Famous quotes containing the word humanity:

    In a sense the world dies every time a writer dies, because, if he is any good, he has been a wet nurse to humanity during his entire existence and has held earth close around him, like the little obstetrical toad that goes about with a cluster of eggs attached to his legs.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)

    People forget that it is the eye that makes the horizon, and the rounding mind’s eye which makes this or that man a type or representative of humanity with the name of hero or saint.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The humanity of famous intellectuals lies in being wrong with gracious courtesy when dealing with those who are not famous.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
