Injustice quotes by Pauline Kael
#1. A book might be written on the injustice of the just. #Quote by Pauline Kael
Injustice quotes by Melanie Joy
#2. 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
Injustice quotes by James Tooley
#3. Current education policy is not in the interests of women. An injustice is being perpetrated. #Quote by James Tooley
Injustice quotes by Diane Watson
#4. Her legacy was her quiet dignity and instinctive rage against injustice, ... What she determined on the spot was that her dignity would not allow her to be treated unjustly. #Quote by Diane Watson
Injustice quotes by William Allen White
#5. Peace without justice is tyranny. #Quote by William Allen White
Injustice quotes by Donald Trump
#6. I have embraced crying mothers who have lost their children because our politicians put their personal agendas before the national good. I have no patience for injustice, no tolerance for government incompetence, no sympathy for leaders who fail their citizens. #Quote by Donald Trump
Injustice quotes by Najwa Zebian
#7. Take responsibility.
Just as you can't deny that you can feel love and hate, happiness and sadness, anger and ease of mind, or tiredness and relaxation, you can't deny that you have a fate that, sometimes, you can't control. That doesn't mean that it takes control over you. You can't deny that you have words that need to be spoken. You can't deny that you have a choice. You can't deny the ability that you can say no. You can't deny the ability that you have the freedom to make a decision and defend it. You can't deny injustice when you see it, unfairness when you feel it, oppression when you witness it. Stop blaming the world around you for wronging you. Take responsibility for the nos you could have said but chose not to, the words you could have said but didn't, instead wrapping your mouth with your own hands and remaining silent against what needed to be addressed. Take responsibility for the choices you could have made but restrained yourself from making. #Quote by Najwa Zebian
Injustice quotes by Allan G. Johnson
#8. A student of color in one of my classes, for example, once told me that she noticed my cutting her off during class, something she didn't think I did with white students. I could have weighed in with my professional authority and said it wasn't true, that she was imagining it, that I treated all my students that way, that she was being too sensitive, that I travel all over the country speaking about issues of inequality and injustice, so certainly I was above such things. But what I said to her was that I was truly sorry she'd had that experience. I wasn't aware of doing that, I told her, and the fact that I didn't consciously mean to was beside the point.

To respond in this way, I had to de-center myself from my privilege and make her experience and not mine the point of the conversation. I ended by telling her I would do everything I could to oay attention to this problem in the future to make sure it didn't happen again. #Quote by Allan G. Johnson
Injustice quotes by John Locke
#9. Where there is no property there is no injustice. #Quote by John Locke
Injustice quotes by Charles Koch
#10. Any of the social changes in American history are because people thought there was injustice. We have to show that this corporate welfare and cronyism is unjust - and that it's not only rigging the system so people get wealthy who don't deserve to get wealthy. #Quote by Charles Koch
Injustice quotes by Liam O'Flaherty
#11. It's impossible for a creative artist to be either a Puritan or a Fascist, because both are a negation of the creative urge. The only things a creative artist can be opposed to are ugliness and injustice. #Quote by Liam O'Flaherty
Injustice quotes by Mark Felt
#12. The family believes that my grandfather, Mark Felt Sr., is a great American hero who went well above and beyond the call of duty at much risk to himself to save his country from a horrible injustice. We all sincerely hope the country will see him this way as well. #Quote by Mark Felt
Injustice quotes by Adam Smith
#13. The great source of both the misery and disorders of human life, seems to arise from over-rating the difference between one permanent situation and another. Avarice over-rates the difference between poverty and riches: ambition, that between a private and a public station: vain-glory, that between obscurity and extensive reputation. The person under the influence of any of those extravagant passions, is not only miserable in his actual situation, but is often disposed to disturb the peace of society, in order to arrive at that which he so foolishly admires. The slightest observation, however, might satisfy him, that, in all the ordinary situations of human life, a well-disposed mind may be equally calm, equally cheerful, and equally contented. Some of those situations may, no doubt, deserve to be preferred to others: but none of them can deserve to be pursued with that passionate ardour which drives us to violate the rules either of prudence or of justice; or to corrupt the future tranquillity of our minds, either by shame from the remembrance of our own folly, or by remorse from the horror of our own injustice. #Quote by Adam Smith
Injustice quotes by Shirin Ebadi
#14. If you can't eliminate injustice, at least tell everyone about it. #Quote by Shirin Ebadi
Injustice quotes by Roxane Gay
#15. Internet outrage can seem mindless, but it rarely is. To make that assumption is dismissive. There's something beneath the outrage - an unwillingness to be silent in the face of ignorance, hatred or injustice. Outrage may not always be productive, but it is far better than silence. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Injustice quotes by Tessa Hadley
#16. She imagined the reading she did now as like climbing inside one of those deep old beds she'd seen in a museum, with a sliding door to close behind you: even as she was suffering with a book and could hardly bear it, felt as if her heart would crack with emotion or with outrage at injustice, the act of reading it enclosed and saved her. Sometimes when she moved back out of the book and into her own life, just for a moment she could see her circumstances with a new interest and clarity, as if they were happening to someone else. #Quote by Tessa Hadley
Injustice quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#17. The life of the community, both domestically and internationally, clearly demonstrates that respect for rights, and the guarantees that follow from them, are measures of the common good that serve to evaluate the relationship between justice and injustice, development and poverty, security and conflict. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Injustice quotes by Frederic Bastiat
#18. The statement, "The purpose of the law is to cause justice to reign," is not a rigorously accurate statement. It ought to be stated that the purpose of the law is to prevent injustice from reigning. In fact, it is injustice, instead of justice, that has an existence of its own. Justice is achieved only when injustice is absent. #Quote by Frederic Bastiat
Injustice quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#19. Brand stared in sick disbelief. He'd been sure among all those lads someone would speak, for they were honest enough. Or Hunnan would tell his part in it, for he was a respected master-at-arms. The king or the queen would draw out the truth, for they were wise and righteous. The gods wouldn't allow such an injustice to pass. Someone would do something. Maybe, like him, they were all waiting for someone else to put things right. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Injustice quotes by George Stillman Hillard
#20. One might feel indignant at the injustice which deals out what is called fame with so unequal a hand, were it not for the reflection that men who are competent to add to the intellectual wealth of the world, and enlarge the domain of knowledge, have learned to take popular applause at its true value, and to find in the faithful discharge of honorable duty a satisfaction which is its own reward. #Quote by George Stillman Hillard
Injustice quotes by Albert Camus
#21. The language he used was that of a man who was sick and tired of the world he lived in - though he had much liking for his fellow men - and had resolved, for his part, to have no truck with injustice and compromises with the truth. #Quote by Albert Camus
Injustice quotes by David Rakoff
#22. I had a beautiful childhood and a lovely childhood. I just didn't like being a child. I didn't like the rank injustice of not being listened to. I didn't like the lack of autonomy. #Quote by David Rakoff
Injustice quotes by Horace
#23. Knowledge without education is but armed injustice. #Quote by Horace
Injustice quotes by Julius Nyerere
#24. We spoke and acted as if, given the opportunity for self-government, we would quickly create utopias. Instead injustice, even tyranny, is rampant. #Quote by Julius Nyerere
Injustice quotes by George MacDonald
#25. I should not be surprised," said Mr. Graham, "that the day should come when men will refuse to believe in God simply on the ground of the apparent injustice of things. They would argue that there might be either an omnipotent being who did not care, or a good being who could not help, but that there could not be a being both all good and omnipotent or else he would never have suffered things to be as they are. #Quote by George MacDonald
Injustice quotes by John Grisham
#26. Twenty years on, the books are still fun to write and I've still got lots of stories I want to tell, mainly about social injustice and people chewed up by the system. #Quote by John Grisham
Injustice quotes by Brene Brown
#27. I've learned enough about privilege to know that we're at our most dangerous when we think we've learned everything we need to know about it. That's when you stop paying attention to injustice. And make no mistake, not paying attention because you're not the one getting harassed or fired or pulled over or underpaid is the definition of privilege. #Quote by Brene Brown
Injustice quotes by Hanane Andalucia
#28. Of this violence and injustice that reign in the world, I will say
The bank of justice is bankrupt, even the time #Quote by Hanane Andalucia
Injustice quotes by Hugo Claus
#29. I am a person who is unhappy with things as they stand. We cannot accept the world as it is. Each day we should wake up foaming at the mouth because of the injustice of things. #Quote by Hugo Claus
Injustice quotes by Jo M. Sekimonyo
#30. I spill my gospel and contradictions not to please but to summon contemporaneous probity and to grow solicitude over injustice and antiquated social and political economy constructs. #Quote by Jo M. Sekimonyo
Injustice quotes by Judith Merkle Riley
#31. Why the Romans, Father?" I asked him one afternoon.
