Favorite Valuing Human Life Quotes

1. "The signal danger of life in a godless society is that it lacks reminders of the transcendent and therefore leaves us unprepared for disappointment and eventual annihilation. When God is dead, human beings – much to their detriment – are at risk of taking psychological centre stage. They imagine themselves to be commanders of their own destinies, they trample upon nature, forget the rhythms of the earth, deny death and shy away from valuing and honouring all that slips through their grasp, until at last they must collide catastrophically with the sharp edges of reality. Our secular world is lacking in the sorts of rituals that might put us gently in our place."
Author: Alain De Botton
2. "Our rest is formed by our waking life and our waking life is formed by our sorrows."
Author: Alice Hoffman
3. "Constantly exposing yourself to popular culture and the mass media will ultimately shape your reality tunnel in ways that are not necessarily conducive to achieving your Soul Purpose and Life Calling. Modern society has generally ‘lost the plot'. Slavishly following its false gods and idols makes no sense in a spiritually aware life."
Author: Anthon St. Maarten
4. "We have good news and bad news. The good news is that the dismal vision of human sexuality reflected in the standard narrative is mistaken. Men have not evolved to be deceitful cads, nor have millions of years shaped women into lying, two-timing gold-diggers. But the bad news is that the amoral agencies of evolution have created in us a species with a secret it just can't keep. Homo sapiens evolved to be shamelessly, undeniably, inescapably sexual. Lusty libertines."
Author: Christopher Ryan

Author: Christopher Morley
6. "Give life long enough and it will solve all your problems, including the one of being alive."
Author: Colum McCann
7. "There's only one Earth, and it's tiny, but evil human leaders avoid problems they don't want to resolve by giving them names which make the problems sound like they're taking place in a different world: they make people not care about other people dying of starvation by calling the place the dying live "the third world."
Author: Craig Stone
8. "The night has a thousand eyes,And the day but one; Yet the light of the bright world dies With the dying sun. The mind has a thousand eyes, And the heart but one: Yet the light of a whole life dies When love is done."
Author: Francis William Bourdillon
9. "But maybe the Charm Bracelets understood more about life than I did. From an early age they knew what little value the world placed in books, and so didn't waste their time with them. Whereas I, even now, persist in believing that these black marks on white paper bear the greatest significance, that if I keep writing, I might be able to catch the rainbow of consciousness in a jar."
Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
10. "Ambition is a very dangerous thing because either you achieve it and your life ends prematurely, or you don't, in which case your life is a constant source of disappointment. You must never have ambition."
Author: Jeremy Clarkson
11. "If it was really successful, it was a life calling, a career I was excited about doing, so I didn't think the overall risk was anywhere near as high as what the reward was."
Author: John Hickenlooper
12. "Faith,Waiting in the heart of a seed, Promises a miracle of life which cannot prove at once."
Author: Kabir
13. "Against barbarity, poetry can resist only by confirming its attachment to human fragility like a blade of grass growing on a wall while armies march by."
Author: Mahmoud Darwish
14. "Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less."
Author: Marie Curie
15. "Basically, I'm living the life of an actress in L.A. And I've recently had some pretty good fortune."
Author: Olivia Munn
16. "Let us live life freely, do what we want to do and don't let anyone come between us and our goals."
Author: Paballo Seipei
17. "It is a law of human nature that in victory even the coward may boast of his prowess, while defeat injures the reputation even of the brave."
Author: Sallust
18. "I felt my whole life was a facsimile of a life."
Author: Tama Janowitz
19. "I never asked Tolstoy to write for me, a little colored girl in Lorain, Ohio. I never asked [James] Joyce not to mention Catholicism or the world of Dublin. Never. And I don't know why I should be asked to explain your life to you. We have splendid writers to do that, but I am not one of them. It is that business of being universal, a word hopelessly stripped of meaning for me. Faulkner wrote what I suppose could be called regional literature and had it published all over the world. That's what I wish to do. If I tried to write a universal novel, it would be water. Behind this question is the suggestion that to write for black people is somehow to diminish the writing. From my perspective there are only black people. When I say 'people,' that's what I mean."
Author: Toni Morrison
20. "The forgotten man... He works, he votes, generally he prays, but his chief business in life is to pay."
Author: William Graham Sumner
