1. "A child's dreams should never be discounted, rather uplifted to the stars"

2. "If what we need to dream, to move our spirits most deeply and directly toward and through promise, is discounted as a luxury, then we give up the core -- the fountain -- of our power, our womanness; we give up the future of our worlds. (From "Poetry is Not a Luxury")"
Author: Audre Lorde
3. "What was the Sherlock Holmes principle? ‘Once you have discounted the impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.' " "I reject that entirely," said Dirk sharply. "The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbably lacks. How often have you been presented with an apparently rational explanation of something that works in all respects other than one, which is that it is hopelessly improbable?...The first idea merely supposes that there is something we don't know about, and...there are enough of those. The second, however, runs contrary to something fundamental and human which we do know about. We should therefore be very suspicious of it and all its specious rationality."
Author: Douglas Adams
4. "Fall, though, is the worst. Few things are worse than fall in New York. Some of the things that live in the lower intestines of rats would disagree, but most of the things that live in the lower intestines of rats are highly disagreeable anyways, so their opinion can and should be discounted."
Author: Douglas Adams
5. "Once you're labeled as mentally ill, and that's in your medical notes, then anything you say can be discounted as an artefact of your mental illness."

The cobwebs cleared, and I discounted stun gunning."What happened?" I asked Morelli."You fainted.""That's ridiculous.""I agree, but if someone sent me a dead woman I might faint, too." He was down on one knee, bending over me. "Are you ready to get up?""I need a moment.""Don't take too long. People will think I'm proposing."
Author: Janet Evanovich
7. "How do we regulate our emotions? The answer is surprisingly simple: by thinking about them. The prefrontal cortex allows each of us to contemplate his or her own mind, a talent psychologists call metacognition. We know when we are angry; every emotional state comes with self-awareness attached, so that an individual can try to figure out why he's feeling what he's feeling. If the particular feeling makes no sense—if the amygdala is simply responding to a loss frame, for example—then it can be discounted. The prefrontal cortex can deliberately choose to ignore the emotional brain."
Author: Jonah Lehrer
8. "Art is too often discounted as a secondary priority. The writer is necessary to society."
Author: Kayla Rae Whitaker
9. "If you don't demonstrate leadership character, your skills and your results will be discounted, if not dismissed."

10. "A third reason scientists are reluctant to examine paranormal phenomena is that they appear to contradict known physical laws. What is the point of studying the impossible? Only a fool would waste his time. The problem of data in conflict with existing theory cannot be overstated. Arthur Eddington once said you should never believe any experiment until it has been confirmed by theory, but this humorous view has a reality that cannot be discounted."
Author: Michael Crichton
11. "During the season, fans tend to observe, in as many complicated ways and with as much detail as we can come up with, only that a winning team is very good, and a losing team is hopeless. My mother or Prince Charles or probably a Martian could make the same observation, but their views would be discounted on the grounds of ignorance."
Author: Nick Hornby
12. "I have a very personal interest. I am a Miami-Dade voter. One of the issues is that my vote and so many other votes of women and African Americans in Florida are being discounted or discarded. I want my vote to count."
Author: Patricia Ireland
13. "This book will not harm you unless someone throws it at you which is a possibilty never to be discounted."
Author: Pseudonymous Bosch
14. "Fun is at the core of the way I like to do business and it has been key to everything I've done from the outset. More than any other element, fun is the secret of Virgin's success. I am aware that the ideas of business as being fun and creative goes right against the grain of convention, and it's certainly not how the they teach it at some of those business schools, where business means hard grind and lots of 'discounted cash flows' and net' present values'."
Author: Richard Branson
15. "Most kids don't believe in fairy tales very long. Once they hit six or seven they put away "Cinderella" andher shoe fetish, "The Three Little Pigs" with their violation of building codes, "Miss Muffet" and herwell-shaped tuffet—all forgotten or discounted. And maybe that's the way it has to be. To survive in theworld, you have to give up the fantasies, the make-believe. The only trouble is that it's not allmake-believe. Some parts of the fairy tales are all too real, all too true. There might not be a Red RidingHood, but there is a Big Bad Wolf. No Snow White, but definitely an Evil Queen. No obnoxiously cuteblond tots, but a child-eating witch… yeah. Oh yeah."
Author: Rob Thurman
16. "So many years of being lonely and discounted, no one ever truly seeing me, the person that I really am. The Gabriella I so desperately wanted to be. Yet somehow he broke through the walls and barriers and penetrated my frail, dejected heart. He loves me for all that I am and what I will become, even though it scares us both to death. He accepts the darkest parts of me and doesn't try to change me, in all my shattered complexity. Meeting him has given this facade of my life new meaning. He's given me purpose, strength. He's given me love. Dorian has given me everything and, in turn, is everything to me. Designed by the Divine Power especially for me."
Author: S.L. Jennings
17. "Based on the considerations of history, ancient history, and international axioms, the logic of following up a citizen with his shadow for the purpose of the demarcation of political frontiers of any state has been discounted for international conventions. For example the Arabs cannot ask Spain just because they were there some time in the past nor can they ask for any other area outside the frontiers of the Arab homeland"
Author: Saddam Hussein
18. "Introverts living under the Extroversion Ideal are like women in a man's world, discounted because of a trait that goes to the core of who they are. Extroversion is an enormously appealing personality style, but we've turned it into an oppressive standard to which most of us feel we must conform"
Author: Susan Cain
19. "When examining evidence relevant to a given belief, people are inclined to see what they expect to see, and conclude what they expect to conclude. Information that is consistent with our pre-existing beliefs is often accepted at face value, whereas evidence that contradicts them is critically scrutinized and discounted. Our beliefs may thus be less responsive than they should to the implications of new information"
Author: Thomas Gilovich

Author: Warren Ellis

It was understood as desirable, and even necessary, that we should go on and on from one technological innovation to the next, which would cause the economy to "grow" and make everything better and better. This of course implied at every point a hatred of the past, of all things inherited and free. All things superceded in our progress of innovations, whatever their value might have been, were discounted as of no value at all."
Author: Wendell Berry
22. "He discounted the value of his own efforts, and seemed to feel that anyone would have done the same."
Author: Yōko Ogawa
