to promote the interests of St. Denis and the Royal House of France with the same naive, and in his case not entirely unjustified, conviction of their identity with those of the nation and with the Will of God as a modern oil or steel magnate may promote legislation favorable to his company and to his bank as something beneficial to the welfare of this country and to the progress of mankind. #Quote by Erwin Panofsky
Mankind quotes by William Winwood Reade
#6. A religion so cheerless, a philosophy so sorrowful, could never have succeeded with the masses of mankind if presented only as a system of metaphysics. Buddhism owed its success to its catholic spirit and its beautiful morality. #Quote by William Winwood Reade
Mankind quotes by Carl Schmitt
#7. The transformation of the community into an administrative state responsible for total social welfare leads to a paternal totality without a house-father when it fails to find any archy or cracy that is more than a mere nomos of distribution and production.
I consider it to be a utopia when Friedrich Engels promises that one day all power of men over men will cease, that there will be only production and consumption with no problems, and that "things will govern themselves." This things-governing-themselves will make every archy and cracy super­fluous , and demonstrate that mankind at last has found its formula, just as, according to Dostoyevsky, the bees found their formula in the beehive, because animal s, too, have their nomos. Most of those who swarm around a nomos basileus fail to notice that, in reality, they propagate just such a formula. #Quote by Carl Schmitt
Mankind quotes by Robert E. Howard
#8. Barbarianism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is the whim of circumstance. And barbarianism must ultimately triumph #Quote by Robert E. Howard
Mankind quotes by John Brunner
#9. Page: Don't keep the world on tenterhooks, Tom! Out with it! What's the best thing we can do to ensure a long, happy, healthy future for mankind?
Grey: We can just about restore the balance of the ecology, the biosphere, and so on-in other words we can live within our means instead of on an unrepayable overdraft, as we've been doing for the past half century-if we exterminate the two hundred million most extravagant and wasteful of our species.
Page: Follow that if you can, Mr. President. #Quote by John Brunner
Mankind quotes by Jaime Lerner
#10. There are three major issues now that are becoming important, not only for cities, but for all mankind: Mobility, sustainability - which is linked to mobility - and social diversity. #Quote by Jaime Lerner
Mankind quotes by Sigmund Freud
#11. The religions of mankind must be classed among the mass-delusions of this kind. No one, needless to say, who shares a delusion ever recognizes it as such ... #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Mankind quotes by Joseph Conrad
#12. The panes streamed with rain, and the short street he looked down into lay wet and empty, as if swept clear suddenly by a great flood. It was a very trying day, choked in raw fog to begin with, and now drowned in cold rain. The flickering, blurred flames of gas-lamps seemed to be dissolving in a watery atmosphere. And the lofty pretensions of a mankind oppressed by the miserable indignities of the weather appeared as a colossal and hopeless vanity deserving of scorn, wonder, and compassion. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Mankind quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#13. If we look more closely, we see that any violent display of power, whether political or religious, produces an outburst of folly in a large part of mankind; indeed, this seems actually to be a psychological and sociological law: the power of some needs the folly of others. It is not that certain human capacities, intellectual capacities for instance, become stunted of destroyed, but rather that the upsurge of power makes such an overwhelming impression that men are deprived of their independent judgment, and ... give up trying to assess the new state of affairs for themselves. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Mankind quotes by Dumas Malone
#14. The fact that we became a nation and immediately separated church and state - it has saved us from all the misery that has beset mankind with inquisitions, internecine and civil wars, and other assorted ills. #Quote by Dumas Malone
Mankind quotes by Abdus Salam
#15. Mankind spends much more on training pilots of aircraft than it does to train the nuclear reactor operators. #Quote by Abdus Salam
Mankind quotes by John Stuart Mill
#16. The general tendency of things throughout the world is to render mediocrity the ascendant power among mankind. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Mankind quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#17. What would yield the greater benefit to mankind: if I spent the afternoon taking stock in my dispensary, or if I went to the beach and took off my clothes and lay in my underpants absorbing the benign spring sun, watching the children frolic in the water, later buying an ice-cream from the kiosk on the parking lot, if the kiosk is still there? What did Noël ultimately achieve labouring at his desk to balance the bodies out against the bodies in? Would he not be better off taking a nap? Maybe the universal sum of happiness would be increased if we declared this afternoon a holiday and went down to the beach, commandant, doctor, chaplain, PT instructors, guards, dog-handlers all together with the six hard cases from the detention block, leaving behind the concussion case to look after things. Perhaps we might meet some girls. For what reason were we waging the war, after all, but to augment the sum of happiness in the universe? Or was I misremembering, was that another war I was thinking of? #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Mankind quotes by Giovanni Pico Della Mirandola
#18. You [Mankind] have been given no particular function. You may give your life whatever form you choose, do whatever you wish ... you have no limitations, and can act in accord with your own free will. You alone can choose the limits of your nature. #Quote by Giovanni Pico Della Mirandola
Mankind quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#19. 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
Mankind quotes by Thomas Reid
#20. But when, in the first setting out, he takes it for granted without proof, that distinctions found in the structure of all languages, have no foundation in nature; this surely is too fastidious a way of treating the common sense of mankind. #Quote by Thomas Reid
Mankind quotes by Ludwig Feuerbach
#21. Christianity has in fact long vanished, not only from the reason but also from the life of mankind, and it is nothing more than a fixed idea. #Quote by Ludwig Feuerbach
Mankind quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#22. I am convinced that there can be no regeneration of mankind until laughter is put down. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Mankind quotes by George Berkeley
#23. All that stock of arguments [the skeptics] produce to depreciate our faculties, and make mankind appear ignorant and low, are drawn principally from this head, to wit, that we are under an invincible blindness as to the true and real nature of things. #Quote by George Berkeley
Mankind quotes by Thomas Paine
#24. I am sensible that he who means to do mankind a real service must set down with the determination of putting up, and bearing with all their faults, follies, prejudices and mistakes until he can convince them that he is right. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Mankind quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#25. In the history of mankind many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state; and in no way has this loss of power been so often and so clearly shown as in the tendency to turn the government into a government primarily for the benefit of one class instead of a government for the benefit of the people as a whole. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Mankind quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#26. Alyosha, was not at all a fanatic, and, in my view at least, even not at all a mystic. I will give my full opinion beforehand: he was simply an early lover of mankind,1 and if he threw himself into the monastery path, it was only because it alone struck him at the time and presented him, so to speak, with an ideal way out for his soul struggling from the darkness of worldly wickedness towards the light of love. And this path struck him only because on it at that time he met a remarkable being, in his opinion, our famous monastery elder Zosima, to whom he became attached with all the ardent first love of his unquenchable heart. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Mankind quotes by Robert Sheckley
#27. A lot of us don't want to be quite that serious about world problems. Our life is there to enjoy, not to be an eternal dissident, eternally unhappy with how things are and with the state of mankind. #Quote by Robert Sheckley
Mankind quotes by George Albert Smith
#28. We have a wonderful Church organization, but the one place where we may have greater influence than any other is in the homes in which we reside. We have our Sabbath Schools, our Mutual Improvement Associations, our Relief Societies, our Primaries, our Church schools and seminaries. All these institutions are intended to develop the best that is in mankind, but we as parents of children in this Church have no right to place the responsibility upon these organizations to establish faith in the hearts of these children that God has placed in our homes. It is your duty and mine to teach the children that come to our homes. #Quote by George Albert Smith
Mankind quotes by Daniel H. Wilson
#29. If popular culture has taught us anything, it is that someday mankind must face and destroy the growing robot menace. #Quote by Daniel H. Wilson
Mankind quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#30. Now that physics is proving the intelligence of the universe what are we to do about the stupidity of mankind? I include myself. I know that the earth is not flat but my feet are. I know that space is curved but my brain has been condoned by habit to grow in a straight line. What I call light is my own blend of darkness. What I call a view is my hand-painted trompe-l'oeil. I run after knowledge like a ferret down a ferret hole. My limitations, I call the boundaries of what can be known. I interpret the world by confusing other people's psychology with my own. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Mankind quotes by Hiroya Oku
#31. Before the World
was created,
the Word already existed.
