#296 Albert Einstein

If one purges the Judaism of the Prophets and Christianity as Jesus Christ taught it of all subsequent additions, especially those of the priests, one is left with a teaching which is capable of curing all the social ills of humanity. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about humanity
#298 Albert Einstein

If one purges the Judaism of the Prophets and Christianity as Jesus Christ taught it of all subsequent additions, especially those of the priests, one is left with a teaching which is capable of curing all the social ills of humanity. It is the duty of every man of good will to strive steadfastly in his own little world to make this teaching of pure humanity a living force, so far as he can. If he makes an honest attempt in this direction without being crushed and trampled under foot by his contemporaries, he may consider himself and the community to which he belongs lucky. .

Albert Einstein Quotes about humanity
#1194 Bertrand Russell

This idea of weapons of mass extermination is utterly horrible and is something which no one with one spark of humanity can tolerate. I will not pretend to obey a government which is organising a mass massacre of mankind. .

Mark Twain Quotes about humanity
#7243 Leo Tolstoy

There can be only one permanent revolution — a moral one; the regeneration of the inner man. How is this revolution to take place? Nobody knows how it will take place in humanity, but every man feels it clearly in himself. And yet in our world everybody thinks of changing humanity, and nobody thinks of changing himself. .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about humanity
#7247 Leo Tolstoy

Understand then all of you, especially the young, that to want to impose an imaginary state of government on others by violence is not only a vulgar superstition, but even a criminal work. Understand that this work, far from assuring the well-being of humanity is only a lie, a more or less unconscious hypocrisy, camouflaging the lowest passions we posses. .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about humanity
#8026 StanisЕ‚aw Lem

Futurologists have been multiplying like flies since the daymade 's profession "scientific," yet somehow not one of them has come out with the clear statement that we have wholly abandoned ourselves to the mercy of technological progress. The roles are now reversed: humanity becomes, for technology, a means, an instrument for achieving a goal unknown and unknowable. .

StanisЕ‚aw Lem Quotes about humanity
#10215 Buckminster Fuller

One of humanity's prime drives is to understand and be understood. All other living creatures are designed for highly specialized tasks. Man seems unique as the comprehensive comprehender and co-ordinator of local universe affairs. .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about humanity
#10247 Buckminster Fuller

Quite clearly, our task is predominantly metaphysical, for it is how to get all of humanity to educate itself swiftly enough to generate spontaneous social behaviors that will avoid extinction. .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about humanity
#10251 Buckminster Fuller

It is essential to release humanity from the false fixations of yesterday, which seem now to bind it to a rationale of action leading only to extinction. .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about humanity
#10270 Buckminster Fuller

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about humanity
#10286 Buckminster Fuller

I do not look upon human beings as good or bad. I don't think of my feet as a right foot and a wrong foot. ... I am a student of the effectiveness of the technological evolution in its all unexpected alterations of the preoccupations of humanity and in its all unexpected alterings of human behaviors and prospects. .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about humanity
#10293 Buckminster Fuller

I have been a deliberate half-century-fused inciter of a cool-headed, natural, gestation-rate-paced revolution, armed with physically demonstrable livingry levers with which altogether to elevate all humanity to realization of an inherently sustainable, satisfactory-to-all, ever higher standard of living. Critical threshold-crossing of the inevitable revolution is already underway. .

Buckminster Fuller Quotes about humanity
#11354 Isaac Asimov

A robot may not injure humanity, or, through inaction, allow humanity to come to harm. .

Isaac Asimov Quotes about humanity
#13032 G. K. Chesterton

And I will add this point of merely personal experience of humanity: when men have a real explanation they explain it, eagerly and copiously and in common speech, as Huxley freely gave it when he thought he had it. When they have no explanation to offer, they give short dignified replies, disdainful of the ignorance of the multitude. .

G. K. Chesterton Quotes about humanity
#13042 G. K. Chesterton

Now it has appeared to me unfair that humanity should be engaged perpetually in calling all those things bad which have been good enough to make other things better, in everlastingly kicking down the ladder by which it has climbed. It has appeared to me that progress should be something else besides a continual parricide; therefore I have investigated the dust-heaps of humanity, and found a treasure in all of them. I have found that humanity is not incidentally engaged, but eternally and systematically engaged, in throwing gold into the gutter and diamonds into the sea. .

