Privilege quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#1. The only thing that [Amaranta] did not keep in mind in her fearsome plan was that in spite of her pleas to God she might die before Rebeca. That was, in fact, what happened. At the final moment, however, Amaranta did not feel frustrated, but, on the contrary, free of all bitterness because death had awarded her the privilege of announcing itself several years ahead of time. She saw it on one burning afternoon sewing with her on the porch a short time after Meme had left for school. She saw it because it was a woman dressed in blue with long hair, with a sort of antiquated look, and with a certain resemblance to Pilar Ternera during the time when she had helped with the chores in the kitchen. Fernanda was present several times and did not see her, in spite of the fact that she was so real – so human and on one occasion asked of Amaranta the favor of threading a needle. Death did not tell her when she was going to die or whether her hour was assigned before that of Rebeca, but ordered her to begin sewing her own shroud on the next sixth of April. She was authorized to make it as complicated and as fine as she wanted, but just as honestly executed as Rebeca's, and she was told that she would die without pain, fear, or bitterness at dusk on the day that she finished it. Trying to waste the most time possible, Amaranta ordered some rough flax and spun the thread herself. She did it so carefully that the work alone took four years. Then she started the sewing. As she got closer to #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Privilege quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#2. It is the sad privilege of blood relations to love him despite all. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Privilege quotes by Gregory Maguire
#3. Is it only in childhood that we are capable of taking in the whole world?
What does it do to us that we briefly have that privilege? And, then, what harm , when the fund of novelty in human experience runs dry? #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Privilege quotes by Amanda Schull
#4. The work that I have been doing on television has been important to me because I have had the opportunity to portray very strong, intelligent women. It has been such a privilege to depict a woman that is independent, unapologetic, and resilient on both shows. #Quote by Amanda Schull
Privilege quotes by Peter Drucker
#5. I would hope that American managers-indeed, managers worldwide-continue to appreciate what I have been saying almost from day one: that management is so much more than exercising rank and privilege, that it is much more than "making deals." Management affects people and their lives. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Privilege quotes by Chukwuka Amu
#6. One of the best things in life is privilege to sit back, relax and look forward to a fresh way to perceive the world around you. #Quote by Chukwuka Amu
Privilege quotes by E.H. Gombrich
#7. The artist gives the beholder increasingly 'more to do,' he draws him into the magic circle of creation and allows him to experience something of the thrill of 'making' which had once been the privilege of the artist #Quote by E.H. Gombrich
Privilege quotes by Desiderius Erasmus
#8. It's the generally accepted privilege of theologians to stretch the heavens, that is the Scriptures, like tanners with a hide. #Quote by Desiderius Erasmus
Privilege quotes by Allan G. Johnson
#9. 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
Privilege quotes by Anton Cermak
#10. He doesn't like my name ... Of course we couldn't all come over on the Mayflower ... But I got here as soon as I could, and I never wanted to go back, because to me it is a great privilege to be an American citizen. #Quote by Anton Cermak
Privilege quotes by Ricky Gervais
#11. Same-sex marriage is not a gay privilege, it's equal rights ... #Quote by Ricky Gervais
Privilege quotes by Rick Warren
#12. Father, I know you're going to do some incredible things in your world today. Please give me the privilege of getting in on some of what you're doing." In other words, church leaders should stop praying, "Lord, bless what I'm doing" and start praying, "Lord, help me to do what you are blessing. #Quote by Rick Warren
Privilege quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#13. His guilt is why Acheron went out of his way to make sure that all of you had servants and pay for your work. The Dark-Hunters owe that man everything, and I do mean everything. He pays in blood every time one of you wants to go free, and he suffers every day so that you can all live your cushy little lives of wealth and privilege."
...
"And I have to say that every time one of your turns on him, it seriously pisses me off. Acheron asks nothing from any of you and that's exactly what he receives. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Privilege quotes by Tim Brown
#14. We can learn that reward comes in creation and re-creation, no just in the consumption of the world around us. Active participation in the process of creation is our right and our privilege. We can learn to measure the success of our ideas not by our bank accounts by their impact on the world. #Quote by Tim Brown
Privilege quotes by Jewel E. Ann
#15. I'd take it from you if I could. You have so much more to live for than I do," she whispered, resting her hand against the side of his head as he continued to sleep. "I forgive you." Uninvited tears stung her eyes. "I know you're going to leave me." She bit her upper lip, hard. "It's okay to go. They need you more."

Maybe someday it would be okay for her to need someone more than anyone else. Then again, maybe she was the ultimate survivor and needed no one. Who could live like that?

"What if I need you more?" AJ whispered, startling Jillian.

Resting her cheek on his back, she snaked her arms around his waist. He grabbed her hands and squeezed them, wringing the tears from her eyes - the life from her soul.