The Word was
the source of life,
and this life brought light
to mankind.
The light shines
in the darkness,
and the darkness
has never put it out. #Quote by Hiroya Oku
Mankind quotes by John Calvin
#32. Hatred grows into insolence when we desire to excel the rest of mankind and imagine we do not belong to the common lot; we even severely and haughtily despise others as our inferiors. #Quote by John Calvin
Mankind quotes by Georges Bataille
#33. Man always becomes other. Man is the animal who continually differs from himself. #Quote by Georges Bataille
Mankind quotes by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
#34. We live among ruins in a World in which 'god is dead' as Nietzsche stated. The ideals of today are comfort, expediency, surface knowledge, disregard for one's ancestral heritage and traditions, catering to the lowest standards of taste and intelligence, apotheosis of the pathetic, hoarding of material objects and possessions, disrespect for all that is inherently higher and better - in other words
a complete inversion of true values and ideals, the raising of the victory flag of ignorance and the banner of degeneracy. In such a time, social decadence is so widespread that it appears as a natural component of all political institutions. The crises that dominate the daily lives of our societies are part of a secret occult war to remove the support of spiritual and traditional values in order to turn man into a passive instrument of dark powers.

The common ground of both Capitalism and Socialism is a materialistic view of life and being. Materialism in its war with the Spirit has taken on many forms; some have promoted its goals with great subtlety, whilst others have done so with an alarming lack of subtlety, but all have added, in greater or lesser measure, to the growing misery of Mankind. The forms which have done the most damage in our time may be enumerated as: Freemasonry, Liberalism, Nihilism, Capitalism, Socialism, Marxism, Imperialism, Anarchism, Modernism and the New Age. #Quote by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Mankind quotes by Geraldine Jewsbury
#35. What would become of the world without the Devil? Under all the different systems of religion that have guided or misguided the world for the last six thousand years, the Devil has been the grand scapegoat. He has had to bear the blame of every thing that has gone wrong. All the evil that gets committed is laid to his door, and he has, besides, the credit of hindering all the good that has never got done at all. If mankind were not thus one and all victims to the Devil, what an irredeemable set of scoundrels they would be obliged to confess themselves! #Quote by Geraldine Jewsbury
Mankind quotes by Carol P. Christ
#36. We need to build a new cooperative social order out beyond the principles of hierarchy, rule out competitiveness. Starting in the grass roots local units of human society where psychosocial polarization first began, we must create a living pattern of mutuality between men and women, between parents and children, among people in their social, economic, and political relationships and between mankind and the organic harmonies of nature. #Quote by Carol P. Christ
Mankind quotes by Patrick Soon-Shiong
#37. We need to and must protect privacy. But I think that people will be willing and even eager to share medical information about themselves for the greater good of mankind. #Quote by Patrick Soon-Shiong
Mankind quotes by M.Z.Riffi
#38. Before the telescope and the microscope were invented the mankind was wearing blinkers. #Quote by M.Z.Riffi
Mankind quotes by Ayn Rand
#39. The greatest threat to mankind and civilization is the spread of the totalitarian philosophy. Its best ally is not the devotion of its followers but the confusion of its enemies. To fight it, we must understand it. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Mankind quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#40. we came naked into the world and we will exit naked. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Mankind quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#41. When he realizes that he is not only worse than others, but that he is responsible to all men for all and everything, for all human sins, national and individual, only then the aim of our seclusion is attained. For know, dear ones, that every one of us is undoubtedly responsible for all men and everything on earth, not merely through the general sinfulness of creation, but each one personally for all mankind and every individual man. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Mankind quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#42. We believe no more in Bonaparte's fighting merely for the liberties of the seas than in Great Britain's fighting for the liberties of mankind. The object is the same, to draw to themselves the power, the wealth and the resources of other nations. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Mankind quotes by Herman Melville
#43. Queequeg explained to me that his world was very different from ours. However, one thing he learned quickly, was that within all groups of people there are kind men and there are unkind men. #Quote by Herman Melville
Mankind quotes by Richelle Mead
#44. Because there is no greater evil than ignorance and the destruction of genius. Ignorance has been responsible for more death, more bigotry, and more sin than any other force. It is the destroyer of mankind. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Mankind quotes by Franz Boas
#45. It is clear, from these considerations, that the three methods of classifying mankind-that according to physical characters, according to language, and according to culture-all reflect the historical development of races from different standpoints; and that the results of the three classifications are not comparable, because the historical facts do not affect the three classes of phenomena equally. A consideration of all these classes of facts is needed when we endeavour to reconstruct the early history of the races of mankind. #Quote by Franz Boas
Mankind quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#46. Wisdom alone is true ambition's aim, wisdom is the source of virtue and of fame; obtained with labour, for mankind employed, and then, when most you share it, best enjoyed. #Quote by Alfred North Whitehead
Mankind quotes by Karel Capek
#47. Everyone has the best of feelings towards mankind in general, but not towards the individual man. We'll kill men, but we want to save mankind. And that isn't right, your Reverence. The world will be an evil place as long as people don't believe in other people. #Quote by Karel Capek
Mankind quotes by Bob Marley
#48. Me only have one ambition, y'know. I only have one thing I really like to see happen. I like to see mankind live together - black, white, Chinese, everyone - that's all. #Quote by Bob Marley
Mankind quotes by John Shelby Spong
#49. As he becomes self-conscious, he's no longer part of nature. #Quote by John Shelby Spong
Mankind quotes by Susan Wiggs
#50. What a joy life is when you have made a close working partnership with Nature, helping her to produce for the benefit of mankind new forms, colors, and perfumes in flowers which were never known before; fruits in form, size, and flavor never before seen on this globe." -Luther Burbank. #Quote by Susan Wiggs
Mankind quotes by Isaac Newton
#51. 'Tis the temper of the hot and superstitious part of mankind in matters of religion ever to be fond of mysteries, and for that reason to like best what they understand least. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Mankind quotes by Jose Saramago
#52. Ah, in every age there is always some new wonder to astound mankind until they grow accustomed to it and lose interest. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Mankind quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#53. We are Darkness. We are Shadow.
