#1. The idea that there's good and evil knowledge ... well, that's strictly a religious point of view. Actions can be either moral or immoral, yes, but knowledge can't be labeled that way. To a scientist, to any educated man or woman, all knowledge is morally neutral. - Author: Dean Koontz
Educated Man quotes by Dean Koontz
#2. I hope the time is not far off when I shall be able to unite all the wise and educated men of all the countries and establish a uniform regime based on the principles of the Quran which alone are true and which alone can lead men to happiness. - Author: Napoleon Bonaparte

Educated Man quotes by Peter Kropotkin
#4. They're thinking of turning the peasant into an educated man. Why, first of all they should make him a good and prosperous farmer and then he'll learn all that is necessary for him to know. - Author: Nikolai Gogol
Educated Man quotes by Nikolai Gogol
#5. In the natural order men are all equal and their common calling is that of manhood, so that a well-educated man cannot fail to do well in that calling and those related to it. It matters little to me whether my pupil is intended for the army, the church, or the law. Before his parents chose a calling for him nature called him to be a man. Life is the trade I would teach him. When he leaves me, I grant you, he will be neither a magistrate, a soldier, nor a priest; he will be a man. All that becomes a man he will learn as quickly as another. In vain will fate change his station, he will always be in his right place. "Occupavi te, fortuna, atque cepi; omnes-que aditus tuos interclusi, ut ad me aspirare non posses. - Author: Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Educated Man quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#6. Reddish-brown hair worn shaggy, as if he simply didn't care about style. Which was baffling. Really, what sort of educated man didn't care about style? - Author: Kelly Bowen
Educated Man quotes by Kelly Bowen
#7. The secret of all success is to know how to deny yourself. Prove that you can control yourself, and you are an educated man; and without this all other education is good for nothing. - Author: Roswell Dwight Hitchcock
Educated Man quotes by Roswell Dwight Hitchcock
#8. And when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you. Ahh . . . an educated man. Well, you're not as stupid as you look. Don't quote Nietzsche at me, kid. That German crackpot wouldn't know a real monster if it bit him on the ass. - Author: Larry Correia
Educated Man quotes by Larry Correia
#9. In an age in which the media broadcast countless pieces of foolishness, the educated man is defined not by what he knows, but by what he doesn't know. - Author: Nicolas Gomez Davila
Educated Man quotes by Nicolas Gomez Davila
#10. He [Omar Khayyam] is an atheist, but knows how to interpret in orthodox style the most difficult passages of the Koran; for every educated man is a theologian and faith is not a requisite. - Author: Jorge Luis Borges
Educated Man quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#11. People who know little are usually great talkers, while men who know much say little. - Author: Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Educated Man quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#12. Society highly values its normal man. It educates children to lose themselves and to become absurd, and thus to be normal. - Author: R.D. Laing
Educated Man quotes by R.D. Laing
#13. An educated man is one who has the loves and hatreds together. - Author: Lin Yutang
Educated Man quotes by Lin Yutang
#14. I am not a well educated man except that I have educated myself, and,
because I have educated myself, what I say will not stand up, for lack of recognized authority. This in turn leaves me free to say what I will, in the hope that, like those small forces that do not threaten empires and are thus not fully pursued, the things in which I believe can survive in some high and forgotten place until the power of empire subsides.
