Prejudice quotes
Prejudice
Prejudices are what fools use for reason.

- Voltaire
There are many shining qualities on the mind of man; but none so useful as discretion. It is this which gives a value to all the rest, and sets them at work in their proper places, and turns them to the advantage of their possessor. Without it, learning is pedantry; wit, impertinence; virtue itself looks like weakness; and the best parts only qualify a man to be more sprightly in errors, and active to his own prejudice. Though a man has all other perfections and wants discretion, he will be of no great consequence in the world; but if he has this single talent in perfection, and but a common share of others, he may do what he pleases in his station of life.

- Joseph Addison
Opinions founded on prejudice are always sustained with the greatest of violence.

- Francis Jeffrey
Prejudice squints when it looks, and lies when it talks.

- Duchess de Abrantes
Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.

- Albert Einstein
There are weapons that are simply thoughts. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy.

- Serling, Rod
Whoever seeks to set one race against another seeks to enslave all races.

- Roosevelt, Franklin D.
It is never too late to give up our prejudices.

- Henry David Thoreau
Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.

- Williamson, Marianne
Every political system is an accumulation of habits, customs, prejudices, and principles that have survived a long process of trial and error and of ceaseless response to changing circumstances. If the system works well on the whole, it is a lucky accident -- the luckiest, indeed, that can befall a society.

- Banfield, Edward C.
We are not sent into the world to air our moral prejudices.

- Oscar Wilde
Without the aid of prejudice and custom, I should not be able to find my way across the room.

- Hazlitt, William
Education is a method whereby one acquires a higher grade of prejudices.

- Laurence J. Peter
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
Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices - just recognize them.

- Edward R. Murrow
The one and only formative power given to man Is thought. By his thinking he not only makes character, but body and affairs, for as he thinketh within himself, so is he. Prejudice is a mist, which in our journey through the world often dims the brightest and obscures the best of all the good and glorious objects that meet us on our way.

- Shaftesbury, Lord
Firm, faithful, and devoted, full of energy and zeal, and truth, he labors for his race; he clears their painful way to improvement; he hews down like a giant the prejudices of creed and caste that encumber it. He may be stern; he may be exacting; he may be ambitious yet; but his is the sternness of the warrior Greatheart, who guards his pilgrim convoy from the onslaught of Apollyon. His is the exaction of the apostle, who speaks but for Christ, when he says, Whosoever will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. His is the ambition of the high master-spirit, which aims to fill a place in the first rank of those who are redeemed from the earth -- who stand without fault before the throne of God, who share the last mighty victories of the Lamb, who are called, and chosen, and faithful.

- Bronte, Charlotte
Automobiles are free of egotism, passion, prejudice and stupid ideas about where to have dinner. They are, literally, selfless. A world designed for automobiles instead of people would have wider streets, larger dining rooms, fewer stairs to climb and no smelly, dangerous subway stations.

- O'Rourke, P. J.
I don't like principles. I prefer prejudices.

- Oscar Wilde
Error always addresses the passions and prejudices; truth scorns such mean intrigue, and only addresses the understanding and the conscience.

- Azel Backus
