As for myself, what has died for me has died, so to speak, into my own heart: when I looked for him, the person who vanished has collected himself strangely and so surprisingly in me, and it was so moving to feel he was now only there that my enthusiasm for serving his new existence, for deepening and glorifying it, took the upper hand almost at the very moment when pain would otherwise have invaded and devastated the whole landscape of my spirit. When I remember how I - often with the utmost difficulty in understanding and accepting each other - loved my father! Often, in childhood, my mind became confused and my heart grew numb at the mere thought that someday he might no longer be; my existence seemed to me so wholly conditioned through him (my existence, which from the start was pointed in such a different direction!) that his departure was to my innermost self synonymous with my own destruction …, but so deeply is death rooted in the essence of love that (if only we are cognizant of death without letting ourselves be misled by the uglinesses and suspicions that have been attached to it) it nowhere contradicts love: where, after all, can it drive out someone whom we have carried unsayably in our heart except into this very heart, where would the "idea" of this loved being exist, and his unceasing influence (: for how could that cease which even while he lived with us was more and more independent of his tangible presence) … where would this always secret influence be more ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Misled quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
I like computers. I like the Internet. It's a tool that can be used. But don't be misled into thinking that these technologies are anything other than aspects of a degenerate economic system. ~ Jerry Brown
Misled quotes by Jerry Brown
Yeah, we shot ourselves in the foot right out of the gate. The guy who ran it at first misled pretty much everybody about how much capital we had. He said we had enough to go three years without making money, and we had enough to go three weeks. ~ Al Franken
Misled quotes by Al Franken
Brandt was in a room full of people all looking at him as he was about to get naked...When Brandt's cock sprung free, there was a gasp from all corners of the room.
Nestor fanned himself. Bryce's mouth made a perfect "O" in exactly the right shape to fit over a beautiful, plump cockhead. Donnelly just stared, blinked hard, and stared some more.
"What? You guys all look like you've never seen a dick before," Brandt said, a touch of defensive anger in his voice.
"Honey, I thought I had, but I have been most cruelly misled," answered Bryce.
--Dressing room incident #3 ~ Xavier Mayne
Misled quotes by Xavier Mayne
Going There

Of course it was a disaster.
The unbearable, dearest secret
has always been a disaster.
The danger when we try to leave.
Going over and over afterward
what we should have done
instead of what we did.
But for those short times
we seemed to be alive. Misled,
misused, lied to and cheated,
certainly. Still, for that
little while, we visited
our possible life. ~ Jack Gilbert
Misled quotes by Jack Gilbert
By the delusions of seeming good the people are often misled to desire their own ruin; and they are frequently influenced by great hopes and brave promises. ~ Niccolo Machiavelli
Misled quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
Pure and intelligent women can be deceived and misled by the baser sort, their very innocence and experience making them credulous and the helpless tools of the guilty and bold. ~ Catharine Beecher
Misled quotes by Catharine Beecher
He who is unaware of his ignorance will only be misled by his knowledge. ~ Richard Whately
Misled quotes by Richard Whately
There's a mindset in other countries that if you're an American, you're a Christian. Well, those people are sadly misled; they don't know our country. Our country is wicked, and the Christians are few. Just like they're few in other countries, they're few here. There may be many churches and there may be church buildings on every street corner and every corner in our cities across this country, but the true Christians are few. ~ Tim Conway
Misled quotes by Tim Conway
The German has not the slightest notion how a people must be misled if the adherence of the masses is sought. ~ Adolf Hitler
Misled quotes by Adolf Hitler
What insanity would lead me to believe that I possess the power, much less the aptitude to manipulate all of the consequences out of all of my decisions? ~ Craig D. Lounsbrough