And although I know that few will listen to or credit this, I think we are in a lost age, in which holiness and charity have been traded for the victory and penetration of knowledge, though all the knowledge in the world has not brought us any further than where we can go without it even in the outermost halls of grace. I believe that more is to be known and apprehended from the beauty of a face than in delving, no
matter how deep, simply into how things work, no matter how marvelous that may be. The greatest substance of the world is immaterial, the province of the heart, and its study cannot be forced or reasoned. Merely to touch upon the edge of things in parsing their mechanics is to forswear their fullness, for the entry to this fullness lies not in science but in art. I cannot prove this, for it cannot be proven, but I claim, assert, and have seen it. - Author: Mark Helprin
Educated Man quotes by Mark Helprin
#15. Watch a man
say, a politician
being interviewed on television, an you are observing a demonstration of what both he and his interrogators learned in school: all questions have answers, and it is a good thing to give an answer even if there is none to give, even if you don't understand the question, even if the question contains erroneous assumptions, even if you are ignorant of the facts required to answer. Have you ever heard a man being interviewed say, "I don't have the faintest idea," or "I don't know enough even to guess," or "I have been asked that question before, but all my answers to it seem to be wrong?" One does not "blame" men, especially if they are politicians, for providing instant answers to all questions. The public requires that they do, since the public has learned that instant answer giving is the most important sign of an educated man. - Author: Neil Postman
Educated Man quotes by Neil Postman
#16. The educated man is a greater nuisance than the uneducated one. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Educated Man quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#17. One of the marks of an educated man today is to know what not to read
what not to see or what not to listen to. - Author: Ezra Taft Benson
Educated Man quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#18. The expression 'to lose one's faith', as one might a purse or a ring of keys, has always seemed to me rather foolish. It must be one of those sayings of bourgeois piety, a legacy of those wretched priests of the eighteenth century who talked so much.

Faith is not a thing which one 'loses', we merely cease to shape our lives by it. That is why old-fashioned confessors are not far wrong in showing a certain amount of scepticism when dealing with 'intellectual crises', doubtless far more rare than people imagine. An educated man may come by degrees to tuck away his faith in some back corner of his brain, where he can find it again on reflection, by an effort of memory: yet even if he feels a tender regret for what no longer exists and might have been, the term 'faith' would nevertheless be inapplicable to such an abstraction, no more like real faith, to use a very well-worn simile, than the constellation of Cygne is like a swan. - Author: Georges Bernanos
Educated Man quotes by Georges Bernanos
#19. The docotr babu had to be an educated man also. Then why had he allowed Feroz seth to talk to him in that manner? Was education alone not enough? And if not what was the missing part?
Was it because Feroz seth knew how to look angry even when he wasn't? Would her Amit be able to do that? Was that something they taught you in school - Author: Thrity Umrigar
Educated Man quotes by Thrity Umrigar
#20. The mark of an educated man is not in his boast that he has built his mountain of facts and has stood on top of it, but in his admission that there may be other peaks in the same range with men on top of them, and that, though their views of the landscape may be different from his, they are none the less legitimate. - Author: E. J. Pratt
Educated Man quotes by E. J. Pratt
#21. I'm an educated man, the prisons I know are subtle ones. - Author: Roberto Bolano
Educated Man quotes by Roberto Bolano
#22. Only mass education, he used to say, would free my people, arguing that an educated man could not be oppressed because he could think for himself. - Author: Nelson Mandela
Educated Man quotes by Nelson Mandela
#23. Politics, these days, is no occupation
for an educated man, a man of character.
