Adam Quotes

Man's survival, from the time of Adam and Eve until the invention of agriculture, must have been precarious because of his inability to ensure his food supply.

Norman Borlaug

Adam knew Eve his wife and she conceived. It is a pity that this is still the only knowledge of their wives at which some men seem to arrive.

Francis Herbert Bradley

None of us can boast about the morality of our ancestors. The record does not show that Adam and Eve were ever married.

Edgar Watson Howe

O son of Adam, if you have collected anything in excess of your actual need, you will act only as its trustee for someone else to use it.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

God, the Exalted, gave the angels intellect without desires, He gave the animals desires without intellect, and He gave both to the sons of Adam. So a man whose intellect prevails over his desires is better than the angels, whilst a man whose desire prevails over his intellect is worse than the animals.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

“History is the short trudge from Adam to atom.”

Leonard L. Levinson

History is the short trudge from Adam to atom.

Leonard L. Levinson

But there is another strong objection which I, one of the laziest of all the children of Adam, have against the Leisure State. Those who think it could be done argue that a vast machinery using electricity, water-power, petrol, and so on, might reduce the work imposed on each of us to a minimum. It might, but it would also reduce our control to a minimum. We should ourselves become parts of a machine, even if the machine only used those parts once a week. The machine would be our master, for the machine would produce our food, and most of us could have no notion of how it was really being produced

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

And, O! there lives within my heart A hope long nursed by me, (And should its cheering ray depart How dark my soul would be) That as in Adam all have died In Christ shall all men live And ever round his throne abide Eternal praise to give; That even the wicked shall at last Be fitted for the skies And when their dreadful doom is past To life and light arise.

Anne Bront

Adam ate the apple, and our teeth still ache.

Hungarian Proverb

By his disobedience of God's law, before man had exercised his power to bring children into the earth, not only Adam lost everything for himself, but his children were born as sinners, imperfect, and without the right to live.

Joseph Franklin Rutherford

O son of Adam, when you see that your Lord, the Glorified, bestows His Favors on you while you disobey Him, you should fear Him (take warning that His Wrath may not turn those very blessings into misfortunes).

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Only the soul that is naked and unashamed, can be pure and innocent, even as Adam was in the primal garden of humanity.

Sri Aurobindo
