Prejudice quotes by Deepak Chopra
#1. Religion has failed us. Christ was not a Christian. Buddha was not a Buddhist. Mohammed was not a Mohammedan. And yet ever since the dawn of history, we have engaged in conflict and war and terrorism and murder and racism and ethnocentrism and bigotry and prejudice in the name of God. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Prejudice quotes by M. Scott Peck
#2. Human beings are poor examiners, subject to superstition, bias, prejudice, and a PROFOUND tendency to see what they want to see rather than what is really there. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Prejudice quotes by Arin Murphy-Hiscock

Oisce #Quote by Arin Murphy-Hiscock

Prejudice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#8. If you and Marcus were white, maybe the country is just as pissed as you are. But knowing that it's wrong doesn't make it any less true. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Prejudice quotes by Marguerite Gardiner

Prejudice quotes by Angela Thirkell
#10. ...And of course they'll get their milk from us, because Gooch's milk in the village really can't be trusted. I do hope, Henry, the vicarage drains are all right if Martin is to go there, because the French are rather vague about drains.'

'Yes, but darling, they aren't bringing their drains with them'... #Quote by Angela Thirkell
Prejudice quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#11. Music speaks directly to the heart. This response, this echo within the heart, is proof that human hearts can transcend the barriers of time and space and nationality. Exchanges in the field of culture can play an important role in enabling people to overcome mistrust and prejudice and build peace. #Quote by Daisaku Ikeda
Prejudice quotes by Pearl Mary Teresa Craigie
#12. Conscience is the name which the orthodox give to their prejudices. #Quote by Pearl Mary Teresa Craigie
Prejudice quotes by Buck Brannaman
#13. As far as horses go, people will ask about one breed versus another. I have to tell you, I really don't have any prejudice one way or another. I treat every horse at face value, how he/she is as an individual. #Quote by Buck Brannaman
Prejudice quotes by Thomas Paine
#14. No man is prejudiced in favour of a thing, knowing it to be wrong. He is attached to it on the belief of its being right; and when he sees it is not so, the prejudice will be gone. We have but a defective idea of what prejudice is. It might be said, that until men think for themselves the whole is prejudice, and not opinion; for that only is opinion which is the result of reason and reflection. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Prejudice quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#15. Intellectually just saying "all lives matter", you may feel very good about yourself, you may feel, "I am so profound, I go beyond what people are able to see", but actually you do not see anything, you don't see the basic issues that people face, you don't see the ground-level problems that people face, you don't see the regular hate that people face, in their everyday walk of life, you are just a closet philosopher who loves to feel good in glorifying the indifference of the society. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Prejudice quotes by Zadie Smith
#16. Now, how do the young prepare to meet the old? The same way the old prepare to meet the young: with a little condescension; with low expectation of the other's rationality; with the knowledge that the other will find what they say hard to understand, that it will go beyond them (not so much over the head as between the legs); and with the feeling that they must arrive with something the other will like, something suitable. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Prejudice quotes by Gustave Courbet
#17. I have studied the art of the masters and the art of the moderns, avoiding any preconceived system and without prejudice. I have no more wanted to imitate the former than to copy the latter; nor have I thought of achieving the idle aim of art for art's sake. #Quote by Gustave Courbet
Prejudice quotes by Pema Chodron
#18. To lead a life that goes beyond pettiness and prejudice and always wanting to make sure that everything turns out on our own terms, to lead a more passionate, full, and delightful life than that, we must realize we can endure a lot of pain and pleasure for the sake of finding out who we are and what this world is. (The Wisdom of No Escape, p. 3) #Quote by Pema Chodron
Prejudice quotes by Gabor Mate
#19. The war mentality represents an unfortunate confluence of ignorance, fear, prejudice, and profit ... The ignorance exists in its own right and is further perpetuated by government propaganda. The fear is that of ordinary people scared by misinformation but also that of leaders who may know better but are intimidated by the political costs of speaking out on such a heavily moralized and charged issue. The prejudice is evident in the contradiction that some harmful substances (alcohol, tobacco) are legal while others, less harmful in some ways, are contraband. This has less to do with the innate danger of the drugs than with which populations are publicly identified with using the drugs. The white and wealthier the population, the more acceptable is the substance. And profit. If you have fear, prejudice, and ignorance, there will be profit. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Prejudice quotes by Booker T. Washington
#20. By habits of thrift and economy, by way of the industrial school and college, we are coming up. We are crawling up, working up, yea, bursting up-often through oppression, unjust discrimination and prejudice-but through them all we are coming up, and with proper habits, intelligence, and property, there is no power on earth than can permanently stay our progress. #Quote by Booker T. Washington
Prejudice quotes by Andre Gide
#21. There is no prejudice that the work of art does not finally overcome. #Quote by Andre Gide
Prejudice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#22. Every time our people take two steps forward, it seems that we take a step and a half backward. Things are changing for the better, but when you wear your difference on your face, when the color of your skin defines who you are to others, change doesn't come easy… #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Prejudice quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#23. Again, we may decry the color-prejudice of the South, yet it remains a heavy fact. Such curious kinks of the human mind exist and must be reckoned with soberly. They cannot be laughed away, nor always successfully stormed at, nor easily abolished by act of legislature. And yet they must not be encouraged by being let alone. They must be recognized as facts, but unpleasant facts; things that stand in the way of civilization and religion and common decency. They can be met in but one way - by the breadth and broadening of human reason, by catholicity of taste and culture. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Prejudice quotes by Preston Manning
#24. When political and business leaders tell the public - any public - 'We don't trust you to make the right decision' - they prejudice that electorate against the very proposals they want it to accept and undermine public confidence in themselves. #Quote by Preston Manning
Prejudice quotes by Carly Fiorina
#25. People's ideas and fears can make them small but they cannot make you small. People's prejudices can diminish them but they cannot diminish you. Small-minded people can think they determine your worth. But only you can determine your worth. #Quote by Carly Fiorina
Prejudice quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#26. Prejudicial attitude toward each other in a team is an obstacle in the way to unity #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Prejudice quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#27. Bernie believed in God. He believed that God wanted people to enjoy life to the fullest, not drench themselves in aversion and prejudice. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Prejudice quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#28. It is not enough for the Negroes to declare that color-prejudice is the sole cause of their social condition, nor for the white South to reply that their social condition is the main cause of prejudice. They both act as reciprocal cause and effect, and a change in neither alone will bring the desired effect. Both must change, or neither can improve to any great extent."(p.88) ... "Only by a union of intelligence and sympathy across the color-line in this critical period of the Republic shall justice and right triumph, #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Prejudice quotes by Jane Austen
#29. If you were to give me forty such men, I never could be so happy as you. Till I have your disposition, your goodness, I never can have your happiness. No, no, let me shift for myself; and, perhaps, if I have very good luck, I may meet with another Mr. Collins in time. #Quote by Jane Austen
Prejudice quotes by Emily Saliers
#30. I don't think any human being is truly free. We're so tethered to our own insecurities and hampered by our fears and our prejudices. I think it's human nature that we're never going to be free. #Quote by Emily Saliers
Prejudice quotes by Laure Junot, Duchess Of Abrantes
#31. Prejudice squints when it looks and lies when it talks. #Quote by Laure Junot, Duchess Of Abrantes
Prejudice quotes by Ouida
#32. The art of pleasing is more based on the art of seeming pleased than people think of, and she disarmed the prejudices of her enemies by the unaffected delight she appeared to take in themselves. #Quote by Ouida
Prejudice quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#33. 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
Prejudice quotes by James Hilton
#34. If I had a child who wanted to be a teacher, I would bid him Godspeed as if he were going to war. For indeed the war against prejudice, greed, and ignorance is eternal, and those who dedicate themselves to it give their lives no less because they may live to see some fraction of the battle won. #Quote by James Hilton
Prejudice quotes by Salman Rushdie
#35. If my child had prejudice in his head, I'd be ashamed. I would see it as my failure as a parent. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Prejudice quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#36. It is a prejudice to think that morality is more favourable to the development of reason than immorality. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Prejudice quotes by Howard Jacobson
