Authority quotes

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.

   Galileo Galilei quotes


Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.

   Albert Einstein quotes


Because power corrupts, society's demands for moral authority and character increase as the importance of the position increases.

   John Adams quotes


Between a man and his wife nothing ought to rule but love. Authority is for children and servants, yet not without sweetness.

   William Penn quotes


In order for a war to be just, three things are necessary. First, the authority of the sovereign. Secondly, a just cause. Thirdly, a rightful intention.

   St. Thomas Aquinas quotes


Authority founded on injustice is never of long duration.

   Seneca quotes


Obedience to lawful authority is the foundation of manly character.

   Robert E. Lee quotes


I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognizably wiser than oneself.

   Marlene Dietrich quotes


How can I be expected to believe that this same racial discrimination which has been the cause of so much injustice and suffering right through the years, should now operate here to give me a fair and open trial?....consider myself neither morally nor legally obliged to obey laws made by a Parliament in which I am not represented. That the will of the people is the basis of the authority of government, is a principle universally acknowledged as sacred throughout the civilized world.

   Nelson Mandela quotes


Tenacity is a certain quality of the human hand in its relation to the coin of the realm. It attains its highest development in the hand of authority and is considered a serviceable equipment for a career in politics.

   Ambrose Bierce quotes
