Clemency is also a revolutionary measure.
Best Quotes about Evolution
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.
The worst of revolutions is a restoration.
Fox, Charles James
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.
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
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.
When people contend for their liberty they seldom get anything for their victory, but new masters.
Halifax, Edward F.
If you want a symbolic gesture, don't burn the flag, wash it.
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.
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
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.
All revolutions devour their own children.
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.
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
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders
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.
It is almost never when a state of things is the most detestable that it is smashed, but when, beginning to improve, it permits men to breathe, to reflect, to communicate their thoughts with each other, and to gauge by what they already have the extent of their rights and their grievances. The weight, although less heavy, seems then all the more unbearable.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
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.
On the first day of a revolution he is a treasure; on the second he ought to be shot.
Thinkers prepare the revolution and bandits carry it out.
The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations. This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution.
I had such a wonderful feeling last night, walking beneath the dark sky while cannon boomed on my right and guns on my left the feeling that I could change the world only by being there.
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed -- that is the meaning of evolution.
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.
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.
Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose, but their chains. .Workers of the world unite!
Revolution, in order to be creative, cannot do without either a moral or metaphysical rule to balance the insanity of history.
You cannot make a revolution in white gloves.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
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.
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.
I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute.
Natural selection, as it has operated in human history, favors not only the clever but the murderous.
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
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.
It is easier to run a revolution than a government.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.
It is hard for the ape to believe he descended from man.
Mencken, H. L.
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
The excessive increase of anything causes a reaction in the opposite direction.
In this Revolution no plans have been written for retreat.
King Jr. Martin Luther
A revolution does not last more than fifteen years, the period which coincides with the flourishing of a generation.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.
Every successful revolution puts on in time the robes of the tyrant it has deposed.
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.
We used to think that revolutions are the cause of change. Actually it is the other way around: change prepares the ground for revolution.
Revolution begins with the self, in the self.
Bambara, Toni Cade
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
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
A revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle between the future and the past.