"Because, my child, they teach us how to bear suffering in a world of injustice where all faith is dead," he answered. #Quote by Judith Merkle Riley
Injustice quotes by Hannah Shah
#32. I cannot be silent about injustice. And I shall keep doing so because I love life, and I love my fellow humans who inhabit this world. #Quote by Hannah Shah
Injustice quotes by Mike Farrell
#33. What we are seeing here is environmental injustice #Quote by Mike Farrell
Injustice quotes by Rebecca Manley Pippert
#34. We tend to be taken aback by the thought that God could be angry. how can a deity who is perfect and loving ever be angry? ... We take pride in our tolerance of the excesses of others. So what is God's problem? ... But love detests what destroys the beloved. Real love stands against the deception, the lie, the sin that destroys. Nearly a century ago the theologian E.H. Glifford wrote: 'Human love here offers a true analogy: the more a father loves his son, the more he hates in him the drunkard, the liar, the traitor.' ... Anger isn't the opposite of love. Hate is, and the final form of hate is indifference ... How can a good God forgive bad people without compromising himself? Does he just play fast and loose with the facts? 'Oh, never mind ... boys will be boys'. Try telling that to a survivor of the Cambodian 'killing fields' or to someone who lost an entire family in the Holocaust. No. To be truly good one has to be outraged by evil and implacably hostile to injustice. #Quote by Rebecca Manley Pippert
Injustice quotes by John F. Kennedy
#35. Too often in the past, we have thought of the artist as an idler and dilettante and of the lover of arts as somehow sissy and effete. We have done both an injustice. The life of the artist is, in relation to his work, stern and lonely. He has labored hard, often amid deprivation, to perfect his skill. He has turned aside from quick success in order to strip his vision of everything secondary or cheapening. His working life is marked by intense application and intense discipline. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Injustice quotes by Rick Riordan
#36. The people who deserved to die took forever to do so. Those who deserved to live always went too soon. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Injustice quotes by Louie Psihoyos
#37. If you can reach just 10 percent of the population, you can begin to reach a tipping point; that's where true social movements take place - it's a numbers game. And when you reach that number, the truth becomes obvious and empires of injustice crumble and fall. #Quote by Louie Psihoyos
Injustice quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#38. Time and again the need arises for one fierce sword of character to stand face to face with the inhumans and bigots, and announce with a earth-shaking fervor - from this moment on, you are only inches away from extinction - at night look closely to every shadow - and by the light of day know that I am just one step behind you - mark me - one sinister move, one malicious deed and I will swoop down on you like god's thunder - from this moment on, I own your evil heart, and I will crush it, if you hurt the people anymore. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Injustice quotes by Albert Camus
#39. The logic of the rebel is to want to serve justice so
as not to add to the injustice of the human condition, to insist on plain language so as not to increase the
universal falsehood, and to wager, in spite of human misery, for happiness. #Quote by Albert Camus
Injustice quotes by Philip Yancey
#40. Only forgiveness frees us from the injustice of others. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Injustice quotes by Alexis Arguello
#41. Yes, across the board, these gentlemen understand they have the power to make a difference and even educate people to injustices that are occurring in their worlds. #Quote by Alexis Arguello
Injustice quotes by Dwight Macdonald
#42. Pacifism, to me, is primarily a way of actively struggling against injustice and inhumanity; My kind of pacifism may be called "non-violent resistance". #Quote by Dwight Macdonald
Injustice quotes by Tom Bingham
#43. There are doubtless those who would wish to lock up all those who suspected of terrorist and other serious offences and, in the time-honored phrase, throw away the key. But a suspect is by definition a person whom no offence has been proved. Suspicions, even if reasonably entertained, may prove to be misplaced, as a series of tragic miscarriages of justice has demonstrated. Police officers and security officials can be wrong. It is a gross injustice to deprive of his liberty for significant periods a person who has committed no crime and does not intend to do so. No civilized country should willingly tolerate such injustices. #Quote by Tom Bingham
Injustice quotes by Jack Gilbert
#44. A Brief for the Defense

Sorrow everywhere. Slaughter everywhere. If babies
are not starving someplace, they are starving
somewhere else. With flies in their nostrils.
But we enjoy our lives because that's what God wants.
Otherwise the mornings before summer dawn would not
be made so fine. The Bengal tiger would not
be fashioned so miraculously well. The poor women
at the fountain are laughing together between
the suffering they have known and the awfulness
in their future, smiling and laughing while somebody
in the village is very sick. There is laughter
every day in the terrible streets of Calcutta,
and the women laugh in the cages of Bombay.
If we deny our happiness, resist our satisfaction,
we lessen the importance of their deprivation.
We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure,
but not delight. Not enjoyment. We must have
the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless
furnace of this world. To make injustice the only
measure of our attention is to praise the Devil.
If the locomotive of the Lord runs us down,
we should give thanks that the end had magnitude.
We must admit there will be music despite everything.
