Removing prejudices is, alas! too often removing the boundary of a delightful near prospect in order to let in a shockingly extensive one.
      - Sir Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke, Lord Brooke

To divest one's self of some prejudices would be like taking off the skin to feel the better.
      - Sir Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke, Lord Brooke

People have prejudices against a nation in which they have no acquaintances.
      - Philip Gilbert Hamerton

Moral prejudices are the stopgaps of virtue; and, as is the case with other stopgaps, it is often more difficult to get either out or in through them than through any other part of the fence.
      - Augustus William Hare

No wise man can have a contempt for the prejudices of others; and he should even stand in a certain awe of his own, as if they were aged parents and monitors. They may in the end prove wiser than he.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

Prejudice is never easy unless it can pass itself off for reason.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

Prejudice is the child of ignorance.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

Prejudice is a raft onto which the shipwrecked mind clambers and paddles to safety.
      - Ben Hecht

Prejudice is an equivocal term; and may as well mean right opinions taken upon trust and deeply rooted in the mind, as false and absurd opinions so derived, and grown into it.
      - Richard Hurd, D.D.

To lay aside all prejudice is to lay aside all principles. He who is destitute of principles is governed, theoretically and practically, by whims.
      - Hermann Jacobi

Opinions founded on prejudice are always sustained with the greatest violence.
      - Lord Francis Jeffrey

To be prejudiced is always to be weak; yet there are prejudices so near to laudable that they have been often praised and are always pardoned.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

They who, without any previous knowledge of us, think amiss of us, do us no harm; they attack not us, but the phantom of their own imagination.
      - Jean de la Bruyere

We seldom find persons whom we acknowledge to be possessed of good sense, except those who agree with us in opinion.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

Every one is forward to complain of the prejudices that mislead other men and parties, as if he were free, and had none of his own. This being objected on all sides, it is agreed that it is a fault and a hindrance to knowledge. What now is the cure? No other but this, that every man should let alone others' prejudices and examine his own.
      - John Locke (1)

To prejudge other men's notions before we have looked into them is not to show their darkness but to put out our own eye.
      - John Locke (1)

Our estimate of a character always depends much on the manner in which that character affects our own interests and passions.
      - Thomas Babington Macaulay

Reasoning against a prejudice is like fighting against a shadow; it exhausts the reasoner, without visibly affecting the prejudice. Argument cannot do the work of instruction any more than blows can take the place of sunlight.
      - Charles Arundell St. John-Mildmay

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that.
      - John Stuart Mill

Every period of life has its peculiar prejudices; whoever saw old age, that did not applaud the past, and condemn the present times?
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Everyone is a prisoner of his own experience. No one can eliminate prejudices--just recognize them.
      - Edward R. Murrow

How immense appear to us the sins that we have not committed.
      - Madame Suzanne Curchod Necker

All words are prejudices.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Remember, when the judgment's weak,
  The prejudice is strong.
      - Kane O'Hara, Midas--Air (act I, sc. 3)

Prejudice, like the spider, makes everywhere its home. It has neither taste nor choice of place, and all that it requires is room. If the one prepares her food by poisoning it to her palate and her use, the other does the same. Prejudice may be denominated the spider of the mind.
      - Thomas Paine
