ignorance

A Quote by Robert Francis Kennedy on action, beginning, belief, discovery, earth, ignorance, injustice, men, misery, protestantism, thought, violence, women, work, and world

Some believe there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world's ills -- against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world's great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and 32 year old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. 'Give me a place to stand,' said Archimedes, 'and I will move the world.' These men moved the world, and so can we all.

Robert F. Kennedy (1925 - 1968)

A Quote by Sir William Jones on animals, certainty, cruelty, ignorance, learning, nobility, vices, and wealth

Cruelty to dumb animals is one of the distinguishing vices of low and base minds. Wherever it is found, it is a certain mark of ignorance and meanness; a mark which all the external advantages of wealth, splendour, and nobility, cannot obliterate. It is consistent neither with learning nor true civility.

William Jones (1746 - 1794)
