There are things I don’t like, like sitting at the head of the class. It makes me uncomfortable. I’ll do it in a seminar if I have to, but with a workshop, I try to put myself in the circle somewhere. Because that hopefully frees up some people by making somebody else sit at the nominal head of the table.
Paul Beatty

Glen Hansard
I eat everything, that’s a problem. I don’t have discipline. My favorite dish is the Caribbean. Meat, rice, lots of grains. But I do like to do exercises. Lately, I’ve been having capoeira classes and lots of cardiovascular exercises, such as jogging and cycling.

Jenson Button

Plato

Keir Hardie
My mom taught me how to sew when I was super young; I used to make clothes for my dolls. When I finally went to [fashion design] school [in 1999], I really took to pattern making. Everyone in class was good at something; I was the person, if you need help with your patterns, you come to me and I would help you out.
Serena Williams
In terms of media, we did not get the kind of media attention that somebody like a Donald Trump got, because media is not necessarily interested in the issues facing the middle class, more interested in attacks in personality. So I think there were a lot of reasons.

Anna Faris
The Miss America contest isthe most perfectly rendered theater in our culture, for it so perfectly captures what we yearn for: a low-class ritual, a polished restatement of vulgarity, that wants to open the door to high-class respectability by way of plain middle-class anxiety and ambition.
Gerald Early
The poor and the middle class work for money. The rich have money work for them.

LaDainian Tomlinson

Muhammad Ali Jinnah
I am a world-class weenie when it comes to letting people stick needles into me. My subconscious mind firmly believes that if God had wanted us to have direct access to our bloodstreams, He would have equipped our skin with small, clearly marked doors.
Dave Barry
Marriages are so complicated that no one person is the culprit. But, I am really interested in class without really realizing that I am. It’s more the manifestations of different classes that interest me.
Nicole Holofcener
Marriage and fatherhood heighten the disillusion that we all think we are born handy. We confidently believe that we can fix things around the house, as if it’s part of the collective brain that was further enhanced by eighth-grade shop class.
Bob Newhart
The class struggle is precisely that which resolves the contradictions between two opposed classes by abolishing them at the same time that it constitutes and reveals them as classes.
Monique Wittig
Political change and academic change and intellectual change are obviously crucial, but they don’t necessarily change society. They can change a particular class and give everybody in that class great arguments, but that doesn’t necessarily translate into the body of the culture.
Eve Ensler
I gained a first class degree in Physics at Imperial College London in 1968 and did research in solid state physics, but did not pursue meteorology matters until gaining an M.Sc. in astrophysics from Queen Mary College London in 1981, after which I investigated and attempted to construct theories of solar activity.

Julianne Hough
Food culture in the United States has long been cast as the property of a privileged class. It is nothing of the kind. Culture is the property of a species.

I never knew that the lower classes had such white skins.
George Curzon, 1st Marquess Curzon of Kedleston
I grew up in a show-business family, but we were working-class show business. There was nothing glamorous about it. You had great things one day and the next day, nothing.
Sally Field
Usually based on an economic agenda, white working-class voters don’t buy into this whole biology-chemistry-abortion-gender agenda as much as they want more take-home pay. They want affordability.

Joe Slovo

Zach Condon
I grew up in a working class family. People thought I might go work at a mill. My mom wanted me to learn how to lay carpet because she was concerned about my future. Nobody had high hopes for me. But I was a hustler.
Mark Cuban
I think the job of a good journalist, especially in Washington, is to create discomfort, and I think for a certain class of people, and for whom life is quite comfortable, I’ve created discomfort. So I take that as a badge of honor.
Mark Leibovich
Once I started taking drama classes, I asked myself why I had ever wasted so much time on a football team.
Paul Newman
It is only through an abandonment of the idea that those entrusted with power have an exclusive right to decide upon war, and the substitution of a public opinion equipped with all the facts and taken into the confidence of the ruling classes, that peace can be assured to the world.
Frederic C. Howe
Aerial flight is one of that class of problems with which man will never be able to cope.
Simon Newcomb

Rudy Giuliani
Celebrate my death for the good times I’ve had, For the work that I’ve done and the friends that I’ve made. Celebrate my death, of whom it could be said, “She was a working class woman, and a red.”
Malvina Reynolds
I took movement classes that I wore my double-breasted suits to. I worked on my elocution because people spoke differently then. I was really trying to toe the line. I think that if I had spoken exactly the way that people spoke back then, it probably would have alienated people.
Matt Bomer
You come out of a working-class environment, you know, working-class kids always put them themselves together because it’s one of the only things they had. You had control of your image.
Ian Astbury
In the party of Lincoln and Reagan and much of the donor class, the defense of human life is what they think loses elections. They think we need to spend time on really popular ideas, like cutting your mom’s Social Security check.
Gary Bauer
As much as I love to dance, and I still take class, aerobics and that sort of thing, and I still move very well and all of that – I’m really not a dancer anymore.
Kelly Bishop
Maybe I needed sensitivity training. I once signed up for an anger management class, but the instructor pissed me off.
Darynda Jones

Mary Calderone
We thought I was going to be a great athlete, and we were wrong, and I thought I was going to be a great entertainer, and that wasn’t it either. I’m going to be an American Citizen. First class.
Dick Gregory
I was the class clown in high school, but I always took it too far, so nobody liked me. I was annoying. Like, I would get a laugh and then keep going and keep going.
Pete Davidson

