Insolence Quotes

We appreciate frankness from those who like us. Frankness from others is called insolence.

Andre Maurois

Frank Lloyd Wright

The insolence of authority is endeavoring to substitute money for ideas

Frank Lloyd Wright

True courage is cool and calm. The bravest of men have the least of a brutal, bullying insolence, and in the very time of danger are found the most serene and free.

Lord Shaftesbury

When night Darkens the streets, then wander forth the sons of Belial, flown with insolence and wine.

John Milton

He has to learn that petulance is not sarcasm, and that insolence is not invective.

Benjamin Disraeli

Prosperity is the surest breeder of insolence I know.

Mark Twain

It is true ... that the English in general, and indeed most of the men of learning in Europe, have given up all accounts of witches and apparitions as mere old wives' fables. I am sorry for it, and I willingly take this opportunity of entering my solemn protest against this violent compliment which so many that believe the Bible pay to those who do not believe it. I owe them no such service. I take knowledge that these are at the bottom of the outcry which has been raised, and with such insolence spread through the land, in direct opposition, not only to the Bible, but to the suffrage of the wisest and the best of men in all ages and nations. They well know (whether Christians know it or not) that the giving up of witchcraft is in effect giving up the Bible. With my latest breath I will bear testimony against giving up to infidels one great proof of the invisible world; I mean that of witchcraft and apparitions, confirmed by the testimony of all ages.

JOHN WESLEY

Insolence is not logic; epithets are the arguments of malice

Robert Green Ingersoll

Wit is well-bred insolence.

Aristotle

True couragehas so little to do with Anger, that there lies always the strongest Suspicion against it, where this Passion is highest. The true Courage is the cool and calm. The bravest of Men have the least of a brutal bullying Insolence; and in the very time of Danger are found the most serene, pleasant, and free. Rage, we know, can make a Coward forget himself and fight. But what is done in Fury, or Anger, can never be placd to the account of Courage.

Anthony Ashley Cooper, 3rd Earl of Shaftesbury

There is no occasion to trample upon the meanest reptile, nor to sneak to the greatest prince. Insolence and baseness are equally unmanly.

James Burgh
