Humankind quotes
Humankind
1.

Man has, as it were, become a kind of prosthetic God. When he puts on all his auxiliary organs, he is truly magnificent; but those organs have not grown on him and they still give him much trouble at times.

- Freud, Sigmund
2.

The human race is a zone of living things that should be defined by tracing its confines.

- Calvino, Italo
3.

Man, became man through work, who stepped out of the animal kingdom as transformer of the natural into the artificial, who became therefore the magician, man the creator of social reality, will always stay the great magician, will always be Prometheus bringing fire from heaven to earth, will always be Orpheus enthralling nature with his music. Not until humanity itself dies will art die.

- Fischer, Ernst
4.

The course of human history is determined, not by what happens in the skies, but by what takes place in our hearts.

- Kent, Sir Arthur
5.

Considered logically this concept is not identical with the totality of sense impressions referred to; but it is an arbitrary creation of the human (or animal) mind.

- Einstein, Albert
6.

There are two kinds of men who never amount to much -- those who cannot do what they are told and those who can do nothing else.

- Curtis, Cyrus H. K
7.

The decay of decency in the modern age, the rebellion against law and good faith, the treatment of human beings as things, as the mere instruments of power and ambition, is without a doubt the consequence of the decay of the belief in man as something more than an animal animated by highly conditioned reflexes and chemical reactions. For, unless man is something more than that, he has no rights that anyone is bound to respect, and there are no limitations upon his conduct which he is bound to obey.

- Lippmann, Walter
8.

I am not an Athenian, nor a Greek, but a citizen of the world.

- Socrates
9.

If you think that every bad thing that has been done on the face of the earth has been done by man, you're right -- but so has every good thing.

10.

The horror of wedlock, the most appalling, the most loathsome of all the bonds humankind has devised for its own discomfort and degradation.

- Sade, Marquis De
11.

I have found little that is good about human beings on the whole. In my experience most of them are trash, no matter whether they publicly subscribe to this or that ethical doctrine or to none at all. That is something that you cannot say aloud, or perhaps even think.

- Freud, Sigmund
12.

Man is a beautiful machine that works very badly.

- Mencken, H. L.
13.

When all is done, human life is, at the greatest and the best, but like a froward child, that must be played with and humored a little to keep it quiet till it falls asleep, and then the care is over.

- Temple, Sir William
14.

There are realities we all share, regardless of our nationality, language, or individual tastes. As we need food, so do we need emotional nourishment: love, kindness, appreciation, and support from others. We need to understand our environment and our relationship to it. We need to fulfill certain inner hungers: the need for happiness, for peace of mind for wisdom.

- Walters, J. Donald
15.

The race of man, while sheep in credulity, are wolves for conformity.

- Doren, Carl Van
16.

If we consider the superiority of the human species, the size of its brain, its powers of thinking, language and organization, we can say this: were there the slightest possibility that another rival or superior species might appear, on earth or elsewhere, man would use every means at his disposal to destroy it.

- Baudrillard, Jean
17.

Though man is the only beast that can write, he has small reason to be proud of it. When he utters something that is wise it is nothing that the river horse does not know, and most of his creations are the result of accident.

- Dahlberg, Edward
18.

I am a member of the rabble in good standing.

- Pegler, Westbrook
19.

Consider your breed; you were not made to live like beasts, but to follow virtue and knowledge.

- Dante Alighieri
20.

There are two kinds of people in the world -- those you love, and those you don't understand.