Ian McShane
I remember an article, I can’t recall who by, it was after the fall of the Berlin Wall, which said that now the Wall was down, there could be no more class war. Only someone with money could ever say such a thing.
Claude Chabrol
I don’t know why that is, but English politics is just so overly white. It’s very much about the class structure.
Daniel Radcliffe
England is strictly class-based. What’s surprising is how many films are still made with a load of people in silly frocks running around gardens and talking in middle-class accents.
Stephen Daldry
Bowie’s death is a very emotional thing. My generation of working-class Britain, it feels like we lost our spiritual leader, our guru. I always thought that if I was to be a hundred, somehow Bowie would be a hundred and fifteen. He’d be there to still steer me and guide me.
Irvine Welsh
I have a lot of sympathy with the ideas and frustration of the Occupy movement. I absolutely agree with the sense that Wall Street has brought an economic calamity to the middle class and that no one has been held accountable.
Susan Bysiewicz
Sun Microsystems had the right people to make Java into a first-class language, and I believe it was the Sun marketing people who rushed the thing out before it should have gotten out.
Alan Kay
Because you have no memory for things that happened ten or twenty years ago, you’re still mouthing the same nonsense as two thousand years ago. Worse, you cling with might and main to such absurdities as ‘race,’ ‘class,’ ‘nation,’ and the obligation to observe a religion and repress your love.
Wilhelm Reich
My writing is translated into every Indian language, it’s distributed in pamphlets, in little private video things, it’s everywhere. So it’s a lovely pastime for the middle class to think of itself as the whole nation.
Arundhati Roy
The unpreparedness of the educated classes, the lack of practical links between them and the mass of the people, their laziness, and, let it be said, their cowardice at the decisive moment of the struggle will give rise to tragic mishaps.
Frantz Fanon
There is a middle class in America for only one reason: organized labor. If not for organized labor, where would you find a job where you had some sense that you had a shot of leaving behind something better than you inherited?.
Joe Biden
The two most important things to do for self-defense are not to take a martial arts class or get a gun, but to think like the opposition and know where you’re most at risk.
Barry Eisler
When nature removes a great man, people explore the horizon for a successor; but none comes, and none will. His class is extinguished with him. In some other and quite different field, the next man will appear.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Why has the Democratic Party become so arrogantly detached from ordinary Americans? Though they claim to speak for the poor and dispossessed, Democrats have increasingly become the party of an upper-middle-class professional elite, top-heavy with journalists, academics and lawyers.
Camille Paglia
The aim of eugenics is to represent each class or sect by its best specimens; that done, to leave them to work out their common civilization in their own way.
Francis Galton
Smartness runs in my family. When I went to school I was so smart my teacher was in my class for five years.
Gracie Allen
My deal is have a flat, simple tax. And – Americans want – Americans I hope – aspire to be – be wealthy. I hope they aspire to have a better quality of life. And we have this class warfare that’s going on now. And I don’t agree with that. I’m interested in people getting to work.
Rick Perry
The next thing I wrote was in a writing class at night school. It was about a poor woman who worked at a dime store and who was all alone for Christmas in Laurel, Mississippi.
Beth Henley
I also have in mind that seemingly wealthy, but most terribly impoverished class of all, who have accumulated dross, but know not how to use it, or get rid of it, and thus have forged their own golden or silver fetters.
Henry David Thoreau
A philosophy which speaks, even indirectly, only to philosophers is no philosophy at all; and I think the same is true if it speaks only to scientists, or only to jurists, or priests, or any other special class.
Abraham Kaplan
These people—the employed, the somewhat privileged—are drawn into alliance with the elite. They become the guards of the system, buffers between the upper and lower classes. If they stop obeying, the system falls.
Howard Zinn
Those of us who write spend our entire lives in an endless English class.
Joss Whedon
President Trump ought to realize, he’s not campaigning anymore. He’s president. And instead of talking about how many people showed up at his inauguration, he ought to be talking about how many people are going to stay into the middle class and move into the middle class.
Charles Schumer
Growing up in a particular neighborhood, growing up in a working-class family, not having much money, all of those things fire you and can give you an edge, can give you an anger.

