Equality quotes
Equality
Owning your own home is America's unique recipe for avoiding revolution and promoting pseudo-equality at the same time. To keep citizens puttering in their yards instead of sputtering on the barricades, the government has gladly deprived itself of billions in tax revenues by letting home owners deduct mortgage interest payments.

- King, Florence
Liberty, equality - bad principles! The only true principle for humanity is justice; and justice to the feeble is protection and kindness.

- Henri-FrÚdÚric Amiel
The cry of equality pulls everyone down.

- Iris Murdoch
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.

- Shaw, George Bernard
The brotherhood of men does not imply their equality. Families have their fools and their men of genius, their black sheep and their saints, their worldly successes and their worldly failures. A man should treat his brothers lovingly and with justice, according to the deserts of each. But the deserts of every brother are not the same.

- Huxley, Aldous
Freedom! Equality! Brotherhood!

- Motto, French Revolution
Postmodernism refuses to privilege any one perspective, and recognizes only difference, never inequality, only fragments, never conflict.

- Wilson, Elizabeth
Equality is the public recognition, effectively expressed in institutions and manners, of the principle that an equal degree of attention is due to the needs of all human beings.

- Weil, Simone
Equal opportunity is good, but special privilege is better.

- Chennault, Anna
It is better that some should be unhappy than that none should be happy, which would be the case in a general state of equality.

- Johnson, Samuel
Wolves which batten upon lambs, lambs consumed by wolves, the strong who immolate the weak, the weak victims of the strong: there you have Nature, there you have her intentions, there you have her scheme: a perpetual action and reaction, a host of vices, a host of virtues, in one word, a perfect equilibrium resulting from the equality of good and evil on earth.

- Sade, Marquis De
Subordination tends greatly to human happiness. Were we all upon an equality, we should have no other enjoyment than mere animal pleasure.

- Johnson, Samuel
I do not think white America is committed to granting equality to the American Negro... this is a passionately racist country; it will continue to be so in the foreseeable future.

- Sontag, Susan
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

- Orwell, George
Equality of opportunity is an equal opportunity to prove unequal talents.

- Samuel, Viscount
The mind is lowered through association with inferiors. With equals it attains equality; and with superiors, superiority.

- Hitopadesa
It is not true that equality is a law of nature. Nature has no equality. Its sovereign law is subordination and dependence.

- Marquis de Vauvenargues
In science, all facts no matter how trivial, enjoy democratic equality.

- Mccarthy, Mary
The beginning of reform is not so much to equalize property as to train the noble sort of natures not to desire more, and to prevent the lower from getting more.

- Aristotle
Women's battle for financial equality has barely been joined, much less won. Society still traditionally assigns to woman the role of money-handler rather than money-maker, and our assigned specialty is far more likely to be home economics than financial economics.

- Nelson, Paula
