Assuming Quotations

As human beings, we are vulnerable to confusing the unprecedented with the improbable.

Al Gore

I can't see what's wrong about assuming intelligence in your audience and what's bad news about being rewarded for assuming that.
Steven Moffat

The success of the suffrage movement would injure women spiritually and intellectually, for they would be assuming a burden though they knew themselves unable to bear it. It is the sediment, not the wave, of a sex. It is the antithesis of that highest and sweetest mystery - conviction by submission, and conquest by sacrifice.
John Boyle O'Reilly

Julian Baggini

We should govern our actions by assuming that people are more good than bad. Whereas, most of our social policies dictate that people are more bad than good. That you know if you do something, it'll be seized by the rich to exploit the poor.
James D. Watson
