The main object of a revolution is the liberation of man... not the interpretation and application of some transcendental ideology.
Best Quotes about Evolution
We used to think that revolutions are the cause of change. Actually it is the other way around: change prepares the ground for revolution.
Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.
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.
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.
It is curious how there seems to be an instinctive disgust in Man for his nearest ancestors and relations. If only Darwin could conscientiously have traced man back to the Elephant or the Lion or the Antelope, how much ridicule and prejudice would have been spared to the doctrine of Evolution.
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.
The worst of revolutions is a restoration.
Fox, Charles James
One of the stupidest theories of Western life.
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.
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
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.
You said, They're harmless dreamers and they're loved by the people. -- What, I asked you, is harmless about a dreamer, and what, I asked you, is harmless about the love of the people? Revolution only needs good dreamers who remember their dreams.
The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
Darwinian man, though well-behaved, at best is only a monkey shaved.
Gilbert, W. S.
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.
The spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)
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.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
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.
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.
Revolutions are not made for export.
I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute.
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!
In revolutions the occasions may be trifling but great interest are at stake.
A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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 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.
A revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle between the future and the past.
Revolutions are always verbose.
You cannot make a revolution in white gloves.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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
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.
Revolution is an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders
The children of the revolution are always ungrateful, and the revolution must be grateful that it is so.
Guin, Ursula K. Le
Inferiors revolt in order that they may be equal, and equals that they may be superior. Such is the state of mind which creates revolutions.
Riots are the voices of the unheard.
King Jr. Martin Luther
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
I began revolution with 82 men. If I had [To] do it again, I do it with 10 or 15 and absolute faith. It does not matter how small you are if you have faith and plan of action.
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.
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.
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.
Clemency is also a revolutionary measure.
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.
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
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
If you want a symbolic gesture, don't burn the flag, wash it.
Independence in the end is the fruit of injustice.
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
I believe that our Heavenly Father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
