Famous quotes containing the word humane:

    If I had a thousand sons, the first humane principle I would
    teach them should be, to forswear thin potations and to addict
    themselves to sack.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Notwithstanding the unaccountable apathy with which of late years the Indians have been sometimes abandoned to their enemies, it is not to be doubted that it is the good pleasure and the understanding of all humane persons in the Republic, of the men and the matrons sitting in the thriving independent families all over the land, that they shall be duly cared for; that they shall taste justice and love from all to whom we have delegated the office of dealing with them.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I confess that I have hitherto indulged very little in philanthropic enterprises.... While my townsmen and women are devoted in so many ways to the good of their fellows, I trust that one at least may be spared to other and less humane pursuits. You must have a genius for charity as well as for anything else. As for Doing-good, that is one of the professions which are full.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
