Prejudice quotes
Prejudice
I believe I have no prejudices whatsoever. All I need to know is that a man is a member of the human race. That's bad enough for me.

- Mark Twain
Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices -- just recognize them.

- Murrow, Edward R.
If we were to wake up some morning and find that everyone was the same race, creed and color, we would find some other cause for prejudice by noon.

- George Aiken
Bad artists always admire each other's work. They call it being large-minded and free from prejudice. But a truly great artist cannot conceive of life being shown, or beauty fashioned, under any conditions other than those he has selected.

- Wilde, Oscar
The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices -- to be found in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all its own -- for the children and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.

- Rod Serling
America owes most of its social prejudices to the exaggerated religious opinions of the different sects which were so instrumental in establishing the colonies.

- Cooper, James F.
Prejudice squints when it looks and lies when it talks.

- Abrantes, Duchess
Opinions founded on prejudice are always sustained with the greatest of violence.

- Francis Jeffrey
Man associates ideas not according to logic or verifiable exactitude, but according to his pleasure and interests. It is for this reason that most truths are nothing but prejudices.

- Gourmont, Remy De
Stupidity, outrage, vanity, cruelty, iniquity, bad faith, falsehood -- we fail to see the whole array when it is facing in the same direction as we.

- Rostand, Jean
The most learned are often the most narrow minded.

- Hazlitt, William
We still live in a world in which a significant fraction of people, including women, believe that a woman belongs and wants to belong exclusively in the home.

- Sussman, Rosalyn
Prejudice is ignorance.

- Michael Jackson
God, who has been very good to us, will be more good, if we allow Him! Worldly-minded people think they can manage so much better than God. We must trust. Our weapons must be prayer and faith, and our only standard the Bible. As soon as we leave these weapons and take to "knowledge of the world," and other people's clumsy prejudices as our guides, we must inevitably be beaten by the World, which knows how to use its own arms better than we do. What else is meant by becoming as a little child?

- MS. Letter. 1843.
Youth enters the world with very happy prejudices in her own favor. She imagines herself not only certain of accomplishing every adventure, but of obtaining those rewards which the accomplishment may deserve. She is not easily persuaded to believe that the force of merit can be resisted by obstinacy and avarice, or its luster darkened by envy and malignity.

- Johnson, Samuel
Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society.

- Benjamin Franklin
It is clear that all verbal structures with meaning are verbal imitations of that elusive psychological and physiological process known as thought, a process stumbling through emotional entanglements, sudden irrational convictions, involuntary gleams of insight, rationalized prejudices, and blocks of panic and inertia, finally to reach a completely incommunicable intuition.

- Frye, Northrop
There are, in every age, new errors to be rectified and new prejudices to be opposed.

- Samuel Johnson
Two things reduce prejudice: education and laughter.

- Peter, Laurence J.
Prejudice and self-sufficiency naturally proceed from inexperience of the world, and ignorance of mankind.

- Addison, Joseph