"Then I'm the luckiest woman alive. And I know I am … but not because you're going to stay. It's because I've had the privilege of loving a man that's going to be completely selfless and go home for all the right reasons. #Quote by Jewel E. Ann
Privilege quotes by Nicholas D'Agosto
#16. The business can be frustrating. For me, Omaha is a rounding foundation. I was raised in a very faith-filled household, very hardworking. It made me aware of what privilege is. And it's a place I can go back to, spend time with nieces and nephews, celebrate the things that have nothing to do with the hubbub of Hollywood. #Quote by Nicholas D'Agosto
Privilege quotes by Diana Trilling
#17. Privacy, after all, was the most relative of privileges. It was granted us by society under ungenerous conditions, the most fundamental of them that whether for pain or profit, by design or accident, we not call public attention to ourselves. #Quote by Diana Trilling
Privilege quotes by Russell M. Nelson
#18. Education is yours to obtain. No one else can gain it for you. Wherever you are, develop a deep desire to learn. For us as Latter-day Saints, gaining an education is not just a privilege; it is a religious responsibility. "The glory of God is intelligence." Indeed, our education is for the eternities. #Quote by Russell M. Nelson
Privilege quotes by Audre Lorde
#19. It is as hard for our children to believe that we are not omnipotent as it is for us to know it, as parents. But that knowledge is necessary as the first step in the reassessment of power as something other than might, age, privilege, or the lack of fear. It is an important step for a boy, whose societal destruction begins when he is forced to believe that he can only be strong if he doesn't feel, or if he wins. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Privilege quotes by Thomas Perez
#20. It was a privilege to serve as the assistant attorney general for civil rights, a role that allowed me to enforce the Civil Rights Act and help make its promise a reality. #Quote by Thomas Perez
Privilege quotes by Ben Rector
#21. It's crazy to think of myself as a musician. It's ridiculous that I get to do it, and I don't necessarily mean music. Getting to do something you really enjoy as a job is an incredible privilege, I think. I still don't really feel like a musician outside of the actual music. #Quote by Ben Rector
Privilege quotes by Gabby Rivera
#22. It's about women of color owning their own space and their voices being treated with dignity and respect. It's about women of color not having to shout over voices to be heard. We are the dominant force almost all the time. White women are the stars of all the movies. White women are the lead speakers in feminist debates, and it's little white girls that send the nation into a frenzy when they've been kidnapped. ...check your privilege. We're the ones that need to give women of color space for their voices. #Quote by Gabby Rivera
Privilege quotes by Roger B. Taney
#23. It is an established principle of jurisprudence in all civilized nations that the sovereign cannot be sued in its own courts, or in any other, without its consent and permission; but it may, if it thinks proper, waive this privilege, and permit itself to be made a defendant in a suit by individuals, or by another State. #Quote by Roger B. Taney
Privilege quotes by Emily Dickinson
#24. THE MOON was but a chin of gold
A night or two ago,
And now she turns her perfect face
Upon the world below.
Her forehead is of amplest blond;
Her cheek like beryl stone;
Her eye unto the summer dew
The likest I have known.
Her lips of amber never part;
But what must be the smile
Upon her friend she could bestow
Were such her silver will!
And what a privilege to be
But the remotest star!
For certainly her way might pass
Beside your twinkling door.
Her bonnet is the firmament,
The universe her shoe,
The stars the trinkets at her belt,
Her dimities of blue. #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Privilege quotes by Billy Graham
#25. God has given us two hands
one to receive with and the other to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for sharing. #Quote by Billy Graham
Privilege quotes by Arthur Helps
#26. The man of the house can destroy the pleasure of the household, but he cannot make it. That rests with the woman, and it is her greatest privilege. #Quote by Arthur Helps
Privilege quotes by Harry Yoxall
#27. Don't believe stories which you see in the papers about troops asking as a special privilege not to be relieved. We stick it, at all costs if necessary, as long as ordered, but everyone's glad to hand over to someone else. And anyone who says he enjoys this kind of thing is either a liar or a madman. #Quote by Harry Yoxall
Privilege quotes by John Rarick
#28. We hold that the ownership of private property is the right and privilege of every American citizen and is one of the foundation stones upon which this nation and its free enterprise system has been built and has prospered. We feel that private property rights and human rights are inseparable and indivisible. Only in those nations that guarantee the right of ownership of private property as basic and sacred under their law is there any recognition of human rights. #Quote by John Rarick
Privilege quotes by Ed Asner
#29. The free access to information is not a privilege, but a necessity for any free society. One of my favorite things to do as a young man was wander through the stacks of my hometown library. I'd just browse until I found something interesting. Libraries have definitely changed my life. #Quote by Ed Asner
Privilege quotes by Peter Levi
#30. Sings. Hope in every sphere of life is a privilege that attaches to action. No action, no hope. #Quote by Peter Levi
Privilege quotes by Paulo Freire
#31. The oppressors do not perceive their monopoly on having more as a privilege which dehumanizes others and themselves. They cannot see that, in the egoistic pursuit of having as a possessing class, they suffocate in their own possessions and no longer are; they merely have. #Quote by Paulo Freire
Privilege quotes by Brene Brown
#32. 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
Privilege quotes by William Goldman
#33. I think pain is the most underrated emotion available to us," the Count said. "The Serpent, to my
interpretation, was pain. Pain has been with us always, and it always irritates me when people say 'as
important as life and death' because the proper phrase, to my mind, should be, 'as important as pain and
death.'" The Count fell silent for a time then, as he began and completed a series of complex adjustments.
"One of my theories," he said somewhat later, "is that pain involves anticipation. Nothing original, I
admit, but I'm going to demonstrate to you what I mean: I will not, underline not, use the Machine on
you this evening. I could. It's ready and tested. But instead I will simply erect it and leave it beside you,
for you to stare at the next twenty-four hours, wondering just what it is and how it works and can it really
be as dreadful as all that." He tightened some things here, loosened some more over there, tugged and
patted and shaped.
The Machine looked so silly Westley was tempted to giggle. Instead, he groaned again.
"I'll leave you to your imagination, then," the Count said, and he looked at Westley. "But I want you to
know one thing before tomorrow night happens to you, and I mean it: you are the strongest, the most
brilliant and brave, the most altogether worthy creature it has ever been my privilege to meet, and I feel
almost sad that, for the purposes of my book and future pain scholars, I m #Quote by William Goldman
Privilege quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#34. States will invent obscure constructs like "white privilege" and "male privilege" because they are convenient to further the state's ends. They are untestable, unmeasurable, and unprovable, but they sound legitimate to those who consider themselves a casualty of society. Despite the lack of evidence, they put the burden on the white male to disprove the accuser. Since no such constructs exist, no method of defense is possible. #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Privilege quotes by Gena Showalter
#35. It is my job-no,-my privilege-to make the fire become an inferno. -Gray #Quote by Gena Showalter
Privilege quotes by Katherine Soh
#36. In its basic form, nursing can be seen as a duty, but beyond the incessant operational activities that lay the foundation of our daily work, the profession is all about grace. Helping people is a noble calling. It is a privilege to serve my fellow human beings. Fifteen years has seen many ups and downs at the workplace, but I have enjoyed serving the many patients who come into my care, and have prayed for the souls of those who were on the brink of death. #Quote by Katherine Soh
Privilege quotes by Mark Twain
#37. This morning arrives a letter from my ancient silver-mining comrade, Calvin H. Higbie, a man whom I have not seen nor had communication with for forty-four years ... [Footnote: Roughing It is dedicated to Higbie.] ... I shall allow myself the privilege of copying his punctuation and his spelling, for to me they are a part of the man. He is as honest as the day is long. He is utterly simple-minded and straightforward, and his spelling and his punctuation are as simple and honest as he is himself. He makes no apology for them, and no apology is needed. #Quote by Mark Twain
