Nothing defines humans better than their willingness to do irrational things in the pursuit of phenomenally unlikely payoffs.
      - Scott Adams

Our humanity were a poor thing were it not for the divinity which stirs within us.
      - Francis Bacon

People who treat other people as less than human must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them, poisoned.
      - James Baldwin

True men and women are all physicians to make us well.
      - Cyrus Augustus Bartol

Human life is God's outer church. Its needs and urgencies are priests and pastors.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

There is a book into which some of us are happily led to look, and to look again, and never tire of looking. It is the Book of Man. You may open that book whenever and wherever you find another human voice to answer yours, and another human hand to take in your own.
      - Sir Walter Besant

Love, hope, fear, faith--these make humanity;
  These are its sign and note and character.
      - Robert Browning, Paracelsus (sc. 3)

I own that there is a haughtiness and fierceness in human nature which will cause innumerable broils, place men in what situation you please.
      - Edmund Burke

One way or another, we all have to find what best fosters the flowering of our humanity in this contemporary life, and dedicate ourselves to that.
      - Joseph Campbell (1)

The great duty of God's children is to love one another. This duty on earth takes the name and form of the law of humanity. We are to recognize all men as brethren, no matter where born, or under what sky, or institution or religion they may live. Every man belongs to the race, and owes a duty to mankind. Every nation belongs to the family of nations, and is to desire the good of all. Nations are to love one another. * * * Men cannot vote this out of the universal acclamation. * * * Men cannot, by combining themselves into narrower or larger societies, sever the sacred, blessed bond which joins them to their kind. * * * The law of humanity must reign over the assertion of all human rights.
      - William Ellery Channing

Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it foregoes revenge and dares to forgive an injury.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

No piled-up wealth, no social station, no throne, reaches as high as that spiritual plane upon which every human being stands by virtue of his humanity.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Humanity is much more shown in our conduct towards animals, where we are irresponsible except to heaven, than towards our fellow-creatures, where we are restrained by the laws, by public opinion, and fear of retaliation.
      - Paul Chatfield (a/k/a Horace Smith)

Humanity is the peculiar characteristic of great minds; little vicious minds abound with anger and revenge, and are incapable of feeling the exact pleasure of forgiving their enemies.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

Humanity is the equity of the heart.
      - Confucius

An inadvertent step may crush the snail
  That crawls at evening in the public path.
    But he that has humanity, forewarned,
      Will turn aside and let the reptile live.
      - William Cowper, Task (bk. VI)

A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.
      - Charles Dickens

Remember your humanity and forget the rest.
      - Albert Einstein

We cannot despair of humanity, since we are ourselves human beings.
      - Albert Einstein

Man is the will, and woman the sentiment. In this ship of humanity, Will is the rudder, and Sentiment the sail; when woman affects to steer, the rudder is only a masked sail.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I never knew a young man remarkable for heroic bravery whose very aspect was not lighted up by gentleness and humanity.
      - Ralph Erskine

I love my country better than my family; but I love human nature better than my country.
      - Francois de Salignac Fenelon

W'en you see a man in woe,
  Walk right up and say "hullo."
    Say "hullo" and "how d'ye do,"
      "How's the world a-usin' you?"
        . . . .
          W'en you travel through the strange
            Country t'other side the range,
              Then the souls you've cheered will know
                Who you be, an' say "hullo."
      - Sam Walter Foss, Hullo

True humanity consists not in a squeamish ear; it consists not in starting or shrinking at tales of misery, but in a disposition of heart to relieve it. True humanity appertains rather to the mind than to the nerves, and prompts men to use real and active endeavors to execute the actions which it suggests.
      - Charles James Fox

The ingratitude of the world can never deprive us of the conscious happiness of having acted with humanity ourselves.
      - Oliver Goldsmith
