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.
It is because Humanity has never known where it was going that it has been able to find its way.
Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition
All of us are guinea pigs in the laboratory of God. Humanity is just a work in progress.
Only on paper has humanity yet achieved glory, beauty, truth, knowledge, virtue, and abiding love.
Humanity is acquiring all the right technology for all the wrong reasons.
Humanity should question itself, once more, about the absurd and always unfair phenomenon of war, on whose stage of death and pain only remain standing the negotiating table that could and should have prevented it.
All humanity is one undivided and indivisible family, and each one of us is responsible for the misdeeds of all the others. I cannot detach myself from the wickedest soul.
Our humanity rests upon a series of learned behaviors, woven together into patterns that are infinitely fragile and never directly inherited.
If everyone howled at every injustice, every act of barbarism, every act of unkindness, then we would be taking the first step towards a real humanity.
Humanity is the keystone that holds nations and men together. When that collapses, the whole structure crumbles. This is as true of baseball teams as any other pursuit in life.
Humanity is never more sphinxlike than when it is expressing itself
Everybody thinks of changing humanity and nobody thinks of changing himself.
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
Weak mortals, chained to the earth, creatures of clay as frail as the foliage of the woods, you unfortunate race, whose life is but darkness, as unreal as a shadow, the illusion of a dream.
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in eye and say, ‘I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.’
From now on it is only through a conscious choice and through a deliberate policy that humanity can survive.
For humanity has moved forward to an era when wrong and slavery are being displaced, and reason and justice are being recognized as the rule of life.
Humanism: an exaltation of freedom, but one limited by our need to exercise it as an integral part of nature and society
The true grandeur of humanity is in moral elevation, sustained, enlightened and decorated by the intellect of man
A sweet new blossom of humanity, fresh fallen from God’s own home, to flower on earth
I believe in humanity. We are an incredible species. We’re still just a child creature, we’re still being nasty to each other. And all children go through those phases. We’re growing up, we’re moving into adolescence now. When we grow up – man, we’re going to be something!