Privilege quotes by Lisa Kemmerer
#38. In Western patriarchal culture, both women and nonhuman nature have been devalued alongside their assumed opposites--men and civilization/culture. #Quote by Lisa Kemmerer
Privilege quotes by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
#39. One of the clearest indications of privilege is the freedom to opt out. #Quote by Jamie Arpin-Ricci
Privilege quotes by Wayne Dyer
#40. Never live beneath your privileges. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Privilege quotes by James Arthur Ray
#41. A person of power embraces challenges in complete gratitude. No matter the situation life may bring, discontent is never justified, rather all is experienced as an opportunity and a privilege to venture and grow. #Quote by James Arthur Ray
Privilege quotes by Melinda Gates
#42. I've never held the view that women are better than men, or that the best way to improve the world is for women to gain more power than men. I think male dominance is harmful to society because any dominance is harmful: It means society is governed by a false hierarchy where power and opportunity are awarded according to gender, age, wealth, and privilege - not according to skill, effort, talent, or accomplishments. When a culture of dominance is broken, it activates power in all of us. So the goal for me is not the rise of women and the fall of man. It is the rise of both women and men from a struggle for dominance to a state of partnership.
If the goal is partnership between women and men, why do I put so much emphasis on women's empowerment and women's groups? My answer is that we draw strength from each other, and we often have to convince ourselves that we deserve an equal partnership before we get one. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Privilege quotes by Noel Ignatiev
#43. If you are a white male, you don't deserve to live. You are a cancer, you're a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He's good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others! #Quote by Noel Ignatiev
Privilege quotes by Eraldo Banovac
#44. There is a simple rule regarding wisdom: those who have a superficial knowledge cannot be wise. On the contrary, wise people have broad knowledge. However, besides the acquired knowledge, wisdom arises from observation and contemplation over a longer period of time. Wisdom is, therefore, often the privilege of older people who have a broad knowledge and respectable experience. Feel free to ask such people for advice. #Quote by Eraldo Banovac
Privilege quotes by Ken Ilgunas
#45. I wonder what Thoreau would have done...[H}is greatest story, I thought, was his life. He knew that anything is possible when you wield the pen and claim your life as your own. But the truth is so few have the privilege to write their own stories. People are born
into poverty without a hope of redemption. Children are abused and damaged. Disease and war and famine and a million other things prevent them from wielding the pen. But for those of us who can, should it not be our great privilege
to live the lives we've imagined? To be who we want to be? To go on our own great journeys and share our experiences with others? #Quote by Ken Ilgunas
Privilege quotes by Winston Churchill
#46. We must beware of trying to build a society in which nobody counts for anything except a politician or an official, a society where enterprise gains no reward and thrift no privileges #Quote by Winston Churchill
Privilege quotes by Deborah Smith
#47. Possibly the best thing about the whole experience is that Kang and I are now really good friends. It's as much of a pleasure and privilege to know her as a person as it is to translate her work. She's been over for two UK publicity tours, which means lots of time to chat on trains etc., and she was hear all last summer for a writer's residency in Norwich, where I got to meet her son too. #Quote by Deborah Smith
Privilege quotes by Viggo Mortensen
#48. Joseph Campbell said the privilege of a lifetime is being yourself. That's his feeling. And I guess it's mine too. #Quote by Viggo Mortensen
Privilege quotes by Vida Dutton Scudder
#49. The worst danger of the mystic is as always a quest of spiritual privilege leading to aloofness from the common lot. #Quote by Vida Dutton Scudder
Privilege quotes by Alfred Bester
#50. I'm treating you like a relative. I don't pay enough for the privilege. #Quote by Alfred Bester
Privilege quotes by Penny Pritzker
#51. I tend to be a person who starts with the presumption that I should trust you until you abuse the privilege, and then our relationship is forever changed. That's a very big line, and chances are it's not going to work if it's crossed. I warn people that this is how I'm going to deal with it. #Quote by Penny Pritzker
Privilege quotes by Nicky Gumbel
#52. Life is a huge privilege and opportunity. God has trusted you with gifts and abilities, which he wants you to use. #Quote by Nicky Gumbel
Privilege quotes by John Allen Fraser
#53. The purpose of privilege is not to place parliamentarians above the law, but rather to allow them to carry out their duties independently and effectively, in the national interest. #Quote by John Allen Fraser
Privilege quotes by Catharine Beecher
#54. When the precepts and example of Jesus Christ fully interpermeate society, to labor with the hands will be regarded not only as a duty but a privilege. #Quote by Catharine Beecher
Privilege quotes by John Liu
#55. I have had the privilege of serving as city comptroller, and I lead 750 professionals in the office, have appointed eight deputy comptrollers ... no one has criticized my management of these 750 professionals. #Quote by John Liu
Privilege quotes by N.K. Jemisin
#56. It is so easy to have principles. Far, far harder to live by them. #Quote by N.K. Jemisin
Privilege quotes by Annie Besant
#57. There is no birthright in the white skin that it shall say that wherever it goes, to any nation, amongst any people, there the people of the country shall give way before it, and those to whom the land belongs shall bow down and become its servants. #Quote by Annie Besant
Privilege quotes by Erich Fromm
#58. Perhaps most trivial talk is a need to talk about oneself; hence, the never-ending subject of health and sickness, children, travel, successes, what one did, and the innumerable daily things that seem to be important. Since one cannot talk about oneself all the time without being thought a bore, one must exchange the privilege by a readiness to listen to others talking about themselves. Private social meetings between individuals (and often, also, meetings of all kinds of associations and groups) are little markets where one exchanges one's need to talk about oneself and one's desire to be listened to for the need of others who seek the same opportunity. Most people respect this arrangement of exchange; those who don't, and want to talk more about themselves than they are willing to listen, are "cheaters," and they are resented and have to choose inferior company in order to be tolerated. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Privilege quotes by Raj Kosaraju
#59. Failure is not an option. It's definitely a privilege for those who try. . #Quote by Raj Kosaraju
Privilege quotes by Marcus Lemonis
#60. It's a privilege and not a right to own a business. #Quote by Marcus Lemonis
Privilege quotes by J.D. Vance
#61. There is an ethnic component lurking in the background of my story. In our race-conscious society, our vocabulary often extends no further than the color of someone's skin - black people, Asians, white privilege. Sometimes these broad categories are useful. But to understand my story, you have to delve into the details.I may be white, but I do not identify with the WASPs of the Northeast. Instead, I identify with the millions of working-class white Americans of Scots-Irish descent who have no college degree. To these folks, poverty's the family tradition. Their ancestors were day laborers in the southern slave economy, sharecroppers after that, coal miners after that, and machinists and mill workers during more recent times. Americans call them hillbillies, rednecks or white trash. I call them neighbors, friends and family. #Quote by J.D. Vance
Privilege quotes by Voltaire
#62. Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too. #Quote by Voltaire
Privilege quotes by Herbert Von Karajan
#63. I have often said to the orchestra, especially to the younger players, 'Do your best, and love what you are doing, because you are allowed to do this thing.' By this I mean, they can do what millions of people cannot do. Many people cannot think of playing music or listening to it until six o'clock in the evening. To be involved professionally in a thing as creative as this is a great privilege and we have a duty to make it in such a way that we can help bring pleasure and a sense of fulfillment to those who are not so fortunate. #Quote by Herbert Von Karajan
Privilege quotes by Angana P. Chatterji
#64. India all too easily forgets its own history under British rule, and the declaration of its freedom fighters that the oppressor does not have the privilege of judging when a people are 'deserving' of freedom. #Quote by Angana P. Chatterji
