In revolutions the occasions may be trifling but great interest are at stake.
Best Quotes about Evolution
Organic life, we are told, has developed gradually from the protozoon to the philosopher, and this development, we are assured, is indubitably an advance. Unfortunately it is the philosopher, not the protozoon, who gives us this assurance.
An extra-terrestrial philosopher, who had watched a single youth up to the age of twenty-one and had never come across any other human being, might conclude that it is the nature of human beings to grow continually taller and wiser in an indefinite progress towards perfection; and this generalization would be just as well founded as the generalization which evolutionists base upon the previous history of this planet.
The more there are riots, the more repressive actin will take place, and the more we face the danger of a right-wing takeover and eventually a fascist society.
King Jr. Martin Luther
No one makes a revolution by himself; and there are some revolutions which humanity accomplishes without quite knowing how, because it is everybody who takes them in hand.
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute.
In every revolution there intrude, at the side of its true agents, men of a different stamp; some of them survivors of and devotees to past revolutions, without insight into the present movement, but preserving popular influence by their known honesty and courage, or by the sheer force of tradition; others mere brawlers, who, by dint of repeating year after year the same set of stereotyped declamations against the government of the day, have sneaked into the reputation of revolutionists of the first water They are an unavoidable evil: with time they are shaken off.
It is disturbing to discover in oneself these curious revelations of the validity of the Darwinian theory. If it is true that we have sprung from the ape, there are occasions when my own spring appears not to have been very far.
Skinner, Cornelia Otis
The probability of life originating from accident is comparable to the probability of the unabridged dictionary resulting from an explosion in a printing shop.
More and more, revolution has found itself delivered into the hands of its bureaucrats and doctrinaires on the one hand, and to the enfeebled and bewildered masses on the other.
Revolution begins with the self, in the self.
Bambara, Toni Cade
I believe that our Heavenly Father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
Revolutions are not made for export.
One revolution is like one cocktail, it just gets you organized for the next.
Disturbances in society are never more fearful than when those who are stirring up the trouble can use the pretext of religion to mask their true designs.
If you want a symbolic gesture, don't burn the flag, wash it.
After listening to a lecture on evolution by a science professor, a student wrote a poem and titled it The Amazing Professor. The poem read: Once I was a tadpole when I began to begin. Then I was a frog with my tail tucked in. Next I was a monkey on a coconut tree. Now I am a doctor with a Ph.D.
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.
The children of the revolution are always ungrateful, and the revolution must be grateful that it is so.
Guin, Ursula K. Le
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed -- that is the meaning of evolution.
Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose, but their chains. .Workers of the world unite!
We have wasted our spirit in the regions of the abstract and general just as the monks let it wither in the world of prayer and contemplation.
A nation grown free in a single day is a child born with the limbs and the vigor of a man, who would take a drawn sword for his rattle, and set the house in a blaze that he might chuckle over the splendor.
When people contend for their liberty they seldom get anything for their victory, but new masters.
Halifax, Edward F.
Every revolutionary ends up by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic.
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
We used to think that revolutions are the cause of change. Actually it is the other way around: change prepares the ground for revolution.
The revolutionary spirit is mighty convenient in this, that it frees one from all scruples as regards ideas. Its hard absolute optimism is repulsive to my mind by the menace of fanaticism and intolerance it contains. No doubt one should smile at these things; but, imperfect Esthete, I am no better Philosopher. All claim to special righteousness awakens in me that scorn and anger from which a philosophical mind should be free.
In revolutions the occasions may be trifling but great interest are at stake.
You cannot make a revolution in white gloves.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Most revolutionaries are potential Tories, because they imagine that everything can be put right by altering the shape of society; once that change is effected, as it sometimes is, they see no need for any other.
History teaches us that the great revolutions aren't started by people who are utterly down and out, without hope and vision. They take place when people begin to live a little better -- and when they see how much yet remains to be achieved.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
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
In this Revolution no plans have been written for retreat.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Thinkers prepare the revolution and bandits carry it out.
Whether a revolutions succeeds or fails people of great hearts will always be sacrificed to it.
People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth.
The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
At the crash of economic collapse of which the rumblings can already be heard, the sleeping soldiers of the proletariat will awake as at the fanfare of the Last Judgment and the corpses of the victims of the struggle will arise and demand an accounting from those who are loaded down with curses.
All successful revolutions are the kicking in of a rotten door. The violence of revolutions is the violence of men who charge into a vacuum.
Galbraith, John Kenneth
If not us, who? If not now, when?
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
All partisan movements add to the fullness of our understanding of society as a whole. They never detract; or, in any case, one must not allow them to do so. Experience adds to experience.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
Although a system may cease to exist in the legal sense or as a structure of power, its values (or anti-values), its philosophy, its teachings remain in us. They rule our thinking, our conduct, our attitude to others. The situation is a demonic paradox: we have toppled the system but we still carry its genes.
A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.
Evolution is the law of policies: Darwin said it, Socrates endorsed it, Cuvier proved it and established it for all time in his paper on The Survival of the Fittest. These are illustrious names, this is a mighty doctrine: nothing can ever remove it from its firm base, nothing dissolve it, but evolution.
Independence in the end is the fruit of injustice.
