Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. (Quote by - Voltaire)

The emancipation of today displays itself mainly in cigarettes and shorts. There is even a reaction from the ideal of an intellectual and emancipated womanhood, for which the pioneers toiled and suffered, to be seen in painted lips and nails, and the return of trailing skirts and other absurdities of dress which betoken the slave -- woman's intelligent companionship. (Quote by - Sylvia Pankhurst Quotes)

As long as people believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities. (Quote by - Voltaire)

Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind. (Quote by - Thomas Jefferson)

The absurdities of life keep me chuckling along. (Quote by - Carlos Felfoldi)

Finish each day / And be done with it / You have done what you could / Some blunders and / Absurdities have crept in / Forget them as soon as you can / Tomorrow is a new day / You shall begin it serenely / And with too high a spirit / To be encumbered by / Your old nonsense. (Quote by - Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes)

Life is full of infinite absurdities, which, strangely enough, do not even need to appear plausible, since they are true. (Quote by - Luigi Pirandello Quotes)

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. (Quote by - Ralph Waldo Emerson)

A sense of humor keen enough to show a man his own absurdities will keep him from the commission of all sins, or nearly all, save those worth committing. (Quote by - Samuel Butler)

When men are most sure and arrogant they are commonly most mistaken, giving views to passion without that proper deliberation which alone can secure them from the grossest absurdities. (Quote by - David Hume Quotes)

Poor human reason, when it trusts in itself, substitutes the strangest absurdities for the highest divine concepts. (Quote by - Saint John Chrysostom)

What a strange illusion it is to suppose that beauty is goodness! A beautiful woman utters absurdities: we listen, and we hear not the absurdities but wise thoughts. (Quote by - Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy)

What else is the meaning of our present chaos, of humanity in sorrow, but this: that contemporary man is tried before the bar of the Eternal, and found wanting? Nor can any nation survive, or re-establish lasting peace, if it rests on those foundations on which contemporary nations have been built, our own included. What are those crumbling foundations? Conceit, self-will, denial of discipline, self-expressionism, secularism, this worldliness, greed, entrenched privilege, defiance of God's desire. On base absurdities have we built. Have we now moral courage to face our common sin, or are we content to trust in one form of armed wickedness to overcome the evils of another form of the same mad folly? Merely by smashing our enemies we shall not remake the world. By Beelzebub no devils are cast out. (Quote by - Bernard Iddings Bell Quotes)

The philosophies of one age have become the absurdities of the next, and the foolishness of yesterday has become the wisdom of tomorrow. (Quote by - William Osler)

The ability to laugh at life is right at the top, with love and communication, in the hierarchy of our needs. Humour has much to do with pain; it exaggerates the anxieties and absurdities we feel, so that we gain distance and through laughter, relief. (Quote by - Sara Davidson)

The greater absurdities are, the more strongly they evince the falsity of that supposition from whence they flow. (Quote by - Francis Atterbury)

Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices. (Quote by - Voltaire Quotes)

Humor is our way of defending ourselves from life's absurdities by thinking absurdly about them. (Quote by - Lewis Mumford)

To all the rest of his Absurdities, he adds one more, who expects that Vertue from another which he won't practise himself. (Quote by - Mary Astell)

You've just got to focus on excellence and try not to be distracted by the news and the rumors and the absurdities of the stories that were coming out. (Quote by - James Daly)

To string incongruities and absurdities together in a wandering and sometimes purposeless way, and seem innocently unaware that they are absurdities, is the basis of the American art, if my position is correct. (Quote by - Mark Twain Quotes)

This socialism will develop in all its phases until it reaches its own extremes and absurdities. Then once again a cry of denial will break from the titanic chest of the revolutionary minority and again a mortal struggle will begin, in which socialism will play the role of contemporary conservatism and will be overwhelmed in the subsequent revolution, as yet unknown to us. (Quote by - Alexander Herzen Quotes)
