All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.george orwell
[I] can’t actually imagine a time in which the need for more diversity would ever cease. Affirmative action has been an issue since segregation practices. The question is not when does it end, but when does it begin [...] When do people of color truly get the benefits to which they are entitled?eric holder
I propose to use whatever authority exists in the office of the President to end segregation in the District of Columbia, including the Federal Government, and any segregation in the Armed Forces.dwight Eisenhower
Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it.malcolm (malcolm little) x
Pornography has been so thickly glossed over with the patina of chic these days in the name of verbal freedom and sophisication… Part of the problem is that those who traditionally have been the most vigorous opponents of porn are often those same people who shudder at the explicit mention of any sexual subject… There can be no equality in porn, no female equivalent, no turning of the tables in the name of bawdy fun. Pornography, like rape, is a male invention, desgined to dehumanize women… Pornography is the undiluted essence of anti-female propoganda.Susan Brownmiller
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Equality, in a social sense, may be divided into that of condition and that of rights.

For if all things were equally in all men, nothing would be prized.thomas hobbes
La majestueuse égalité des lois, qui interdit au riche comme au pauvre de coucher sous les ponts, de mendier dans les rues et de voler du pain.
Fourscore and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.Abraham Lincoln
Equality of two domestic powers Breeds scrupulous faction.william shakespeare
Heralds, from off our towers we might behold, From first to last, the onset and retire Of both your armies; whose equality By our best eyes cannot be censured: Blood hath bought blood and blows have answer'd blows; Strength match'd with strength, and power confronted power: Both are alike; and both alike we like.william shakespeare
She in beauty, education, blood, Holds hand with any princess of the world.william shakespeare
Equality is the life of conversation; and he is as much out who assumes to himself any part above another, as he who considers himself below the rest of the society.richard steele
It is not true that equality is a law of nature. Nature has made nothing equal; her sovereign law is subordination and dependence.
[E]quality is not the empirical claim that all groups of humans are interchangeable; it is the moral principle that individuals should not be judged or constrained by the average properties of their group. … If we recognize this principle, no one has to spin myths about the indistinguishability of the sexes to justify equality.
Quod ad jus naturale attinet, omnes homines æquales sunt.
The tall, the wise, the reverend head, Must be as low as ours.Isaac Watts
