Evolution

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
Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
The main object of a revolution is the liberation of man... not the interpretation and application of some transcendental ideology.
Genet, Jean

2.
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

3.
Two million years from now the scientists can start a row by claming that the creatures of that period descended from us.

4.
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

5.
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

6.
I believe that our Heavenly Father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
Twain, Mark

7.
The excessive increase of anything causes a reaction in the opposite direction.
Plato

8.
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

9.
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

10.
The worst of revolutions is a restoration.
Fox, Charles James

11.
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

12.
Every revolutionary ends up by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic.
Camus, Albert

13.
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

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
A revolution does not last more than fifteen years, the period which coincides with the flourishing of a generation.
Gasset, Jose Ortega Y

20.
I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
Adams, John

21.
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

22.
On the first day of a revolution he is a treasure; on the second he ought to be shot.

23.
Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.
Nkrumah, Kwame

24.
Darwinian man, though well-behaved, at best is only a monkey shaved.
Gilbert, W. S.

25.
One revolution is like one cocktail, it just gets you organized for the next.
Rogers, Will

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
Djilas, Milovan

30.
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

31.
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

32.
It is hard for the ape to believe he descended from man.
Mencken, H. L.

33.
In this Revolution no plans have been written for retreat.
King Jr. Martin Luther

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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Revolution is an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment.
Bierce, Ambrose

39.
Revolution today is taken for granted, and in consequence becomes rather dull.
Lewis, Wyndham

40.
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

41.
Revolutions are not made for export.
Khrushchev, Nikita

42.
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.

43.
I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute.
Hoffman, Abbie

44.
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

45.
It is easier to run a revolution than a government.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.

46.
In revolutions the occasions may be trifling but great interest are at stake.
Aristotle

47.
A great revolution is never the fault of the people, but of the government.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

49.
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

50.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De
