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 locks the mind. Nothing can enter. Nothing true can escape.gerry spence
Though one eye may be very agreeable, yet as the Prejudice has always run in favour of two, I would not wish to affect a singularity in that article.Richard Brinsley Sheridan
America could carry on a two years' war by the confiscation of the property of disaffected persons, and be made happy by their expulsion. Say not that this is revenge, call it rather the soft resentment of a suffering people, who, having no object in view but the good of all, have staked their own all upon a seemingly doubtful event. Yet it is folly to argue against determined hardness; eloquence may strike the ear, and the language of sorrow draw forth the tear of compassion, but nothing can reach the heart that is steeled with Prejudice.thomas paine
Travel is fatal to Prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.mark twain
There are many more shining qualities in the mind of man, but there is none so useful as discretion; it is this, indeed, which gives a value to all the rest, which sets them at work in their proper times and places, and turns them to the advantage of the person who is possessed of them. Without it, learning is pedantry, and wit impertinence:;; virtue itself looks like weakness; the best parts only qualify a man to be more sprightly in errors, and active to his own Prejudice.joseph addison
There is no salvation till they have seen their basic Prejudice.anthony de mello
The ideas survived and they can now be said to be in agreement with reason. They survived because Prejudice, passion, conceit, errors, sheer pigheadedness, in short because all the elements that characterize the context of discovery, opposed the dictates of reason and because these irrational elements were permitted to have their way. To express it differently: Copernicanism and other "rational" views exist today only because reason was overruled at some time in their past. (The opposite is also true: witchcraft and other "irrational" views had ceased to be influential only because reason was overruled at some time in their past.)paul karl feyerabend
Whenever you have a possibility of going in two ways, either for peace or for war, for peaceful methods of for military methods, in the present age there is a strong Prejudice for the peaceful ones. War seldom ever leads to good results.george f. kennan
In an essay 10 years ago, I pointed out that it is utterly logical for polygamy rights to follow gay rights. After all, if traditional marriage is defined as the union of (1) two people of (2) opposite gender, and if, as advocates of gay marriage insist, the gender requirement is nothing but Prejudice, exclusion and an arbitrary denial of one's autonomous choices in love, then the first requirement – the number restriction (two and only two) – is a similarly arbitrary, discriminatory and indefensible denial of individual choice.charles krauthammer
The Prejudice against color, of which we hear so much, is no stronger than that against sex. It is produced by the same cause, and manifested very much in the same way. The negro's skin and the woman's sex are both prima facie evidence that they were intended to be in subjection to the white Saxon man.elizabeth cady stanton
Try to imagine a man setting out for the day without a single Prejudice. … Inevitably he would be in a state of paralysis. He could not get up in the morning, or choose his necktie, or make his way to the office, … or, to come right down to the essence of the thing, even maintain his identity.richard weaver
Passion and Prejudice govern the world; only under the name of reason . It is our part, by religion and reason joined, to counteract them all we can.john wesley
It should not Prejudice my voice that I'm not born a man, if I say something advantageous to the present situation. For I'm taxed too, and as a toll provide men for the nation.
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.
Remember, when the judgment's weak, the Prejudice is strong.
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
As regards Providence, he cannot shake off the Prejudice that in war, God is on the side of the big battalions, which at present are in the enemy's camp.