We stand at the prow again of a small ship
anchored late at night in the tiny port
looking over to the sleeping island: the waterfront
is three shuttered cafés and one naked light burni #Quote by Jack Gilbert
Injustice quotes by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
#45. O you who sold yourself for the sake of something that will cause you suffering and pain, and which will also lose its beauty, you sold the most precious item for the cheapest price, as if you neither knew the value of the goods nor the meanness of the prize. Wait until you come on the Day of Mutual Loss and Gain and you will discover the injustice of this contract. #Quote by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
Injustice quotes by Socrates
#46. So you would rather suffer an injustice than do an injustice? #Quote by Socrates
Injustice quotes by Aaron Hill
#47. First, then, a woman will, or won't, - depend on't; If she will do't, she will; and there's an end on't. But, if she won't, since safe and sound your trust is, Fear is affront: and jealousy injustice. #Quote by Aaron Hill
Injustice quotes by Martin Luther
#48. Without armaments peace cannot be kept; wars are waged not only to repel injustice but also to establish a firm peace. #Quote by Martin Luther
Injustice quotes by Faraaz Kazi
#49. Their hands are tied not by ropes but by the greed of the intermediaries that the system has generated, who eat up the farmer's income while it is on its way into his hands. #Quote by Faraaz Kazi
Injustice quotes by Jules Renard
#50. There is a justice, but we do not always see it. Discreet, smiling, it is there, at one side, a little behind injustice, which makes a big noise. #Quote by Jules Renard
Injustice quotes by Tony Abbott
#51. I mean there are many, many people in all sorts of different countries who don't have a great life, who are subject to injustice. Are we obliged to take all of them who come here? I think the answer is 'Not necessarily.' #Quote by Tony Abbott
Injustice quotes by Anne Perry
#52. You wanted a peaceful, comfortable Christmas, with all reminders of poverty, injustice, or other people's griefs well out of sight, so as not to disturb your pleasure. That isn't what Christmas is about, Wallace. Christmas is about offering hope to all people, not just those like ourselves. Christmas is about everyone: rich or poor, friend or stranger. The moment you exclude anyone, you exclude yourself. #Quote by Anne Perry
Injustice quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#53. The being who patiently endures injustice, and silently bears insults, will soon become unjust, or unable to discern right from wrong. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Injustice quotes by George MacDonald
#54. God is just!' said a carping theologian to me the other day. 'Yes,' I answered, 'and he cannot be pleased that you should call that justice which is injustice, and attribute it to him! #Quote by George MacDonald
Injustice quotes by Kharis Macey
#55. Heal the past and you'll heal the present." Kharis Macey #Quote by Kharis Macey
Injustice quotes by Humphry Primatt
#56. Pain is pain, whether it be inflicted on man or beast; and the creature that suffers it, whether man or beast, being sensible of the misery of it while it lasts, suffers evil and the sufferance of evil, unmerited, unprovoked, where no offence has been given, and no good can possibly be answered by it, but merely to exhibit power or gratify malice, is Cruelty and Injustice in him that occasions is. #Quote by Humphry Primatt
Injustice quotes by Albert Camus
#57. He should rectify in creation everything that can be rectified. And after he has done so, children will still die unjustly even in a perfect society. Even by his greatest effort man can only propose to diminish arithmetically the sufferings of the world. #Quote by Albert Camus
Injustice quotes by Gerry Spence
#58. If logic and reason, the hard, cold products of the mind, can be relied upon to deliver justice or produce the truth, how is it that these brain-heavy judges rarely agree? Five-to-four decisions are the rule, not the exception. Nearly half of the court must be unjust and wrong nearly half of the time. Each decision, whether the majority or minority, exudes logic and reason like the obfuscating ink from a jellyfish, and in language as opaque. The minority could have as easily become the decision of the court. At once we realize that logic, no matter how pretty and neat, that reason, no matter how seemingly profound and deep, does not necessarily produce truth, much less justice. Logic and reason often become but tools used by those in power to deliver their load of injustice to the people. And ultimate truth, if, indeed, it exists, is rarely recognizable in the endless rows of long words that crowd page after page of most judicial regurgitations. #Quote by Gerry Spence
Injustice quotes by Carl T. Rowan
#59. It is often easier to become outraged by injustice half a world away than by oppression and discrimination half a block from home. #Quote by Carl T. Rowan
Injustice quotes by Steven Erikson
#60. ...and justice itself became a commodity, mutable in imbalance. Truth was lost, a chimera reshaped to match agenda, prejudices, thus cosigning the entire political process to a mummer's charade of false indignation, hypocritical posturing and a perverse contempt for the commonry. Once subsumed, ideals and the honor created by their avowal can never be regained, except by outright, unconstrained rejection, invariably instigated by the commonry, at the juncture of one particular moment of such brazen injustice that revolution becomes the only reasonable response. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Injustice quotes by H.G.Wells
#61. The Islamic teachings have left great traditions for equitable and gentle dealings and behavior, and inspire people with nobility and tolerance. These are human teachings of the highest order and at the same time practicable. These teachings brought into existence a society in which hard-heartedness and collective oppression and injustice were the least as compared with all other societies preceding it ... Islam is replete with gentleness, courtesy, and fraternity. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Injustice quotes by Carter G. Woodson
#62. Why not exploit, enslave, or exterminate a class that everybody is taught to regard as inferior? #Quote by Carter G. Woodson
Injustice quotes by Sergey Lavrov
#63. It's time to realize that one cannot combat one injustice by invoking and using another injustice #Quote by Sergey Lavrov
Injustice quotes by E.L. Konigsburg
#64. She was bored with simply being straight-A's Claudia Kincaid. She was tired of arguing about whose turn it was to choose the Sunday night seven-thirty television show, of injustice, and of the monotony of everything. #Quote by E.L. Konigsburg
Injustice quotes by Murray Bookchin
#65. What compels me to fight this society is, of course, outrage over injustice, a love of freedom, and a feeling of responsibility for perpetuating and enlarging the human spirit - its beauty, creativity, and latent capacity to improve the world. I do not care to come to terms with an irrational society that corrodes all that is valuable in humanity, that eats away at all that is beautiful and noble in the human experience. #Quote by Murray Bookchin
Injustice quotes by B. H. Roberts
#66. Missouri in her treatment of the Latter-day Saints during the years 1833-9, sowed the wind; in the disastrous events which overtook her during the years 1855-65, she reaped the whirlwind. Let us hope that in those events Justice was fully vindicated so far as the state of Missouri is concerned; and that the lessons of her sad experience may not be lost to the world. May the awful and visible retribution visited upon Missouri teach all states and nations that when they feel power they must not forget Justice; may it teach all peoples that states and nations in their corporate capacity are such entities as may be held accountable before God and the world for their actions; that righteousness exalteth a nation, while injustice is a reproach to any people. #Quote by B. H. Roberts
Injustice quotes by Bertrand Russell
#67. In the part of this universe that we know there is great injustice, and often the good suffer, and often the wicked prosper, and one hardly knows which of those is the more annoying. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Injustice quotes by Roger L'Estrange
#68. There are ways of Deceiving the Eyes, as well as of Blinding them; so that the Cause of the Innocent must be remitted at last to that Great and Final Decision, where there is no longer any Place for Passion, Partiality, Corruption, or Error. But as to the Business of This World, when the Cocks and the Lambs lie at the Mercy of the Cats and Wolves, they must never expect better Quarter; especially where the Hearts Blood of the One, is the Nourishment and Entertainment of the Other. #Quote by Roger L'Estrange
Injustice quotes by John William Draper
#69. I have to deplore the systematic manner in which the literature of Europe has continued to put out of sight our obligations to the Muhammadans. Surely they cannot be much longer hidden. Injustice founded on religious rancour and national conceit cannot be perpetuated forever. The Arab has left his intellectual impress on Europe. He has indelibly written it on the heavens as any one may see who reads the names of the stars on a common celestial globe. #Quote by John William Draper
Injustice quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#70. ...when the createdness of the other person is not viewed as necessary as our own - then there is no reason (beyond expediency) to treat the other as a person. All injustice and cruelty come, basically, from this distorted view of reality. #Quote by Sydney J. Harris
Injustice quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#71. Thy designs are a bottomless pit. How can I descend into this pit to examine it? Thou lookest thousands of years into the future and then Thou judgest. What today seems an injustice to man's minute brain becomes, thousands of years hence, the mother of man's salvation. If what today we term injustice did not exist, perhaps true justice would never come to mankind. #Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis
Injustice quotes by Bertrand Russell
#72. The world is full of injustice, and those who profit by injustice are in a position to administer rewards and punishments. The rewards go to those who invent ingenious justifications for inequality, the punishments to those who try to remedy it. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Injustice quotes by Epicurus
#73. There is no such thing as justice or injustice among those beasts that cannot make agreements not to injure or be injured. This is also true of those tribes that are unable or unwilling to make agreements not to injure or be injured. #Quote by Epicurus
