Fascinating Coexist quotations

Coexist quote We are not going to give up, we are many more who want to live in a world of pea
We are not going to give up, we are many more who want to live in a world of peace, without hate and where respect and tolerance are the basis of coexistence.

No religion, I'm just so explicit, I coexist in places you would never know existed.

Everyone has a right to peaceful coexistence, the basic personal freedoms, the alleviation of suffering, and the opportunity to lead a productive life.

The question is, 'If we cannot be with another, can we at least not hurt them? Can we, at least, find a way to coexist?'

I feel that the dormant goodwill in people needs to be stirred.

People need to hear that it makes sense to behave decently or to help others, to place common interests above their own, to respect the elementary rules of human coexistence.

Man-hating is everywhere, but everywhere it is twisted and transformed, disguised, tranquilized, and qualified. It coexists, never peacefully, with the love, desire, respect, and need women also feel for men. Always man-hating is shadowed by its milder, more diplomatic and doubtful twin, ambivalence.

The moment you become aware of the ego in you, it is strictly speaking no longer the ego, but just an old, conditioned mind-pattern. Ego implies unawareness. Awareness and ego cannot coexist.

It is of a universal rich with all that is particular, rich with all the particulars there are, the deepening of each particular, the coexistence of them all.

It can peacefully coexist with just about anything - whether it's hip-hop, rap, rock music, pop, R&B or jazz, there's a place for the saxophone in all of those styles.

Human race cannot coexist with nuclear weapons

We do not want to destroy any people.

It is precisely because we have been advocating coexistence that we have shed so much blood.

We still have a choice today: nonviolent coexistence or violent co-annihilation.

This may well be mankind's last chance to choose between chaos and community.


I don't think that the contradictions between capitalism and socialism can be resolved by war. This is no longer the age of the bow and arrow. It's the nuclear age, and war can annihilate us all. The only way to achieve solutions seems to be for the different social systems to coexist.

Between our way of life and communism there can be no peace, no paralyzing coexistence, no gray neutralism. There can only be conflict-total and without reconciliation.

Compassion can never coexist with judgement because judgement creates the distance, the distinction, which prevents us from really being with the other.

Life is the coexistence of all opposite values.

Joy and sorrow, pleasure and pain, up and down, hot and cold, here and there, light and darkness, birth and death. All experience is by contrast, and one would be meaningless without the other.

God has given us many faiths but only one world in which to co-exist.
