Beware how you take away hope from another human being.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Nothing on this earth is standing still. It's either growing or it's dying. No matter if it's a tree or a human being.

The Bible was written by fallible human beings.
It's human nature to blame someone else for your shortcomings or upsets.
Racism oppresses its victims, but also binds the oppressors, who sear their consciences with more and more lies until they become prisoners of those lies. They cannot face the truth of human equality because it reveals the horror of the injustices they commit.
I hope that people will finally come to realize that there is only one 'race' - the human race - and that we are all members of it.
What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.

If we were logical, the future would be bleak, indeed. But we are more than logical. We are human beings, and we have faith, and we have hope, and we can work.
Jacques Yves Cousteau
Sex is God's joke on human beings.
It's very important that people know that I really enjoy everything that has happened to me. And I tell my kids... you're not going to be the tallest, fastest, prettiest, the best track runner, but you can be the nicest human being that someone has ever met in their life. And I just want to leave that legacy that being nice is a true treasure.
The human race's prospects of survival were considerably better when we were defenceless against tigers than they are today when we have become defenceless against ourselves.
Arnold J. Toynbee

There's a rebirth that goes on with us continuously as human beings. I don't understand, personally, how you can be bored. I can understand how you can be depressed, but I just don't understand boredom.
Every human longs for peace and love.
John F. Kennedy
