Confusion Quotes

Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited and the wealth and confusion man has created.

Edward Steichen

Nations eagerly invested their rulers with every prerogative needed to preserve their faith, and all the care to keep Church and State asunder, and to prevent the confusion of their powers, which had been the work of ages, was renounced in the intensity of the crisis. Atrocious deeds were done, in which religious passion was often the instrument, but policy was the motive. Fanaticism displays itself in the masses; but the masses were rarely fanaticised; and the crimes ascribed to it were commonly due to the calculations of dispassionate politicians.

John Dalberg-Acton, Lord Acton

Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.

Edward Steichen

I used to go away for weeks in a state of confusion.

Albert Einstein

Confusion is a word we have invented for an order which is not yet understood.

Henry Miller

Confusion now hath made his masterpiece!

William Shakespeare

Confusion of goals and perfection of means seems, in my opinion, to characterize our age.

Albert Einstein

If confusion is the first step to knowledge, I must be a genius.

Larry Leissner

Truth comes out of error more readily than out of confusion.

Sir Francis Bacon

The multitude which does not reduce itself to unity is confusion.

Blaise Pascal

Confusion heard his voice, and wild uproar Stood ruled, stood vast infinitude confined; Till at his second bidding darkness fled, Light shone, and order from disorder sprung.

John Milton

Confusion is an often too subtle sign of paranoia.

Anne Austin

The secret affinity between gambling and the desert . . . Gambling itself is a desert form, inhuman, uncultured, initiatory, a challenge to the natural economy of value, a crazed activity on the fringes of exchange. But it also has a strict limit and stops abruptly; its boundaries are exact, its passion knows no confusion. Neither the desert nor gambling are open areas; their spaces are finite and concentric, increasing in intensity toward the interior, toward a central point, be it the spirit of gambling or the heart of the desert a privileged, immemorial space, where things lose their shadow, where money loses its value, and where the extreme rarity of traces of what signals to us there leads men to seek the instantaneity of wealth.

Jean Baudrillard

I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

Jack Kerouac

The great secret that all old people share is that you really haven't changed in seventy or eighty years. Your body changes, but you don't change at all. And that, of course, causes great confusion.

Doris Lessing
