In alchemical treatises, the formula L'Oeuvre au Noir … designates what is said to be the most difficult phase of the alchemist's process, the separation and dissolution of substance. It is still not clear whether the term applied to daring experiments on matter itself, or whether it was understood to symbolize trials of the mind in discarding all forms of routine and Prejudice. Doubtless it signified one or the other meaning alternately, or perhaps both at the same time.marguerite yourcenar
Travel is fatal to Prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.mark twain

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.

In matters that are so obscure and far beyond our vision , we find in Holy Scripture passages which can be interpreted in very different ways without Prejudice to the faith we have received. In such cases, we should not rush in headlong and so firmly take our stand on one side that, if further progress in the search for truth justly undermines this position, we too fall with it."
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.
