Sarah Dessen

“It shouldn’t be easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It’s the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something’s difficult to come by, you’ll do that much more to make sure it’s even harder–or impossible– to lose.”
― Sarah Dessen

“Low self-esteem causes me to believe that I have so little worth that my response does not matter. With repentance, however, I understand that being worth so much to God is why my response is so important. Repentance is remedial work to mend our minds and hearts, which get bent by sin.”
― John Ortberg Jr.
Lev Grossman

― Vera Nazarian
Ayn Rand

“Degrees of ability vary, but the basic principle remains the same: the degree of a man’s independence, initiative and personal love for his work determines his talent as a worker and his worth as a man. Independence is the only gauge of human virtue and value. What a man is and makes of himself; not what he has or hasn’t done for others. There is no substitute for personal dignity. There is no standard of personal dignity except independence.”
― Ayn Rand
Stormie Omartian

― W. Somerset Maugham
Moderata Fonte

“[M]en, though they know full well how much women are worth and how great the benefits we bring them, nonetheless seek to destroy us out of envy for our merits. It’s just like the crow, when it produces white nestlings: it is so stricken by envy, knowing how black it is itself, that it kills its own offspring out of pique.”
― Moderata Fonte
Yukito Kishiro

― Stewart O’Nan
C. JoyBell C.

“There are blue diamonds born to the world and given to those who only want glass crystals. There are blue roses born to the world yet given to those who only want daisies.

You were formed in the bedroom of the gods, you were conceived in the garden of the eternal!”
― C. JoyBell C.
Kevin  Walker

Criss Jami

Brené Brown

“What we know matters but who we are matters more.”

José Ortega y Gasset

“On the Bigotry of Culture:
: it presented us with culture, with thought as something justified in itself, that is, which requires no justification but is valid by it’s own essence, whatever its concrete employment and content maybe. Human life was to put itself at the service of culture because only thus would it become charged with value. From which it would follow that human life, our pure existence was, in itself, a mean and worthless thing.”
― José Ortega y Gasset
Margaret Atwood

“Of course (said Oryx), having a money value was no substitute for love. Every child should have love, every person should have it. . . . but love was undependable, it came and then it went, so it was good to have a money value, because then at least those who wanted to make a profit from you would make sure you were fed enough and not damaged too much. Also there were many who had neither love nor a money value, and having one of these things was better than having nothing.”
― Margaret Atwood
“No matter how pathetic or pitiful, every human is fated to have one moment in their lives in which they can change their own destiny.”
― Takayuki Yamaguchi
Marcus Aurelius

― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
Wendell Berry

“The industrial mind is a mind without compunction; it simply accepts that people, ultimately, will be treated as things and that things, ultimately, will be treated as garbage. (A Defense of the Family Farm, 1986)”
― Wendell Berry
“A lost person or article is still what it is, still valuable in itself, but in the wrong place, disconnected from its purpose and unable to be or do whatever it is intended to be or do.”
― David Winter
Criss Jami

“You ask me why I don’t speak
Not a word at will
But write so much worth well over a mill’
Well I value words like I value kisses
A sober one, a closer one penetrates the heart
Darling it’s how it mends it”
― Criss Jami
“I am on the side of the unregenerate who affirm the worth of life as an end in itself, as against the saints who deny it.”
― Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
John Lanchester

“On the opposite wall was a Damien Hirst spot painting, bought by Arabella after a decent bonus season. Roger’s considered view of the painting, looking at it from aesthetic, art-historical, interior-design, and psychological points of view, was that it had cost forty-seven thousand pounds, plus V.A.T.”
― John Lanchester
Toba Beta

“When you’ve succeeded, you’d say:
‘Indeed I’d to go through those hell
before fit into all of this happiness.”
― Toba Beta
Criss Jami

“Ultimate prosperity is one’s value within. It takes a man of depth, morality, and charm to be envied yet without a sign of wealth or romance. A passion to prove such inner worth is his permission to achieve whatever he desires.”
― Criss Jami
“We are spiritual children of God the Father. We preach it. We sing it. But do we really understand it? Sometimes it’s easy to tell others they are loved, but not so easy to believe it of ourselves — not because we don’t think God loves His children, but because we may feel undeserving of His love. The adversary loves to remind us who we are not. Not pretty. Not smart. Not strong. But God would not have sacrificed His Son to save us if we aren’t worth saving.”
― Toni Sorenson
Toba Beta