We are the Ruler of the Night.
We, alone, stand between mankind and those who would see mankind destroyed. We are the Guardian
The Soulless Keepers. Our souls were cast out so that we would not forewarn the Daimons we pursue. By the time they see us coming, it's too late.
The Daimons and Apollites know us. They fear us. We are death to all those who prey upon the humans. Neither Human, nor Apollite, we exist beyond the realm of the Living, beyond the realm of the Dead
We are the Dark-Hunters.
And we are Eternal #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Mankind quotes by Jamake Highwater
#54. Art is a staple of mankind ... So urgent, so utterly linked with the pulse of feeling that it becomes the singular sign of life when every other aspect of civilization fails. #Quote by Jamake Highwater
Mankind quotes by William Lane Craig
#55. This is reality in a universe without God: there is no hope; there is no purpose. It reminds me of T.S. Eliot's haunting lines:
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.
What is true of mankind as a whole is true of each of us individually: we are here to no purpose. If there is no God, then our life is not fundamentally different from that of a dog. #Quote by William Lane Craig
Mankind quotes by Samuel Johnson
#56. No government power can be abused long. Mankind will not bear it ... There is a remedy in human nature against tyranny, that will keep us safe under every form of government. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Mankind quotes by Jack D. Zipes
#57. Fairy tales since the beginning of recorded time, and perhaps earlier, have been a means to conquer the terrors of mankind through metaphor. #Quote by Jack D. Zipes
Mankind quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#58. All men shall be my slaves! All women shall succumb to my charms! All mankind shall grovel at my feet and not know why! #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Mankind quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#59. The self-satisfied dogmatism with which mankind at each period of its history cherishes the delusion of the finality of existing modes of knowledge. #Quote by Alfred North Whitehead
Mankind quotes by R. Alan Woods
#60. The free-will of men and the sovereignty of God are operationally co-existent, neither Reality impunes the 'co-dependent' authority of the other.
R. Alan Woods [2012] #Quote by R. Alan Woods
Mankind quotes by Ayn Rand
#61. Faith is the wors curse of mankind, as the exact antithesis and enemy of thought. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Mankind quotes by Massey H. Shepherd
#62. The Gospel is not presented to mankind as an argument about religious principals. Nor is it offered as a philosophy of life. Christianity is a witness to certain facts; to events that have happened, to hopes that have been fulfilled, to realities that have been experienced, to a Person who has lived and died and been raised from the dead to reign forever. #Quote by Massey H. Shepherd
Mankind quotes by Charles Darwin
#63. Even people who aren't geniuses can outthink the rest of mankind if they develop certain thinking habits. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Mankind quotes by Plato
#64. A state arises, as I conceive, out of the needs of mankind; no one is self-sufficing, but all of us have many wants. #Quote by Plato
Mankind quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#65. Our adversaries consider that an activity which is neither aided by supplies, nor regulated by government, is an activity destroyed. We think just the contrary. Their faith is in the legislator, not in mankind; ours is in mankind, not in the legislator. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Mankind quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#66. The unique impression of Jesus upon mankind - whose name is not so much written as ploughed into the history of the world - is proof of the subtle virtue of this infusion. Jesus belonged to the race of prophets. He saw with open eyes the mystery of the soul. One man was true to what is in you and me. He, as I think, is the only soul in history who has appreciated the worth of man. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Mankind quotes by Franz Grillparzer
#67. Mankind is getting smarter every day. Actually, it only seems so. At least we are making progress. We're progressing, to be sure, ever more deeply into the forest. #Quote by Franz Grillparzer
Mankind quotes by L.V. Birdsong
#68. I hate mankind. I hate what we do to each other, how we wage war, how we 'fight' for peace, how we say we love each other then stab each other in the back. #Quote by L.V. Birdsong
Mankind quotes by Mikhail Gorbachev
#69. Jesus was the first socialist, the first to seek a better life for mankind. #Quote by Mikhail Gorbachev
Mankind quotes by G.I. Gurdjieff
#70. The crowd neither wants nor seeks knowledge, and the leaders of the crowd, in their own interests, try to strengthen its fear and dislike of everything new and unknown. The slavery in which mankind lives is based upon this fear. #Quote by G.I. Gurdjieff
Mankind quotes by Alexander Pope
#71. No writing is good that does not tend to better mankind in some way or other. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Mankind quotes by John Charles Pollock
#72. His ally was the age-old, unending human search for truth and security. In the first century as the twenty first, some were devout, some superstitious, others were frankly materialistic, even though in that age they paid lip service to the gods. Others, contemptuous of religion, believed only in mankind. But at heart, when disguises were torn away and defenses broken, lay the same anxieties and hopes. #Quote by John Charles Pollock
Mankind quotes by Alain De Botton
#73. Solitary though we may have become, we haven't of course given up all hope of forming relationships. In the lonely canyons of the modern city, there is no more honoured emotion than love. However, this is not the love of which religions speak, not the expansive, universal brotherhood of mankind; it is a more jealous, restricted and ultimately meaner variety. It is a romantic love which sends us on a maniacal quest for a single person with whom we hope to achieve a life-long and complete communion, one person in particular who will spare us any need for people in general. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Mankind quotes by Thomas Huxley
#74. It ought not to be unpleasant to say that which one honestly believes or disbelieves. That it so constantly is painful to do so, is quite enough obstacle to the progress of mankind in that most valuable of all qualities, honesty of word or of deed. #Quote by Thomas Huxley
Mankind quotes by Harry Harrison
#75. So mankind gobbled in a century all the world's resources that had taken millions of years to store up, and no one on the top gave a damn or listened to all the voices that were trying to warn them, they just let us overproduce and overconsume until now the oil is gone, the topsoil depleted and washed away, the trees chopped down, the animals extinct, the earth poisoned, and all we have to show for this is seven billion people fighting over the scraps that are left, living a miserable existence - and still breeding without control. So I say the time has come to stand up and be counted. #Quote by Harry Harrison
Mankind quotes by Kim Jong Il
#76. Karl Marx made a great contribution to the liberation cause of mankind, and because of his immortal exploits his name is still enshrined in the hearts of the working class and peoples of all countries. #Quote by Kim Jong Il
Mankind quotes by Charlie Munger
#77. Mankind invented a system to cope with the fact that we are so intrinsically lousy at manipulating numbers. It's called the graph. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Mankind quotes by John Adams
#78. I will insist the Hebrews have [contributed] more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations ... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern. #Quote by John Adams
Mankind quotes by Delma Pryce
#79. The Story Is Always There

Sometimes you don't need to talk to someone to see how they feel. You don't need to ask about their story. Some people have it written on their faces and you just have to take the time to read. #Quote by Delma Pryce
Mankind quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#80. 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
Mankind quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#81. And yet how simple it is: in one day, in one hour everything could be arranged at once! The chief thing is to love others like yourself, that's the chief thing, and that's everything; nothing else is wanted - you will find out at once how to arrange it all. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Mankind quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#82. Let India become alive by self-purification, that is self-restraint and self-denial, and she will be a boon to herself and mankind. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Mankind quotes by John R. Lott Jr.