Jim Gaffigan
It is, after all, absurd that in 2017 women are still at best second-class citizens.
Catherine Mayer
I think satire is a luxury of literate middle-class people. People who are well fed and relatively secure in their beds can laugh at their troubles. They can enjoy sitcoms. For those who aren’t quite so lucky, well, the irony might be lost on them.
Harold Ramis
Everyone today is like, ‘Shailene, you’re getting so much buzz. How does the feel?’ It’s the most odd question because it’s like asking a kid who got into Cornell how it feels to be the top of your class at one of the Ivy League schools. How do you answer that? You just go, ‘I don’t know.
Shailene Woodley
Rich people buy luxuries last, while the poor and middle class tend to buy luxuries first.
Robert Kiyosaki
Writers need to learn their trade, and how to negotiate the increasingly difficult marketplace. The trade can be taught and learned just as the craft can. But a workshop where the trade is the principal focus of interest is not a writing workshop. It is a business class.
Ursula K. Le Guin
It’s not the appearance, it’s the essence. It’s not the money, it’s the education. It’s not the clothes, it’s the class.
Coco Chanel
There aren’t that many people walking about who are a total class stereotype.
Ezra Koenig
I grew up watching my mom in the kitchen, that’s how I know anything about cooking. I’ve always wanted to go to a culinary class actually.
Serena Williams
You have to be taught to be second class; you’re not born that way.
Lena Horne
People always have been the foolish victims of deception and self-deception in politics, and they always will be, until they have learned to seek out the interests of some class or other behind all moral, religious, political and social phrases, declarations and promises.
Vladimir Lenin
I never took acting classes, but I knew I could do it based on the skill with which I lied to my parents on a regular basis!
Ryan Reynolds
Our freedom must be had at all hazards. If the men of property will not help us they must fall; we will free ourselves by the aid of that large and respectable class of the community – the men of no property.
Wolfe Tone
I went to a middle-class school, but my background is working class. I got the best of both worlds, I saw both classes, so I have a pretty fair idea of how people live and why they do it.
David Bowie
Young people are not raw material to be employed by the political class on behalf of whatever fashionable political, military, or social cause catches its fancy. In a free society, their lives are not the playthings of government.
Ron Paul
“Stuffed and Unstrung” started as a workshop, actually, classes within our company. We found that our puppeteers were not ad libbing as well as traditionally, Jim Henson Company puppeteers have. We’re sort of famous for going off script a little bit and ad libbing.
Brian Henson
When I was 7 and went to the zoo with my second-grade class, I saw chimpanzee eyes for the first time – the eyes of an unhappy animal, all alone, locked in a bare, concrete-floored, iron-barred cage in one of the nastier, old-fashioned zoos. I remember looking at the chimp, then looking away.
Octavia E. Butler
She has been kissed as often as a police-court Bible, and by much the same class of people.
Robertson Davies
It is from the middle class that writers spring, because, it is in the middle class only that the practice of writing is as natural and habitual as hoeing a field or building a house.
Virginia Woolf
The [Vietnam War Memorial] Wall became a magnet for citizens of every generation, class, race, and relationship to the war perhaps because it is the only great public monument that allows the anesthetized holes in the heart to fill with a truly national grief.
Adrienne Rich
I’m self-made. I always wanted to make myself a better person, because I was not educated. But that was my dream – to have class.
Tina Turner
Cristiano Ronaldo is big and strong, but Messi’s technique is pure class.
Jesus Navas
I should like to begin with a philosophical comment. I do not think that when one is speaking of hardships or benefits one can reasonably speak in terms of classes or social groups but only in terms of individuals.
John James Cowperthwaite
There are simply no public figures today who so challenge the elite business and government establishment and so champion the working class as Jimmy Hoffa did almost daily and with arrogance.
Jimmy Hoffa
Any man who tries to excite class hatred, sectional hate, hate of creeds, any kind of hatred in our community, though he may affect to do it in the interest of the class he is addressing, is in the long run with absolute certainly that class’s own worst enemy.
Theodore Roosevelt
The class of those who have the ability to think their own thoughts is separated by an unbridgeable gulf from the class of those who cannot.
Ludwig von Mises
The working class owes all honor and respect to the first men who planted the standard of labor solidarity on the hostile frontier of unorganized industry.
Ralph Chaplin
There is a much higher probability that a first-class scholar should commit an error than that an author who usually writes nonsense should have one good idea.
Otto E. Neugebauer
All socio-political phenomena in the U.K. come laden with the baggage of a class-based theory or two attached to them. In the case of gay Tories, there is one particularly silly variant of the category, which asserts that gayness is bred in public schools and thus fits with Conservatism like hand in glove.
Evan Davis
I believe writers need to be chameleons, or like Meryl Streep, who can play all sorts of characters. A good writer should be able to cross gender lines and people of all social classes. So for me, writing from a male point of view would be a great challenge, that I would look forward to taking on.
Marisha Pessl
As far as luxury goes, about the only thing I do is… I go first class all the way. I live on the road, so when I’m out there, I’m getting the nice hotel suite, I’m getting the luxury car, I’m eating the good food, and I make sure I take care of myself on the road.
Trish Stratus
Alcohol decimated the working class and so many people.
Martin Scorsese
As for America, it is the ideal fruit of all your youthful hopes and reforms. Everybody is fairly decent, respectable, domestic, bourgeois, middle-class, and tiresome. There is absolutely nothing to revile except that it’s a bore.
Henry Adams
Acting classes, I guess, are good and I would like to maybe sometime take one. But I would feel like I was learning someone else’s technique. I like mine.
Frankie Muniz
History and the task of the future no longer signify the struggle of class against class or the conflict between one church dogma and another, but the settlement between blood and blood, race and race, Folk and Folk. And that means: the struggle of spiritual values against each other.
Alfred Rosenberg