Ignorance and total lousiness are better. - Author: Aristophanes
Educated Man quotes by Aristophanes

Educated Man quotes by Jacques Barzun
#25. A genuinely free and educated man should be able to tune himself, as one tunes a musical instrument, absolutely arbitrarily, at his convenience at any time and to any degree, philosophically or philologically, critically or poetically, historically or rhetorically, in ancient or modern form. - Author: Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Educated Man quotes by Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
#26. It is the mark of an educated man to be able to evaluate a thought without accepting it. ARISTOTLE - Author: Paul Pearsall
Educated Man quotes by Paul Pearsall
#27. The supernatural is being swept out of the universe in the flood of new knowledge of what is natural. It will soon be as impossible for an intelligent, educated man or woman to believe in a god as it is now to believe that earth is flat, that flies can be spontaneously generated, that disease is a divine punishment, or that death is always due to witchcraft. - Author: Thomas Huxley
Educated Man quotes by Thomas Huxley
#28. I'm a highly-educated man, maybe a shocker to some. I have a master's degree. I'm no dumbo. - Author: Phil Robertson
Educated Man quotes by Phil Robertson
#29. The average educated man in America has about as much knowledge of what a political idea is as he has of the principles of counterpoint. Each is a thing used in politics or music which those fellows who practice politics or music manipulate somehow. Show him one and he will deny that it is politics at all. It must be corrupt or he will not recognize it. He has only seen dried figs. He has only thought dried thoughts. A live thought or a real idea is against the rules of his mind. - Author: John Jay Chapman
Educated Man quotes by John Jay Chapman
#30. You can be sincere and still be stupid. - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Educated Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#31. General or specialized knowledge. An educated man - Author: Napoleon Hill
Educated Man quotes by Napoleon Hill

Educated Man quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#33. One (practitioner of science) is the educated man who still has a controlled sense of wonder before the universal mystery, whether it hides in a snail's eye or within the light that impinges on that delicate organ. - Author: Loren Eiseley
Educated Man quotes by Loren Eiseley
#34. We have entered an age in which education is not just a luxury permitting some men an advantage over others. It has become a necessity without which a person is defenseless in this complex, industrialized society. We have truly entered the century of the educated man. - Author: Lyndon B. Johnson
Educated Man quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#35. Tomorrow everybody - or practically everybody - will have had the education of the upper class of yesterday, and will expect equivalent opportunities. That is why we face the problem of making every kind of job meaningful and capable of satisfying every educated man. - Author: Peter Drucker
Educated Man quotes by Peter Drucker
#36. A man may possess a profound knowledge of history and mathematics; he may be an authority in psychology, biology, or astronomy; he may know all the discovered truths pertaining to geology and natural science; but if he has not with this knowledge that nobility of soul which prompts him to deal justly with his fellow men, to practice virtue and holiness in his personal life, he is not truly an educated man.
Character is the aim of true education; and science, history, and literature are but means used to accomplish the desired end. Character is not the result of chance work but of continuous right thinking and right acting. - Author: David O. McKay
Educated Man quotes by David O. McKay
#37. By the end of high school I was not of course an educated man, but I knew how to try to become one. - Author: Clifton Fadiman
Educated Man quotes by Clifton Fadiman
#38. ...rationality can easily unveil the futility of life and lead to depression - as the stereotype of the extremely smart, but world-weary, educated man (often portrayed as a detective, philosopher, or doctor) suggests. As such, the rational worldview has its limits. - Author: Gudjon Bergmann
Educated Man quotes by Gudjon Bergmann
#39. The future," wrote C. K. Brightbill, "will belong not only to the educated man, but to the man who is educated to use his leisure wisely. - Author: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Educated Man quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#40. Ivan Lankowski," said Petra. "The name I'd like to hear is the name of the one who sent you." "One's superior officer is never named. It is a basic rule of security." Petra sighed. "I suppose this proves I'm not in Kansas anymore." "I don't believe," said Lankowski, "that you have ever been in Kansas, Mrs. Delphiki." "It was a reference to - " "I have seen The Wizard of Oz," said Lankowski. "I am, after all, an educated man. And ... I have been in Kansas. - Author: Orson Scott Card
Educated Man quotes by Orson Scott Card
#41. There is nothing so stupid as the educated man if you get him off the thing he was educated in. - Author: Will Rogers
Educated Man quotes by Will Rogers
#42. The educated man pictures a horde of submen, wanting only a day's liberty to loot his house, burn his books, and set him to work minding a machine or sweeping out a lavatory. 'Anything,' he thinks, 'any injustice, sooner than let that mob loose.' He does not see that since there is no difference between the mass of rich and poor, there is no question of setting the mob loose. The mob is in fact loose now, and
in the shape of rich men
is using its power to set up enormous treadmills of boredom, such as 'smart' hotels. - Author: George Orwell
Educated Man quotes by George Orwell
#43. I'm not an educated man, but I've read some history. Every kingdom comes up bloody. Every castle is built on a pile of bones. When I came out here, LA was nothing. Back east I was a gangster, out here I'm god. - Author: Mickey Cohen
Educated Man quotes by Mickey Cohen
#44. People are wrong when they think that an unemployed man only worries about losing his wages; on the contrary, an illiterate man, with the work habit in his bones, needs work even more than he needs money. An educated man can put up with enforced idleness, which is one of the worst evils of poverty. But a man like Paddy, with no means of filling up time, is as miserable out of work as a dog on the chain. That is why it is such nonsense to pretend that those who have 'come down in the world' are to be pitied above all others.
