Mankind quotes

Douglas Adams
For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much-the wheel, New York, wars and so on-while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man-for precisely the same reasons.

Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
The proof that man is the noblest of all creatures is that no other creature has ever denied it.

Astrid Alauda
Evolution: that last step was a doozy!

Mark Twain
Man will do many things to get himself loved he will do all things to get himself envied.

John Barth
Is man a savage at heart, skinned o'er with fragile Manners? Or is savagery but a faint taint in the natural man's gentility, which erupts now and again like pimples on an angel's ar**?

Anne Frank
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.

Samuel Johnson
As I know more of mankind I expect less of them, and am ready now to call a man a good man upon easier terms than I was formerly.

Oscar Wilde
I sometimes think that God in creating man somewhat overestimated His ability.