G. K. Chesterton Quotes about humanity
#14087 Emily Bront

You talk of her mind being unsettled - how the devil could it be otherwise, in her frightful isolation? And that insipid, paltry creature attending her from duty and humanity! From pity and charity. He might as well plant an oak in a flower-pot, and expect it to thrive, as imagine he can restore her to vigour in the soil of his shallow cares! .

Emily Bront Quotes about humanity
#14850 Edmund Burke

It is not, what a lawyer tells me I may do; but what humanity, reason, and justice, tell me I ought to do. .

Edmund Burke Quotes about humanity
#16759 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

O suffering, sad humanity! O ye afflicted ones, who lie Steeped to the lips in misery, Longing, yet afraid to die, Patient, though sorely tried! .

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Quotes about humanity
#17199 Robert Burns

Man's inhumanity to man Makes countless thousands mourn. Man was made to Mourn. .

Robert Burns Quotes about humanity
#19602 Mahatma Gandhi

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 about humanity
#19605 Mahatma Gandhi

I know of no one who has done more for humanity than Jesus. In fact, there is nothing wrong with Christianity ... The trouble is with you Christians. You do not begin to live up to your own teachings. .

Mahatma Gandhi Quotes about humanity
#19812 H. G. Wells

Raymond Passworthy: But... we're such little creatures. Poor humanity's so fragile, so weak. Little... little animals. .

H. G. Wells Quotes about humanity
#20069 C. S. Lewis

For what comes is Judgment: happy are those whom it finds labouring in their vocations, whether they were merely going out to feed the pigs or laying good plans to deliver humanity a hundred years hence from some great evil. The curtain has indeed now fallen. Those pigs will never in fact be fed, the great campaign against White Slavery or Governmental Tyranny will never in fact proceed to victory. No matter; you were at your post when the Inspection came. .

C. S. Lewis Quotes about humanity
#25350 Blaise Pascal

Lust is the source of all our actions, and humanity, &c. .

Blaise Pascal Quotes about humanity
#25539 Blaise Pascal

Scepticism.—Excess, like defect of intellect, is accused of madness. Nothing is good but mediocrity. The majority has settled that, and finds fault with him who escapes it at whatever end, I will not oppose it. I quite consent to put myself there, and refuse to be at the lower end, not because it is low, but because it is an end; for I would likewise refuse to be placed at the top. To leave the mean is to abandon humanity. The greatness of the human soul consists in knowing how to preserve the mean. So far from greatness consisting in leaving it, it consists in not leaving it. .

Blaise Pascal Quotes about humanity
#26417 Emil Cioran

I believe in the salvation of humanity, in the future of cyanide... .

Emil Cioran Quotes about humanity
#26560 Emil Cioran

Nothing is a better proof of how far humanity has regressed than the impossibility of finding a single nation, a single tribe, among whom birth still provokes mourning and lamentations. .

Emil Cioran Quotes about humanity
#26578 Emil Cioran

Kill yourself because you are what you are, but not because all humanity would spit in your face! .

Emil Cioran Quotes about humanity
#36800 Sёren Kierkegaard

To understand oneself in existence is the Christian principle, except that this self has received much richer and much more profound qualifications that are even more difficult to understand together with existing. The believer is a subjective thinker, and the difference, is only between the simple person and the simple wise person. Here again the oneself is not humanity in general, subjectivity in general, and other such things, whereas everything becomes easy inasmuch as the difficulty is removed and the whole matter is shifted over into the shadow play of abstraction. **Concluding Unscientific Postscript to Philosophical Fragments, Vol. I, Hong p. 353 .

Sёren Kierkegaard Quotes about humanity
#37845 Guns

The laws of [false utility] are those which forbid to wear arms, disarming those only who are not disposed to commit the crime which the laws mean to prevent. Can it be supposed, that those who have the courage to violate the most sacred laws of humanity, and the most important of the code, will respect the less considerable and arbitrary injunctions, the violation of which is so easy, and of so little comparative importance? Does not the execution of this law deprive the subject of that personal liberty, so dear to mankind and to the wise legislator? .