#83. Are global temperatures rising? Surely, they were rising from the late 1970s to 1998, but 'there has been no net global warming since 1998.' Indeed, the more recent numbers show that there is now evidence of significant cooling [ ... ] Mankind is responsible for just a fraction of one percent of the effect from greenhouse gases, and greenhouse gases are not responsible for most of what causes warming (e.g., the Sun). #Quote by John R. Lott Jr.
Mankind quotes by Adam M. Grant
#84. The greatest tragedy of mankind," Dalio says, "comes from the inability of people to have thoughtful disagreement to find out what's true." Through #Quote by Adam M. Grant
Mankind quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#85. There is but one means available to improve the material conditions of mankind: to accelerate the growth of capital accumulated as against the growth in population. The greater the amount of capital invested per head of the worker, the more and better goods can be produced and consumed. This is what capitalism, the much abused profit system, has brought about and brings about daily anew. Yet, most present-day governments and political parties are eager to destroy this system. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Mankind quotes by Daniel Defoe
#86. I should always find that the calamities of life were shared among the upper and lower part of mankind, but that the middle station had the fewest disasters, ... #Quote by Daniel Defoe
Mankind quotes by Dixie Lee Ray
#87. Mankind is considered (by the radical environmentalists) the lowest and the meanest of all species and is blamed for everything. #Quote by Dixie Lee Ray
Mankind quotes by Takayuki Yamaguchi
#88. He had been dazzled. Because of the dazzling brightness, he had had to kill [Seigen]. All who had encountered Seigen had had their hearts stolen by that brightness. That envy had turned to malice. #Quote by Takayuki Yamaguchi
Mankind quotes by Honore De Balzac
#89. Numbers are intellectual witnesses that belong only to mankind. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Mankind quotes by Charles Galton Darwin
#90. 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
Mankind quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#91. The goal for most people should not be to feel better, but to get better at feeling. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Mankind quotes by J. Robert Oppenheimer
#92. But when you come right down to it, the reason that we did this job is because it was an organic necessity. If you are a scientist you cannot stop such a thing. If you are a scientist you believe that it is good to find out how the world works; that it is good to find out what the realities are; that it is good to turn over to mankind at large the greatest possible power to control the world and to deal with it according to its lights and values. Regarding the atomic bomb project. #Quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer
Mankind quotes by George Eliot
#93. Ingenious philosophers tell you, perhaps, that the great work of the steam-engine is to create leisure for mankind. Do not believe them: it only creates a vacuum for eager thought to rush in. Even idleness is eager now - eager for amusement; prone to excursion-trains, art museums, periodical literature, and exciting novels; prone even to scientific theorizing and cursory peeps through microscopes. Old Leisure was quite a different personage. He only read one newspaper, innocent of leaders, and was free from that periodicity of sensations which we call post-time. He was a contemplative, rather stout gentleman, of excellent digestion; of quiet perceptions, undiseased by hypothesis; happy in his inability to know the causes of things, preferring the things themselves. He lived chiefly in the country, among pleasant seats and homesteads, and was fond of sauntering by the fruit-tree wall and scenting the apricots when they were warmed by the morning sunshine, or of sheltering himself under the orchard boughs at noon, when the summer pears were falling. He knew nothing of weekday services, and thought none the worse of the Sunday sermon if it allowed him to sleep from the text to the blessing; liking the afternoon service best, because the prayers were the shortest, and not ashamed to say so; for he had an easy, jolly conscience, broad-backed like himself, and able to carry a great deal of beer or port-wine, not being made squeamish by doubts and qualms and lofty aspirations. #Quote by George Eliot
Mankind quotes by Joseph Conrad
#94. We wander in our thousands over the
face of the earth, the illustrious and the obscure, earning beyond the
seas our fame, our money, or only a crust of bread; but it seems to me
that for each of us going home must be like going to render an account.
We return to face our superiors, our kindred, our friends
those whom we
obey, and those whom we love; but even they who have neither, the most
free, lonely, irresponsible and bereft of ties,
even those for whom
home holds no dear face, no familiar voice,
even they have to meet the
spirit that dwells within the land, under its sky, in its air, in its
valleys, and on its rises, in its fields, in its waters and its trees
a
mute friend, judge, and inspirer. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Mankind quotes by Anonymous
#95. 13No temptation[27] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[28] beyond what you can bear. #Quote by Anonymous
Mankind quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#96. That same spirit which makes us love the praise of men makes us dread the threats of men. You cannot be pleased with the adulation of mankind without becoming fearful of tour censure. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Mankind quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#97. Who, born for the universe, narrow'd his mind, And to party gave up what was meant for mankind; Though fraught with all learning, yet straining his throat To persuade Tommy Townshend to lend him a vote. Who too deep for his hearers still went on refining, And thought of convincing while they thought of dining: Though equal to all things, for all things unfit; Too nice for a statesman, too proud for a wit. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Mankind quotes by Todd Coburn
#98. Jesus has chosen to entrust us with the responsibility of reflecting His light to mankind. #Quote by Todd Coburn
Mankind quotes by Vance Havner
#99. When God's people are removed from this earth, you might as well try to dam up Niagara Falls with toothpicks as to stem the flood of lawlessness that will engulf mankind. Thank God for the restraining Spirit today! #Quote by Vance Havner
Mankind quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#100. Nonviolence, applied to very large masses of mankind, is a new experiment in the history of the world. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Mankind quotes by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
#101. The days are gone when a country can issue orders to other peoples. Today, mankind needs culture, ideas and logic. #Quote by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Mankind quotes by Christopher Morley
#102. A gathering of booksellers is a pleasant sanhedrim to attend. The members of this ancient craft bear mannerisms and earmarks just as definitely recognizable as those of the cloak and suit business or any other trade. They are likely to be a little - shall we say - worn at the bindings, as becomes men who have forsaken worldly profit to pursue a noble calling ill rewarded in cash. They are possibly a trifle embittered, which is an excellent demeanour for mankind in the face of inscrutable heaven. Long experience with publishers' salesmen makes them suspicious of books praised between the courses of a heavy meal. #Quote by Christopher Morley
Mankind quotes by Charles Frazier
#103. Monroe had in fact preached that God was not at all such a one as ourselves, not one to be temperamentally inclined to tread ragefully upon us until our blood flew up and stained all His white raiment, but rather that He looked on both the best and worst of mankind with weary, bemused pity. #Quote by Charles Frazier
Mankind quotes by Edmund Burke
#104. You would have had a protected, satisfied, laborious, and obedient people, taught to seek and to recognize the happiness that is to be found by virtue in all conditions; in which consists the true moral equality of mankind, and not in that monstrous fiction, which, by inspiring false ideas and vain expectations into men destined to travel in the obscure walk of laborious life, serves only to aggravate and embitter that real inequality, which it never can remove; and which the order of civil life establishes as much for the benefit of those whom it must leave in a humble state, as those whom it is able to exalt to a condition more splendid, but not more happy. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Mankind quotes by John Kramer
#105. Man must be free or he will not survive. #Quote by John Kramer