Misled quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
In fact, the sickness I was suffering from was that I had been driven out of the paradise of childhood and had not found my place in the world of adults. I had set myself up in the absolute in order to gaze down upon this world which was rejecting me; now, if I wanted to act, to write a book, to express myself, I would have to go back down there: but my contempt had annihilated it, and I could see nothing but emptiness. The fact is that I had not yet put my hand to the plow. Love, action, literary work: all I did was to roll these ideas round in my head; I was fighting in an abstract fashion against abstract possibilities, and I had come to the conclusion that reality was of the most pitiful insignificance. I was hoping to hold fast to something, and misled by the violence of this indefinite desire, I was confusing it with the desire for the infinite. ~ Simone De Beauvoir
Misled quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
I resolved from the beginning of my quest that I would not be misled by sentiment and desire into beliefs for which there was no good evidence. ~ Bertrand Russell
Misled quotes by Bertrand Russell
Something very worrying has been going on at Scotland Yard. We now know that in dealing with the phone-hacking affair at the 'News of the World,' they cut short their original inquiry; suppressed evidence; misled the public and the press; concealed information and broke the law. Why? ~ Nick Davies
Misled quotes by Nick Davies
I want young people to ask me if I'm serious. Our young people have been lied to and misled for so long. When I stand on this soapbox, I want young people to ask me that because once they know I'm serious, they'll be willing to ride with me. ~ Nate Parker
Misled quotes by Nate Parker
What we're trying to do is determine if our shareholders and customers have been misled. We can't think of a single shareholder who would believe that the PSC order isn't in their best interest. ~ Chad Jones
Misled quotes by Chad Jones
You can spot people who don't know Jesus very well because the world they see is always so ugly. Even if they use all sorts of religious language, don't be misled - people who get touched by Jesus don't ignore the hurt and pain in the world, and yet they see so much beauty in it. ~ Jonathan Martin
Misled quotes by Jonathan Martin
Kitty, I am sorry if I misled you but..."
"Oh, shut up." She rolled her eyes and slid next to him placing her mouth on his ear. Evan groaned as he felt her fingers on the tent at his pants. The scent of her skin hit his nostrils like sweet, exotic perfume and right then he longed to bury his head in her shoulder, to eat her out and make her cum before he fucked her ass. "I know what you need and all those filthy things you crave to do with her. Punish her, claim her as really yours, fuck her till she screams, make her beg on her hands and knees. ~ Lilah E. Noir
Misled quotes by Lilah E. Noir
The question of "unreality"is a very important one. Misled by grammar, the great majority of those logicians who have dealt with this question have dealt with it on mistaken lines. They have regarded grammatical form as a surer guide in analysis than, in fact, it is. And they have not known what differences in grammatical form are important. ~ Bertrand Russell
Misled quotes by Bertrand Russell
Remember always that there not so very much difference between various people as we seem to imagine. Maps and atlases show us countries in different colors. Undoubtedly people do differ from one another, but they resemble each other also a great deal, and it is well to keep this in mind and not misled by colors on the map or by national boundaries. ~ Jawaharlal Nehru
Misled quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru
The false gospel of self-justification is a great enemy of the Christian faith because so many have been misled to believe that it is Christianity. ~ Gloria Furman
Misled quotes by Gloria Furman
Don't be misled: The imperative to 'Enjoy!' is omnipresent, but pleasure and happiness are almost entirely absent. ~ Nina Power
Misled quotes by Nina Power
The organization of American society is an interlocking system of semi-monopolies notoriously venal, an electorate notoriously unenlightened, misled by mass media notoriously phony. ~ Paul Goodman
Misled quotes by Paul Goodman
I refuse to be misled by any kind of a mirage about any alleged success of what I write. Those things are too easily exaggerated, and even when they are true, they always mean less than they seem to. ~ Thomas Merton
