Evolution

Revolutions are always verbose.
- Trotsky, Leon
Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
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

2.
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.

3.
If not us, who? If not now, when?

4.
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.
Sand, George

5.
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.
Ellis, Havelock

6.
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.
Lorenz, Konrad

7.
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.
Conrad, Joseph

8.
I feel my belief in sacrifice and struggle getting stronger. I despise the kind of existence that clings to the miserly trifles of comfort and self-interest. I think that a man should not live beyond the age when he begins to deteriorate, when the flame that lighted the brightest moment of his life has weakened.
Castro, Fidel

9.
The spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)

10.
Revolution is an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment.
Bierce, Ambrose

11.
One revolution is like one cocktail, it just gets you organized for the next.
Rogers, Will

12.
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
Djilas, Milovan

13.
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.
Hooker, Richard

14.
Darwinian man, though well-behaved, at best is only a monkey shaved.
Gilbert, W. S.

15.
Revolution, in order to be creative, cannot do without either a moral or metaphysical rule to balance the insanity of history.
Camus, Albert

16.
The excessive increase of anything causes a reaction in the opposite direction.
Plato

17.
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
Wald, George

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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!
Lewis, Wyndham

21.
In this Revolution no plans have been written for retreat.
King Jr. Martin Luther

22.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De

23.
To be a revolutionary you have to be human being. You have to care about people who have no power.
Fonda, Jane

24.
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.
Adams, John

25.
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.

26.
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.

27.
Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.
Nkrumah, Kwame

28.
Every revolutionary ends up by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic.
Camus, Albert

29.
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.
Disraeli, Benjamin

30.
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

31.
A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he can't sit on it.
Inge, Dean William R.

32.
It is hard for the ape to believe he descended from man.
Mencken, H. L.

33.
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

34.
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
Lewis, Wyndham

35.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders

36.
I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute.
Hoffman, Abbie

37.
The main object of a revolution is the liberation of man... not the interpretation and application of some transcendental ideology.
Genet, Jean

38.
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.
Trotsky, Leon

39.
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.
Walker, Alice

40.
Every successful revolution puts on in time the robes of the tyrant it has deposed.
Tuchman, Barbara

41.
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.
Rosenberg, Harold

42.
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.
Diderot, Denis

43.
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.
Zedong, Mao

44.
Independence in the end is the fruit of injustice.
Voltaire

45.
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.
Marx, Karl

46.
You cannot make a revolution in white gloves.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

47.
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.
Hoffer, Eric

48.
So they united, and the Communist revolution took the chain from their legs and wound it around their necks.
Bonom, Samuel

49.
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.

50.
A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
