Equality quotes by Anne Bradstreet
#1. Now say, have women worth, or have they none?
Or had they some, but with our Queen is't gone?
Nay Masculines, you have thus tax'd us long,
But she, though dead, will vindicate our wrong.
Let such as say our sex is void of reason
Know 'tis a slander now, but once was treason."
(In Honour of that High and Mighty Princess, Queen Elizabeth) #Quote by Anne Bradstreet
Equality quotes by Sophia Loren
#2. The first woman was created from the rib of a man. She was not made from his head to top him, nor from his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal to him. #Quote by Sophia Loren
Equality quotes by Nikesh Shukla
#3. There is a dream, a grand idealism, that mixed-race people are the hope for change, the peacekeepers, we are the people with an other understanding, with an invested interest in everyone being treated equally as we have a foot and a loyalty in many camps, with all shades. We are like love bombs planted in the minefield of black and white. It is as if our parents intended to make us, with courage, and on purpose, as vessels of empathy, bridges for the cultural divide and diplomats for diversity and equality." (from "The Good Immigrant" by Nikesh Shukla) #Quote by Nikesh Shukla
Equality quotes by Philippa Gregory
#4. Say yes,' he whispers. 'Marry me.'

I hesitate. I open my eyes. 'You will get my fortune,' I remark. 'When I marry you, everything I have becomes yours. Just as George has everything that belongs to Isabel.'

'That's why you can trust me to win it for you,' he says simply. 'When your interests and mine are the same, you can be certain that I will care for you as for myself. You will be my own. You will find that I care for my own.'

'You will be true to me?'

