“For everything in this journey of life we are on, there is a right wing and a left wing: for the wing of love there is anger; for the wing of destiny there is fear; for the wing of pain there is healing; for the wing of hurt there is forgiveness; for the wing of pride there is humility; for the wing of giving there is taking; for the wing of tears there is joy; for the wing of rejection there is acceptance; for the wing of judgment there is grace; for the wing of honor there is shame; for the wing of letting go there is the wing of keeping. We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race.”
C. JoyBell C.

Jim Butcher
“But I don't understand God. I don't understand how he could see the way people treat one another, and not chalk up the whole human race as a bad idea.”
Jim Butcher, Grave Peril

Krista Ritchie
“Whether it's men, women—it doesn't really matter. The human race is filled with passion and lust. And to coin terms like heterosexuality, homosexuality or even bisexuality makes no sense to me. You are human. You love who you love. You fuck who you fuck. That should be enough—no labels. No stigmas. Nothing. Just be to be.
But life isn't that kind. People will always find things to hate.”
Krista Ritchie, Kiss the Sky

Tiffany Madison
“The Internet is the Petri dish of humanity. We can't control what grows in it, but we don't have to watch either.”
Tiffany Madison

“The human body resonates at the same frequency as Mother Earth. So instead of only focusing on trying to save the earth, which operates in congruence to our vibrations, I think it is more important to be one with each other. If you really want to remedy the earth, we have to mend mankind. And to unite mankind, we heal the Earth. That is the only way. Mother Earth will exist with or without us. Yet if she is sick, it is because mankind is sick and separated. And if our vibrations are bad, she reacts to it, as do all living creatures.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Mark Twain
“Well, there are times when one would like to hang the whole human race and finish the farce.”
Mark Twain

H.L. Mencken
“Indeed it may be said with some confidence that the average man never really thinks from end to end of his life. There are moments when his cogitations are relatively more respectable than usual, but even at their climaxes they never reach anything properly describable as the level of serious thought. The mental activity of such people is only a mouthing of clichés. What they mistake for thought is simply a repetition of what they have heard. My guess is that well over eighty per cent. of the human race goes through life without having a single original thought. That is to say, they never think anything that has not been thought before and by thousands.”
H.L. Mencken, Minority Report

Christopher Hitchens
“What struck me, in reading the reports from Sri Lanka, was the mild disgrace of belonging to our imperfectly evolved species in the first place. People who had just seen their neighbors swept away would tell the reporters that they knew a judgment had been coming, because the Christians had used alcohol and meat at Christmas or because ... well, yet again you can fill in the blanks for yourself. It was interesting, though, to notice that the Buddhists were often the worst. Contentedly patting an image of the chubby lord on her fencepost, a woman told the New York Times that those who were not similarly protected had been erased, while her house was still standing. There were enough such comments, almost identically phrased, to make it seem certain that the Buddhist authorities had been promulgating this consoling and insane and nasty view. That would not surprise me.”
Christopher Hitchens

Toba Beta
“There's no doomsday scheme made specifically for mankind,
only higher agenda and priority than human race preservation.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Abhijit Naskar
“In the biological sense, race does not exist.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

“I am not red or blue. I am red, white and blue. Those are the same colors in my body (my heart, blood and veins). I am only human, and the human race is the only race in which I am an active participant - mind, body and soul.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Abhijit Naskar
“A religious individual may most gloriously carry out his or her own rituals, as a part of his or her cultural identity, but the moment, that person starts to build a wall of separation between the self and the rest of humanity, coaxed by the textual commands of a scripture, the healthy religiousness turns into dangerous fundamentalism, which is a threat to both the self and the society.”
Abhijit Naskar

“Even if there is no connection.
Even if you are far from reach.
Even if friendship is not enough.
Even if love itself is not enough.
What about apathy?
I need you.”
Nurudeen Ushawu

James Dashner
“And we want to make sure that something is done to salvage what's left of this beautiful race called humans”
James Dashner, The Death Cure

“...the history of man is but a history of difficulties overcome – of mysteries made plain...and that Progress, incessant and continued, is the great law of the human race'
Dr Henry George Charles Clarke, 1847.
Quoted in Champion of the Quarterdeck (2017)”
Dr Henry George Charles Clarke

Inio Asano
“When I was little, people often misread the Kanji in my name as Mon-De... So the boys flipped it around and called me De-Mon, as in The Devil. Demons plague humanity, but I wasn't doing anything wrong. Ever since, I've been uncomfortable with how people cheerfully unite against perceived enemies".”
Inio Asano, デッドデッドデーモンズデデデデデストラクション 4

Lailah Gifty Akita
“The moment we accept each other as Human beings, we shall find harmony.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Adam Rutherford
“No matter the languages we speak or the colour of our skin, we share ancestors who planted rice on the banks of the Yangtze, who first domesticated horses on the steppes of the Ukraine, who hunted giant sloths in the forests of North and South America, and who laboured to build the Great Pyramid of Khufu.”
Adam Rutherford, A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived: The Stories in Our Genes

Abhijit Naskar
“Give me your soul and I will give you a unified humanity replete with courage, conscience and compassion.”
Abhijit Naskar, I Am The Thread: My Mission

Steven Pinker
“What could be more fundamental to our sense of meaning and purpose than a conception of whether the strivings of the human race over long stretches of time have left us better or worse off? How, in particular, are we to make sense of modernity—of the erosion of family, tribe, tradition, and religion by the forces of individualism, cosmopolitanism, reason, and science?”
Steven Pinker, The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined

Paul McAuley
“Keeping the human race in check must require a lot of multitasking.”
Paul McAuley, Into Everywhere

Rasheed Ogunlaru
“Technology and innovation may aid, speed, support and even prolong the human race - but only love and compassion can save it.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

Kurt Vonnegut
“In [The Mysterious Stranger, Mark Twain] proves to his own grim satisfaction, and to mine as well, that Satan and not God created the planet earth and “the damned human race.” If you doubt that, read your morning paper. Never mind what paper. Never mind what date.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr., A Man Without a Country

Lailah Gifty Akita
“There is only one Human race but many nations with diverse tribes.”
Lailah Gifty Akita

Virginia Woolf
“Oare de ce trăim? De ce ne dăm atîta silință ca rasa umană să meargă înainte? E un lucru atît de dezirabil? Sîntem atît de atrăgători ca specie?”
Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

Markus Zusak
“I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race—that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“We are so intelligent that we know how much intelligent are we.”
Abhishek Gehlot

Abhijit Naskar
“Call up the ever-pure, the effulgent and the ever-radiant character of true humanism in yourself and in others, and no racism shall have the power to thrive in such society even for a few seconds.”
Abhijit Naskar, We Are All Black: A Treatise on Racism

“I'm a global citizen, born in the western region of Africa, and a family of the entire human race.”
Nurudeen Ushawu

John Steinbeck
“We have made our mark on the world, but we have really done nothing that the trees and creeping plants, ice and erosion, cannot remove in a fairly short time.”
John Steinbeck, The Log from the Sea of Cortez
