Humanity Quotes
A good motivation is what is needed: compassion without dogmatism, without complicated philosophy; just understanding that others are human brothers and sisters and respecting their human rights and dignities. That we humans can help each other is one of our unique human capacities.

TENZIN GYATSO, 14TH DALAI LAMA

A religious man is a person who holds God and man in one thought at one time, at all times, who suffers harm done to others, whose greatest passion is compassion, whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair. [New York Journal-American, April 5, 1963]

It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.

OSCAR WILDE

It is not so much that man is a herd animal, said Freud, but that he is a horde animal led by a chief.

ERNEST BECKER

Know that although in the eternal scheme of things you are small, you are also unique and irreplaceable, as are all your fellow humans everywhere in the world.

MARGARET LAURENCE

Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process.

ANNE WILSON SCHAEF

Living gives you a better understanding of life. I would hope that my characters have become deeper and more rounded personalities. Wider travels have given me considerably greater insight into how cultural differences affect not only people, but politics and art.

ALAN DEAN FOSTER

Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.

ARTHUR RUBINSTEIN

Men are cruel, but Man is kind.

RABINDRANATH TAGORE

My life is an indivisible whole, and all my attitudes run into one another; and they all have their rise in my insatiable love for mankind.

MOHANDAS K. GANDHI

My passionate sense of social justice and social responsibility has always contrasted oddly with my pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities.

ALBERT EINSTEIN

On the whole human beings want to be good, but not too good, and not quite all the time.

GEORGE ORWELL

One of the most important resources that a garden makes available for use, is the gardener's own body. A garden gives the body the dignity of working in its own support. It is a way of rejoining the human race.

WENDELL BERRY

One should never direct people towards happiness, because happiness too is an idol of the market-place. One should direct them towards mutual affection. A beast gnawing at its prey can be happy too, but only human beings can feel affection for each other, and this is the highest achievement they can aspire to.

ALEKSANDR SOLZHENITSYN

Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species -- man -- acquired significant power to alter the nature of his world.

The greatest minds are capable of the greatest vices as well as of the greatest virtues.

RENE DESCARTES

The more I see of man, the more I like dogs.

W. H. AUDEN

The only real nation is humanity.

PAUL FARMER

The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.

PEARL S. BUCK

There are things so deep and complex that only intuition can reach it in our stage of development as human beings.

JOHN ASTIN

Today the network of relationships linking the human race to itself and to the rest of the biosphere is so complex that all aspects affect all others to an extraordinary degree. Someone should be studying the whole system, however crudely that has to be done, because no gluing together of partial studies of a complex nonlinear system can give a good idea of the behavior of the whole.

MURRAY GELL-MANN

We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.

MOHANDAS K. GANDHI