Privilege quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#65. As utterly irrational as it might seem, the greed within me has the most limited vision I can possibly imagine as it has eyes only for the few things it doesn't have, and it is completely blind to all the many remarkable things that it does. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Privilege quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#66. White privilege is an absence of the consequences of racism. An absence of structural discrimination, an absence of your race being viewed as a problem first and foremost. #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Privilege quotes by Alberto Manguel
#67. Like Petrach's, my books know infinitely more than I do, and I'm grateful that they even tolerate my presence. At times I feel that I abuse the privilege. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Privilege quotes by Helen Roseveare
#68. There really is no cost, only the privilege of serving the King of Kings. #Quote by Helen Roseveare
Privilege quotes by Brian Harris
#69. To be born in Wales, not with a silver spoon in your mouth, but, with music in your blood and with poetry in your soul, is a privilege indeed. #Quote by Brian Harris
Privilege quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#70. It is the privilege of any human work which is well done to invest the doer with a certain haughtiness. He can well afford not to conciliate, whose faithful work will answer for him. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Privilege quotes by Jimmy Chamberlin
#71. It is an honour and a privilege to play music for a living, and I don't take it for granted, not even for a second. #Quote by Jimmy Chamberlin
Privilege quotes by K.J. Kilton
#72. You can't left your happiness depend on external factors.It comes from within you.That is the source of true happiness. Only then can you enjoy the pleasures and comforts of life. Only then can you notice the privilege of a such a life. #Quote by K.J. Kilton
Privilege quotes by J.R. Ward
#73. To his mind, free will was a privilege, not a right. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Privilege quotes by Louis L'Amour
#74. It is my privilege. It is so written. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Privilege quotes by Richard Rohr
#75. Without elders, much of our history has been formed by juniors reacting, overreacting, and protecting their own temporary privilege, with no deep-time vision like the Iroquois Nation, which considered, "What would be good for the next seven generations?" Compare that to the present "Tea Party" movement in America. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Privilege quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#76. Were the offer made true, I would engage to run again, from beginning to end, the same career of life. All I would ask should be the privilege of an author, to correct, in a second edition, certain errors of the first. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Privilege quotes by Michelle Rhee
#77. We are always going to put the best interests of kids above the rights, privileges and priorities of adults. #Quote by Michelle Rhee
Privilege quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#78. Faith is God's way of taking the limitations of our humanity and allowing us the unimaginable privilege of crossing beyond them. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Privilege quotes by Marta Hillers
#79. These days I keep noticing how my feelings towards men - and the feelings of all the other women - are changing. We feel sorry for them; they seem so miserable and powerless. The weaker sex. Deep down we women are experiencing a kind of collective disappointment. The Nazi world - ruled by men, glorifying the strong man - is beginning to crumble, and with it the myth of "Man". In earlier wars men could claim that the privilege of killing and being killed for the fatherland was theirs and theirs alone. Today, we women, too, have a share. That has transformed us, emboldened us. Among the many defeats at the end of this war is the defeat of the male sex. #Quote by Marta Hillers
Privilege quotes by Albert Camus
#80. To decide that a man must be definitively punished is to deny him any further opportunity whatsoever to make reparation for his acts... This right to live that coincides with the opportunity for reparation is the natural right of every man, even the worst. The most wretched criminal and the worthiest judge here find themselves side by side, equally miserable and jointly responsible. Without this right, the moral life is strictly impossible. None among us is entitled to despair of a single man, unless it be after his death, which transforms his life into destiny and admits of a final judgment. But to pronounce this final judgment before death, to decree the closing of accounts when the creditor is still alive, is the privilege of no man. On these grounds, at least, he who judges absolutely condemns himself absolutely. ...It is because man is not fundamentally good that no one among us can set himself up as an absolute judge, for no one among us can pretend to absolute innocence. The verdict of capital punishment destroys the only indisputable human community there is, the community in the face of death, and such a judgment can only be legitimated by a truth or a principle that takes its place above all men, beyond the human condition. #Quote by Albert Camus
Privilege quotes by K.J. Charles
#81. It is my aim, and would be my privilege, to ruin you for all others for a very long time to come. #Quote by K.J. Charles
Privilege quotes by Marvin J. Ashton
#82. Certainly one of our God-given privileges is the right to choose what our attitude will be in any given set of circumstances. We can let the events that surround us determine our actions-or we can personally take charge and rule our lives, using as guidelines the principles of pure religion. Pure religion is learning the gospel of Jesus Christ and then putting it into action. Nothing will ever be of real benefit to us until it is incorporated into our own lives. #Quote by Marvin J. Ashton
Privilege quotes by Dorothy Day
#83. If we had had the privilege of giving hospitality to a Ho Chi Minh, with what respect and interest we would have served him, as a man of vision, as a patriot, a rebel against foreign invaders. #Quote by Dorothy Day
Privilege quotes by M. E. W. Sherwood
#84. The poor are always ragged and dirty, in very picturesque clothes, and on their poor shoes lies the earth of the Lacustrine period. And yet what a privilege it is to be even a beggar in Rome! #Quote by M. E. W. Sherwood
Privilege quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#85. The privilege of a middle-class, stable, bourgeois life is that you can pretend that you are not complicated and project yourself as a solid, uncomplicated person, with refined life goals and achievements. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Privilege quotes by Sigmund Freud
#86. Humanity has in the course of time had to endure from the hands of science two great outrages upon its naive self-love. The first was when it realized that our earth was not the center of the universe, but only a tiny speck in a world-system of a magnitude hardly conceivable; this is associated in our minds with the name of Copernicus, although Alexandrian doctrines taught something very similar. The second was when biological research robbed man of his peculiar privilege of having been specially created, and relegated him to a descent from the animal world, implying an ineradicable animal nature in him: this transvaluation has been accomplished in our own time upon the instigation of Charles Darwin, Wallace, and their predecessors, and not without the most violent opposition from their contemporaries. But man's craving for grandiosity is now suffering the third and most bitter blow from present-day psychological research which is endeavoring to prove to the ego of each one of us that he is not even master in his own house, but that he must remain content with the veriest scraps of information about what is going on unconsciously in his own mind. We psycho-analysts were neither the first nor the only ones to propose to mankind that they should look inward; but it appears to be our lot to advocate it most insistently and to support it by empirical evidence which touches every man closely. #Quote by Sigmund Freud
Privilege quotes by Ronaldinho
#87. Football is a great love because I was born into a family of players and therefore born into football. I'm fortunate to have a style of play that a lot of people like. It's a privilege to be able to do what I like best and in my own way, but I'm fortunate that people like it, and that motivates me even more. #Quote by Ronaldinho
Privilege quotes by Marilyn Monroe
#88. The first effect marriage had on me was to increase my lack of interest in sex ... Actually our marriage was a sort of friendship with sexual privileges. #Quote by Marilyn Monroe
Privilege quotes by Germaine Greer
#89. The crowning insult [of abortion] is that this ordeal is represented to her as some kind of a privilege.Her sad and onerous duty is garbed in the rhetoric of a civil right. #Quote by Germaine Greer
Privilege quotes by Thomas Paine
#90. When men yield up the privilege of thinking, the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Privilege quotes by Roxane Gay
#91. Anger is always reserved for someone else. And yet, I've been in a room with a woman who escaped a war, who lost her father in ethnic cleansing, whose mother burned her hair, whose cousin raped her. "What right do I have to be angry, when I'm alive? she said.

