#1. Who would be so base as to pick on a wizened, shriveled old lady, well stricken in years, who has consecrated her entire life to the needy and the destitute? On the other hand, who would be so incurious as to leave unexamined the influence and motives of a woman who once boasted of operating more than five hundred convents in upward of 105 countries - "without counting India"? Lone self-sacrificing zealot, or chair of a missionary multinational? The scale alters with the perspective, and the perspective alters with the scale. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#2. The majority of mankind is lazy-minded, incurious, absorbed in vanities, and tepid in emotion, and is therefore incapable of either much doubt or much faith. - Author: T. S. Eliot
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by T. S. Eliot
#3. Prize not thyself by what thou hast, but by what thou art; he that values a jewel by her golden frame, or a book by her silver clasps, or a man by his vast estate, errs; if thou art not worth more than the world can make thee, thy Redeemer had a bad pennyworth, or thou an uncurious Redeemer. - Author: Francis Quarles
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Francis Quarles
#4. If publishers are here, I've got a feeling they will agree with whatever I say because the publishing houses are packed full of people who love literature and whose hearts are being broken all the time by what happens, by the reign of the accountants.

There is a phenomenon which I call the Educated Barbarian. This is someone who could have been in school or university for many years, could have won prizes by the score, and at the end has read nothing, knows no history, and above all is totally incurious. Quite a large number of my young friends are like this. They're all utterly delightful. We have a wonderful time together. We gossip, we go shopping. We chat about our friends, but at the slightest mention of anything literary their eyes glaze over. Looking back at my misspent youth, I can remember people who were not particularly literary. They were not even very educated, but they would take for granted that they should have read War and Peace. They did not say, "Oh this is so difficult. Oh this is too long and I don't understand the long words." They just read it. That's what people were like then. - Author: Doris Lessing
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Doris Lessing
#5. A straw man can be a very convenient property, after all. I can see why a plenteously contented, drowsily complacent, temperamentally incurious atheist might find it comforting - even a little luxurious - to imagine that belief in God is no more than belief in some magical invisible friend who lives beyond the clouds, or in some ghostly cosmic mechanic invoked to explain gaps in current scientific knowledge. - Author: David Bentley Hart
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by David Bentley Hart
#6. Prep school, public school, university: these now tedious influences standardize English autobiography, giving the educated Englishman the sad if fascinating appearance of a stuffed bird of sly and beady eye in some old seaside museum. The fixation on school has become a class trait. It manifests itself as a mixture of incurious piety and parlour game. - Author: V.S. Pritchett
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by V.S. Pritchett
#7. For to know nothing is nothing, not to want to know anything likewise, but to be beyond knowing anything, to know you are beyond knowing anything, that is when peace enters in, to the soul of the incurious seeker. - Author: Samuel Beckett
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Samuel Beckett
#8. Creativity may have killed a few cats, but evolution certainly eliminated many more incurious ones. - Author: Guy Claxton
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Guy Claxton
#9. Of immortality, the soul, when well employed, is incurious. It is so well, that it is sure that it will be well. It asks no questions of the Supreme Power. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#10. One can suffer a convulsion of one's entire nature, and, unless it makes some noise, no one notices. It's not just that we are incurious; we completely lack any sense of each other's existences. - Author: Elizabeth Bowen
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#11. The pharisees minded what God spoke, but not what He intended. They were busy in the outward work of the hand, but incurious of the affections and choice of the heart. So God was served in the letter, they did not much inquire into His purpose; and therefore they were curious to wash their hands, but cared not to purify their hearts. - Author: Jeremy Taylor
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Jeremy Taylor
#12. How little one knows, really, about anything! And how grossly incurious one remains about so many things, what an enormous number of intrinsically astonishing achievements one merely takes for granted! - Author: Aldous Huxley
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Aldous Huxley
