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.
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
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
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.
I am delighted to be presenting again. It was always a question of finding the right show to do and Without Prejudice? certainly fits the sock. I think it will cause much chattering.liza tarbuck
Profound as race Prejudice is against the Negro American, it is not practically as far-reaching as the Prejudice against women. For stripping away the sentimentality which makes Mother’s Day and Best American Mother Contests, the truth is that women suffer all the effects of a minority.pearl buck
As for the exhortation with which Mr. ------ closes his letter, that I will not "go down to my husband's plantation prejudiced against what I am to find there," I know not well how to answer it. Assuredly I am going prejudiced against slavery, for I am an Englishwoman, in whom the absence of such a Prejudice would be disgraceful.fanny kemble
I believe all Americans who believe in freedom, tolerance and human rights have a responsibility to oppose bigotry and Prejudice based on sexual orientation.coretta scott king
There is nothing so despicable as a secret society that is based upon religious Prejudice and that will attempt to defeat a man because of his religious beliefs. Such a society is like a cockroach — it thrives in the dark. So do those who combine for such an end.william howard taft
I do not compare the past with the present without a Prejudice for either, but, great as the improvement in country life is in many respects, it seems a pity the old cheap, wholesome dishes have gone to make way for tinned and preserved foods.flora thompson
It is, of course, a common Prejudice that censorship is bad for art and therefore always unjustified: though, if this were so, mankind would have little in the way of an artistic heritage and we should now be living in an artistic golden age.anthony daniels
A man has no reason to be ashamed of having an ape for his grandfather. If there was an ancestor whom I should feel shame in recalling it would rather be a man a man of restless and versatile intellect who not content with an equivocal success in his own sphere of activity, plunges into scientific questions with which he has no real acquaintance, only to obscure them with aimless rhetoric, and distract the attention of his hearers from the real point at issue by eloquent digressions and skilled appeals to religious Prejudice.thomas henry huxley
Though what we accept be true, it is a Prejudice unless we ourselves have considered and understood why and how it is true.john lancaster spalding
The common Prejudice against philosophy is the result of the incapacity of the multitude to deal with the highest problems.john lancaster spalding
A Prejudice may be an unreasoned judgment, he [Hibben] pointed out, but an unreasoned judgment is not necessarily an illogical judgment. … First, there are those judgments whose verification has simply dropped out of memory. … The second type of unreasoned judgments we hold is the opinions we adopt from others … The third class of judgments in Professor Hibben’s list comprises those which have subconscious origin. The material that furnishes their support does not reach the focal point of consciousness, but psychology insists upon its existence.richard weaver
Collusion between two persons, to the Prejudice and loss of a third, is, in the eye of the Court, the same as a fraud.
Purge me, oh Lord, though it be with fire. Burn up the chaff of vanity and self-indulgence, of hasty Prejudice, second-hand dogmas husks which do not feed my soul, with which I cannot be content, of which I feel ashamed daily and if there be any grain of wheat in me, any word or thought or power of action which may be of use as seed for my nation after me, gather it, oh Lord, into Thy garner.
This misplacing hath caused a deficience, or at least a great improficience in the sciences themselves. For the handling of final causes, mixed with the rest in physical inquiries, hath intercepted the severe and diligent inquiry of all real and physical causes, and given men the occasion to stay upon these satisfactory and specious causes, to the great arrest and Prejudice of further discovery. For this I find done not only by Plato , who ever anchoreth upon that shore, but by Aristotle , Galen, and others which do usually likewise fall upon these flats of discoursing causes.
There is no debt with so much Prejudice put off as that of justice.