“Don’t ever reject a small
when you can’t take it all.”
― Toba Beta
Louise Penny

“And Beauvoir knew then the man was a saint. He’s been touched by any number of medical men and women. All healers, all well intentioned, some kind, some rough. All made it clear they wanted him to live, but none had made him feel that his life was precious, was worth saving, was worth something.”
― Louise Penny
John Steinbeck

“But you can’t start. Only a baby can start. You and me – why, we’re all that’s been. The anger of a moment, the thousand pictures, that’s us. This land, this red land, is us; and the flood years and the dust years and the drought years are us. We can’t start again. The bitterness we sold to the junk man – he got it all right, but we have it still. And when the owner men told us to go, that’s us; and when the tractor hit the house, that’s us until we’re dead. To California or any place – every one a drum major leading a parade of hurts, marching with our bitterness. And some day – the armies of bitterness will all be going the same way. And they’ll all walk together, and there’ll be a dead terror from it.”
― John Steinbeck
C. JoyBell C.

“I’ve learned, that not all worth is measured by price. I’ve found so many gems that didn’t cost me much!”
― C. JoyBell C.
Kim Harrison

“Nina sniffed, shifting her shoulders to look at the sky through the branches. “She’s a sweet girl, but poor.”

Ire pricked through me, and the last of his charisma shredded. “Being poor is not an indication of potential or worth. It’s a lack of resources.”
― Kim Harrison, A Perfect Blood

Values Quotes about Humanity

Standard

 

Aldo Leopold, the early 20th century’s Henry David Thoreau, said that we should think like a mountain, with a sense of permanence and a long view. At the beginning of the 21st century, we are at a peak of human power, wealth and information… We need to look back at our wonderful natural and human heritage, and cherish and protect the abundant values to be found there. We need to look out to the sides and see other parts of the world that need our help and can provide good ideas to go forward… We need to look ahead to be certain that our actions of today will make the world a better and richer and more varied place for our grandchildren and their grandchildren.

Robert Bateman quotes

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

Jeff Lindsay

“Perhaps because I’ll never be one, humans are interesting to me.”
― Jeff Lindsay, Darkly Dreaming Dexter
Jess C. Scott

“Anya looked upon Nin admirably. Having him as a partner-in-crime—if only on this one occasion, which she hoped would only be the start of something more—was more revitalizing than the cheap thrills of a cookie-cutter shallow, superficial romance, where the top priority was how beautiful a person was on the outside.”
― Jess C. Scott, The Other Side of Life
Carroll Bryant

“You can spend your life judging people or, you can spend it making friends. Take your pick.”
― Carroll Bryant
Kelly Cutrone

“That was when I first observed a phenomenon I now call the “New York Slide”: you offer your words to try to communicate and connect with someone, but your words just hit a brick wall the person has erected to ward off human contact- the words slide down it and roll away.”
― Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
“When examining evidence relevant to a given belief, people are inclined to see what they expect to see, and conclude what they expect to conclude. Information that is consistent with our pre-existing beliefs is often accepted at face value, whereas evidence that contradicts them is critically scrutinized and discounted. Our beliefs may thus be less responsive than they should to the implications of new information”
― Thomas Gilovich, How We Know What Isn’t So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life
George Eliot

“but very little achievement is required in order to pity another man’s shortcomings.”
― George Eliot, Middlemarch: A Study of Provincial Life
Dan Ariely

“To summarize, using money to motivate people can be a double-edged sword. For tasks that require cognitive ability, low to moderate performance-based incentives can help. But when the incentive level is very high, it can command too much attention and thereby distract the person’s mind with thoughts about the reward. This can create stress and ultimately reduce the level of performance.”
― Dan Ariely, The Upside of Irrationality: The Unexpected Benefits of Defying Logic at Work and at Home
“No one really knows why humans do what they do.”
― David K. Reynolds
“People will always prefer black-and-white over shades of grey, and so there will always be the temptation to hold overly-simplified beliefs and to hold them with excessive confidence”