Injustice quotes by Nick Clegg
#74. For far too long the world's poorest people have seen no benefit from the vast natural resources in their own backyards. It is time to end the injustice where ordinary people are silent witnesses, left to suffer without basic services, as the profits from their countries' assets are hidden and plundered by corrupt regimes. #Quote by Nick Clegg
Injustice quotes by Paulo Freire
#75. One of the basic questions that we need to look at is how to convert merely rebellious attitudes into revolutionary ones in the process of the radical transformation of society. Merely rebellious attitudes or actions are insufficient, though they are an indispensable response to legitimate anger. It is necessary to go beyond rebellious attitudes to a more radically critical and revolutionary position, which is in fact a position not simply of denouncing injustice but of announcing a new utopia. Transformation of the world implies a dialectic between the two actions: denouncing the process of dehumanization and announcing the dream of a new society. On the basis of this knowledge, namely, "to change things is difficult but possible," we can plan our political-pedagogical strategy. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Injustice quotes by Manisha Sinha
#76. In trying to address the systemic problem of racial injustice, we would do well to look at abolitionism, because here is a movement of radicals who did manage to effect political change. Despite things that radical movements always face, differences and divisions, they were able to actually galvanize the movement and translate it into a political agenda. #Quote by Manisha Sinha
Injustice quotes by Charles Peguy
#77. It is better to have a war for justice than peace in injustice. #Quote by Charles Peguy
Injustice quotes by Meredith Duran
#78. Villainy was not simply the red raging glory of inflicting well-deserved pain; it was also the curdling knowledge of having inflicted injustice. A villain simply did not care. Only the victims did. #Quote by Meredith Duran
Injustice quotes by Leslie Marmon Silko
#79. The American public has difficulty believing ... [that] injustice continues to be inflicted upon Indian people because Americans assume that the sympathy and tolerance they feel toward Indians is somehow 'felt' or transferred to the government policy that deals with Indians. This is not the case. #Quote by Leslie Marmon Silko
Injustice quotes by Eugene O'Neill
#80. I mean supposing we - the self-satisfied, successful members of society - are responsible for the injustice visited upon the heads of our less fortunate "brothers-in­Christ" because of our shameful indifference to it. We see misery all around us and we do not care. We do nothing to prevent it. Are we not then, in part at least, responsible for it? Have you ever thought of that? #Quote by Eugene O'Neill
Injustice quotes by Rick Yancey
#81. None of it had prepared him, however, for this naked confrontation with gross injustice, this horrific reminder that despite all the honors with which we shower ourselves, we are, ultimately, fodder, mere meat for the inferior, soulless things of which I dreamt the night before, no less than us the Creator's children." - The Monstrumologist #Quote by Rick Yancey
Injustice quotes by Michelle Rhee
#82. The reality in Washington D.C. is if you live in Tenleytown versus if you live in Anacostia, you get two wildly different educational experiences. It's the biggest social injustice imaginable. What we are allowing to happen in this day and age, we are still allowing the color of a child's skin and the Zip code they live in to dictate their educational outcome, and therefore their life outcome. We are robbing them every single day of their futures. And everybody in this country should be infuriated by that. #Quote by Michelle Rhee
Injustice quotes by Baron De Montesquieu
#83. An injustice committed against anyone is a threat to everyone. #Quote by Baron De Montesquieu
Injustice quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#84. She enjoyed her own pain by this egoism of suffering, if I may so express it. This aggravation of suffering and this rebelling in it I could understand; it is the enjoyment of man, of the insulted and injured, oppressed by destiny, and smarting under the sense of its injustice. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Injustice quotes by Nancy Schaefer
#85. I have witnessed such injustice and harm brought to these families that I am not sure if I even believe reform of the system is possible! The system cannot be trusted. It does not serve the people. It obliterates families and children simply because it has the power to do so. #Quote by Nancy Schaefer
Injustice quotes by Leonard Peltier
#86. Our people still need support. Support us through writing your government officials. We are still on the verge of extinction, with continued injustices brought against us. #Quote by Leonard Peltier
Injustice quotes by Joseph Frank
#87. Years later, when Dostoevsky was reading the book of Job once again, he wrote his wife that it put him into such a state of "unhealthy rapture" that he almost cried. "It's a strange thing, Anya, this books is one of the first in my life which made an impression on me; I was then still almost a child." There is an allusion to this revelatory experience of the young boy in The Brothers Karamazov, where Zosima recalls being struck by a reading of the book of Job at the age of eight and feeling that "for the first time in my life I consciously received the seed of God's word in my heart" (9:287). This seed was one day to flower into the magnificent growth of Ivan Karamazov's passionate protest against God's injustice and the Legend of the Grand Inquisitor, but it also grew into Alyosha's submission to the awesomeness of the infinite before which Job too had once bowed his head, and into Zosima's teaching of the necessity for an ultimate faith in the goodness of God's mysterious wisdom. It is Dostoevsky's genius as a writer to have been able to feel (and to express) both these extremes of rejection and acceptance. While the tension of this polarity may have developed out of the ambivalence of Dostoevsky's psychodynamic relationship with his father, what is important is to see how early it was transposed and projected into the religious symbolism of the eternal problem of theodicy. #Quote by Joseph Frank
Injustice quotes by Desmond Tutu
#88. As much as the world has an instinct for evil and is a breeding ground for genocide, holocaust, slavery, racism, war, oppression, and injustice, the world has an even greateer instinct for goodness, rebirth, mercy, beauty, truth, freedom and love. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Injustice quotes by H.L. Mencken
#89. One of the things that makes a Negro unpleasant to white folk is the fact that he suffers from their injustice. He is thus a standing rebuke to them. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Injustice quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#90. I write so others might contemplate things that are out of the ordinary. I write to make people feel - to cause laughter and tears and anger at injustice. I write so the world will imagine and wonder at crazy, incredible truths. I write to have a tiny bit of influence on a universal conscience. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Injustice quotes by Ron Brackin
#91. One difference between the Bible and the Constitution is that we can still talk to the author of the Bible to discover original intent. #Quote by Ron Brackin
Injustice quotes by William Sloane Coffin
#92. People who fear disorder more than injustice will only produce more of both. #Quote by William Sloane Coffin
Injustice quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#93. The world needs madness, a madness for justice, a madness for harmony, a madness for equality, a madness for humanitarian glory. If everyone had the madness for doing good, there wouldn't be any misery in the world. So, be mad, be furious, be rebellious towards every bit of misery, inequality and injustice in the world. Remember, every injustice anywhere in the world is your business, every misery anywhere in the world is your business, every segregation anywhere in the world is your business. Human condition anywhere in the world is your business. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Injustice quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#94. When you are first hurt, your anger is fresh and bright and clean. It is hot and eager to defeat injustice. It makes you sharp and keen and quick. so that you can outrace your hurt and leave it lying on some faraway ground where it happened. This is why children cry so bitterly and scream until their faces go read at the smallest hunger or loneliness. They must get terribly, piercingly angry so that they can get out in front of all the little hurts of being new, or else they will never get free of them. But anger can go off like milk in the icebox. It can go hard and rotting and turn everything around it rotting too. By the time you have made your peace, your anger has reeked up your whole heart, it's so gunked up with fuming. That's why you must wash your anger every now and again, or else you can't even move an inch. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Injustice quotes by Hajime Isayama
#95. I know that people like you exist. I respect that. Going against the flow, it takes a lot of courage. Maybe people who can do it are just stupid, but what I'm sure of is that people like that are rare. So you can't call them common. You can't call them normal either. People like you get called special. So what should you call people like us then? People who put their own interests ahead of others? People who go along with it when they see injustice? What do you call them? Worthless or evil? I do think we're worthless and we're definitely evil, but doesn't that just make us regular people? So even if I'm the kind of weak person who gets swept along with the flow, I just want you to think of me as human, that's all. #Quote by Hajime Isayama
Injustice quotes by Emma Goldman
#96. Revolution that divests itself of ethical values thereby lays the foundation of injustice, deceit, and oppression for the future society. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Injustice quotes by John Stuart Mill
