A Quote by Leo F. Buscaglia on forgive, forgiveness, human, humanity, wronged, and wrongdoer

We will only begin to forgive when we can look upon the wrongdoers as ourselves, neither better nor worse. We need to remember that we coexist as mortals in the world, together, the wronged and the wrongdoer, and that, in our common humanity, the situation could readily be reversed.

A Quote by Rachel Louise Carson on animal rights, peace, cruelty, war, humanity, and progress

Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is -- whether its victim is human or animal -- we cannot expect things to be much better in this world. We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing, we set back the progress of humanity.

Rachel Carson (1907 - 1964)

A Quote by George Orwell on george orwell, relationships, emotion, ego, psychology, life, death, and humanity

The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection, and that one is prepared in the end, to be defeated, and broken up by life, which is the inevitable price of fastening one’s love upon other human individuals.

George Orwell (1903 - 1950)

A Quote by Jurgen Moltmann on humanity, divinity, and being human

It is only when human beings see themselves simply as human beings, no longer as gods, that they are in a position to perceive the wholly other nature of God.  It is only when we cease to be unhappy supermen and pathetic mini-gods and permit ourselves to become human beings through and through again that we let God be God.

A Quote by Dean Koontz on courage, love, friendship, compassion, empathy, humanity, meaning, and drea

Is there some meaning to this life?
What purpose lies behind the strife?
Whence do we come, where are we bound?
These cold questions echo and resound
through each day, each lonely night.
We long to find the splendid light
that will cast a revelatory beam
upon the meaning of the human dream.


Courage, love, friendship,
compassion, and empathy
lift us above the simple beasts
and define humanity.
