Before we were born, a whole society of storytellers was already here.

You have to teach them how to stop being inhuman  (To Be Human Quotes) After this whole acting thing is over and done, you eventually have to be human. Some people are never human.

There are funny lines and funny moments but again the comedy is born of the human experience and awkward pauses are a great part of what it is to be human  (To Be Human Quotes) We must not be frightened nor cajoled into accepting evil as deliverance from evil. We must go on struggling to be human, though monsters of abstractions police and threaten us  (To Be Human Quotes) I trust people to be human. Sometimes you do things that make amazing amounts of sense; sometimes you do things that don’t make any sense whatsoever  (To Be Human Quotes) And I realize that the decision to be human is not one single instant, but is a thousand choices made very day. It is choices we make every second and requires constant vigilance. We have to fight to remain human  (To Be Human Quotes) She felt an enveloping happiness to be alive, a joy made stronger by the certainty that someday it would all come to an end. Afterward she felt a little foolish, and never spoke to anyone about it. Now, however, she knows she wasn’t being foolish. She realizes that for no particular reason she stumbled into the core of what it is to be human. It’s a rare gift to under stand that you life is wondrous, and that it won’t last forever  (To Be Human Quotes) Patience gives your spouse permission to be human. It understands that everyone fails. When a mistake is made, it chooses to give them more time that they deserve to correct it. It gives you the ability to hold on during the rough times in your relationship rather than bailing out under the pressure  (To Be Human Quotes) There’s never been a rule of human behavior that hasn’t been broken by someone, somewhere, sometime, in some circumstance mundane or spectacular. To be human is to transcend the rules  (To Be Human Quotes) What is literature, really? Boiled down to a single sentence, I’d say it’s this: an endless conversation about what it means to be human. And to read literature is to engage in that conversation  (To Be Human Quotes) The most exciting breakthroughs of the 21st century will not occur because of technology but because of an expanding concept of what it means to be human  (To Be Human Quotes) We tend to think of dangers and uncertainties as anomalies in the continuum of life, or irruptions of unpredictable forces into a largely predictable world. I suggest the contrary: that dangers and uncertainties are an inescapable dimension of life. In fact, as we shall come to understand, they make life matter. They define what it means to be human  (To Be Human Quotes) We were made to be human beings here, and when people try to be anything else, they generally get into some sort of scrapes  (To Be Human Quotes) I feel most people’s sexuality is enormously complicated. That’s what it means to be human. Wouldn’t it be great if we honored that complexity rather than turn it into gossip or ridicule? Wouldn’t it be great if we accepted sexual diversity, in ourselves and others, without condemning it?  (To Be Human Quotes) Thus, if a composer wants to produce music that is relevant to his contemporaries, his chief problem is not really musical, though it may seem to him to be so; it is a problem of attitude to contemporary society and culture in relation to the basic human problem of learning to be human  (To Be Human Quotes) I write because to write a new sentence, let alone a new poem, is to cross the threshold into both a larger existence and a profound mystery. A thought was not there, then it is. An image, a story, an idea about what it is to be human, did not exist, then it does. With every new poem, an emotion new to the heart, to the world, speaks itself into being  (To Be Human Quotes) We have to do away with a false and misleading dualism, one which abstracts man on the one hand and technology on the other, as if the two were quite separate kinds of realities... Man is by nature a technological animal; to be human is to be technological... When we speak of technology, this is another way of speaking about man himself in one of his manifestations  (To Be Human Quotes) Science fiction is very well suited to asking philosophical questions; questions about the nature of reality, what it means to be human, how do we know the things that we think we know  (To Be Human Quotes) I take a less gloomy view. A good life means fighting to be human under growing difficulties. A lot of young folk know this and fight very hard, but after a few years life gets easier for them and they think they’ve become completely human when they’ve only stopped trying. I stopped trying, but my life was so full of strenuous routines that I wouldn’t have noticed had it been not for my disease. My whole professional life was a diseased and grandiose attack on my humanity. It is an achievement to know that I am simply a wounded and dying man. Who can be more regal than a dying man?  (To Be Human Quotes) To be human is to be aware of the passage of time; no concept lies closer to the core of our consciousness  (To Be Human Quotes) Only think about the people you enjoy. Only read the books you enjoy, that make you happy to be human. Only go to the events that actually make you laugh or fall in love. Only deal with the people who love you back, who are winners and want you to win too  (To Be Human Quotes) Just as drowning cannot be equated with swimming, mere existence is not the same as abundant life. We have been offered a new way to live – a new way to be human  (To Be Human Quotes) The power of art is that it can connect us to one another, and to larger truths about what it means to be alive and what it means to be human  (To Be Human Quotes) Our officials want nothing more than to be at the top of their professional game and make the correct call. That’s what they do; that’s their living, that’s their pride, that’s their joy. They don’t achieve that because they happen to be human  (To Be Human Quotes) We can’t say that we believe in each other’s fundamental humanity and then turn a blind eye to the reality of each others existence and the truth of each other’s hearts. We must be allies. And we must be allies in this business because to be represented is to be humanized. And as long as anyone, anywhere is being made to feel less human, our very definition of humanity is at stake and we are all vulnerable  (To Be Human Quotes) Many artists use their own lives as a kind of case study to examine what it’s like to be human  (To Be Human Quotes)