My mission is to raise incomes for hard working middle class families. If you work hard and do your part you should be able to get ahead and stay ahead.
Bernie Sanders
I don’t know what the country’s coming to. Everyone trying to be better than their betters–mink coats and no manners. No wonder Germany’s arming.
Arthur Wimperis
Now Peter said by exceeding great and precious promises you become partakers of the divine class. All right, are we gods? We are a class of gods!
Kenneth Copeland
We have a lot of problems in this country. It’s going to put pressure on the budget and we’re going to have to make some hard decisions. But the decisions we make are to prioritize the middle class.
David B. Axelrod
Nature hath given not only to the highest, but also to the inferior, classes of the people of this nation, a boldness and confidence in speaking and answering, even in the presence of their princes and chieftains.
Gerald of Wales
No country can reach a high stage of civilization without a leisure class.
Gertrude Atherton
Honestly, I was a good kid but I figured out pretty early that I had a gift for making people laugh. I wanted to entertain and when that happens you tend to get yourself in trouble in class.
Eric Ladin
For my own part, I had rather suffer any inconvenience from having to work occasionally in chambers and kitchenthan witness the subservience in which the menial class is held in Europe.
Harriet Martineau
Hillary Clinton: putting big government spending financed by the Chinese ahead of good-paying jobs for middle-class Americans. Is she guilty or not guilty?
Chris Christie
Whether we write lyrics or craft legislation, sell homes or teach classes, design spaces or open franchises, prayer is a critical part of the creative process. Don’t just brainstorm; praystorm.
Mark Batterson
Coin matching and finger flashing were among the first formal games to arise in the history of gambling. The class of Morra games extends back to the pre-Christian era, although not until comparatively recent times have game-theoretic solutions been derived.
Richard Arnold Epstein
A state school class can only learn as fast as its thickest child. Your kid misses stuff, mine has to wait while yours catches up.
Katie Hopkins
When you are young in this world, you believe that the class of deductive truths about social matters is larger than it turns out to be. […] I have discovered, to my infinite regret, that most of the serious debates over the basic principles of any political order have an irreducible empirical content.
Richard Allen Epstein
I hid the homework, stayed in the bathroom for the longest time trying to cut class – I was a wreck as a kid.
Jordan Francis
If you ask any ordinary reader which of Dickens’s proletarian characters he can remember, the three he is almost certain to mention are Bill Sykes, Sam Weller and Mrs. Gamp. A burglar, a valet and a drunken midwife-not exactly a representative cross-section of the English working class.
George Orwell
Where would David Copperfield be if Dickens had gone to writing classes? Probably about seventy minor characters short, is where. (Did you know that Dickens is estimated to have invented thirteen thousand characters? Thirteen thousand! The population of a small town!)
Nick Hornby
When I ascended from the depths of the working class to the middle class, the higher I got, the more dishonesty I found.
Steven Berkoff
This is a new land – a land of pretension because it is new; because classes and systems have not had that time to grow here naturally. We have no aristocracy but of virtue and talent, which is the only true aristocracy, and is the old and true meaning of the term.
Thomas D’Arcy McGee
The number one job facing the middle class. And it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: Jobs. J-O-B-S.
Joe Biden
Even world class performers can benefit from walk breaks.
Jeff Galloway
Only on the third class tourist class passengers’ deck was it a sultry overcast morning, but then if you do things on the cheap you must expect these things.
Spike Milligan
I taught a lot of art history, especially Chinese, Japanese, and Indian. But the painting classes came back. The nudes came back. Not so much the still lifes. So now our department is the worst department, partly because it has the worst facilities.
Ad Reinhardt
The most successful classes are those where the teacher has a clear idea of what is expected from the students and the students know what the teacher expects from them.
Harry Wong
I started to do silk-screen in the early days of my painting training, due to a woman who taught art history at the institute, Kathleen Blackshear. She was interested in silk screen and taught a class that I took.
Warren MacKenzie
It’s easy to get next to music theory, especially between your peers and music classes and so forth. You just pay attention. I had a good ear, so I realized that printed music was just about reminding you what to play.
Quincy Jones
The only excuse for not coming to a class or a performance is death.
Stella Adler
I’ve gradually risen from lower-class background to lower-class foreground.
Marvin L. Cohen
The government is committed towards helping the poor and neo- middle class with the success mantra of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas. It is in line with government’s vision to create a skilled and digital India.
Narendra Modi
I grew up a middle class, colonized child of teachers, and librarians and people, women especially, who treasured education.
Lorraine Toussaint
To be a top-class athlete, you have to train hard, you have to eat right, you have to get enough rest. I feel the way golf is going nowadays, you have to treat yourself as an athlete.
Rory McIlroy
My plan of instruction is extremely simple and limited. They learn, on week-days, such coarse works as may fit them for servants. I allow of no writing for the poor. My object is not to make fanatics, but to train up the lower classes in habits of industry and piety.
Hannah More
We think of ourselves as virulently anti-establishment, particularly ‘anti-‘ the permanent political class.
Steve Bannon
There has been a change in heroes within the working-class community
David Riesman
I think it is conceded that I generally do pretty big things as a manager, am audacious in my outlays and risks, give much for little money, and make my shows worthy the support of the moral and refined classes.
P. T. Barnum
Beware of artists, they mix with all classes of society and are therefore most dangerous.
Queen Victoria
My classroom is set up to accommodate the different types of assignments students do. Sitting at a single desk the entire class time just doesnt work for this type of class.
Christine Taylor
I was a protege; by the age of 10, I was studying with ballet choreographer Anthony Tudor in a class of adults.
Judith Jamison
