I have long since come to believe that people never mean half of what they say, and that it is best to disregard their talk and judge only their actions.
Even though we may focus first on the rights of our own country, that does not mean that we should disregard the rights of everyone else.
In light of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, critics are arguing that abuses of Iraqi prisoners are being produced by a climate of disregard for the laws of war.
Legislators and judges are necessarily exposed to all the temptations of money, fame, and power, to induce them to disregard justice between parties, and sell the rights, and violate the liberties of the people. Jurors, on the other hand, are exposed to none of these temptations.
No memory of having starred atones for later disregard, or keeps the end from being hard.
I will say go into the world and try to find good people that feel genuine affection and love for you, and disregard everything else about their background.
