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
I keep no rank nor station. Cured, I am frizzled, stale and small.1956 'Home After Three Months Away'.
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
"If you loved as I do,' she earnestly replied, 'you would not have so nearly lost me - these scruples of false delicacy and pride would never thus have troubled you - you would have seen that the greatest worldly distinctions and discrepancies of rank, birth, and fortune are as dust in the balance compared with the unity of accordant thoughts and feelings, and truly loving, sympathising hearts and souls."anne brontë
Hoyle's enduring insights into stars, nucleosynthesis, and the large-scale universe rank among the greatest achievements of 20th-century astrophysics. Moreover, his theories were unfailingly stimulating, even when they proved transient.fred hoyle
Whenever it was necessary to have a large entourage, we used military vehicles or, as for the two state funerals and our state swearing in, we hired every spare Cadillac from every undertaking firm in Ottawa. It's a make-shift way to operate a country of the size and rank of Canada.judy lamarsh
I have always held those political opinions which point to the universal brotherhood of man, no matter in what rank of life he may have taken his origin.alexander mackenzie
The education of the common people requires, perhaps, in a civilized and commercial society, the attention of the public more than that of people of some rank and fortune.Adam Smith
Music must take rank as the highest of the fine arts — as the one which, more than any other, ministers to human welfare.Herbert Spencer
We cannot afford to raise any institution to the rank of a fetish. To do so would be simply to become the slaves of our own machinery.sri aurobindo
I find wholly baffling the widespread belief today that the dropping of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs was an immoral act, even possibly a war crime to rank with Nazi genocide.j. g. ballard
Let no one dare to call another mad who is not himself willing to rank in the same class for every perversion and fault of judgment. Let no one dare aid in punishing another as criminal who is not willing to suffer the penalty due to his own offenses.margaret fuller
This work is not for the many; but in the unconscious, perfectly natural, irony of self-delusion, in all parts intelligible to the intelligent reader, without the slightest suspicion on the part of the autobiographer, I know of no equal in our literature…This and The Entail would alone suffice to place Galt in the first rank of contemporary novelists.john galt
:;:; The chessboard was reflected in her eyes. 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
It is of great advantage that man should know his station, and not imagine that the whole universe exists only for him. We hold that the universe exists because the Creator wills it so; that mankind is low in rank as compared with the uppermost portion of the universe, viz., with the spheres and the stars; but, as regards the angels, there cannot be any real comparison between man and angels, although man is the highest of all beings on earth; i.e., of all the beings formed of the four elements.maimonides
It is also not entirely unworthy of observation, that in declaring what shall be the supreme law of the land, the constitution itself is first mentioned; and not the laws of the United States generally, but those only which shall be made in pursuance of the constitution, have that rank. Thus, the particular phraseology of the constitution of the United States confirms and strengthens the principle, supposed to be essential to all written constitutions, that a law repugnant to the constitution is void; and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument.john marshall
The fact that the stars predict high or low rank for the father of the person whose horoscope is taken, teaches that they do not always make things happen but sometimes only indicate things. For how could things which preceded the birth depend upon the birth?sallustius
You have power, rank, command, influence; we have wealth, the source both of our strength and weakness; the value of these toys, ten times multiplied, would not influence half so much as your slightest wish.walter scott
Man only, rash, refined, presumptuous Man Starts from his rank, and mars Creation's plan! Born the free heir of nature's wide domain, To art's strict limits bounds his narrow'd reign; Resigns his native rights for meaner things, For Faith and Fetters, Laws and Priests and Kings.Poetry of the Anti-Jacobin, The Progress of Man, line 55.
The rank is but the guinea's stamp, The man's the gowd for a' that.Robert Burns
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, p. 455. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers)
The idea of preaching the gospel to all nations alike, regardless of nationality, of internal divisions as to rank and color, complexion and religion, constituted the beginning of a new era in history. You cannot preach the gospel in its purity over the world, without proclaiming the doctrine of civil and religious liberty, without overthrowing the barriers reared between nations and clans and classes of men, without ultimately undermining the thrones of despots, and breaking off the shackles of slavery, without making men everywhere free.Albert Barnes, p. 289. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
One who recieves a rank with cunning will act in the position like a wolf.As quoted in Will Graves, Wolves in Russia: Anxiety throughout the Ages, (2007)
We have already seen that rank in business is, at best, a shaky thing and that the organization chart is a poor device for showing it.Karol White (1963) Understanding the company organization chart. p. 73
I think, whatever mortals crave, With impotent endeavor, A wreath a rank a throne a grave The world goes round forever; I think that life is not too long, And therefore I determine, That many people read a song, Who will not read a sermon.W. M. Praed, Chant of the Brazen Head.
Yet some there be that by due steps aspire To lay thir just hands on that golden key That opes the palace of Eternity. To such my errand is; and but for such, I would not soil these pure ambrosial weeds With the rank vapours of this sin-worn mould.John Milton in Comus : A Mask (1634), line 13
Let the world rank me in register A master-leaver and a fugitive: O Antony! O Antony!Enobarbus, scene ix (Act IV)
O! my offence is rank, it smells to heaven.Claudius, scene iii
