Violence And Humans quotes by Stephen Richards
#2. I'd only gone and whacked his front teeth out and they'd stuck in my hand, I still have the scar to this very day. A few weeks later, I got banged up for it; he never went to the police until two weeks later. Somebody had put him wise about getting compensation from the Criminal Injuries Board. Anyway, the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) kicked it in to touch as a 'no go' case. #Quote by Stephen Richards

Violence And Humans quotes by Colin Thubron
#4. Sometimes I feel it is best to experience as little as possible. I have become so accustomed to the sight of blood that this afternoon I witnessed the execution of two soldiers for cowardice. All that occurred to me was that their severed heads went rolling about just like dice. This only goes to show what I have always held: that horrors do not sharpen but blunt the senses. An old friend once set above his vestibule door the blood-soaked cuirass in which his father was killed. He put it there, he said, as a perpetual reminder of the horror of violence. And was he reminded? The first time he passed the vestibule, yes. The second time, maybe. The third time not at all, and thereafter he grew used to it, and was later killed in an amphitheatre riot with his fingers on another man's throat. #Quote by Colin Thubron

Violence And Humans quotes by Rollo May
#7. We define religion as the assumption that life has meaning. Religion, or lack of it, is shown not in some intellectual or verbal formulations but in one's total orientation to life. Religion is whatever the individual takes to be his ultimate concern. One's religious attitude is to be found at that point where he has a conviction that there are values in human existence worth living and dying for. #Quote by Rollo May
Violence And Humans quotes by Charlee Jacob
#8. Show me life as I've learned it:blood and guts,violence and sex. #Quote by Charlee Jacob
Violence And Humans quotes by Alice Boyes
#9. Accept That You Often Won't Know Why Other People Have Acted in a Particular Way