#97. All persons are deemed to have a right to equality of treatment, except when some recognized social expediency requires the reverse. And hence all social inequalities which have ceased to be considered expedient assume the character, not of simple inexpediency, but of injustice, and appear so tyrannical that people are apt to wonder how they ever could have been tolerated - forgetful that they themselves, perhaps, tolerate other inequalities under an equally mistaken notion of expediency, the correction of which would make that which they approve seem quite as monstrous as what they have at last learned to condemn. The entire history of social improvement has been a series of transitions by which one custom or institution after another, from being a supposed primary necessity of social existence, has passed into the rank of a universally stigmatized injustice and tyranny. So it has been with the distinctions of slaves and freemen, nobles and serfs, patricians and plebians; and so it will be, and in part already is, with the aristocracies of color, race, and sex. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Injustice quotes by Charles Peguy
#98. We said that a single injustice, a single crime, a single illegality, particularly if it is officially recorded, confirmed, a single wrong to humanity, a single wrong to justice and to right, particularly if it is universally, legally, nationally, commodiously accepted, that a single crime shatters and is sufficient to shatter the whole social pact, the whole social contract, that a single legal crime, a single dishonorable act will bring about the loss of ones honor, the dishonor of a whole people. It is a touch of gangrene that corrupts the entire body. #Quote by Charles Peguy
Injustice quotes by Desmond Tutu
#99. Some people are able to use Bible as a means of opposing injustice, whereas others are able to find justification. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Injustice quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#100. The facts of my native world, I came to understand that my country was a galaxy, and this galaxy stretched from the pandemonium of West Baltimore to the happy hunting grounds of Mr. Belvedere. I obsessed over the distance between that other sector of space and my own. I knew that my portion of the American galaxy, where bodies were enslaved by a tenacious gravity, was black and that the other, liberated portion was not. I knew that some inscrutable energy preserved the breach. I felt, but did not yet understand, the relation between that other world and me. And I felt in this a cosmic injustice, a profound cruelty, which infused an abiding, irrepressible desire to unshackle my body and achieve the velocity of escape. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Injustice quotes by Alan Brennert
#101. *And to keep her immune system strong she followed Dr. Goodhue's advice to abstain from alcohol, get plenty of fresh air and exercise, and consume a nourishing diet, low in salt. Page 144
"Fear is good. In the right degree it prevents us from making fools of ourselves. But in the wrong measure it prevents us from fully living. Fear is our boon companion but never our master.". Page 204
"I've come to believe that how we choose to live with pain, or injustice, or death ... Is the true measure of the Divine within us." ... "I used to wonder, why did God give children leprosy? Now I believe: God doesn't give anyone leprosy. He gives us, if we choose to use it, the spirit to live with leprosy, and with the imminence of death. Because it is in our own mortality that we are most Divine.". Page 307

Injustice quotes by Ben Cohen
#102. If you're aware of injustice, you can either ignore it, say there is nothing you can do about it, complain about it and not do anything, or put your energies into doing something about it. #Quote by Ben Cohen
Injustice quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#103. Nature has with a Motherly Tenderness observed this, that the Action she has enjoyned us for our Necessity should be also pleasant to us, and invites us to them, not only by Reason, but also by Appetite: and 'tis Injustice to infringe her Laws. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Injustice quotes by Tom Taylor
#104. Okay, that's enough. Everyone. Let's just calm down. We don't want to look bad in front of the psychopaths. #Quote by Tom Taylor
Injustice quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#105. Silence in the face of injustice, is injustice in action. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Injustice quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#106. The human voice is still the most paramount vessel or weapon to use, to uphold justice and to protest against injustice. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Injustice quotes by Euripides
#107. In my opinion, the unjust man whose tongue is full of glozing rhetoric, merits the heaviest punishment; vaunting that he can with his tongue gloze over injustice, he dares to act wickedly, yet he is not over-wise. #Quote by Euripides
Injustice quotes by Martin O'Malley
#108. I was motivated to go into public life because of the great chasm that exists between justice and injustice in our country. Nowhere is that divide greater than in America's cities. #Quote by Martin O'Malley
Injustice quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#109. Our enemies ... seem always with us. The greater our hatred the more persistent the memory of them so that a truly terrible enemy becomes deathless. So that the man who has done you great injury or injustice makes himself a guest in your house forever. Perhaps only forgiveness can dislodge him. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Injustice quotes by Tim Wise
#110. After all, acknowledging unfairness then calls decent people forth to correct those injustices. And since most persons are at their core, decent folks, the need to ignore evidence of injustice is powerful: To do otherwise would force whites to either push for change (which they would perceive as against their interests) or live consciously as hypocrites who speak of freedom and opportunity but perpetuate a system of inequality. #Quote by Tim Wise
Injustice quotes by Thomas Mann
#111. Inborn in almost every artistic nature is a luxuriant, treacherous bias in favor of the injustice that creates beauty, a tendency to sympathize with aristocratic preference and pay it homage. A #Quote by Thomas Mann
Injustice quotes by Ed Miliband
#112. While there's capitalism, there'll be socialism, because there is always a response to injustice. #Quote by Ed Miliband
Injustice quotes by F. Willis Johnson
#113. Where there are people, there is injustice, and that is not God's design. It may not be our fault, but it is our fight. Let us do our part by holding up our corners. #Quote by F. Willis Johnson
Injustice quotes by Aristophanes
#114. Look at the orators in our republics; as long as they are poor, both state and people can only praise their uprightness; but once they are fattened on the public funds, they conceive a hatred for justice, plan intrigues against the people and attack the democracy. #Quote by Aristophanes
Injustice quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#115. Poverty often puts some people below the law. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Injustice quotes by John Sandford
#116. MARLYS WAS A WOMAN of ordinary appearance, if seen in a supermarket or a library, dressed in homemade or Walmart dresses or slacks, a little too heavy, but fighting it, white-haired, ruddy-faced. In her heart, though, she housed a rage that knew no bounds. The rage fully possessed her at times, and she might be seen sitting in her truck at a stoplight, pounding the steering wheel with the palms of her hands, or walking through the noodle aisle at the supermarket with a teeth-baring snarl. She had frightened strangers, who might look at her and catch the flames of rage, quickly extinguished when Marlys realized she was being watched. The rage was social and political and occasionally personal, based on her hatred of obvious injustice, the crushing of the small and helpless by the steel wheels of American plutocracy. #Quote by John Sandford
Injustice quotes by Lady Gaga
#117. When the whole world has their eyes on you, if you say something that doesn't truly come from your spirit and your soul, or if you wear something that doesn't come from your spirit and your soul, it's an injustice to your position. And so, I'm really myself every single day and I do it because I know my fans would want me to. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Injustice quotes by Alisa Harris
#118. [W]hen injustice, robbery, and inequity are not just individual but institutional, it's time to take a political stand. #Quote by Alisa Harris
Injustice quotes by Joyce Cary
#119. A perpetually new and lively world, but a dangerous one, full of tragedy and injustice. #Quote by Joyce Cary
Injustice quotes by Sarah Bessey
#120. Whether it's racism, patriarchy, warmongering, greed, or child trafficking, it's counter to God's Kingdom. But the people caught in those systems are rarely the enemies; often they are just as caught, as longing for a rescue as the rest of us. We don't battle against flesh and blood, not really, but against the powers and principalities that hold us all captive. #Quote by Sarah Bessey
Injustice quotes by Tim Wise
#121. Tradition is, after all, what we make it. The definition of the term is simply this: "a story, belief, custom, or proverb handed down from generation to generation." There is nothing about the word that suggests tradition must be oppressive, or that it must necessarily serve to uphold the status quo. It is simply the narrative we tell ourselves, and as such, could just as easily involve resistance to oppression or injustice, as the perpetuation of the same. But if we aren't clear in articulating the alternative tradition, we can hardly be surprised when persons don't choose the direction in which it points, having never been appraised of its existence. #Quote by Tim Wise
Injustice quotes by Lawrence Stone
#122. Sixteenth-century litigation combined the qualities of tedium, hardship, brutality, and injustice that tested character and endurance, with the element of pure chance that appealed to the gambler, the fear of defeat and ruin, and the hope of victory and humiliation of the enemy. It had everything that war can offer except the delights of shedding blood. #Quote by Lawrence Stone
Injustice quotes by Victor Hugo
#123. You who are Prejudice, Abuse, Ignominy, Oppression, Iniquity, Despotism, Injustice, Fanaticism, beware of the wide-eyed urchin. He will grow up. #Quote by Victor Hugo

Injustice quotes by Howard Zinn
#125. Furthermore, some of the best people in the country were connected with the Communist movement in some way, heroes and heroines one could admire. There was Paul Robeson, the fabulous singer-actor-athlete whose magnificent voice could fill Madison Square Garden, crying out against racial injustice, against fascism. And literary figures (weren't Theodore Dreiser and W. E. B. DuBois Communists?), #Quote by Howard Zinn
Injustice quotes by Raphael Zernoff
#126. When the heart sees injustice it turns to the perspective of oneness.
