“The only real conflict you will ever have in your life won’t be with others, but with yourself.”
Shannon L. Alder

“What ever happened to creativity? What ever happened to the passion? What ever happened to speaking ones mind? I'll tell you what happened. The kids aged, but never grew up. A baby can whine if it does not like something because it doesn't know better. What's your excuse? Stop getting offended whenever the wind blows your hair the wrong way! We will get nowhere if we continue to avoid truths to avoid offense. Speak your mind and do not be afraid of stepping on toes. The truth can be ugly, and that's what makes it so beautiful. Speak your mind, but don't take this as a chance to lose respect either. Always keep respect. If someone then still claims to be offended, it is not because of you, nor is it your fault. They simply don't like the taste of the bittersweet truth.”
Caitlyn Paige

Christopher Hitchens
“Those who are determined to be ‘offended’ will discover a provocation somewhere. We cannot possibly adjust enough to please the fanatics, and it is degrading to make the attempt.”
Christopher Hitchens

Mark Manson

Rachel Alexander
“Has society really become quite thin-skinned, or is acting “offended” a new tactic that is being used to shut down legitimate political debate? Progressives are increasingly claiming to be offended whenever those on the right disagree with their left-wing positions. It doesn't matter what the issue is; the left will divert a legitimate political debate into an accusation that the right disagrees with them because they are full of hate towards them.”
Rachel Alexander

“I needn’t be offended every time I have to look at you”
Naomi Novik, Uprooted

Sara Gruen
“Sometimes when you get older—and I'm not talking about you, I'm talking generally, because everyone ages differently—things you think on and wish on start to seem real. And then you believe them, and before you know it they're a part of your history, and if someone challenges you on them and says they're not true—why, then you get offended.”
Sara Gruen, Water for Elephants

Friedrich Nietzsche
“It is much more agreeable to offend and later ask forgiveness than to be offended and grant forgiveness. The one who does the former demonstrates his power and then his goodness. The other, if he does not want to be thought inhuman, must forgive; because of this coercion, pleasure in the other's humiliation is slight.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Aphorisms on Love and Hate

“The person who offends, and the person who has been offended and awaiting for a revenge have one thing in common: the real uncertainties of tomorrow is truly uncertain to both of them.”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Criss Jami
“They call good evil and evil good. There are those who are so easily offended that they lose their ability to ever discern any truth, and this is often derived from a sort of frenzy by way of their own masked prejudice.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Rather than being incensed by the nature of the bruise, maybe we should be inspired by the possibilities in the bruise.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“Right now we live in an age of extreme Political Correctness. It has gone way too far. I hope it's just a phase. Political Correctness is now just a fancy word for censorship. It's no longer about protecting the weak. It has become an excuse to persecute others, because persecuting people is fun. Don't you dare say or think the wrong thing, or a Twitter mob of angry villagers will come after you with digital torches and metaphorical pitchforks.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, Why Creeps Don't Know They're Creeps - What Game of Thrones can teach us about relationships and Hollywood scandals

Israelmore Ayivor
“Leaders create influence with the clays of criticism others throw at them. They don't take offence; they take corrections.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Leaders' Ladder

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“I tend to walk around convinced that any amount of forgiveness that I could extend could never possibly compensate for the offenses that I’ve had to endure. Yet, maybe the greater offense is that I’ve got that backwards.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Laurence Overmire
“Whenever you speak the truth, someone will be offended.”
Laurence Overmire, Report from X-Star 10

Linus Torvalds

Linus Torvalds

Garon Whited
“... being offended doesn’t, by itself, make me right.”
Garon Whited, Nightlord Orb

“Don't worry about offending people. Any time you write something thought provoking, some idiots will complain, because they hate it when you make them think.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, The Ugly Truth About Self-Publishing: Not another cookie-cutter contemporary romance

“Some people looove to feel offended because it makes them feel important. When your only tool is a hammer, suddenly every problem starts to look like a nail. And when the only time you feel relevant is when you claim to be offended, suddenly everything looks offensive.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, Inside The Mind of an Introvert

Eric    Weiner
“We are more willing to offend someone with whom we have weak ties, and a willingness to offend is an important part of creativity. Strong ties make us feel good, make us feel that we belong, but they also constrict our worldview.”
Eric Weiner, The Geography of Genius: A Search for the World's Most Creative Places from Ancient Athens to Silicon Valley

Tomas Schuman
“[T]he useful idiots, the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of the Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system, when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point: never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher. [...] They serve a purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your leftists in the United States: all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defenders. They are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation. When their job is completed, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see that Marxist-Leninists come to power—obviously they get offended—they think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot.”
Tomas Schuman

“No matter what you do, no matter what you say, someone out there will proclaim how outraged they are, because they think it's their job to be offended by every God damn thing. It makes people feel important. It makes them feel powerful. It makes them feel like their opinion is relevant.”
Oliver Markus Malloy, Why Creeps Don't Know They're Creeps - What Game of Thrones can teach us about relationships and Hollywood scandals

“When we start to understand God, we will be offended less and we will react less to negative circumstances”
Sunday Adelaja

“Ask yourself if the values by which you define yourself, by which you define right and wrong are serving your best interest. If you frequently get offended and bent out of shape by the actions/words of others, maybe it's time to revisit your values. Righteous indignation will tear apart your relationships and life. You choose the values that hurt you.”
Akiroq Brost

“Cited from Chuck Palahniuk, 2003 - do not suffer do not rejoice, be not complimented or offended by such gifts. Judge not, lest ye be judged (Ejump, 2017)”

P.Z. Myers
“It's not a crime to offend others; in fact, it's pretty much a natural consequence of having diverse cultures. We live in a world full of people with different backgrounds, interests, and values, and we must learn to accept that there will be clashes. As long as the differences do no harm, we should back off and accept them”

“It's easy to talk, but to don't give a fuck and to don't get offended is damn hard...”
Deyth Banger

“If you feel defensive, get angry, offended, or disappointed by their criticism, stop and ask yourself why. Why are you emotionally attached to this? Is there an issue you may need to address?”
Akiroq Brost
