great mass of humanity

Standard

The great mass of humanity should never learn to read or write.

    D.H. Lawrence quotes

  

It is not in giving life but in risking life that man is raised above the animal; that is why superiority has been accorded in humanity not to the sex that brings forth but to that which kills.

    Simone de Beauvoir quotes

  

When we abolish the slavery of half of humanity, together with the whole system of hypocrisy it implies, then the “division” of humanity will reveal its genuine significance and the human couple will find its true form.

    Simone de Beauvoir quotes

  

I am absolutely convinced that no wealth in the world can help humanity forward, even in the hands of the most devoted worker. The example of great and pure individuals is the only thing that can lead us to noble thoughts and deeds. Money only appeals to selfishness and irresistibly invites abuse. Can anyone imagine Moses, Jesus or Ghandi armed with the money-bags of Carnegie?

    Albert Einstein quotes

  

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.

    Dalai Lama quotes

  

Every gun that’s made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms…is spending the genius of its scientists, the sweat of its laborers, the hope of its children – it is humanity from a cross of iron.

    Dwight David Eisenhower quotes

  

All labour that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

    Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes

  

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.’

    Ann Landers quotes

  

They have exiled me now from their society and I am pleased, because humanity does not exile except the one whose noble spirit rebels against despotism and oppression. He who does not prefer exile to slavery is not free by any measure of freedom, truth and duty.

    Kahlil Gibran quotes

  

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.

    Mary Ashton Livermore quotes

Nor shall derision prove powerful against those who listen to humanity or those who follow in the footsteps of divinity, for they shall live forever. Forever.

    Kahlil Gibran quotes

  

In this world, which is so plainly the antechamber of another, there are no happy men. The true division of humanity is between those who live in light and those who live in darkness. Our aim must be to diminish the number of the latter and increase the number of the former. That is why we demand education and knowledge.

    Victor Hugo quotes

  

It is not tolerable, it is not possible, that from so much death, so much sacrifice and ruin, so much heroism, a greater and better humanity shall not emerge.

    Charles de Gaulle quotes

  

My message is the practice of compassion, love and kindness. Compassion can be put into practice if one recognizes the fact that every human being is a member of humanity and the human family regardless of differences in religion, culture, color and creed. Deep down there is no difference.

    Dalai Lama quotes

  

All humanity is passion; without passion, religion, history, novels, art would be ineffectual.

    Honore de Balzac quotes

  

Humanity needs practical men, who get the most out of their work, and, without forgetting the general good, safeguard their own interests. But humanity also needs dreamers, for whom the disinterested development of an enterprise is so captivating that it becomes impossible for them to devote their care to their own material profit.

    Marie Curie quotes

  

The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it.

    Henry Louis Mencken quotes

  

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.

    Mahatma Gandhi quotes

  

There is, nevertheless, a certain respect and a general duty of humanity that ties us, not only to beasts that have life and sense, but even to trees and plants.

    Michel de Montaigne quotes

  

Conservation is humanity caring for the future.

    Anonymous quotes

All of us are guinea pigs in the laboratory of God. Humanity is just a work in progress.

    Anonymous quotes

  

The fundamental delusion of humanity is to suppose that I am here and you are there

    Anonymous quotes

  

Humanity without religion is like a serial killer without a chainsaw

    Anonymous quotes
