Famous quotes containing the word humanity:

    I have been to see Henry James, and like him very much. It was a great pleasure to meet him. It makes humanity seem more erect and respectable. I never was more kindly and faithfully catechised. It made me respect myself more to be thought worthy of such wise questions.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Hearing, seeing and understanding each other, humanity from one end of the earth to the other now lives simultaneously, omnipresent like a god thanks to its own creative ability. And, thanks to its victory over space and time, it would now be splendidly united for all time, if it were not confused again and again by that fatal delusion which causes humankind to keep on destroying this grandiose unity and to destroy itself with the same resources which gave it power over the elements.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