Anger is a privilege of the truly broken, and yet I've never met a woman who was broken enough that she allowed herself to be angry. An angry woman must answer for herself. The reasons for her anger must be picked over, examined, and debated. My anger must stand the scrutiny of the court of law, of evidentiary procedures. I must prove it comes from somewhere justified and not just because one time some man touched my sister. Or because one time some man touched some woman and will continue on and on. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Privilege quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#92. The greatest and most amiable privilege which the rich enjoy over the poor is that which they exercise the least
the privilege of making others happy. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Privilege quotes by George Vecsey
#93. I will always treasure the privilege of writing the 'Sports of The Times' column. #Quote by George Vecsey
Privilege quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#94. I can only see life as this most miserable accident that I have been forced to endure simply because I refuse to see it as the most astounding plan that I have been privileged to engage. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Privilege quotes by Avijeet Das
#95. I am privileged to have your illuminating presence in my life that adds etherealness to my existence! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Privilege quotes by Piers Anthony
#96. What is life, except an ongoing instinct for survival? Nature uses that instinct to make us perform; otherwise we would all relax, and the species would disappear. Nature is a cruel green mother. The survival instinct is a goad, not a privilege. #Quote by Piers Anthony
Privilege quotes by Diana Peterfreund
#97. It never ceased to amaze me how disinterested half the knights were in our own history, in taking advantage of the extraordinary gifts we'd been handed the night we were tapped into Rose & Grave. To them, it was just another privilege they'd been born into, like admission to Eli or their Long Island mansions. Did they have any idea how much more it was to ... other people? #Quote by Diana Peterfreund
Privilege quotes by Oscar Wilde
#98. I am not laughing, Dorian; at least I am not laughing at you. But you should not say the greatest romance of your life. You should say the first romance of your life. You will always be loved, and you will always be in love with love. A grande passion is the privilege of people who have nothing to do. That is the one use of the idle classes of a country. Don't be afraid. There are exquisite things in store for you. This is merely the beginning. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Privilege quotes by Jo Nesbo
#99. Those golden minutes before you are completely awake, when your mind is just drifting, you have no censorship; you are ready to develop any kind of idea. That's when I come up with the best and worst ideas. That is the privilege of being a writer - that you can stay in bed for an hour in the morning and it's work time. #Quote by Jo Nesbo
Privilege quotes by Orson Scott Card
#100. You believe that the kind of story you want to tell might be best received by the science fiction and fantasy audience. I hope you're right, because in many ways this is the best audience in the world to write for. They're open-minded and intelligent. They want to think as well as feel, understand as well as dream. Above all, they want to be led into places that no one has ever visited before. It's a privilege to tell stories to these readers, and an honour when they applaud the tale you tell. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Privilege quotes by Ricky Gervais
#101. Same sex marriage isn't gay privilege, it's equal rights. Privilege would be something like gay people not paying taxes. Like churches don't. #Quote by Ricky Gervais
Privilege quotes by Paul Brunton
#102. Look how the smaller birds greet the sun, with so much merry chirruping and so much outpouring of song! It is their way of expressing worship for the only Light they can know, an outer one. But man can also know the inner Sun, the Light of the Overself. How much more reason has he to chirp and sing than the little birds! Yet how few man feel gratitude for such privilege. #Quote by Paul Brunton
Privilege quotes by Olivia Hill
#103. Most people didn't know that his mother was black. She died when he was three, and his Italian father raised him. He didn't hold that up as some kind of "get in free" card. The reality was, his entire life he walked a tightrope between his two realities. More often than not he took the road of least resistance - his white privilege. #Quote by Olivia Hill
Privilege quotes by Nicky Gumbel
#104. It is only when we understand the transcendence of God that we see how amazing his immanence is, and what a huge privilege it is to be able to enjoy God's intimate friendship. #Quote by Nicky Gumbel
Privilege quotes by Brianna Wiest
#105. It's a great privilege to not know where you'll end up, just where you're headed. It's the only way to get there. #Quote by Brianna Wiest
Privilege quotes by Kenneth G. Ortiz
#106. Smart people have the privilege of acting stupid when they please to do so. Unfortunately stupid people do not have the capability of acting smart when they please to do so. #Quote by Kenneth G. Ortiz
Privilege quotes by Taib
#107. Hatred and grudge are exhausting, self-destructing feelings. That's why I am very selective and choosy of whom I'd hate; as careful as I choose whom I'd trust. I don't give anyone the privilege of conquering and intoxicating the flow of my thoughts or polluting my good mood with boiling, bubbling malevolence and spite. However, I am quite generous with the trinity of forgiveness, apathy, and disdain. #Quote by Taib
Privilege quotes by Dana Rohrabacher
#108. During my 8 years as chairman, I had the privilege to peer into the future to see dynamic citizen astronauts returning to and from the heavens which we can expect in the future. #Quote by Dana Rohrabacher
Privilege quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#109. The poet David Whyte calls this sense of creative entitlement "the arrogance of belonging," and claims that it is an absolutely vital privilege to cultivate if you wish to interact more vividly with life. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Privilege quotes by John Bunyan
#110. The kingdom of heaven is for the heirs - and if children, then heirs; if born again, then heirs. Wherefore it is said expressly, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. By this one word, down goes all carnal privilege of being born of flesh and blood, and of the will of man. Canst thou produce the birthright? #Quote by John Bunyan
Privilege quotes by Farrah Gray
#111. I'm sure you know a lot of people who were born into privilege and amounted to absolutely nothing. We all have greatness within us. So it is really important for everyone to figure out what God put us on Earth to do, and steer clear of the seven pervasive lies that often blindside people. #Quote by Farrah Gray
Privilege quotes by Chloe Hooper
#112. We have to use our freedoms and privileges to see what respite we can give to those less equipped to deal with their challenges. #Quote by Chloe Hooper
Privilege quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#113. Popular privileges are consistent with a state of society in which there is great inequality of position. Democratic rights, on the contrary, demand that there should be equality of condition as the fundamental basis of the society they regulate. #Quote by Benjamin Disraeli
Privilege quotes by James T. Farrell
#114. There was a drugged sanctimoniousness about the sappy-looking birds seated in the lobby. Studs felt that there wasn't a man or a regular guy among them. #Quote by James T. Farrell
Privilege quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#115. It's mind-boggling how many different worlds people live in on this one planet. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Privilege quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#116. And he suddenly realized the meaning of the word 'dissipate'
to dissipate into thin air; to make nothing out of something. In the little hours of the night every move from place to place was an enormous human jump, an increase of paying for the privilege of slower and slower motion. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Privilege quotes by Larry Lea
#117. Every believer may not be called to preach, but every Christian is called to pray. Prayer is our duty. Prayer is our privilege. Prayer, like air, water and food, is necessary for our survival and growth. But many believers regard prayer as an optional activity. #Quote by Larry Lea
Privilege quotes by Jim Drain
#118. I always feel like it is a privilege to be able to be an artist and to be able to exhibit my work all over the world. #Quote by Jim Drain
Privilege quotes by George Orwell
#119. Wealth and privilege are most easily defended when they are possessed jointly. The so-called 'abolition of private property' which took place in the middle years of the century meant, in effect, the concentration of property in far fewer hands than before: but with this difference, that the new owners were a group instead of a mass of individuals. #Quote by George Orwell
Privilege quotes by Ramona Ausubel
#120. The privilege of money, as Edgar's parents saw it, was that you could get yourself into the great wild beauty - the thousand-meter-deep sea, the wide open West, an island inhabited mostly by dangerous animals, and feel alive and real - and then come over the crest of the hill and have someone meet you with a silver tray containing fresh fruit, aged scotch, a cold towel for your hands, and show you to a seat with a perfect view from which to tell the story of your adventure. #Quote by Ramona Ausubel
Privilege quotes by Thomas Watson
#121. To obey God, is not so much our duty - as our privilege; his commands carry food in the mouth of them. He bids us repent - and why? That our sins may be blotted out. Acts 3:19. He commands us to believe - and why? That we may be saved. Acts 16:31. There is love in every command. It is as if a king should bid one of his subjects dig in a gold mine, and then keep the gold for himself. #Quote by Thomas Watson
Privilege quotes by Margaret Atwood
#122. Where I am is not a prison but a privilege, as Aunt Lydia said, who is in love with either/or. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Privilege quotes by Hanna Alkaf