The man who really merits pity is the man who has been down from the start,
and faces poverty with a blank, resourceless mind. - Author: George Orwell
Educated Man quotes by George Orwell
#45. An educated man is thoroughly inoculated against humbug, thinks for himself and tries to give his thoughts, in speech or on paper, some style. - Author: Alan K. Simpson
Educated Man quotes by Alan K. Simpson
#46. The mark of an intelligent and educated man is one who does not really accept the idea of "work". That is to say; he does not accept the process of doing chores every day, that aren't in the least bit interesting to him, just in order to go on living. - Author: Alan W. Watts
Educated Man quotes by Alan W. Watts
#47. Surely knowledge of the natural world, knowledge of the human condition, knowledge of the nature and dynamics of society, knowledge of the past so that one may use it in experiencing the present and aspiring to the future
all of these, it would seem reasonable to suppose, are essential to an educated man. To these must be added another
knowledge of the products of our artistic heritage that mark the history of our esthetic wonder and delight. - Author: Jerome Bruner
Educated Man quotes by Jerome Bruner
#48. I wasn't God's first choice for what I've done in China ... I don't know who it was ... it must have been a man ... a well-educated man. I don't know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn't willing ... and God looked down ... and saw Gladys Aylward ... and God said, 'Well, she's willing.' - Author: Gladys Aylward
Educated Man quotes by Gladys Aylward
#49. ...like many another self-educated man, he attached an exaggerated importance to the knowledge he had so painfully acquired and could not resist the temptation to parade it,... - Author: W. Somerset Maugham
Educated Man quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#50. The truly educated man is not a man who knows a bit of everything, not even a man who knows all the details of all subjects (if such a thing were possible). The whole man in fact may have little detailed knowledge of facts and theories ... but he will be truly in touch with the centre. He will not be in doubt about his basic convictions, about his own view on the meaning and purpose of life. He may not be able to explain these matters in words, but the conduct of his life will show a certain sureness of touch which stems from his inner clarity. - Author: E.F. Schumacher
Educated Man quotes by E.F. Schumacher
#51. I ask you, gentlemen, listen sometimes to the moans of an educated man of the nineteenth century suffering from toothache, on the second or third day of the attack, when he is beginning to moan, not as he moaned on the first day, that is, not simply because he has toothache, not just as any coarse peasant, but as a man affected by progress and European civilisation, a man who is "divorced from the soil and the national elements," as they express it now-a-days. His moans become nasty, disgustingly malignant, and go on for whole days and nights. And of course he knows himself that he is doing himself no sort of good with his moans; he knows better than anyone that he is only lacerating and harassing himself and others for nothing; he knows that even the audience before whom he is making his efforts, and his whole family, listen to him with loathing, do not put a ha'porth of faith in him, and inwardly understand that he might moan differently, more simply, without trills and flourishes, and that he is only amusing himself like that from ill-humour, from malignancy. Well, in all these recognitions and disgraces it is that there lies a voluptuous pleasure. - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Educated Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#52. I can only regard with bewilderment an educated man who is also religious - Author: Anton Chekhov