#37. By what twisted sophistication of argument do you harry people with violence off your land and then think yourself entitled to make high-minded stipulations as to where they may go now you are rid of them and how they may provide for their future welfare? I am an Englishman who loves England, but do you suppose that it too is not a racist country? Do you know of any country whose recent history is not blackened by prejudice and hate against somebody? So what empowers racists in their own right to sniff out racism in others? Only from a world from which Jews believe they have nothing to fear will they consent to learn lessons in humanity. Until then, the Jewish state's offer of safety to Jews the world over yes, Jews first – while it might not be equitable cannot sanely be constructed as racist. I can understand why a Palestinian might say it feels racist to him, though he too inherits a history of disdain for people of other persuasions to himself, but not you, madam, since you present yourself as a bleeding-heart, conscience-pricked representative of the very Gentile world from which Jews, through no fault of their own, have been fleeing for centuries... #Quote by Howard Jacobson
Prejudice quotes by Rainn Wilson
#38. I was raised to think about philosophy and religious thought and the soul and the spirit of humankind in a different way, also really socially progressive teachings of the Baha'i faith, the equality of men and women, the elimination of racial prejudice, the equality of science and religion, so it was a big cauldron of big ideas in my household. And we were weird and unhappy family, but nonetheless that was a really positive thing that came out of it. #Quote by Rainn Wilson
Prejudice quotes by Aleister Crowley
#39. Every individual has some qualities that endear him to some other. And per contra, I doubt if there is any class which is not detestable to some other class. Artists, police, the clergy, "reds," foxhunters, Freemasons, Jews, "heaven-born," women's clubwomen (especially in U.S.A.), "Methodys," golfers, dog-lovers; you can't find one body without its "natural" enemies. It's right, what's worse; every class, as a class, is almost sure to have more defects than qualities. As soon as you put men together, they somehow sink, corporatively, below the level of the worst of the individuals composing it. Collect scholars on a club committee, or men of science on a jury; all their virtues vanish, and their vices pop out, reinforced by the self-confidence which the power of numbers is bound to bestow. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Prejudice quotes by Bryant McGill
#40. We find ourselves constantly in battle in the vast human theaters of conflict. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Prejudice quotes by Virginia Postrel
#41. Behind the criticism of fashion as an artistic medium is a highly ideological prejudice: against markets, against consumers, against the dynamism of Western commercial society. The debate is not about art but about culture and economics. #Quote by Virginia Postrel
Prejudice quotes by Richard E. Byrd
#42. At the end only two things really matter to a man, regardless of who he is; and they are the affection and understanding of his family. Anything and everything else he creates are insubstantial; they are ships given over to the mercy of the winds and tides of prejudice. but the family is an everlasting anchorage, a quiet harbor where a man's ships can be left to swing to the moorings of pride and loyalty. #Quote by Richard E. Byrd
Prejudice quotes by Louise Thaden
#43. There is a decided prejudice on the part of the general public against being piloted by a woman, and as great an aversion, partially because of this, by executives of those companies whose activities require employing pilots. #Quote by Louise Thaden
Prejudice quotes by Gerald Weaver
#44. Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice should create in the discerning male reader a deeply rooted concupiscence for Elizabeth Bennet that springs not from her vivacity or from her wit but from her unerring instinct to follow the deeply moral directives of her own character even against the influences and arguments of society, of convention, of seeming necessity, and of her friends and family. Properly read, Austen should be a form of pornography for the morally and spiritually discriminating man. #Quote by Gerald Weaver
Prejudice quotes by Samantha Young
#45. And like many wars it was built upon a mindless prejudice. #Quote by Samantha Young
Prejudice quotes by Edmund Burke
#46. Parliament is not a congress of ambassadors from different and hostile interests; which interests each must maintain, as an agent and advocate, against other agents and advocates; but parliament is a deliberative assembly of one nation, with one interest, that of the whole; where, not local purposes, not local prejudices ought to guide, but the general good, resulting from the general reason of the whole. You choose a member indeed; but when you have chosen him, he is not a member of Bristol, but he is a member of parliament. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Prejudice quotes by Aeschylus
#47. He hears but half who hears one party only. #Quote by Aeschylus
Prejudice quotes by Debbie Cowens
#48. I should mortify a dozen Sir Johns if it might aid my investigation." - Elizabeth Bennet #Quote by Debbie Cowens
Prejudice quotes by Alice Walker
#49. The absence of models, in literature as in life, to say nothing of painting, is an occupational hazard for the artist, simply because models in art, in behavior, in growth of spirit and intellect
even if rejected
enrich and enlarge one's view of existence. Deadlier still, to the artist who lacks models, is the curse of ridicule, the bringing to bear on an artist's best work, especially his or her most original, most strikingly deviant, only a fund of ignorance and the presumption that as an artist's critic one's judgement is free of the restrictions imposed by prejudice, and is well informed, indeed, about all the art in the world that really matters. #Quote by Alice Walker
Prejudice quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#50. The purpose of the latest series of intellectual meetings, which were held in various parlors in Concord, was to talk about Reconstruction with objectivity, sensibility, and a lack of prejudice. As everyone had expected, the meetings were far from objective, seldom sensible, and never unprejudiced. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Prejudice quotes by Oscar Wilde
#51. His principles were out of date, but there was a good deal to be said for his prejudices. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Prejudice quotes by Atrocitus
#52. Do you hate?

The most powerful hate is not born out of ignorance or prejudice or a perceived threat. Those three are fear in disguise.

The fury that fuels my corps ignites from personal pain. Those whose lives were ravaged by greed, lust and control wield the crimson light.

The rings replace our damaged hearts. They beat for them. And they keep us alive only to hate. #Quote by Atrocitus
Prejudice quotes by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
#53. I have a respect for family pride. If it be a prejudice, it is a prejudice in its most picturesque shape. But I hold it is connected with some of the noblest feelings in our nature. #Quote by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
Prejudice quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#54. There are several specific things that the church can do. First, it should try to get to the ideational roots of race hate, something that the law cannot accomplish. All race prejudice is based upon fears, suspicions, and misunderstandings, usually groundless. The church can be of immeasurable help in giving the popular mind direction here. Through its channels of religious education, the church can point out the irrationality of these beliefs. It can show that the idea of a superior or inferior race is a myth that has been completely refuted by anthropological evidence. It can show that Negroes are not innately inferior in academic, health, and moral standards. It can show that, when given equal opportunities, Negroes can demonstrate equal achievement. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Prejudice quotes by Bill Vaughan
#55. Most new things are not good, and die an early death; but those which push themselves forward and by slow degrees force themselves on the attention of mankind are the unconscious productions of human wisdom, and must have honest consideration, and must not be made the subject of unreasoning prejudice. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Prejudice quotes by John Steinbeck
#56. The emotion of nonviolence was building in him until it became a prejudice like any other thought-stultifying prejudice. To inflict any hurt on anything for any purpose became inimical to him. He became obsessed with this emotion, for such it surely was, until it blotted out any possible thinking in its area. But never was there any hint of cowardice in Adam's army record. Indeed he was commended three times and then decorated for bravery. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Prejudice quotes by Tobias Smollett
#57. that report has influenced my opinion of his looks____You know we are the fools of prejudice. Howsoever #Quote by Tobias Smollett
Prejudice quotes by Zoe Marriott
#58. Aside from wanting to write cracking good books that turn children into lifelong readers, I really want to create stories that enable kids to LOOK at the world around them. To see it for what it is, with wide open, wondering eyes. Our mass media is so horribly skewed. It presents this idea of 'normalcy' which excludes and marginalises so many for an idea of commercial viability which is really nothing but blinkered prejudice. People who are black and Asian and Middle Eastern and Hispanic, people who are gay or transgendered or genderqueer, people who have disabilities, disfigurements or illnesses - all have this vision of a world which does not include them shoved down their throats almost 24-7, and they're told 'No one wants to see stories about people like you. Films and TV shows about people like you won't make money. Stories about straight, white, cisgendered, able-bodied people are universal and everyone likes them. You are small and useless and unattractive and you don't matter.'

