Whether a revolutions succeeds or fails people of great hearts will always be sacrificed to it.
Best Quotes about Evolution
In revolutions the occasions may be trifling but great interest are at stake.
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.
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose, but their chains. .Workers of the world unite!
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 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
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!
Natural selection, as it has operated in human history, favors not only the clever but the murderous.
Whether a revolutions succeeds or fails people of great hearts will always be sacrificed to it.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
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.
I believe that our Heavenly Father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
It is hard for the ape to believe he descended from man.
Mencken, H. L.
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.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders
So they united, and the Communist revolution took the chain from their legs and wound it around their necks.
If not us, who? If not now, when?
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
On the first day of a revolution he is a treasure; on the second he ought to be shot.
The spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)
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 differences between revolution in art and revolution in politics are enormous. Revolution in art lies not in the will to destroy but in the revelation of what has already been destroyed. Art kills only the dead.
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
To be a revolutionary you have to be human being. You have to care about people who have no power.
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 children of the revolution are always ungrateful, and the revolution must be grateful that it is so.
Guin, Ursula K. Le
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
The more specific idea of Evolution now reached is -- a change from an indefinite, incoherent homogeneity to a definite, coherent heterogeneity, accompanying the dissipation of motion and integration of matter.
It is easier to run a revolution than a government.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.
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.
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
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.
You cannot make a revolution in white gloves.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
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.
When people contend for their liberty they seldom get anything for their victory, but new masters.
Halifax, Edward F.
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
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.
A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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 probability of life originating from accident is comparable to the probability of the unabridged dictionary resulting from an explosion in a printing shop.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
One of the stupidest theories of Western life.
Every revolutionary ends up by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic.
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.
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.
