Evolution

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.
Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he can't sit on it.
Inge, Dean William R.

2.
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

3.
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
Adams, John

4.
When people contend for their liberty they seldom get anything for their victory, but new masters.
Halifax, Edward F.

5.
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

6.
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.

7.
I believe that our Heavenly Father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
Twain, Mark

8.
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

9.
The differences between revolution in art and revolution in politics are enormous. Revolution in art lies not in the will to destroy but in the revelation of what has already been destroyed. Art kills only the dead.
Rosenberg, Harold

10.
Revolutions are always verbose.
Trotsky, Leon

11.
Clemency is also a revolutionary measure.
Desmoulins, Camille

12.
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

13.
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
You cannot make a revolution in white gloves.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

18.
Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.
Nkrumah, Kwame

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
One of the stupidest theories of Western life.
Muggeridge, Malcolm

23.
It is easier to run a revolution than a government.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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.

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

30.
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

31.
Inferiors revolt in order that they may be equal, and equals that they may be superior. Such is the state of mind which creates revolutions.
Aristotle

32.
The spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)

33.
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

34.
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
Wald, George

35.
A revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle between the future and the past.
Castro, Fidel

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Independence in the end is the fruit of injustice.
Voltaire

40.
It is curious how there seems to be an instinctive disgust in Man for his nearest ancestors and relations. If only Darwin could conscientiously have traced man back to the Elephant or the Lion or the Antelope, how much ridicule and prejudice would have been spared to the doctrine of Evolution.
Ellis, Havelock

41.
Every successful revolution puts on in time the robes of the tyrant it has deposed.
Tuchman, Barbara

42.
A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

43.
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed -- that is the meaning of evolution.
Greene, Graham

44.
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

45.
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

46.
One revolution is like one cocktail, it just gets you organized for the next.
Rogers, Will

47.
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

48.
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

49.
If not us, who? If not now, when?

50.
So they united, and the Communist revolution took the chain from their legs and wound it around their necks.
Bonom, Samuel
