Riots are the voices of the unheard.
- King Jr. Martin Luther
Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De

5.
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

6.
A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he can't sit on it.
Inge, Dean William R.

7.
On the first day of a revolution he is a treasure; on the second he ought to be shot.

8.
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

9.
Revolutions are not made for export.
Khrushchev, Nikita

10.
The spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)

11.
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

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.
A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.
Zedong, Mao

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
It is hard for the ape to believe he descended from man.
Mencken, H. L.

18.
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
Lewis, Wyndham

19.
Revolutions are always verbose.
Trotsky, Leon

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
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

24.
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
Adams, John

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.
Nkrumah, Kwame

31.
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed -- that is the meaning of evolution.
Greene, Graham

32.
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
Djilas, Milovan

33.
If not us, who? If not now, when?

34.
Revolution begins with the self, in the self.
Bambara, Toni Cade

35.
Revolution is an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment.
Bierce, Ambrose

36.
One of the stupidest theories of Western life.
Muggeridge, Malcolm

37.
Independence in the end is the fruit of injustice.
Voltaire

38.
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.

39.
Natural selection, as it has operated in human history, favors not only the clever but the murderous.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

40.
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

41.
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

42.
It is easier to run a revolution than a government.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.

43.
Every revolutionary ends up by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic.
Camus, Albert

44.
The main object of a revolution is the liberation of man... not the interpretation and application of some transcendental ideology.
Genet, Jean

45.
You cannot make a revolution in white gloves.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

46.
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

47.
A revolution does not last more than fifteen years, the period which coincides with the flourishing of a generation.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y

48.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders

49.
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

50.
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
