Sample Quotes on Human Relations:

I started noticing racism as a teenager....We were treated differently and it was a bitter and hurtful experience. I was treated badly because I was poor, Mexican American, and a girl.

--Dolores Huerta

Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.

--George Eliot

My motto for the home, in education as in life, is this: For heaven’s sake, let people live their own lives. It is an attitude that fits any situation.

--A. S. Neill

Prejudices are rarely overcome by argument; not being founded on reason, they cannot be destroyed by logic.

--Tryon Edwards 

Prejudice is a great time saver. You can form opinions without having to get the facts.

--E. B. White

Empathy is as important as literacy. When we read with a child, we are doing so much more than teaching him to read or instilling in her a love of language. We are doing something that I believe is just as powerful, and it is something that we are losing as a culture: By reading with a child, we are teaching that child to be human.

—Anna Dewdney

During my second year of nursing school our professor gave us a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: ‘What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?’ Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper,

leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one student asked if the

last question would count toward our grade. ‘Absolutely,’ the professor said. ‘In

your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your

attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello.’ I’ve never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.

—Joann C. Jones

When you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim; when you have seen hate filled policemen curse, kick and even kill your black brothers and sisters; when you see the vast majority of your 20 million Negro brothers smothering in an airtight cage of poverty in the midst of an affluent society; when you suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you seek to explain to your 6-year-old-daughter why she can’t go the public amusement park that has just been advertised on television, and see tears welling up in her eyes when she is told that Funtown is closed to colored

children, and see ominous clouds of inferiority beginning to form in her little

mental sky, and see her beginning to distort her personality by developing an

unconscious bitterness toward white people.

--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that never was before and will never be again. And what do we teach our children in school? We teach them that two and two make four and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them….‘Do you know what you are?’ You are a marvel. You are unique. In all of the world there is no other child exactly like you. In the millions of years that have passed there has never been another child like you. And look at your body....what a wonder it is! You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must cherish one another. You must work; we all must work to make this world worthy of its children. The love of one’s country is a natural thing. But why should love stop at the border? We are all leaves of a tree and the tree is humanity.

--Pablo Casals

Prejudice is the child of ignorance.

--William Hazlitt

There is but one race—humanity.

--George Moore

Before God and the bus driver we are all equal.

--German Proverb

Almost all of our sorrows spring out of our relations with other people.

—Arthur Schopenhauer