Misled quotes by Thomas Merton
Since the end of the nineteenth century, if not earlier, presidents have misled the public about their motives and their intentions in going to war. ~ Robert Higgs
Misled quotes by Robert Higgs
Are you an Israeli? I don't debate with Israelis. I have been misled, sorry I don't recognise Israel and I don't debate with Israelis ~ George Galloway
Misled quotes by George Galloway
The Avatar appears to be human and we are misled into thinking of him in these terms but the Avatar himself warns us against this error. ~ Sathya Sai Baba
Misled quotes by Sathya Sai Baba
It is a tribute to the American people that our leaders perceived that they had to lie to us, it is not a tribute to us that we were so easily misled. ~ Daniel Ellsberg
Misled quotes by Daniel Ellsberg
Innocence is a splendid thing, only it has the misfortune not to keep very well and to be easily misled. ~ Immanuel Kant
Misled quotes by Immanuel Kant
Whatever the degree to which Darwin may have "misled science into a dead end," the biologist Shi V. Liu observed in commenting on Koonin's paper, "we may still appreciate the role of Darwin in helping scientists [win an] upper hand in fighting against the creationists. ~ David Berlinski
Misled quotes by David Berlinski
It should not be surprising if people believe easily in a God who makes no demands, but this is not the God of the Bible. Satan has cleverly misled people by whispering that they can believe in Jesus Christ without being changed, but this is the Devil's lie. To those who say you can have Christ without giving anything up, Satan is deceiving you. ~ Billy Graham
Misled quotes by Billy Graham
the public is defrauded when it is purposely misled. Poor public! how often is it misled! against what a world of fraud has it to contend! ~ Anthony Trollope
Misled quotes by Anthony Trollope
Screaming at misguided people, Lincoln believed, was not the way to correct their wrongs. As he put it later, you won people to your side through "persuasion, kind, unassuming persuasion," making friends with them, appealing to their reason, gently telling them that they were only hurting themselves by their follies. For it was "an old true maxim," Lincoln contended, "that a drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gall." But if you assailed, damned, and vilified the misled, they would shut you off and lash back. ~ Stephen B. Oates
Misled quotes by Stephen B. Oates
Part of what we're trying to do is lay out what really happened. For example, I've been trying to get across that the intelligence leadership did not just keep the country in the dark. They actively misled the country on key issues. When you have someone who heads the NSA saying we don't hold data at all on US citizens, that's one of the most misleading statements I believe that's ever been made about surveillance policy. And I think that now we're starting to get that message across. ~ Ron Wyden
Misled quotes by Ron Wyden
Diverse audiences can be just as misled as homogenous audiences. ~ Howard Zinn
Misled quotes by Howard Zinn
I personally think that today, Iraq without Saddam Hussein is a truly better Iraq than with Saddam Hussein, but naturally I also feel uncomfortable due to the fact that we were misled with the information on weapons of mass destruction. ~ Aleksander Kwasniewski
Misled quotes by Aleksander Kwasniewski
If we look for ways to get rid of necessary pain, we'll be disillusioned or misled. For people who define real change as the elimination of inevitable struggle, the final chapters will be terribly disappointing. ~ Larry Crabb
Misled quotes by Larry Crabb
In 2003, a lot of us were saying, 'Where is the link between Saddam and bin Laden What does Iraq have to do with 911 Which is why it drives me crazy to hear all these Democrats saying, 'We were misled.' It makes me want to shout, 'F
you, you weren't misled.' You were afraid of being called unpatriotic. ~ George Clooney
Misled quotes by George Clooney
You know how there are words that never really - they are never really quite right. You can't quite trust them. Use them. You know. Without pause.'

'There are words I stare at,' Zach says. 'Strange. Every time. Misled, that's one. I see mizzled. And unshed. I read unched.'

'Me too! But that's a different thing - except, now you mention it, it's odd about unshed, that it's only for tears. Mostly. Hardly ever blood, for instance, you don't see unshed blood. Unched. Not really.'

