Apathy quotes and quotations

Well, people got attatched. Once you cut the umbilical cord they attatched to the other things. Sight, sound, sex, money, mirages, mothers, masturbation, murder, and Monday morning hangovers.
Charles Bukowski

Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all -- the apathy of human beings.
Helen Keller

Truth is not only violated by falsehood; it may be equally outraged by silence.
Henri Frederic Amiel

Some people confuse acceptance with apathy, but there's all the difference in the world. Apathy fails to distinguish between what can and what cannot be helped; acceptance makes that distinction. Apathy paralyzes the will-to-action; acceptance frees it by relieving it of impossible burdens.
Arthur Gordon

Instead of saying that man is the creature of circumstance, it would be nearer the mark to say that man is the architect of circumstance.
Thomas Carlyle

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Love is bullshit. Emotion is bullshit. I am a rock. A jerk. I'm an uncaring asshole and proud of it.
Chuck Palahniuk

That only a few, under any circumstances, protest against the injustice of long-established laws and customs, does not disprove the fact of the oppressions, while the satisfaction of the many, if real only proves their apathy and deeper degradation.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton

The only kind of dignity which is genuine is that which is not diminished by the indifference of others.
Dag Hammarskjold

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problems.
Mohandas Gandhi

Is it ignorance or apathy? Hey, I don't know and I don't care.
Jimmy Buffett

So much attention is paid to the aggressive sins, such as violence and cruelty and greed with all their tragic effects, that too little attention is paid to the passive sins, such as apathy and laziness, which in the long run can have a more devastating effect.
Eleanor Roosevelt

By far the most dangerous foe we have to fight is apathy - indifference from whatever cause, not from a lack of knowledge, but from carelessness, from absorption in other pursuits, from a contempt bred of self satisfaction
William Osler

My generation's apathy. I'm disgusted with it. I'm disgusted with my own apathy too, for being spineless and not always standing up against racism, sexism and all those other -isms the counterculture has been whinning about for years.
Kurt Cobain quotes

Apathy is the glove into which evil slips its hand.
Bodie Thoene

The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead.
William Lloyd Garrison

Apathy is a sort of living oblivion.
Horace Greeley

The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.
Plato

The death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment.
Robert M. Hutchins

You can kill a lifetime without feeling anything but skin.
Chuck Palahniuk