'Loyalty is my motto. When I give my word, you can trust me. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Equality quotes by Beth Houston
#5. Deists, not religious authoritarians, codified the clear separation of church from state in addition to the division of powers within the state. Deists, not the Continental philosophers, established our democratic republic upon uniquely radical interpretations of constitutional and procedural stability, representation, accountability, and transparency. Deists, not autocrats, formed a more perfect Union that preserved equally for each individual the universal civil liberties inscribed in the Bill of Rights. It was Deists who stood up for Everyman by instituting true equality and freedom for all. #Quote by Beth Houston
Equality quotes by Wendell Phillips
#6. Society,
the only field where the sexes have ever met on terms of equality, the arena where character is formed and studied, the cradle and the realm of public opinion, the crucible of ideas, the world's university, at once a school and a theater, the spur and the crown of ambition, the tribunal which unmasks pretension and stamps real merit, the power that gives government leave to be, and outruns the lazy Church in fixing the moral sense of the eye. #Quote by Wendell Phillips
Equality quotes by Frank A Thomas
#7. One truth is that racism and oppression is deeply embedded in the American experiment. History has taught that each time blacks have made strides for freedom, there has been backlash, retrenchment, and new forms of subjugation that appear on the American landscape, thus the old oppression in a new guise. The new movement is part of a long historical sweep, and it has taken many lifetimes to get to this point in the struggle. Because of the tenacity of opposition to equality of race and economics in America, we cannot "throw the baby out with the bathwater" by looking upon past struggles and tradition with disdain. Past struggles #Quote by Frank A Thomas
Equality quotes by Laura Riding
#8. Spiritually, the society we have is the society of men with women present only in adjunctive relation to them, not the society of men and women in reciprocal relation. We do not have the society of human beings. #Quote by Laura Riding
Equality quotes by Melinda Gates
#9. A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Equality quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#10. Questioning our government's actions does not violate the principles of liberty, equality, and freedom of speech; it exercises them, and by exercise we grow stronger. I have read enough of Thomas Jefferson to feel sure #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Equality quotes by Sue Burke
#11. Equality is not a fact, like the length of days... Equality is an idea, a belief, like beauty. #Quote by Sue Burke
Equality quotes by Theodore Bikel
#12. I am a universalist, passionately devoted to the cause of equality within the human family. #Quote by Theodore Bikel
Equality quotes by Edmund Burke
#13. It is from this absolute indifference and tranquillity of the mind, that mathematical speculations derive some of the most considerable advantages; because there is nothing to interest the imagination; because the judgment sits free and unbiased to examine the point. All proportions, every arrangement of quantity, is alike to the understanding, because the same truths result to it from all; from greater from lesser, from equality and inequality. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Equality quotes by Timothy Noah
#14. Republican presidents talk about freedom. Democratic presidents talk about equality. #Quote by Timothy Noah
Equality quotes by Luvvie Ajayi
#15. The fight for equality on any front does not equate to the oppression of the oppressors. #Quote by Luvvie Ajayi
Equality quotes by Philip James Bailey
#16. The sole equality on earth is death. #Quote by Philip James Bailey
Equality quotes by Pink
#17. Women have fought so long and hard for our rights and equality, and now all our attention is put on being a size 0. #Quote by Pink
Equality quotes by Crystal Woods
#18. I'm convinced that not all units of time are equal. #Quote by Crystal Woods
Equality quotes by Elizabeth Peters
#19. Though Emerson is a firm believer in the equality of the female sex, he has some secret reservations, and one of them involves the car. (There is something about these machines that makes men want to pound their chests and roar like gorillas. I speak figuratively, of course.) #Quote by Elizabeth Peters
Equality quotes by Nathaniel Altman
#20. As a so-called "civilized" people, and as members of a society in search of lasting peace in the world, we cannot remain callous to our responsibility toward nature and insensitive to the inherent rights of the animals. #Quote by Nathaniel Altman
Equality quotes by Thomas Huxley
#21. Without seeing any reason to believe that women are, on the average, so strong physically, intellectually, or morally, as men, I cannot shut my eyes to the fact that many women are much better endowed in all these respects than many men, and I am at a loss to understand on what grounds of justice or public policy a career which is open to the weakest and most foolish of the male sex should be forcibly closed to women of vigor and capacity. #Quote by Thomas Huxley
Equality quotes by Aysha Taryam
#22. Our Arab mothers and sisters are suffering from injustices like domestic violence, sexual harassment, child marriages and honour killings, some are still fighting for their right to drive or travel without male custody therefore our powerful Arab media was not only expected to broadcast this particular one of a kind Women's march it should have held panels to dissect the issues being brought forth in order for the Arab world to better understand that gender equality is not an idea that one believes in, it is a planned movement that requires an enormous effort on the part of both men and women to reach. #Quote by Aysha Taryam
Equality quotes by Robert Casey
#23. Abortion is defended today as a means of ensuring the equality and independence of women, and as a solution to the problems of single parenting, child abuse, and the feminization of poverty. #Quote by Robert Casey
Equality quotes by John Adams
#24. It has ever been my hobby-horse to see rising in America an empire of liberty, and a prospect of two or three hundred millions of freemen, without one noble or one king among them. You say it is impossible. If I should agree with you in this, I would still say, let us try the experiment, and preserve our equality as long as we can. A better system of education for the common people might preserve them long from such artificial inequalities as are prejudicial to society, by confounding the natural distinctions of right and wrong, virtue and vice. #Quote by John Adams
Equality quotes by Queen Victoria
#25. Were women to "unsex" themselves by claiming equality with men, they would become the most hateful, heathen, and disgusting of beings and would surely perish without male protection. #Quote by Queen Victoria
Equality quotes by Thomas Paine
#26. Liberty and Property are words expressing all those of our possessions which are not of an intellectual nature. There are two kinds of property. Firstly, natural property, or that which comes to us from the Creator of the universe-such as the earth, air, water. Secondly, artificial or acquired property-the invention of men. In the latter, equality is impossible; for to distribute it equally it would be necessary that all should have contributed in the same proportion, which can never be the case; and this being the case, every individual would hold on to his own property, as his right share. Equality of natural property is the subject of this little essay. Every individual in the world is born therein with legitimate claims on a certain kind of property, or its equivalent. -Agrarian Justice #Quote by Thomas Paine
Equality quotes by Joni Mitchell
#27. All my battles were with male egos. I'm just looking for equality, not to dominate. But I want to be able to control my vision. #Quote by Joni Mitchell
Equality quotes by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
#28. There can be neither politically nor morally a good which is not universal ... we cannot reform for a time or for a class, but for all and for the whole, and our very interests will draw us together in one wide bond of sympathy. #Quote by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
Equality quotes by Steven Petrow
#29. I'll tell you what gives me hope. After the struggle for marriage equality, the LGBTQ community has built some very powerful organizations; in particular, I'm thinking of HRC (the Human Rights Campaign), GLAAD ... but there are many, many others, too. Along with those organizations come some savvy and tested leaders who have come to understand not only how to change hearts and minds but also legislators and judges votes. #Quote by Steven Petrow
Equality quotes by Christina Engela
#30. Because freedom and liberty and equality are as vital as breath, we only notice their absence when we are left gasping when the colors of diversity and individual liberty are drained from the world around us. #Quote by Christina Engela
Equality quotes by Camille Paglia
#31. I consider myself 100 percent a feminist, at odds with the feminist establishment in America. For me the great mission of feminism is to seek the full political and legal equality of women with men. However, I disagree with many of my fellow feminists as an equal opportunity feminist, who believes that feminism should only be interested in equal rights before the law. I utterly oppose special protection for women where I think that a lot of the feminist establishment has drifted in the last 20 years. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Equality quotes by James F. Cooper
#32. The demagogue is usually sly, a detractor of others, a professor of humility and disinterestedness, a great stickler for equality as respects all above him, a man who acts in corners, and avoids open and manly expositions of his course, calls blackguards gentlemen, and gentlemen folks, appeals to passions and prejudices rather than to reason, and is in all respects, a man of intrigue and deception, of sly cunning and management. #Quote by James F. Cooper
Equality quotes by Karl Marx
#33. Then the world will be for the common people, and the sounds of happiness will reach the deepest springs. Ah! Come! People of every land, how can you not be roused. #Quote by Karl Marx
Equality quotes by Tom Robbins
#34. For all the ugly vices that capitalism encourages, it's at least interesting, exciting, it offers possiblities. In America, the struggle is at least an individual struggle. And if the individual has strength enough of character, salt enough of wit, the alternatives are thicker than polyesters in a car salesman's closet. In a socialistic system, you're no better or no worse than anybody else.'
But that's equality!'
Bullshit. Unromantic, unattractive bullshit. Equality is not in regarding different things similarly, equality is in regarding different things differently. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Equality quotes by Manal Al-Sharif
#35. I was lonely, desperate, and angry. At that moment, I truly understood what it meant to be a Saudi woman. It meant being confronted with every possible kind of
obstacle and discrimination. It meant being told that if you want to race with men, you'd have to do it with your hands and legs cut off. I started to wish I had been born somewhere - anywhere - else. #Quote by Manal Al-Sharif
Equality quotes by Donavan Nelson Butler
#36. The greatest risk most of us will take in our lifetime is that of repression or denial of basic rights of another person. The great risk is that you have no idea what will happen if that person you think so small or insignificant of stands up and totally eclipses the Sun in the universe of those lacking in empathy, humility, and humbleness. #Quote by Donavan Nelson Butler
Equality quotes by Dian Fossey
#37. I feel more comfortable with gorillas than people. I can anticipate what a gorilla's going to do, and they're purely motivated. #Quote by Dian Fossey
Equality quotes by Solomon Northup
#38. Strange as it may seem, within plain sight of this same house, looking down from its commanding height upon it, was the Capitol. The voices of patriotic representatives boasting of freedom and equality, and the rattling of the poor slave's chains, almost commingled. A slave pen within the very shadow of the Capitol! #Quote by Solomon Northup
Equality quotes by Josephine Baker
#39. I wanted to get far away from those who believed in cruelty, so then I went to France, a land of true freedom, democracy, equality and fraternity. #Quote by Josephine Baker
Equality quotes by Rory Stewart
#40. Democracy matters because it reflects an idea of equality and an idea of liberty. It reflects an idea of dignity, the dignity of the individual, the idea that each individual should have an equal vote, an equal say, in the formation of their government. #Quote by Rory Stewart
Equality quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#41. The laws keep up their credit, not by being just, but because they are laws; 'tis the mystic foundation of their authority; they have no other, and it well answers their purpose. They are often made by fools; still oftener by men who, out of hatred to equality, fail in equity; but always by men, vain and irresolute authors. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Equality quotes by Felix Rohatyn
#42. Fairness does not require the redistribution of wealth;
it requires the creation of wealth, geared to an economy
that can provide employment for everyone able and willing to work. #Quote by Felix Rohatyn
Equality quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#43. Achieving gender equality requires the engagement of women and men, girls and boys. It is everyone's responsibility. #Quote by Ban Ki-moon
Equality quotes by Morris Dees
#44. The focus of tolerance education is to deal with the concept of equality and fairness. We need to establish confidence with children that there is more goodness than horror in this world. #Quote by Morris Dees
Equality quotes by Sarah Grimke
#45. I ask no favor for my sex. All I ask of our brethren is that they take their feet off our necks. #Quote by Sarah Grimke
Equality quotes by Fredrik Backman
#46. She's very keen on justice and equality, Lyt's mother, so long as they're based on her precise interpretation of those words. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Equality quotes by Sebastian Junger
#47. An earthquake achieves what the law promises but does not in practice maintain," one of the survivors wrote. "The equality of all men". #Quote by Sebastian Junger
Equality quotes by Matthew S. McCormick
#48. 1. Myth: Without God, life has no meaning.

There are 1.2 billion Chinese who have no predominant religion, and 1 billion people in India who are predominantly Hindu. And 65% of Japan's 127 million people claim to be non-believers. It is laughable to suggest that none of these billions of people are leading meaningful lives.

2. Myth: Prayer works.

Studies have now shown that inter-cessionary prayer has no effect whatsoever of the health or well-being of the subject.

3. Myth: Atheists are immoral.

There are hundreds of millions of non-believers on the planet living normal, decent, moral lives. They love their children, care about others, obey laws, and try to keep from doing harm to others just like everyone else. In fact, in predominantly non-believing countries such as in northern Europe, measures of societal health such as life expectancy at birth, adult literacy, per capita income, education, homicide, suicide, gender equality, and political coercion are better than they are in believing societies.

