The worst of revolutions is a restoration.
- Fox, Charles James
Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
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

2.
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

3.
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.

4.
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

5.
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.
Russell, Bertrand

6.
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
Wald, George

7.
A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he can't sit on it.
Inge, Dean William R.

8.
Revolutions are not made for export.
Khrushchev, Nikita

9.
The main object of a revolution is the liberation of man... not the interpretation and application of some transcendental ideology.
Genet, Jean

10.
On the first day of a revolution he is a treasure; on the second he ought to be shot.

11.
At the crash of economic collapse of which the rumblings can already be heard, the sleeping soldiers of the proletariat will awake as at the fanfare of the Last Judgment and the corpses of the victims of the struggle will arise and demand an accounting from those who are loaded down with curses.
Liebknecht, Karl

12.
We used to think that revolutions are the cause of change. Actually it is the other way around: change prepares the ground for revolution.
Hoffer, Eric

13.
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

14.
Independence in the end is the fruit of injustice.
Voltaire

15.
Whether a revolutions succeeds or fails people of great hearts will always be sacrificed to it.
Heine, Heinrich

16.
It is hard for the ape to believe he descended from man.
Mencken, H. L.

17.
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

18.
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

19.
The worst of revolutions is a restoration.
Fox, Charles James

20.
The excessive increase of anything causes a reaction in the opposite direction.
Plato

21.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders

22.
Every revolutionary ends up by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic.
Camus, Albert

23.
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

24.
All revolutions devour their own children.
Rohm, Ernst

25.
Thinkers prepare the revolution and bandits carry it out.
Azuela, Mariano

26.
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.
Smith, Sydney

27.
Revolution, in order to be creative, cannot do without either a moral or metaphysical rule to balance the insanity of history.
Camus, Albert

28.
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

29.
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

30.
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.

31.
It is easier to run a revolution than a government.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.

32.
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed -- that is the meaning of evolution.
Greene, Graham

33.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De

34.
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

35.
To be a revolutionary you have to be human being. You have to care about people who have no power.
Fonda, Jane

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
If you want a symbolic gesture, don't burn the flag, wash it.
Thomas, Norman

40.
I believe that our Heavenly Father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
Twain, Mark

41.
You cannot make a revolution in white gloves.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

42.
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

43.
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.
Baudrillard, Jean

44.
Riots are the voices of the unheard.
King Jr. Martin Luther

45.
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

46.
Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.
Nkrumah, Kwame

47.
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

48.
Every successful revolution puts on in time the robes of the tyrant it has deposed.
Tuchman, Barbara

49.
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.
Williams, Tennessee

50.
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
Lewis, Wyndham
