Human rights is a universal standard. It is a component of every religion and every civilization.
You think that a wall as solid as the earth separates civilization from barbarism. I tell you the division is a thread, a sheet of glass. A touch here, a push there, and you bring back the reign of Saturn.
It is what you do from now on that will either move our civilization forward a few tiny steps, or else... begin to march us steadily backward.
What should we suppose must naturally be the consequence of our carrying on a slave trade with Africa? With a country, vast in its extent, not utterly barbarous, but civilized in a very small degree? Does any one suppose a slave trade would help their civilization?
Art is like a border of flowers along the course of civilization.
The world runs on individuals pursuing their self interests. The great achievements of civilization have not come from government bureaus. Einstein didn't construct his theory under order from a, from a bureaucrat. Henry Ford didn't revolutionize the automobile industry that way.
When humor goes, there goes civilization.
In the twenty-first century, the robot will take the place which slave labor occupied in ancient civilization.
Government has never increased the standard of living of one single human being in civilization's history. For some reason that simple truth has evaded everybody.
I think governments are the cancer of civilization.
Civilization has given us enormous successes: going to the moon, technology. But then this is the civilisation that took us to debt, environmental crisis, every single crisis. We need a civilization where we say goodbye to these things.

India is a land of plenty inhibited by poverty; India has an enthralling, uplifting civilization that sparkles not only in our magnificent art, but also in the enormous creativity and humanity of our daily life in city and village.
We've been playing games since humanity had civilization - there is something primal about our desire and our ability to play games. It's so deep-seated that it can bypass latter-day cultural norms and biases.
The true civilization is where every man gives to every other every right that he claims for himself.