We will talk about the contrast between both parties’ nominees and our desire to continue to build on our success in helping people reach the middle class.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Our movement took a grip on cowardly Marxism and from it extracted the meaning of socialism. It also took from the cowardly middle-class parties their nationalism. Throwing both into the cauldron of our way of life there emerged, as clear as a crystal, the synthesis — German National Socialism.
Hermann Goring
Crime seems to change character when it crosses a bridge or a tunnel. In the city, crime is taken as emblematic of class and race. In the suburbs though, it’s intimate and psychological, a mystery resist to generalization, a mystery of the individual soul.
Barbara Ehrenreich
I originally wanted to be a pop star. I wanted to be Kylie Minogue. My dad thought that was a very silly ambition and introduced me to drama classes. Once I became fixated on that, there was no stopping me.
Ashley Madekwe
My parents were determined to move into the middle class.
Martin Lewis Perl
I think we need not only to eliminate the tollbooth to the middle class, I think we should knock down the tollbooth.
George W. Bush
Stephen had just come from a class discussion in which several students believed that the right cup of herbal tea would save them from pain and sorrow. Well acquainted with pain and sorrow, Stephen did not contribute to the discussion. He merely crossed these idiots off his list of possible friends.
Caroline B. Cooney
My love for pottery started completely by chance when a good friend of mine recommended I take a class. When I sat down at a pottery wheel, it was like love at first sight. It was so deeply meditative, and I felt connected right away.
Jeremiah Brent
I’m absolutely, utterly, and completely certain that God wouldn’t be homophobic. I’d much rather go to hell – I really would much rather go to hell – than go to a homophobic heaven.
Desmond Tutu
The fact of the matter is that the U.S. is run by an unusually class-conscious, dedicated business class that has a very violent labor history, much worse than in Europe.
Noam Chomsky
In my writing classes, I don’t outlaw any genre writing.
Leni Zumas
O America, how you’ve taken necessities from the masses to give luxuries to the classes.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Generalization is necessary to the advancement of knowledge; but particularly is indispensable to the creations of the imagination. In proportion as men know more and think more they look less at individuals and more at classes. They therefore make better theories and worse poems.
Thomas B. Macaulay
The class that I teach is called “The Life of a Photograph.” It takes up the question, of the billion photographs that were taken today, how many will have a life, and why? So the new reality has made the question more pertinent, not less pertinent.
Sam Abell
What I think is bugging this guy [Steven Lerner] is the belief that debt – forced debt upon middle-class people, students (i.e., student loans and so forth) – has made Wall Street bankers and financial people excessively, unfairly, out-of-proportionally rich.
Rush Limbaugh
Sometimes I think that idlers seem to be a special class for whom nothing can be planned, plead as one will with them – their only contribution to the human family is to warm a seat at the common table.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
For many, graduation marks the end of formal student life – the end of long spring breaks and of thinking that a 10 A.M. class is far too early.
Alexa Von Tobel
Every formed disposition of the soul realizes its full nature in relation to and dealing with that class of objects by which it is its nature to be corrupted or improved.
Aristotle
I really enjoy English and poetry and writing classes. You do get writer’s block when you’re writing music, and having inspiration from other great writers is great. You have to look for inspiration because sometimes music isn’t the only thing that you can look at.
Taylor Momsen
Indians love to travel with their families, and they bring along everything including the kitchen and cooking utensils. Third-class coaches are always filled to capacity with people literally hanging out of the windows.
Volkmar Wentzel
Madame Schmid belonged to that large class of persons who believe that a man who engages in any form of art is necessarily a loafer.
Molly Elliot Seawell
I got on the high school speech team and everyday I would get up in front of the class and just start talking.
Gabriel Iglesias
All contemporary religions and churches, all and every kind of religious organization, Marxism has always viewed as organs of bourgeois reaction, serving as a defense of exploitation and the doping of the working-classes.
Vladimir Lenin
If you look at total numbers in the working and middle class, men still on average make more than women.
Hanna Rosin
There’s a wider agenda that speaks to what the Democratic Party has historically stood for, which are economic rights for those who are struggling in the middle class, concern for the poor, for economic justice for those who are marginalized in our society.
Mike McCurry
In all sectors of society there should be roughly equal prospects of culture and achievement for everyone similarly motivated and endowed. The expectations of those with the same abilities and aspirations should not be affected by their social class.
John Rawls
The greatest development after age 21 was shown by Steinitz, who increased his rating by more than a full class interval. Steinitz was the deep student and fierce competitor to the end of his career.
Arpad Elo
An insular country, subject to fogs, and with a powerful middle class, requires grave statesmen.
Benjamin Disraeli
You can’t strengthen the ranks of your middle class, you can’t strengthen and grow the ranks of your businesses and family-owned businesses, unless you are fiscally responsible.
Martin O’Malley
A world-class playboy once told me that the key to mesmerising women is to listen to them and look deeply into their eyes.
George Hamilton
I divide the world into three Classes – The few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen, the overwhelming majority who have no notion of what happens.
Nicholas Murray Butler
I’m reluctant to use the word class so much.
Timothy West
I knew coming into this to fight that this was going to be a world class fight, but I knew he didn’t have the skills to beat me.
Adrien Broner
Well, certainly one of the ironies of the success of affirmative action is that the middle class within the black community no longer lives within ‘black community’ by and large.
Henry Louis Gates
You have to put all the criticism of this club down to jealousy. United have produced more players who have played for their country, more world-class players and more players who have won European Footballer of the Year than any other team in this country, so we must be doing something right.
