Famous quotes containing the word human:

    I set forth notions that are human and my own, simply as human notions considered in themselves, not as determined and decreed by heavenly ordinance.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    You can make the best of it and be content, or you can complain, it makes no difference. What does it matter that human beings judge the things that exist?
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    Do not human beings have a hard service on earth, and are not their days like the days of a laborer? Like a slave who longs for the shadow, and like laborers who look for their wages, so I am allotted months of emptiness, and nights of misery are apportioned to me.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 7:1-3.
