Favorite Caste Quotes

1. "It was a masterly piece of work. But once you began admitting explanations in terms of purpose— well, you didn't know what the result might be. It was the sort of idea that might easily decondition the more unsettled minds among the higher castes—make them lose their faith in happiness as the Sovereign Good and take to believing, instead, that the goal was somewhere beyond, somewhere outside the present human sphere; that the purpose of life was not the maintenance of well-being, but some intensification and refining of consciousness, some enlargement of knowledge. Which was, the Controller reflected, quite possibly true. But not, in the present circumstance, admissible."
Author: Aldous Huxley
2. "A pity, he thought, as he signed his name. It was a masterly piece of work. But once you began admitting explanations in terms of purpose-well, you didn't know what the result might be. It was the sort of idea that might easily decondition the more unsettled minds among the higher castes-make them lose their faith in happiness as the Sovereign Good and take to believing, instead, that the goal was somewhere beyond, somewhere outside the present human sphere, that the purpose of life was not the maintenance of well-being, but some intensification and refining of consciousness, some enlargement of knowledge. Which was, the Controller reflected, quite possibly true. But not, in the present circumstance, admissible. He picked up his pen again, and under the words "Not to be published" drew a second line, thicker and blacker than the first; then sighed, "What fun it would be," he thought, "if one didn't have to think about happiness!"
Author: Aldous Huxley
3. "Recuerdo muy bien la emoción, la alegría que sentí al pisar el acelerador. Si ha habido alguna vez una mujer enamorada, ésa era yo. Si alguna vez he estado enamorada, fue entonces, el día que viajé desde la provincia de Cuenca hasta la de Castellón, conduciendo por carreteras secundarias con un Ford Fiesta rojo que se ahogaba en todas las cuestas y un corazón tan grande que no me cabía en el cuerpo.Era demasiado amor. Demasiado grande, demasiado complicado, demasiado confuso, y arriesgado, y fecundo, y doloroso. Tanto como yo podía dar, más del que me convenía. Por eso se rompió. No se agotó, no se acabó, no se murió, sólo se rompió, se vino abajo como una torre demasiado alta, como una apuesta demasiado alta, como una esperanza demasiado alta."
Author: Almudena Grandes

Author: Charlotte Brontë

Author: Chetan Bhagat

"Edward:Well Mortimer, ile make thee rue these words,Beseemes it thee to contradict thy king?Frownst thou thereat, aspiring Lancaster,The sworde shall plane the furrowes of thy browes,And hew these knees that now are growne so stiffe.I will have Gaveston, and you shall know,What danger tis to stand against your king.Gaveston:Well doone, Ned."
Author: Christopher Marlowe
12. "If you're ever being typecasted - as most of us are - that's a great way to be typecasted. So, 'The Rifleman' is still popular with a lot of people, and I'm proud to be associated."
Author: Chuck Connors
13. "The world is a crazy, beautiful, ugly complicated place, and it keeps moving on from crisis to strangeness to beauty to weirdness to tragedy. The caravan keeps moving on, and the job of the longform writer or filmmaker or radio broadcaster is to stop - is to pause - and when the caravan goes away, that's when this stuff comes."
Author: David Remnick
14. "Ser Frodo, ser un ciudadano participativo, requerirá hacer una "declaración de fe" como la frase que acuñó Rosario Castellanos. Una filosofía personal basada en la premisa que la acción individual y colectiva sí sirve. Una lista de reglas para ver y andar, vivir y cambiar, exigir y no sólo presenciar. Un conjunto de creencias que son tregua contra el pesimismo, antídoto para la apatía, recordatorio del destino imaginado. Un ideario con el cual combatir el desconsuelo que deja leer los periódicos o ver los noticieros de manera cotidiana."
Author: Denise Dresser

Author: Dick Dale
16. "The owners and top managers of most news media organizations tend to be conservative and Republican. This is hardly surprising. The shareholders and executives of multi-billion-dollar corporations are not very interested in undermining the free enterprise system, for example, income from offended advertisers. These owners and managers ultimately decide which reporters, newscasters, and editors to hire or fire, promote or discourage. Journalists who want to get a head, therefore, may have to come to terms with the policies of the people who own and run media businesses."
Author: Edward S. Greenberg

