Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
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

2.
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.

3.
A revolution does not last more than fifteen years, the period which coincides with the flourishing of a generation.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y

4.
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
Lewis, Wyndham

5.
All revolutions devour their own children.
Rohm, Ernst

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

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Revolution begins with the self, in the self.
Bambara, Toni Cade

10.
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

11.
A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

12.
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

13.
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

14.
In this Revolution no plans have been written for retreat.
King Jr. Martin Luther

15.
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
Djilas, Milovan

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Evolution has developed man to such a high degree that he builds zoos to keep his ancestors in cages.

20.
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

21.
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.

22.
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

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.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute.
Hoffman, Abbie

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

31.
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

32.
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

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

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

35.
The excessive increase of anything causes a reaction in the opposite direction.
Plato

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.
Revolutions are always verbose.
Trotsky, Leon

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.
All partisan movements add to the fullness of our understanding of society as a whole. They never detract; or, in any case, one must not allow them to do so. Experience adds to experience.
Walker, Alice

40.
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

41.
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
Wald, George

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

43.
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

44.
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

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.
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

47.
Natural selection, as it has operated in human history, favors not only the clever but the murderous.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

48.
Revolution, in order to be creative, cannot do without either a moral or metaphysical rule to balance the insanity of history.
Camus, Albert

49.
Thinkers prepare the revolution and bandits carry it out.
Azuela, Mariano

50.
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
