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.
It's obvious that the key problem facing humanity in the coming century is how to bring a better quality of life - for 8 billion or more people - without wrecking the environment entirely in the attempt.
E. O. Wilson
The biological evolutionary perception of life and of human qualities is radically different from that of traditional religion, whether it's Southern Baptist or Islam or any religion that believes in a supernatural supervalance over humanity.
E. O. Wilson
The world is a bad place. There are many wonderful people, but on the whole, humanity basically stinks.
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.
The cultured man is an artist, an artist in humanity.
The more humanity advances, the more it is degraded.
Only a humanity to whom death has become as indifferent as its members, that has itself died, can inflict it administratively on innumerable people.
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.
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.
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.
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

Aliens didn't come down to Earth and give us technology. We invented it ourselves. Therefore it can never be alienating; it can only be an expression of our humanity.
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.
We are not actually equal - humanity - if we are not allowed to freely love one another.
Art should be life. It's an imitation of life. It should have some humanity in it.
I don't want a perfect character, I want a character who has, as strange as it sounds, some humanity, some flaws, some needs.
I think that the day a justice forgets that each decision comes at a cost to someone, then I think you start losing your humanity.
Justice is conscience, not a personal conscience but the conscience of the whole of humanity. Those who clearly recognize the voice of their own conscience usually recognize also the voice of justice.
The whole aspect of cinema and film festivals should be a moment to come together and celebrate art and humanity. It would be a shame if there was such a divide.
The cause of freedom is not the cause of a race or a sect, a party or a class-it is the cause of human kind, the very birthright of humanity.
Anna Julia Cooper
Monumental achievements by humanity should be done by major organizations as much together as possible.
There is an eternal humanity that crosses through all people, and it's more interesting often when it's about struggle - not people with champagne glasses.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
William Arthur Ward