19. "A settembre succedono giorni di cielo sceso in terra. Si abbassa il ponte levatoio del suo castello in aria e giù per una scala azzurra il cielo si appoggia per un poco al suolo. A dieci anni potevo vedere i gradini squadrati, da poterli risalire cogli occhi. Oggi mi contento di averli visti e di credere che ci sono ancora. Settembre è il mese delle nozze tra la superficie terrestre e lo spazio di sopra acceso dalla luce. Sulle terrazze gradinate a viti i pescatori fanno i contadini e raccolgono i grappoli nei cesti fatti dalle donne. Prima ancora di spremerli, il giorno di vendemmia ubriaca gli scalzi tra i filari al sole e lo sciame delle vespe assetate."
Author: Erri De Luca

Author: Gary Lineker
21. "I doobt the fau't's nae sae muckle i' my temper as i' my hert. It's mair love that I want, Tibbie. Gin I lo'ed my neebor as mysel', I cudna be sae ill-natert till him; though 'deed, whiles, I'm angry eneuch at mysel' — a hantle waur nor at him." "Verra true, Thamas," answered Tibbie. "Perfect love casteth oot fear, 'cause there's nae room for the twa o' them; and I daursay it wad be the same wi' the temper."
Author: George MacDonald
22. "It was possible, no doubt, to imagine a society in which wealth, in the sense of personal possessions and luxuries, should be evenly distributed, while power remained in the hands of a small privileged caste. But in practice such a society could not long remain stable. For if leisure and security were enjoyed by all alike, the great mass of human beings who are normally stupefied by poverty would become literate and would learn to think for themselves; and when once they had done this, they would sooner or later realise that the privileged minority had no function, and they would sweep it away. In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance."
Author: George Orwell
23. "She was simple, not being able to adorn herself, but she was unhappy, as one out of her class; for women belong to no caste, no race, their grace, their beauty and their charm serving them in place of birth and family. Their inborn finesse, their instinctive elegance, their suppleness of wit, are their only aristocracy, making some daughters of the people the equal of great ladies."
Author: Guy De Maupassant
24. "But the only thing to be considered here, is this - what kind of oil is used in coronations? Certainly it cannot be Olive Oil, or Maccasar Oil, nor Caster Oil, nor Bear's Oil, nor Train Oil, nor Cod-Liver Oil. What then can it possibly be but Sperm Oil in it's unmanufactured unpolluted state, the sweetest of all oils?"
Author: Herman Melville
25. "That's one of the biggest losses, I think, to African American families, is that people, once they left, they turned away from the South. They didn't look back, and they often didn't tell their children about it. They didn't want to talk about it. It was too painful, what they'd gone through and the caste system of the South, which was Jim Crow."
Author: Isabel Wilkerson
26. "But in view of the constitution, in the eye of the law, there is in this country no superior, dominant, ruling class of citizens. There is no caste here."

28. "... he said it felt like walking into another century, being there, looking up at the mullion windows, all darkened now, and the castellated towers that rose up out of the clutch of the ivy.

Author: Justine Picardie

Author: Kami Garcia
31. "The newspaper fits the reader's program while the listener must fit the broadcaster's program."
Author: Kingman Brewster Jr.
32. "I had hoped, as a broadcaster, to be merely ludicrous, but this is a hard world to be ludicrous in, with so many human beings so reluctant to laugh, so incapable of thought, so eager to believe and snarl and hate. So many people wanted to believe me!Say what you will about the sweet miracle of unquestioning faith, I consider a capacity for it terrifying and absolutely vile."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Author: Lindsey Buckingham
34. "I'd been brief with her, not wanting her to stress over me and Lia. I mean, she knew I'd narrowly escaped death in freeing Lia from Castel o Paratore, but she didn't know all of the details. That, like, I'd almost been killed a dozen times. You just didn't tell your mom that kind of thing—not if you were trying to keep her from rushing you off to some safe tower."
Author: Lisa Tawn Bergren
35. "Yes, we have to seek redemption! Redemption from the divisive politics based on caste and religion, redemption from the corruption which is eating our lives like termites, redemption from misery of poverty, redemption from the sins of our venal politicians. We need good governance and accountability. An individual has to fight for the things he rightfully deserves. People do not need crutches of any kind if the basic conditions of nation are conducive to their growth. It's ridiculous; people are first deprived of basic amenities, denied their dues and then offered carrots to benefit the vote bank politics."
Author: Madhu Vajpayee
36. "In some cases, the casting directors have casted blindly and have not looked into my ethnic background."
Author: Mario Lopez

