Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Melanie Joy
#1. Becoming aware of the intense suffering of billions of animals, and of our own participation in that suffering, can bring up painful emotions: sorrow and grief for the animals; anger at the injustice and deception of the system; despair at the enormity of the problem; fear that trusted authorities and institutions are, in fact, untrustworthy; and guilt for having contributed to the problem. Bearing witness means choosing to suffer. Indeed, empathy is literally 'feeling with.' Choosing to suffer is particularly difficult in a culture that is addicted to comfort
a culture that teaches that pain should be avoided whenever possible and that ignorance is bliss. We can reduce our resistance to witnessing by valuing authenticity over personal pleasure, and integration over ignorance. #Quote by Melanie Joy
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Batuhan Ibal
#2. Ignorance is a bliss. One does not simply believe everything they see on the Internet. If an individual has full swag control and mastery of the deception of swag, one could have easily seen through this 'troll'. This is why learning the basic 4 swag principles and mastering them is extremely necessary. Basically, one must AT least master the 4 elements of swag in order to see through deception and perceive where the swag count energy is being emitted from. this state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking , where it is absent, discussion is adapted to become worse than useless.
My title as 'Man of Swag' can never be replaced. I am Swag #Quote by Batuhan Ibal

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Sylvia Plath
#19. Anyway, there are two tentative solutions for getting rid of selfishness - both involving a stoic casting - off of the thin tenuous little identity which I love and cherish so dearly - and being confident that, once on the other side, I shall never miss my own little ambitions for my conceited self, but shall be content in serving the ambitions of my mate, or of a society, or cause. (Yet I will not, I cannot accept any of those solutions. Why? Stubborn selfish pride. I will not make what is inevitable easier for my-self by the blinding ignorance-is-bliss "losing-and-finding" theory. Oh, no! I will go, eyes open, into my torture, and remain fully cognizant, unwinking, while they cut and stitch and lop off my cherished malignant organs.) So much for selflove: I carry it with me like a dear cancerous relative - to be disposed of only when desperation sets in. #Quote by Sylvia Plath

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Darren Shan
#22. I stop reading after half an hour. I've had enough. Humanity has hit a brick wall. We're facing our end, like the dinosaurs millions of years before us. The only difference is we've got journalists on hand to document every blow and setback, cataloguing our rapid, painful downfall in vibrant, vicious detail. Personally, I think the dinosaurs had the better deal. When it comes to impending, unavoidable extinction, ignorance is bliss. #Quote by Darren Shan
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Thomas Gray
#23. To each his suff'rings: all are men, / Condemn'd alike to groan, / The tender for another's pain; / Th' unfeeling for his own. #Quote by Thomas Gray

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Eric Frank Russell
#40. What does
this F. - I.W. mean?"
"Initial-slang," informed Baines. "Made correct
by common usage. It has become a worldwide
motto. You'll see it all over the place if you haven't
noticed it already."
"I have seen it here and there but attached no importance
to it and thought nothing more about it. I
remember now that it was inscribed in several places
including Seth's and the fire depot."
"It was on the sides of that bus we couldn't
empty," put in Gleed. "It didn't mean anything to
me."
"It means plenty," said Jeff. "Freedom - I
Won't!"
"That kills me," Gleed responded. "I'm stone
dead already. I've dropped in my tracks." He
watched Harrison thoughtfully pocketing the plaque.
"A piece of abracadabra. What a weapon!"
"Ignorance is bliss," asserted Baines, strangely
sure of himself. "Especially when you don't know
that what you're playing with is the safety catch of
something that goes bang."
"All right," challenged Gleed, taking him up on
that. "Tell us how it works."
"I won't." Baines' grin reappeared. He seemed to
be highly satisfied about something.
"That's a fat lot of help." Gleed felt let down, especially
over that momentary hoped-for reward.
"You brag and boast about a one-way weapon, toss
across a slip of stuff with three letters on it and then
go dumb. Any folly will do for braggarts and any
braggart can tal #Quote by Eric Frank Russell
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Gayle Lynds

