Be Human

“There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.”
C. JoyBell C.

“Do you know what the definition of insane is? Yes. It’s the inability to relate to another human being. It’s the inability to love.”
Richard Yates, Revolutionary Road

“It's shocking the things we call love.”
Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming


"Before you call yourself a Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu or any other theology, learn to be human first.”
Shannon L. Alder

“My first world is humanity. My second world is humanism. And, I live in the third world being merely a human.”
Santosh Kalwar

“Making people change because you can’t deal with who they are isn’t how it’s supposed to be done. What needs to be done is for people to pull their heads out of their asses. You say ‘cure.’ I hear ‘you’re not human enough.”
John Scalzi, Lock In

“Love is only an expression of feelings from heart. If the world is starved for love, then it only entails the need to cultivate and develop feelings in the heart of people.”
Anuj Somany


Being Human

Being Human is such a blessing. We will not realize it until we are turned into a mosquito or something powerless. We are the most intelligent lot of living organisms and we are seen in abundance. Why were we created in abundance? What was the Goal behind it? Have we ever wondered?

We all are here on this planet to unite. We are seen in abundance so that we can join hands and make a big circle on this planet. By Joining Hands, we will see that all our sorrows have disappeared and we are living with compassion and harmony. This harmony will make us face all sorts of natural disasters and even with loss of life, property we will have each other to bring us out of such calamities.

In the face of a Calamity

Needless to say, whenever nature has struck us, we have shown mother nature that we are ONE. We work to help each other out. Distances don't matter and money knows no limits even if countries are facing recession and people are jobless. We should regard this as a test and strive to work hard together to make our human race come out of any distress.

We have been faced with many such natural calamities and recently our mankind has been hit badly at Haiti. It is a big tragedy with so many people dead or missing. People are without shelter, water, food. There is total chaos. The President of Haiti is also homeless. That has left the whole mankind in shock. People are traveling from over the world to come and help the people in Haiti. People who cannot come are donating money, blood, food. People are being helped in any way possible i.e time or money. This is what human race is all about.

The Essence of being a Human


We look out for each other. We rejoiced together when we entered the new year and now we share the grief together. We humans, cannot see another human cry and are/should always be there to lend a hand to end their sorrow. We cannot be happy when our man kind is in dungeon. This is human. A very civilized organism which is created by the Almighty. I am sure at this hour, the Almighty must be so proud of humans because we as humans, are fulfilling our duty by helping each other.

Rod Stewart's Tribute to being a Human

Rod Stewart has a beautiful song titled Human. It describes the potential we humans have and what we have achieved so far. We are one of the most powerful organisms on this earth and let's not forget that with that thought in mind one of Rod Stewart's line is, " There is nothing that I cannot be"

We are proud to be humans and if in any way, we have not yet fulfilled our duty we can still focus on that area and try to BE HUMAN.

Very nice hub. Everyone is looking for answers and fullfillment of life along with true purpose. No matter what our background is the fact is we are as you say (HUMAN) and incapable of being perfect. We should do the best we can as often as we can, not judge others but try to understand them. Thanks for sharing.

To err is human. We are definitely far from perfect. I think we were brought onto mother Earth to join hands and show compassion to others. I think this will make our stay more memorable. Thanks for shared such a wonderful hub.

our biggest advantage over all the other species is that "WE CAN THINK" and i think this is something we should never give up and accept nothing without thought since it is thought that has made us what we are.

cheers for a thought provoking hub Ruchira.

Hello Neeleshkulkarni,

Well said indeed...We have got the brains to think which unfortunately even if the other species do have the ability but do not have the means to communicate.

Thank you for your precious comment and stopping by!