Educated Man quotes by Anton Chekhov
#53. I readan article by a highly educated man wherein he told with what conscientious pains he had brought up all his children tobe skeptical of everything, never to believe anything in life or religion or their own feelings without submitting it to many rational doubts, to have a persistent, thoroughly skeptical, doubting attitude toward everything ... I think he might as well have taken them out in the backyard and killed them with an ax. - Author: Brenda Ueland
Educated Man quotes by Brenda Ueland
#54. I can hardly conceive of any educated man believing in God at all without believing that God contains in Himself every perfection including eternal joy; and does not require the solar system to entertain Him like a circus. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Educated Man quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#55. We need to teach the highly educated man that it is not a disgrace to fail and that he must analyze every failure to find its cause. He must learn how to fail intelligently, for failing is one of the greatest arts in the world. - Author: Charles Kettering
Educated Man quotes by Charles Kettering
#56. I am not an educated man. I never had an opportunity to learn anything except how to fight. - Author: Pancho Villa
Educated Man quotes by Pancho Villa
#57. Rock Hudson was not an educated man, but that very beautiful body of his was putty in my hands. - Author: Douglas Sirk
Educated Man quotes by Douglas Sirk
#58. A well-trained man knows how to answer questions; an educated man knows what questions are worth asking. - Author: E. Digby Baltzell
Educated Man quotes by E. Digby Baltzell
#59. Martin Luther was a thoroughly educated man but he wore this lightly. His sermons were littered with only examples and improving tales, drawing equally from the fables of Aesop and the follies of life he observed all around him. - Author: Andrew Pettegree
Educated Man quotes by Andrew Pettegree
#60. In the end, science as we know it has two basic types of practitioners. One is the educated man who still has a controlled sense of wonder before the universal mystery, whether it hides in a snail's eye or within the light that impinges on that delicate organ. The second kind of observer is the extreme reductionist who is so busy stripping things apart that the tremendous mystery has been reduced to a trifle, to intangibles not worth troubling one's head about. - Author: Loren Eiseley
Educated Man quotes by Loren Eiseley
#61. Naturally, the educated man does not believe in propa­ganda; he shrugs and is convinced that propaganda has no effect on him. This is, in fact, one of his great weaknesses, and propa­gandists are well aware that in order to reach someone, one must first convince him that propaganda is ineffectual and not very clever. Because he is convinced of his own superiority, the intellectual is much more vulnerable than anybody else to this maneu­ver, even though basically a high intelligence, a broad culture, a constant exercise of the critical faculties, and full and objective information are still the best weapons against propaganda. - Author: Jacques Ellul
Educated Man quotes by Jacques Ellul
#62. The truly educated man will always speak to the understanding of the most unlearned of his audience. - Author: Karl G. Maeser
Educated Man quotes by Karl G. Maeser
#63. ...there are some, both at present and of old, who recognized that Spartanizing is much more a love of wisdom than a love of physical exercise, knowing that the ability to utter such remarks belong to a a perfectly educated man. - Author: Plato
Educated Man quotes by Plato
#64. Bashir paused to watch a live CNN feed ... Bashir was struck silent by the images of wailing Iraqi women carrying children's bodies out of the rubble of a bombed building.
