Favorite Equality And Equity Quotes

1. "The happy and powerful do not go into exile, and there are no surer guarantees of equality among men than poverty and misfortune."
Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
2. "Indians today are governed by two different ideologies. Their political ideal set in the preamble of the Constitution affirms a life of liberty, equality and fraternity. Their social ideal embodied in their religion denies them."
Author: B. R. Ambedkar
3. "People used to think that private equity was basically just a compensation scheme, but it is much more about making companies more efficient."
Author: David Rubenstein
4. "Christian equality can be described as equity, or even-handedness. Egalitarianism, in contrast, demands sameness, or equality of outcome. These two visions of equality are about as comparable as dry and wet. Think of it in terms of ten teenage boys trying to dunk a basketball: equity means that they all face the same ten-foot standard, and only two them them can do it — equity thus usually means differences in outcome. Egalitarianism wants equality of outcome, and there is only one way to get that — lower the net. Sameness of outcome requires differences in the standards."
Author: Douglas Wilson
5. "Why was it not good for man to be alone? If it were only man's loneliness with which God was concerned, he might have provided other companionship. But he provided woman, for she was to be man's helpmeet. She was to act in partnership with him. . . . The Lord God gave woman a different personality and temperament than man. . . .In the world today there are observed strenuous efforts to distort and desecrate this divine pattern. . . . The conventional wisdom of the day would have you be equal with men. We say, we would not have you descend to that level. More often than not the demand for equality means the destruction of the inspired arrangement that God has decreed for man, woman, and the family. Equality should not be confused with equivalence."
Author: Ezra Taft Benson
6. "Real equality is immensely difficult to achieve, it needs continual revision and monitoring of distributions. And it does not provide buffers between members, so they are continually colliding or frustrating each other."
Author: Mary Douglas
7. "Civilization is built on a number of ultimate principles... respect for human life, the punishment of crimes against property and persons, the equality of all good citizens before the law... or, in a word justice."
Author: Max Nordau
8. "Feminism as a movement for political and social equity is important, but feminism as an academic clique committed to eccentric doctrines about human nature is not. Eliminating discrimination against women is important, but believing that women and men are born with indistinguishable minds is not. Freedom of choice is important, but ensuring that women make up exactly 50 percent of all professions is not. And eliminating sexual assaults is important, but advancing the theory that rapists are doing their part in a vast male conspiracy is not."
Author: Steven Pinker
9. "Genuine equality means not treating everyone the same, but attending equally to everyone's different needs."
Author: Terry Eagleton
10. "...when these matters are discussed by practical people, the standard of justice depends on the equality of power to compel..."
Author: Thucydides

Today's Quote

Âme : Substance inconnue, qui agit d'une façon inconnue sur notre corps que nous ne connaissons guère ; nous devons en conclure que l'âme est spirituelle. Or personne n'ignore ce que c'est que d'être spirituel. L'âme est la partie la plus noble de l'homme, attendu que c'est celle que nous connaissons le moins. Les animaux n'ont point d'âmes, ou n'en ont que de matérielles ; les prêtres et les moines ont des âmes spirituelles, mais quelques-uns d'entre eux ont la malice de ne point les montrer, ce qu'ils font, sans doute, par pure humilité."
Author: Baron D'Holbach
