Prejudice is a great time saver; it enables you to form opinions without bothering to get the facts. A great many people think they are thinking, when, they are merely rearranging their prejudices.
Beware of prejudices, they are like rats, and men’s minds are like traps. Prejudices get in easily, but rarely do they get out. We cannot hold anyone in contempt without at the same time attracting contempt toward us. We cannot elevate a man without ourselves being elevated. Likewise, you cannot degrade another without falling into degradation yourself.
Prejudices places you in bondage. it curtails your opportunities for success and happiness. Why not enjoy the freedom that clam reasoning and an understanding heart will give you! Human nature is so constituted, that all see and judge better in the affairs of other men than in our own.