#123. Adults rarely like being told that they don't have all the answers, or worse still, that the answers they do have are all the wrong ones. #Quote by Hanna Alkaf
Privilege quotes by Michele Serros
#124. That's just another privilege for white people, they're allowed to fuck up and they still get the credit and encouragement, especially all these white politicians who start their speeches in shitty Spanish. The crowds always go so crazy! #Quote by Michele Serros
Privilege quotes by Mark Dever
#125. The church has not been given authority to make commandments; it is the duty of the church to obey the commandments already made. It is not the prerogative nor the privilege of any church to modify, minimize or in any way obscure . . . any commandment, of Jesus Christ.8 #Quote by Mark Dever
Privilege quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#126. It is the characteristic of privilege and of every privileged position to kill the mind and heart of men. The privileged man, whether practically or economically, is a man depraved in mind and heart. #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin
Privilege quotes by Elaina Marie
#127. Happiness feels like a privilege to struggling kids, but inspiration feels like home. #Quote by Elaina Marie
Privilege quotes by Ann Leckie
#128. She was born surrounded by wealth and privilege. She thinks she's learned to question that. But she hasn't learned quite as much as she thinks she has, and having that pointed out to her, well, she doesn't react well to it. #Quote by Ann Leckie
Privilege quotes by Emil M. Cioran
#129. Only god has the privilege of abandoning us. Men can only drop us #Quote by Emil M. Cioran
Privilege quotes by Allan G. Johnson
#130. As a system, patriarchy encourages men to accept male privilege and perpetuate women's oppression, if only through silence. #Quote by Allan G. Johnson
Privilege quotes by Sylvia Day
#131. Eva will be impressed, too. Bet you're counting on that heading into the weekend." Damn right. I would need all the points I could earn when I met up with Eva in San Diego. "She's about to go out of town. And you have to head into the conference room before they get too restless in there. I'll join you as soon as I can." He stood. "Yes, I heard. Your mother's here. Let the wedding insanity begin. Since you're free this weekend, how about we round up some of the usual suspects at my place tonight? It's been a while, and your bachelor days are numbered. Well, technically they're over, but no one else knows that." And he was bound by attorney-client privilege. It took me a beat to decide. "All right. What time?" "Eight-ish." I nodded, then caught Scott's eye. He got #Quote by Sylvia Day
Privilege quotes by Louise Penny
#132. In a life filled with great good fortune of health, of creativity, of friends, living in safety and privilege with the loving partner. There was just one bit of misfortune in his life and that was that Peter Morrow seemed to have no idea how very fortunate he was. #Quote by Louise Penny
Privilege quotes by John O'Donohue
#133. It is a strange and wonderful fact to be here, walking around in a body, to have a whole world within you and a world at your fingertips outside you. It is an immense privilege, and it is incredible that humans manage to forget the miracle of being here. Rilke said, 'Being here is so much,' and it is uncanny how social reality can deaden and numb us so that the mystical wonder of our lives goes totally unnoticed. We are here. We are wildly and dangerously free. #Quote by John O'Donohue
Privilege quotes by Ashley Judd
#134. Yeah, I've had the privilege to know a lot of really talented people. #Quote by Ashley Judd
Privilege quotes by Richard Scaife
#135. Basically I am a private individual who has concerns about his country and who has resources that give me the privilege - and responsibility - to do something to help my country if I can. #Quote by Richard Scaife
Privilege quotes by Darnell Lamont Walker
#136. They made you an Amendment and convinced you it meant 'American. #Quote by Darnell Lamont Walker
Privilege quotes by Steve Buyer
#137. Our greatest privilege and responsibility as leaders of the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs is to provide our veterans with a system that cares for their wounds and ensures that they have an opportunity to succeed. #Quote by Steve Buyer
Privilege quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#138. When we hide racism under the guise of 'humor,' we insulate white racist privilege and make a mockery of civil rights. #Quote by DaShanne Stokes
Privilege quotes by Elizabeth Harrower
#139. So they had all had more troubles than she. Did that really make them superior? If two men were walking along the street and a brick fell on one, missing the other, did that make the injured one a better person? #Quote by Elizabeth Harrower
Privilege quotes by Ivan Illich
#140. Schools are even less efficient in the arrangement of the circumstances which encourage the open-ended, exploratory use of acquired skills, for which I will reserve the term "liberal education." The main reason for this is that school is obligatory and becomes schooling for schooling's sake: an enforced stay in the company of teachers, which pays off in the doubtful privilege of more such company. Just as skill instruction must be freed from curricular restraints, so must liberal education be dissociated from obligatory attendance. Both skill-learning
and education for inventive and creative behavior can be aided by institutional arrangement, but they are of a different, frequently opposed nature. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Privilege quotes by Andrea Bocelli
#141. I have had the good fortune of being able to sing with many of the finest voices in the world, and for someone who loves voices as I do, this is an enormous privilege. #Quote by Andrea Bocelli
Privilege quotes by Dave Hickey
#142. Bad taste is real taste, of course, and good taste is the residue of someone else's privilege. #Quote by Dave Hickey
Privilege quotes by Brene Brown
#143. After listening to everyone rumble with both their pain and their privilege, the white woman who wrote the "you don't know me" note said, "I get it, but I can't spend my life focusing on the negative things - especially what the black and Hispanic students are talking about. It's too hard. Too painful." And before anyone could say a word, she had covered her face with her hands and started to cry. In an instant, we were all in that marshy, dark delta with her. She wiped her face and said, "Oh my God. I get it: I can choose to be bothered when it suits me. I don't have to live this every day." I chose to use my social work #Quote by Brene Brown
Privilege quotes by Kaitlin B. Curtice
#144. What does it mean to be Indigenous and to have ties to the person of Jesus without being tied to the destructive, colonizing institution of the church? It is a constant decolonizing. It is a constant longing for interaction with others who, following the Universal Christ, as Richard Rohr calls it, can take on the hope of a decolonizing faith. It is sharing space with Black people, Indigenous people, and other people of color, and letting our experiences shape each other. It means interacting with my white friends, having really difficult conversations, and facing my own privilege in that conversation as well. Deconstruction and decolonization can be partners, along with grief and truth-telling. May we learn from this community that we are called to the bigger work ahead of us, so that, together, we know what it means to return to Mystery that has always wanted all of us. May we do this work together so that, each day that we move on, we are building a future that is made for everyone. #Quote by Kaitlin B. Curtice
Privilege quotes by Peter Shumlin
#145. Single payer means something different to everyone. The way I define it is that health care is a right and not a privilege. #Quote by Peter Shumlin
Privilege quotes by Lesslie Newbigin
#146. A person who wields power cannot see truth; that is the privilege of the powerless. #Quote by Lesslie Newbigin
Privilege quotes by Francois-Rene De Chateaubriand
#147. Every institution goes through three stages utility, privilege, and abuse. #Quote by Francois-Rene De Chateaubriand
Privilege quotes by Hannah Arendt
#148. I'm completely against [feminism]. I have no desire to give up my privileges. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Privilege quotes by Kate Bornstein
#149. Male privilege is assuming one has the right to occupy any space or person by whatever means, with or without permission. It's a sense of entitlement that's unique to those who have been raised male in most cultures - it's notably absent in most girls and women. #Quote by Kate Bornstein
Privilege quotes by David Livingstone
#150. There is a Ruler above, and His Providence guides all things. He is our Friend and has plenty of work for all His people to do. It is such a blessing and a privilege to be led into His work instead of into the service of the hard taskmasters - the Devil and sin. #Quote by David Livingstone
Privilege quotes by David Mamet
#151. They were and are children of privilege ... the privilege taught, learned, and imbibed, in a "liberal arts education" is the privilege to indict. These children have, in the main, never worked, learned to obey, command, construct, amend, or complete - to actually contribute to the society. They have learned to be shrill, and that their indictment, on the economy, on sex, on race, on the environment, though based on no experience other than hearsay, must trump any discourse, let alone opposition. It occurred to me that I had seen this behavior elsewhere, where it was called developmental difficulty. #Quote by David Mamet
Privilege quotes by Judy Frankel
#152. Inviting someone to work for pay is a sacred privilege and a trust. It must be regarded a high honor to be able to give another person work, and neither employer nor employee should abuse this relationship #Quote by Judy Frankel
Privilege quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#153. He didn't object as she took up a place at the head of the tub and dumped some of the tonic into his short hair. The sweet, night-filled scent of jasmine floated up, caressing and kissing her. Even Rowan breathed it in as she scrubbed the tonic into his scalp. "I could still probably braid this," she mused. "Very teensy-tiny braids, so - " He growled, but leaned back against the tub, his eyes closed. "You're no better than a house cat," she said, massaging his head. He let out a low noise in his throat that might have very well have been a purr.

