Like bones to the human body, the axle to the wheel, the wing to the bird, and the air to the wing, so is liberty the essence of life. Whatever is done without it is imperfect.
Aggression is not a breed thing. It's a state of mind, and it comes from how the human is with the dog. There are four levels of energy, regardless of the breed: low, medium, high, very high. The idea is to get a dog in your same level or lower than you.
Our real human nature is revealed better when we are confronted with limited situations, and I think that life itself is an immense accumulation of losses: we lose our childhood, we lose our virginity, we lose our parents, we lose our hair, we lose our life... But at the same time, we are getting a lot of things, simultaneously - that's the deal.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
For me an object is something living. This cigarette or this box of matches contains a secret life much more intense than that of certain human beings.
At the end of the day, I'm a human being and I just think that's what it is. Challenging stereotypes by just being who I am.
This celebration here tells me that this work is not hopeless. I thank you for this teaching with all my heart and lift my glass to human solidarity, to the ultimate victory of knowledge, peace, good-will and understanding.
We worry about appearing awkward in a presentation. But up to a point, most people seem to feel more comfortable with less-than-perfect speaking abilities. It makes the speaker more human - and more vulnerable, meaning he is less likely to attack our decisions or beliefs.
John P. Kotter
The work of an advertising agency is warmly and immediately human. It deals with human needs, wants, dreams and hopes. Its 'product' cannot be turned out on an assembly line.

Robotics are beginning to cross that line from absolutely primitive motion to motion that resembles animal or human behavior.
J. J. Abrams
Permanent remorse about failing to do your human duty, in my opinion, can be worse than losing your life.
The brain is the most complicated organ in the universe. We have learned a lot about other human organs. We know how the heart pumps and how the kidney does what it does. To a certain degree, we have read the letters of the human genome. But the brain has 100 billion neurons. Each one of those has about 10,000 connections.
Stem cell research must be carried out in an ethical manner in a way that respects the sanctity of human life.
The human voice is the first and most natural musical instrument, also the most emotional.
Evolution explains our biological evolution, but human beings are very unique creatures. As the Dobzhansky said, all animals are unique; humans are the uniquest. And that uniqueness of being human, language, art, culture, our dependency on culture for survival, comes from the combination of traditional biological evolution.
Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous.
Leonardo da Vinci

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Sammy Davis, Jr.
In fact, Parkinson's has made me a better person. A better husband, father and overall human being.
Michael J. Fox
Human beings are so made that the ones who do the crushing feel nothing; it is the person crushed who feels what is happening. Unless one has placed oneself on the side of the oppressed, to feel with them, one cannot understand.
Human nature is above all things lazy.

John F. Kennedy