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Lisa Shearin
#46. Whoever said ignorance is bliss must have died a horrible death with a really surprised look on his face. #Quote by Lisa Shearin
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Robert Musil
#47. What is it you do, then? I'll tell you: You leave out whatever doesn't suit you. As the author himself has done before you. Just as you leave things out of your dreams and fantasies. By leaving things out, we bring beauty and excitement into the world. We evidently handle our reality by effecting some sort of compromise with it, an in-between state where the emotions prevent each other from reaching their fullest intensity, graying the colors somewhat. Children who haven't yet reached that point of control are both happier and unhappier than adults who have. And yes, stupid people also leave things out, which is why ignorance is bliss. So I propose, to begin with, that we try to love each other as if we were characters in a novel who have met in the pages of a book. Let's in any case leave off all the fatty tissue that plumps up reality. #Quote by Robert Musil
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by B.J. Novak
#48. I think it's better to not know certain things. It gives the world an extra bit of mystery, which is important to us as human beings. #Quote by B.J. Novak
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Phil Volatile
#49. And somewhere
out there,
in the river of
addicts,
alcoholics,
wife beaters,
doormats,
overeducated legalized thieves,
fascist police,
and bitter rivalries
someone told me
it's a good city,
and I don't know
what's more frightening #Quote by Phil Volatile

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Courtney Summers
#55. Girls go missing all the time. And ignorance is bliss. I didn't want this story because I was afraid. I was afraid of what I wouldn't find and I was afraid of what I would.
I still am. #Quote by Courtney Summers
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Alan W. Watts
#56. The agnostic, the skeptic, is neurotic, but this does not imply a false philosophy; it implies the discovery of facts to which he does not know how to adapt himself. The intellectual who tries to escape from neurosis by escaping from the facts is merely acting on the principle that "where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise. #Quote by Alan W. Watts

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Kelseyleigh Reber
#62. That is normal ... To be afraid. Do not let anyone tell you any different. No one can ever say that what you feel is right or wrong, or pointless or unworthy of your time. That is a truth for you to decide. Ignorance is bliss, but there comes a time when you must open your eyes and face the truth - when you must be honest with yourself. #Quote by Kelseyleigh Reber

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#65. He could not bear to see pain, or sorrow, or misery of any kind; and, if it came under his notice, he was never easy till he had relieved it, for the time, at any rate. But he was afraid of being made uncomfortable; so, if he possibly could, he would avoid seeing any one who was ill or unhappy; and he did not thank any one for telling him about them. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Kevin Ansbro

