Incurably Dishonest quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#4. Lee, who had borne the guilt of polluting public waters and been cheated by a dishonest official at a tax office, wanted to feel vindicated. The tax office was corrupt, and taxes themselves were connected to dishonesty, he felt.... At issue in politics was trust. It was hard enough to trust people close at hand, and very hard to trust those far away; to locally rooted people, Washington D.C, felt very very far away. ...[Everyone] felt like victims of a frightening loss--or was it theft?--of their cultural home, their place in the world, and their honor. #Quote by Arlie Russell Hochschild
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Incurably Dishonest quotes by Anonymous
#6. The Rothschilds taught the world how to run drunkenly into debt. We common people shall never know, perhaps, all of the hidden meanings that are wrapped up in that wonderful word - " debt." It has so many meanings, so many morals and so many vices. The poor are always urged by their betters never to go into debt. The rich H4 OUR DISHONEST CONSTITUTION and the moderately rich, of course, go into debt as much as they please, or as much as they can. #Quote by Anonymous
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Ayn Rand
#7. Yes! And isn't that the root of every despicable action? Not selfishness, but precisely the absence of a self. Look at them. The man who cheats and lies, but preserves a respectable front. He knows himself to be dishonest, but others think he's honest and he derives his self-respect from that, second-hand. The man who takes credit for an achievement which is not his own. He knows himself to be mediocre, but he's great in the eyes of others. The frustrated wretch who professes love for the inferior and clings to those less endowed, in order to establish his own superiority by comparison. The man whose sole aim is to make money. Now I don't see anything evil in a desire to make money. But money is only a means to some end. If a man wants it for a personal purpose--to invest in his industry, to create, to study, to travel, to enjoy luxury--he's completely moral. But the men who place money first go much beyond that. Personal luxury is a limited endeavor. What they want is ostentation: to show, to stun, to entertain, to impress others. They're second-handers. Look at our so-called cultural endeavors. A lecturer who spouts some borrowed rehash of nothing at all that means nothing at all to him--and the people who listen and don't give a damn, but sit there in order to tell their friends that they have attended a lecture by a famous name. All second-handers. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Kevin Breel
#8. Everyone stumbles through it all the same; the main difference lies not in the lack of dysfunction but in the desire to be dishonest about it. Every family has problems, but only some let you see them. The rest just keep their chaos behind closed doors and out of conversation. #Quote by Kevin Breel
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Philip Gulley
#9. I have failed to be an appropriate model for Christian conduct many times. At significant points, when I should have led by example, I failed to embody the very principles I publicly affirm. I have been intolerant, greedy, slothful, and even dishonest. Were someone to say I was an example for how others should live, I would be flattered but would know their assessment was inaccurate. To say Jesus is 'only an example,' as if that were a small thing, underestimates not only the profound difficulty of serving such a role, but also discounts its rarity. #Quote by Philip Gulley
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#10. However a man who was honest and clever was always, ALWAYS more difficult to scam than someone who was both dishonest and clever.
Sincerity. It was so difficult , by definition, to fake. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Incurably Dishonest quotes by W. H. Auden
#11. I sit in one of the dives
On Fifty-second Street
Uncertain and afraid
As the clever hopes expire
Of a low dishonest decade #Quote by W. H. Auden
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Patrick Stump
#12. There are some bands for whom that works very well and it's no disrespect to them because I'm sure there's something honest and natural about it, but for us I feel like it would be dishonest and kinda disrespectful to that artwork to do that. To be like: "Okay, we're going to go back and only play these songs, even though we have an hour to an hour and a half set and we gotta play more songs, but we'll skimp you on your extra half hour." That's just silly to me. #Quote by Patrick Stump
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Douglas Southall Freeman
#13. The incurably suspicious Arthur Lee, youngest brother of Richard Henry, was of opinion that what others termed 'errors' in the Constitution were a deliberate scheme to create an oligarchy. #Quote by Douglas Southall Freeman
Incurably Dishonest quotes by John Burns
#14. The men who made the war were profuse in their praises of the man who kicked the P.M. out of his office and now degrades by his disloyal, dishonest and lying presence the greatest office in the State. #Quote by John Burns
Incurably Dishonest quotes by William Shakespeare
#15. Bid the dishonest man mend himself; if he mend, he is no longer dishonest. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#16. When dealing with the dishonest,
be shrewd.
When dealing with the crafty,
be cunning.
When dealing with the wise,
be prudent.
When dealing with the enlightened,
be sapient.
When dealing with all,
be noble.