#13. Inexperienced in agriculture, the Pilgrims were also not woodspeople; indeed, they were so incurious about their environment that Bradford felt obliged to comment in his journal when Francis Billington . . . climbed to the top of a tall tree to look around. As Thoreau noted with disgust, the colonists landed at Plymouth on December 16, but it was not until January 8 that one of them went as far away as two miles--and even then the traveler was, again, Francis Billington. - Author: Charles C. Mann
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Charles C. Mann
#14. Their eyes were flat, incurious, and old- impossibly old, as though instead of looking forward, their eyes saw back to a distant past. - Author: Lauren Oliver
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Lauren Oliver
#15. Every green herb, from the lotus to the darnel, is rich with delicate aids to help incurious man. - Author: Martin Farquhar Tupper
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Martin Farquhar Tupper
#16. New York is large, glamorous, easy-going, kindly and incurious, but above all it is a crucible - because it is large enough to be incurious. - Author: Ford Madox Ford
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Ford Madox Ford
#17. ... the worst thing said about him is that he was uncurious. - Author: Yvon Chouinard
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Yvon Chouinard
#18. Tightfisted people are as mean with friendship as they are with cash
suspicious, unbelieving, and incurious. - Author: Paul Theroux
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Paul Theroux
#19. I've never looked through his stuff and I can't explain exactly why it is I'm so incurious. I suppose there are clues about his life there in the shut-up-and-locked room, perhaps even some traces of my mother, but better to be content with ignorance, I've always thought, than haunted by the truth. - Author: Sara Baume
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Sara Baume
#20. To the person who has anything to conceal - to the person who wants to lose his identity as one leaf among the leaves of a forest - to the person who asks no more than to pass by and be forgotten, there is one name above others which promises a haven of safety and oblivion. London. Where no one knows his neighbour. Where shops do not know their customers. Where physicians are suddenly called to unknown patients whom they never see again. Where you may lie dead in your house for months together unmissed and unnoticed till the gas-inspector comes to look at the meter. Where strangers are friendly and friends are casual. London, whose rather untidy and grubby bosom is the repository of so many odd secrets. Discreet, incurious and all-enfolding London. - Author: Dorothy L. Sayers
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#21. Incidentally, did you know that the whole eight glasses a day thing is complete bullshit and has no scientific basis? So many things are like that. Everyone just assumes they're true, because people are basically lazy and incurious, which incidentally is one of those words that sounds like it wouldn't be a word but is. - Author: John Green
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by John Green
#22. Place your truth on my hips. Don't tell me who you are. Show me with your sincerity, let me see the helplessness in your eyes, wrap your irreverence around me. I've been afraid. My freedom has been mistaken for frivolousness, my sexuality for carelessness. Double standards imposed with hypocritical fingers and incurious hearts. I've relinquished myself to the wrong ideologies. I'm tired of having to cover my vulnerability to protect others from feeling theirs.

Expose me, penetrate me with broad philosophies, let us collide recklessly with freedom. Steal my wild heart, but do not ask me to live under an umbrella when I like being soaked by the rain. - Author: Jacqueline Simon Gunn
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Jacqueline Simon Gunn
#23. Society was ruled by narrow-minded, profoundly incurious people, predatory business men, dull squires, bishops, politicians who could quote Horace but had never heard of algebra. Science was faintly disreputable and religious belief obligatory. Traditionalism, stupidity, snobbishness, patriotism, superstition and love of war seemed to be all on the same side; there was need of someone who could state the opposite point of view. - Author: George Orwell
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by George Orwell
#24. Sons of suicides seldom do well. Characteristically, they find life lacking a certain zing. They tend to feel more rootless than most, even in a notoriously rootless nation. They are squeamishly incurious about the past and numbly certain about the future to this grisly extent: they suspect that they, too, will kill themselves. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#25. But worst of all, he had become incurious. The - Author: Adam Nevill
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Adam Nevill
#26. He's a man [George W. Bush] who is lucky to be governor of Texas. He is a man who is unusually incurious, abnormally unintelligent, amazingly inarticulate, fantastically uncultured, extraordinarily uneducated, and apparently quite proud of all these things. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Incurious Or Uncurious quotes by Christopher Hitchens
