The organization chart is a graphic representation of the departmentalization process. Most organization charts are positional; that is, they are organized by title and rankBarbara J. Stevens Barnum, Karlene M. Kerfoot (1995) The Nurse as Executive. p. 64
Liberty is, to the lowest rank of every nation, little more than the choice of working or starving.1760 'The Bravery of the English Common Soldier', in The British Magazine, Jan.
As no one can adventure nearer the throne of God by virtue of his rank, his wealth, or his talent, so no one is kept farther from that throne by his low condition, or by his poverty of wealth, of learning, or of intellect. The prince and the sage are not more welcome to heaven than the poor and ignorant.albert barnes
At the mention of the name and offence of this degraded being a great sound went up from the entire multitude – a universal cry of execration, not greatly dissimilar from that which may be frequently heard in the crowded Temple of Impartiality when the one whose duty it is to take up, at a venture, the folded papers, announces that the sublime Emperor, or some mandarin of exalted rank, has been so fortunate as to hold the winning number in the Annual State Lottery.ernest bramah

Eager to beat her, first I looked on her eyes. :;:; I made a Spanish move, an ancient one, and broken was the red rank of pawns in her light eyes. :;:; Then I lowered my eyes from that chessboard and Love said, "Oh not her; conquer the king if you can."paul goodman
When you tread water, you lift yourself up by pushing water down. Likewise, in any social hierarchy, people unsure of their own position will try to emphasize it by maltreating those they think rank below. I've read that this is why poor whites in the United States are the group most hostile to blacks.paul graham
The only people who accept slavery are the Negroes, owing to their low degree of humanity and proximity to the animal stage. Other persons who accept the status of slave do so as a means of attaining high rank, or power, or wealth, as is the case with the Mameluke Turks in the East and with those Franks and Galicians who enter the service of the state [in Spain].Ibn Khaldun as quoted in Bernard Lewis, Race and Color in Islam, Harper and Row, 1970, quote on page 38. The brackets are displayed by Lewis.
Mathematics is the queen of the sciences and number theory is the queen of mathematics. She often condescends to render service to astronomy and other natural sciences, but in all relations she is entitled to the first rank.Carl Friedrich Gauss, in Gauss zum Gedächtniss (1856) by Wolfgang Sartorius von Waltershausen, as translated in Memorabilia Mathematica; or, The Philomath's Quotation-Book (1914) by Robert Édouard Moritz, p. 271
In wartime, however, the prohibition against targeted killing is more elusive because the law stipulates that combatants, regardless of their rank or official role, are potential targets. Since war is a contest between states, not persons, the killing in war is not murder.Amstutz, Mark R. (2008). International Ethics: Concepts, Theories, and Cases in Global Politics. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc. p. 147. ISBN 0742556042.
The people of the Qur’an (those who recite and those who memorize the Qur’an) will be in the highest level (in Heaven) from amongst all of the people with the exception of the Prophets and Messengers. Thus, do not seek to degrade the people of the Qur’an, nor take away their rights, for surely they have been given a high rank by Allah.Thawabul A’mal, Page 224 (Shi'ite Hadith)
Jesus , in some respects, was an anarchist, for he had no idea of civil government . That government seems to him purely and simply an abuse. A great social revolution, in which rank will be overturned, in which all authority in this world will be humiliated, was his dream .Ernest Renan, in The Life of Jesus (1863), Ch. XII: Development of the ideas of Jesus respecting the Kingdom of God