4. Myth: Belief in God is compatible with science.

In the past, every supernatural or paranormal explanation of phenomena that humans believed turned out to be mistaken; science has always found a physical explanation that revealed that the supernatural view was a myth. Modern organisms evolved from lower life forms, they weren't created 6,000 years ago in the finished state. Fever is not caused by de #Quote by Matthew S. McCormick
Equality quotes by Salena Godden
#49. Human colour is the colour I'm truly interested in, the colour of your humanity. May the size of your heart and the depth of your soul be your currency. Welcome aboard my Good Ship. Let us sail to the colourful island of mixed identity.
"SHADE" - Salena Godden #Quote by Salena Godden
Equality quotes by Naomi Wolf
#50. Here's what we're not taught [about the Declaration and Constitution]: Those words at the time they were written were blazingly, electrifyingly subversive. If you understand them truly now, they still are. You are not taught - and it is a disgrace that you aren't - that these men and women were radicals for liberty; that they had a vision of equality that was a slap in the face of what the rest of their world understood to be the unchanging, God-given order of nations; and that they were willing to die to make that desperate vision into a reality for people like us, whom they would never live to see. #Quote by Naomi Wolf
Equality quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#51. It is rather the nature of America - our freewheeling, outspoken, prosperous, liberty-loving citizens extend equality to women, homosexuals, minorities, and almost anyone who comes to our shores, and thereby create desire and with it shame for that desire. Indeed, it is worse still than that: Precisely because we worry publicly that we are insensitive, our enemies scoff privately that we in fact are too sensitive - what we think is liberality and magnanimity they see as license and decadence. If we don't have confidence in who we are, why should they? #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson
Equality quotes by T.F. Hodge
#52. Karma and manifestation work 24/7 to balance the scales. Do justice, in due time. #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Equality quotes by Farley Maglaya
#53. It's Unfair to be fair,
For Life is unfair #Quote by Farley Maglaya
Equality quotes by Ken O'Neill
#54. Have you noticed how Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen look nothing alike, and yet they both manage to look exactly like their father, Martin? #Quote by Ken O'Neill
Equality quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#55. True patriotism springs from a belief in the dignity of the individual, freedom and equality not only for Americans but for all people on earth, universal brotherhood and good will, and a constant and earnest striving toward the principles and ideals on which this country was founded. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Equality quotes by Bella Abzug
#56. Women's struggle for equality worldwide is about more than equality between men and women. Our struggle is about reversing the trends of social, economic, political, and ecological crisis - a global nervous breakdown! Our struggle is about creating sustainable lives and attainable dreams. #Quote by Bella Abzug
Equality quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#57. when the humanist revolution preached the stirring ideals of human liberty, human equality and human fraternity. Since 1789, despite numerous wars, revolutions and upheavals, humans have not managed to come up with any new value. All #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Equality quotes by Emma Watson
#58. When at 15, my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams, because they didn't want to appear muscle-y, when at 18, my male friends were unable to express their feelings, I decided that I was a feminist. #Quote by Emma Watson
Equality quotes by Val Kilmer
#59. Mark Twain is a voice of truth and a voice of equality and a voice of tolerance. Which means he is a voice of love. #Quote by Val Kilmer
Equality quotes by Anatole France
#60. The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread. #Quote by Anatole France
Equality quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#61. Too many escape into complexity these days. For it is an escape for persons to cry, when this question of the equality of peoples is raised in India or in our own South, 'Ah, but the situation is not so simple.' ... no great stride forward is ever made for the individual or for the human race unless the complex situation is reduced to one simple question and its simple answer. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Equality quotes by Bernard Hare
#62. It was time to take the best bits from them all and build something delicious: the spirituality of the Hindus, the community spirit and family ties of the Muslims, the ancient wisdom of the Chinese, the love of freedom and equality of the Afro-Caribbeans, the work ethic of the Jews, the bloody-mindedness and wry humour of the Australians, the blarney of the Irish, the passion of the Scots, the unorthodoxy of the Welsh, combined with our own English love of justice, fair play and democracy. Put them all together and you had a vision for the future, a direction, which Bokononism could exploit. #Quote by Bernard Hare
Equality quotes by William J. Clinton
#63. I might not be the same, but that's not important/No freedom till we're equal, damn right I support it #Quote by William J. Clinton
Equality quotes by Will Durant
#64. Nature has never read the Declaration of Independence. It continues to make us unequal. #Quote by Will Durant
Equality quotes by Howard Zinn
#65. Another black woman, Margaret Wright, said she was not fighting for equality with men if it meant equality in the world of killing, the world of competition. "I don't want to compete on no damned exploitative level. I don't want to exploit nobody. . . . I want the right to be black and me. . . . #Quote by Howard Zinn
Equality quotes by Rainn Wilson
#66. I was raised to think about philosophy and religious thought and the soul and the spirit of humankind in a different way, also really socially progressive teachings of the Baha'i faith, the equality of men and women, the elimination of racial prejudice, the equality of science and religion, so it was a big cauldron of big ideas in my household. And we were weird and unhappy family, but nonetheless that was a really positive thing that came out of it. #Quote by Rainn Wilson
Equality quotes by Golda Meir
#67. To be successful, a woman has to be much better at her job than a man. #Quote by Golda Meir
Equality quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#68. And as for equality, are the fingers on one hand equal in length? Each has its place. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Equality quotes by Criss Jami
#69. Women rescue men just as much as, if not more than, men rescue women. #Quote by Criss Jami
Equality quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#70. Equality lies only in human moral dignity ... Let there be brothers first, then there will be brotherhood, and only then will there be a fair sharing of goods among brothers. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Equality quotes by Edmund Burke
#71. You would have had a protected, satisfied, laborious, and obedient people, taught to seek and to recognize the happiness that is to be found by virtue in all conditions; in which consists the true moral equality of mankind, and not in that monstrous fiction, which, by inspiring false ideas and vain expectations into men destined to travel in the obscure walk of laborious life, serves only to aggravate and embitter that real inequality, which it never can remove; and which the order of civil life establishes as much for the benefit of those whom it must leave in a humble state, as those whom it is able to exalt to a condition more splendid, but not more happy. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Equality quotes by James Boswell
#72. Quoting Samuel Johnson: Men know that women are an overmatch for them, and therefore they choose the weakest or the most ignorant. If they did not think so, they never could be afraid of women knowing as much as themselves. #Quote by James Boswell
Equality quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#73. Leadership must come from the developing world itself, and that is beginning to happen. In India, Africa, and the Middle East, men and women alike are pushing for greater equality. These people need our support. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Equality quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#74. Contented saturnine human figures, a dozen or so of them, sitting around a large long table ... Perfect equality is to be the rule; no rising or notice taken when anybody enters or leaves. Let the entering man take his place and pipe, without obligatory remarks; if he cannot smoke ... let him at least affect to do so, and not ruffle the established stream of things. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Equality quotes by Bryant McGill
#75. The natural and untainted male mind respects and loves the woman and her magnificent scope of capability and creative gifts. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Equality quotes by Aysha Taryam
#76. The Women's March had restored my faith as I am sure it has introduced the young generation to the new wave of feminism. A feminist movement that was made up of both sexes and all ages and creeds, one that did away with the arguments and stood arm in arm for a greater cause, a cause which the Arab media did not wish to project. #Quote by Aysha Taryam
Equality quotes by Pat Schroeder
#77. The Pledge of Allegiance says 'liberty and justice for all'. Which part of 'all' don't you understand? #Quote by Pat Schroeder
Equality quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#78. Mystic equality lies in abstraction, not in having or in doing, which are processes. In function and process, one man, one part, must of necessity be subordinate to another. It is a condition of being. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Equality quotes by Bob Dylan
#79. I've heard you say many times
That you're better 'n no one
And no one is better 'n you
If you really believe that
You know you got
Nothing to win and nothing to lose #Quote by Bob Dylan
Equality quotes by John Ruskin
#80. We are foolish, and without excuse foolish, in speaking of the superiority of one sex to the other, as if they could be compared in similar things! Each has what the other has not; each completes the other; they are in nothing alike and the happiness and perfection of both depend on each asking and receiving from the other what the other only can give. #Quote by John Ruskin
Equality quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#81. All the great religions of the world inculcate equality and brotherhood of mankind and the virtue of toleration. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Equality quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#82. In societies where men are truly confident of their own worth, women are not merely tolerated but valued.
(From a speech read on video on August 31, 1995 before the NGO Forum on Women, Beijing, China) #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Equality quotes by Harper Lee
#83. Don't matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house's yo' comp'ny, and don't you let me catch you remarkin' on their ways like you was so high and and mighty! Yo' folks might be better'n the Cunninghams but it don't count for nothin' the way you're disgracin' 'em. #Quote by Harper Lee
Equality quotes by Jacques Roux
#84. Freedom is nothing but a vain phantom when one class of men can starve another with impunity. Equality is nothing but a vain phantom when the rich, through monopoly, exercise the right of life or death over their like. The republic is nothing but a vain phantom when the counter-revolution can operate every day through the price of commodities, which three quarters of all citizens cannot afford without shedding tears. #Quote by Jacques Roux
Equality quotes by Amit Ray
#85. Primary aim of quantum artificial intelligence is to improve human freedom, dignity, equality, security, and total well-being. #Quote by Amit Ray
Equality quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#86. The women are submitted to unjust drudgery. This I believe is the case with every barbarous people. With such, force is law. The stronger sex therefore imposes on the weaker. It is civilization alone which replaces women in the enjoyment of their natural equality. That first teaches us to subdue the selfish passions, and to respect those rights in others which we value in ourselves. Were we in equal barbarism, our females would be equal drudges. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Equality quotes by Maximilien Robespierre
#87. Again, it may be said, that to love justice and equality the people need no great effort of virtue; it is sufficient that they love themselves. #Quote by Maximilien Robespierre
Equality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#88. If a man is genuinely superior to his fellows the first thing that he believes in is the equality of man. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Equality quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#89. It may be said of Socialism, therefore, that its friends recommended it as increasing equality, while its foes resisted it as decreasing liberty ... .The compromise eventually made was one of the most interesting and even curious cases in history. It was decided to do everything that had ever been denounced in Socialism, and nothing that had ever been desired in it ... we proceeded to prove that it was possible to sacrifice liberty without gaining equality ... .In short, people decided that it was impossible to achieve any of the good of Socialism, but they comforted themselves by achieving all the bad. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Equality quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#90. It's clear that equality doesn't quite cut it. Asking for a sliver of disproportionate power is too polite a request. I don't want to be included. Instead, I want to question who created the standard in the first place. #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Equality quotes by Dipin Damodharan
#91. We're still living with the ideology of compromise, not with the ideology of recognition #Quote by Dipin Damodharan
Equality quotes by Stella Vine
#92. I think there is a total equality for me between painting a literary figure or Kate Moss or my Mum or a dog or a bird. To me, they are all absolutely equal. #Quote by Stella Vine
Equality quotes by Matthew Arnold
#93. Men of culture are the true apostles of equality #Quote by Matthew Arnold
Equality quotes by Charles Bayard Mitchell
#94. It is the way one treats his inferiors more than the way he treats his equals which reveals one's real character. #Quote by Charles Bayard Mitchell
Equality quotes by Mahnaz Afkhami
#95. Women's empowerment is intertwined with respect for human rights. #Quote by Mahnaz Afkhami
Equality quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#96. However, not only are fortunes equal in America, equality extends to some degree to intelligence itself. I do not think that there is a single country in the world where, in proportion to the population, there are so few ignorant and, at the same time, so few educated individuals as in America. Primary education is available to all; secondary is within reach of no one, which can be explained quite easily as the inevitable result, so to speak, of my argument above. Almost all Americans enjoy a life of comfort and can, therefore, obtain the first elements of human knowledge. In America there are few rich people; therefore, all Americans have to learn the skills of a profession which demands a period of apprenticeship. Thus America can devote to general learning only the early years of life. At fifteen, they begin a career; their education ends most often when ours begins. If education is pursued beyond that point, it is directed only towards specialist subjects with a profitable return in mind. Science is studied as if it were a job and only those branches are taken up which have a recognized and immediate usefulness. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Equality quotes by Gary Snyder
#97. The blue mountains are constantly walking." Dōgen is quoting the Chan master Furong. -- "If you doubt mountains walking you do not know your own walking."

