Evolution Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evolution

1.
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

2.
All the evolution we know of proceeds from the vague to the definite.
Peirce, Charles Sanders

3.
The worst of revolutions is a restoration.
Fox, Charles James

4.
No one makes a revolution by himself; and there are some revolutions which humanity accomplishes without quite knowing how, because it is everybody who takes them in hand.
Sand, George

5.
We are the products of editing, rather than of authorship.
Wald, George

6.
The scrupulous and the just, the noble, humane, and devoted natures; the unselfish and the intelligent may begin a movement -- but it passes away from them. They are not the leaders of a revolution. They are its victims.
Conrad, Joseph

7.
I was probably the only revolutionary referred to as cute.
Hoffman, Abbie

8.
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

9.
So they united, and the Communist revolution took the chain from their legs and wound it around their necks.
Bonom, Samuel

10.
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

11.
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

12.
The spirit of revolution, the spirit of insurrection, is a spirit radically opposed to liberty.
Guizot, Francois (Pierre Guillaume)

13.
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

14.
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

15.
A man may build himself a throne of bayonets, but he can't sit on it.
Inge, Dean William R.

16.
One revolution is like one cocktail, it just gets you organized for the next.
Rogers, Will

17.
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

18.
In a revolution, as in a novel. the most difficult part to invent is the end.
Tocqueville, Alexis De

19.
A revolution is not a bed of roses. A revolution is a struggle between the future and the past.
Castro, Fidel

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Thinkers prepare the revolution and bandits carry it out.
Azuela, Mariano

23.
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

24.
In this Revolution no plans have been written for retreat.
King Jr. Martin Luther

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Revolutions are always verbose.
Trotsky, Leon

30.
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

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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.

34.
I believe that our Heavenly Father invented man because he was disappointed in the monkey.
Twain, Mark

35.
Darwinian man, though well-behaved, at best is only a monkey shaved.
Gilbert, W. S.

36.
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

37.
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed -- that is the meaning of evolution.
Greene, Graham

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Every revolutionary ends up by becoming either an oppressor or a heretic.
Camus, Albert

41.
It is easier to run a revolution than a government.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.

42.
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

43.
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

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.
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

46.
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

47.
Revolution begins with the self, in the self.
Bambara, Toni Cade

48.
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

49.
Normal life cannot sustain revolutionary attitudes for long.
Djilas, Milovan

50.
Revolution is an abrupt change in the form of misgovernment.
Bierce, Ambrose
