We didn't have any civil rights. It was just a matter of survival, of existing from one day to the next. I remember going to sleep as a girl hearing the Klan ride at night and hearing a lynching and being afraid the house would burn down.
Victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no Survival.winston churchill
One circumstance that helped our character development: we were needed. I often think today of what an impact could be made if children believed they were contributing to a family's essential Survival and happiness. In the transformation from a rural to an urban society, children are — though they might not agree — robbed of the opportunity to do genuinely responsible work.
The meaning of life for human beings is to serve one another for the Survival of humanity and the advancement of civilization.newton lee

Great powers must be forever vigilant and never subordinate Survival to any other goal, including prosperity.john j. mearsheimer
Although September 11 was horrible, it didn't threaten the Survival of the human race, like nuclear weapons do.stephen hawking
It goes without saying that when Survival is threatened, struggles erupt between peoples, and unfortunate wars between nations result.Hideki Tojo
One can even conjecture that Lisp owes its Survival specifically to the fact that its programs are lists, which everyone, including me, has regarded as a disadvantage.
Nothing matters at all. Survival is the coin of the realm. Time is a river with banks.barry malzberg
My draft-dodging father proved that in the struggle for Survival the fittest are most likely to get killed off.
Our neighborhood - this solar system, the cosmos, actually - is so much more vast and amazing than the paltry headlines, insanity, and politics crammed at us daily as so-called news. The beauty of the hood and discoveries that await us are deserving of our attention and mandatory to our Survival as a species.vanna bonta
A guru is one who tells you to throw away all the crutches that we have been made to believe are essential for our Survival. He would ask you to walk, and he would say that if you fall, you will arise and walk.u. g. krishnamurti
Never before have self-suffiency and education been so important, and they are virtually inseparable from Survival.william powell

Adaptation to one's environment makes for a sort of Survival; but after all, the supreme victory is only won by those who prove themselves of so much hardier stuff than the rest that no power on earth is able to destroy them. The people who have really made history are the martyrs.aleister crowley
Symmetrical equations are good in their place, but ' vector ' is a useless Survival, or offshoot from quaternions, and has never been of the slightest use to any creature.william thomson

All of our problems are the result of overbreeding among the working class, and if morality is to mean anything at all to us, we must regard all the changes which tend toward the uplift and Survival of the human race as moral.margaret sanger
It cannot but happen that those individuals whose functions are most out of equilibrium with the modified aggregate of external forces, will be those to die; and that those will survive whose functions happen to be most nearly in equilibrium with the modified aggregate of external forces. But this Survival of the fittest, implies multiplication of the fittest. Out of the fittest thus multiplied, there will, as before, be an overthrowing of the moving equilibrium wherever it presents the least opposing force to the new incident force.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the Survival and the success of liberty.
This Survival of the fittest, which I have here sought to express in mechanical terms, is that which Mr. Darwin has called "natural selection, or the preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life."Herbert Spencer