Jane Austen

“General benevolence, but not general friendship, make a man what he ought to be.”
― Jane Austen, Emma
Michael Crichton

“A wonderful area for speculative academic work is the unknowable. These days religious subjects are in disfavor, but there are still plenty of good topics. The nature of consciousness, the workings of the brain, the origin of aggression, the origin of language, the origin of life on earth, SETI and life on other worlds…this is all great stuff. Wonderful stuff. You can argue it interminably. But it can’t be contradicted, because nobody knows the answer to any of these topics.”
― Michael Crichton
“it seems that once again people engage in a search for evidence that is biased toward confirmation. Asked to assess the similarity of two entities, people pay more attention to the ways in which they are similar than to the ways in which they differ. Asked to assess dissimilarity, they become more concerned with differences than with similarities. In other words, when testing a hypothesis of similarity, people look for evidence of similarity rather than dissimilarity, and when testing a hypothesis of dissimilarity, they do the opposite. The relationship one perceives between two entities, then, can vary with the precise form of the question that is asked”
― Thomas Gilovich, How We Know What Isn’t So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life
“For desired conclusions, we ask ourselves, “Can I believe this?”, but for unpalatable conclusions we ask, “Must I believe this?”

“Pain explains a great deal of human conduct, but the fear of pain even more.”
― Neil Abramson, Unsaid: A Novel
“When we do cross paths with people whose beliefs and attitudes conflict with our own, we are rarely challenged.”
― Thomas Gilovich, How We Know What Isn’t So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life
Mario Acevedo

“I’m an expert in homo sapiens behavior. They can rationalize anything. Take war. They’ll bankrupt their economies, sacrifie the best of their young, unleash a bloodbath that impresses even me, at the expense of providing shelter, food, and medicine for their own people. Compared to that, the sale of a few women is trivial.”
― Mario Acevedo, The Undead Kama Sutra
Kiley MacLeod

“Humans, I finally decided after a few more minutes of watching him, are paradoxically capable of both unattainable depths of kindness and unimaginable depths of cruelty, sometimes within the same body…”
― Kiley MacLeod
Clive Barker

“Minds weren’t pictures at an exhibition, all numbered, and hung in order of influence, one marked “Cunning,” the next, “Impressionable.” They were scrawls; they were sprawling splashes of graffiti, unpredictable, unconfinable.”
― Clive Barker, Books of Blood, Vols. 1-3
“سأحاول أن أحبك, لا لأنك جدير بهذا الحب ولكن لأنى جدير بأن أنّظف قلبى من كره الأخرين”
― Shadi Kamal Kandil
“How do we distinguish between the legitimate skepticism of those who scoffed at cold fusion, and the stifling dogma of the seventeenthcentury clergymen who, doubting Galileo’s claim that the earth was not the center of the solar system, put him under house arrest for the last eight years of his life? In part, the answer lies in the distinction between skepticism and closed-mindedness. Many scientists who were skeptical about cold fusion nevertheless tried to replicate the reported phenomenon in their own labs; Galileo’s critics refused to look at the pertinent data.”
― Thomas Gilovich, How We Know What Isn’t So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life
“We humans seem to be extremely good at generating ideas, theories, and explanations that have the ring of plausibility. We may be relatively deficient, however, in evaluating and testing our ideas once they are formed”

“We must try to remember everything, every movement, every stretch, every convulsion that made us how we move as we readily grow in our outer body that encompasses the planets, the suns and the moons in every other body that we touch, in every other mouth that we kissed, in every other language that we try to comprehend; for they are not the outside of a stranger, nor are they just images of our psyche, but the very being of ourselves, the dimensional levels of our very existence weaving colours in the tapestry of creation, yet the very non-existence of the template is proof of consciousness, of ascension, of Life.”

Thoughts On Humanity

Standard

Relations between the sexes are so complicated that the only way you can tell if members of the set are going together is if they are married. Then, almost certainly, they are not.

  • –Katharine Hepburn

The traveler’s-eye view of men and women is not satisfying. A man might spend his life in trains and restaurants and know nothing of humanity at the end. To know, one must be an actor as well as a spectator.

Buy ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
