Quotes about Blind

Weakness to be wroth with weakness! woman's pleasure, woman's pain-- Nature made them blinder motions bounded in a shallower brain.

Lord Alfred Tennyson

Oh, the blind counsels of the guilty! Oh, how cowardly is wickedness always! [Lat., O caeca nocentum consilia! O semper timidum scelus!]

Statius (Publius Papanius Statius)

The gull shall whistle in his wake, the blind wave break in fire. He shall fulfill God's utmost will, unknowing His desire, And he shall see old planets pass and alien stars arise, And give the gale his reckless sail in shadow of new skies. Strong lust of gear shall drive him out and hunger arm his hand, To wring his food from a desert nude, his foothold from the sand.

Rudyard Kipling

What though the spicy breezes Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle; Though every prospect pleases, And only man is vile; In vain with lavish kindness The gifts of God are strown; The heathen in his blindness Bows down to wood and stone.

Bishop Reginald Heber

Blind zeal can only do harm. [Ger., Blinder Eifer schadet nur.]

Magnus Gottfried Lichtwer

Zeal is very blind, or badly regulated, when it encroaches upon the rights of others.

Alexander Pope

Blind zeal can only do harm.

Magnus Gottfried Lichtwer