My worry is that this warped version of 'normal' eventually forms those very same blinkers on children's eyes, depriving them of their ability to see anyone who isn't the same as them, preventing them from developing the ability to empathise with and appreciate and take joy in the lives and experiences of people who are different from them. If Shadows on the Moon - or anything I write - causes a young person to look at their own life, or the life of another, and think, 'Maybe being d #Quote by Zoe Marriott
Prejudice quotes by William Hazlitt
#59. Without the aid of prejudice and custom, I should not be able to find my way across the room. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Prejudice quotes by Noel DeJesus
#60. Never allow doubt to roam unimpeded within you. When it arises acknowledge it immediately, and then exterminate it with extreme prejudice. #Quote by Noel DeJesus
Prejudice quotes by Novalis
#61. It is the most capricious prejudice to believe that a human being is denied the capacity to be outside himself, to be consciously beyond the senses. He is capable at any moment of being a suprasensual being. Without this he would not be a citizen of the world - he would be an animal. It is true that under these circumstances reflection, the discovery of oneself - is very difficult, since they are so ceaselessly, so necessarily connected with the change in our other circumstances. But the more conscious of these circumstances we can be, the more lively, powerful, and ample is the conviction which derives from them - the belief in true revelations of the spirit. It is not seeing - hearing - feeling - it is a combination of all three - more than all three - a sensation of immediate certainty - a view of my truest, most actual life - thoughts change into laws - wishes are fulfilled. For the weak person the fact of this moment is an article of faith.

The phenomenon becomes especially striking at the sight of many human forms and faces - particularly so on catching sight of many eyes, expressions, movements - on hearing certain words, reading certain passages - at certain views of life, world, and fate. Very many chance incidents, many natural events, particular times of the day and year bring us such experiences. Certain moods are especially favorable to such revelations. Most last only an instant - few linger - fewest of all remain. In this respect there are great diff #Quote by Novalis
Prejudice quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#62. All classes in proportion to their lack of travel and familiarity with foreign literature are bellicose, prejudiced against foreigners, fond of fighting as a cruel sport
in short, dog-like in their notions of foreign policy.
[Quoted in Socialism and Foreign Policy and War and the Liberal Conscience] #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Prejudice quotes by Stephen Lovegrove
#63. Tolerance is the essential starting point for compassion. That's why it is so emphasized in our society right now. In a world full of discrimination, prejudice, and marginalization, people need to be taught to tolerate people who are different. Tolerance, at the political, social, and cultural level, will prevent us from choosing speech or actions that harms other people groups, which is a definite win. #Quote by Stephen Lovegrove
Prejudice quotes by Herman Melville
#64. If a drunkard in a sober fit is the dullest of mortals, an enthusiast in a reason-fit is not the most lively. And this, without prejudice to his greatly improved understanding; for, if his elation was the height of his madness, his despondency is but the extreme of his sanity. #Quote by Herman Melville
Prejudice quotes by Pope Francis
#65. When a person begins to recognize the sickness in their soul, when the Holy Spirit - the Grace of God - acts within them and moves their heart toward an initial recognition of their own sins, he needs to find an open door, not a closed one. He needs to find acceptance, not judgment, prejudice, or condemnation. He needs to be helped, not pushed away or cast out. Sometimes, when Christians think like scholars of the law, their hearts extinguish that which the Holy Spirit lights up in the heart of a sinner when he stands at the threshold, when he starts to feel nostalgia for God. #Quote by Pope Francis
Prejudice quotes by Chetan Bhagat
#66. The upper-caste, upper-class Hindus have to let go of their bigotry and prejudice. The oppressed have to let go of their justified but expensive urge for revenge and retribution. All over the world, the oppressed have only risen through self-empowerment - look at the Jews and the Parsis. #Quote by Chetan Bhagat
Prejudice quotes by Jane Austen
#67. Of this she was perfectly unaware; to her he was only the man who had made himself agreeable nowhere, and who had not thought her handsome enough to dance with. #Quote by Jane Austen
Prejudice quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#68. I laid facts out for you, Miss Wadsworth. You assumed I meant lover. You assumed he was untrustworthy, simply because of our professions. Your prejudice interfered with your ability to inquire further, to ask more specific questions, to separate fact from the fiction of your mind. You had the opportunity to clear everything up; I would not have lied to you. That was a choice you made, and did I benefit from it? Of course I did. I make no denial of the fact I've used this method on people before, and I will most certainly do so in the future. If you're angry with anyone, it ought to be yourself as well. You created an illusion of the truth you wanted to see. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Prejudice quotes by Penn Jillette
#69. If the bible were published as fiction, no reviewer would give it a passing grade. There are some vivid scenes and quotable phrases but there's no plot, no structure, a tremendous amount of filler and the characters are painfully one dimensional. Whatever you do, don't read the bible for a moral code. It advocates prejudice, cruelty, superstition and murder. Read it because we need more atheists. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Prejudice quotes by Fidelis O. Mkparu
#70. Our relationship was convoluted and was mired in cross-cultural vicissitude.Our promising friendship faltered after she became a supermodel.What prejudice could not destroy was extinguished by fame and a lucrative modeling contract. #Quote by Fidelis O. Mkparu
Prejudice quotes by Blaise Pascal
#71. There is no denying it; one must admit that there is something astonishing about Christianity. 'It is because you were born in it,' they will say. Far from it; I stiffen myself against it for that very reason, for fear of being corrupted by prejudice. But, though I was born in it, I cannot help finding it astonishing. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Prejudice quotes by Andre Gide
#72. Prejudices are the props of civilization. #Quote by Andre Gide
Prejudice quotes by Voltaire
#73. Prejudices are what fools use for reason. #Quote by Voltaire
Prejudice quotes by Jacque Fresco
#74. Human behavior is subject to the same laws as any other natural phenomenon. Our customs, behaviors, and values are byproducts of our culture. No one is born with greed, prejudice, bigotry, patriotism and hatred; these are all learned behavior patterns. If the environment is unaltered, similar behavior will reoccur. #Quote by Jacque Fresco
Prejudice quotes by Angie Thomas
#75. This is exactly what They expect you to do," Momma says.
They with a capital T.
There's Them and then there's Us.
