Evolution quotes
Evolution
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.

- Spencer, Herbert
A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he can't sit on it.

- Inge, Dean William R.
INSURRECTION, n. An unsuccessful revolution. Disaffection's failure to substitute misrule for bad government.

- Ambrose Bierce
We are the men of intrinsic value, who can strike our fortunes out of ourselves, whose worth is independent of accidents in life, or revolutions in government: we have heads to get money, and hearts to spend it.

- Farquhar, George
Constant revolutionizing of production distinguish the bourgeois epoch from all earlier ones. All fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices are swept away, all new-formed ones become antiquated before they can ossify. All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses, his real conditions of life, and his relations with his kind.

- Marx, Karl
One of the best things to come out of the home computer revolution could be the general and widespread understanding of how severely limited logic really is.

- Herbert, Frank
The only successful revolution of this century is totalitarianism.

- Levy, Bernard-Henri
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
The fact of evolution is the backbone of biology, and biology is thus in the peculiar position of being a science founded on an improved theory, is it then a science or faith?

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

HANDKERCHIEF, n. A small square of silk or linen, used in various ignoble offices about the face and especially serviceable at funerals to conceal the lack of tears. The handkerchief is of recent invention; our ancestors knew nothing of it and intrusted its duties to the sleeve. Shakespeare's introducing it into the play of "Othello" is an anachronism: Desdemona dried her nose with her skirt, as Dr. Mary Walker and other reformers have done with their coattails in our own day -- an evidence that revolutions sometimes go backward.

- Ambrose Bierce
Boredom is always counter-revolutionary. Always.

- Debord, Guy
I am thirty-three -- the age of the good Sans-culotte Jesus; an age fatal to revolutionists.

- Desmoulins, Camille
It is well enough that the people of this nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.

- Henry Ford
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.
One revolution is like one cocktail, it just gets you organized for the next.

- Rogers, Will
Today, the theory of evolution is an accepted fact for everyone but a fundamentalist minority, whose objections are based not on reasoning but on doctrinaire adherence to religious principles.

- James D. Watson
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
If any ambitious man have a fancy to revolutionize, at one effort, the universal world of human thought, human opinion, and human sentiment, the opportunity is his own -- the road to immortal renown lies straight, open, and unencumbered before him. All that he has to do is to write and publish a very little book. Its title should be simple -- a few plain words -- My Heart Laid Bare. But -- this little book must be true to its title.

- Poe, Edgar Allan
Revolutions always come around again. That's why they're called revolutions.

- Terry Pratchett