Mankind quotes by Socrates
#106. ...I do not believe that the law of God permits a better man to be harmed by a worse. No doubt my accuser might put me to death or have me banished or deprived of civic rights; but even if he thinks, as he probably does (and others to, I dare say), that these are great calamities, I do not think so... For let me tell you, gentlemen, that to be afraid of death is only another form of thinking that one is wise when one is not; it is to think that one knows what one does not know. No one knows with regard to death whether it is not really the greatest blessing that can happen to a man; but people dread it as though they were certain that it is the greatest evil; and this ignorance, which thinks that it knows what it does not, must surely be ignorance most culpable. This, I take it, gentlemen, is the degree, and this is the nature of my advantage over the rest of mankind; and if I were to claim to be wiser than my neighbour in any respect, it would be in this: that not possessing any real knowledge of what comes after death, I am also conscious that I do not possess it. But I do know that to do wrong and to disobey my superior, whether God or man, is wicked and dishonourable; and so I shall never feel more fear or aversion for something which, for all I know, may really be a blessing, than for those evils which I know to be evils. #Quote by Socrates
Mankind quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#107. Mankind are in the end always governed by superiority of intellectual faculties, and none are more sensible of this than the military profession. When, on my return from Italy, I assumed the dress of the Institute, and associated with men of science, I knew what I was doing: I was sure of not being misunderstood by the lowest drummer boy in the army. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Mankind quotes by Vishal Chipkar
#108. Our planet for Superhumans.

Let us change the name of our planet as Divine Home,
Let us compel the higher consciousness to descend upon our divine home, Let us change the United Nations to United Humans. When the self ignorance, ego and immaturity is removed from mankind, politics and religion will no more exist,
When politics is removed, borders won't be required, When the religion is removed, hatred, misbelief and mass ignorance will not exist, god as dual wont exist.
Let us live on the 29% earth as one Home, the divine home.
Welcome Superhumans". #Quote by Vishal Chipkar
Mankind quotes by Bruce Hampton
#109. Wolves, like all living things, had been created by God with "a purpose," declared Shoemaker, and thus have "an inherent right to live, to be protected by mankind. #Quote by Bruce Hampton
Mankind quotes by James Madison
#110. It is to the press mankind are indebted for having dispelled the clouds which so long encompassed religion, for disclosing her genuine lustre, and disseminating her salutary doctrines. #Quote by James Madison
Mankind quotes by Voltaire
#111. To become a patriot,
one must become an enemy to mankind. #Quote by Voltaire
Mankind quotes by Kristian Birkeland
#112. A very few lonely pioneers make their way to high places never before visited ... they create the living conditions of mankind and the majority are living on their work. #Quote by Kristian Birkeland
Mankind quotes by Samuel Beckett
#113. Weary with my weariness, white last moon, sole regret, not even. To be dead, before her, on her, with her, and turn, dead on dead, about poor mankind, and never have to die anymore, from among the living. Not even, not even that. My moon was here below, far below, the little I was able to desire. And one day, soon, soon, one earthlit night, beneath the earth, a dying being will say, like me, in the earthlight, Not even, not even that, and die, without having been able to find regret. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Mankind quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#114. As we know, priests make the most evil enemies – but why? Because they are the most powerless. Out of this powerlessness, their hate swells into something huge and uncanny to a most intellectual and poisonous level. The greatest haters in world history, and the most intelligent, have always been priests: – nobody else's intelligence stands a chance against the intelligence of priestly revenge. The history of mankind would be far too stupid a thing if it had not had the intellect of the powerless injected into it... #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Mankind quotes by Tryon Edwards
#115. Whoever in prayer can say, 'Our Father', acknowledges and should feel the brotherhood of the whole race of mankind. #Quote by Tryon Edwards
Mankind quotes by Joseph Conrad
#116. The cabman looked at the pieces of silver, which, appearing very minute in his big, grimy palm, symbolised the insignificant results which reward the ambitious courage and toil of a mankind whose day is short on this earth of evil. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Mankind quotes by Pliny The Elder
#117. Now, that the sovereign power and deity, whatsoever it is, should have regard of mankind, is a toy and vanity worthy to be laughed at. #Quote by Pliny The Elder
Mankind quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#118. All the great religions of the world inculcate equality and brotherhood of mankind and the virtue of toleration. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Mankind quotes by John Stuart Mill
#119. Such is the facility with which mankind believe at one and the same time things inconsistent with one another, and so few are those who draw from what they receive as truths, any consequences but those recommended to them by their feelings, that multitudes have held the undoubting belief in an Omnipotent Author of Hell, and have nevertheless identified that being with the one best conception they were able to form of perfect goodness. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Mankind quotes by Hal Borland
#120. Of all the everyday plants of the earth, grass is the least pretentious and the most important to mankind. It clothes the earth is an unmistakable way. Directly or indirectly it provides the bulk of man's food, his meat, his bread, every scrap of his cereal diet. Without grass we would all starve, we and all our animals. And what a dismal place this world would be! #Quote by Hal Borland
Mankind quotes by M. Scott Peck
#121. For godhood and the hope for mankind, and within each of us is the original sin of laziness, the ever-present force of entropy pushing us back to childhood, to the womb and to the swamps from which we have evolved. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Mankind quotes by John F. Kennedy
#122. Mankind must put an end to war before war puts an end to mankind. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Mankind quotes by Elie Wiesel
#123. It all happened so fast. The ghetto. The deportation. The sealed cattle car. The fiery altar upon which the history of our people and the future of mankind were meant to be sacrificed. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Mankind quotes by John Boyd Orr
#124. In the last fifty years science has advanced more than in the 2,000 previous years and given mankind greater powers over the forces of nature than the ancients ascribed to their gods. #Quote by John Boyd Orr
Mankind quotes by Bill Vaughan
#125. Most new things are not good, and die an early death; but those which push themselves forward and by slow degrees force themselves on the attention of mankind are the unconscious productions of human wisdom, and must have honest consideration, and must not be made the subject of unreasoning prejudice. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Mankind quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#126. who dignify their paltry employments, and sometimes even their passions, with pompous titles, representing them to mankind as gigantic achievements performed for their welfare and glory. But the man who humbly acknowledges the vanity of all this, who observes with what pleasure the thriving citizen converts his little garden into a paradise, and how patiently even the poor man pursues his weary way under his burden, and how all wish equally to behold the light of the sun a little longer - yes, such a man is at peace, and creates his own world within himself; and he is also happy, because he is a man. And then, however limited his sphere, he still preserves in his bosom the sweet feeling of liberty, and knows that he can quit his prison whenever he likes. May #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Mankind quotes by B.F. Skinner
#127. Twenty-five hundred years ago it might have been said that man understood himself as well as any other part of the world. Today he is the thing he understands least. #Quote by B.F. Skinner
Mankind quotes by Jean-Baptiste Say
#128. Nothing is more dangerous in practice, than an obstinate, unbending adherence to a system, particularly in its application to the wants and errors of mankind. #Quote by Jean-Baptiste Say