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Julianna Margulies
#68. I'm a believer in 'Ignorance is bliss.' #Quote by Julianna Margulies
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Nicholas Carr
#69. As a society, we've become suspicious of such acts. Out of ignorance or laziness or timidity, we've turned the Luddites into caricatures, emblems of backwardness. We assume that anyone who rejects a new tool in favor of an older one is guilty of nostalgia, of making choices sentimentally rather than rationally. But the real sentimental fallacy is the assumption that the new thing is always better suited to our purposes and intentions than the old thing. That's the view of a child, naive and pliable. What makes one tool superior to another has nothing to do with how new it is. What matters is how it enlarges us or diminishes us, how it shapes our experience of nature and culture and one another. To cede choices about the texture of our daily lives to a grand abstraction called progress is folly. #Quote by Nicholas Carr
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Samuel Hopkins Adams
#70. According to the estimate of a prominent advertising firm, above 90 per cent, of the earning capacity of the prominent nostrums is represented by their advertising. And all this advertising is based on the well-proven theory of the public's pitiable ignorance and gullibility in the vitally important matter of health. #Quote by Samuel Hopkins Adams
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by George Orwell
#71. If he were allowed contact with foreigners he would discover that they are creatures similar to himself and that most of what he has been told about them is lies. The sealed world in which he lives would be broken, and the fear, hatred, and self-righteousness on which his morale depends might evaporate. It is therefore realized on all sides that however ofter Persia, or Egypt, or Java, or Ceylon may change hands, the main frontiers must never be crossed by anything except bombs. #Quote by George Orwell
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Joseph Campbell
#72. Life is like arriving late for a movie, having to figure out what was going on without bothering everybody with a lot of questions, and then being unexpectedly called away before you find out how it ends. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Victor Hugo
#73. Prayer is an august avowal of ignorance. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#74. The accusation is made without reference to the true nature of the situation. Environmental problems of delinquency are interpreted as evidence of racial criminality. Crises arising in Northern schools are interpreted as proofs that Negroes are inherently delinquent. The extremists do not recognize that these school problems are symptoms of urban dislocation, rather than expressions of racial deficiency. Criminality and delinquency are not racial; poverty and ignorance breed crime whatever the racial group may be. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Warren Farrell
#75. Self-help books for those who believe You can have it all often advise, Follow your bliss and money will follow. With the collapse of the stock markets the reality of trade-offs is more like, When you follow your bliss, it's money you'll miss. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Robert Jackson Bennett
#76. Is it ignorance if you don't care to know it?" "Yes. That is almost the definition of ignorance, actually. #Quote by Robert Jackson Bennett
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Geoff Dyer
#77. In my 30s I used to go to the gym even though I hated it. The purpose of going to the gym was to postpone the day when I would stop going. That's what writing is to me: a way of postponing the day when I won't do it any more, the day when I will sink into a depression so profound it will be indistinguishable from perfect bliss. #Quote by Geoff Dyer
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#78. The narrow path to wisdom is better than the wide road to ignorance. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Peter David
#79. That was when it was all made painfully clear to me. When you are a child, there is joy. There is laughter. And most of all, there is trust. Trust in your fellows. When you are an adult ... then comes suspicion, hatred, and fear. If children ran the world, it would be a place of eternal bliss and cheer. Adults run the world; and there is war, and enmity, and destruction unending. Adults who take charge of things muck them up, and then produce a new generation of children and say, "The children are the hope of the future." And they are right. Children are the hope of the future. But adults are the damnation of the present, and children become adults as surely as adults become worm food.
Adults are the death of hope. #Quote by Peter David
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Alfred Austin
#80. The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. #Quote by Alfred Austin
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#81. Ignorance of the law is no excuse in any country. If it were, the laws would lose their effect, because it can always be pretended. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#82. Silence and solitude are universally recognized spiritual practices, and there are good reasons for this. Learning how to discipline your speech is a way of preventing your energies from spilling out of you through the rupture of your mouth, exhausting you and filling the world with words, words, words instead of serenity, peace and bliss. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Alison Bliss
#83. What's poking me?"
"An involuntary reflex," Jake said, "Roll over at your own risk."
"Is it going to be a chronic condition?"
"God, I hope so, I'm too young to have those kinds of medical issues."
"I have a cure."
"What?" he asked. "Sandwiching a pillow between us?"
"Amputation."
"Never mind," Jake said grimly, "Problem solved. #Quote by Alison Bliss
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Kathe Koja
