Humankind quotes
Humankind
Our humanity is a poor thing, except for the divinity that stirs within us.

- Bacon, Francis
The Goddamn human race deserves itself, and as far as I'm concerned it can have it.

- Janeway, Elizabeth
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
Consider your breed; you were not made to live like beasts, but to follow virtue and knowledge.

- Dante Alighieri
If the gods listened to the prayers of men, all humankind would quickly perish since they constantly pray for many evils to befall one another.

- Epicurus
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
The history of mankind is the history of ideas.

- Mises, Ludwig Von
I have all my life been on my guard against the information conveyed by the sense of hearing -- it being one of my earliest observations, the universal inclination of humankind is to be led by the ears, and I am sometimes apt to imagine that they are given to men as they are to pitchers, purposely that they may be carried about by them.

- Montagu, Lady Mary Wortley
Man is a beautiful machine that works very badly.

- Mencken, H. L.
Man was nature's mistake --she neglected to finish him -- and she has never ceased paying for her mistake.

- Hoffer, Eric
Those who live in a world of human beings can only retrace their steps.

- Sarraute, Nathalie
People can be divided into two classes: those who go ahead and do something, and those who sit still and inquire,why wasn't it done the other way?

- Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Man is a being in search of meaning.

- Plato
The horror of wedlock, the most appalling, the most loathsome of all the bonds humankind has devised for its own discomfort and degradation.

- Sade, Marquis De
There are two kinds of people in the world -- those you love, and those you don't understand.

But remember please, the Law by which we live, we are not built to comprehend a lie, we can neither love nor pity nor forgive. If you make a slip in handling us you die.

- Kipling, Rudyard
Human beings are the only animals of which I am thoroughly and cravenly afraid.

- Shaw, George Bernard
Man is stark mad; he cannot make a flea, and yet he will be making gods by the dozens.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
As the archeology of our thought easily shows, man is an invention of recent date. And one perhaps nearing its end.

- Foucault, Michel
It is peculiar to mankind to transcend mankind.

- Schlegel, Friedrich