Guns Quotes about humanity
#38840 Emma Goldman

No revolution can ever succeed as a factor of liberation unless the MEANS used to further it be identical in spirit and tendency with the PURPOSES to be achieved. Revolution is the negation of the existing, a violent protest against man's inhumanity to man with all the thousand and one slaveries it involves. It is the destroyer of dominant values upon which a complex system of injustice, oppression, and wrong has been built up by ignorance and brutality. It is the herald of NEW VALUES, ushering in a transformation of the basic relations of man to man, and of man to society. .

Emma Goldman Quotes about humanity
#40002 Joseph Campbell

This thing up here, this consciousness, thinks it's running the shop. It's a secondary organ. It's a secondary organ of a total human being, and it must not put itself in control. It must submit and serve the humanity of the body. .

Joseph Campbell Quotes about humanity
#40740 Eric Hoffer

The sick ininsist that it isthat is sick, and they are the surgeons to operate on it. They want to turn the world into a sickroom. And once they get humanity strapped to the operating table, they operate on it with an ax. .

Eric Hoffer Quotes about humanity
#40768 Eric Hoffer

Absolutecorrupts even when exercised for humane purposes. The benevolent despot who sees himself as a shepherd of thestill demands from others the submissiveness of . The taint inherent in absolute power is not its inhumanity but its anti-humanity. .

Eric Hoffer Quotes about humanity
#40928 Robert Kennedy

Yet we seemingly tolerate a rising level of violence that ignores our common humanity and our claims to civilization alike. We calmly accept newspaper reports of civilian slaughter in far-off lands. We glorify killing on movie and television screens and call it entertainment. We make it easy for men of all shades of sanity to acquire whatever weapons and ammunition they desire. .

Robert Kennedy Quotes about humanity
#41428 Louis Pasteur

I am utterly convinced that Science and Peace will triumph over Ignorance and War, that nations will eventually unite not to destroy but to edify, and that the future will belong to those who have done the most for the sake of suffering humanity. .

Louis Pasteur Quotes about humanity
#42780 The Books of Magic

The Phantom Stranger: They say humanity only gets one chance at the carousel's golden ring. But the carousel goes round and round, and round and round. And the golden ring is not going anywhere. .

The Books of Magic Quotes about humanity
#45754 Khalil Gibran

Your thought describes laws, courts, judges, punishments. Mine explains that when man makes a law, he either violates it or obeys it. If there is a basic law, we are all one before it. He who disdains the mean is himself mean. He who vaunts his scorn of the sinful vaunts his disdain of all humanity. .

Khalil Gibran Quotes about humanity
#47126 Thomas Mann

The Freudian theory is one of the most important foundation stones for an edifice to be built by future generations, the dwelling of a freer and wiser humanity. .

Thomas Mann Quotes about humanity
#47225 Thomas Mann

The invention of printing and the Reformation are and remain the two outstanding services of central Europe to the cause of humanity. .

Thomas Mann Quotes about humanity
#48038 William Hazlitt

The slaves of power mind the cause they have to serve, because their own interest is concerned; but the friends of liberty always sacrifice their cause, which is only the cause of humanity, to their own spleen, vanity, and self-opinion. .

William Hazlitt Quotes about humanity
#48171 William Hazlitt

Genius, like humanity, rusts for want of use. .

William Hazlitt Quotes about humanity
#51941 M. H. Abrams

We are human, and nothing is more interesting to us than humanity. .

M. H. Abrams Quotes about humanity
#53175 Alfred Adler

Death is really a great blessing for humanity, without it there could be no real progress. People who lived for ever would not only hamper and discourage the young, but they would themselves lack sufficient stimulus to be creative. .

Alfred Adler Quotes about humanity
#60217 Dario Argento

Paradise is too perfect for humanity. .

Dario Argento Quotes about humanity
#60358 Shari Arison

For too long, humanity has acted with an outrageous lack of responsibility. We wanted everything for ourselves: greed, really. We failed to look at the overall picture and did not take into consideration those with whom we share the world. .

Shari Arison Quotes about humanity
#60915 Neil Armstrong

The important achievement of Apollo was demonstrating that humanity is not forever chained to this planet and our visions go rather further than that and our opportunities are unlimited. .