Author: Mike Greenberg
38. "How do people, like, not curse? How is it possible? There are these gaps in speech where you just have to put a "fuck." I'll tell you who the most admirable people in the world are: newscasters. If that was me, I'd be like, "And the motherfuckers flew the fucking plane right into the Twin Towers." How could you not, if you're a human being? Maybe they're not so admirable. Maybe they're robot zombies."
Author: Nick Hornby
39. "Era uma vez um rapaz. Vivia numa aldeia que já não existe, numa casa que já não existe, na orla de um campo que já não existe, lugar de todas as descobertas e onde tudo era possível. Um pau podia ser uma espada. Uma pedra podia ser um diamante. Uma árvore um castelo.Era uma vez um rapaz que vivia numa casa do outro lado do campo onde vivia uma rapariga que já não existe. Inventavam mil jogos. Ela era a Rainha e ele o Rei. Na luz do Outono, o cabelo dela brilhava como uma coroa. Bebiam o mundo em pequenas mãos-cheias. Quando o céu escurecia, apartavam-se com folhas nos cabelos."

At that, John Stockton, the Mayor of London, contracted a diplomatic virus and took to his bed."
Author: Sharon Kay Penman
44. "Sewers are necessary to guarantee the wholesomeness of palaces, according to the Fathers of the Church. And it has often been remarked that the necessity exists of sacrificing one part of the female sex in order to save the other and prevent worse troubles. One of the arguments in support of slavery, advanced by the American supporters of the institution, was that the Southern whites, being all freed from servile duties, could maintain the most democratic and refined relations among themselves; in the same way, a caste of 'shameless women' allows the 'honest woman' to be treated with the most chivalrous respect. The prostitute is a scapegoat; man vents his turpitude upon her, and he rejects her. Whether she is put legally under police supervision or works illegally in secret, she is in any case treated as a pariah."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
45. "Love is not about age, or caste, or any definite relation...; it's the ability to see the pain in heart, through the eyes...; feel it, and take a small endeavour to treat it, with faith and patience...!"
Author: Sudeep Prakash Sdk

Author: Victor Hugo

Author: W.E.B. Du Bois
48. "Here an attempt is made to explain suffering: the outcaste of traditional Hinduism is held to deserve his fetched fate; it is a punishment for the wrongs he did in a previous life."
Author: Walter Kaufmann
49. "I'm proud of the fact that besides being known as a successful former football player, I've also worked hard to establish myself as a successful businessman, network broadcaster, sports & entertainment executive and philanthropist."
Author: Warren Moon
50. "Recently, the search for what he calls "the splinters that make up different attention problems" has taken Castellanos in a new direction. First, he explains that your brain is far less concerned with your brilliant ideas or searing emotions than with its own internal "gyroscopic busyness," which consumes 65 percent of its total energy. Every fifty seconds, its activity fluctuates, causing what he calls a "brownout." No one knows the purpose of these neurological events, but Castellanos has a thesis: the clockwork pulses enable the brain's circuits to stay "logged on" and available to communicate with one another, even when they're not being used. "Imagine you're a cabdriver on your day off," Castellanos says. "You don't need to use your workday circuits on a Sunday, but to keep those channels open, your brain sends a ping through them every minute or so. The fluctuations are the brain's investment in maintaining its circuits online."
