We should emphasize not Negro History, but the Negro in history. What we need is not a history of selected races or nations, but the history of the world void of national bias, race hate, and religious prejudice.
I happen to think that the singular evil of our time is Prejudice. It is from this evil that all other evils grow and multiply. In almost everything I've written there is a thread of this: a man's seemingly palpable need to dislike someone other than himself.rod serling
To spread healthy ideas among even the lowest classes of people, to remove men from the influence of Prejudice and passion, to make reason the arbiter and supreme guide of public opinion; that is the essential goal of the sciences; that is how science will contribute to the advancement of civilization, and that is what deserves protection of governments who want to insure the stability of their power.georges cuvier
Eutrapelia . "A happy and gracious flexibility," Pericles calls this quality of the Athenians...lucidity of thought, clearness and propriety of language, freedom from Prejudice and freedom from stiffness, openness of mind, amiability of manners.Matthew Arnold
The reason was the failure of both Japan and China to understand each other and the inability of America and the European powers to sympathize, without Prejudice, with the peoples of East Asia.Hideki Tojo
Liberalism, above all, means emancipation - emancipation from one's fears, his inadequacies, from Prejudice, from discrimination, from poverty.
Common sense is the ability to see things as they are without Prejudice and do things as they ought to be done without influence of any kind.
Prejudice, n. Avagrant opinion without visible means of support.Ambrose Gwinett Bierce
Prejudice is a disease. So is fashion. But I will not wear Prejudice.lady gaga
Ethnic Prejudice has no place in sports, and baseball must recognize that truth if it is to maintain stature as a national game.branch rickey
There is hardly any other sphere in which Prejudice and superstition of the most horrific kind have been retained so long as in that of women, and just as it must have been an inexpressable relief for humanity when it shook off the burden of religious Prejudice and superstition, I think it will be truly glorious when women become real people and have the whole world open before them.karen blixen
Danger is a good teacher, and makes apt scholars. So are disgrace, defeat, exposure to immediate scorn and laughter. There is no opportunity in such cases for self-delusion, no idling time away, no being off your guard (or you must take the consequences) — neither is there any room for humour or caprice or Prejudice.william hazlitt
What seems certain is that Pythagoras developed the idea of mathematical logic... He realized that numbers exist independently of the tangible world and therefore their study was untainted by inaccuracies of perception. This meant he could discover truths which were independent of opinion of Prejudice and which were more absolute then any previous knowledge.simon singh
They began by controlling books of cartoons and then detective books and, of course, films, one way or another, one group or another, political bias , religious Prejudice , union pressures; there was always a minority afraid of something, and a great majority afraid of the dark , afraid of the future , afraid of the past , afraid of the present , afraid of themselves and shadows of themselves.ray bradbury
Pharisaism, obtuseness and tyranny reign not only in the homes of merchants and in jails; I see it in science, in literature, and among youth. I consider any emblem or label a Prejudice.... My holy of holies is the human body, health, intellect, talent, inspiration, love and the most absolute of freedoms, the freedom from force and falsity in whatever forms they might appear.Anton Chekhov
Our great democracies still tend to think that a stupid man is more likely to be honest than a clever man, and our politicians take advantage of this Prejudice by pretending to be even more stupid than nature made them.bertrand russell
A hundred years ago or even a couple of generations ago you do not encounter the sort of waving of the bloody shirt of Prejudice that greets you on all sides now. Men did not profess such indignation that other men had differing convictions and viewpoints. They rather expected to encounter these, and to argue with them as best they could.richard weaver
The power to regulate the disposal of property after death ought not to extend to doing it in a manner tending to the Prejudice of the living.
As several distinguished authors of the present age have undertaken to reconcile the world to the Great Man-Killer of Modern times; as Aaron Burr has found an apologist, and almost a eulogist; and as learned commentators have recently discovered that even Judas Iscariot was a true disciple, we are rather surprised to find that some one has not undertaken to render the family of Hyenas popular and amiable in the eyes of mankind. Certain it is, that few marked characters in history have suffered more from the malign inventions of Prejudice.
All of us, no matter from what land our parents came, no matter in what way we may severally worship our Creator, must stand shoulder to shoulder in a united America for the elimination of race and religious Prejudice. We must stand for a reign of equal justice to both big and small. We must insist on the maintenance of the American standard of living.
Finally, the great question would still remain whether we can really dispense with illness even for the sake of our virtue and whether our thirst for knowledge and self-knowledge in particular does not require the sick soul as much as the healthy, and whether, in brief, the will to health alone, is not a Prejudice, cowardice, and perhaps a bit of very subtle barbarism and backwardness.
It is often said that Anarchists live in a world of dreams to come, and do not see the things which happen today. We do see them only too well, and in their true colors, and that is what makes us carry the hatchet into the forest of Prejudice that besets us.
