Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
Every revolutionary ends up by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic.
Camus, Albert

2.
Revolutions are not made for export.
Khrushchev, Nikita

3.
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

4.
In revolutions the occasions may be trifling but great interest are at stake.
Aristotle

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.
Clemency is also a revolutionary measure.
Desmoulins, Camille

7.
Every successful revolution puts on in time the robes of the tyrant it has deposed.
Tuchman, Barbara

8.
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

9.
It is hard for the ape to believe he descended from man.
Mencken, H. L.

10.
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

11.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders

12.
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

13.
I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute.
Hoffman, Abbie

14.
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
Djilas, Milovan

15.
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

16.
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

17.
A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
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.

19.
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

20.
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.

21.
I had such a wonderful feeling last night, walking beneath the dark sky while cannon boomed on my right and guns on my left the feeling that I could change the world only by being there.
Butnariu, Viorica

22.
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

23.
A revolution does not last more than fifteen years, the period which coincides with the flourishing of a generation.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y

24.
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

25.
On the first day of a revolution he is a treasure; on the second he ought to be shot.

26.
All successful revolutions are the kicking in of a rotten door. The violence of revolutions is the violence of men who charge into a vacuum.
Galbraith, John Kenneth

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

28.
Revolutions are always verbose.
Trotsky, Leon

29.
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

30.
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

31.
A revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle between the future and the past.
Castro, Fidel

32.
The pre-human creature from which man evolved was unlike any other living thing in its malicious viciousness toward its own kind. Humanization was not a leap forward but a groping toward survival.
Hoffer, Eric

33.
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

34.
The spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)

35.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
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

40.
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
Wald, George

41.
When people contend for their liberty they seldom get anything for their victory, but new masters.
Halifax, Edward F.

42.
The worst of revolutions is a restoration.
Fox, Charles James

43.
Riots are the voices of the unheard.
King Jr. Martin Luther

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Revolution is an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment.
Bierce, Ambrose

47.
So they united, and the Communist revolution took the chain from their legs and wound it around their necks.
Bonom, Samuel

48.
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

49.
It is easier to run a revolution than a government.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.

50.
The main object of a revolution is the liberation of man... not the interpretation and application of some transcendental ideology.
Genet, Jean
