Laughter should be one of the most valued, cherished qualities of human beings – because only man can laugh, no animals are capable of it. Because it is human, it must be of the highest order. To repress it is to destroy a human quality.” ~ Rajneesh
  20. “I love the idea of birds having human qualities…I think all humans want to be birds so we can fly.” ~ Aoife O’Donovan

The great leaders can’t do everything; they are the ones who look to others to help them. Great leaders don’t see themselves as great; they see themselves as human.” ~ Simon Sinek , Leadership qualities quotes

  31. “We come here because we too feel a responsibility for the human community. To preserve and develop a human quality of life is the common responsibility of us all. It is not fitting that those concerned with the various aspects of the human be alienated from each other. Both you and ourselves represent forces too profound and aim at objectives too significant for either of us to succeed completely without the assistance of the other. The urgency of our work impels us to get on with our common task lest a new period of disaster erupt over the Earth.” ~ Thomas Berry

  38. “[Some of the people I’d met] were wonderful people as human beings, and some people were more difficult. I could not see a correlation between their particular genius in playing chess and music and mathematics, etc. … with human qualities.

But when I met some spiritual masters, [I thought that] there had to be a correlation, and it turned out to be true.” ~ Matthieu Ricard
  39. “Now that we are rid of this syndrome of imposing the communist model on people, now that we’ve given them the chance to get rid of this dogma, I have to tell you Americans that you’ve been pushing your American way of life for decades.

That apparent power has, again and again, proved vulnerable to human qualities less measurable than bombs and dollars: moral fervor, determination, unity, organization, sacrifice, wit, ingenuity, courage, patience.” ~ Howard Zinn
  54. “You have a dream and you have obstacles in front of you as we all do.

  55. “What is the importance of human lives? Is it their continuing alive for so many years like animals in a menagerie? The value of a man cannot be judged by the number of diseases from which he escapes.

Torturing animals to prolong human life has separated science from the most important thing that life has produced – the human conscience.” ~ John Cowper Powys

I must calm down. I am far too frail to indulge in moral fervor.” ~ Florida Scott-Maxwell
  59. “It’s what non-car people don’t get. They see all cars as just a ton and a half, two tons of wires, glass, metal, and rubber, and that’s all they see. People like you or I know we have an unshakable belief that cars are living entities… You can develop a relationship with a car and that’s what non-car people don’t get… When something has foibles and won’t handle properly, that gives it a particularly human quality because it makes mistakes, and that’s how you can build a relationship with a car that other people won’t get.” ~ Jeremy Clarkson