'Not in my case anyway. Mine sheds all over the joint! I'm a bleeder all right. ~ Emma Richler
Misled quotes by Emma Richler
When I was knowingly misled but only learned that much later, that's really when I started to become disillusioned at the White House. ~ Scott McClellan
Misled quotes by Scott McClellan
It is surely obvious by now that the authorities whether political, administrative, corporate, scientific, academic or media mislead us all the time either by themselves being misled or by downright lies. I don't mean little ones, either, but enormous distortions of truth and reality. By far the safest filter system is to believe nothing The System tells us until it proves worthy of acceptance, and with every day that passes this gets less and less likely - with whoppers becoming ever more whopping. Keep asking the question 'Who benefits?' - Who benefits from me believing what they are telling me? Remember that words don't change the world only outcomes do. The outcome will invariably tell you who was behind events that justified or led to the outcome and you can see the process at an earlier stage by asking when an event happens - what will be the outcome if I believe what they are telling me? ~ David Icke
Misled quotes by David Icke
The biggest secret that traders don't want the world to know is that anyone with a more or less sane disposition can do what they're doing. The trick is getting access to the trough, to the P&L, to the "book." The road toward it is tough, treacherous and crowded. On the way there, you will be misled into believing that in order to be a trader you must have a physics PhD, or know how to write code and build models, or have a top-school MBA, or, when all else fails, just be a young Caucasian male. But in the end, it doesn't matter who made it to the top. In the end, it all comes down to merely placing a bet. ~ Katya G. Cohen
Misled quotes by Katya G. Cohen
In sum, the purpose is to contest the popular view, because popular opinions are so frequently found to be untimely, misled (by propaganda), or plainly wrong. ~ Humphrey B. Neill
Misled quotes by Humphrey B. Neill
I'm saddened to see that some have been misled into believing that Mr. Disney was something other than a kind, caring man. ~ Annette Funicello
Misled quotes by Annette Funicello
The disaster at the Bay of Pigs intensified Kennedy's doubts about listening to advisers from the CIA, the Pentagon, or the State Department who had misled him or allowed him to accept lousy advice. ~ Robert Dallek
Misled quotes by Robert Dallek
Or to put it another way, our children and our grandchildren are less literate and less numerate than we are. They are less able to navigate the world, to understand it to solve problems. They can be more easily lied to and misled, will be less able to change the world in which they find themselves, be less employable. All of these things. And as a country, England will fall behind other developed nations because it will lack a skilled workforce. And while politicians blame the other party for these results, the truth is, we need to teach our children to read and to enjoy reading. We ~ Neil Gaiman
Misled quotes by Neil Gaiman
Bush and Cheney were not misled by flawed intelligence; they used the flawed intelligence to mislead. ~ David Corn
Misled quotes by David Corn
One of the greatest lies is to believe that we don't have value. One of the greatest mistakes is to act on that belief. And the greatest liberation is found in looking at the cross of Christ and realizing the enormity of the lie. ~ Craig D. Lounsbrough
Misled quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Homeopathy pills are, after all, empty little sugar pills which seem to work, and so they embody [..] how we can be misled into thinking that any intervention is more effective than it really is. ~ Ben Goldacre
Misled quotes by Ben Goldacre
The stars, that nature hung in heaven, and filled their lamps with everlasting oil, give due light to the misled and lonely traveller. ~ John Milton
Misled quotes by John Milton
As with many marriages, hers was based on essential misconceptions. In her case she had been misled into thinking Peter was reliable, perhaps because he was very careful always to put cedar shoe trees into his shoes and because he always wore the same cologne, a bay rum that could be had only from a shop in a London arcade. It turned out that he was not reliable, just finicky about small personal things like that. He still used a shaving brush and a straight razor. ~ Anna Quindlen
Misled quotes by Anna Quindlen
Today Congress operates not as the Framers intended, but in the shadows, where it dreams up its most notorious and oppressive laws, coming into the light only to trumpet the genius and earnestness of its goings-on and to enable members to cast their votes. The people are left lamebrained and dumbfounded about their "representatives'" supposed good deeds, which usually take the form of omnibus bills numbering in hundreds if not thousands of pages, and utterly clueless about the effects these laws have on their lives. Of course, that is the point. The public is not to be informed but indoctrinated, manipulated and misled. ~ Mark R. Levin
Misled quotes by Mark R. Levin
So I would only feel guilt if I misled somebody who was terrible. ~ Simon Cowell
Misled quotes by Simon Cowell
But, Jefferson worried that the people - and the argument goes back to Thucydides and Aristotle - are easily misled. He also stressed, passionately and repeatedly, that it was essential for the people to understand the risks and benefits of government, to educate themselves, and to involve themselves in the political process.