Washing his hair was intimate-a privilege she doubted he'd ever allowed many people; something she'd never done for anyone else. But lines had always been blurred for them, and neither of them had particularly cared. He'd seen every inch of her several times, and she'd seen most of him. They'd shared a bed for months. On top of that, they were carranam. He'd let her inside his power, past his inner barriers, to where half a thought from her could have shattered his mind. So washing his hair, touching him... it was an intimacy, but it was essential, too. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Privilege quotes by Ronnie
#154. Life is a privilege, not right. #Quote by Ronnie
Privilege quotes by Franz Kafka
#155. The worries that are the burden of which the privileged person makes an excuse in dealing with the oppressed person are in fact the worries about preserving his privileged condition. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Privilege quotes by Frederick Douglass
#156. She had been the source of all his wealth; she had peopled his plantation with slaves; she had become a great grandmother in his service. She had rocked him in infancy, attended him in childhood, served him through life, and at his death wiped from his icy brow the cold death-sweat, and closed his eyes forever. She was nevertheless left a slave - a slave for life - a slave in the hands of strangers; and in their hands she saw her children, her grandchildren, and her great-grandchildren, divided, like so many sheep, without being gratified with the small privilege of a single word, as to their or her own destiny. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Privilege quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#157. I was good at being a doctor; my patients liked me. At times people trust you with things they wouldn't tell their spouses. It was a real privilege. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Privilege quotes by Storm Jameson
#158. In what touches their social convictions, most persons do not think. The threat of change, with all it suggests to them in the loss of social and economic privilege, alarms so deeply that they are incapable of unprejudiced thought. They seem to themselves to be thinking, with lucidity and fairness, but since they start from the conviction that change must undoubtedly be for the worse or from settled grief at the thought of losing what is old and lovely, they are doing no more than following a logical sequence of ideas from a false premise. #Quote by Storm Jameson
Privilege quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#159. Creativity is sacred, and it is not sacred. What we make matters enormously, and it doesn't matter at all. We toil alone, and we are accompanied by spirits. We are terrified, and we are brave. Art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege. Only when we are at our most playful can divinity finally get serious with us. Make space for all these paradoxes to be equally true inside your soul, and I promise - you can make anything. So please calm down now and get back to work, okay? The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say yes. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Privilege quotes by Chris Matakas
#160. I have been given the rare opportunity to teach Jiu Jitsu for a living. This is a privilege that I wake up everyday grateful for, and a responsibility that I hold dearly. I understand how rare it is to be employed through a labor you genuinely love, and one which can be used as a vehicle for positive change in the lives of others. Even rarer still, I am often reminded of the quality of Jiu Jitsu I have learned, and the opportunity to have learned it. #Quote by Chris Matakas
Privilege quotes by Brene Brown
#161. What separates privilege from entitlement is gratitude. #Quote by Brene Brown
Privilege quotes by Gary Ackerman
#162. As a state senator and then a congressman, I've had the privilege of trying to do good things for people to whom I owe so much and can never fully repay. #Quote by Gary Ackerman
Privilege quotes by Henry Adams
#163. I would rather starve and rot and keep the privilege of speaking the truth as I see it, than of holding all the offices that capital has to give from the presidency down. #Quote by Henry Adams
Privilege quotes by Marty Rubin
#164. Every bird, every tree, every flower reminds me what a blessing and privilege it is just to be alive. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Privilege quotes by Joni Ernst
#165. You don't need to come from wealth or privilege to make a difference, #Quote by Joni Ernst
Privilege quotes by John Cho
#166. It's really weird to be in more than one franchise because an actor's life is so nomadic, and so it's a real privilege to get back together with people. #Quote by John Cho
Privilege quotes by Gerard Manley Hopkins
#167. For I think it is the case with genius that it is not when quiescent so very much above mediocrity as the difference between the two might lead us to think, but that it has the power and privilege of rising from that level to a height utterly far from mediocrity: in other words that its greatness is that it can be so great. #Quote by Gerard Manley Hopkins
Privilege quotes by Rachel Carson
#168. Knowing what I do, there would be no future peace for me if I kept silent. #Quote by Rachel Carson
Privilege quotes by Bernardine Evaristo
#169. Ageing is nothing to be ashamed of
Especially when the entire race is in it together
Although sometimes it seems that she alone among her friends wants to celebrate getting older
Because it's such a privilege to not die prematurely #Quote by Bernardine Evaristo
Privilege quotes by Joe Darion
#170. It is the mission of each true knight...
His duty... nay, his privilege!
To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go;
To right the unrightable wrong.