It feels no need to produce a big speech to overcome its enemies.
In silence it finds its peace. #Quote by Raphael Zernoff
Injustice quotes by Søren Kierkegaard
#127. I have never been joyful, and yet it has always seemed as if joy were my constant companion, as if the buoyant jinn of joy danced around me, invisible to others but not to me, whose eyes shone with delight. Then when I walk past people, happy-go-lucky as a god, and they envy me because of my good fortune, I laugh, for I despise people, and I take my revenge. I have never wished to do anyone an injustice, but I have always made it appear as if anyone who came close to me would be wronged and injured. Then when I hear others praised for their faithfulness, their integrity, I laugh, for I despise people, and I take my revenge. My heart has never been hardened toward anyone, but I have always made it appear, especially when I was touched most deeply, as if my heart were closed and alien to every feeling. Then when I hear others lauded for their good hearts, see them loved for their deep, rich feelings, then I laugh, for I despise people and take my revenge. When I see myself cursed, abhorred, hated for my coldness and heartlessness, then I laugh, then my rage is satisfied. The point is that if the good people could make me be actually in the wrong, make me actually do an injustice-well, then I would have lost. #Quote by Søren Kierkegaard

Injustice quotes by Aristotle.
#129. To let them share in the highest offices is to take a risk; inevitably, their unjust standards will cause them to commit injustice, and their lack of judgement will lead them into error. On the other hand there is a risk in not giving them a share, and in their non participation, for when there are many who have no property and no honours they inevitably constitute a huge hostile element in the state. But it can still remain open to them to participate in deliberating and judging. #Quote by Aristotle.
Injustice quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#130. And yet the feeling of injustice itself turned out to be strangely physical. Even realer, in a way, than a her hurting, smelling, sweating body. Injustice had a shape, an a weight, and a temperature, and a texture, and a very bad taste. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Injustice quotes by Tadeusz Borowski
#131. There can be no beauty if it is paid for by human injustice, nor truth that passes over injustice in silence, nor moral virtue that condones it. #Quote by Tadeusz Borowski
Injustice quotes by Beatrice Ekwa Ekoko
#132. I know that in the United States we consume between 25 and 30 percent of the world's resources, whereas we comprise less than 5 percent of the world's population. That type of injustice has to be backed up by brute force. #Quote by Beatrice Ekwa Ekoko
Injustice quotes by Anne Ancelin Schutzenburger
#133. We continue the chain of generations and, knowingly or not, willingly or unwillingly, we pay debts of the past: as long as we have not cleared the slate, an "invisible loyalty" impels us to repeat and repeat a moment of incredible joy or unbearable sorrow, an injustice or a tragic death. Or its echo. #Quote by Anne Ancelin Schutzenburger
Injustice quotes by William Shakespeare
#134. O all you host of heaven! O earth! What else?
And shall I couple Hell? #Quote by William Shakespeare
Injustice quotes by Hillary Clinton
#135. Equal pay is not yet equal. A woman makes 77 cents on a dollar and women of color make 67 cents ... We feel so passionately about this because we are not only running for office, but we each, in our own way, have lived it. We have seen it. We have understood the pain and the injustice that has come because of race, because of gender. And it's imperative that ... we make it very clear that each of us will address these issues. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Injustice quotes by Richard Paul Evans
#136. My Dear Son,
I am so very proud of you. Now, as you embark on a new journey, I'd like to share this one piece of advice. Always, always remember that - adversity is not a detour. It is part of the path.

You will encounter obstacles. You will make mistakes. Be grateful for both. Your obstacles and mistakes will be your greatest teachers. And the only way to not make mistakes in this life is to do nothing, which is the biggest mistake of all.

Your challenges, if you let them, will become your greatest allies. Mountains can crush or raise you, depending on which side of the mountain you choose to stand on. All history bears out that the great, those who have changed the world, have all suffered great challenges. And, more times than not it's precisely those challenges that, in God's time, lead to triumph.

Abhor victimhood. Denounce entitlement. Neither are gifts, rather cages to damn the soul. Everyone who has walked this earth is a victim of injustice. Everyone.

Most of all, do not be too quick to denounce your sufferings. The difficult road you are called to walk may, in fact be your only path to success. #Quote by Richard Paul Evans
Injustice quotes by Plato
#137. Then I will repeat the question which I asked before, in order that our examination of the relative nature of justice and injustice may be carried on regularly. A statement was made that injustice is stronger and more powerful than justice, but now justice, having been identified with wisdom and virtue, is easily shown to be stronger than injustice, if injustice is ignorance; this can no longer be questioned by any one. But I want to view the matter, Thrasymachus, in a different way: You would not deny that a state may be unjust and may be unjustly attempting to enslave other states, or may have already enslaved them, and may be holding many of them in subjection? True, #Quote by Plato
Injustice quotes by Sigmund Freud
#138. It is a great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a crime, and cruelty too #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Injustice quotes by Tony Judt
#139. The only thing worse than too much government is too little: in failed states, people suffer at least as much violence and injustice as under authoritarian rule, and in addition their trains do not run on time. #Quote by Tony Judt
Injustice quotes by Desmond Tutu
#140. It is for real that injustice and oppression will not have the last word. There was a time when Hitler looked like he was going to vanquish all of Europe, and where is he now? #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Injustice quotes by Oswald Chambers
#141. To live a distant, withdrawn, and secluded life is diametrically opposed to spirituality as Jesus Christ taught it. The true test of our spirituality occurs when we come up against injustice, degradation, ingratitude, and turmoil, all of which have the tendency to make us spiritually lazy. While being tested, we want to use prayer and Bible reading for the purpose of finding a quiet retreat. We use God only for the sake of getting peace and joy. We seek only our enjoyment of Jesus Christ, not a true realization of Him. This is the first step in the wrong direction. All these things we are seeking are simply effects, and yet we try to make them causes. #Quote by Oswald Chambers
Injustice quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#142. We are fortified by exemplary lives, especially those who have earned the right to be respected by their character, sacrifice, patience, and ability to press on in spite of hardship, injustice, pain, and failure. Our heroes do not have to be perfect. They must, however be courageous, authentic, clear-minded, and determined to endure no matter the sacrifice or cost. We need heroes of integrity and consistency, admirable men and women we can admire, not because they exemplify a quick burst of bravery, but because they represent the stuff of greatness and stay at it to the end. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Injustice quotes by Bryan Stevenson
#143. It is about how easily we condemn people in this country and the injustice we create when we allow fear, anger, and distance to shape the way we treat the most vulnerable among us. #Quote by Bryan Stevenson
Injustice quotes by Christian Bale
#144. I seek ... the means to fight injustice. To turn fear against those who prey on the fearful. #Quote by Christian Bale

Injustice quotes by The Prophet Of Life
#148. The world can seem very chaotic these days. Humankind is constantly changing, and evolving. Advances in science have made it possible to travel thousands of miles in a matter of hours. We can keep in touch with people we care about and even with the world at large with the push of a button. Many of the diseases that plagued humankind for centuries have been wiped out. Yet there is still poverty. There is still famine. There is still disease. There is still war. There is still injustice. #Quote by The Prophet Of Life
Injustice quotes by Michael Moorcock
#149. Therefore it seemed a dreadful injustice that these wise races should perish at the hands of creatures who were still little more than animals. It was as if vultures feasted on and squabbled over the paralyzed body of the youthful poet who could only stare at them with puzzled eyes as they slowly robbed him of an exquisite existence they would never appreciate, never know they were taking. #Quote by Michael Moorcock
Injustice quotes by Martha Rivera-Garrido
#150. Don't fall in love with a woman who reads, a woman who feels too much, a woman who writes...
