Differences Quotes

I hope we shall abolish war and settle all differences at the conference table... I hope we shall abolish all hydrogen and atom bombs before they abolish us first.

Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin

Now that the wars are coming to an end, I wish you to prosper in peace. May all mortals from now on live like one people in concord and for mutual advancement. Consider the world as your country, with laws common to all and where the best will govern irrespective of tribe. I do not distinguish among men, as the narrow-minded do, both among Greeks and Barbarians. I am not interested in the descendance of the citizens or their racial origins. I classify them using one criterion: their virtue. For me every virtuous foreigner is a Greek and every evil Greek worse than a Barbarian. If differences ever develop between you never have recourse to arms, but solve them peacefully. If necessary, I should be your arbitrator. You must not consider God like an autocratic despot, but as a common Father of all; so your behavior may resemble the life siblings have in a family. On my part I should consider all equals, white or blacks, and wish you all to be not only subjects of the Commonwealth, but participants and partners. As much as this depends on me, I should try to bring about what I promised. The oath we made over tonights libations hold onto as a Contract of Love.

Alexander III

Optics is an example of the different ways a human is able to see things in the world. The same goes for the color of a person's skin and even though optics present that there are differences in color, these do not state that they should necessarily be treated as different.

Edward Alexander Bouchet

Philosophy is not a doctrine but a way of life, so the philosophers, for all the differences in their teachings, have more in common with one another than with anyone else, even their own followers.

Allan David Bloom

The practical politics of all the philosophers, no matter how-great their theoretical differences, were the same. They practiced an art of writing that appealed to the prevailing moral taste of the regime in which they found themselves, but which could lead some astute readers outside of it to the Elysian Fields where the philosophers meet to talk.

Allan David Bloom

Prejudice and passion and suspicion are more dangerous than the incitement of self-interest or the most stubborn adherence to real differences of opinion regarding rights.

Elihu Root

I guess the clarification I should make here is that Japan is as potentially racist as anywhere else, but for a developed country, the legal and social protections and recourses afforded to people of differences are lacking comparatively. Racial discrimination is still not illegal in Japan, and this is something the Japanese government promised to fix when it signed the UN Convention on it in 1995. In short, Japan is not an outlier in terms of racism, but it is in terms of protections against it.

Debito Arudou

I regard class differences as contrary to justice and, in the last resort, based on force.

Albert Einstein

We need to reach that happy stage of our development when differences and diversity are not seen as sources of division and distrust, but of strength and inspiration.

Josefa Iloilo

Tact is the discrimination of differences. It consists in conscious deviations.

Theodor Adorno

“Honest differences of views and honest debate are not disunity. They are the vital process of policy making among free men.”

Herbert Clark Hoover

One of the fundamental differences between the Victim Orientation and this one [Creator] is where you put your focus of attentionFor Victims, the focus is always on what they dont want: the problems that seem constantly to multiply in their lives. They dont want the person, condition, or circumstance they consider their Persecutor, and they dont want the fear that leads to fight, flee or freeze reactions, either. Creators, on the other hand, place their focus on what they do want. Doing this, Creators still face and solve problems in the course of creating outcomes they want, but their focus remains fixed on their ultimate vision.

David Emerald

The commonalities of creative thinking, and the psychology of mental drive and excitement, seem to transcend the log ical differences of subject or approach.

Stephen Jay Gould

If the notion of Europe existed at all, it was composed of its very differences, as a delicate unity of differences.

Gerard Delanty

Tolerance and celebration of individual differences is the fire that fuels lasting love.

Tom Hannah

If we look at multiple genes, the ethnic variations--such as the ones we found--are likely to be counterbalanced by other differences. It just happens that we looked at two genes for which the variants favored by selection have a higher frequency in some populations, such as Europeans. It might be that for the next two brain size genes we find, the variants favored by selection will have a higher frequency in Asians or Africans.

Bruce Lahn

Without aggression, it becomes possible to think well, to be curious about differences, and to enjoy each other's company.

Margaret J. Wheatley

What we have to do... is to find a way to celebrate our diversity and debate our differences without fracturing our communities.

Hillary Clinton

The purpose of anthropology is to make the world safe for human differences.

Ruth Benedict

There is space within sisterhood for likeness and difference, for the subtle differences that challenge and delight; there is space for disappointment-and surprise

Christine Downing

True love means infinite tolerance for each others differences.

M. K. Soni

I wondered whether the scientific modern brain could not get to the stage of realising that Space is not an empty homogeneous medium, but full of intricate differences, intelligible and real, though not with our common reality.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir

The unlike is joined together, and from differences results the most beautiful harmony.

Heraclitus

We know that dictators are quick to choose aggression, while free nations strive to resolve differences in peace.

George W. Bush
