Humankind quotes
Humankind
The decay of decency in the modern age, the rebellion against law and good faith, the treatment of human beings as things, as the mere instruments of power and ambition, is without a doubt the consequence of the decay of the belief in man as something more than an animal animated by highly conditioned reflexes and chemical reactions. For, unless man is something more than that, he has no rights that anyone is bound to respect, and there are no limitations upon his conduct which he is bound to obey.

- Lippmann, Walter
Man is God's highest present development. He is the latest thing in God.

- Butler, Samuel
Man is a being in search of meaning.

- Plato
The world of men is dreaming, it has gone mad in its sleep, and a snake is strangling it, but it can't wake up.

- Lawrence, D. H.
I wish I loved the Human Race; I wish I loved its silly face; I wish I liked the way it walks; I wish I liked the way it talks; And when I'm introduced to one I wish I thought What Jolly Fun!

- Raleigh, Sir Walter
An effective human being is a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

- Rolf, Ida P.
I am human and let nothing human be alien to me.

- Terence
We say nothing essential about the cathedral when we speak of its stones. We say nothing essential about Man when we seek to define him by the qualities of men.

- Saint-Exupery, Antoine De
Man, became man through work, who stepped out of the animal kingdom as transformer of the natural into the artificial, who became therefore the magician, man the creator of social reality, will always stay the great magician, will always be Prometheus bringing fire from heaven to earth, will always be Orpheus enthralling nature with his music. Not until humanity itself dies will art die.

- Fischer, Ernst
Human affairs are not serious, but they have to be taken seriously.

- Murdoch, Iris
Humanity is the virtue of a woman, generosity that of a man.

- Smith, Adam
If we consider the superiority of the human species, the size of its brain, its powers of thinking, language and organization, we can say this: were there the slightest possibility that another rival or superior species might appear, on earth or elsewhere, man would use every means at his disposal to destroy it.

- Baudrillard, Jean
Mankind is made great or little by its own will.

- Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von
Mind and spirit together make up that which separates us from the rest of the animal world, that which enables a man to know the truth and that which enables him to die for the truth.

- Hamilton, Edith
Of mankind we may say in general they are fickle, hypocritical, and greedy of gain.

- Machiavelli, Niccolo
The course of human history is determined, not by what happens in the skies, but by what takes place in our hearts.

- Kent, Sir Arthur
Man is stark mad; he cannot make a flea, and yet he will be making gods by the dozens.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
I am a member of the rabble in good standing.

- Pegler, Westbrook

- Heinlein, Robert
Man only likes to count his troubles, but he does not count his joys.

- Dostoevsky, Fyodor