When opponents want to engage you,
consider them.
When critics want to debate you,
regard them.
When enemies want to oppose you,
observe them.
When adversaries want to destroy you,
outfox them.
When rivals want to reconcile with you,
embrace them. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#17. When people don't respect one another seldom is there honesty. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#18. – and pompous fools drive me up the wall. Ordinary fools are alright; you can talk to them and try to help them out. But pompous fools – guys who are fools and covering it all over and impressing people as to how wonderful they are with all this hocus pocus – THAT, I CANNOT STAND! An ordinary fool isn't a faker; an honest fool is all right. But a dishonest fool is terrible! #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Scott Lynch
#19. I thought you specialised in dishonest finesse?"
"I also do a brisk trade in putting knives to peoples' throats and shouting at them," said Locke. #Quote by Scott Lynch
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Ron Paul
#20. Because gold is honest money it is disliked by dishonest men. #Quote by Ron Paul
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Benjamin A. Rogge
#21. The intellectual finds it reassuring to say that the businessman gets his money by luck; or monopoly, or exploitation, or dishonesty, or what have you. As a matter of fact, the truly dishonest man will last longer in college -teaching or the ministry than he will in the business world. #Quote by Benjamin A. Rogge
Incurably Dishonest quotes by David Byrne
#22. With a lot of what we take to be true feelings, especially on pop records, we feel them because they're cleverly crafted. And because the words are written by somebody who knows how to craft words and draw on those things and convey those feelings. That doesn't mean they're dishonest. But it also doesn't mean that it's all just pure primitive emotion spilling out. #Quote by David Byrne
Incurably Dishonest quotes by H.L. Mencken
#23. All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both. One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them. All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives. The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Incurably Dishonest quotes by George Orwell
#24. Is the English press honest or dishonest? At normal times it is deeply dishonest. All the papers that matter live off their advertisements, and the advertisers exercise an indirect censorship over news. Yet I do not suppose there is one paper in England that can be straightforwardly bribed with hard cash. In the France of the Third Republic all but a very few of the newspapers could notoriously be bought over the counter like so many pounds of cheese. #Quote by George Orwell
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Victoria Clayton
#25. Though he had not done much, perhaps, to improve the lot of man, he had never added to the world's misery. He had never been unkind or discourteous or greedy or dishonest. #Quote by Victoria Clayton
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Eric Bogosian
#26. If all I ever wrote about was inner city freaks, I think it would be dishonest. #Quote by Eric Bogosian
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Thomas Merton
#27. The first step to unselfish love is the recognition that our love may be deluded. We must first of all purify our love by renouncing the pleasure of loving as an end in itself. As long as pleasure is our end, we will be dishonest with ourselves and with those we love. We will not seek their good, but our own pleasure. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Ben Galley
#28. I've been shot at, hacked at, pummelled with catapult-stones, doused in flaming oil, tipped into drowning-pits, even covered by a landslide. I've seen every kind of violence humans know how to wreak, and I have learnt that you are creatures beyond cruel, beyond vengeful, beyond dishonest. So, yes, Knight. You are all villains in my mind. #Quote by Ben Galley
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Jerry Brown
#29. Organic farming is about buying out of a corrupt, illegal and dishonest system. #Quote by Jerry Brown
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Jonathan Dimbleby
#30. I was a reluctant convert, and I am by no means a zealot. But the evidence is compelling: to write off wind-power is either ill-informed or dishonest. #Quote by Jonathan Dimbleby
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Gazmend Kapllani
#31. In the final analysis, we are all migrants, armed with a temporary residence permit for this earth, each and every one of us incurably transient #Quote by Gazmend Kapllani
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Lindy West
#32. The myth of the "liberal elite" strategically frames liberal values - environmentalism, racial and gender equality, gay and trans liberation, immigrants' rights, the social safety net-as inherently frivolous, dishonest, a joke. By extension, the people who would benefit from the actualization of those values are "fake" Americans- the nation's most vulnerable groups being called decadent effetes #Quote by Lindy West
Incurably Dishonest quotes by Ayn Rand
#33. God help us, ma'am! Do you see what we saw? We saw that we'd been given a law to live by, a moral law, they called it, which punished those who observed it - for observing it. The more you tried to live up to it, the more you suffered; the more you cheated it, the bigger reward you got. Your honesty was like a tool left at the mercy of the next man's dishonesty. The honest ones paid, the dishonest collected. The honest lost, the dishonest won. How long could men stay good under this sort of a law of goodness? #Quote by Ayn Rand
