Favorite Accuser Quotes

1. "In neither taste nor precision is any man's practice a court of last appeal, for writers all, both great and small, are habitual sinners against the light; and their accuser is cheerfully aware that his own work will supply ... many 'awful examples'..."
Author: Ambrose Bierce
2. "I have decided not to appeal the ruling that took my law license. My accusers, the Board of Supervisors, once again have fired my lawyers, ensuring I cannot properly defend myself or my anti-corruption efforts."
Author: Andrew Thomas
3. "We don't worship Satan, we worship ourselves using the metaphorical representation of the qualities of Satan. Satan is the name used by Judeo-Christians for that force of individuality and pride within us. But the force itself has been called by many names.We embrace Christian myths of Satan and Lucifer, along with Satanic renderings in Greek, Roman, Islamic, Sumerian, Syrian, Phrygian, Egyptian, Chinese or Hindu mythologies, to name but a few. We are not limited to one deity, but encompass all the expressions of the accuser or the one who advocates free thought and rational alternatives by whatever name he is called in a particular time and land. It so happens that we are living in a culture that is predominantly Judeo-Christian, so we emphasize Satan. If we were living in Roman times, the central figure, perhaps the title of our religion, would be different. But the name would be expressing and communicating the same thing. It's all context."
Author: Anton Szandor LaVey
4. "Answers to leading questions under torture naturally tell us nothing about the beliefs of the accused; but they are good evidence for the beliefs of the accusers."

Author: Chris Adrian
6. "Et puis s'accuser tous azimuts, on se met à l'abri de bien des exigences. (p.116)"
Author: Daniel Pennac
7. "A pastor should never complain about his congregation, certainly never to other people, but also not to God. A congregation has not been entrusted to him in order that he should become its accuser before God and men."
Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer
8. "This day I ceased to plead. I was no longer capable of lamentation. On the contrary, I felt very strong. I was the accuser, God the accused."
Author: Elie Wiesel
9. "I see everything," he cried, "everything that there is. Why does each thing on the earth war against each other thing? Why does each small thing in the world have to fight against the world itself? Why does a fly have to fight the whole universe? Why does a dandelion have to fight the whole universe? For the same reason that I had to be alone in the dreadful Council of the Days. So that each thing that obeys law may have the glory and isolation of the anarchist. So that each man fighting for order may be as brave and good a man as the dynamiter. So that the real lie of Satan may be flung back in the face of this blasphemer, so that by tears and torture we may earn the right to say to this man, 'You lie!' No agonies can be too great to buy the right to say to this accuser, 'We also have suffered."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
10. "It is rather hard to be accused of shiftlessness and idleness when the accuser closes the avenue of labour and industrial pursuits to us."
Author: George H. White

Author: Israelmore Ayivor
12. "When media coverage sets up a binary opposition between 'the accuser' and 'the accused,' there is no longer a victim or even an alleged victim - a flesh and blood person who was harmed by the violent act of another."
Author: Jackson Katz
13. "A prisoner in the Inquisition is never allowed to see the face of his accuser, or of the witnesses against him, but every method is taken by threats and tortures, to oblige him to accuse himself, and by that means corroborate their evidence."
Author: John Foxe
14. "I will not deny but that the best apology against false accusers is silence and sufferance, and honest deeds set against dishonest words."
Author: John Milton
15. "If you do not accuse each other, God will not accuse you. If you have no accuser you will enter heaven. What many people call sin is not sin; I do many things to break down superstition, and I will break it down."
Author: Joseph Smith Jr.
16. "Sai come sono fatto, Elena. Se fingessi di essere qualcun altro, mi accuseresti di ingannarti. Non voglio che tu torni da me perché pensi che sono cambiato. Voglio che torni da me perché hai accettato quello che sono. Se potessi cambiare, non pensi che a quest'ora l'avrei già fatto per te? Ti voglio di nuovo al mio fianco. Non per una notte o qualche settimana o addirittura un paio di mesi. Voglio che torni con me definitivamente. Quando non sei con me sto male."
Author: Kelley Armstrong
17. "If I can't face my accusers, that's a joke. We did that in medieval times."
Author: Lance Armstrong
18. "But this is not difficult, O Athenians! to escape death; but it is much more difficult to avoid depravity, for it runs swifter than death. And now I, being slow and aged, am overtaken by the slower of the two; but my accusers, being strong and active, have been overtaken by the swifter, wickedness. And now I depart, condemned by you to death; but they condemned by truth, as guilty of iniquity and injustice: and I abide my sentence, and so do they. These things, perhaps, ought so to be, and I think that they are for the best."
Author: Plato
19. "The Lord knows the heart of our accusers."
Author: Robert D. Hales
20. "Everyone who's ever been jealous because it's my face in the magazines and not theirs. Every person who can't believe or accept that someone can reach my level of success without being a total prick. Trust me, it's not the lies that hurt people. It's the willingness of everyone else to believe them. And then there are those who come out of the woodwork to back your accuser because it gives them the spotlight for three seconds. They can't stand the fact that you've risen above your past and that they have no excuse for never rising above theirs. In their minds, you need to be taken down a notch and they need to be raised a few, off the lies they tell about you. Because in the end, they know you, they've seen the real you, and by backing your accusers, they make other people think that maybe they were close to you – at least that's what they claim. It's a sick world and I'm disgusted with it. (Aiden)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
21. "[S]ilence supports the accuser's charge?"
Author: Sophocles
22. "There is no witness so terrible and no accuser so powerful as conscience which dwells within us."
Author: Sophocles
23. "States will invent obscure constructs like "white privilege" and "male privilege" because they are convenient to further the state's ends. They are untestable, unmeasurable, and unprovable, but they sound legitimate to those who consider themselves a casualty of society. Despite the lack of evidence, they put the burden on the white male to disprove the accuser. Since no such constructs exist, no method of defense is possible."
Author: Stefan Molyneux
24. "It was part of his nature to extenuate nothing and live on as one of his own worst accusers."
Author: Thomas Hardy
25. "...What pleases us in those who are rising is less pleasing in those who are falling. We do not admire the combat when there is no danger; and in any case, the combatants of the first hour alone have the right to be the exterminators in the last. He who has not been a determined accuser during prosperity should hold his peace in adversity. He alone who denounces the success has a right to proclaim the justice of the downfall."
Author: Victor Hugo
26. "He who has not been a stubborn accuser in prosperity should hold his peace in the face of ruin."
Author: Victor Hugo
27. "Too much of our history will seem to have taken place in the halls of capitols, where the accusers have mostly been guilty, and so have borne witness to nothing."
Author: Wendell Berry
