Equality sayings | Equality quotes | Equality mottos

An earthly kingdom cannot exist without inequality of persons. Some must be free, some serfs, some rulers, some subjects. - Martin Luther

The trauma of the Sixties persuaded me that my generation's egalitarianism was a sentimental error. I now see the hierarchical as both beautiful and necessary. Efficiency liberates; egalitarianism tangles, delays, blocks, deadens. - Camille Paglia

I will feel equality has arrived when we can elect to office women who are as unqualified as some of the men who are already there. - Maureen Reagan

No man is above the law, and no man is below it. - Theodore Roosevelt

In America everybody is of opinion that he has no social superiors, since all men are equal, but he does not admit that he has no social inferiors. - Bertrand Russell

Equality of opportunity is an equal opportunity to prove unequal talents. - Viscount Samuel

Between persons of equal income there is no social distinction except the distinction of merit. Money is nothing: character, conduct, and capacity are everything. There would be great people and ordinary people and little people, but the great would always be those who had done great things, and never the idiots whose mothers had spoiled them and whose fathers had left them a hundred thousand a year; and the little would be persons of small minds and mean characters, and not poor persons who had never had a chance. That is why idiots are always in favor of inequality of income (their only chance of eminence), and the really great in favor of equality. - George Bernard Shaw

Modern equalitarian societies whether democratic or authoritarian in their political forms, always base themselves on the claim that they are making life happier. Happiness thus becomes the chief political issue -- in a sense, the only political issue -- and for that reason it can never be treated as an issue at all. - Robert Warshow

Equality consists in the same treatment of similar persons. - Aristotle

Equal opportunity is good, but special privilege is better. - Anna Chennault

She was not a women likely to settle for equality when sex gave her an advantage. - Anthony Delano

A commitment to sexual equality with males is a commitment to becoming the rich instead of the poor, the rapist instead of the raped, the murderer instead of the murdered. - Andrea Dworkin

All this talk about equality. The only thing people really have in common is that they are all going to die. - Bob Dylan

The mandate for equal opportunity doesn't dictate disregard for the differences in candidates' qualities and skills. There is no constitutional right to play ball. All there is a right to compete for it on equal terms. - Tim III Ellis

When a bachelor of philosophy from the Antilles refuses to apply for certification as a teacher on the grounds of his color I say that philosophy has never saved anyone. When someone else strives and strains to prove to me that black men are as intelligent as white men I say that intelligence has never saved anyone: and that is true, for, if philosophy and intelligence are invoked to proclaim the equality of men, they have also been employed to justify the extermination of men. - Frantz Fanon

We've chosen the path to equality, don't let them turn us around. - Geraldine Ferraro

Generally, employees who file complaints of discrimination do so as a last resort. - Rubye Fields

The legacy of women's war work is our present post-industrial employment structure. It was the war that created the demand for a technologically advanced, de-skilled, low-paid, non-unionized female workforce and paved the way for making part-time work the norm for married women now. A generation later, it was the daughters of wartime women workers who completed their mothers' campaign for equal pay. - Linda Grant

The intelligence suffers today automatically in consequence of the attack on all authority, advantage, or privilege. These things are not done away with, it is needless to say, but numerous scapegoats are made of the less politically powerful, to satisfy the egalitarian rage awakened. - Wyndham Lewis

Prosperity or egalitarianism -- you have to choose. I favor freedom -- you never achieve real equality anyway: you simply sacrifice prosperity for an illusion. - Mario Vargas Llosa