Sometimes They look like Us and don't recognize They are Us. #Quote by Angie Thomas
Prejudice quotes by Margaret Atwood
#76. I saw a number of Adult pictures long before I was an adult, but no one ever questioned my age. I was quite fat by this time and all fat women look the same, they all look forty-two. Also, fat women are not more noticeable than thin women; they're less noticeable, because people find them distressing and look away. To the ushers and the ticket sellers I must've appeared as a huge featureless blur. If I'd ever robbed a bank no witness would have been able to describe me accurately. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Prejudice quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#77. Position, - for the Negro to realize more deeply than he does at present the need of uplifting the masses of his people, for the white people to realize more vividly than they have yet done the deadening and disastrous effect of a color-prejudice that classes Phillis Wheatley #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Prejudice quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#78. As Nina emerged from her thoughts, she realized that she and Matthias were attracting some very unfriendly glances. No doubt there was quite a bit of prejudice against Fjerdans among Ravkans, but this was something different. Then she glanced up at Matthias and sighed. His expression was troubled, and when he looked troubled, he looked terrifying. The fact that he was built like the tank they'd driven out of the Ice Court didn't help either. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Prejudice quotes by Ibn Al-Haytham
#79. The seeker after truth is not one who studies the writings of the ancients and, following his natural disposition, puts his trust in them," the first scientist wrote, "but rather the one who suspects his faith in them and questions what he gathers from them, the one who submits to argument and demonstration and not the sayings of human beings whose nature is fraught with all kinds of imperfection and deficiency. Thus the duty of the man who investigates the writings of scientists, if learning the truth is his goal, is to make himself an enemy of all that he reads, and, applying his mind to the core and margins of of its content, attack it from every side. he should also suspect himself as he performs his critical examination of it, so that he may avoid falling into either prejudice or leniency. #Quote by Ibn Al-Haytham
Prejudice quotes by Jack Weatherford
#80. The traditional Chinese kingdoms operated under centuries of constraints on commerce. The building of walls on their borders had been a way of limiting such trade and literally keeping the wealth of the nation intact and inside the walls. For such administrators, giving up trade goods was the same as paying tribute to their neighbors, and they sought to avoid it as much as they could. The Mongols directly attacked the Chinese cultural prejudice that ranked merchants as merely a step above robbers by officially elevating their status ahead of all religions and professions, second only to government officials. In a further degradation of Confucian scholars, the Mongols reduced them from the highest level of traditional Chinese society to the ninth level, just below prostitutes but above beggars. #Quote by Jack Weatherford
Prejudice quotes by Jack Levin
#81. Bigotry and hatred and prejudice rise and fall depending on certain situations. #Quote by Jack Levin
Prejudice quotes by Kate Smith
#82. Public and employer opinion often defeat society's best interests with a prejudice against middle-aged women. #Quote by Kate Smith
Prejudice quotes by Wendy Beckett
#83. Prejudice is always dangerous. #Quote by Wendy Beckett
Prejudice quotes by Joseph Story
#84. The truth is, that, even with the most secure tenure of office, during good behavior, the danger is not, that the judges will be too firm in resisting public opinion, and in defence of private rights or public liberties; but, that they will be ready to yield themselves to the passions, and politics, and prejudices of the day. #Quote by Joseph Story
Prejudice quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#85. Not long ago, having expressed some disagreements in print with an old comrade of long standing, I was sent a response that he had published in an obscure newspaper. This riposte referred to my opinions as 'racist.' I would obviously scorn to deny such an allegation on my own behalf. I would, rather, prefer to repudiate it on behalf of my former friend. He had known me for many years and cooperated with me on numerous projects, and I am quite confident that he would never have as a collaborator anyone he suspected of racial prejudice. But it does remind me, and not for the first time, that quarrels on the left have a tendency to become miniature treason trials, replete with all kinds of denunciation. There's a general tendency - not by any means confined to radicals but in some way specially associated with them - to believe that once the lowest motive for a dissenting position has been found, it must in some way be the real one. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Prejudice quotes by Mary Lascelles
#86. As for Elizabeth Bennet, our chief reason for accepting her point of view as a reflection of her author's is the impression that she bears of sympathy between them
an impression of which almost every reader would be sensible, even if it had not the explicit confirmation of Jane Austen's letters. Yet, as she is presented to us in Pride and Prejudice, she is but a partial and sometimes perverse observer. #Quote by Mary Lascelles
Prejudice quotes by Anthony Romero
#87. When you've seen prejudice, you understand that we aren't finished, that we're still perfecting this American experiment. #Quote by Anthony Romero
Prejudice quotes by Gregory Maguire
#88. Perhaps every accidental cluster of people has a short period of grace, in between an initial shyness and prejudice on the one hand and eventual repugnance and betrayal on the other. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Prejudice quotes by Barney Frank
#89. I am very proud of the role I played in getting legal equality for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, and in helping get rid of the prejudice by being visible about it, helping to block the conviction of Bill Clinton of impeachment. #Quote by Barney Frank
Prejudice quotes by Sebastian Gorka
#90. You cannot win a war if you cannot talk honestly about the enemy Since the 9/11 attacks, political correctness and ideological prejudice - under both Republican and Democratic presidents - have distorted our analysis of the enemy, preventing us from drawing an effective plan to defeat the likes of Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. The Obama administration, blinded by its own preconceived ideas of why terrorism occurs, is influenced by malevolent actors who have an interest in censoring any talk of the religious aspects of the enemy's ideology. At the highest level of the U.S. government, terrorism is deemed to be the result of poverty, unemployment, and lack of political enfranchisement. This fallacy must be jettisoned. We are not at war with Islam. The people most immanently in danger, in fact, are the nonviolent and non-extremist Muslims of the Middle East, such as our allies in Jordan and the modern Muslims of Egypt and the United Arab Emirates. They are on the most important front of this war, and they understand just how much religion truly matters. We do a great disservice to those brave Muslims when we try to convince the world that the threat will disappear if enough people have good jobs and sound educations. #Quote by Sebastian Gorka
Prejudice quotes by Margaret Halsey
#91. The modification of prejudice takes a long time, and occurs as the result of a thousand things that happen to the prejudiced person - things he sees and hears and reads, people he talks to, and places he visits. Any given reformer must be content to take a small and obscure place in a chain of cumulative pressures. #Quote by Margaret Halsey
Prejudice quotes by Herman Melville
#92. It's only his outside; a man can be honest in any sort of skin. #Quote by Herman Melville
Prejudice quotes by Linda Chavez
#93. Their prejudice allowed white Southerners to look the other way when blacks were denied their most basic human rights, and it encouraged the worst of them to engage in unspeakable acts of cruelty and violence. #Quote by Linda Chavez
Prejudice quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#94. A man once asked me ... how I managed in my books to write such natural conversation between men when they were by themselves. Was I, by any chance, a member of a large, mixed family with a lot of male friends? I replied that, on the contrary, I was an only child and had practically never seen or spoken to any men of my own age till I was about twenty-five. "Well," said the man, "I shouldn't have expected a woman (meaning me) to have been able to make it so convincing." I replied that I had coped with this difficult problem by making my men talk, as far as possible, like ordinary human beings. This aspect of the matter seemed to surprise the other speaker; he said no more, but took it away to chew it over. One of these days it may quite likely occur to him that women, as well as men, when left to themselves, talk very much like human beings also. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Prejudice quotes by Walton Goggins
