Famous quotes containing the words activity and/or human:

    Labor is work that leaves no trace behind it when it is finished, or if it does, as in the case of the tilled field, this product of human activity requires still more labor, incessant, tireless labor, to maintain its identity as a “work” of man.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    “In great misfortunes,” he told himself, “people want to be alone. They have a right to be. And the misfortunes that occur within one are the greatest. Surely the saddest thing in the world is falling out of love—if once one has ever fallen in.”
    Falling out, for him, seemed to mean falling out of all domestic and social relations, out of his place in the human family, indeed.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)
