Victims Quotes

We are in a great night of the world. The thing is to know if we shall wake up to-morrow. We have only one succor we know of what the night is made. But shall we be able to impart our lucid faith, seeing that the heralds of warning are everywhere few, and that the greatest victims hate the only ideal which is not one, and call it utopian?

Henri Barbusse

What makes mankind tragic is not that they are the victims of nature, it is that they are conscious of it.

Joseph Conrad

Persecutors, like Victims, act out of fear. The may seem fearless, but actually Persecutors are almost always former Victims.

David Emerald

Our goodness comes solely from thinking on goodness; our wickedness from thinking on wickedness. We too are the victims of our own contemplation.

John Jay Chapman

We were all victims of an oppressive system, but that mattered far less to us than our deep bonding with our owners.

Orson Scott Card

Heroes and victims are the product of the mood they were in when opportunity came or when circumstances were at their worst.

Orson Scott Card

Even the devil gives some justice to his victims, when they're beyond all help.

Orson Scott Card

Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.

C.S. Lewis

Capable, generous men do not create victims, they nurture them.

Julian Paul Assange

In the past, we spoke of poverty, misery only in the south. Now there is a lot of misery, a lot of bad that creates victims in the north as well. This has become manifest: the global system was not made to serve the good of all, but to serve multinational companies.

Ahmed Ben Bella

Life is a tragedy for those who feel and a comedy for those who think. It is vital to mourn the victims of this government, but not at the expense of losing our sense of humor. Our ability to laugh directly coincides with our ability to fight. If we make fun of it, we can transcend it.

Moran Margaret Cho

All too often, problems are left to simmer until too late, with disastrous consequences to the people who become victims of the excesses committed on them by self-centred and self-serving leaders.

Mahendra Chaudhry

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Blondes make the best victims. They're like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.

Alfred Hitchcock

Cancer victims who don't accept their fate, who don't learn to live with it, will only destroy what little time they have left.

Ingrid Bergman