#95. I never fancied myself having a prejudice towards people with tattoos. I personally don't have any and I don't think that I do, but I do see that people treat me differently with tattoos. People get out of my way. #Quote by Walton Goggins
Prejudice quotes by Mary Church Terrell
#96. Seeing their children touched and seared and wounded by race prejudice is one of the heaviest crosses which colored women have to bear. #Quote by Mary Church Terrell
Prejudice quotes by Aatish Taseer
#97. But he did not say a thing. Of late, almost as if he had been brought into line with the way people now spoke of the Sikhs, he had come to dislike the sound of his dissenting voice. It made him feel like a bore and an activist; and, like many people who try to fight an emerging status quo, no matter how ugly it is, he felt himself subdued, not by arguments, but by its casual tyranny. It is easier to fight the knowing bigot than it is to fight prejudice in the mouth of a child or the throwaway remark of a society lady. #Quote by Aatish Taseer
Prejudice quotes by Marty Rubin
#98. When an audience shares your prejudices you can always count on their applause. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Prejudice quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#99. I think that anti-Jewish prejudice is an unfailing sign of a sick and disordered person ... It's a horrible, conspiratorial, pseudo-intellectual, mean spirited, eventually lethal piece of bigotry. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Prejudice quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#100. It's an universal law
intolerance is the first sign of an inadequate education. An ill-educated person behaves with arrogant impatience, whereas truly profound education breeds humility. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Prejudice quotes by Daniel C. Dennett
#101. [T]he idea of treating Mind as an effect rather than as a First Cause is too revolutionary for some–an "awful stretcher" that their own minds cannot acommodate comfortably. This is as true today as it was in 1860, and it has always been as true of some of evolution's best friends as of its foes. For instance, the physicist Paul Davies, in his recent book The Mind of God, proclaims that the reflective power of human minds can be "no trivial detail, no minor by-product of mindless purposeless forces" (Davies 1992, p. 232). This is a most revealing way of expressing a familiar denial, for it betrays an ill-examined prejudice. Why, we might ask Davies, would its being a by-product of mindless, purposeless forces make it trivial? Why couldn't the most important thing of all be something that arose from unimportant things? Why should the importance or excellence of anything have to rain down on it from on high, from something more important, a gift from God? Darwin's inversion suggests that we abandon that presumption and look for sorts of excellence, of worth and purpose, that can emerge, bubbling up out of "mindless, purposeless forces. #Quote by Daniel C. Dennett
Prejudice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#102. A racist cop pulls over a black driver for little reason other than the fact that the driver is black and a recent robbery was committed by a couple of young black guys in a white community. The cop quickly realizes the driver is not one of the robbery suspects. He sees a man with a wife and two small children. They are not a couple of young punks. Still,he persists. Why?
"He asks to see the driver's license and registration. While locating the appropriate documents, the black driver respectfully volunteers that he is legally carrying a handgun. The cop panics - is it the image of a black man with a gun? He barks out conflicting orders and then shoots the man
to death, in front of his family. Why? "Is it because the cop is an insensitive racist? Maybe he wasn't trained or taught any better? Perhaps he lived a completely different life in a completely different world than that of the black man. In this cop's world, were all black men potential criminals, people to be watched, people to be feared? #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Prejudice quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#103. When the house is on fire, do you argue the color of the skin of the man who brings the water? #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Prejudice quotes by Paulo Coelho
#104. People always judge others by taking as a model their own limitations, and other people's opinions are often full of prejudice and fear. Join with all those who experiment, take risks, fall, get hurt and then take more risks. Stay away from those who affirm truths, who criticise those who do not think like them, people who have never once taken a step unless they were sure they would be respected for doing so, and who prefer certainties to doubts. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Prejudice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#105. A black woman challenging the system and taking on a white man - especially a white cop - is not going to have an easy time. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Prejudice quotes by Margaret Halsey
#106. Passionately prejudiced people always turn out, under scrutiny, to be people who cannot get along on a footing of equality with anyone ... #Quote by Margaret Halsey
Prejudice quotes by Heather Lynn Rigaud
#107. It seemed so good when it started.
I gave my trust to you.
I came to you open-hearted,
Hoping it was true.
Now I've gotten smart.
Now I've learned some things.
Now I know that what once was a start,
Is just an ending.
The longest good-bye
I ever knew,
The longest good-bye
Was the day
I said hello to you. #Quote by Heather Lynn Rigaud
Prejudice quotes by Hermann Weyl
#108. No mathematician of equal stature has risen from our generation ... Hilbert was singularly free from national and racial prejudices; in all public questions, be they political, social or spiritual, he stood forever on the side of freedom. #Quote by Hermann Weyl
Prejudice quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#109. A whole nation cannot rise above itself. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Prejudice quotes by Howard G. Hendricks
#110. Most people don't think, they just rearrange their prejudices. #Quote by Howard G. Hendricks
Prejudice quotes by Joseph Bruchac
#111. There are many people who could claim and learn from their Indian ancestry, but because of the fear their parents and grandparents knew, because of past and present prejudice against Indian people, that part of their heritage is clouded or denied. #Quote by Joseph Bruchac
Prejudice quotes by Jennifer Paynter
#112. But look behind you, Mary.' She nodded towards the dais. 'One of the musicians seems to be trying to attract your attention.'
It was Peter. He was standing on the dais smiling across at me. My delight at seeing him was such that I could not disguise it - did not try to disguise it. #Quote by Jennifer Paynter
Prejudice quotes by Charles Z. David
#113. Ollie was soon invited to attend public rallies and private meetings in which the crowd called for the expulsion of all foreigners from Sweden calling them parasites that sucked money and health benefits from the social security system. In fact, most of the protestors and demonstrators themselves lived on social security money while most of the immigrants were gainfully employed and paid their taxes regularly. But these facts were irrelevant since prejudice and xenophobia were dominant. #Quote by Charles Z. David
Prejudice quotes by Brunonia Barry
#114. ... once you start demonizing groups of people, when you make them the other, you can justify doing just about anything you want to the, can't you? Look at history if you don't believe me. #Quote by Brunonia Barry
Prejudice quotes by Bertie Carvel
#115. I came to musical theatre from straight acting, and a lot of my friends have a real prejudice about musical theatre - one I probably shared. #Quote by Bertie Carvel
Prejudice quotes by Arthur Symons
#116. All art is a form of artifice.For in art there can be no prejudices. #Quote by Arthur Symons
Prejudice quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#117. How can we appraise a proposal if the terms hurled at our ears can mean anything or nothing, and change their significance with the inflection of the voice? Welfare state, national socialism, radical, liberal, conservative, reactionary and a regiment of others ... these terms in today's usage, are generally compounds of confusion and prejudice. If our attitudes are muddled, our language is often to blame. A good tonic for clearer thinking is a dose of precise, legal definition. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Prejudice quotes by Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi
#118. To lay aside all prejudices, is to lay aside all principles. He who is destitute of principles is governed by whims. #Quote by Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi
Prejudice quotes by Alexander Cockburn
#119. The First Law of Journalism: to confirm existing prejudice, rather than contradict it. #Quote by Alexander Cockburn
Prejudice quotes by Winston Churchill
#120. Most people hate the taste of beer - to begin with. It is, however, a prejudice that many people have been able to overcome. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Prejudice quotes by John McCain
#121. I know where a lot of them [the elite or elitists] live.
Where's that?
