I am an idealist. I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on my way. Carl Sandburg

I believe that hope for the future depends on each of us taking nonviolence into our hearts and minds and developing new and imaginative structures which are nonviolent and life-giving for all. Some people will argue that this is too idealistic. I believe it is very realistic. I am convinced that humanity is fast evolving to this higher consciousness. For those who say it cannot be done, let us remember that humanity learned to abolish slavery. Our task now is no less than the abolition of violence and war …. We can rejoice and celebrate today because we are living in a miraculous time. Everything is changing and everything is possible. — Mairead Corrigan Maguire

 

I have to be an optimist and say that it might get better. I am a mixture of idealist and realist. — Sir Roger Moore

 

I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. Anne Frank

 

I think it’s realistic to have hope. One can be a perverse idealist and say the easiest thing: ‘I despair. The world’s no good.’ That’s a perverse idealist. It’s practical to hope, because the hope is for us to survive as a human species. That’s very realistic. — Studs Terkel

 

Idealism increases in direct proportion to one’s distance from the problem. John Galsworthy Quotes about Idealists – Idealism – Ideals – Idealist – Idealistic – Quote

Idealism is fine, but as it approaches reality the cost becomes prohibitive. William F. Buckley

 

Idealist connects people, organizations, and resources to help build a world where all people can live free and dignified lives. — Idealist.org

 

Ideals are like the stars: we never reach them, but like the mariners of the sea, we chart our course by them. Carl Schurz

 

Ideals are the world’s masters. Josiah Gilbert Holland

 

If you are going to build something in the air it is always better to build castles than houses of cards. Georg C. Lichtenberg

I’m an idealist without illusions. — John F. Kennedy Quotes about Idealists – Idealism – Ideals – Idealist – Idealistic – Quote

 

It is easy enough to be friendly to one’s friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business. Mohandas Gandhi

 

It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is. Hermann Hesse

 

It is the style of idealism to console itself for the loss of something old with the ability to gape at something new. Karl Kraus

It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet, I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever-approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again. Anne Frank

 

Man is born a predestined idealist, for he is born to act. To act is to affirm the worth of an end, and to persist in affirming the worth of an end is to make an ideal. — Oliver Wendell Holmes Quotes about Idealists – Idealism – Ideals – Idealist – Idealistic – Quote

 

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has. Margaret Mead

 

Some people want to make the world a better place. I just want to make the world a better-looking place. Banksy

 

Sometimes older folks tell me: ‘I was idealistic and thought I could change the world once, too, but then I grew up.’ I’m trying to help us change our definition of growing up, so that it ceases to mean giving up on our ideals, and comes to mean learning how to live our dreams, every day, on the Earth. I want to awaken the passion and creativity of youth, combine it with the wisdom, experience and insight of elders, and transform our world. ~ Ocean Robbins Quotes about Idealists – Idealism – Ideals – Idealist – Idealistic – Quote

 

The developed world has a vast, under-utilized asset that is not being leveraged to its best advantage: idealistic people who want to make the world a better place. For most of a century, idealistic people have been encouraged to use anger, protest, lobbying, and legal action in order to make the world a better place. While most certainly some of these behaviors and activities were necessary, we have reached the point at which the social benefit of such behaviors is decreasing. We have reached the point at which creation, rather than attack, ought to be the first obligation of reformers. The social entrepreneurship movement is the first tip of this iceberg. We want to create a world in which all idealists realize that the creation of new enterprises is the most powerful way to make positive change in the world. If all the energy that is currently invested in zero-sum political conflict was gradually transferred to the committed creation of sustainable enterprises, the cumulative impact on behalf of the good would be extraordinary.  — Michael Strong

 

The idealists dream and the dream is told, and the practical men listen and ponder and bring back the truth and apply it to human life, and progress and growth and higher human ideals come into being and so the world moves ever on. — Anna Howard Shaw

 

To give without any reward, or any notice, has a special quality of its own. Anne Morrow Lindbergh Quotes about Idealists – Idealism – Ideals – Idealist – Idealistic – Quote