As he studied the screen, Bashir's bullish shoulders slumped. "People like me are America's best friends in the region," Bashir said at last shaking his head ruefully, "I'm a moderate Msulim, an educated man. But watching this, even I could become a jihadi. How can Americans say they are making themselves safer?" Bashir asked, struggling not to direct his anger toward the large American target on the other side of the desk. "Your president Bush had done a wonderful job of uniting one billion Muslims against America for the next two hundred years. - Author: Greg Mortenson
Educated Man quotes by Greg Mortenson
#65. There is not one single established religion that an intelligent, educated man can believe. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Educated Man quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#66. The all-round liberally educated man, from Palaeolithic times to the time when the earth shall become a cold cinder, will always be the same, namely, the man who follows his standards of truth and beauty, who employs his learning and observation, his reason, his expression, for purposes of production, that is, to add something of his own to the stock of the world's ideas. - Author: Henry Fairfield Osborn
Educated Man quotes by Henry Fairfield Osborn
#67. The educated man is the man who can do something. The quality of his work marks the degree of his education. - Author: Ernest Hemingway,

#71. An educated man should know everything about something and something about everything - Author: C.V. Wedgwood
Educated Man quotes by C.V. Wedgwood
#72. An educated man is not one whose memory is trained to carry a few dates in history - he is one who can accomplish things. - Author: Henry Ford
Educated Man quotes by Henry Ford
#73. An educated man believing in a this-that vile sky-god rewarding him-her, but punishing your enemies with hell and fire, is uneducated. - Author: Fakeer Ishavardas
Educated Man quotes by Fakeer Ishavardas
#74. The church knows that an educated man is an unbeliever. That is why there is a continual struggle on the part of the clergy to adulterate education with superstition. To maintain their untenable position they must keep the people shackled to a form of mental slavery. Both fear and superstition are forms of a contagious disease.

The ignorance of man produced natural fears of the elements of nature. What he could not understand he attributed to malevolent spirits whose primary purpose was to punish and harm him. Under this spell it seems almost incredible that he ever advanced from his state of primitive ignorance.

His fears produced such fantastic monsters of the air that it was first necessary to relieve his tormented mind of these terrifying myths of ghosts and gods before he was able to acquire even the simplest rudiments of knowledge.

Man's ignorance and fears made him an easy prey of priests. His gullibility was such that he believed everything he was told. He soon became a slave to these liars and hypocrites. - Author: Joseph Lewis
Educated Man quotes by Joseph Lewis
#75. He felt that he had unwittingly stuck his hand into The Great Wasps' Nest of Life. As an image it stank. As a cameo of reality, he felt it was serviceable. He had stuck his hand through some rotted flashing in high summer and that hand and his whole arm had been consumed in holy, righteous fire, destroying conscious thought, making the concept of civilized behaviour obsolete. Could you be expected to behave as a thinking human being when your hand was being impaled on red-hot darning needles? Could you be expected to live in the love of your nearest and dearest when the brown, furious cloud rose out of the hole in the fabric of things (the fabric you thought was so innocent) and arrowed straight at you? Could you be held responsible for your own actions as you ran crazily about on the sloping roof seventy feet above he ground, not knowing where you were going, not remembering that your panicky, stumbling feet could lead you crashing and blundering right over the rain gutter and down to your death on the concrete seventy feet below? Jack didn't think you could. When you unwittingly stuck your hand into the wasps' nest, you hadn't made a covenant with the devil to give up your civilized self with its trappings of love and respect and honour. It just happened to you. Passively, with no say, you ceased to be a creature of the mind and became a creature of the nerve endings; from college-educated man to wailing ape in five seconds. - Author: Stephen King
Educated Man quotes by Stephen King
#76. I consider an intimate knowledge of the Bible an indispensable quality of a well educated man. - Author: Robert Andrews Millikan
Educated Man quotes by Robert Andrews Millikan
#77. It is the mark of an educated man to look for precision in each class of things just so far as the nature of the subject admits; it is evidently equally foolish to accept probable reasoning from a mathematician and to demand from a rhetorician demonstrative proofs. - Author: Aristotle.
Educated Man quotes by Aristotle.