Well, in our nation's capital and New York City. I've seen it. I've lived there. #Quote by John McCain
Prejudice quotes by Laura Bates
#122. Intersectionality means being aware of and acting on the fact that different forms of prejudice are connected, because they all stem from the same root of being 'other', 'different' or somehow 'secondary' to the 'normal', 'ideal' status quo. #Quote by Laura Bates
Prejudice 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
Prejudice quotes by Miroslav Volf
#124. There is no more effective way to radicalize American Muslim youth than for political leaders to make public displays of prejudice against all Muslims. Suspicion will undermine their sense of identification with America and alienate some from both the culture and from politics. #Quote by Miroslav Volf
Prejudice quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#125. Love is an awfully personal thing for most of us, so why isn't hate? #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Prejudice quotes by Shirley Chisholm
#126. When the Kerner Commission told white America what black America has always known, that prejudice and hatred built the nation's slums, maintains them and profits by them, white America could not believe it. But it is true. Unless we start to fight and defeat the enemies in our own country, poverty and racism, and make our talk of equality and opportunity ring true, we are exposed in the eyes of the world as hypocrites when we talk about making people free - (Chapter 9). #Quote by Shirley Chisholm
Prejudice quotes by Muhammad Ali
#127. Outrun the people who quit when they feel discomfort, outrun the people who stop because of despair, outrun the people who are delayed because of prejudice, outrun the people who surrender to failure, and outrun the opponent who loses sight of the goal. Because if you want to win, the will can never retire, the race can never stop, and faith can never weaken. #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Prejudice quotes by Colin Farrell
#128. I think that is what you want to do as a cinemagoer - to experience something fully. Some things don't let you experience them fully. It may be your own preordained prejudice where you can't experience them fully. But when you come out of the cinema having felt, thought, and experienced your way through two hours, that is a really cool thing. #Quote by Colin Farrell
Prejudice quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#129. It's just death and resurrection, over and over again, day after day, as God reaches down into our deepest graves and with the same power that raised Jesus from the dead wrests us from our pride, our apathy, our fear, our prejudice, our anger, our hurt, and our despair. Most days I don't know which is harder for me to believe: that God reanimated the brain functions of a man three days dead, or that God can bring back to life all the beautiful things we have killed. Both seem pretty unlikely to me. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Prejudice quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#130. The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy. An equal dispensation of protection, rights, privileges, and advantages, is what every part is entitled to, and ought to enjoy. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Prejudice quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#131. Free speech is a bourgeois prejudice. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Prejudice quotes by Andrew Solomon
#132. Any community that remains an abstraction is an easy target for prejudice and cruelty, but any community that becomes fully humanized is much harder to treat in that way. #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Prejudice quotes by Philip Dormer Stanhope
#133. We are really so prejudiced by our educations, that, as the ancients deified their heroes, we deify their madmen. #Quote by Philip Dormer Stanhope
Prejudice quotes by S.T. Joshi
#134. I may have had a prejudice against agnosticism as a body of thought: sort of a fence-sitting theory, where you can't make up your mind one way or another. #Quote by S.T. Joshi
Prejudice quotes by Dan Brown
#135. ...the word occult, despite conjuring images of devil worship, actually means 'hidden' or 'obscured.' In times of religious oppression, knowledge that was counterdoctrinal had to be kept hidden or 'occult,' and because the church felt threatened by this, they redefined anything 'occult' as evil, and the prejudice survived. > #Quote by Dan Brown
Prejudice quotes by Alan Bennett
#136. To her all books were the same and, as with her subjects, she felt a duty to approach them without prejudice ... Lauren Bacall, Winifred Holtby, Sylvia Plath - who were they? Only be reading could she find out. #Quote by Alan Bennett
Prejudice quotes by Irvine Welsh
#137. When I first started to get into writing, it was via music. I'd generate ideas for songs that would turn into stories, then they'd turn into novels. I was biased toward music. #Quote by Irvine Welsh
Prejudice quotes by David Henry Hwang
#138. I felt pretty good growing up. I didn't feel a lot of prejudice or racism. But I do remember, if there was going to be a movie or a television show with Asian characters, I would go out of my way to avoid them, because they portrayed all Asians as either ridiculously good or ridiculously bad; you know, the whole Charlie Chan-Fu Manchu thing. #Quote by David Henry Hwang
Prejudice quotes by Mark M. Bello
#139. The cop's suspended with pay. With pay, Mama! My husband is dead, and his killer gets a paid vacation? What kind of justice is that? #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Prejudice quotes by Paul Keating
#140. We took the traditional lands and smashed the traditional way of life. We brought the disasters. The alcohol. We committed the murders. We took the children from their mothers. We practised discrimination and exclusion. It was our ignorance and our prejudice. And our failure to imagine these things being done to us. #Quote by Paul Keating
Prejudice quotes by Norman Lock
#141. Talking of appearances, I would like my future readers to know that the picture of Jim and me that Thomas Hart Benton painted on the wall of the Missouri state capitol bears not the slightest resemblance to either one of us. ... I've never been satisfied with any representation of myself and have seen only one picture of Jim that did him justice. I don't know why this should be, unless it is evidence of a nearly universal prejudice against us, instigated by Sunday school superintendents, Republicans, and bigots. #Quote by Norman Lock
Prejudice quotes by Jennifer Paynter
#142. Peter was now standing very close - as if he wanted to comfort me - as if he knew how hurt I felt that Mrs Knowles had not asked me to play or to sing. And I did feel comforted. It was as if a tide of warmth was carrying me out of myself, inclining me to trust him and to conduct myself well. #Quote by Jennifer Paynter
Prejudice quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#143. He had destroyed his talent by not using it, by betrayals of himself and what he believed in, by drinking so much that he blunted the edge of his perceptions, by laziness, by sloth, and by snobbery, by pride and by prejudice, by hook and by crook. What was this? A catalogue of old books? What was his talent anyway? It was a talent all right but instead of using it, he had traded on it. It was never what he had done, but always what he could do. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Prejudice quotes by John Fowles
#144. You come to the United States not knowing what to expect. Then all your worst prejudices are confirmed. #Quote by John Fowles
Prejudice quotes by Carl Jung
#145. Many who know something but not enough about dreams and their meaning ... are liable to succumb to the prejudice that the dream actually has a moral purpose, that it warns, rebukes, comforts, foretells the future, etc. If one believes that the unconscious always knows best, one can easily be betrayed into leaving the dreams to take the necessary decisions, and is then disappointed when the dreams become more and more trivial and meaningless ... The unconscious functions satisfactorily only when the conscious mind fufills its task to the very limit. #Quote by Carl Jung
Prejudice quotes by John Steinbeck
#146. I remember thinking how wise a man was HC Andersen. The king told his secrets down a well, and his secrets were safe. A man who tells secrets or stories must think of who is hearing or reading, for a story has as many versions as it has readers. Everyone takes what he wants or can from it and thus changes it to his measure. Some pick out parts and reject the rest, some strain the story through their mesh of prejudice. Some paint it with their own delight. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Prejudice quotes by Michelle Madow
#147. The first time Mr. Darcy asked Lizzy to marry him in Pride and Prejudice, he went about it all wrong," I started, smiling at the connection I'd just made in my mind. "He insulted her and her
family. But after her refusal, he made a conscious effort to change for the better, and everything worked out for them the second time he proposed. It's the same with us. You learned from your past mistakes, and everything's different now. Just as Lizzy gave Mr. Darcy a second chance, I'm going to do the same for you."
"I'm glad that Lizzy gave Mr. Darcy a second chance." He smiled at the comparison. "She was the only one for him. He would have been miserable without her."
"And she would have been miserable without him." I laughed. "Even though she might not have admitted it. #Quote by Michelle Madow
Prejudice quotes by Nalini Singh
#148. What are we watching?" [ ... ]
[ ... ] He hugged her closer. "The sacrifices I make for you -just watch."
