Quotations
Quote of the Day

The common goal of 22 million Afro-Americans is respect as human beings, the God-given right to be a human being. Our common goal is to obtain the human rights that America has been denying us. We can never get civil rights in America until our human rights are first restored. We will never be recognized as citizens there until we are first recognized as humans.
View quotes by Malcom X

'Who knows? Maybe I am insane, too, it runs in my family, but I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human. I felt very puny as a human. I though, 'F*ck that. I want to be a superhuman.'
View quotes by David Bowie

Custom, then, is the great guide of human life (An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding)
View quotes by David Hume

If we wish to know the force of human genius, we should read Shakespeare. If we wish to see the insignificance of human learning, we may study his commentators.
View quotes by William Hazlitt

The ultimate end of all revolutionary social change is to establish the sanctity of human life, the dignity of man, the right of every human being to liberty and well-being.
View quotes by Emma Goldman

God wants man to fulfill his commands as a human being and with the quality peculiar to human beings.
View quotes by Martin Buber

In bed we laugh, in bed we cry; and born in bed, in bed we die; the near approach a bed may show, of human bliss to human woe.
View quotes by Isaac De Benserade

The human spirit can be indomitable and it is this rare quality that is not at all to be expected that makes survivors of us all, the human race in the grand scheme of things.
View quotes by Martha Gellhorn

The contrast couldn't be clearer between the intentions and the hearts of those of us who care deeply about human rights and human liberty and those who kill. [on the terrorist bombings in London, July 7, 2005]
View quotes by George W Bush

I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom. In itself, homosexuality is as limiting as heterosexuality: the ideal should be to be capable of loving a woman or a man; either, a human being, without feeling fear, restraint, or obligation.
View quotes by Simone De Beauvoir

If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place.
View quotes by Margaret Mead

Government is a contrivance of human wisdom to provide for human wants. People have the right to expect that these wants will be provided for by this wisdom.
View quotes by Jimmy Carter

That's absolutely how I am. Like race, black or white - I see absolutely no difference. Because for me it's just such a reality. You are human, I am human, let's try to accept one another for whatever we are.
View quotes by Neve Campbell

The notion that human life is sacred just because it is human life is medieval. [Independent on Sunday]
View quotes by Peter Singer

Every hardship; every joy; every temptation is a challenge of the spirit; that the human soul may prove itself. The great chain of necessity wherewith we are bound has divine significance; and nothing happens which has not some service in working out the sublime destiny of the human soul.
View quotes by Henry Fielding

No society has been able to abolish human sadness, no political system can deliver us from the pain of living, from our fear of death, our thirst for the absolute. It is the human condition that directs the social condition, not vice versa.
View quotes by Eugene Ionesco

The cynic is one who never sees a good quality in a man and never fails to see a bad one. He is the human owl, vigilant in darkness and blind to light, mousing for vermin, and never seeing noble game. The cynic puts all human actions into two classes - openly bad and secretly bad.
View quotes by Henry Ward Beecher

No human being is innocent, but there is a class of innocent human actions called Games.
View quotes by W H Auden

The chief obstacle to the progress of the human race is the human race.
View quotes by Don Marquis

America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense, it is the other way around. Human rights invented America.
View quotes by Jimmy Carter
