### Famous quotes containing the word negative:

“A *negative* judgment gives you more satisfaction than praise, provided it smacks of jealousy.”

—Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

“Coming out, all the way out, is offered more and more as the political solution to our oppression. The argument goes that, if people could see just how many of us there are, some in very important places, the *negative* stereotype would vanish overnight. ...It is far more realistic to suppose that, if the tenth of the population that is gay became visible tomorrow, the panic of the majority of people would inspire repressive legislation of a sort that would shock even the pessimists among us.”

—Jane Rule (b. 1931)

“The *negative* always wins at last, but I like it none the better for that.”

—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
