Prejudice quotes and quotations

Hebrew Proverb

Duchess Abrantes

Anonymous

Beware prejudices. They are like rats, and men's minds are like traps; prejudices get in easily, but it is doubtful if they ever get out.
Lord Jeffrey

Carlo Goldoni

When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudice, and motivated by pride and vanity.
Dale Carnegie

Friedrich H. Jacobi

A prejudice is a vagrant opinion without visible means of support.
Ambrose Bierce

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

A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.
William James

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.
Remy De Gourmont

He that is possessed with a prejudice is possessed with a devil, and one of the worst kinds of devils, for it shuts out the truth, and often leads to ruinous error.
Tryon Edwards

Sex prejudice is so ingrained in our society that many who practice it are simply unaware that they are hurting . It is the last socially acceptable prejudice.
Bernice Sandler

We are a nation of many nationalities, many races, many religions--bound together by a single unity, the unity of freedom and equality. Whoever seeks to set one nationality against another, seeks to degrade all nationalities.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Ignorance is stubborn and prejudice is hard.
Adlai E. Stevenson

Rigid judgmental opinions can block descent of Spirit's pinions.
Saiom Shriver

The time is past when Christians in America can take a long spoon and hand the gospel to the black man out the back door.
Mordecai W. Johnson

Prejudice is a raft onto which the shipwrecked mind clambers and paddles to safety.
Ben Hecht
