Incitement Quotations

When a young non-white male is stopped and searched at the whim of a police officer, his idea of personal space, privacy and self esteem are shattered, to say nothing of his Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment protections. The damage goes deep quickly and stays. Stop & frisk, as well as a tactic, is also an incitement.
Henry Rollins

Every idea is an incitement... eloquence may set fire to reason.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

What an artist learns matters little. What he himself discovers has a real worth for him, and gives him the necessary incitement to work.
Emil Nolde

This fanaticism is what feeds terrorism. And this is precisely why Muslims must play an active role in opposing hate sermons and incitement to terrorism and extremism in their mosques.
Otto Schily

Much extremist activity falls short of directly inciting people to violence or other crimes and so is not caught by laws on incitement. Neither does the Public Order Act, used to protect groups of people from harassment, deal with the problem.
David Blunkett