-- Dōgen is not concerned with "sacred mountains" - or pilgrimages, or spirit allies, or wilderness as some special quality. His mountains and streams are the processes of this earth, all of existence, process, essence, action, absence; they roll being and non-being together. They are what we are, we are what they are. For those who would see directly into essential nature, the idea of the sacred is a delusion and an obstruction: it diverts us from seeing what is before our eyes: plain thusness. Roots, stems, and branches are all equally scratchy. No hierarchy, no equality. No occult and exoteric, no gifted kids and slow achievers. No wild and tame, no bound or free, no natural and artificial. Each totally its own frail self. Even though connected all which ways; even because connected all which ways. This, thusness, is the nature of the nature of nature. The wild in wild.

So the blue mountains walk to the kitchen and back to the shop, to the desk, to the stove. We sit on the park bench and let the wind and rain drench us. The blue mountains walk out to put another coin in the parking meter, and go down to the 7-Eleven. The blue mountains march out of the sea, shoulder the sky for a while, and slip back to into the waters. #Quote by Gary Snyder
Equality quotes by Paul Martin
#98. If heterosexual people can get married then gay and lesbian people can get married too #Quote by Paul Martin
Equality quotes by Benjamin Rush
#99. The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty; and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments ... We waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity, by means of the Bible; for this divine book, above all others favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws. #Quote by Benjamin Rush
Equality quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#100. The way the Democrats go about seeking equality is to lower people at the top. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Equality quotes by Mark Takano
#101. I hope that by just being a competent member and expressing informed views on issues that aren't related to issues of LGBT equality, Republicans see me as a general asset. #Quote by Mark Takano
Equality quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#102. We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the United States, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever. #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
Equality quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#103. The Constitution under which we live and which has not only blessed us but has become a model for other constitutions, is our God-inspired national safeguard ensuring freedom and liberty, justice and equality before the law. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Equality quotes by Shreya Naik
#104. Dear Women... Chill! We are no victims. Fight for equality, not superiority. Days are not far when people would be fighting for 'Men Empowerment'. True... Women suffer more than Men. But that doesn't mean men do not suffer - at all. I have seen male victims of domestic violence. I have read stories of men who have been rape victims. We, being women can at least speak about these issues. Men can't or rather our society doesn't allow them to. We better fight against the issues we are facing irrespective of the gender. And not against Men.