#78. An educated man must have a "curiosity in exploring the unfamiliar and unexpected, an open-mindedness in entertaining opposing points of view, tolerance for the ambiguity that surrounds so many important issues, and a willingness to make the best decisions he can in the face of uncertainty and doubt". - Author: Derek Bok
Educated Man quotes by Derek Bok
#79. Apart from any other basis which might justify a superiority, education, as a power, raised him who possessed it over the weak, who lacked it, and the educated man counted in his circle, however large or small it was, as the mighty, the powerful, the imposing one: for he was an authority. - Author: Max Stirner
Educated Man quotes by Max Stirner
#80. A decent, educated man cannot afford the luxury of vanity without being exceedingly exacting with himself and without occasionally despising himself to the point of hatred. - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Educated Man quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#81. I happened to see Larry King interview Billy Graham shortly after the shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. I had read an article the previous month about violent video games and their effects on the minds of children, desensitizing them to the act of killing. Larry King asked Billy Graham what was wrong with the world, and how such a thing as Columbine could happen. I knew, because Billy Graham was an educated man, he had read the same article I had read, and I began calculating his answer for him, that violence begets violence, and that we live in a culture desensitized to the beauty of human life and the sanctity of creation. But Billy Graham did not blame video games. Billy Graham looked Larry King in the eye and said, 'Thousands of years ago, a young couple lived in a garden called Eden, and God placed a tree in the Garden and told them not to eat from the tree ... '
And I knew in my soul he was right. - Author: Donald Miller
Educated Man quotes by Donald Miller
#82. I am a great mayor; I am an upstanding Christian man; I am an intelligent man; I am a deeply educated man; I am a humble man. - Author: Marion Barry
Educated Man quotes by Marion Barry
#83. You are an educated man, Old One.'
'What is education besides a conditioning of the mind to a society and a way of life? There are many kinds of education, and often education closes as many doors as it opens for to believe implies disbelief. One accepts one kind of belief but closes the mind to all that is, or seems to be contradictory. - Author: Louis L'Amour
Educated Man quotes by Louis L'Amour
#84. This type of man who is devoted to the study of wisdom is always most unlucky in everything, and particularly when it comes to procreating children; I imagine this is because Nature wants to ensure that the evils of wisdom shall not spread further throughout mankind. - Author: Desiderius Erasmus
Educated Man quotes by Desiderius Erasmus
#85. When the veil of fiction was rent, man shuddered before "Nature, red in tooth and claw." Nature had always been that and always will be, and the hands of man, even when he fashions and defends the noblest civilization, must forever be bloody hands, for this is a world in which only the strong and resolute nations survive, while the weak, especially the morally weak, who babble about brotherhood and peace, are biologically degenerate and doomed to extinction. - Author: Revilo P. Oliver
Educated Man quotes by Revilo P. Oliver
#86. I don't believe in demons and pitchforks. But I think, if you had to define hell, you could take a good man and deny him the rites he believed in, and condemn his soul to a slow process of corruption until it was nothing but a mass of rage and hate and seething evil that his true self would have loathed. I think that would be hell. - Author: K.J. Charles
Educated Man quotes by K.J. Charles
#87. It's really important for boys to have a father around, or a grandfather, or an uncle - a man they can really relate to who loves them, and who they know loves them. - Author: Laura Bush
Educated Man quotes by Laura Bush
#88. Barnet was a man with a rich capacity for misery, and there is no doubt that he exercised it to its fullest extent now. The events that had, as it were, dashed themselves together into one half-hour of this day showed that curious refinement of cruelty in their arrangement which often proceeds from the bosom of the whimsical god at other times known as blind Circumstance. That his few minutes of hope, between the reading of the first and second letters, had carried him to extraordinary heights of rapture was proved by the immensity of his suffering now. The sun blazing into his face would have shown a close watcher that a horizontal line, which had never been seen before, but which was never to be gone thereafter, was somehow gradually forming itself in the smooth of his forehead. His eyes, of a light hazel, had a curious look which can only be described by the word bruised; the sorrow that looked from them being largely mixed with the surprise of a man taken unawares. - Author: Thomas Hardy
Educated Man quotes by Thomas Hardy
#89. The anti-suffragist talk of sheltering women from the fierce storms of life is a lot of cant. I have no patience with it. These storms beat on woman just as fiercely as they do on man, and she is not trained to defend herself against them. - Author: Susan B. Anthony

#92. How cute," Jacob said. "Not the point. That fine, mother fucking specimen of a man is all up in you - oh my God, he's ditched the ra-ra's and is coming over."