Don't fall in love with an educated, magical, delusional, crazy woman. Don't fall in love with a woman who thinks, who knows what she knows and also knows how to fly; a woman sure of herself.
Don't fall in love with a woman who laughs or cries making love, knows how to turn her spirit into flesh; let alone one that loves poetry (these are the most dangerous), or spends half an hour contemplating a painting and isn't able to live without music.
Don't fall in love with a woman who is interested in politics and is rebellious and feel a huge horror from injustice. One who does not like to watch television at all. Or a woman who is beautiful no matter the features of her face or her body.
Don't fall in love with a woman who is intense, entertaining, lucid and irreverent. Don't wish to fall in love with a woman like that. Because when you fall in love with a woman like that, whether she stays with you or not, whether she loves you or not, from a woman like that, you never come back. #Quote by Martha Rivera-Garrido
Injustice quotes by Miguel Ruiz
#151. In the dream of the planet it is normal for humans to suffer, to live in fear, and to create emotional dramas. The outside dream is not a pleasant dream; it is a dream of violence, a dream of fear, a dream of war, a dream of injustice. The personal dream of humans will vary, but globally it is mostly a nightmare. If we look at human society we see a place so difficult to live in because it is ruled by fear. Throughout the world we see human suffering, anger, revenge, addictions, violence in the street, and tremendous injustice. It may exist at different levels in different countries around the world, but fear is controlling the outside dream. #Quote by Miguel Ruiz
Injustice quotes by Helen Clark
#152. If the market is left to sort matters out, social injustice will be heightened and suffering in the community will grow with the neglect the market fosters. #Quote by Helen Clark

Injustice quotes by David R. Smock
#154. One of the biggest challenges for people involved in interfaith dialogue is to break down the stereotypes of the "other" that exist within their own religious traditions and groups. Religious groups need to first acknowledge and confess their own role in fostering and contributing to injustice and conflict. (by Cilliers, Ch. 3, p. 49) #Quote by David R. Smock
Injustice quotes by Hope Edelman

Injustice quotes by Joyce Banda

Injustice quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#157. The mere fact that we live in the United States means that we are caught in a network of inescapable mutuality. Therefore, no American can afford to be apathetic about the problem of racial justice. It is a problem that meets every man at his front door. The racial problem will be solved in America to the degree that every American considers himself personally confronted with it. Whether one lives in the heart of the Deep South or on the periphery of the North, the problem of injustice is his problem; it is his problem because it is America's problem. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Injustice quotes by Aubrey De Vere
#158. Wrong and injustice to the poor he resented as an injury to God. His vehement love for the poor is illustrated by his "Epistle to Coroticus," reproaching him with his cruelty, as well as by his denunciations of slavery, which piracy had introduced into parts of Ireland. #Quote by Aubrey De Vere
Injustice quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#159. At the root of every form of ungodliness, injustice, nepotism, selfishness, every rivalry and competitive jealousy, is the monster called greed. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Injustice quotes by Sallust
#160. A good man would prefer to be defeated than to defeat injustice by evil means. #Quote by Sallust
Injustice quotes by Benyamin
#161. I didn't realize then that women like her walked on roads of embers. Their life was an endless wait for the husband kidnapped by the police, the missing brother, the son who had been imprisoned. Women who could not sleep because of the fire in their chest. Ali's mother was one of those women, battered by fate. #Quote by Benyamin
Injustice quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#162. I wish my countrymen to consider, that whatever the human law may be, neither an individual nor a nation can ever commit the least act of injustice against the obscurest individual, without having to pay the penalty for it. A government which deliberately enacts injustice, and persists in it, will at length ever become the laughing-stock of the world. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Injustice quotes by Molly Ivins
#163. If you ever get to the place where injustice doesn't bother you, you're dead. #Quote by Molly Ivins
Injustice quotes by Christine De Pizan
#164. [W]hen someone finds himself quite unjustly attacked and hated on all sides, there is no need for such a person to feel dismayed by misfortune. See how Fortune, who has harmed many a one, is so inconstant, for God, Who opposes all wrong deeds, raises up those in whom hope dwells. #Quote by Christine De Pizan
Injustice quotes by John Cheever
#165. Seated at the table, high in her firmament of gin, she looked critically at her brother and his wife, remembering some real or imagined injustice of her youth, for with any proximity the constellations of some families generate among themselves an asperity that nothing can sweeten. #Quote by John Cheever
Injustice quotes by Joyce Meyer
#166. Is all anger sin? No, but some of it is. Even God Himself has righteous anger against sin, injustice, rebellion and pettiness. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Injustice quotes by John Hartung
#167. There is a difference between what is wrong and what is evil. Evil is committed when clarity is taken away from what is clearly wrong, allowing wrong to be seen as less wrong, excusable, right, or an obligatory commandment of the Lord God Almighty.
Evil is bad sold as good, wrong sold as right, injustice sold as justice. Like the coat of a virus, a thin veil of right can disguise enormous wrong and confer an ability to infect others. #Quote by John Hartung
Injustice quotes by Albert Camus
#168. Nihilistic passion, adding to
falsehood and injustice, destroys in its fury its original demands and thus deprives rebellion of its most
cogent reasons. It kills in the fond conviction that this world is dedicated to death. The consequence of
rebellion, on the contrary, is to refuse to legitimize murder because rebellion, in principle, is a protest
against death. #Quote by Albert Camus
Injustice quotes by Jalal Mansur Nuriddin
#169. Night falls
And the sun rises,
And I dig niggers, niggers, niggers of all shades and sizes
And the sun, the sun it plays on my eyes
And I hear the hungry cries
Of black children
Their stomachs turned inside out
Their minds full of fear and doubt
Being told lies
Being watched by spies
With loophole-proof alibis
While another nigger, nigger, nigger in Vietnam dies
But the sun still rises and the night still falls
And junkies still O.D. in ghetto halls
And Miles he still blows
And the oppression still grows
And where it stops, nobody knows
And black people cry out in vain
Against injustice and pain
To one whose mind is insane...