#84. Recalling those gone times, old memories lit by the fire of the new, I did not this time wonder how long it would last; I was too smart for that now. Take what you get, and don't think. Of course it could never be that easy, but there were moments, like now, that I could successfully pretend that it was, and I had no inclination to try to peer past those moments. I'm not one who wants to know the future: at the best it spoils the present, with longing or dismay, and at the worst, well. Who really wants to find out how tight the sling is, for your own very personal ass, who wants to know how deep the shit will really be. Not you. Not me either. Because it's rarely bliss saved up, is it, when you finally get there. I'll take my now, waking with a lover's scent on me, around me, take my hopes before they're maybe tragedy; a good morning is a good morning, even if it leads to apocalypse at night. #Quote by Kathe Koja
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Chinmayananda Saraswati
#85. Tranquility is the Truth, Truth is beauty beauty is happiness and bliss is divine #Quote by Chinmayananda Saraswati
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Jeremy Taylor
#86. It is impossible to make people understand their ignorance, for it requires knowledge to perceive it; and, therefore, he that can perceive it hath it not. #Quote by Jeremy Taylor
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Steven Erikson
#87. The West has been grinding Islam under its heel for a long time," he said. "A civilization and a culture beaten into exhaustion, now past its prime and longing for a return to some nostalgic past looking nothing like the real one. Science, literacy, architecture, art, mathematics, tolerance - Islam once led the world in these things. That's the real past. Not this paranoid, benighted plunge into dogma and ignorance and violence. All those fingers pointing back a thousand years - the Laughing Imam gave them all a nudge, from ignorance into enlightenment. Suddenly, the future wasn't the false past. Wasn't an endless succession of cultural, political, and economic defeat at the hands of the Infidel. No, now the future is going to be the rebirth of Islam's Grand Age. Islam's civilized glory. Faith not as a weapon, but as an anchor in the storm to come, in the storm now upon us. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Supriya Kaur Dhaliwal
#88. Life is resilient! Sometimes, your lips may just squander the bliss of your heart. At times, you may even wish that the sky was red. But deep down there lies a seed of goodwill that sprouts only when the sky is actually blue! #Quote by Supriya Kaur Dhaliwal
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Marshall Savage
#89. If we deny our awesome challenge; turn our backs on the living universe, and forsake our cosmic destiny, we will commit a crime of unutterable magnitude. Mankind alone has the power to carry out this fundamental change in the universe. Our failure would lead to consequences unthinkable. This is perhaps the first and only chance the universe will ever have to awaken from its long night and live. We are the caretakers of this delicate spark of Life. To let it flicker and die through ignorance, neglect, or lack of imagination is a horror too great to contemplate. #Quote by Marshall Savage
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#90. A stupid is one who thinks that those in power today had clandestine means of getting there, yet wants to get there without thinking of the clandestine route they would be taking. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Randa Abdel-Fattah
#91. Most Muslim women know it is fear and curiosity that cause people to stare. They know it is ignorance and stereotypes that cause people to suppose that a piece of material covering the hair strips a woman of the ability to speak English, pursue a career, work a remote control. #Quote by Randa Abdel-Fattah
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by William Jennings Bryan
#92. The only part of evolution in which any considerable interest is felt is evolution applied to man. A hypothesis in regard to the rocks and plant life does not affect the philosophy upon which one's life is built. Evolution applied to fish, birds and beasts would not materially affect man's view of his own responsibilities except as the acceptance of an unsupported hypothesis as to these would be used to support a similar hypothesis as to man. The evolution that is harmful - distinctly so - is the evolution that destroys man's family tree as taught by the Bible and makes him a descendant of the lower forms of life. This ... is a very vital matter. #Quote by William Jennings Bryan
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Nicole Sager
#93. I have chosen a life that depends on one's awareness that every breath may be his last, every step may bring his downfall, and every word may stir betrayal. In truth, I must live in conscious ignorance of the mere thread that holds my life aloft, trusting that God alone has the power to sever it, and that He will do so only when my work on earth is complete. #Quote by Nicole Sager
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Allan Bloom
#94. True openness is the accompaniment of the desire to know, hence of the awareness of ignorance. To deny the possibility of knowing good and bad is to suppress true openness. #Quote by Allan Bloom
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Dara Reidyr
#95. Most of social media is simply a popularity contest. Well, I'm not here for the competition; I have important business and words of depth to change the course. So, while you follow the path of the ignorant, the rest of us will celebrate truth and the higher path. #Quote by Dara Reidyr
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Douglas Preston
#96. quotation from Einstein: 'The only thing more dangerous than ignorance is arrogance.' I would suggest to Dr. Chauncy that in combination, the two qualities are even more alarming. #Quote by Douglas Preston
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Kabir Edmund Helminski
#97. The essential insight and consistent point of view of Islam is tawhid: the fundamental Oneness underlying all of existence. From the perspective of tawhid, everything is emerging from God, being sustained by God, and ultimately returning to God. This has profound significance for all of our experience within this existence. All areas of human knowledge are related to this fundamental, unifying Truth. Sufism is the science, the objective knowledge, of the souls relationship to God. This science describes an Origin, a downward arc of manifestation, and an upward arc of return. In the arc of manifestation, everything is coming down from God into successive levels of ever denser realities. In the arc of return, we recognize our Origin and begin the journey back toward its light. This essentially means that we ourselves must become more conscious of the light within ourselves.