Stop being Weak - Mentally as well as Physically. Because We are Not! #Quote by Shreya Naik
Equality quotes by Hillary Clinton
#105. Don't let anyone tell you that great things can't happen in America ... Barriers can come down. Justice and equality can win. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Equality quotes by Queen Rania Of Jordan
#106. Social media are a catalyst for the advancement of everyone's rights. It's where we're reminded that we're all human and all equal. It's where people can find and fight for a cause, global or local, popular or specialized, even when there are hundreds of miles between them. #Quote by Queen Rania Of Jordan
Equality quotes by Abigail Adams
#107. I hate to complain ... No one is without difficulties, whether in high or low life, and every person knows best where their own shoe pinches. #Quote by Abigail Adams
Equality quotes by John Mark Reynolds
#108. Austen knew nothing of our modern quest for equality. People are not numbers, and so they are never "equal." Some folk are higher placed than others, have more money, were more fortunate in their parents, or are brighter. These gifts do not come to us by merit but by the unfathomable providence of God. #Quote by John Mark Reynolds
Equality quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#109. Cynical conformism tells us that emancipatory ideals of more equality, democracy and solidarity are boring and even dangerous, leading to a grey, overregulated society, and that our true and only paradise is the existing 'corrupted' capitalist universe. Radical emancipatory engagement starts from he premise that it is the capitalist dynamics which are boring, offering more of the same in the guise of constant change, and that the struggle for emancipation is still the most daring of all ventures. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Equality quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#110. It has always been a mystery to me how men can feel themselves honoured by the humiliation of their fellow beings. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Equality quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#111. The people who believe themselves to be on the left, and who defend the agents of Islam in the name of tolerance and culture, are being rightwing. Not just rightwing. Extreme rightwing. I don't understand how you can be so upset about the Christian right and just ignore the Islamic right. I'm talking about equality. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Equality quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#113. A government is republican in proportion as every member composing it has his equal voice in the direction of its concerns, not indeed in person, which would be impracticable beyond the limits of a city or small township, but by representatives chosen by himself and responsible to him at short periods. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Equality quotes by William Ruckelshaus
#114. Women's rights in essence is really a movement for freedom, a movement for equality, for the dignity of all women, for those who work outside the home and those who dedicate themselves with more altruism than any profession I know to being wives and mothers, cooks and chauffeurs, and child psychologists and loving human beings. #Quote by William Ruckelshaus
Equality quotes by Ed Brubaker
#115. It's because of my grandfather that I became a Young Avenger. But it's hard sometimes, to be a black kid carrying a name like "Patriot". I remember talking to Captain America about before he died, and he explained what Patriotism meant to him...
It wasn't about blindly supporting your government. It was about knowing what your country could be, what it should be... And trying to lead it there through your example. And holding it accountable when it failed. I remember he said: "There's noting patriotic about corruption or cover-ups... or defending them. But exposing them, well, that takes a hero. #Quote by Ed Brubaker
Equality quotes by Maria Karvouni
#116. The opinion of each person matters. All opinions are subjective. We should stop relying on others' views and start believing in our own instinct whatever position in the society we have. All are equal. #Quote by Maria Karvouni
Equality quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#117. Lakshmi massages Vishnu's feet. Is this male domination? Kali stands on Shiva's chest. Is this female domination? Shiva is half a woman. Is this gender equality? Why then is Shakti never half a man? #Quote by Devdutt Pattanaik
Equality quotes by Mary Astell
#118. If all men are born free, how is it that all women are born slaves? #Quote by Mary Astell
Equality quotes by Aristotle.
#119. The democrats think that as they are equal they ought to be equal in all things. #Quote by Aristotle.
Equality quotes by Jay-Z
#120. [Banning marriage equality is] discrimination, plain and simple. It's really not about votes. It's about people. I think it's the right thing to do as a human being. #Quote by Jay-Z
Equality quotes by David Eugene Edwards
#121. If by saying that all men are born equal, you mean that they are equally born, it is true, but true in no other sense; birth, talent, labor, virtue, and providence, are forever making differences #Quote by David Eugene Edwards
Equality quotes by Johann Lamont
#122. Scotland is my country, the nation that shaped me, that taught me my values. A nation whose achievements inspired and inspire me, a community whose failings drive me - drive my overwhelming desire to fight for social justice and equality. #Quote by Johann Lamont
Equality quotes by Stephan Attia
#123. The source of beauty in a man,
It is humbleness and grace;
Equality is the pearl of a king,
Justice his scepter;
Salvation is his crown. #Quote by Stephan Attia
Equality quotes by B.R. Ambedkar
#124. Political democracy cannot last unless there lies at the base of it social democracy. What does social democracy mean? It means a way of life which recognizes liberty, equality and fraternity as the principles of life. #Quote by B.R. Ambedkar
Equality quotes by Auliq Ice
#125. The land of the free full of freedom is the home of the brave. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Equality quotes by Osho
#126. For thousands of years what men has done to women is simply monstrous. She cannot think of herself as equal as man. & she has been conditioned so deeply that even if u say she is equal, she is not going to believe it. It has become almost her mind, the conditioning has become her mind, that she is less in everithing. & the man who has reduced the women to such a state also cannot love her. LOVE CAN EXIST ONLY IN EQUALITY, IN FRIENDSHIP #Quote by Osho
Equality quotes by Margot Lee Shetterly
#127. They wore their professional clothes like armor. They wielded their work like weapons, warding off the presumption of inferiority because they were Negro or female. #Quote by Margot Lee Shetterly
Equality quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#128. I'm pushing for citizen equality not because of some moral idea, but because this is the essential way to crack the corruption that now makes it so Washington can't work. #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Equality quotes by Adam Makos
#129. Vatican's secretly composed message to all of Germany's Catholics. On Palm Sunday, 1937, the letter had been read by every priest, bishop, and cardinal across Germany to their congregations and three hundred thousand copies had been disseminated. Drafted by Munich's Cardinal von Faulhaber and Pope Pius XI, it told German Catholics in carefully veiled terms that National Socialism was an evil religion based on racism that stood contrary to the church's teachings and every man's right to equality. It made reference to "an insane and arrogant prophet" without naming Hitler. #Quote by Adam Makos
Equality quotes by Andrew Johnson
#130. If blacks were given the right to vote, that would place every splay-footed, bandy-shanked, hump-backed, thick-lipped, flat-nosed, woolly-headed, ebon-colored in the country upon an equality with the poor white man. #Quote by Andrew Johnson
Equality quotes by Takayuki Yamaguchi
#131. No matter how pathetic or pitiful, every human is fated to have one moment in their lives in which they can change their own destiny. #Quote by Takayuki Yamaguchi
Equality quotes by Caitlin Moran
#132. It's amazing to me that it's still considered a notable, commendable trait –'Oh, she's a well-known feminist' –in a woman, or a girl, or a man, or a boy. That that is the unusual thing. Really, it should be the reverse. Rather than what seems like a minority having to spend time, energy, brain and heart explaining why they're 'into' equality, the majority should be explaining why they're not. You put the time into explaining why –in a world where every concept of justice, wisdom, progress and rightness is a human invention –we still prefer the human concept of 'some people being inferior to others' over 'this is a vast, inky, cold, empty universe, and in it, we are the only humans that exist, all sharing a tiny milky green/ blue world, and faced with a multitude of problems, and an infinite capacity for joy, and should therefore try and stick together and accord each other some respect'. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Equality quotes by Lucy Stone
#133. We ask only for justice and equal rights-the right to vote, the right to our own earnings, equality before the law. #Quote by Lucy Stone
Equality quotes by Barney Frank
#134. I am very proud of the role I played in getting legal equality for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, and in helping get rid of the prejudice by being visible about it, helping to block the conviction of Bill Clinton of impeachment. #Quote by Barney Frank
Equality quotes by John Cage
#135. Corporate Responsibility; Environmental Preservation; Consumer Protection; Sex & Race Discrimination (they must mean Sex and Race Liberation). #Quote by John Cage
Equality quotes by Tamuna Tsertsvadze
#136. Who is a man without a woman? Giving surnames after one's fathers, as if those fathers can bear children without mothers! Without Yin, there is no Yang! Without Yang, there is no Yin! Both of us are needed to make the world run! How come they think they are superior?! #Quote by Tamuna Tsertsvadze
Equality quotes by John G. Lake
#137. The thing that was forfeited in the garden was regained. God gave him [Adam] dominion over the works of His hand. God made him His understudy, His king to rule over everything that had life. Man was master, man lived in the realm of god. He lived on terms of equality with God. God was a faith God. All God had to do was to believe that the sun was, and the sun was. All God had to do was to believe that the planets would be, and they were. Man belonged to God's class of being - a faith man, And he lived in the creative realm of God #Quote by John G. Lake
Equality quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#138. The world needs madness, a madness for justice, a madness for harmony, a madness for equality, a madness for humanitarian glory. If everyone had the madness for doing good, there wouldn't be any misery in the world. So, be mad, be furious, be rebellious towards every bit of misery, inequality and injustice in the world. Remember, every injustice anywhere in the world is your business, every misery anywhere in the world is your business, every segregation anywhere in the world is your business. Human condition anywhere in the world is your business. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Equality quotes by Samuel Johnson
#139. Disease generally begins that equality which death completes. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Equality quotes by Charles Dickens
#140. Liberty, equality, fraternity, or death; - the last, much the easiest to bestow, O Guillotine! #Quote by Charles Dickens
Equality quotes by Oscar Wilde
#141. There is a great deal to be said in favour of reading a novel backwards. The last page is as a rule the most interesting, and when one begins with the catastrophe or the dénouement one feels on pleasant terms of equality with the author. It is like going behind the scenes of a theatre. One is no longer taken in, and the hair-breadth escapes of the hero and the wild agonies of the heroine leave one absolutely unmoved. One knows the jealously guarded secret, and one can afford to smile at the quite unnecessary anxiety that the puppets of fiction always consider it their duty to display. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Equality quotes by Oscar Auliq-Ice
#142. If capitalism was under another system which regulated it, so that supplies would fit the demand, rather than the suppliers trying to manipulate demands with deception to sell, then capitalism would be a great system. #Quote by Oscar Auliq-Ice
Equality quotes by David Levithan
#143. I know that of all the great shifts that have occurred in America
the freedom of slaves, the rights of women, the equality of gays and lesbians
none has happened easily, and certainly none has happened instantly and without serious attacks and backlash. But the reason we have these things is because the fair-minded people who came before us would not give up. In my life, I have seen elections stolen
either outright or through the electoral college. I have seen wars fought because there was no other way to get peace. I have seen the rich get richer and I have seen the poor get poorer. I have seen facts get harder and harder to hide
and easier and easier to manipulate. I have been angry and I have been frustrated and I have been ecstatic and I have been proven right and wrong and back again. I have given up on some things, but I have refused to give up on most things. And I can honestly say that all of it
all of it
seems to have led me to where we are, here and now. #Quote by David Levithan
Equality quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#144. There cannot be friendship without equality. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Equality quotes by Angela Davis
#145. Feminism involves so much more than gender equality and it involves so much more than gender. Feminism must involve consciousness of capitalism (I mean the feminism that I relate to, and there are multiple feminisms, right). So it has to involve a consciousness of capitalism and racism and colonialism and post-colonialities, and ability and more genders than we can even imagine and more sexualities than we ever thought we could name. #Quote by Angela Davis
Equality quotes by John Stuart Mill