from "Surprises" by the Last Poets #Quote by Jalal Mansur Nuriddin
Injustice quotes by Sylvester McCoy
#170. There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do. #Quote by Sylvester McCoy
Injustice quotes by Aisha Mirza
#171. Power and control are more dangerous than any weapons. #Quote by Aisha Mirza
Injustice quotes by Alice Minium
#172. In addition, the distortion of actual crime statistics vs. media coverage, shows that news outlets portray black Americans being depicted as suspects or criminals at a rate that exceeds actual arrest statistics for those same crimes by a whopping 24 percentage points- a disparity which reveals a horrific implicit bias in reporting. #Quote by Alice Minium
Injustice quotes by Moliere
#173. Deceived on all sides, overwhelmed with injustice, I will fly from an abyss where vice is triumphant, and seek out some small secluded nook on earth, where on may enjoy the freedom of being an honest man. #Quote by Moliere
Injustice quotes by Max Lucado
#174. I choose love. No occasion justifies hatred; no injustice warrants bitterness, I choose love. Today I will love God and what God loves. #Quote by Max Lucado
Injustice quotes by Ibn Khaldun
#175. Government is an institution which prevents injustice other than such as it commits itself. #Quote by Ibn Khaldun
Injustice quotes by Fazlur Rahman
#176. Philologists assure us that zulm in Arabic originally meant "to put something out of its proper place," so that all wrong of any kind is injustice, i.e., an injustice against the agent himself) is, therefore, a very common term in the Qur'ān, with its clear idea that all injustice is basically reflexive. #Quote by Fazlur Rahman
Injustice quotes by Cat Stevens
#177. It is part of my faith as a Muslim to try to help those who are suffering from poverty or economic or political injustice. #Quote by Cat Stevens
Injustice quotes by Charles Darwin
#178. If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Injustice quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#179. Time itself is neutral; it can be used either destructively or constructively. More and more I feel that the people of ill will have used time much more effectively than have the people of good will. We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people. Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability; it comes through the tireless efforts of men willing to be co-workers with God, and without this hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right. Now is the time to make real the promise of democracy and transform our pending national elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood. Now is the time to lift our national policy from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of human dignity. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Injustice quotes by Birch Bayh
#180. I had the good fortune to be able to right an injustice that I thought was being heaped on young people by lowering the voting age, where you had young people that were old enough to die in Vietnam but not old enough to vote for their members of Congress that sent them there. #Quote by Birch Bayh
Injustice quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#181. Sometimes we think that to develop an open heart, to be truly loving and compassionate, means that we need to be passive, to allow others to abuse us, to smile and let anyone do what they want with us. Yet this is not what is meant by compassion. Quite the contrary. Compassion is not at all weak. It is the strength that arises out of seeing the true nature of suffering in the world. Compassion allows us to bear witness to that suffering, whether it is in ourselves or others, without fear; it allows us to name injustice without hesitation, and to act strongly, with all the skill at our disposal. To develop this mind state of compassion ... is to learn to live, as the Buddha put it, with sympathy for all living beings, without exception. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Injustice quotes by Bella Thorne
#182. Everyone suffers some injustice in life, and what better motivation than to help others not suffer in the same way. #Quote by Bella Thorne
Injustice quotes by George Orwell
#183. The educated man pictures a horde of submen, wanting only a day's liberty to loot his house, burn his books, and set him to work minding a machine or sweeping out a lavatory. 'Anything,' he thinks, 'any injustice, sooner than let that mob loose.' He does not see that since there is no difference between the mass of rich and poor, there is no question of setting the mob loose. The mob is in fact loose now, and
in the shape of rich men
is using its power to set up enormous treadmills of boredom, such as 'smart' hotels. #Quote by George Orwell
Injustice quotes by Mychal Denzel Smith
#184. But the anger has not only drawn attention to injustice; it has driven people to action, sparking movements and spurring them forward. At the very least, the public expression of black rage has allowed communities and people who have felt isolated in their own anger to know that they are not alone. Anger is what makes our struggle visible. #Quote by Mychal Denzel Smith
Injustice quotes by Marietta Holley
#185. I wanted to visit the Capitol of our country, the center of our great civilization that stands like the sun in the solar system, sendin' out beams of power and wisdom and law and order, and justice and injustice, and money and oratory, and talk and talk, and wind and everything, to the uttermost points of our vast possessions, and from them clear to the ends of the earth. #Quote by Marietta Holley
Injustice quotes by Adam Smith
#186. A criminal is a person with predatory instincts who has not sufficient capital to form a corporation.Most government is by the rich for the rich. Government comprises a large part of the organized injustice in any society, ancient or modern.Civil government, insofar as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defence of the rich against the poor, and for the defence of those who have property against those who have none. #Quote by Adam Smith
Injustice quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#187. Adjusting to inhumanity is an inhumanity itself. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Injustice quotes by Andrew Marvell
#188. But Fate does iron wedges drive,
And always crowds itself betwixt. #Quote by Andrew Marvell
Injustice quotes by Samuel Johnson
#189. A lawyer has no business with the justice or injustice of the cause which he undertakes, unless his client asks his opinion, and then he is bound to give it honestly. The justice or injustice of the cause is to be decided by the judge. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Injustice quotes by Amanda McKittrick Ros
#190. When on the eve of glory, whilst brooding over the prospects of a bright and happy future, whilst meditating upon the risky right of justice, there we remain, wanderers on the cloudy surface of mental woe, disappointment and danger, inhabitants of the grim sphere of anticipated imagery, partakers of the poisonous dregs of concocted injustice. Yet such is life. #Quote by Amanda McKittrick Ros
Injustice quotes by Thomas Merton
#191. Those who refuse His mercy satisfy His justice in another way. Without His mercy, they cannot love Him. Without love for Him they cannot be 'justified' or 'made just'. That is to say: they cannot conform to Him Who is love. Those who have not received His mercy are in a state of injustice with regard to Him. It is their own injustice that is condemned by His justice. And in what does their injustice consist? In the refusal of His mercy. We come, in the end, to this basic paradox: that we owe it to God to receive from Him the mercy that is offered to us in Christ, and that to refuse this mercy is the summation of our 'injustice'. Clearly, then, only the mercy of God can make us just, in this supernatural sense, since the primary demand of God's justice upon us is that we receive His mercy. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Injustice quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#192. I have a yearning for my beautiful country, and I love its people because of their misery. But if my people rose, simulated by plunder and motivated by what they call "patriotic spirit" to murder, and invaded my neighbour's country, then upon the committing of any human atrocity I would hate my people and my country. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Injustice quotes by Pope John Paul II
#193. The choice of euthanasia becomes more serious when it takes the form of a murder committed by others on a person who has in no way requested it and who has never consented to it. The height of arbitrariness and injustice is reached when certain people, such as physicians or legislators, arrogate to themselves the power to decide who ought to live and who ought to die. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Injustice quotes by Terry Pratchett
#194. Most people develop their social conscience when young, during that brief period between leaving school and deciding that injustice isn't necessarily all bad, and #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Injustice quotes by Gavin Extence
#195. Because sometimes chance and circumstance can seem like the most appalling injustice, but we just have to adapt. That's all we can do. #Quote by Gavin Extence
Injustice quotes by Isaac Marion
#196. The apocalypse didn't happen overnight. The world didn't end in a satisfying climax of explosive special effects. It was slow. It was boring. It was one little thing at a time. One moral compromise, one abandoned ideal, one more justified injustice. No dramatic wave of destruction sweeping across the world, just scattered spots of rot forming throughout the decades, seemingly isolated incidents until the moment they all merged. #Quote by Isaac Marion
Injustice quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#197. I believe you should tell the story of injustices, of inequalities, of bad conditions, so that the people as a whole in this country really face the problems that people who are pushed to the point of striking know all about, but others know practically nothing about. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Injustice quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#198. Must the citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resigns his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience then? I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Injustice quotes by Johnnetta B. Cole
#199. I grew up in the South. I grew up in the days of legalized segregation. And, so, whether you called it legal racial segregation or you called it apartheid, it was the same injustice. #Quote by Johnnetta B. Cole
Injustice quotes by Carla H. Krueger
#200. Nothing in her life makes sense.
All she craves is for the pieces of the puzzle to fit together again.
She is sure one day it will happen. She just doesn't know when.
She can't fight injustice alone
– for that, she needs her friends. #Quote by Carla H. Krueger
