Revolution begins with the self, in the self.
Best Quotes about Evolution
Evolution is gaining the psychic zones of the world...life, being and ascent of consciousness, could not continue to advance indefinitely along its line without transforming itself in depth. The being who is the object of his own reflection, in consequence, of that very doubling back upon himself becomes in a flash able to raise himself to a new sphere.
Chardin, Pierre Teilhard De
Natural selection, as it has operated in human history, favors not only the clever but the murderous.
The question is this -- Is man an ape or an angel? My Lord, I am on the side of the angels. I repudiate with indignation and abhorrence these new fanged theories.
Whether a revolutions succeeds or fails people of great hearts will always be sacrificed to it.
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
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
Revolutions are always verbose.
The excessive increase of anything causes a reaction in the opposite direction.
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.
Revolution is an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment.
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.
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.
The pre-human creature from which man evolved was unlike any other living thing in its malicious viciousness toward its own kind. Humanization was not a leap forward but a groping toward survival.
Independence in the end is the fruit of injustice.
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
If we glance at the most important revolutions in history, we see at once that the greatest number of these originated in the periodical revolutions of the human mind.
Humboldt, Karl Wilhelm Von
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.
The brutalities of progress are called revolutions. When they are over we realize this: that the human race has been roughly handled, but that it has advanced.
Revolutions are not made for export.
The main object of a revolution is the liberation of man... not the interpretation and application of some transcendental ideology.
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.
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.
In revolutions the occasions may be trifling but great interest are at stake.
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.
The main effect of a real revolution is perhaps that it sweeps away those who do not know how to wish, and brings to the front men with insatiable appetites for action, power and all that the world has to offer.
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.
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.
Revolutionary politics, revolutionary art, and oh, the revolutionary mind, is the dullest thing on earth. When we open a revolutionary review, or read a revolutionary speech, we yawn our heads off. It is true, there is nothing else. Everything is correctly, monotonously, dishearteningly revolutionary. What a stupid word! What a stale fuss!
To be a revolutionary you have to be human being. You have to care about people who have no power.
Men are made uneasy; they flinch; they cannot bear the sudden light; a general restlessness supervenes; the face of society is disturbed, or perhaps convulsed; old interests and old beliefs have been destroyed before new ones have been created. These symptoms are the precursors of revolution; they have preceded all the great changes through which the world has passed.
Buckle, Henry Thomas
On the first day of a revolution he is a treasure; on the second he ought to be shot.
So they united, and the Communist revolution took the chain from their legs and wound it around their necks.
The word revolution itself has become not only a dead relic of Leftism, but a key to the deadendedness of male politics: the revolution of a wheel which returns in the end to the same place; the revolving door of a politics which has liberated women only to use them, and only within the limits of male tolerance.
It is hard for the ape to believe he descended from man.
Mencken, H. L.
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 spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)
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.
Man has lost the basic skill of the ape, the ability to scratch its back. Which gave it extraordinary independence, and the liberty to associate for reasons other than the need for mutual back-scratching.
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
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
When people contend for their liberty they seldom get anything for their victory, but new masters.
Halifax, Edward F.
The historic ascent of humanity, taken as a whole, may be summarized as a succession of victories of consciousness over blind forces -- in nature, in society, in man himself.
Every revolutionary ends up by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic.
In this Revolution no plans have been written for retreat.
King Jr. Martin Luther
All revolutions devour their own children.
The children of the revolution are always ungrateful, and the revolution must be grateful that it is so.
Guin, Ursula K. Le
One revolution is like one cocktail, it just gets you organized for the next.
A revolution does not last more than fifteen years, the period which coincides with the flourishing of a generation.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y