She was intrigued enough to pay attention to the screen. "Pride and Prejudice," she read out. "It's a book written by a human. Nineteenth century?"
"Uh-huh."
"The hero is ... Mr. Darcy?"
"Yes. According to Ti, he's the embodiment of male perfection." Dev ripped open a bag of chips he'd grabbed and put it in Katya's hands. "I don't know -the guy wears tights. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Prejudice quotes by Jennifer Paynter
#149. Before I could reply, he had picked me up, literally swept me off my feet, and kissed me. And afterwards, when I tried to speak, he silenced me in much the same manner. It was a shock (but not at all distasteful) to be so caught up. Later - when he at last set me down - he handled me more gently. He took of my glasses and told me that he loved me. #Quote by Jennifer Paynter
Prejudice quotes by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
#150. If we pass now from physical nature to the moral world, we still find ourselves subject to the same deceptions of appearance, to the same influences of spontaneity and habit. But the distinguishing feature of this second division of our knowledge is, on the one hand, the good or the evil which we derive from our opinions; and, on the other, the obstinacy with which we defend the prejudice which is tormenting and killing us. #Quote by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Prejudice quotes by Michael Crichton
#151. In any case, this was a deep human prejudice. Human beings to find a central command in any organization. States had governments. Corporations had CEOs. Schools had principals. Armies had generals. Human beings tended to believe that without central command, chaos would overwhelm the organization and nothing significant could be accomplished. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Prejudice quotes by Paul Auster
#152. It always stimulates me to discover new examples of my own prejudice and stupidity, to realize that I don't know half as much as I think I do. #Quote by Paul Auster
Prejudice quotes by Salman Khan
#153. One of my all-time favorite books is Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice - I know, a bit girly, but great is great. I hated the book when I was forced to read it and write a book report at fourteen. I only realized that I loved it - and a lot of literature - when I reread it for fun on a whim when I was twenty-three. The same is true for Huckleberry Finn, A Tale of Two Cities, and Brave New World. Not only was I more mature and had more perspective on life, but I had the time and motivation to appreciate it. I believe that motivation, the culture of a community, and outlets for exploration drive the appreciation of the arts, not grades and credit-unit requirements. #Quote by Salman Khan
Prejudice quotes by Stan Goff
#154. So here I am, a white man telling Black children to not give white people the benefit of the doubt. It's not prejudice I'm giving them, it's survival. Don't talk to strangers. Don't trust white folk you don't know. Don't trust cops. The basics. When Black folk don't want to walk right up and be my friend, I don't take it personally, and I don't get defensive. And I'll tell other thin-skinned white people the same thing. It's not personal. It's survival. Get used to it, and quit whining. #Quote by Stan Goff
Prejudice quotes by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
#155. When you assume the goodness in one group is an exception but believe the goodness in your group is the norm, you're probably being prejudiced. #Quote by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
Prejudice quotes by Christian Rudder
#156. prejudice unchallenged is prejudice perpetuated. #Quote by Christian Rudder
Prejudice quotes by Daley Thompson
#157. If you work hard in real life, people tend to get in your way - either from inertia or prejudice - and they stop you achieving things. It's the worst thing about real life compared with sports, where you generally get what you deserve: if you're the fastest guy, you win; there are no other games being played. #Quote by Daley Thompson
Prejudice quotes by Peter Sloterdijk
#158. In truth, philosophy is the mode of thought shaped by the most radical form of prejudice: the passion of being-in-the-world. With the sole exception of specialists in the field, virtually everyone senses that anything which offers less than this passion play remains philosophically trivial. Cultural anthropologists suggest the appealing term 'deep play' for the comprehensively absorbing preoccupations of human beings. From the perspective of a theory of the practising life we would add: the deep plays are those which are moved by the heights. #Quote by Peter Sloterdijk
Prejudice quotes by Jennifer Paynter
#159. I knew it was Peter playing. I fancied he was trying to tell me something - an absurd idea, but it persisted - 'I may not be able to spell, but just you listen to this. #Quote by Jennifer Paynter

#161. If we dismiss from our minds the prejudice we may have against the Indians we shall be able to more clearly understand the impulses that govern both races. #Quote by Nelson A. Miles
Prejudice quotes by Bayard Rustin
#162. It occurred to me shortly after that that it was an absolute necessity for me to declare homosexuality, because if I didn't I was a part of the prejudice. I was aiding and abetting the prejudice that was a part of the effort to destroy me. #Quote by Bayard Rustin
Prejudice quotes by T.J. Klune
#163. Just because you don't experience prejudice in your everyday doesn't stop it from existing for the rest of us. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Prejudice quotes by Gore Vidal

Prejudice quotes by Nelson Mandela
#165. A man who takes away another man's freedom is a prisoner of hatred, he is locked behind the bars of prejudice and narrow mindedness. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Prejudice quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#166. For [Jane Austen and the readers of Pride and Prejudice], as for Mr. Darcy, [Elizabeth Bennett's] solitary walks express the independence that literally takes the heroine out of the social sphere of the houses and their inhabitants, into a larger, lonelier world where she is free to think: walking articulates both physical and mental freedom. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Prejudice quotes by Kimberley Nixon
#167. I thought every other kid was like me. I'd watch films and act them out on my own and wish I could be one of the actresses. When I saw 'Pride And Prejudice,' the one with Colin Firth, I just absolutely knew that was what I wanted to do, and for 'Cranford' to be my first job was poetic, really. #Quote by Kimberley Nixon
Prejudice quotes by Timothy Dolan
#168. Neither I nor anyone in the Church would ever tolerate hatred of or prejudice towards any of the Lord's children. #Quote by Timothy Dolan
Prejudice quotes by Angelica Hopes
#169. Wagging tongues from prejudiced, sophisticated facade of show-off people can never blemish any honest, genuine, golden heart. #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Prejudice quotes by Anonymous
#170. If indeed you [really] fulfill the royal Law in accordance with the Scripture, You shall love your neighbor as [you love] yourself, you do well. [Lev. 19:18.] 9 But if you show servile regard (prejudice, favoritism) for people, you commit sin and are rebuked and convicted by the Law as violators and offenders. 10 For whosoever keeps the Law [as a] whole but stumbles and offends in one [single instance] has become guilty of [breaking] all of it. 11 For He Who said, You shall not commit adultery, also said, You shall not kill. If you do not commit adultery but do kill, you have become guilty of transgressing the [whole] Law. [Exod. 20:13, 14; Deut. 5:17, 18.] 12 So speak and so act as [people should] who are to be judged under the law of liberty [the moral instruction given by Christ, especially about love]. 13 For to him who has shown no mercy the judgment [will be] merciless, but mercy [full of glad confidence] exults victoriously over judgment. #Quote by Anonymous
Prejudice quotes by Aatish Taseer
#171. For one of the peculiarities about prejudice is that it seems always to speak from the heart; it seems, in some daring way, to be speaking the truth, to be saying what others secretly believe, but do not have the courage to say themselves. And the man who speaks against prejudice can often come to seem like the peddler of shopworn banalities, while the voice of prejudice can seem bold and original; a lone voice with the power to drown out others, the power to subdue. #Quote by Aatish Taseer
Prejudice quotes by Laura Bates
#172. The incidents that go unwitnessed definitely help to keep sexism off the radar, and unacknowledged problem we don't discuss. But so too do the regular occurrences that hide in plain sight, within a society that has normalized sexism and allowed it to become so ingrained that we no longer notice or object to it. Sexism is a socially acceptable prejudice and everybody is getting in on the act. #Quote by Laura Bates