Humans like to have explanations for why things happen. When we don't have one, we tend to invent something. Sometimes the explanations involve personalizing. Personalizing is when you take something more personally than it was meant in reality. If a work colleague is rude and abrupt, you might think it's because she's annoyed at you, and not consider that it might be because she's feeling flustered by something unrelated. Anxiety-prone people who don't like uncertainty can be especially likely to ruminate about why something has happened and come up with explanations involving excessive personalizing. To overcome this, you need to learn to tolerate that you're not always going to know why people behave the way they do.
Recognize that if someone acts strangely, there's a very high likelihood that the behavior has something to do with what's happening for that person, rather than being about you, and you're probably never going to know what the reason was. You can save yourself hours or days of rumination and upset if you can tolerate the idea of not knowing. While there might be some cases in which you try to find out what the issue was, in many cases your only real choice is to let it go. Try to arrive at this insight before you've done hours of ruminating!
Experiment: Was there a time recently when in retrospect it would've been better to accept not knowing the reason for s #Quote by Alice Boyes
Violence And Humans quotes by Paul Keating
#10. I think the rise of China is one of the great events of all economic and human history, and I think this will be overwhelmingly a positive thing for the region and the world. #Quote by Paul Keating
Violence And Humans quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#11. They are the humans who are intelligent enough to have insight of every single molecular underpinning of the warmth of love, and yet not let that factual knowledge ruin the romance in a relationship. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Violence And Humans quotes by Dennis Potter
#12. The strangest thing that human speech and human writing can do is create a metaphor. That is an amazing leap, is it not? #Quote by Dennis Potter
Violence And Humans quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#13. Those of us who write and study history are accustomed to its approximations and ambiguities. This is why we do not take literally the tenth-hand reports of frightened and illiterate peasants who claim to have seen miracles or to have had encounters with messiahs and prophets and redeemers who were, like them, mere humans. And this is also why we will never submit to dictation from those who display a fanatical belief in certainty and revelation. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Violence And Humans quotes by Jeffrey Fry
#14. What differentiates humans from all other creatures is the deep and unquenching desire to be appreciated. #Quote by Jeffrey Fry
Violence And Humans quotes by Krystell Lake
#15. Rules and regulations are for humans. #Quote by Krystell Lake
Violence And Humans quotes by Edgar Rice Burroughs
#16. I am glad," he said, "that I do not dwell in your country among such savage peoples. Here, in Caspak, men fight with men when they meet - men of different races - but their weapons are first for the slaying of beasts in the chase and defense. We do not fashion weapons solely for the killing of man as do your peoples. Your country must indeed be a savage country, from which you are fortunate to have escaped to the peace and security of Caspak. #Quote by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Violence And Humans quotes by Gwen Cooper
#17. A friend once asked me why it was that stories about animals and their heroism ... are so compelling.
... we love them because they're the closest thing we have to material evidence of an objective moral order
or, to put it another way, they're the closest thing we have to proof of the existence of God. They seem to prove that the things that matter to and move us the most
things like love, courage, loyalty, altruism
aren't just ideas we made up from nothing. To see them demonstrated in other animals proves they're real things, that they exist in the world independently of what humans invent and tell each other in the form of myth or fable. #Quote by Gwen Cooper
Violence And Humans quotes by Jack Kornfield
#18. We as human beings have the amazing capacity to be reborn at breakfast everyday and say, "This is a new day." #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Violence And Humans quotes by Natalie Dormer
#19. You can be a good human being and just be shrewd. #Quote by Natalie Dormer
Violence And Humans quotes by So Mayer
#20. Rape and colonialism are not commensurate, but they are kin. When we talk about sexual violence as feminists, we are–we have to be–talking about its use to subjugate entire peoples and cultures, the annihilation that is its empty heart. Rape is that bad because it is an ideological weapon. Rape is that bad because it is a structure: not an excess, not monstrous, but the logical conclusion of hetero-patriarchal capitalism. It is what that ugly polysyllabic euphemism for state power does. #Quote by So Mayer
Violence And Humans quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#21. Congressional Republicans refused to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act because they objected to the protection it gave immigrants, transgender women, and Native American women. (Speaking of epidemics, one of three Native American women will be raped, and on the reservations 88 percent of those rapes are by non-Native men who know tribal governments can't prosecute them. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Violence And Humans quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#22. I think about all of the times I've knocked on death's door. The flashbacks give me the strength to want to fight, but they always make me realize I was given chance after chance to change my life. I guess I thought I was untouchable, and life would continue to toss a coin - when I tossed a coin in the air, I always use to say heads, and there it was - I won. Therefore, I always gambled with my life, and now I do not have room to gamble anymore, because I am here. Life is kicking my ass because the only thing I can do is think of the past and think about the what-ifs."
~Love is respect ♥~ #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Violence And Humans quotes by Roman Payne
#23. Intoxication, like sexual euphoria, is the privilege of the human animal. #Quote by Roman Payne
Violence And Humans quotes by E. E. Cummings
#24. It's no use trying to pretend that mostpeople and ourselves are alike. Mostpeople have less in common with ourselves than thesquarerootofminusone. You and I are human beings; mostpeople are snobs. #Quote by E. E. Cummings
Violence And Humans quotes by Frederick Buechner
#25. Through the power that memory gives us of thinking, feeling, imagining our way back through time we can at long last finally finish with the past in the sense of removing its power to hurt us and other people and to stunt our growth as human beings. #Quote by Frederick Buechner
Violence And Humans quotes by Karen Armstrong
#26. Like art, religion is an imaginative and creative effort to find a meaning and value in human life. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Violence And Humans quotes by Amy Waldman
#27. Over the centuries, and even today, the Bible and Christian theology have helped justify the Crusades, slavery, violence against gays, and the murder of doctors who perform abortions. The words themselves are latent, inert, harmless - until they aren't. #Quote by Amy Waldman
Violence And Humans quotes by Patrick Jennings
#28. I had no idea what humans were capable of. I heard they were crafty, but how are they able to do such things?
You mean harness light and water? Speedy asked. Change the weather?
It's only the beginning, Speedy said. There are more marvels waiting. Some not so marvelous.
Such as?
Be not in haste, said the tortoise.
There is nothing here but time.
If you live long enough, you will see.
Of course, though, you will see them from your cage.
Live long enough? I asked. Are there mortal dangers here?
The tortoise chuckled.
The boy doesn't always take very good care of his prisoners, Rex the lizard chimed in.
What do you mean? He doesn't feed us enough?
Sometimes he doesn't understand what we need to survive, Rex answered. Sometimes he plays too rough.
How can a creature able to bend the laws of nature be so cruel? I asked. #Quote by Patrick Jennings
Violence And Humans quotes by Meda Chesney-Lind
#29. When some of the gangs got involved with the drug trade, particularlythe crack cocaine trade, and the lethal violence started to flare up in the '80s, then there was a great deal of public attention on gangs and a great deal of concern about what was going on in these social groups. #Quote by Meda Chesney-Lind
Violence And Humans quotes by Nic Pizzolatto
#30. If there was one overarching theme to 'True Detective,' I would say it was that, as human beings, we are nothing but the stories we live and die by - so you'd better be careful what stories you tell yourself. #Quote by Nic Pizzolatto
Violence And Humans quotes by Kaye Allen
#31. They are ever-changing. They are unlike immortals who stay young and beautiful forever - who have time under their control. Humans, they only have a few years to live, and yet there is beauty in the way time controls them. #Quote by Kaye Allen
Violence And Humans quotes by Wayne LaPierre
#32. There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and stows violence against its own people through vicious and violent video games. #Quote by Wayne LaPierre
Violence And Humans quotes by Robert Galbraith
#33. Strike knew how deeply ingrained was the belief that the evil conceal their dangerous predilections for violence and domination. When they wear them like bangles for all to see, the gullible populace laughs, calls it a pose, or finds it strangely attractive. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Violence And Humans quotes by Minae Mizumura
#34. Science may explain how humans came into being, but it has no answer to the slippery question of how humans should live. Only literature makes it possible to pose such questions in the first place. And if there is no answer, only literature can point to the impossibility of ever finding one. #Quote by Minae Mizumura
Violence And Humans quotes by Charles A. Reich
#35. Moreover, the human condition, if that is what it is, has been getting steadily worse in the Corporate State; more and more life-denying just as life should be opening up. #Quote by Charles A. Reich
Violence And Humans quotes by Nick Harkaway
#36. A cherry pie is ... ephemeral. From the moment it emerges from the oven it begins a steep decline: from too hot to edible to cold to stale to mouldy, and finally to a post-pie state where only history can tell you that it was once considered food. The pie is a parable of human life. #Quote by Nick Harkaway
