#1. People are aware that they cannot continue in the same old way but are immobilized because they cannot imagine an alternative. We need a vision that recognizes that we are at one of the great turning points in human history when the survival of our planet and the restoration of our humanity require a great sea change in our ecological, economic, political, and spiritual values. - Author: Grace Lee Boggs
Mbhele History quotes by Grace Lee Boggs
#2. History, gentlefriends, is not without a sense of irony. - Author: Jay Kristoff
Mbhele History quotes by Jay Kristoff
#3. There will surely always be people with straight hair and blue eyes, as there have been for all history. But some of these straight-haired people with blue eyes have been "black," and this points to the great difference between their world and ours. We did not choose our fences. They were imposed on us by Virginia planters obsessed with enslaving as many Americans as possible. They are the ones who came up with a one-drop rule that separated the "white" from the "black," even if it meant that their own blue-eyed sons would live under the lash. The result is a people, black people, who embody all physical varieties and whose life stories mirror this physical range. - Author: Ta-Nehisi Coates
Mbhele History quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#4. Who would have predicted a century ago that the richest civilizations in history would be made up of polluted tracts of suburban development dominated by the private automobile, shopping malls, and a throwaway economy? Surely, this is not the ultimate fulfillment of our destiny. - Author: Alan Thein Durning
Mbhele History quotes by Alan Thein Durning
#5. One of the tragic ironies of history is that such original and creative geniuses as Buddha and Jesus have been extolled as perfect patterns for all to emulate. In the very struggle to be like someone else rather than to be one's own true self, or to do one's own best in one's own environment, a child is in danger of losing the pearl that is really beyond price - the integrity of his (or her) own soul. - Author: Sophia Lyon Fahs
Mbhele History quotes by Sophia Lyon Fahs
#6. The trouble is, it's not just starlings that humans tend to regard as pests. It's all wildlife. Animals are fine as long as they stay in their own habitats. Yet we have a long history of expanding our territories with little thought for anything but our own needs. Quite routinely, we turn wildlife habitats into human habitats. And, of course, man has long had difficulty with the idea of sharing the ecosystem with any other living creature. When animals won't cooperate with our desires, they are regarded as pests, nuisances, to be disposed of summarily. The starling is one of many such animals, for he sometimes interferes with our convenience simply by being. - Author: Margarete Sigl Corbo & Diane Marie Barras
Mbhele History quotes by Margarete Sigl Corbo & Diane Marie Barras
#7. We are entering a period of human history that may provide an answer to the question of whether it is better to be smart than stupid. - Author: Noam Chomsky
Mbhele History quotes by Noam Chomsky
#8. Philip remembered the story of the Eastern King who, desiring to know the history of man, was brought by a sage five hundred volumes; busy with affairs of state, he bade him go and condense it; in twenty years the sage returned and his history now was in no more than fifty volumes, but the King, too old then to read so many ponderous tomes, bade him go and shorten it once more; twenty years passed again and the sage, old and gray, brought a single book in which was the knowledge the King had sought; but the King lay on his death-bed, and he had no time to read even that; and then the sage gave him the history of man in a single line; it was this: he was born, he suffered, and he died. - Author: W. Somerset Maugham
Mbhele History quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#9. The political history of the twentieth century is the story of greater and more direct political participation. And success kept expanding democracy's scope. Whatever the ailment, more democracy became the cure. - Author: Fareed Zakaria
Mbhele History quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#10. According to Thoth, because of the placement of the Great Pyramid on the Earth connecting into the Earth's huge geometrical field - specifically the octahedral field of the Earth, which is equivalent to our own fields - and because of the pyramid's mass and the geometries used in it, the white-light energy field spirals upward and becomes extremely strong, stretching all the way out to the center of the galaxy. The dark-light energy comes in from above, spirals through zero point and connects with the center of the Earth. In this way the Great Pyramid connects the center of the Earth to the center of our galaxy. - Author: Drunvalo Melchizedek
Mbhele History quotes by Drunvalo Melchizedek
#11. The American Museum of Natural History is my son's absolute favorite place in the world! So we really, really, really love New York. - Author: Mark Teixeira
Mbhele History quotes by Mark Teixeira
#12. I have written a number of short biographical studies of insignificant personages from literary history. My interest has always been in writing biographies of the also-rans: people who lived in the shadow of fame in their own lifetime and who, since their death, have sunk into profound obscurity. - Author: Diane Setterfield
