RANK
[ Also see Ancestry Aristocracy Birth Class Democracy Distinction Nobility Office Position Snobs Station Titles ]

Rank is a great beautifier.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Quality and title have such allurements that hundreds are ready to give up all their own importance, to cringe, to flatter, to look little, and to pall every pleasure in constraint, merely to be among the great, though without the least hopes of improving their understanding or sharing their generosity. They might be happier among their equals.
      - Oliver Goldsmith

Every error of the mind is the more conspicuous and culpable in proportion to the rank of the person who commits it.
      - Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenal)

The finest lives, in my opinion, are those who rank in the common model, and with the human race, but without miracle, without extravagance.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Rank and riches are chains of gold, but still chains.
      - Giovanni Ruffini

There are no persons more solicitous about the preservation of rank than those who have no rank at all. Observe the humors of a country christening, and you will find no court in Christendom so ceremonious as the quality of Brentford.
      - William Shenstone

To be vain of one's rank or place is to disclose that one is below it.
      - Leszczynski Stanislaus ("Stanislaus I")

If it were ever allowable to forget what is due to superiority of rank, it would be when the privileged themselves remember it.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)