Mankind quotes by Al-Jahiz
#129. Like the crow among mankind are the Zanj [African Blacks] for they are the worst of men and the most vicious of creatures in character and temperament. #Quote by Al-Jahiz
Mankind quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#130. All men have a soul. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Mankind quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#131. My urgent advice to you would be, not only always to think first of America, but always, also, to think first of humanity. You do not love humanity if you seek to divide humanity into jealous camps. Humanity can be welded together only by love, by sympathy, by justice, not by jealousy and hatred. I am sorry for the man who seeks to make personal capital out of the passions of his fellowmen. He has lost touch with the ideal of America. For America was created to unit mankind ... #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Mankind quotes by Benjamin Rush
#132. The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty; and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments ... We waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity, by means of the Bible; for this divine book, above all others favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws. #Quote by Benjamin Rush
Mankind quotes by Thomas Bernhard
#133. He abhorred people who said things that hadn't been thought through, thus he abhorred almost all mankind. #Quote by Thomas Bernhard
Mankind quotes by Adolf Hitler
#134. By helping to raise man above the level of bestial vegetation, faith contributes in reality to the securing and safeguarding of his existence. Take away from present-day mankind its education-based, religious-dogmatic principles- or, practically speaking, ethical-moral principles- by abolishing this religious education, but without replacing it by an equivalent, and the result will be a grave shock to the foundations of their existence. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Mankind quotes by E.F. Schumacher
#135. After all, for mankind as a whole there are no exports. We did not start developing by obtaining foreign exchange from Mars or the moon. Mankind is a closed society. #Quote by E.F. Schumacher
Mankind quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#136. The man who coerces another not to eat fish commits more violence than he who eats it. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Mankind quotes by Lewis Mumford
#137. Kings have always boasted that their slightest wishes were commands. The classic proof of their power and their success was their command of limitless amounts of food and drink, limitless quantities of clothes and jewels: the services of innumerable slaves, servants, and officials: limitless sensual stimulations, and not least, limitless opportunities for sexual intercourse, for even here erotic delight was measured in gross quantitative terms. The affluence that once was monopolized by the king and his court is now being held up as the ultimate gift of the power system to mankind at large. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Mankind quotes by Suzy Kassem
#138. Why do people fear hell so much? With so much hatred and division amongst mankind, we are already in it. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Mankind quotes by Don Pendleton
#139. Along with everything else, I know that there is a beauty in mankind. It is a beauty that no ugliness, no violence, no hatred and no evil can ever completely erase. I have also learned there is a majesty in mankind. It is a majesty that no sickness, no suffering, no want or lack, no poverty and no pain can ever
truly subjugate. #Quote by Don Pendleton
Mankind quotes by Sigmund Freud
#140. Observe the difference between your attitude to illusions and mine. You have to defend the religious illusion with all your might. If it becomes discredited - and indeed the threat to it is great enough - then your world collapses. There is nothing left for you but to despair of everything, of civilization and the future of mankind. From that bondage I am, we are, free. Since we are prepared to renounce a good part of our infantile wishes, we can bear it if a few of our expectations turn out to be illusions. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Mankind quotes by Carl Sandburg
#141. Not often in the story of mankind does a man arrive on earth who is both steel and velvet, who is as hard as rock and soft as drifting fog, who holds in his heart and mind the paradox of terrible storm and peace unspeakable and perfect. #Quote by Carl Sandburg
Mankind quotes by Blaise Pascal
#142. Mankind suffers from two excesses: to exclude reason, and to live by nothing but reason. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Mankind quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#143. All that mankind has done, thought, gained, or been; it is lying as in magic preservation in the pages of books. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Mankind quotes by Thomas Love Peacock
#144. And as for the human mind, I deny that it is the same in all men. I hold that there is every variety of natural capacity from the idiot to Newton and Shakespeare; the mass of mankind, midway between these extremes, being blockheads of different degrees; education leaving them pretty nearly as it found them, with this single difference, that it gives a fixed direction to their stupidity, a sort of incurable wry neck to the thing they call their understanding. #Quote by Thomas Love Peacock
Mankind quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#145. When they the American soldiers came, they found fit comrades for their courage and their devotion ... Joining hands with them, the men of America gave the greatest of all gifts - the gift of life and the gift of spirit. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Mankind quotes by Francesco Guicciardini
#146. How much luckier than all the rest of mankind are the astrologers who, if they tell one truth among a hundred lies, obtain so much credit that even their lies are believed. #Quote by Francesco Guicciardini
Mankind quotes by Christian D. Larson
#147. You can lead mankind into the gold mines of the mind and into the diamond fields of the soul, and the secret lies in the words you speak. #Quote by Christian D. Larson
Mankind quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#148. My concern is that you will face some delays and disappointments at this formative time in your life and feel that no one else in the history of mankind has ever had your problems or faced those difficulties. And when some of those challenges come, you will have the temptation common to us all to say, "This task is too hard. The burden is too heavy. The path is too long." And so you decide to quit, simply to give up. Now to terminate certain kinds of tasks is not only acceptable but often very wise. If you are, for example, a flagpole sitter then I say, "Come on down." But in life's most crucial and telling tasks, my plea is to stick with it, to persevere, to hang in and hang on, and to reap your reward. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland
Mankind quotes by Mikhail Gorbachev
#149. It would be naive to think that the problems plaguing mankind today can be solved with means and methods which were applied or seemed to work in the past. #Quote by Mikhail Gorbachev
Mankind quotes by Pietro Metastasio
#150. How full of error is the judgment of mankind! They wonder at results when they are ignorant of the reasons #Quote by Pietro Metastasio
Mankind quotes by Richard Steele
#151. Compassion does not only refine and civilize human nature, but has something in it more pleasing and agreeable, than what can be met with in such an indolent happiness, such an indifference to mankind, as that in which the stoics placed their wisdom. As love is the most delightful passion, pity is nothing else but love softened by a degree of sorrow: In short, it is a kind of pleasing anguish, anguish as well as generous sympathy, that knits mankind together, and blends them in the same common lot. #Quote by Richard Steele
Mankind quotes by John Updike
#152. Fiction is nothing less than the subtlest instrument for self-examination and self-display that Mankind has invented yet. #Quote by John Updike
Mankind quotes by Criss Jami
#153. Of all the major religions, or lack thereof, the atheist's is one of the best pretenders: his foundation for all existences, as well as moral behaviors for the permanent good of mankind, begins at science but ends at himself, the Napoleon complex of both intelligence and imagination. On the other hand the anti-theist wouldn't survive without a deity beyond himself to hunt. He doesn't pretend, he simply nullifies his own position. #Quote by Criss Jami
Mankind quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#154. I believe in humanity - not just you or Mother, but all mankind. Do I sound like a preacher or a cheap politician making a pretty speech? This is not what I intend to do ...
