Survival Quotes A-Z by Author
It is not the strongest of the species that
survive, nor the most intelligent, but the
one most responsive to change.
Darwin - Knowledge
With savages, the weak in body or mind are
soon eliminated; and those that survive
commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health.
We civilized men, on the other hand, do
our utmost to check the process of elimination;
we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed,
and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and
our medical men exert their utmost skill
to save the life of every one to the last
moment. There is reason to believe that
vaccination has preserved thousands, who
from a weak constitution would formerly
have succumbed to smallpox. Thus the weak
members of civilized societies propagate
their kind. No one who has attended to the
breeding of domestic animals will doubt
that this must be highly injurious to the
race of man. It is surprising how soon a
want of care, or care wrongly directed,
leads to the degeneration of a domestic
race; but excepting in the case of man himself,
hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow
his worst animals to breed.
Darwin - Competition
In the struggle for survival, the fittest
win out at the expense of their rivals because
they succeed in adapting themselves best
to their environment.
Darwin - Struggle
I doubt that religion can survive deep understanding.
The shallows are its natural habitat. Cranks
and fundamentalists are too often victimised
as scapegoats for religion in general. It
is only quite recently that Christianity
reinvented itself in non-fundamentalist
guise, and Islam has yet to do so.
Dawkins - Religion
Success breeds complacency. Complacency
breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive.
Grove - Success
It is not clear that intelligence has any
long-term survival value.
Hawking - Intelligent
I don't think the human race will survive
the next thousand years, unless we spread
into space. There are too many accidents
that can befall life on a single planet.
But I'm an optimist. We will reach out to
Hawking - Survival
Race - Universe
Surviving a failure gives you more self-confidence.
Failures are great learning tools.. but
they must be kept to a minimum.
Immelt - Survival
Esteem - Failure
I've been seeing the change. It's been steady.
It's been more controlled than people think.
And my own belief is that China knows it
also needs to be part of the world, and
that it needs to be able to have trade with
Europe and the United States in order to
house and feed a billion people. That's
really kind of single-mindedly what they
see their role as being.
Immelt - Belief
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.
F. Kennedy - USA
Our way of life is under attack. Those who
make themselves our enemy are advancing
around the globe. The survival of our friends
is in danger. And yet no war has been declared,
no borders have been crossed by marching
troops, no missiles have been fired.
F. Kennedy - USA
China is a country with a record of continuous
self-government going back 4,000 years,
the only society that has achieved this.
One must start with the assumption that
they must have learnt something about the
requirements for survival, and it is not
always to be assumed that we know it better
than they do.
Kissinger - China
Treasure the love you have received above
all. It will survive long after your gold
and good health have vanished.
Mandino - Love
Nobody talks of entrepreneurship as survival,
but that's exactly what it is and what nurtures
Roddick - Entrepreneurs
For me life is continuously being hungry.
The meaning of life is not simply to exist,
to survive, but to move ahead, to go up,
to achieve, to conquer.
Schwarzenegger - Action
The strong live and the weak die. There
is some bloodshed, and out of it emerges
a much leaner industry, which tends to survive.
Tata - Industry
One of the weaknesses of Indian industry
is that in many areas.. like consumer goods..
it is very fragmented. Individually, the
companies might not be able to survive.
What is needed is a consortium of like companies
in one industry, presenting a strong front
to the multinationals. The Swiss watch industry
