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.
Music played a large role in the Survival of the black people in America — that and a sense of humor that just couldn't be enslaved.redd foxx
The meaning of life for human beings is to serve one another for the Survival of humanity and the advancement of civilization.newton lee
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.john mccarthy
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
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.
The modern State is by its very nature a military State; and every military State must of necessity become a conquering, invasive State; to survive it must conquer or be conquered, for the simple reason that accumulated military power will suffocate if it does not find an outlet. Therefore the modern State must strive to be a huge and powerful State: this is the indispensable precondition for its Survival.mikhail bakunin
Once a paper admits any principle of censorship for Survival, the we-don't-want-to-do-it-but-we-don't-want-to-lose-the-printer kind of censorship, it jeopardizes the integrity of its editorial principle. It's better to print and be damned, because you'll be damned anyway.Germaine Greer
Morals: They’re nothing but a coded Survival instinct!theodore sturgeon
The human race's prospects of Survival were considerably better when we were defenceless against tigers than they are today when we have become defenceless against ourselves.Arnold Joseph Toynbee
...the perception of potential threats to Survival may be much more important in determining behavior than the perceptions of potential profits, so that profit maximization is not really the driving force. It is fear of loss rather than hope of gain that limits our behaviorkenneth boulding
Although our grammar schools are teaching a whole generation computer language to adjust to the technological needs of a Stage II [post Survival-focused] society, we have neglected to teach this generation relationship language and conflict resolution skills to address the social and psychological needs of a Stage II society. And when it is taught, in countries like Germany, although called social competence it focuses on workplace teamwork -- still on Survival, breadwinner oriented work goals.warren farrell
Nature pitiless in a pitiless universe is certainly not concerned with the Survival of Americans or, for that matter, of any of the two billion people now inhabiting this earth. Hence, our destiny, with the aid of God, remains in our own hands.j. william fulbright
A belief in hell and the knowledge that every ambition is doomed to frustration at the hands of a skeleton have never prevented the majority of human beings from behaving as though death were no more than an unfounded rumour, and Survival a thing beyond the bounds of possibility.aldous huxley
If everybody would agree that their current reality is a reality, and that what we essentially share is our capacity for constructing a reality, then perhaps we could all agree on a meta-agreement for computing a reality that would mean Survival and dignity for everyone on the planet, rather than each group being sold on a particular way of doing things.francisco varela
Access to a secure, safe and sufficient source of fresh water is a fundamental requirement for the Survival, well-being and socio-economic development of all humanity. Yet, we continue to act as if fresh water were a perpetually abundant resource. It is not.kofi annan
There was a time, not so long ago, when the might of our alliances was a driving force in the Survival and the success of freedom... America must always be the world's paramount military power, but we can magnify our power through alliances... let there be no doubt, this country is united in its determination to defeat terrorism...