Mbhele History quotes by Diane Setterfield
#13. Own your history and be who you are. To hide bits and pieces of yourself out of shame or fear is to be half-alive. To offer only half of yourself to others is to cheat them and yourself. - Author: Margo Christie
Mbhele History quotes by Margo Christie
#14. What has mattered are the moments of exposure to every life, when habit is no longer enough, and choices have to be made. That's when everyone becomes a great man, for a moment; and the choices made in those moments, which come all too frequently, then combine to make history. - Author: Kim Stanley Robinson
Mbhele History quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#15. The first step to get people interested in history is to wonder how things could have been different. - Author: Gavriel David Rosenfeld
Mbhele History quotes by Gavriel David Rosenfeld
#16. What do we do if we come across trouble, sir?' Cahill asked, slapping at a fly. 'As much as I enjoy giving the rebel turds a walloping, it should be down to the Militia to keep the buggers in check.'
'They are doing their job,' Mullone said, glancing at a free-standing Celtic Cross that had once been a prominent feature beside the road, but was now strangled with weeds, besieged with dark moss and deeply pitted with age.
'If you call plundering, fighting and torture work, sir.'
'You don't have much faith in the peace talks then, Seán?'
'No, sir. There's more chance of me taking holy orders and becoming the Pope than there is of peace,' Cahill replied. 'The negotiations that spout from the politicians mouths are nothing but wet farts.'

-from Liberty or Death - Author: David Cook
Mbhele History quotes by David        Cook
#17. He would come to feel that history, even more than memory, distorts the present of the past by focusing on big events and making one forget that most people living in the present are otherwise preoccupied, that for them omens often don't exist. - Author: Tracy Kidder
Mbhele History quotes by Tracy Kidder
#18. The comfortable thing about the study of history is that it inclines us to think hopefully of our own times. - Author: Agnes Repplier
Mbhele History quotes by Agnes Repplier
#19. If you took the love of all the best mothers and fathers who have lived in the course of human history, all their goodness, kindness, patience, fidelity, wisdom, tenderness, strength, and love and united all those qualities in a single person, that person's love would only be a faint shadow of the furious love and mercy in the heart of God the Father addressed to you and me at this moment. - Author: Brennan Manning
Mbhele History quotes by Brennan Manning
#20. Throughout human history beauty has been seen as a gift from God, but Mom had another notion; she thought that beauty could be earned through self-knowledge. It may be a revolutionary idea, but it has offered me great comfort. - Author: Ruth Reichl
Mbhele History quotes by Ruth Reichl
#21. Stories about food are stories about us-our history and our values. - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
Mbhele History quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#22. When a character has as wide an audience and as rich a history as Batman, it's truly exciting to see him introduced into an all-new storytelling medium. BATMAN LIVE will bring a completely new experience to fans of the character - it's great to be able to give them something they haven't seen before. - Author: Jim Lee
Mbhele History quotes by Jim Lee
#23. 'As Long As I Know I'm Getting Paid' is a satire. Lyrically, I want to be direct. With my history in Fall Out Boy, there's some expectation that I'm going to be lyrically obtuse. But that song is a straight-faced satire of consumerism. - Author: Patrick Stump
Mbhele History quotes by Patrick Stump
#24. When one contemplates the streak of insanity running through human history, it appears highly probable that homo sapiens is a biological freak, the result of some remarkable mistake in the evolutionary process. The ancient doctrine of original sin, variants of which occur independently in the mythologies of diverse cultures, could be a reflection of man's awareness of his own inadequacy, of the intuitive hunch that somewhere along the line of his ascent something has gone wrong. - Author: Arthur Koestler
Mbhele History quotes by Arthur Koestler
#25. I think the artist's job throughout history has been to tell - to say things that people are inspired by. - Author: Russell Simmons
Mbhele History quotes by Russell Simmons
#26. José Martí, born on January 28, 1853, is known as the George Washington of Cuba, or is perhaps better identified with Simon Bolivar, the liberator of South America. Although he admired and visited the United States, José Martí realized that not only would he have to free his country from Spain, he would also have to prevent the United States from interfering in Cuba's internal affairs. By his admirers, he was considered a great Latin American intellectual, and his newspaper Patria became the voice of "Cuban Independence." After years of suppression, the Cuban struggle for independence began in 1868. At the age of 17, José Martí was jailed in Cuba and then exiled to Spain because of his revolutionary activities. It was during this time in his life that he published a pamphlet describing the atrocities he had experienced while being imprisoned in Cuba. He strongly believed in racial equality and denounced the horrors of people having to live under a dictatorship.
