Misled Quotes

Falsehood is never so successful as when she baits her hook with truth, and no opinions so fastly misled us as those that are not wholly wrong, as no timepieces so effectively deceive the wearer as those that are sometimes right.

Colton

The country and the Congress were misled into war. I regret that we were not given the truth; as I said more than a year ago, knowing what we know now, I would not have gone to war in Iraq. And knowing now the full measure of the Bush Administrationís duplicity and incompetence, I doubt there are many members of Congress who would give them the authority they abused so badly. I know I would not.

Senator John Kerry

This administration misled a nation into war by cherry-picking intelligence and stretching the truth beyond recognition.

Senator John Kerry

Critics, like the rest of mankind, are very frequently misled by interest

Samuel Johnson

Companies which get misled by their own success are sure to be blind sided.

Warren G. Bennis

I never lied and the things revealed to me were not false I never misled anybody nor was I misled.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

A final moral concerns terminology. Why did such serious people take so seriously axioms which now seem so arbitrary? I suspect that they were misled by the pernicious misuse of the word measurement in contemporary theory. This word very strongly suggests the ascertaining of some preexisting property of some thing, any instrument involved playing a purely passive role. Quantum experiments are just not like that, as we learned especially from Bohr. The results have to be regarded as the joint product of system and apparatus, the complete experimental set-up.

John Stewart Bell

Misled by fancy's meteor ray, By passion driven; But yet the light that led astray Was light from heaven.

Robert Burns
