Despair is a narcotic. It lulls the mind into indifference.
— Charlie Chaplin

We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don't let yourself be lulled into inaction.
Bill Gates lulling quote

Most management-speak is, as Schrijvers points out, Panglossian balderdash designed to lull the weak and credulous

The arbitrary rule of a just and enlightened prince is always bad. His virtues are the most dangerous and the surest form of seduction: they lull a people imperceptibly into the habit of loving, respecting, and serving his successor, whoever that successor may be, no matter how wicked or stupid.

What does the truth matter? Haven't we mothers all given our sons a taste for lies, lies which from the cradle upwards lull them, reassure them, send them to sleep: lies as soft and warm as a breast!
— lulling quotation by Georges Bernanos