My stomach knotted and I prayed to God, Shiva, and Zeus that Jacob didn't say anything that would make me want to kill him later. - Author: J. Lynn

Educated Man quotes by Alice Clayton
#95. But you see how man is also machine, and it suffices to turn one wheel on the surface and other wheels then turn inside: the brother and the enmity are merely the reflection of the fear that each man has of himself, of the recesses of his own soul, where unconfessed desires lurk, or, as they are saying in Paris, unconscious concepts. For it has been demonstrated that imperceptible thoughts exist, affecting the soul without the soul's being aware of them, clandestine thoughts whose existence is demonstrated by the fact that, however little each of us examines himself, he will not fail to remark that in his heart he bears love or hatred, joy or sorrow, while remaining unable to remember distinctly the thoughts that generated it. - Author: Umberto Eco
Educated Man quotes by Umberto Eco

#103. One day on a ranging we brought down a fine big elk. We were skinning it when the smell of blood drew a shadowcat out of its lair. I drove it off, but not before it shredded my cloak to ribbons. Do you see? Here, here, and here?" He chuckled. "It shredded my arm and back as well, and I bled worse than the elk. My brothers feared I might die before they got me back to Maester Mullin at the Shadow Tower, so they carried me to a wildling village where we knew an old wisewoman did some healing. She was dead, as it happened, but her daughter saw to me. Cleaned my wounds, sewed me up, and fed me porridge and potions until I was strong enough to ride again. And she sewed up the rents in my cloak as well, with some scarlet silk from Asshai that her grandmother had pulled from the wreck of a cog washed up on the Frozen Shore. It was the greatest treasure she had, and her gift to me." He swept the cloak back over his shoulders. "But at the Shadow Tower, I was given a new wool cloak from stores, black and black, and trimmed with black, to go with my black breeches and black boots, my black doublet and black mail. The new cloak had no frays nor rips nor tears … and most of all, no red. The men of the Night's Watch dressed in black, Ser Denys Mallister reminded me sternly, as if I had forgotten. My old cloak was fit for burning now, he said. "I left the next morning … for a place where a kiss was not a crime, and a man could wear any cloak he chose. - Author: George R.R. Martin

#108. All my life, I have judged my worth by how much I have been loved by a man. It's so with a lot of women, that their self-esteem is measured by how much they are loved by a man, their partner, their boyfriend or maybe their husband. In my case, it may be because I grew up without my father. - Author: Katrina Kaif

#113. I was going to say, let alone that I might find a mate."
Vic's heart swelled, and in that moment, he knew his feelings weren't simply a case of misplaced lust, that Kellan meant something to him, that he had been led to Vale Valley for more than sanctuary. They might not be able to have a family since they couldn't possibly be fated mates, but that was all right. They'd still have each other.
"Kellan, have you ever been kissed?"
Kellan blinked up at him as he shook his head.
Vic framed Kellan's face with his hands. "Then I think we should do something about that."
He held Kellan's gaze for a moment before descending on him, capturing Kellan's lips with his own, moving them over Kellan's mouth. He kept his touch slow and gentle, imprinting the memory of their first kiss to hold dear in his heart forever. Kellan melted against his frame and kissed him back, his technique clumsy, but earnest. As their exchange heated, Vic wrapped one hand around Kellan's nape and grasped his waist with the other. Kellan opened up to him and Vic dipped his tongue into Kellan's willing mouth, tasting and exploring as much of the sweet man as he could.
Vic slowed the kiss before they got too carried away, still mindful of not overwhelming him. When he broke the connection, he framed Kellan's face again and pressed his lips to Kellan's forehead to seal his intent. They stared into each other's eyes in silence as they caught their breath again.