In 1878, Martí was allowed to return to Cuba under a general amnesty, but was once again banished from Cuba after being accused of conspiracy against the Spanish authorities. From 1881 to 1895, he lived and worked in New York City. Moving to Florida, he organized forces for a three-pronged attack supporting the smoldering Cuban War of Independence. It was during one of the first battles that he was killed at the Battle of Dos Ríos in Cuba, and thus became a national hero and martyr when he was only 42 years old. - Author: Hank Bracker
Mbhele History quotes by Hank Bracker
#27. From 1801, Napoleon began an ambitious programme of civil reform to standardise law and justice, centralise education, introduce uniform weights and measures and a fully functioning internal market. That achievement alone makes him one of the giants of history. - Author: Saul David
Mbhele History quotes by Saul David
#28. In giving rise to man, the evolutionary process has, apparently for the first and only time in the history of the Cosmos, become conscious of itself.
So, the Devil's Chaplain might conclude, Stand tall, Bipedal Ape. The shark may outswim you, the cheetah outrun you, the swift outfly you, the capuchin outclimb you, the elephant outpower you, the redwood outlast you. But you have the biggest gifts of all: the gift of understanding the ruthlessly cruel process that gave us all existence; the gift of revulsion against its implications; the gift of foresight - something utterly foreign to the blundering short-term ways of natural selection - and the gift of internalizing the very cosmos. - Author: Richard Dawkins
Mbhele History quotes by Richard Dawkins
#29. More history is made by secret handshakes than by battles, bills and proclamations. - Author: John Barth
Mbhele History quotes by John Barth
#30. Born of antimodern sentiment, the summer camp was ultimately a modern phenomenon, a "therapeutic space" as much dependent on the city, the factory, and "progress" to define its parameters as on that intangible but much lauded entity called nature. In short, the summer camp should best be read not as a simple rejection of modern life, but, rather, as one of the complex negotiations of modernity taking place in mid-twentieth century Canada. - Author: Sharon Wall
Mbhele History quotes by Sharon Wall
#31. When Freemasons vainglory on their deeds during the French Revolution, they forget that many innocents paid with their own life for that, including pregnant women and children from the royal families, and those that have witness it didn't forget, and will likewise turn the karma back on them in the years to come, making their innocents pay for the guilty ones. - Author: Robin Sacredfire
Mbhele History quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#32. Then we will do two things," Penumbra says, nodding. "First, I will tell you just a little of our history. Then, to understand, you must see the Reading Room. There, my proposal will become clear, and I dearly hope you will accept it."
Of course we'll accept it. That's what you do on a quest. You listen to the old wizard's problem and then you promise to help him. - Author: Robin Sloan
Mbhele History quotes by Robin Sloan
#33. We are all hostages, and we are all terrorists. This circuit has replaced that other one of masters and slaves, the dominating and the dominated, the exploiters and the exploited. It is worse than the one it replaces, but at least it liberates us from liberal nostalgia and the ruses of history. - Author: Jean Baudrillard
Mbhele History quotes by Jean Baudrillard