I believe in life, that it is sweet and that, for all its occasional bitterness, we-man, that is-are headed toward something better - fulfillment. There is much shame, however, and so much hypocrisy around us and these inhibit our fulfillment as human beings. #Quote by F. Sionil Jose
Mankind quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#155. Thy designs are a bottomless pit. How can I descend into this pit to examine it? Thou lookest thousands of years into the future and then Thou judgest. What today seems an injustice to man's minute brain becomes, thousands of years hence, the mother of man's salvation. If what today we term injustice did not exist, perhaps true justice would never come to mankind. #Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis
Mankind quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#156. Hero-worship exists, has existed, and will forever exist, universally, among mankind. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Mankind quotes by Sharad Vivek Sagar
#157. That moment when I've lost everything I've ever dreamt of, ever craved for, and put in my everything away for, I would try, despite it all, till my last breath to go down the history of mankind as the man who tried, who sacrificed, who strived and who persevered the hardest in the most honest and toughest way. #Quote by Sharad Vivek Sagar
Mankind quotes by David Hume
#158. Eloquence, when at its highest pitch, leaves little room for reason or reflection; but addressing itself entirely to the fancy or the affections, captivates the willing hearers, and subdues their understanding. Happily, this pitch it seldom attains. But what a Tully or a Demosthenes could scarcely effect over a Roman or Athenian audience, every Capuchin, every itinerant or stationary teacher can perform over the generality of mankind, and in a higher degree, by touching such gross and vulgar passions. #Quote by David Hume
Mankind quotes by Frank Kelly GFDS
#159. Innovation cannot be spotted it grabs you at 3 o'clock in the morning and won't let you go till you get up and make it a drink and begin to create it, be open to change at all times mankind hasn't thought of everything every day is a new opportunity to make things better #Quote by Frank Kelly GFDS
Mankind quotes by Mercy Otis Warren
#160. The bulk of mankind have indeed, in all countries in their turn, been made the prey of ambition. #Quote by Mercy Otis Warren
Mankind quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#161. History, that is, the unconscious, common, swarm life of mankind uses every moment of the life of kings as an instrument for its own ends #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Mankind quotes by Rick Warren
#162. Actually, this is a good thing, because it forces us to recognize our need for each other. It's part of God's plan. We were created to live in community. We are designed by God for relationships. The very first thing God said to mankind was "It is not good for the man to be alone" (Genesis 2:18). God hates loneliness. So he made us to need each other. #Quote by Rick Warren
Mankind quotes by Antiphanes
#163. Be not grieved above the measure for thy deceased loved ones. They are not dead, but have only finished the journey which it is necessary for every one of us to take. We ourselves must go to that great place of reception in which they are all of them assembled, and in this general rendezvous of mankind, live together in another state of being. #Quote by Antiphanes
Mankind quotes by Ted Dekker
#164. Prayer may just be the most powerful tool mankind has."

Mankind quotes by Duane Hewitt
#165. I am increasingly convinced that humankind's best future lies within the power of the imagination, with knowledge following closely in step. #Quote by Duane Hewitt
Mankind quotes by Ibrahim Ibrahim
#166. To be initiated into Belief is neither done through abstaining from certain types of tangible substances (e.g., Alcohol) nor through abiding with certain dress codes (e.g., Head Cover), it is something only the baby completely -yet intrinsically- understands. A Truth that repelled Pharaoh into the dustbin of history and his Jew subjects into the fringes of mankind. #Quote by Ibrahim Ibrahim
Mankind quotes by Chris Dietzel
#167. The power of mankind has always been in overlooking the finality of things and holding onto optimism even when doing so seems foolish. #Quote by Chris Dietzel
Mankind quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#168. Love from its very nature must be transitory. To seek for a secret that would render it constant would be as wild a search as for the philosopher's stone or the grand panacea: and the discovery would be equally useless, or rather pernicious to mankind. The most holy band of society is friendship. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Mankind quotes by James Madison
#169. [The Republican Party] consists of those who, believing in the doctrine that mankind are capable of governing themselves and hating hereditary power as an insult to the reason and an outrage to the rights of men, are naturally offended at every public measure that does not appeal to the understanding and to the general interest of the community. #Quote by James Madison
Mankind quotes by Gyan Nagpal
#170. Mankind, as history tells us over and over again, seeks the least painful solution and, as a result, ends up exchanging one problem for
another #Quote by Gyan Nagpal
Mankind quotes by Frank B. Kellogg
#171. There is no short and easy road, no magic cure for those ills which have afflicted mankind from the dawn of history. #Quote by Frank B. Kellogg
Mankind quotes by Benjamin Silliman
#172. Astronomy is, not without reason, regarded, by mankind, as the sublimest of the natural sciences. Its objects so frequently visible, and therefore familiar, being always remote and inaccessible, do not lose their dignity. #Quote by Benjamin Silliman
Mankind quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#173. Mankind has invested more than four million years of evolution in the attempt to avoid physical exertion. Now a group of backward-thinking atavists mounted on foot-powered pairs of Hula-Hoops would have us pumping our legs, gritting our teeth, and searing our lungs as though we were being chased across the Pleistocene savanna by saber-toothed tigers. Think of the hopes, the dreams, the effort, the brilliance, the pure force of will that, over the eons, has gone into the creation of the Cadillac Coupe de Ville. Bicycle riders would have us throw all this on the ash heap of history. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Mankind quotes by John Stuart Mill
#174. I have a hundred times heard him say, that all ages and nations have represented their gods as wicked, in a constantly increasing progression; that mankind have gone on adding trait after trait till they reached the most perfect conception of wickedness which the human mind could devise, and have called this God, and prostrated themselves before it. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Mankind quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#175. Love's hearts are faithful, but not fond,
Bound for the just, but not beyond;
Not glad, as the low-loving herd,
Of self in other still preferred,
But they have heartily designed
The benefit of broad mankind.
