Mean and mighty, rotting
  Together, have one dust.
      - William Shakespeare

She in beauty, education, blood,
  Holds hand with any princess of the world.
      - William Shakespeare

The king is but a man, as I am; the violet smells to him as it doth to me; the element shows to him as it doth to me; all his senses have but human conditions; his ceremonies laid by, in his nakedness he appears but a man; and though his affections are higher mounted than ours, yet, when they stoop, they stoop with the like wing.
      - William Shakespeare

Thersites's body is as good as Ajax's when neither are alive.
      - William Shakespeare

Our Italy
  Shines o'er with civil swords; Sextus Pompeius
    Makes his approaches to the port of Rome;
      Equality of two domestic powers
        Breeds scrupulous faction; the hated, grown to strength,
          Are newly grown to love; the condemned Pompey,
            Rich in this father's honor, creeps apace
              Into the hearts of such as have not thrived
                Upon the present state, whose numbers threaten;
                  And quietness, grown sick of rest, would purge
                    By any desperate change.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Antony at I, iii)

Though mean and mighty, rotting
  Together, have one dust, yet reverence,
    That angel of the world, doth make distinction
      Of place 'tween high and low.
      - William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
         (Belarius at IV, ii)

To thee and thine hereditary ever
  Remain this ample third of our fair kingdom,
    No less in space, validity, and pleasure
      Than that conferred on Goneril.--Now, our joy,
        Although our last and least; to whose young love
          The vines of France and milk of Burgundy
            Strive to be interest; what can you say to draw
              A third more opulent than your sisters? Speak.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (King Lear at I, i)

. . . As she in beauty, education, blood,
  Holds hand with any princess of the world.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (King John at II, i)

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 answered blows,
          Strength marched with strength, and power confronted power.
            Both are alike, and both alike we like.
              One must prove greatest. While they weigh so even,
                We hold our town for neither, yet for both.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Citizen at II, i)

Woman once made equal to man becomes his superior.
      - Socrates

It is a commonly observed fact that the enslavement of women is invariably associated with a low type of social life, and that, conversely, her elevation towards an equality with man uniformly accompanies progress.
      - Herbert Spencer

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal.
      - Elizabeth Cady Stanton,
        Declaration of Sentiments, First Women's Rights Convention, Seneca Falls, New York,
        July 19-20, 1848

The trickling rain doth fall
  Upon us one and all;
    The south-wind kisses
      The saucy milkmaid's cheek,
        The nun's, demure and meek,
          Nor any misses.
      - Edmund Clarence Stedman, A Madrigal
         (st. 3)

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 society.
      - Sir Richard Steele, Tatler (no. 225)

There are really not many jobs that actually require a penis or a vagina, and all other occupations should be open to everyone.
      - Gloria Steinem

Women are not going to be equal outside the home until men are equal in it.
      - Gloria Steinem

In the gates of eternity, the black band and the white hand hold each other with an equal clasp.
      - Harriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe

The woman's cause is man's. They rise or sink together; dwarfed or godlike, bond or free; if she be small, slight-natured, miserable, how shall men grow?
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson

As if the ray which travels from the sun would reach me sooner than the man who blacks my boots.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

Come forward, some great marshal, and organize equality in society, and your rod shall swallow up all the juggling old court gold-sticks.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

The tallest and the smallest among us are so alike diminutive and pitifully base, it is a meanness to calculate the difference.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

One of the things about equality is not just that you be treated equally to man, but that you treat yourself equally the way you treat a man.
      - Marlo Thomas

Equality is a slogan based on envy. It signifies in the heart of every republican: "Nobody is going to occupy a place higher than I."
      - Alexis de Tocqueville

The mind of the thinker and the student is driven to admit, though it be awe-struck by apparent injustice, that this inequality is the work of God. Make all men equal to-day, and God has so created them that they shall be all unequal to-morrow.
      - Anthony Trollope

It is untrue that equality is a law of nature. Nature has no equality; its sovereign law is subordination and dependence.
      - Luc de Clapier de Vauvanargues