Without that, he said, the wolves will take over. ~ Carl Sagan
Misled quotes by Carl Sagan
You must not let yourself be misled, in your solitude, by the fact that there is something in you which wants to escape from it. This very wish will, if you use it quietly and preeminently and like a tool, help to spread your solitude over wide country. People have (with the help of convention) found the solution of everything in ease and the easiest side of easy; but it is clear that we must hold to the difficult; everything living holds to it, everything in Nature grows and defends itself according to its own character and is an individual in its own right, strives to be so at any cost and against all opposition. We know little, but that we must hold to the difficult is a certainty that will not leave us; it is good to be solitary, for solitude is difficult; the fact that a thing is difficult must be one more reason for our doing it. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Misled quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
Come to find out, the Russians were never afraid of the Americans. They weren't raised with the terror that we were by our government. I was struck by how our government misled us for so many years. ~ Deidre Hall
Misled quotes by Deidre Hall
We live in a world where people are so busy trying to find someone that's "good enough" for them, that they have failed to stop and ask themselves if they are in fact good enough for other people! This is the result of a feeling of false entitlement that has been instilled in the minds of people today. "Everyone" deserves "the best" from the "Universe" however, nobody is teaching anybody to stop and try to become the best for their own selves and for other people. When everybody thinks they are the best, everybody falls short of the best that they can actually be. ~ C. JoyBell C.
Misled quotes by C. JoyBell C.
There is no 'my self' and 'his self'. There is the Self, the only Self of all. Misled by the diversity of names and shapes, minds and bodies, you imagine multiple selves. ~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Misled quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
The traditional Indian view was to protect our independence; it was therefore quite consistent with the requirements of the time and the feeling of the people. The world may have been misled by Jawaharlal Nehru's own international projection, which in fact had no reality on the ground. ~ Subramanian Swamy
Misled quotes by Subramanian Swamy
I myself was to experience how easily one is taken in by a lying and censored press and radio in a totalitarian state ... a steady diet over the years of falsifications and distortions made a certain impression on one's mind and often misled it. ~ William L. Shirer
Misled quotes by William L. Shirer
Spring can still be felt
even if you lay under the bed
Frozen heart can melt
in coldness when wintry love misled ~ Munia Khan
Misled quotes by Munia Khan
We are naked, but we think we are not; we are wrong, but think we are correct. We are misled but we think we are properly guided. We think we have leaders but in reality we do not. What we have are tyrants. ~ Nilantha Ilangamuwa
Misled quotes by Nilantha Ilangamuwa
It won't work that way. You know me, Bree. You 'know' me. I might have misled things at the club. But I gave you the real man. I don't back away from a fight and I win. ~ Christine Feehan
Misled quotes by Christine Feehan
Some primary reasons that both Plato and Aristotle had for believing in God were utterly erroneous - simple errors caused by our being stuck to the planet and misled by the sensation that the planet is standing still. If they had been aware that the Earth spins, they would have understood that, by and large, we are making our own light show in the night sky. As it was, the precision of the movements of all the stars seemed astonishing. If we knew how we lined up among the planets, their motion would not seem so strange and willful. Also, had the philosophers been able to leave planet Earth for a jaunt in outer space, they could have seen that, at a distance from gravity and atmosphere, moving things tend to keep moving, without any need for an impelling force. From out there, the motion of the planets would seem natural as well. ~ Jennifer Michael Hecht
Misled quotes by Jennifer Michael Hecht
We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States. ~ Sanjay Gupta
Misled quotes by Sanjay Gupta
Are you finally admitting that you can sell a man hope? Have I at last succeeded in teaching you that?'
He laughed and flicked his whip again, harder. He was in a better mood than I had seen for months.
