mankind

More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No government power can be abused long. Mankind will not bear it. There is a remedy in human nature against tyranny, that will keep us safe under every form of government.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I call upon the scientific community in our country, those who gave us nuclear weapons, to turn their great talents now to the cause of mankind and world peace: to give us the means of rendering these nuclear weapons impotent and obsolete.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
They act as if they supposed that to be very sanguine about the general improvement of mankind is a virtue that relieves them from taking trouble about any improvement in particular.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand scene and design in providence, for the illumination of the ignorant and the emancipation of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The best reason why Monarchy is a strong government is, that it is an intelligible government. The mass of mankind understand it, and they hardly anywhere in the world understand any other.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One might well say that mankind is divisible into two great classes: hosts and guests.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nature has placed mankind under the government of two sovereign masters, pain and pleasure... they govern us in all we do, in all we say, in all we think: every effort we can make to throw off our subjection, will serve but to demonstrate and confirm it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Wilson adventured for the whole of the human race. Not as a servant, but as a champion. So pure was this motive, so unfrocked with anything that his worst enemies could find, except the mildest and most excusable, a personal vanity, practically the minimum to be human, that in a sense his adventure is that of humanity itself. In Wilson, the whole of mankind breaks camp, sets out from home and wrestles with the universe and its gods.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The American experience stirred mankind from discovery to exploration. From the cautious quest for what they knew (or thought they knew) was out there, into an enthusiastic reaching to the unknown. These are two substantially different kinds of human enterprise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most important American addition to the World Experience was the simple surprising fact of America. We have helped prepare mankind for all its later surprises.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As far as many statistical series that are related to activities of mankind are concerned, the date that divides human history into two equal parts is well within living memory. The world of today is as different from the world I was born in as that world was from Julius Caesar s. I was born in the middle of human history, to date, roughly. Almost as much has happened since I was born as happened before.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For once you must try not to shirk the facts: mankind is kept alive by bestial acts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At no previous period has mankind been faced by a half-century which so paradoxically united violence and progress. Its greater and lesser wars and long series of major assassinations have been strangely combined with the liberation of more societies and individuals than ever before in history, and by the transformation of millions of second-class citizens -- women, workers and the members of subject races -- to a stage at which first-rate achievement is no longer inhibited even if opportunities are not yet complete.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What mankind wants is not talent; it is purpose.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The greatest horrors in the history of mankind are not due to the ambition of the Napoleons or the vengeance of the Agamemnons, but to the doctrinaire philosophers. The theories of the sentimentalist Rousseau inspired the integrity of the passionless Robespierre. The cold-blooded calculations of Karl Marx led to the judicial and business-like operations of the Cheka.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The art of governing mankind by deceiving them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I doubt if a single individual could be found from the whole of mankind free from some form of insanity. The only difference is one of degree. A man who sees a gourd and takes it for his wife is called insane because this happens to very few people.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By a Carpenter mankind was made, and only by that Carpenter can mankind be remade.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What vast additions to the conveniences and comforts of living might mankind have acquired, if the money spent in wars had been employed in works of public utility; what an extension of agriculture even to the tops of our mountains; what rivers rendered navigable, or joined by canals; what bridges, aqueducts, new roads, and other public works, edifices, and improvements might not have been obtained by spending those millions in doing good, which in the last war have been spent in doing mischief.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A politician divides mankind into two classes; tools and enemies.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The ordinary man with extraordinary power is the chief danger for mankind -- not the fiend or the sadist.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The march of invention has clothed mankind with powers of which a century ago the boldest imagination could not have dreamt.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The history of mankind is his character.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Idealists are foolish enough to throw caution to the winds. They have advanced mankind and have enriched the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
She who makes her husband and her children happy, who reclaims the one from vice, and trains up the other to virtue, is a much greater character than the ladies described in romance, whose whole occupation is to murder mankind with shafts from their quiver or their eyes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do not commit the error common among the young, of assuming that if you cannot save the whole of mankind you have failed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no alleviation for the sufferings of mankind except veracity of thought and of action, and the resolute facing of the world as it is when the garment of make-believe by which pious hands have hidden its uglier features is stripped off.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

He is a benefactor of mankind who contracts the great rules of life into short sentences, that may be easily impressed on the memory, and so recur habitually to the mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The wise man who is not heeded is counted a fool, and the fool who proclaims the general folly first and loudest passes for a prophet and Fhrer, and sometimes it is luckily the other way round as well, or else mankind would long since have perished of stupidity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The brotherhood of man is evoked by particular men according to their circumstances. But it seldom extends to all men. In the name of our freedom and our brotherhood we are prepared to blow up the other half of mankind and to be blown up in our turn.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He knows very little of mankind who expects, by any facts or reasoning, to convince a determined party man.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another. But ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself million upon million, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is swollen to a horror.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My whole working philosophy is that the only stable happiness for mankind is that it shall live married in blessed union to woman-kind --intimacy, physical and psychical between a man and his wife. I wish to add that my state of bliss is by no means perfect.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To live in mankind is far more than to live in a name.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The person who knows one thing and does it better than anyone else, even if it only be the art of raising lentils, receives the crown he merits. If he raises all his energy to that end, he is a benefactor of mankind and its rewarded as such.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For if the proper study of mankind is man, it is evidently more sensible to occupy yourself with the coherent, substantial and significant creatures of fiction than with the irrational and shadowy figures of real life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The history of mankind is the history of ideas.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
However far modern science and techniques have fallen short of their inherent possibilities, they have taught mankind at least one lesson: Nothing is impossible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fanatics are picturesque, mankind would rather see gestures than listen to reasons.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If all feeling for grace and beauty were not extinguished in the mass of mankind at the actual moment, such a method of locomotion as cycling could never have found acceptance; no man or woman with the slightest aesthetic sense could assume the ludicrous position necessary for it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let us do our duty, in our shop in our kitchen, in the market, the street, the office, the school, the home, just as faithfully as if we stood in the front rank of some great battle, and knew that victory for mankind depends on our bravery, strength, and skill. When we do that, the humblest of us will be serving in that great army which achieves the welfare of the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Without God there is for mankind no purpose, no goal, no hope, only a wavering future, an eternal dread of every darkness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I find myself... hoping a total end of all the unhappy divisions of mankind by party-spirit, which at best is but the madness of many for the gain of a few.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A religion so cheerless, a philosophy so sorrowful, could never have succeeded with the masses of mankind if presented only as a system of metaphysics. Buddhism owed its success to its catholic spirit and its beautiful morality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most new things are not good, and die an early death; but those which push themselves forward and by slow degrees force themselves on the attention of mankind are the unconscious productions of human wisdom, and must have honest consideration, and must not be made the subject of unreasoning prejudice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The mechanism that directs government cannot be virtuous, because it is impossible to thwart every crime, to protect oneself from every criminal without being criminal too; that which directs corrupt mankind must be corrupt itself; and it will never be by means of virtue, virtue being inert and passive, that you will maintain control over vice, which is ever active: the governor must be more energetic than the governed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
