11 Essential Quotes About Humanity

Humanity, with all its definitions, are inextricably linked — humankind as a collective, and the compassion, kindness, and benevolence held within us. We are all on our own adventures, our own journeys, but ultimately we must accept that we’re all in this together. For it is up to the collective to love and protect one another, and this planet. In order to reach that level of collective collaboration and compassion for one another, we must begin with the “self”. We must find our own humanity, and be kind to ourselves. So delve deep into your own humanity, and find self-love, because once we truly love ourselves we are able to share our compassion and love wholly and unconditionally.

The planet will survive humanity’s ignorance, destruction, and selfishness.

We, humankind, may not.
