Indifferent

Famous quotes containing the word indifferent:

    The Yuppies are not defectors from revolt, they are a new race, assured, amnestied, exculpated, moving with ease in the world of performance, mentally indifferent to any objective other than that of change and advertising.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Men’s hearts are cold. They are indifferent. Not all the coal that is dug warms the world. It remains indifferent to the lives of those who risk their life and health down in the blackness of the earth; who crawl through dark, choking crevices with only a bit of lamp on their caps to light their silent way; whose backs are bent with toil, whose very bones ache, whose happiness is sleep, and whose peace is death.
    Mother Jones (1830–1930)

    Martyrs have harmed the truth.... Even today it only takes the crudest sort of persecution to give an otherwise inherently indifferent sectarianism an honorable name.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