#146. All persons are deemed to have a right to equality of treatment, except when some recognized social expediency requires the reverse. And hence all social inequalities which have ceased to be considered expedient assume the character, not of simple inexpediency, but of injustice, and appear so tyrannical that people are apt to wonder how they ever could have been tolerated - forgetful that they themselves, perhaps, tolerate other inequalities under an equally mistaken notion of expediency, the correction of which would make that which they approve seem quite as monstrous as what they have at last learned to condemn. The entire history of social improvement has been a series of transitions by which one custom or institution after another, from being a supposed primary necessity of social existence, has passed into the rank of a universally stigmatized injustice and tyranny. So it has been with the distinctions of slaves and freemen, nobles and serfs, patricians and plebians; and so it will be, and in part already is, with the aristocracies of color, race, and sex. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Equality quotes by Robin DiAngelo
#147. Narratives of racial exceptionality obscure the reality of ongoing institutional white control while reinforcing ideologies of individualism and meritocracy. They also do whites a disservice by obscuring the white allies behind the scenes who worked hard and long to open the field. These allies could serve as much-needed role models for other whites. #Quote by Robin DiAngelo
Equality quotes by Judith Martin
#148. Women were brought up to have only one set of manners. A woman was either a lady or she wasn't, and we all know what the latter meant. Not even momentary lapses were allowed; there is no female equivalent of the boys-will-be-boys concept. #Quote by Judith Martin
Equality quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#149. I believe one day a 'ban on gay marriage' will sound totally ridiculous. In the meantime, I will continue to speak out for equality for all of us. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Equality quotes by Hannah Arendt
#150. The public sphere is as consistently based on the law of equality as the private sphere is based on the law of universal difference and differentiation. Equality, in contrast to all that is involved in mere existence, is not given us, but is the result of human organization insofar as it is guided by the principle of justice. We are not born equal; we become equal as members of a group on the strength of our decision to guarantee ourselves mutually equal rights. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Equality quotes by Margaret Halsey
#151. Passionately prejudiced people always turn out, under scrutiny, to be people who cannot get along on a footing of equality with anyone ... #Quote by Margaret Halsey
Equality quotes by Oppong Amankwaa
#152. ALL human beings are equal no matter their race,social, political and economic status. No one can eat, excrete, sleep, bear your pains and die your death for you no matter your might. #Quote by Oppong Amankwaa
Equality quotes by Paul Dirac
#153. I should like to suggest to you that the cause of all the economic troubles is that we have an economic system which tries to maintain an equality of value between two things, which it would be better to recognise from the beginning as of unequal value. #Quote by Paul Dirac
Equality quotes by Mary Roberts Rinehart
#154. Men were not equal in the effort they made, nor did equal efforts bring equal result ... Equality of opportunity, yes. Equality of effort and result, no. #Quote by Mary Roberts Rinehart
Equality quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#155. Popular privileges are consistent with a state of society in which there is great inequality of position. Democratic rights, on the contrary, demand that there should be equality of condition as the fundamental basis of the society they regulate. #Quote by Benjamin Disraeli
Equality quotes by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
#156. The object of civil society is justice, not truth, virtue, wealth, knowledge, glory or power. Justice is followed by equality and liberty. #Quote by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
Equality quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#157. Called to the throne by the voice of the people, my maxim has always been: A career open to talent without distinction of birth. It is this system of equality for which the European oligarchy detests me #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Equality quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#158. Poverty often puts some people below the law. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Equality quotes by Samuel Johnson
#159. Subordination tends greatly to human happiness. Were we all upon an equality, we should have no other enjoyment than mere animal pleasure. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Equality quotes by Tariq Ramadan
#160. This simple truth is the essence of my message to Muslims throughout the world: know who you are, who you want to be, and start talking and working with whom you are not. Find common values and build with fellow citizens a society based on diversity and equality. #Quote by Tariq Ramadan
Equality quotes by Fatima Jinnah
#161. The movement of Pakistan which the Quaid-e-Azam launched was ethical in inspiration and ideological in content. The story of this movement is a story of the ideals of equality, fraternity and social and economic justice struggling against the forces of domination, exploitation, intolerance and tyranny. #Quote by Fatima Jinnah
Equality quotes by Ivan Illich
#162. The American university has become the final stage of the most all encompassing initiation rite the world has ever known. No society in history has been able to survive without ritual or myth, but ours is the first which has needed such a dull, protracted, destructive, and expensive initiation into its myth. The contemporary world civilization is also the first one which has found it necessary to rationalize its fundamental initiation ritual in the name of education. We cannot begin a reform of education unless we first understand that neither individual learning nor social equality can be enhanced by the ritual of schooling. We cannot go beyond the consumer society unless we first understand that obligatory public schools inevitably reproduce such a society, no matter what is taught in them. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Equality quotes by Madalyn Murray O'Hair
#163. Well, as a militant feminist, I believe in complete equality with men: intellectual, professional, economic, social and sexual; they're all equally essential, and they're all equally lacking in American society today. #Quote by Madalyn Murray O'Hair
Equality quotes by Ed Miliband
#164. This is a proud day and an important step forward in the fight for equality in Britain. The overwhelming majority of Labour MPs supported this change to make sure marriage reflects the value we place on long-term, loving relationships whoever you love. #Quote by Ed Miliband
Equality quotes by Melinda Gates
#165. If you want to lift up humanity, empower women. It is the most comprehensive, pervasive, high-leverage investment you can make in human beings. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Equality quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#166. The year was 2081, and everyone was finally equal. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Equality quotes by Jay Parini
#167. We should never forget that Americans continue to advocate for individual liberty, equality and self-governance. We often step in when it's necessary to help countries in need. But our history needs no whitewashing. To attempt this does us a terrible disservice. #Quote by Jay Parini
Equality quotes by Demi Lovato
#168. I'm an American for marriage equality. I believe that love comes in all different shapes, sizes, and colors. So whether you're LGBT or straight, your love is valid, beautiful, and an incredible gift. #Quote by Demi Lovato
Equality quotes by Mario J. Lucero
#169. The movers & shakers of the world are not imbued with special powers. Once you realize that, you too can attain your rightful mantle. #Quote by Mario J. Lucero
Equality quotes by Zachary Quinto
#170. It became clear to me in an instant that living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality. #Quote by Zachary Quinto
Equality quotes by Bill Maher
#171. But females in even the most advanced Muslim countries are simply, by law, not the equal of men. #Quote by Bill Maher
Equality quotes by Jonathan Abrams
#172. Ed Burns: You can rescue a child, but you can't rescue the children, and the the difference. Opportunity is a much better word than hope. If a child sees the opportunity and you can direct the child toward the opportunity, then the kid's okay. Hope is like a dream. #Quote by Jonathan Abrams
Equality quotes by John Howard Griffin
#173. I spent years," he told me, "studying the phenomenon of love."
"And I spend years studying the phenomenon of justice."
"At base, we spend years studying the same thing. #Quote by John Howard Griffin
Equality quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#174. If anything qualifies as an irony of history it would be this: that Marx and Engels throughout the nineteenth century wrote about America the United States as the great country of the future, of freedom and equality and a good life for the working man, and a country of revolution and emancipation, and of Russia as the great country of despotism, backwardness, savagery and superstition. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Equality quotes by Mary Ann Glendon
#175. It is becoming plain that our liberal regime of equality and personal freedom depends, more than most theorists of liberalism have been willing to admit, on the existence and support of certain social assumptions and practices: the belief that each and every human being possesses great and inherent value, the willingness to respect the rights of others even at the cost of some disadvantages to one's self, the ability to defer some immediate benefits for the sake of long-range goals, and a regard for reason-giving and civility in public discourse. #Quote by Mary Ann Glendon
Equality quotes by Shirley Chisholm
#176. When the Kerner Commission told white America what black America has always known, that prejudice and hatred built the nation's slums, maintains them and profits by them, white America could not believe it. But it is true. Unless we start to fight and defeat the enemies in our own country, poverty and racism, and make our talk of equality and opportunity ring true, we are exposed in the eyes of the world as hypocrites when we talk about making people free - (Chapter 9). #Quote by Shirley Chisholm
Equality quotes by Peter Singer
#177. My aim is to advocate that we make this mental switch in respect of our attitudes and practices towards a very large group of beings: members of species other than our own - or, as we popularly though misleadingly call them, animals. In other words, I am urging that we extend to other species the basic principle of equality that most of us recognize should be extended to all members of our own species. #Quote by Peter Singer
Equality quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#178. Hamilton, the most brilliant American statesman who ever lived, possessing the loftiest and keenest intellect of his time, was of course easily the foremost champion in the ranks of the New York Federalists; second to him came Jay, pure, strong and healthy in heart, body, and mind. Both of them watched with uneasy alarm the rapid drift toward anarchy; and both put forth all their efforts to stem the tide. They were of course too great men to fall in with the views of those whose antagonism to tyranny made them averse from order. They had little sympathy with the violent prejudices produced by the war. In particular they abhorred the vindictive laws directed against the persons and property of Tories; and they had the manliness to come forward as the defenders of the helpless and excessively unpopular Loyalists. They put a stop to the wrongs which were being inflicted on these men, and finally succeeded in having them restored to legal equality with other citizens, standing up with generous fearlessness against the clamor of the mob. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Equality quotes by Barry M. Goldwater
#179. Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies. Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed. Their mistaken course stems from false notions of equality, ladies and gentlemen. Equality, rightly understood, as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences. Wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism. Fellow Republicans, it is the cause of Republicanism to resist concentrations of power, private or public, which enforce such conformity and inflict such despotism. It is the cause of Republicanism to ensure that power remains in the hands of the people. #Quote by Barry M. Goldwater
Equality quotes by Robert Flello
#180. True Christians are not bigoted and this is actually not a matter of equality, no matter how often it is referred to as equal marriage. Civil partnerships are equal to marriage - they might not have the same name but they are equal. #Quote by Robert Flello
Equality quotes by Nikki DiCaro
#181. Knowledge is the foundation for understanding; understanding the catalyst for peace. #Quote by Nikki DiCaro
Equality quotes by Mary McCarthy
#182. In science, all facts, no matter how trivial or banal, enjoy democratic equality. #Quote by Mary McCarthy
Equality quotes by Peter Drucker
#183. With Christianity, freedom and equality became the two basic concepts of Europe; they are themselves Europe. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Equality quotes by Barbara Boxer
#184. We are all different. Yet we are all God's children. We are all united behind this country and the common cause of freedom, justice, fairness, and equality. That is what unites us. #Quote by Barbara Boxer
Equality quotes by Stetson Kennedy
#185. There is more than one way to be Kluxed, and we need to think about ourselves and the kind of people we elect into public office. #Quote by Stetson Kennedy
Equality quotes by Gary Gygax
#186. Although the masculine form of appellation is typically used when listing the level titles of the various types of characters, these names can easily be changed to the feminine if desired. This is fantasy--what's in a name? In all but a few cases sex makes no difference to ability! #Quote by Gary Gygax
Equality quotes by Katherine Cecil Thurston
#187. Nobody is such an individualist as the man who advocates equality. #Quote by Katherine Cecil Thurston

