Equal Quotes

Time does not, and shall never, equal experience.

Alistair Harding

A youth is to be regarded with respect. How do you know that his future will not be equal to our present?

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.

Simone Weil

All men have an equal right to the free development of their faculties; they have an equal right to the impartial protection of the state; but it is not true, it is against all the laws of reason and equity, it is against the eternal nature of things

Victor Cousin

In the state of nature...all men are born equal, but they cannot continue in this equality. Society makes them lose it, and they recover it only by the protection of the law.

Charles de Montesquieu

Equality...is the result of human organization. We are not born equal.

Hannah Arendt

All men have equal rights to liberty, to their property, and to the protection of the laws

Voltaire

All fits of pleasure are balanced by an equal degree of pain or languor; it is like spending this year part of the next year's revenues

Jonathan Swift

Men are equal; it is not birth but virtue that makes the difference

Voltaire

Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can't buy more hours. Scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.

Denis Waitely

The height of your accomplishments will equal the depth of your convictions.

William F. Scolavino

We must not allow ourselves to be deflected by the feminists who are anxious to force us to regard the two sexes as completely equal in position and worth

Sigmund Freud

I do not believe we are all created equal. Physical and emotional differences, parental guidance, varying environments, being in the right place at the right time all play a role in enhancing or limiting development. But I do believe every man and woman, if given the opportunity and encouragement to recognize their potential, regardless of background, has the freedom to choose in our world. Will an individual be a taker or a giver in life? Will he be satisfied merely to exist, or will he seek a meaningful purpose? Will he dare to dream the impossible dream?

zzz

Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality.

Ralph Marston

I'm convinced that it's energy and humor. The two of them combined equal charm.

Judith Krantz

One person with a belief is a social power equal to ninety-nine who have only interests.

John Stuart Mill

We do not live an equal life, but one of contrasts and patchwork; now a little joy, then a sorrow, now a sin, then a generous or brave actioî

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein's brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.

Stephen Jay Gould

Nations are equal in respect to each other, and entitled to claim equal consideration for their rights, whatever may be their relative dimensions or strength or however greatly they may differ in government, religion or manners

Unknown

For the first time in history, hits and niches are on equal economic footing, both just entries in a database called up on demand, both equally worthy of being carried. Suddenly, popularity no longer has a monopoly on profitability.

Chris Anderson

I think it's a very confused culture. On the one hand, no one is better than anyone else; no one is prettier. On the other hand, everyone is completely obsessed by their looks and by how they strike the world. On the one hand, we're all equal; on the other hand, everyone's a superstar. It's all very irrational, like all ideology.

Martin Amis

Seventy thousand angels worship near the grave of Imām Husayn (a). The prayer (salah) of one of them, is equal to a thousand prayers of mankind. The reward of this prayer is for the visitors of Imām Husayn's (a) grave. The curse of Allah, His angels and all mankind is forever upon the killers of Imām Husayn (a).

Jafar ibn Muhammad as-S

The young have exalted notions, because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations; moreover, their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great thingsand that means having exalted notions. They would always rather do noble deeds than useful ones: Their lives are regulated more by moral feeling than by reasoning.... All their mistakes are in the direction of doing things excessively and vehemently. They overdo everything; they love too much, hate too much, and the same with everything else.

Aristotle

It is the compelling power of great thoughts and ideas to engender phrases of equal size.

Aristophanes
