Evolution quotes
Evolution
We live between two worlds; we soar in the atmosphere; we creep upon the soil; we have the aspirations of creators and the propensities of quadrupeds. There can be but one explanation of this fact. We are passing from the animal into a higher form, and the drama of this planet is in its second act.

- Reade, W. Winwood
He that goeth about to persuade a multitude that they are not so well governed as they ought to be shall never want attentive and favorable hearers.

- Hooker, Richard
Every revolution was first a thought in one man?s mind.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
To be a revolutionary you have to be human being. You have to care about people who have no power.

- Fonda, Jane
Perfect works are rare, because they must be produced at the happy moment when taste and genius unite; and this rare conjuncture, like that of certain planets, appears to occur only after the revolution of several cycles, and only lasts for an instant.

- Chateaubriand, Vicomte De
At the risk of sounding ridiculous, a true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love.

- Ernesto "Che" Guevara
If the Revolution has the right to destroy bridges and art monuments whenever necessary, it will stop still less from laying its hand on any tendency in art which, no matter how great its achievement in form, threatens to disintegrate the revolutionary environment or to arouse the internal forces of the Revolution, that is, the proletariat, the peasantry and the intelligentsia, to a hostile opposition to one another. Our standard is, clearly, political, imperative and intolerant.

- Trotsky, Leon
PROBOSCIS, n. The rudimentary organ of an elephant which serves him in place of the knife-and-fork that Evolution has as yet denied him. For purposes of humor it is popularly called a trunk. Asked how he knew that an elephant was going on a journey, the illustrious Jo. Miller cast a reproachful look upon his tormentor, and answered, absently: "When it is ajar," and threw himself from a high promontory into the sea. Thus perished in his pride the most famous humorist of antiquity, leaving to mankind a heritage of woe! No successor worthy of the title has appeared, though Mr. Edward bok, of _The Ladies'Home Journal_, is much respected for the purity and sweetness of his personal character.

- Ambrose Bierce
The more dubious and uncertain an instrument violence has become in international relations, the more it has gained in reputation and appeal in domestic affairs, specifically in the matter of revolution.

- Arendt, Hannah
If we are going to teach creation science as an alternative to evolution, then we should also teach the stork theory as an alternative to biological reproduction.

- Judith Hayes
Like other revolutionaries I can thank God for the reactionaries. They clarify the issue.

- Collingwood, Robin G.
Riots are the voices of the unheard.

- King Jr. Martin Luther
There are books which take rank in your life with parents and lovers and passionate experiences, so medicinal, so stringent, so revolutionary, so authoritative.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Oh, my friend, it's not what they take away from you that counts -- it's what you do with what you have left.

- Humphrey, Hubert H.
The scrupulous and the just, the noble, humane, and devoted natures; the unselfish and the intelligent may begin a movement -- but it passes away from them. They are not the leaders of a revolution. They are its victims.

- Conrad, Joseph
True revolutionaries are like God -- they create the world in their own image. Our awesome responsibility to ourselves, to our children, and to the future is to create ourselves in the image of goodness, because the future depends on the nobility of our imaginings.

- Harrison, Barbara Grizzuti
Evolution crawls to imperfection. It ends in extinction.

- J. Gregory Keyes
Historians will have to face the fact that natural selection determined the evolution of cultures in the same manner as it did that of species.

- Lorenz, Konrad
If you want to know the taste of a pear, you must change the pear by eating it yourself. If you want to know the theory and methods of revolution, you must take part in revolution. All genuine knowledge originates in direct experience.

- Zedong, Mao
To achieve the mood of a warrior is not a simple matter. It is a revolution. To regard the lion and the water rats and our fellow men as equals is a magnificent act of a warrior's spirit. It takes power to do that.

- Castaneda, Carlos
