Quotations On Prejudice



“What a sad era when it is easier to smash an atom than a prejudice.”

                                                                              Albert Einstein




“There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe



“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”

Maya Angelou

“Bigotry must never be accepted, must always be confronted, and must never become the way of our country. We must always recognize its past and the consequences of its present existence, and we should always strive to eliminate bigotry, in all forms, from the future.”

Charles F. French

  1. How well you put that Charles. I agree with every word. If we can’t join as friends and forget bigotry, prejudice and racism then everyone will fight harder against the other to be last man standing instead of forming a group of mutual protection.

  2. While they are excellent, I would like to add a personal favorite.

    “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 firm there, firm as weeds among stones.” Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855)
