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.
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.
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
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
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.anne brontë
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
We now have access to so much information that we can find support for any Prejudice or opinion.david suzuki
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
The great advantage of our system of government over all others, is, that we have a written constitution, defining its limits, and prescribing its authorities; and that, however, for a time, faction may convulse the nation, and passion and party Prejudice sway its functionaries, the season of reflection will recur, when calmly retracing their deeds, all aberrations from fundamental principle will be corrected.henry clay
Some of her answers might excite popular Prejudice, but if there is any principle of the Constitution that more imperatively calls for attachment than any other it is the principle of free thought not free thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate.Holmes, Jr., Oliver Wendell
The education that you give to the upper classes will not uproot idolatry and Prejudice, for it is amongst the masses that the error and Prejudice will always maintain their power, and while you do not uproot those prejudices from the hearts of the masses, a handful of educated Hindus will never be able successfully to reform the country.keshub chunder sen
The present difficulty, in bringing all parts of the United States to a happy unity and love of country grows out of the Prejudice to color. The Prejudice is a senseless one, but it exists.
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.
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.Francis Bacon
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.
