Authority quotes

Destiny. A tyrant's authority for crime and a fool's excuse for failure.

   Ambrose Bierce quotes


Nothing destroys authority more than the unequal and untimely interchange of power stretched too far and relaxed too much.

   Francis Bacon, Sr. quotes


The man whose authority is recent is always stern.

   Aeschylus quotes


As in nature, things move violently to their place and calmly in their place, so virtue in ambition is violent, in authority settled and calm.

   Francis Bacon, Sr. quotes


Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.

   Charles de Gaulle quotes


The anarchists are right in everything; in the negation of the existing order, and in the assertion that, without authority, there could not be worse violence than that of authority under existing conditions. They are mistaken only in thinking that anarchy can be instituted by a revolution.

   Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy quotes


The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn.

   Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes


To punish me for my contempt for authority, fate made me an authority myself.

   Albert Einstein quotes


It vexes me when they would constrain science by the authority of the Scriptures, and yet do not consider themselves bound to answer reason and experiment.

   Galileo Galilei quotes


And who can doubt that it will lead to the worst disorders when minds created free by God are compelled to submit slavishly to an outside will? When we are told to deny our senses and subject them to the whim of others? When people devoid of whatsoever competence are made judges over experts and are granted authority to treat them as they please? These are the novelties which are apt to bring about the ruin of commonwealths and the subversion of the state.

   Galileo Galilei quotes