[...]

The arc of return calls us to make a journey from darkness and toward the light. The immediate darkness we face around us is the imaginary world created by human ignorance, fear, self-righteousness, and hatred. We must not succumb to the mass heedlessness and self-hypnotism which presents itself to us, mostly through the mass media, as the so-called real world.
It is our responsibility to find and act upon the knowledge that can guide us in that journey. This means establishing the truth of tawhid within our own minds and hearts.

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#98. In saying the word 'Sachchidanand' [sat-chit-anand, eternal knowledge and vision leading to bliss], it has great 'effect'. There is an 'effect' even when it is said without the understanding [of it's meaning]. When it is said with the understanding, there is tremendous benefit. Saying these words produces vibrations and everything churns. Everything is 'Scientific'. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#99. According to the mystics, this search for divine bliss is the entire purpose of a human life. this is why we all chose to be born, and this is why all the suffering and pain of life on earth is worthwhile
just for the chance to experience this infinite love. And once you have found this divinity within, can you hold it? Because if you can ... bliss. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by G.L.S. Shackle
#100. We are ignorant of what it is we do not know even though we know more than we can ever say #Quote by G.L.S. Shackle
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by John Steinbeck
#101. Lee's hand shook as he filled the delicate cups. He drank his down in one gulp. "Don't you see?" he cried. "The American Standard translation orders men to triumph over sin, and you can call sin ignorance. The King James translation makes a promise in 'Thou shalt,' meaning that men will surely triumph over sin. But the Hebrew word, the word timshel - 'Thou mayest' - that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if 'Thou mayest' - it is also true that 'Thou mayest not.' Don't you see? #Quote by John Steinbeck
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Lanier, Jaron
#102. The foundation of the search for truth must be the ability to notice one's own ignorance. Acknowledging ignorance is a beautiful feature that science and spirituality hold in common. BUMMER rejects it.

Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Pedro Okoro
#103. The reason why Christians do not make use of their entitlement in Christ Jesus is ignorance, or as the Bible puts it beautifully, 'lack of knowledge'! #Quote by Pedro Okoro
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Vishwas Chavan
#104. Life is a balancing act. While we have all the rights to be in freedom, peace, harmony and bliss; we do have a responsibility to ensure that others too enjoy their own freedom, peace, harmony and bliss. #Quote by Vishwas Chavan
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#105. This perpetual fear, always accompanying mankind in the ignorance of causes, as it were in the dark, must needs have for object something. And therefore when there is nothing to be seen, there is nothing to accuse, either of their good, or evil fortune, but some power, or agent invisible: in which sense perhaps it was, that some of the old poets said, that the gods were at first created by human fear: which spoken of the gods, that is to say, of the many gods of the Gentiles, is very true. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#106. The question of whether or not there is a God or truth or reality or whatever you like to call it, can never be answered by books, by priests, philosopher's or saviours. Nobody and nothing can answer the question but you yourself, and that is why you must know yourself - Immaturity lies only in total ignorance of self. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Martin Luther
#107. He who wholly renounces himself, and relies not on mere human reason, will make good progress in the Scriptures; but the world comprehends them not, from ignorance of that mortification which is the gift of God's word. #Quote by Martin Luther
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by David Bentley Hart
#108. The contemplative seeks to be drawn ever more deeply into the circle of divine being, consciousness, and bliss, the circle of God knowing and delighting in the infinity of his own essence. The practice of contemplative prayer, therefore, is among the highest expressions of rationality possible, a science of consciousness and of its relation to the being of all things, requiring the most intense devotion of mind and will to a clear perception of being and consciousness in their unity. #Quote by David Bentley Hart
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour
#109. George Bernard Shaw once said: "Capitalism has destroyed our
belief in any effective power but that of self interest backed by force."
When liberals make the argument that capitalism is the cause of all
of our problems, they are either speaking out of abject ignorance
or being totally disingenuous to protect their own political interests.
We have not had true free-market capitalism in this country on any
wide scale. Where we have had economic successes in this nation's
history, it has been those times when people have done something
outside of the government's involvement. Every single time the federal
government has been involved, it has created chaos, waste, and
corruption. The historical record is overwhelmingly one of gross
incompetence. #Quote by Ziad K. Abdelnour
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Angie Karan
#110. Bliss is doing that which fulfills you. Action that touches you deeply and fully. Bliss is active. Bliss is...following your dreams, desires, or heart. Bliss is that deep, fulfilling, sustainable, driving need you have. That thing that is the true "you."Your bliss is your life's purpose. Your bliss gives your otherwise meaningless life meaning. When you are following your bliss you are powerful and empowered. You are focused and the universe is waiting to help you. #Quote by Angie Karan
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Eric Ambler
#111. In a dying civilisation, political prestige is the reward not of the shrewdest diagnostician but of the man with the best beside manner. It is the decoration conferred on mediocrity by ignorance. Yet there remains one sort of political prestige that may still be worn with a certain pathetic dignity; it is that given to the liberal-minded leader of a party of conflicting doctrinaire extremists. His dignity is that of all doomed men: for, whether the two extremes proceed to mutual destruction or whether one of them prevails, doomed he is, either to suffer the hatred of the people or to die a martyr. #Quote by Eric Ambler
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#112. It is only when people don't know history well that they judge the present so blindly in ignorance! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Ignorance Is Bliss quotes by Joyce Brothers
#113. Love, real love, is not simply a state of bliss. It is an ever-changing state, the result of time and emotional development, of trust and commitment. #Quote by Joyce Brothers
