Sigmund Freud
“The behavior of a human being in sexual matters is often a prototype for the whole of his other modes of reaction in life.”
Sigmund Freud, Sexuality and the Psychology of Love

Criss Jami
“When I look at a person, I see a person - not a rank, not a class, not a title.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Toni Morrison
“This is the time for every artist in every genre to do what he or she does loudly and consistently. It doesn't matter to me what your position is. You've got to keep asserting the complexity and the originality of life, and the multiplicity of it, and the facets of it. This is about being a complex human being in the world, not about finding a villain. This is no time for anything else than the best that you've got.”
Toni Morrison

Israelmore Ayivor
“Contrary to popular opinion, leadership is not a reserved position for a particular group of people who were elected or appointed, ordained or enthroned. Leadership is self-made, self-retained, self-inculcated and then exposed through a faithful, sincere and examplary life.”
Israelmore Ayivor

Friedrich Nietzsche
“What have we in common with the rosebud, which trembles because a drop of dew is lying upon it?”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Garth Stein
“However, I don’t understand why people insist on pitting the concepts of evolution and creation against each other. Why can’t they see that spiritualism and science are one? That bodies evolve and souls evolve and the universe is a fluid place that marries them both in a wonderful package called a human being. What’s wrong with that idea?”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

M.F. Moonzajer
“I cannot give up on my values and beliefs for the sake of respecting someone else’s values and morals. Because those values explain who am I. I prefer struggling and even dying for what I believe and what I don’t believe.
Silence is not respect; it is not condemning brutality and cruelty, and neglecting your own existence as human being. I will be killed and so many others because of standing against the fallacy and misleading notion of religions. They will torture us and cut us in pieces alive and even won’t stop disrespecting our death bodies; that is how these monsters have been governing for hundreds thousands of years.”
M.F. Moonzajer

Joyce Vissell
“It is not about how much money we make or how big and powerful our work appears to others, it is about the love with which we put into each act of kindness toward another human being.”
Joyce Vissell

Israelmore Ayivor
“A young child is a leader to an elderly person once his purpose has a faithful, sincere and trustworthy influence on people. Leadership is not restricted to position and age; it is self-made and influencial. Everyone has this self-leadership quality.”
Israelmore Ayivor

Maggie Shayne
“<...> I’ve
never believed there is any animal more dangerous than a human being. I never will. It’s the intelligence. It’s the mind that makes it so.”
Maggie Shayne, Killing Me Softly

Alex Morritt
“How initially 'to get her in the sack' and subsequently to avoid 'her giving you the sack' are not identical dilemmas faced by the male species, but they sure have a bizarre habit of being bedfellows”
Alex Morritt, Impromptu Scribe

Israelmore Ayivor
“A true leader is still a leader even when he takes up servants' duty, provided he maintains a human face and added integrity to his self-retained qualities.”
Israelmore Ayivor

Imants Ziedonis
“Laiki nav svarīgi. Svarīgs ir cilvēks.”
Imants Ziedonis

Israelmore Ayivor
“The concept of leadership is abused by people who think a person becomes a leader when he grows grey hair, put into a position and expected to function. Everyone has a leadership potential carried within in a specific area of his or purpose. Leadership is universal and built on trust.”
Israelmore Ayivor

“Man is not going to wait passively for millions of years before evolution offers him a better brain.”
Corneliu E Giurgea

Ronald Wright
“Though we became experimental creatures of our own devising, it’s important to bear in mind that we had no inkling of this process, let alone its consequences, until only the last six or seven of our 100,000 generations. We have done it all sleepwalking. Nature let a few apes into the lab of evolution, switched on the lights, and left us there to mess about with an ever-growing supply of ingredients and processes.

The effect on us and the world has accumulated ever since. Let’s list a few steps between the earliest times and this: sharp stones, animal skins, useful bits of bone and wood, wild fire, tame fire, seeds for eating, seeds for planting, houses, villages, pottery, cities, metals, wheels, explosives.

What strikes one most forcefully is the acceleration, the runaway progression of change - or to put it another way, the collapsing of time. From the first chipped stone to the first smelted iron took nearly 3 million years; from the first iron to the hydrogen bomb took only 3,000.”
Ronald Wright, A Short History of Progress

Lytton Strachey
“Human beings are too important to be treated as mere symptoms of the past. They have a value which is independent of any temporal process──which is eternal, and must be felt for its own sake.”
Lytton Strachey, Eminent Victorians

“Perry was leaning into my mother as he listened to what she said. They talked so close. He only leaned closer, his hands on the table, his leg touching hers.
"It's so risky," my mother said. "Why are you doing this?"
"Because I'm human being. Because we're all human beings."
My mother closed her eyes and winced. Maybe her hearing aid was ringing and bothering her, but as I watched her turn down the volume, I wanted to tell her right then that she couldn't quiet all those outside voices forever.”
Margaret McMullan, Sources of Light

Umberto Eco
“L'essere umano è davvero una creatura straordinaria. Ha scoperto il fuoco, edificato città, scritto magnifiche poesie, dato interpretazioni del mondo, inventato mitologie etc... Ma allo stesso tempo non ha smesso di fare la guerra ai suoi simili, non ha smesso di ingannarsi, di distruggere l'ambiente circostante. La somma algebrica fra vigore intellettuale e coglioneria dà un risultato quasi nullo. Dunque, decidendo di parlare di imbecillità, rendiamo in un certo senso omaggio a questa creatura che è per metà geniale, per metà imbecille”
Umberto Eco, Non sperate di liberarvi dei libri

McCall Hoyle
“If Hitch were a person, he'd be Mother Theresa or Gandhi or someone who treated all living creatures with the respect they deserve. It's depressing how my dog is a better human being than I am.”
McCall Hoyle, The Thing with Feathers

Daniel Keyes
“Other people had something I lacked something denied me. In my mental blindness, I had believed it was somehow connected with the ability to read and write, and I was sure that if I could get those skills I would have intelligence too.
Even a feeble-minded man wants to be like other men.
A child may not know how to feed itself, or what to eat, yet it knows hunger.”
Daniel Keyes, Flowers for Algernon

Dada Bhagwan
“Every human being is indeed unhappy as long as he is not free from kashays.”
Dada Bhagwan

Dada Bhagwan
“No human being really has any misery. It is your own mistake if you complain of the misery.”
Dada Bhagwan

“Every human being is been given some assignment on the earth”
Sunday Adelaja

Lailah Gifty Akita
“Human being is human being.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

“Human beings can handle much terrible circumstances in life. And that there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
--Here Tomorrow”
Kaleb Kilton

“Some human beings in their craftiness thought they can pretend to be good when they are actually bad.”
Bamigboye Olurotimi
