They, therefore, instituted your Senate.” ~ Alexander Hamilton

I believe in crossing the line as many times as it takes to build a bridge we can all walk across.” ~ Del LaGrace Volcano
  42. “We live in a world of guided missiles and misguided men.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

  43. “I believe that the idea of the totality, the finality of the master-plan, is misguided.

  44. “(After death.) So few people who come across, possess awareness of any kind. All they bring along with them are worthless values.

  50. “If you think “sagging,” and, how many women you’ve got, and how big a chain you’ve got, and how much dope you’re slangin’, and how much money you’ve got in your pocket makes you a “man,” then you’re sadly mistaken. You’re going to be a misguided soul your entire life.” ~ Steve Harvey

  52. “As more and more citizens express what they think, and defend it in writing, that will change the way people understand public issues. It is easy to be wrong and misguided in your head. It is harder when the product of your mind can be criticized by others. Of course, it is a rare human who admits that he has been persuaded that he is wrong. But it is even rarer for a human to ignore when he has been proven wrong. The writing of ideas, arguments, and criticism improves democracy.” ~ Lawrence Lessig

  54. “Banning human cloning reflects our humanity. It is the right thing to do. Creating a child through this new method calls into question our most fundamental beliefs. It has the potential to threaten the sacred family bonds at the very core of our ideals and our society. At its worst, it could lead to misguided and malevolent attempts to select certain traits, even to create certain kind of children — to make our children objects rather than cherished individuals.” ~ William J. Clinton
  55. “Sam Harris fearlessly describes a moral and intellectual emergency precipitated by religious fantasies–misguided beliefs that create suffering, that rationalize violence, that have endangered our nation and our future. His argument for the morality, the honesty, and the humility of atheism is galvanizing. It is a relief that someone has spoken so frankly, with such passion yet such rationality. Now when the subject arises, as it inevitably does, I can simply say: Read Sam Harris’ Letter to a Christian Nation.” ~ Janna Levin , Misguided quotes belief

  58. “Forgiveness is not the misguided act of condoning irresponsible, hurtful behavior. Nor is it a superficial turning of the other cheek that leaves us feeling victimized and martyred.

  61. “We are not determined by our experiences, but are self-determined by the meaning we give to them; and when we take particular experiences as the basis for our future life, we are almost certain to be misguided to some degree.
