Famous quotes containing the word humanity:

    ... there is no way of measuring the damage to a society when a whole texture of humanity is kept from realizing its own power, when the woman architect who might have reinvented our cities sits barely literate in a semilegal sweatshop on the Texas- Mexican border, when women who should be founding colleges must work their entire lives as domestics ...
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    There is, in all great poets, a wisdom of humanity which is superior to any talents they exercise.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Each man too is a tyrant in tendency, because he would impose his idea on others; and their trick is their natural defence. Jesus would absorb the race; but Tom Paine or the coarsest blasphemer helps humanity by resisting this exuberance of power.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