'No, Camelot, not hope. Hope is for the weak; have I not succeeded in teaching you that? To hope is to put your faith in others and in things outside yourself; that way lies betrayal and disappointment. They didn't want hope, Camelot; they wanted certainty. What a man needs is the certainty that he is right, no selfdoubt, no fleeting thought that he might be wrong or misled. Absolute certainty that he is right, that's what gives a man the confidence and power to do whatever he wants and to take whatever he wants from this world and the next. ~ Karen Maitland
Misled quotes by Karen Maitland
If anyone imagines that scientists are dispassionate and impartial people, discussing theories and ideas unemotionally in the cool clear light of reason, they have been seriously misled. ~ Eva Jablonka
Misled quotes by Eva Jablonka
Zacharias, my dear, I do not believe I am misled by partiality when I say you are impossible to miss in this room," said Lady Wythe. ~ Zen Cho
Misled quotes by Zen Cho
The Iraq war that I signed up for was launched on false premises. The American people were misled. Now, whether that was due to bad faith or simply mistakes in intelligence, I can't say for sure. But I can say it shows the problem of putting too much faith in intelligence systems without debating them in public. ~ Edward Snowden
Misled quotes by Edward Snowden
Yes, I thought I was joining Manchester United, I was misled by all involved. I wasnt aware of another Manchester team ~ Robinho
Misled quotes by Robinho
The ghosts of Rilke and Wordsworth
along with the 300+ MFA programs, which now seem to employ all Living Poets
have misled the American public egregiously into thinking that poets are morally pure and/or useless. ~ Katy Lederer
Misled quotes by Katy Lederer
Top IRS officials specifically targeted tea party groups and misled the public about its secret political targeting program led by ex-official Lois Lerner, according to a bombshell new congressional report. ~ Patrick Howley
Misled quotes by Patrick Howley
We feel led to caution ... against forming the bad habit of incurring debt and taking upon themselves obligations which frequently burden them heavier than they can bear, and lead to the loss of their homes and other possessions. We know it is the fashion of the age to use credit to the utmost limit ... We, therefore, repeat our counsel ... to shun debt. Be content with moderate gains, and be not misled by illusory hopes of acquiring wealth ... Let our children also be taught habits of economy, and not to indulge in tastes which they cannot gratify without running into debt. ~ Wilford Woodruff
Misled quotes by Wilford Woodruff
There's a gullible side to the American people. They can be easily misled. Religion is the best device used to mislead them. ~ Michael Moore
Misled quotes by Michael Moore
People, Reacher was certain about. Dogs were different. People had freedom of choice. If a man or a woman ran snarling toward him, they did so because they chose to. They were asking for whatever they got. His response was their problem. But dogs were different. No free will. Easily misled. It raised an ethical problem. Shooting a dog because it had been induced to do something unwise was not the sort of thing Reacher wanted to do. ~ Lee Child
Misled quotes by Lee Child
Fair?' Bev said. 'Poor baby. Look, you're really sayin' that the ways of life are glum and grim and nasty, and I guess you want to turn crybaby about that, but what's on my mind is, Whoever misled you things were otherwise, hon? What sugar factory spun you out with such silly candy-assed notions? For cryin' out loud. There's other staples I'll break to you right now, too: The sun gives life but you'd be an ash flake if you got too close to it, you got to swallow water to live but sometimes it kills you, Uncle Sam don't truly count you as any relation, and God has gone blank on your name and face. ~ Daniel Woodrell
Misled quotes by Daniel Woodrell
Never follow the crowd, for the masses are often misled. ~ Joel T. McGrath
Misled quotes by Joel T. McGrath
Critics, like the rest of mankind, are very frequently misled by interest. ~ Samuel Johnson
Misled quotes by Samuel Johnson
We stay the same as we've always been, keeping to the path we've walked our whole lives. Paths that carry so much importance and perceived stability that we are utterly convinced it is the only one to walk – that anyone not walking it with us is being misled. ~ A.J. Darkholme
Misled quotes by A.J. Darkholme
This adoration of an artist as a lone genius is quite misled, I think, because they are very much part of their time and their community. ~ Hannah Gadsby
Misled quotes by Hannah Gadsby
Jesus tells us not to be misled by the voices of strangers. There are so many strange voices being heard in the religious world of our day. We must compare what they say with the Word of God. ~ Billy Graham
Misled quotes by Billy Graham
The trick in foraging for a tooth lost in coffee grounds is not to be misled by the clumps. The only way to be sure is to rub each clump between your thumb and index finger, which makes a mess of your hands. ~ Roger Rosenblatt
Misled quotes by Roger Rosenblatt
Given the popular widespread misconceptions of Christianity, it is time we returned to the basics. If we don't, thousands of people who believe they are Christians will discover in the day of judgment that they were misled. ~ Erwin W. Lutzer
