Evolution

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
Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
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

2.
The excessive increase of anything causes a reaction in the opposite direction.
Plato

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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.

6.
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.

7.
Although a system may cease to exist in the legal sense or as a structure of power, its values (or anti-values), its philosophy, its teachings remain in us. They rule our thinking, our conduct, our attitude to others. The situation is a demonic paradox: we have toppled the system but we still carry its genes.
Kapuscinski, Ryszard

8.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders

9.
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.
Castro, Fidel

10.
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed -- that is the meaning of evolution.
Greene, Graham

11.
A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he can't sit on it.
Inge, Dean William R.

12.
If not us, who? If not now, when?

13.
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

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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
More and more, revolution has found itself delivered into the hands of its bureaucrats and doctrinaires on the one hand, and to the enfeebled and bewildered masses on the other.
Camus, Albert

18.
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

19.
The revolutionary spirit is mighty convenient in this, that it frees one from all scruples as regards ideas. Its hard absolute optimism is repulsive to my mind by the menace of fanaticism and intolerance it contains. No doubt one should smile at these things; but, imperfect Esthete, I am no better Philosopher. All claim to special righteousness awakens in me that scorn and anger from which a philosophical mind should be free.
Conrad, Joseph

20.
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

21.
The dead have been awakened -- shall I sleep? The world's at war with tyrants -- shall I crouch? the harvest's ripe -- and shall I pause to reap? I slumber not; the thorn is in my couch; Each day a trumpet soundeth in mine ear, its echo in my heart.
Byron, Lord

22.
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

23.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

24.
Revolutions are notorious for allowing even non-participants -- even women! -- new scope for telling the truth since they are themselves such massive moments of truth, moments of such massive participation.
James, Selma

25.
A revolution does not last more than fifteen years, the period which coincides with the flourishing of a generation.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y

26.
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.
Twain, Mark

27.
Revolutions are always verbose.
Trotsky, Leon

28.
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
Adams, John

29.
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.
Herzen, Alexander

30.
So they united, and the Communist revolution took the chain from their legs and wound it around their necks.
Bonom, Samuel

31.
The children of the revolution are always ungrateful, and the revolution must be grateful that it is so.
Guin, Ursula K. Le

32.
The brutalities of progress are called revolutions. When they are over we realize this: that the human race has been roughly handled, but that it has advanced.
Hugo, Victor

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Whether a revolutions succeeds or fails people of great hearts will always be sacrificed to it.
Heine, Heinrich

36.
In revolutions the occasions may be trifling but great interest are at stake.
Aristotle

37.
People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth.
Vaneigem, Raoul

38.
Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.
Nkrumah, Kwame

39.
Riots are the voices of the unheard.
King Jr. Martin Luther

40.
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

41.
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.

42.
Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose, but their chains. .Workers of the world unite!
Marx, Karl

43.
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.
Russell, Bertrand

44.
On the first day of a revolution he is a treasure; on the second he ought to be shot.

45.
Most revolutionaries are potential Tories, because they imagine that everything can be put right by altering the shape of society; once that change is effected, as it sometimes is, they see no need for any other.
Orwell, George

46.
The probability of life originating from accident is comparable to the probability of the unabridged dictionary resulting from an explosion in a printing shop.
Conklin, Edward

47.
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

48.
You cannot make a revolution in white gloves.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

49.
The spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)

50.
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