Equality quotes by Alan Bennett
#189. To her all books were the same and, as with her subjects, she felt a duty to approach them without prejudice ... Lauren Bacall, Winifred Holtby, Sylvia Plath - who were they? Only be reading could she find out. #Quote by Alan Bennett
Equality quotes by Elizabeth A. Johnson
#190. Whether consciously or not, sexist God language undermines the human equality of women made in the divine image and likeness. #Quote by Elizabeth A. Johnson
Equality quotes by Alain De Benoist
#191. When it comes to specifying the values particular to paganism, people have generally listed features such as these: an eminently aristocratic conception of the human individual; an ethics founded on honor ("shame" rather than "sin"); an heroic attitude toward life's challenges; the exaltation and sacralization of the world, beauty, the body, strength, health; the rejection of any "worlds beyond"; the inseparability of morality and aesthetics; and so on. From this perspective, the highest value is undoubtedly not a form of "justice" whose purpose is essentially interpreted as flattening the social order in the name of equality, but everything that can allow a man to surpass himself. To paganism, it is pure absurdity to consider the results of the workings of life's basic framework as unjust. In the pagan ethic of honor, the classic antithesis noble vs. base, courageous vs. cowardly, honorable vs. dishonorable, beautiful vs. deformed, sick vs. healthy, and so forth, replace the antithesis operative in a morality based on the concept of sin: good vs. evil, humble vs. vainglorious, submissive vs. proud, weak vs. arrogant, modest vs. boastful, and so on. However, while all this appears to be accurate, the fundamental feature in my opinion is something else entirely. It lies in the denial of dualism. #Quote by Alain De Benoist
Equality quotes by Gustavo Arellano
#192. Your life depends on a random stranger who could kill you, will probably disrespect you, and will most likely pay you much less than you deserve. But even those prospects are better than the ones you used to have. This is the life of los jornaleros – the day laborers. #Quote by Gustavo Arellano
Equality quotes by Christine Warren
#193. I do not doubt your intellectual or spiritual equality with me, mate. When I saw you belong to me, it is only because I belong so utterly to you, as well. #Quote by Christine Warren