Misled quotes by Erwin W. Lutzer
Any seeming deception in a statement is costly, not only in the expense of the advertising but in the detrimental effect produced upon the customer, who believes she has been misled. ~ John Wanamaker
Misled quotes by John Wanamaker
If we allow ourselves to be misled by the heresy of paraphrase, we run the risk of doing even more violence to the internal order of the poem itself. By taking the paraphrase as our point of stance, we misconceive the function of metaphor and meter. We demand logical coherences where they are sometimes irrelevant, and we fail frequently to see imaginative coherences on levels where they are highly relevant. ~ Cleanth Brooks
Misled quotes by Cleanth Brooks
Do not be misled by what you see around you, or be influenced by what you see. You live in a world which is a playground of illusion, full of false paths, false values and false ideals. But you are not part of that world. ~ Sai Baba
Misled quotes by Sai Baba
Our progenitors, our educational systems, the land, the media, the way have deluded and misled the masses: they have been defeated by the aridity of the actual dream. they were unaware that achievement or victory or luck or whatever the hell you want to call it must have its defeats. ~ Charles Bukowski
Misled quotes by Charles Bukowski
Ignorance is avoiding that which stands in front of me out of the misplaced hope that it will put what I'm ignoring behind me. Instead, it's most certain to drop it on top of me. ~ Craig D. Lounsbrough
Misled quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Let's be honest, Carefree Scamps have rarely been accused of being the epitome of virtue, and that's because we intermittently break the rules. Yet despite this we are often charming enough for others around us to make allowances. "He's just prone to being misled. ~ Karl Wiggins
Misled quotes by Karl Wiggins
I find it interesting how easily the mind can be misled, as mistaken fortunes only lead to transparent treasures...and not recognizing the incongruity of deception creates a false pretense of what we view as significant truth ~ Napoleon "Shake" Rogers
Misled quotes by Napoleon
Do not allow yourself to be misled by the surfaces of things ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Misled quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
We must not be misled by the claim that the source of all wisdom is in the government. ~ Herbert Hoover
Misled quotes by Herbert Hoover
Hundreds of people began to care in a personal way about the suffering of farm workers because they care about you and learned that you were willing to go to jail with striking farm workers," Chris wrote the delegates from the Jesuit spirituality conference. He apologized profusely for having misled them into thinking they would be out in a few days. But no one complained. They told Chris the two weeks ranked among the most moving times of their lives. The gripes came from those who had opted for the picket line that obeyed the injunctions. They had been forced to make the decision too fast, they grumbled to Chris.

Chris saw the saga as a modern parable, and he loved to tell the story: The people who played it safe, unwilling to risk arrest, ended up feeling cheated and angry. Those willing to sacrifice emerged from the ordeal enriched, certain that the experience had changed their lives. ~ Miriam Pawel
Misled quotes by Miriam Pawel
Do not be misled by the fact that you are at liberty and relatively free; that for the moment you are not under lock and key: you have simply been granted a reprieve. ~ Ryszard Kapuscinski
Misled quotes by Ryszard Kapuscinski
Do not be misled by appearances for these are apt to be deceptive. ~ Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Misled quotes by Ali Ibn Abi Talib
The older I get, the more apprehensive I become at the thought of losing my virginity. On the one hand, I'm ready to experience what all the fuss is about. It has to be great or it wouldn't be such a huge factor in the lives of all mankind. But that also scares me, because if I end up not liking sex, I'll be a little bit disappointed in mankind as a whole. Because it seems to be the root of a lot of evil, so if it's mediocre and I don't instantly want more of it, I'll feel a little misled by the entire world. ~ Colleen Hoover
Misled quotes by Colleen Hoover
Clearly Democrats are not united in what is the critique of what we're doing there and what is the answer to what we do next. The difficulty of coming to a unified position is that for a lot of people who voted for it, they have to decide whether they can admit that they were misled. ~ Steve Elmendorf
Misled quotes by Steve Elmendorf
It is one of the evils of democratical governments, that the people, not always seeing and frequently misled, must often feel before they can act. ~ George Washington
Misled quotes by George Washington
Every young man is prone to be misled by the suggestions of his own ill-founded ambition which he mistakes for the promptings of asecret genius, and thence dreams of unrivaled greatness. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Misled quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do not be misled by a person's prayers and fasting. [Instead] look [at their] sincerity and wisdom. ~ Umar
Misled quotes by Umar
