Prejudice quotes
Prejudice
How shall I get true knowledge? Knowledge which will be really useful, really worth knowing. Knowledge which I shall know accurately and practically too, so that I can use it in daily life, for myself and others? Knowledge too, which shall be clear knowledge, not warped or coloured by my own fancies, passions, prejudices, but pure and calm and sound; Siccum Lumen, "Dry Light," as the greatest of philosophers called it of old. To all such who long for light, that by the light they may live, God answers through His only begotten Son: "Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find."

- Westminster Sermons. 1873.
The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively, not by the false appearance things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur
Inequality is as dear to the American heart as liberty itself.

- Howells, William Dean
That which corrodes the souls of the persecuted is the monstrous inner agreement with the prevailing prejudice against them.

- Hoffer, Eric
Gold has worked down from Alexander's time... When something holds good for two thousand years I do not believe it can be so because of prejudice or mistaken theory.

- Baruch, Bernard M.

- Kane O'Hara
Remember, when the judgment's weak, the prejudice is strong.

- O'Hara, K.
It's amazing what ordinary people can do if they set out without preconceived notions.

- Kettering, Charles F.
I never approve, or disapprove, of anything now. It is an absurd attitude to take towards life. We are not sent into the world to air our moral prejudices. I never take any notice of what common people say, and I never interfere with what charming people do.

- Wilde, Oscar
Common-sense appears to be only another name for the thoughtlessness of the unthinking. It is made of the prejudices of childhood, the idiosyncrasies of individual character and the opinion of the newspapers.

- W. Somerset Maugham
Two things reduce prejudice: education and laughter.

- Peter, Laurence J.
The latter part of a wise person's life is occupied with curing the follies, prejudices and false opinions they contracted earlier.

- Swift, Jonathan
Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilized by education; they grow there, firm as weeds among stones.

- Bronte, Charlotte
We do not want the men of another color for our brothers-in-law, but we do want them for our brothers.

- Washington, Booker T.
I am prejudiced in favor of him who, without impudence, can ask boldly. He has faith in humanity, and faith in himself. No one who is not accustomed to giving grandly can ask nobly and with boldness.

- Lavater, Johann Kaspar
It is just as impossible to help reform by conciliating prejudice as it is by buying votes. Prejudice is the enemy. Whoever is not for you is against you.

- Chapman, John Jay
I am a Conservative to preserve all that is good in our constitution, a Radical to remove all that is bad. I seek to preserve property and to respect order, and I equally decry the appeal to the passions of the many or the prejudices of the few.

- Benjamin Disraeli
My great comfort is, that the temporary celebrity I have wrung from the world has been in the very teeth of all opinions and prejudices. I have flattered no ruling powers; I have never concealed a single thought that tempted me.

- Byron, Lord
When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bustling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.

- Dale Carnegie
Only as you do know yourself can your brain serve you as a sharp and efficient tool. Know your own failings, passions, and prejudices so you can separate them from what you see.

- Bernard M. Baruch