Alex Ferguson
The notion of a healthy society, of capable people who are able to enjoy life, arose in the liberal, middle-class, leftist and non-religious segments of society. The euthanasia idea came from neither the radical right-wing nor the conservative corner. It was and remains part of the modern age and progressive thought.
Gotz Aly
There’s certain classes you have to take, certain things you have to do, certain money you must have. Then, if you listen to the counselors and social workers and everybody else talking at you, you would think that once you got out of high school and college, life would be beautiful. But it’s not.
Snoop Dogg
General improvements in health/decline in mortality do not affect all classes equally. As mortality rates fall, social inequalities commonly widen.
Michael Marmot
We are like a woman with a difficult pregnancy. We have to rebuild the social classes in Egypt, and we must change the way things were.
Naguib Mahfouz
I’m very involved in FIU. I’m class of ’96 and my wife is class of ’97. I’m a member of the foundation board. We talk about where the university is strategically and the evolution of programs for the near and distant future.
Danny Pino
One of the great privileges of having grown up in a middle-class literary English household, but having gone to school in the front lines in Southeast London, was that I became half-street-urchin and half-good-boy at home. I knew that dichotomy was possible.
Daniel Day-Lewis
I grew up on a mixed diet of mass and class, and I still read that way. I hate it when people apologize for what they read. Some bestsellers aren’t exactly literary. So what? They’re fun and rip-roaring, Who instituted the book police and why do we have to answer them? Grrrrr!
Jennifer Donnelly
I remember I was in music class, I was a senior in high school, and my music teacher was like, “You should be a stand-up comic, you could imitate anyone.
Heather McDonald
Science is an investigation,” Coach said, sanding his hands together. “Science requires us to transform into spies.” Put that way, science almost sounded fun. But I’d been in Coach’s class long enough not to get my hopes up.
Becca Fitzpatrick
Excellence means that you’re prospering spiritually, mentally, physically and in every area of life. What does it mean to prosper? It means to do well, to have over and above, to walk in a high level with God. It means to be in a high class with God, where you can think like God and live like Him.
Chris Oyakhilome
I think that Malcolm X was envisioning, even while he was in the Nation of Islam, a black nationalist progressive strategy toward uniting black people across ideological, class lines, denominational religious lines, Christians, as well as Muslims, to build a strong movement for justice and for empowerment.
Manning Marable
When people are educated, the distinction between classes disappears.
Confucius
It may be well to repeat here the saying that old men talk of what they have done, young men of what they are doing, and fools of what they expect to do. The Negro race has a rather large share of the last mentioned class.
Carter G. Woodson
There is no greater ladder into the middle class than education.
Martin O’Malley
My background is not typical hip-hop. I didn’t grow up in the projects. I grew up in a single family home in a middle-class suburb. That doesn’t mean I didn’t experience hardship, but to me it’s not about that, it’s about the future and where we are trying to take it.
Kid Cudi
I started classes and it wasn’t because I was like, ‘I want to be an actor!’ – I was really interested in the theory of what acting can be and what it’s about. It’s all about living in the moment and kind of being present, which is something that at that time in my life I really wanted to explore.
Caity Lotz
Morgan Freeman is so class. He’s so cool. He’s so scary.
Jim Carrey
I am fighting for those middle-class families who want us to deal with our debt and deficit, but they also want the investments that are critical to our country moving forward.
Patty Murray
I loved the gentlemanly way they treated each other. It was unlike anything I was used to. I started helping them strike the set and, at 11, began taking acting classes privately.
Jeffrey Tambor
The teacher should make a concerted effort never to lose his temper in the presence of the class. If a man, he may take refuge in profane soliloquies. If a woman, she may follow the example of one sweet-faced tranquil girl who went out in the yard and gnawed a post.
William Lyon Phelps
Contemplation is a luxury of the middle class, the very rich.
F. Sionil Jose
Honestly, I grew up in pretty modest circumstances. We were a middle-class family.
Larry Gagosian
I look forward to teaching the occasional class, ’cause I was a professor. And I had fun doing it.
Barack Obama
There’s no hall of fame for that working class hero, no statue carved out of stone. And his greatest reward is the love of a woman and his children.
Alan Jackson
I wake up and I do class straight away, so that gives me a free day to do things.
Sergei Polunin
To have a horror of the bourgeois is bourgeois.
Jules Renard
In my job I meet many outstanding, world class, British based companies. But we need more companies and more jobs in the companies we have.
Vince Cable
I grew up in Michigan, in a very small town, Centreville. In my graduating class I had like 92 people.
Verne Troyer
Al Gore’s performances could be a case study in abnormal-psychology classes.
Rich Lowry
I went to an all-girls’ Catholic school for, like, six years during the time when kids actually had handwriting class. I’ve always had a propensity for getting the cursive down pretty well.
Meghan Markle
I had no money to buy books, so between classes and work, I haunted the library. I even tutored in French with a sliding scale of payment: twenty dollars for an A, fifteen for a B, ten for a C, five for a D.
Hubert H. Humphrey
No state has hitherto existed (at least that we have any account of) … that no check whatever has existed to early marriages, among the lower classes, from a fear of not providing well for their families, or among the higher classes, from a fear of lowering their condition in life.
Thomas Malthus
Yeah, there are too many Jews in chess. They seem to have taken away the class of the game. They don’t seem to dress so nicely, you know. That’s what I don’t like.
Bobby Fischer
Yoga is really big – I’m actually a certified teacher, although I’ve never taught classes at a studio. I really find myself drawn to more traditional styles.
Stephanie Ellis
But you also are facing an uphill battle if you are trying to be the first teacher who asks students to think in class and they are already 16 years old.
Johnny Burnette
She is amazingly creative, bringing so much more to a song than just a singer. She is a first-class musician and the most gracious person in the world.
