Be nice to the whites, they need you to rediscover their humanity.
It is only our humanity that can deliver us from the brutality of our achievements.
All humanity is passion; without passion, religion, history, novels, art would be ineffectual.
Honore de Balzac
Lies are essential to humanity. They are perhaps as important as the pursuit of pleasure and moreover are dictated by that pursuit.
Advertising is a racket, like the movies and the brokerage business. You cannot be honest without admitting that its constructive contribution to humanity is exactly minus zero.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Part of our essential humanity is paying respect to what God gave us and what will be here a long time after we're gone.
William J. Clinton
It may be, it just may be, that life as we know it with its humanity is more unique than many have thought.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Our nation was created in ways that allow human potential to prosper, and it created the greatest nation for people in the history of humanity. Now Obama is dismantling it, because he has no appreciation for our greatness. In fact, he resents it. He blames this country for whatever evils he sees around the world.
Poets are the sense, philosophers the intelligence of humanity.

E. O. Wilson
Someday I want to be rich. Some people get so rich they lose all respect for humanity. That's how rich I want to be.
No one makes a revolution by himself; and there are some revolutions which humanity accomplishes without quite knowing how, because it is everybody who takes them in hand.
A vast percentage of the human race is literally not wired neurologically to get irony. Well more than half of humanity takes life at face value, which is to me terrifying.
As in the rankest soil the most beautiful flowers are grown, so in the dark soil of poverty the choicest flowers of humanity have developed and bloomed.
And just as the terrorist seeks to divide humanity in hate, so we have to unify it around an idea. And that idea is liberty.
The more humanity advances, the more it is degraded.
Just think for how long humanity was controlled by mystical, magical thinking - the diseases and suffering that led to. We managed to survive, but just barely. It wasn't pretty.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
No part of the human community can live entirely on its own planet, with its own laws of motion and cut off from the rest of humanity.
Only a humanity to whom death has become as indifferent as its members, that has itself died, can inflict it administratively on innumerable people.
My horizon on humanity is enlarged by reading the writers of poems, seeing a painting, listening to some music, some opera, which has nothing at all to do with a volatile human condition or struggle or whatever. It enriches me as a human being.
We ought to think that we are one of the leaves of a tree, and the tree is all humanity. We cannot live without the others, without the tree.
Art should be life. It's an imitation of life. It should have some humanity in it.
