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.
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
Prejudice locks the mind. Nothing can enter. Nothing true can escape.gerry spence
The worst mistake I made was that stupid, suburban Prejudice of anti-Semitism.
Don't liken me to that [SOB]. Anybody that lets his public policies be mixed up with religious Prejudice is a plain [GD] fool."huey long
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
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
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
There is no salvation till they have seen their basic Prejudice.anthony de mello
O that our souls could scale a height like this, A mighty mountain swept o'er by the bleak Keen winds of heaven; and, standing on that peak Above the blinding clouds of Prejudice , Would we could see all truly as it is; The calm eternal truth would keep us meek.robinson jeffers
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
When you are faced with Prejudice, logic and justice are impotent. Still, we may have an obligation to argue directly into the face of the Prejudice, even though there is no chance to win.gerry spence
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
Education is necessary to unlearn privilege, unlearn exclusion, unlearn discrimination, unlearn Prejudice, unlearn war.alfred de zayas
Historicism and cultural relativism actually are a means to avoid testing our own prejudices and asking, for example, whether men are really equal or whether that opinion is merely a democratic Prejudice.Allan Bloom
I don't have Prejudice, I hate everyone equally.
I think that it is a matter of public policy that, so far as is possible, judicial proceedings shall not only be free from actual bias or Prejudice of the Judges, but that they shall be free from the suspicion of bias or Prejudice.
Remember, when the judgment's weak, the Prejudice is strong.
When we destroy an old Prejudice, we have need of a new virtue.anne louise germaine de staël
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.
O that our souls could scale a height like this, A mighty mountain swept o'er by the bleak Keen winds of heaven; and, standing on that peak Above the blinding clouds of Prejudice, Would we could see all truly as it is; The calm eternal truth would keep us meek.robinson jeffers
