Evolution

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
Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
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

2.
So they united, and the Communist revolution took the chain from their legs and wound it around their necks.
Bonom, Samuel

3.
History teaches us that the great revolutions aren't started by people who are utterly down and out, without hope and vision. They take place when people begin to live a little better -- and when they see how much yet remains to be achieved.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

4.
Revolution, in order to be creative, cannot do without either a moral or metaphysical rule to balance the insanity of history.
Camus, Albert

5.
I believe that our Heavenly Father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
Twain, Mark

6.
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

7.
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

8.
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

9.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.

13.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders

14.
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

15.
Natural selection, as it has operated in human history, favors not only the clever but the murderous.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

16.
Revolutions are always verbose.
Trotsky, Leon

17.
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

18.
The surest guide to the correctness of the path that women take is joy in the struggle. Revolution is the festival of the oppressed.
Greer, Germaine

19.
The historic ascent of humanity, taken as a whole, may be summarized as a succession of victories of consciousness over blind forces -- in nature, in society, in man himself.
Trotsky, Leon

20.
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

21.
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

22.
To be a revolutionary you have to be human being. You have to care about people who have no power.
Fonda, Jane

23.
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
Djilas, Milovan

24.
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
Wald, George

25.
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

26.
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

27.
A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

28.
The main object of a revolution is the liberation of man... not the interpretation and application of some transcendental ideology.
Genet, Jean

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
Lewis, Wyndham

32.
Independence in the end is the fruit of injustice.
Voltaire

33.
The excessive increase of anything causes a reaction in the opposite direction.
Plato

34.
If you want a symbolic gesture, don't burn the flag, wash it.
Thomas, Norman

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
It is hard for the ape to believe he descended from man.
Mencken, H. L.

40.
It is easier to run a revolution than a government.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.

41.
The spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)

42.
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

43.
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

44.
The children of the revolution are always ungrateful, and the revolution must be grateful that it is so.
Guin, Ursula K. Le

45.
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

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

47.
I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute.
Hoffman, Abbie

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

49.
A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he can't sit on it.
Inge, Dean William R.

50.
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