To love, pure and chaste, from afar,
To try, when your arms are too weary,
To reach the unreachable star!

This is my Quest to follow that star,
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far,
To fight for the right
Without question or pause,
To be willing to march into hell
For a heavenly cause!

And I know, if I'll only be true
To this glorious Quest,
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest.

And the world will be better for this,
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach the unreachable stars! #Quote by Joe Darion
Privilege quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#171. We can't remember things from our future; remembering is merely the privilege and the beauty of the past! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Privilege quotes by Laura Schroff
#172. If love is the greatest gift of all-and I believe it is- then the greatest privilege of all is to be able to love someone. #Quote by Laura Schroff
Privilege quotes by Mircea Eliade
#173. Symbolic thinking is not the exclusive privilege of the child, of the poet or of the unbalanced mind: it is consubstantial with human existence, it comes before language and discursive reasoning. The symbol reveals certain aspects of reality - the deepest aspects - which defy any other means of knowledge. Images, symbols and myths are not irresponsible creations of the psyche; they respond to a need and fulfill a function, that of bringing to light the most hidden modalities of being.. #Quote by Mircea Eliade
Privilege quotes by J. Don Cook
#174. Through photography and image I have been afforded the privilege of sharing the stories and myths of people's lives with others. The process for me became self-revelatory. It was a process of soul-making, something all humans are engaged in, no matter their endeavor. I saw a part of myself in each person I photographed. I came to realize, through the alchemical process of living, that each life is important, no matter how little that life seems to offer. #Quote by J. Don Cook
Privilege quotes by Simon Sebag Montefiore
#175. The greatest privilege of childhood is to live totally in the present. #Quote by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Privilege quotes by Emile Durkheim
#176. Man's characteristic privilege is that the bond he accepts is not physical but moral; that is, social. He is governed not by a material environment brutally imposed on him, but by a conscience superior to his own, the superiority of which he feels. Because the greater, better part of his existence transcends the body, he escapes the body's yoke, but is subject to that of society. #Quote by Emile Durkheim
Privilege quotes by Paul Ramadge
#177. Something quite special has played out in the picturesque valleys and mountains, towns and villages of France over the past three weeks. For all who appreciate sport, it was a privilege and an inspiration to watch. #Quote by Paul Ramadge
Privilege quotes by Douglas Coupland
#178. Mr. Gunt, Mr. Neal here is a street survivor. We at the airline are honoring the homeless this year, and it was our airline's privilege and delight to offer him the one remaining business-class seat as a token of our faith in the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. With the full authority of the EU air-system code behind me, I order you back to 67E. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Privilege quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#179. To live under the American Constitution is the greatest political privilege that was ever accorded to the human race. #Quote by Calvin Coolidge

Privilege quotes by Sarah Manguso

Privilege quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#182. If by excessive labor we die before reaching the average age of man, worn out in the Master's service, then glory be to God. We shall have so much less of earth and so much more of heaven. It is our duty and our privilege to exhaust our lives for Jesus. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Privilege quotes by Norman Cousins
#183. It is no longer correct to regard higher education solely as a privilege. It is a basic right in today's world. #Quote by Norman Cousins
Privilege quotes by Joseph Alleine
#184. The unsound convert takes Christ by halves. He is all for the salvation of Christ, but is not for sanctification. He is for the privileges, but does not appropriate the person of Christ. #Quote by Joseph Alleine

#186. I know many people on the left are suspicious of words like Americanization. To them, it can sound like a cover for white privilege and warmongering. It suggests arrogance and groupthink. But these connotations are not fixed. It is in our power to reshape them by recalling the best of America. #Quote by Eric Liu
Privilege quotes by Jung Chang
#187. On our way down, we passed a two-story villa, hidden in a thicket of Chinese parasol trees, magnolia, and pines. It looked almost like a random pile of stones against the background of the rocks. It struck me as an unusually lovely place, and I snapped my last shot. Suddenly a man materialized out of nowhere and asked me in a low but commanding voice to hand over my camera. He wore civilian clothes, but I noticed he had a pistol. He opened the camera and exposed my entire roll of film. Then he disappeared, as if into the earth. Some tourists standing next to me whispered that this was one of Mao's summer villas. I felt another pang of revulsion toward Mao, not so much for his privilege, but for the hypocrisy of allowing himself luxury while telling his people that even comfort was bad for them. After we were safely out of earshot of the invisible guard, and I was bemoaning the loss of my thirty-six pictures, Jin-ming gave me a grin: "See where goggling at holy places gets you!"

We left Lushan by bus. Like every bus in China, it was packed, and we had to crane our necks desperately trying to breathe. Virtually no new buses had been built since the beginning of the Cultural Revolution, during which time the urban population had increased by several tens of millions. After a few minutes, we suddenly stopped. The front door was forced open, and an authoritative-looking man in plainclothes squeezed in.

"Get down! Get down!" he barked.

#188. I wrote in a bedroom crowded with ghosts," Brooke Hayward says. "My mother would disapprove, and my father would be horrified. The moral of my book is that you pay for everything. They were rich, accomplished, famous and beautiful. We were drowned in privilege, yet it ended in all this hideous tragedy." (interview from People magazine (May 23, 1977) #Quote by Brooke Hayward

#189. It is a kind of privilege, to witness the darkness. #Quote by Catriona Ward
Privilege quotes by Tamara Hoffa
#190. Uh oh, maybe I'm hysterical. No, the look on his face had been so funny. Did he really think to kiss me into submission? That shit might work in romance novels, but not on me. If he wants to kiss me he'll have to earn that privilege again. #Quote by Tamara Hoffa
Privilege quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#191. Why are you not smarter? It's only the rich who can't afford to be smart. They're compromised. They got locked years ago into privilege. They have to protect their belongings. No one is meaner than the rich. Trust me. But they have to follow the rules of their shitty civilised world. They declare war, they have honour, and they can't leave. But you two. We three. We're free. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Privilege quotes by Aldo Leopold
#192. The land-relation is still strictly economic, entailing privileges but not obligations #Quote by Aldo Leopold
Privilege quotes by Mark Helprin
#193. He felt as if he were paying for the privilege of music with portions of his life and body. But it was well worth it. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Privilege quotes by Beth Ditto
#194. I feel sorry ... for people who've had skinny privilege and then have it taken away from them. I have had a lifetime to adjust to seeing how people treat women who aren't their idea of beautiful and therefore aren't their idea of useful, and I had to find ways to become useful to myself. #Quote by Beth Ditto
Privilege quotes by Joe Rogan
#195. Having the privilege of sitting down and having 3 hour long uninterrupted conversations with hundreds of brilliant people is an awesome perspective enhancer. #Quote by Joe Rogan
Privilege quotes by Mark Z. Danielewski
#196. -what I'm about to ask you I'm not asking you because I'm black, though I still reserve the right to make that a big fucking part of whatever the fuck I ask you, because it's the very fucking least I deserve: do you truly believe a young black man growing up on those streets ever had a fair chance of acquiring the conscience determined and cultivated by a class that, while demanding it of everyone, through legislative action denies anyone of lesser privilege access to its creation? Conscience, like everything else true in this life, is not God-given but world-made. And a world that is unequal in its distribution of privilege must accept that the values it manifests are of its own doing. #Quote by Mark Z. Danielewski
Privilege quotes by David Jeremiah
#197. Share the Gospel. According to the Bible, it is every believer's privilege and responsibility to share the Gospel. If we understand what lies ahead for those who do not know Christ, there will be a sense of urgency in our witness. #Quote by David Jeremiah
Privilege quotes by Mychal Denzel Smith
#198. One of the privileges of not being a part of a marginalized group is believing you can set your own benchmarks for bigotry. #Quote by Mychal Denzel Smith
Privilege quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#199. The proscribing any citizen as unworthy the public confidence by laying upon him an incapacity of being called to offices of trust and emolument unless he profess or renounce this or that religious opinion is depriving him injuriously of those privileges and advantages to which, in common with his fellow citizens, he has a natural right. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Privilege quotes by C. Everett Koop
#200. Life affords no greater responsibility, no greater privilege, than the raising of the next generation #Quote by C. Everett Koop