Ella Fitzgerald
Aline and I have travelled a very long, very hard road together, from our working class homes in rural Quebec to the palaces of London, Paris, Moscow, and Beijing. Politics was the route, public service the reward.
Jean Chretien
Some years ago an excellent professor of economics told his class in his gravelly voice, ‘If you pay me $50,000 a year to solve a problem, I damned sure ain’t going to solve it.’
Charley Reese
I was only a working-class boy from a Nationalist ghetto. But it is repression that creates the revolutionary spirit of freedom.
Bobby Sands
No teacher has ever failed from ignorance. That is empiric professional knowledge. Teachers fail because they cannot `handle the class.’ Real education must ultimately be limited to men how INSIST on knowing, the rest is mere sheep-herding.
Ezra Pound
The naive notion that a mother naturally acquires the complex skills of childrearing simply because she has given birth now seemsas absurd to me as enrolling in a nine-month class in composition and imagining that at the end of the course you are now prepared to begin writing War and Peace.
Mary Blakely
Money can’t buy happiness, but it will certainly get you a better class of memories.
Ronald Reagan
People were going to geometry class and I was swimming through vats of chili on ‘Even Stevens.’ It was like a dream!
Shia LaBeouf
Washington’s answer to a self-inflicted financial crisis reminded Americans why they so deeply distrust the political class. The ‘fiscal cliff’ process was secretive and sloppy, and the nation’s so-called leadership lacked the political courage to address our root problems: joblessness and debt.
Ron Fournier
We are from the very middle class family. We have not come from the English medium school. We came from our regional languages school.
Mamata Banerjee
The ruling class is the rich. . . . And those people are so able to manipulate our democracy that they really control the democracy.
Walter Cronkite
Enough if every age produce two or three critics of this esoteric class, with here and there a reader to understand them.
Thomas de Quincey
We have a myth of the classless society. You won’t hear an American politician apart from Bernie Sanders talk about the working class. We are all middle class, apparently.
Margo Jefferson
Free enterprise has done more to lift people out of poverty, to help build a strong middle class, to help educate our kids, and to make our lives better than all the programs of government combined.
Mitt Romney
Sad to hear Paul Scholes is retiring, great player, world class player, the English Zizou.
Samir Nasri
[I]t is truth alone-scientific, established, proved, and rational truth-which is capable of satisfying nowadays the awakened minds of all classes. We may still say perhaps, ‘faith governs the world,’-but the faith of the present is no longer in revelation or in the priest-it is in reason and in science.
Henri Frederic Amiel
What rights have women? … [they are] punished for breaking laws which they have no voice in making. All avenues to enterprise and honors are closed against them. If poor, they must drudge for a mere pittance if of the wealthy classes, they must be dressed dolls of fashion parlor puppets.
Ernestine Rose
In contrast to what the women have been told (that they are dumb and ugly) and how they have been controlled with confined strictures, the dance class is a safe place in which the women have choices and can improve their self-concept.
Judith Lynne Hanna
Morality for the upper classes, the gallows for the rabbles.
Napoleon Bonaparte
We are moving in exactly the wrong direction in higher education. Forty years ago, tuition in some of the great American public universities and colleges was virtually free. Today, the cost is unaffordable for many working class families. Higher education must be a right for all – not just wealthy families.
Bernie Sanders
I’m definitely working class, and I still believe in those values. I know that losing everything would not be an unfamiliar feeling. Meaning, if you don’t have it anymore, you didn’t have it to begin with.
John Travolta
Oh, I have this feud going with the L.A. Unified School District, because I keep getting these phone calls saying my daughter keeps missing classes, I mean, at all hours of the night, I had like, two calls this morning and I keep calling saying I haven’t got a daughter!
Chris Colfer
The interest of the landlord is always opposed to the interests of every other class in the community.
David Ricardo
It’s just about bein’ yourself…even when you’re on the dole, it’s about your leather jacket. Music is the last refuge of the working class, along with football…in fact, gigs and riots are the only things left.
Pete Doherty
I’m from a middle class family. I didn’t grow-up rich, but I didn’t grow-up poor. Each guy has to stick to his own story.
SonReal
I was the one of those students who made the top half of the class possible.
Michael Bloomberg
I have known nothing the last thirty years save the struggle for human rights on this continent. If it had been a class of men whowere disfranchised and denied their legal rights, I believe I should have devoted my life precisely as I have done in behalf of my own sex.
Susan B. Anthony
It would be impossible to learn the lessons the scriptures contain by reading them only one time through or studying selected verses in a class.
Julie B. Beck
Britain is no longer one of the world’s price setters. It is painful. It is a challenge to us in government to explain all that, and it is a pity that the political class is not preparing the public for it to understand how massive the problem is.
Vince Cable
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
But hey, what’s life without a little adversity?” That had to have been the fakest attempt at optimism since my fourth grade teacher tried reasoning that we were better off without the dead kids in our class because it’d mean more turns on the playground swings for the rest of us.
Alexandra Bracken
I’m lucky to have parents who used to be bodybuilders! They help me keep fit by going to the gym and training with me. I’m also addicted to Cardio Barre classes and hiking.
Janel Parrish
I had a happy, dramafree youth, growing up in an upper-middle-class neighborhood in Dallas, Texas. The only thing that was slightly unusual compared to most of my friends was that I was an only child… I don’t think that’s why my parents gave me a dummy, at least they’ve never copped to it.
Jeff Dunham
The frailty of everything revealed at last. Old and troubling issues resolved into nothingness and night. The last instance of a thing takes the class with it. Turns out the light and is gone. Look around you. Ever is a long time. But the boy knew what he knew. That ever is no time at all.
Cormac McCarthy
I survived on sandwiches, and I was on stage every night for six years of my life. I was working 16 hours a day between class, rehearsal, being on stage.