And they serve men austerely,
After their own genius, clearly,
Without a false humility. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Mankind quotes by Aleksandra Layland
#176. He believed with all his heart that we should spend our lives in happiness and service, in joy and work, in kindness and in love, and he lived... and died... what he believed. #Quote by Aleksandra Layland
Mankind quotes by David Hume
#177. Justice is a moral virtue, merely because it has that tendency to the good of mankind, and indeed is nothing but an artificial invention to that purpose. The same may be said of allegiance, of the laws of nations, of modesty, and of good manners. All these are mere human contrivances for the interest of society. #Quote by David Hume
Mankind quotes by Harry S. Truman
#178. Our efforts have brought new hope to all mankind. We have beaten back despair and defeatism. We have saved a number of countries from losing their liberty. Hundreds of millions of people all over the world now agree with us, that we need not have war-that we can have peace. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Mankind quotes by Oswald Mosley
#179. Anyone who knows how difficult it is to keep a secret among three men - particularly if they are married - knows how absurd is the idea of a worldwide secret conspiracy consciously controlling all mankind by its financial power; in real, clear analysis. #Quote by Oswald Mosley
Mankind quotes by James G. Frazer
#180. In course of time the slow advance of knowledge, which has dispelled so many cherished illusions, convinced at least the more thoughtful portion of mankind that the alterations of summer and winter, of spring and autumn, were not merely the result of their own magical rites, but that some deeper cause, some mightier power, was at work behind the shifting scenes of nature. #Quote by James G. Frazer
Mankind quotes by Shigeru Yoshida
#181. We pray that henceforth not only Japan but all mankind may know the blessings of harmony and progress. #Quote by Shigeru Yoshida
Mankind quotes by Timothy Pina
#182. LOVE Is The Key Element To The Existence Of Humanity!
With It ... Mankind Will Exist For Eternity.
Without It ... Mankind Will Cease To Exist! #Quote by Timothy Pina
Mankind quotes by Will Durant
#183. Read, think well of mankind, go to our libraries and rejoice. #Quote by Will Durant
Mankind quotes by Alfred Korzybski
#184. Similarities are read into nature by our nervous system, and so are structurally less fundamental than differences. Less fundamental, but no less important, as life and 'intelligence' would be totally impossible without abstracting. It becomes clear that the problem which has so excited the s.r. of the people of the United States of America and added so much to the merriment of mankind, 'Is the evolution a 'fact' or a 'theory'?, is simply silly. Father and son are never identical - that surely is a structural 'fact' - so there is no need to worry about still higher abstractions, like 'man' and 'monkey'. That the fanatical and ignorant attack on the theory of evolution should have occured may be pathetic, but need concern us little, as such ignorant attacks are always liable to occur. But that biologists should offer 'defences' based on the confusions of orders of abstractiobs, and that 'philosophers' should have failed to see the simple dependence is rather sad. The problems of 'evolution' are verbal and have nothing to do with life as such, which is made up all through of different individuals, 'similarity' being structurally a manufactured article, produced by the nervous system of the observer. #Quote by Alfred Korzybski
Mankind quotes by Robin Marantz Henig
#185. Angels, demons, spirits, wizards, gods and witches have peppered folk religions since mankind first started telling stories. #Quote by Robin Marantz Henig
Mankind quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#186. I read up all about bishops in our anarchist pamphlets, in Superstition the Vampire and Priests of Prey. I certainly understood from them that bishops are strange and terrible old men keeping a cruel secret from mankind. I was misinformed. When on my first appearing in episcopal gaiters in a drawing-room I cried out in a voice of thunder, 'Down! down! presumptuous human reason!' they found out in some way that I was not a bishop at all. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Mankind quotes by William Shakespeare
#187. I am misanthropos, and hate mankind, For thy part, I do wish thou wert a dog, That I might love thee something. #Quote by William Shakespeare

Mankind quotes by Debasish Mridha
#192. Kindness, not rituals, is mankind's greatest prayer. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Mankind quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#193. Moral philosophy is nothing else but the science of what is good, and evil, in the conversation, and society of mankind. Good, and evil, are names that signify our appetites, and aversions; which in different tempers, customs, and doctrines of men, are different. #Quote by Thomas Hobbes
Mankind quotes by George Santayana
#194. It would be easy, however, to exaggerate the havoc wrought by such artificial conditions. The monotony we observe in mankind must not be charged to the oppressive influence of circumstances crushing the individual soul. It is not society's fault that most men seem to miss their vocation. Most men have no vocation; and society, in imposing on them some chance language, some chance religion, and some chance career, first plants an ideal in their bosoms and insinuates into them a sort of racial or professional soul. Their only character is composed of the habits they have been led to acquire. Some little propensities betrayed in childhood may very probably survive; one man may prove by his dying words that he was congenitally witty, another tender, another brave.But these native qualities will simply have added an ineffectual tint to some typical existence or other; and the vast majority will remain, as Schopenhauer said, Fabrikwaaren der Natur. #Quote by George Santayana

Mankind quotes by Henry Miller
#197. I could put up with heartbreaks and abortions and busted romances, but I had to have something under my belt to carry on, and I wanted something nourishing, something appetizing. I felt exactly like Jesus Christ would have felt if he had been taken down from the cross and not permitted to die in the flesh. I am sure that the shock of crucifixion would have been so great that he would have suffered a complete amnesia as regards humanity. I am certain that after his wounds had healed he wouldn't have given a damn about the tribulations of mankind but would have fallen with the greatest relish upon a fresh cup of coffee and a slice of toast, assuming he could have had it. #Quote by Henry Miller
Mankind quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#198. I have very carefully studied Islam and the life of its Prophet (PBUH). I have done so both as a student of history and as a critic. And I have come to conclusion that Muhammad (PBUH) was indeed a great man and a deliverer and benefactor of mankind which was till then writhing under the most agonising Pain. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Mankind quotes by Sigmund Freud
#199. Humanity has in the course of time had to endure from the hands of science two great outrages upon its naive self-love. The first was when it realized that our earth was not the center of the universe, but only a tiny speck in a world-system of a magnitude hardly conceivable; this is associated in our minds with the name of Copernicus, although Alexandrian doctrines taught something very similar. The second was when biological research robbed man of his peculiar privilege of having been specially created, and relegated him to a descent from the animal world, implying an ineradicable animal nature in him: this transvaluation has been accomplished in our own time upon the instigation of Charles Darwin, Wallace, and their predecessors, and not without the most violent opposition from their contemporaries. But man's craving for grandiosity is now suffering the third and most bitter blow from present-day psychological research which is endeavoring to prove to the ego of each one of us that he is not even master in his own house, but that he must remain content with the veriest scraps of information about what is going on unconsciously in his own mind. We psycho-analysts were neither the first nor the only ones to propose to mankind that they should look inward; but it appears to be our lot to advocate it most insistently and to support it by empirical evidence which touches every man closely. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Mankind quotes by Elie Wiesel
#200. Why did I write it? Did I write it so as not to go mad or, on the contrary, to go mad in order to understand the nature of madness, the immense, terrifying madness that had erupted in history and in the conscience of mankind? Was it to leave behind a legacy of words, of memories, to help prevent history from repeating itself? Or was it simply to preserve a record of the ordeal I endured as an adolescent, at an age when one's knowledge of death and evil should be limited to what one discovers in literature? There #Quote by Elie Wiesel
