How to use human in a sentence?

  1. Judson Mitcham:

    I don't see how anyone could fail to be troubled and moved by the stockade, with its deadlines, escape tunnels and Providence Spring, that subtext of such clean, well-kept grounds is chaos and human limitation, and I can't walk across the stockade field without feeling challenged and defeated by its awful irony. Even the sky looks different from there.

  2. Mae West:

    To err is human, but it feels divine.

  3. Daniel Castro:

    To hold algorithms to a higher standard than human decisions implies that automated decisions are inherently less trustworthy or more dangerous than human ones, which is not the case, this would only serve to stigmatize and discourage AI use, which could reduce its beneficial social and economic impacts.

  4. Vaclav Havel:

    Human beings are compelled to live within a lie, but they can be compelled to do so only because they are in fact capable of living in this way. Therefore not only does the system alienate humanity, but at the same time alienated humanity supports this system as its own involuntary masterplan, as a degenerate image of its own degeneration, as a record of people's own failure as individuals.

  5. Di Vincenzo:

    We have a nearly complete human fossil skeleton to describe and study in detail. It is a dream, his morphology offers a rare glimpse on the earliest phase of the evolutionary history of Neanderthals and on one of the most crucial events in human evolution. He can help us better understand when — and, in particular, how — Neanderthals evolved.
