Hurtful Quotes

Excessive distrust is not less hurtful than its opposite. Most men become useless to him who is unwilling to risk being deceived.

Luc De Vauvanargues

A moderate addiction to money may not always be hurtful; but when taken in excess it is nearly always bad for the health.

Clarence Day

Nothing can be more hurtful to the service, than the neglect of discipline; for that discipline, more than numbers, gives one army the superiority over another.

George Washington

Nothing can be more hurtful to an honourable man than that he should be accused of bad faith

Mahatma Gandhi

Sin is not harmful because it is forbidden, but it is forbidden because it is hurtful.

Benjamin Franklin

The dominion of bad men is hurtful chiefly to themselves who rule, for they destroy their own souls by greater license in wickedness; while those who are put under them in service are not hurt except by their own iniquity. For to the just all the evils imposed on them by unjust rulers are not the punishment of crime, but the test of virtue. Therefore the good man, although he is a slave, is free; but the bad man, even if he reigns, is a slave, and that not of one man, but, what is far more grievous, of as many masters as he has vices; of which vices when the divine Scripture treats, it says, For of whom any man is overcome, to the same he is also the bond-slave.

St. Augustine of Hippo
