Worse Quotes

The dismissal of our anger as a racial minority is worse than any slur or epithet because it undermines our ability to react to it.

Moran Margaret Cho

A virtuous person is better then virtue and a vicious person is worse than vice.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

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

There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.

Iosip Aleksandrovich Brodsky

Verbal fraud is worse than monetary fraud.

Hebrew Proverb

Love is the force that transforms and improves the Soul of the World. It is we who nourish the Soul of the World, and the world we live in will be either better or worse, depending on whether we become better or worse. And that's where the power of love comes in. Because when we love, we always strive to become better than we are.

Paulo Coelho

I have no race prejudices nor caste prejudices nor creed prejudices. All I care to know is that a man is a human being, and that is enough for me; he can't be any worse.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

When I am dead I would rather people thought me better than I was instead of worse; but if they think me worse, I cannot help it and, if it matters at all, it will matter more to them than to me.

Samuel Butler

Nothing dies harder than a bad idea. And few ideas are worse than the ones we have about art.

Julia Cameron

The worse government fails, the less privacy citizens supposedly deserve.

James Bovard

A good heart will help you to a bonny face, my lad and a bad one will turn the bonniest into something worse than ugly.

Emily Bronte

War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares about more than his personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill

Israel criticizes Hitler a lot, so do we, but theyve done something very similar, even worse, than what the Nazis did.

Hugo Chavez

I feel ever so strongly that an artist must be nourished by his passions and his despairs. These things alter an artist whether for the good or the better or the worse. It must alter him. The feelings of desperation and unhappiness are more useful to an artist than the feeling of contentment, because desparation and unhappiness stretch your whole sensibility.

Francis Bacon(painter)

To me, the thing that is worse than death is betrayal. You see, I could conceive death, but I could not conceive betrayal.

Malcolm X

God, the Exalted, gave the angels intellect without desires, He gave the animals desires without intellect, and He gave both to the sons of Adam. So a man whose intellect prevails over his desires is better than the angels, whilst a man whose desire prevails over his intellect is worse than the animals.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Existence without an aim, without a worthy purpose, is worse than wasted

Orison Swett Marden

Whatever you are from nature, keep to it; never desert your own line of talent. Be what nature intended you for, and you will succeed; be anything else, and you will be ten thousand times worse than nothing.

Sydney Smith

Opinions derived from long experience are exceedingly valuable, and outweigh all others, while they are consistent with facts and with each other; but they are worse than useless when they lead, as in this instance, to directly opposite opinions.

Peter Barlow

What Kuwait did to the Palestinian people is worse than what has been done by Israel to Palestinians in the occupied territories.

Yasser Arafat

To deprive a man of his natural liberty and to deny to him the ordinary amenities of life is worse then starving the body; it is starvation of the soul, the dweller in the body.

Mohandas Gandhi

Better break your word than do worse in keeping it.

Thomas Fuller

Often the thought of pain is actually worse that the pain itself.

Greg Behrendt

A creditor is worse than a slave-owner; for the master owns only your person, but a creditor owns your dignity, and can command it.

Victor Hugo