#194. There can be no equality in the boardroom until there is in the bedroom. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Equality quotes by Ellen Page
#195. I call myself a feminist when people ask me if I am, and of course I am 'cause it's about equality, so I hope everyone is. You know you're working in a patriarchal society when the word "feminist" has a weird connotation. #Quote by Ellen Page
Equality quotes by Chris Matakas
#196. Today's world is flooded with participation trophies. In an attempt to promote equality we have robbed our youth of the most growth-inducing aspect of competition, failing. If you want to be resurrected, you have to first be crucified. Everybody wants to be reborn, but no one is willing to die. Losing, in the context of whatever arena it may be, is a microcosmic death. When we learn from our failures and grow because of them, we are reborn. #Quote by Chris Matakas
Equality quotes by Deborah L. Parker
#197. Plus I have no doubt that their garden is also where my grandparents dreamed - for a better life of equality for their grandchildren and future generations. As people rooted in their faith, they probably did a lot of praying here as well, that God would deliver us all to prosperity and peace beyond this plot of land. #Quote by Deborah L. Parker
Equality quotes by David Hume
#198. Historians, and even common sense, may inform us, that, however specious these ideas of perfect equality may seem, they are really, at bottom, impracticable; and were they not so, would be extremely pernicious to human society. Render possessions ever so equal, men's different degrees of art, care, and industry will immediately break that equality. Or if you check these virtues, you reduce society to the most extreme indigence; and instead of preventing want and beggary in a few, render it unavoidable to the whole community. The most rigorous inquisition too is requisite to watch every inequality on its first appearance; and the most severe jurisdiction, to punish and redress it. But besides, that so much authority must soon degenerate into tyranny, and be exerted with great partialities; who can possibly be possessed of it, in such a situation as is here supposed? Perfect equality of possessions, destroying all subordination, weakens extremely the authority of magistracy, and must reduce all power nearly to a level, as well as property.
We may conclude, therefore, that in order to establish laws for the regulation of property, we must be acquainted with the nature and situation of man; must reject appearances, which may be false, though specious; and must search for those rules, which are, on the whole, most useful and beneficial. #Quote by David Hume
Equality quotes by Sally Kohn
#199. But perhaps the next step isn't to, once again, expand the otherwise narrow definition of marriage but to altogether abolish the false distinction between married families and other equally valid but unrecognized partnerships. #Quote by Sally Kohn
Equality quotes by John Marshall
#200. The Constitution is colorblind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens. #Quote by John Marshall