Prejudice quotes by Virginia Woolf
#173. Thus, towards the end of the eighteenth century a change came about which, if I were rewriting history, I should describe more fully and think of greater importance than the Crusades or the Wars of the Roses. The middle-class woman began to write. For if Pride and Prejudice matters, and Middlemarch and Villette and Wuthering Heights matter, then it matters far more than I can prove in an hour's discourse that women generally, and not merely the lonely aristocrat shut up in her country house among her folios and her flatterers, took to writing. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Prejudice quotes by Maria Montessori
#174. A new education from birth onwards must be built up. Education must be reconstructed and based on the law of nature and not on the preconceived notions and prejudices of adult society. #Quote by Maria Montessori
Prejudice quotes by Carrie Chapman Catt
#175. What is prejudice? An opinion, which is not based upon reason; a judgment, without having heard the argument; a feeling, without being able to trace from whence it came. #Quote by Carrie Chapman Catt
Prejudice quotes by Hugo Black
#176. The Court stands against any winds that blow as havens of refuge for those who might otherwise suffer because they are helpless, weak, outnumbered, or because they are nonconforming victims of prejudice or public excitement. #Quote by Hugo Black
Prejudice quotes by Anne Bronte
#177. Such humble talents as God had given me I will endeavour to put to their greatest use; if I am able to amuse, I will try to benefit too; and when I fell it my duty to speak unpalatable truth, with the help of God, I will speak it, through it be to the prejudice of my name and to the detriment of my reader's immediate pleasure as well as my own. #Quote by Anne Bronte
Prejudice quotes by Gordon W. Allport
#178. A prejudice, unlike a simple misconception, is actively resistant to all evidence that would unseat it. #Quote by Gordon W. Allport
Prejudice quotes by Jeffrey Ford
#179. I hold no preconceived prejudice against anyone," he'd said, "because to do so is utter folly for someone in my line of work. It's only ignorance that causes individuals to label an entire race as either good or bad. These are generalities so broad as to be both worthless and dangerous. I deal only in specifics. God as they say, is in the details. I must focus on the unique traits of the individual in order to tailor an illusion that will ultimately enchant. To see others in this manner is to never give in to labeling. To fail to do this is the equivalent of putting on a blindfold. Do you understand? The devil is in the details. #Quote by Jeffrey Ford
Prejudice quotes by Harper Lee
#180. But in the absence of eye-witness there's always a doubt, sometimes only the shadow of a doubt. The law says 'reasonable doubt', but I think a defendant's entitled to the shadow of doubt. There's always the possibility, no matter how improbable, that he's innocent. #Quote by Harper Lee
Prejudice quotes by Rahul Kanakia
#181. If being forced to read Pride and Prejudice in the tenth grade had taught me anything, it's that I actually needed two guys: a stolid, mildly rude one - Aakash - and a dangerous-but-charming one. In the end, I'd go for the former, of course. #Quote by Rahul Kanakia
Prejudice quotes by Virginia Cary Hudson
#182. It is important that early in life you choose companionable prejudices, for the fact is that they are likely to stay with you for a lifetime. #Quote by Virginia Cary Hudson
Prejudice quotes by Dodie Smith
#183. But some characters in books are really real
Jane Austen's are; and I know those five Bennets at the opening of Pride and Prejudice, simply waiting to raven the young men at Netherfield Park, are not giving one thought to the real facts of marriage. #Quote by Dodie Smith
Prejudice quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#184. Logic is not satisfied with assertion. It cares nothing for the opinions of the great; nothing for the prejudices of the many, and least of all for the superstitions of the dead. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Prejudice quotes by Charles Bukowski
#185. Love is a form of prejudice. I have too many other prejudices. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Prejudice quotes by Remy De Gourmont
#186. Man associates ideas not according to logic or verifiable exactitude, but according to his pleasure and interests. It is for this reason that most truths are nothing but prejudices. #Quote by Remy De Gourmont
Prejudice quotes by J.K. Rowling
#187. Giants. They can't all be horrible. . . . It's the same sort of prejudice that people have toward werewolves. . . . It's just bigotry, isn't it? #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Prejudice quotes by Sir Fulke Greville
#188. Removing prejudices is, alas! too often removing the boundary of a delightful near prospect in order to let in a shockingly extensive one. #Quote by Sir Fulke Greville
Prejudice quotes by Jane Austen
#189. An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do. #Quote by Jane Austen
Prejudice quotes by Walter Lippmann
#190. The emancipated woman has to fight something worse than the crusted prejudices of her uncles; she has to fight the bewilderment in her own soul. #Quote by Walter Lippmann
Prejudice quotes by Mooji
#191. Let the world call you lazy for not running about like a frightened ghost. Just be quiet inside yourself. Don't bother about knowing how things should be and simply begin observing without prejudice, projections or desires. Notice how life flows of its own accord. Nothing here is a chaos, but a harmony. You are already inside this flow. #Quote by Mooji
Prejudice quotes by Harry Truman
#192. I think one man is just as good as another so long as he's not a nigger or a Chinaman. Uncle Will says that the Lord made a White man from dust, a nigger from mud, then He threw up what was left and it came down a Chinaman. He does hate Chinese and Japs. So do I. It is race prejudice, I guess. But I am strongly of the opinion Negroes ought to be in Africa, Yellow men in Asia and White men in Europe and America. #Quote by Harry Truman
Prejudice quotes by Anne Lamott
#193. I find most famous Christians to be full of themselves and of prejudice and self-loathing, masquerading as devout religious belief. I find all fundamentalism to be terrifying and very destructive. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Prejudice quotes by Mark Twain
#194. The very ink with which history is written is merely fluid prejudice. #Quote by Mark Twain
Prejudice quotes by Don King
#195. Hypocrisy is the mother of all evil and racial prejudice is still her favourite child. #Quote by Don King
Prejudice quotes by Gene Robinson
#196. Jesus was consistently on the side of those who were outcast by society and bore the unfair burden of disdain, discrimination, and prejudice. It is likely that he would look at modern-day lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and hold real sympathy for them and their plight. He would have understood the implications of a system set up to benefit the heterosexual majority over the homosexual minority. It is hard to imagine Jesus joining in the wholesale discrimination against LGBT people. Isn't it logical that he would be sympathetic to young gay teens who take their own lives rather than live with the stigma attached to their sexual orientation? Would he not be found speaking a word of support, encouragement, and hope to them? Would he not be seeking a change in the hearts of those who treat them as outcasts? #Quote by Gene Robinson
Prejudice quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#197. Prejudice - a vagrant opinion without visible means of support. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Prejudice quotes by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
#198. The one and only formative power given to man Is thought. By his thinking he not only makes character, but body and affairs, for as he thinketh within himself, so is he. Prejudice is a mist, which in our journey through the world often dims the brightest and obscures the best of all the good and glorious objects that meet us on our way. #Quote by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
Prejudice quotes by Ann M. Martin
#199. When you take fright and add to it ignorance, you get hatred. That's a very unattractive equation. #Quote by Ann M. Martin
Prejudice quotes by John Charles Pollock
#200. In youth his mind had been closed, for every prejudice of upbringing was a disinfectant against pagan ideas. He now had an even more satisfying answer to the puzzles of human strivings and destiny. Paganism at its philosophical best would appear a gluttering candle to a man who had followed the Light of the World, and more usually it was idolatry, mixed with license. #Quote by John Charles Pollock