Thierry Mugler
I’ve got to be high class… Which is sad, because I like bars.
Daniel Craig
At a university they had the freshman class make the same predictions that some of the well-known psychics do every year, and they found the freshman class did better
Frederick Lenz
But it’s not just the ratty part of town. The upper class in San Francisco is that way. The Bohemian Grove, which I attend from time to time – it is the most faggy goddamned thing you could ever imagine, with that San Francisco crowd. I can’t shake hands with anybody from San Francisco.
Richard M. Nixon
I think that when a poem can move readers across generations and across its specific class or race then it becomes truly classic.
Rita Dove
Alimony is the curse of the writing class.
Norman Mailer
I often think about the class differences involved in “jobs” vs. “careers.”
Bill Walsh
If you get hungry mid-day, a banana is the best snack at your desk, after a workout, or in between classes. Fruit is a very good snack in general.
Marcus Samuelsson
There are only two kinds of class: First class and no class.
David O. Selznick
Once energy problems gain traction, there will be a large new class of economic losers, and consequently a lot of social turbulence.
James Howard Kunstler
People want to know and understand each other across lines of race, class, gender, sexuality, ability.
Jacqueline Woodson
It is up to us to organize the people. As for the reactionaries in China, it is up to us to organize the people to overthrow them. Everything reactionary is the same; if you do not hit it, it will not fall. This is also like sweeping the floor; as a rule, where the broom does not reach, the dust will not vanish of itself.
Mao Zedong
In any crass political calculation, drilling for oil will always win more votes than putting a price on carbon. But if I recall what I was taught in fifth-grade American government class, we elect presidents to do more than crass political calculations.
Jeff Goodell
I grew up with great coaching, and it had nothing to do with sports. I had great parents. I really got some great input from there. They were entrepreneurial, middle-class business people.
Jerry Jones
Simply, with a Republican Congress sitting shotgun, Mitt Romney will put the middle class on the roof and take us for a long, painful ride.
Patty Murray
We have to remind ourselves constantly that we are not saviours. We are simply a tiny sign, among thousands of others, that love is possible, that the world is not condemned to a struggle between oppressors and oppressed, that class and racial warfare is not inevitable.
Jean Vanier
Who is an aam aadmi? AAP believes that the middle class is part of the aam aadmi, anyone who is tired of this corrupt system is aam aadmi.
Arvind Kejriwal
I’m so happy that James Baraz’s AWAKENING JOY class is now available in book form.В  His class has been helpful to thousands of people.В  I plan to give it to all my clients who are struggling with creating a life of meaning and happiness.В  Joyfulness is our birthright.В  This book shows you how to reclaim it.
M. J. Ryan
The Latin American Left, the criollos, direct descendents of Spaniards, they don’t want to accept that they are the whites of Latin America. They don’t want to talk about race. The discussion for them is based on class struggle, rich against poor, but doesn’t offer the possibility of a dialogue about racial questions.
Bocafloja
I met a keen observer who gave me a tip: ‘If you run across a restaurant where you often see priests eating with priests, or sporting girls with sporting girls, you may be confident that it is good. Those are two classes of people who like to eat well and get their money’s worth.’
A. J. Liebling
I always honestly dreamed of coming to Second City in Chicago, although I’ve never even been there to see a show. But I did a ton of sketch comedy at the Second City in LA, which (at the time, in a different location) wasn’t really a theater, it was just a space where you took some classes.
Simon Helberg
The thing I gravitated to was being the class clown. It was very competitive.
John Leguizamo
Why not exploit, enslave, or exterminate a class that everybody is taught to regard as inferior?
Carter G. Woodson
When I was young, I liked to be acknowledged in class by little gestures such as a small red star for doing something good. Now that I’m older, I still want to be acknowledged for good work.
Chen Guangbiao
All the words in the English language are divided into nine great classes. These classes are called the Parts of Speech. They are Article, Noun, Adjective, Pronoun, Verb, Adverb, Preposition, Conjunction and Interjection.
Joseph Devlin
Race and class are rendered distinct analytically only to produce the realization that the analysis of the one cannot proceed without the other. A different dynamic it seems to me is at work in the critique of new sexuality studies.
Judith Butler
All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.
Benjamin Franklin
I remember being in college and taking a class on classical music and getting a big laugh when I said very sincerely that I was not really into trained voices. Some of the greatest singers can transcend their technical perfection and still sound great.
Ira Kaplan
You’ve got a chemistry class; I want a piece of your mind; You don’t know what you started when you mixed it up with mine.
Elvis Costello
In every society, manufacturing builds the lower middle class. If you give up manufacturing, you end up with haves and have-nots, and you get social polarization. The whole lower middle class sinks.
Vaclav Smil
My brother became so enamored with that film [West Side Story], that he started taking tap-dancing lessons, and I followed him and started tap dancing, and my mother and father started tap dancing – I was in a class with my family, tap dancing!
Marisa Tomei
There was an improv class in our high school, and we all ended up taking it and loving it. Then we just started our own thing.
Sal Vulcano
The contented and economically comfortable have a very discriminating view of government. Nobody is ever indignant about bailing out failed banks and failed savings and loans associations… But when taxes must be paid for the lower middle class and poor, the government assumes an aspect of wickedness.
John Kenneth Galbraith
In a regular class I don’t focus on the form, but I think that focus is helpful for brainstorming and coming up with ideas quickly, especially with autobiographical material.
Bonnie Jo Campbell
…the transition from capitalism to Socialism and the liberation of the working class from the yoke of capitalism cannot be effected by slow changes, by reforms, but only by a qualitative change of the capitalist system, by revolution. Hence, in order not to err in policy, one must be a revolutionary, not a reformist.
J. Stalin
As a freshman in college, I was having a lot of trouble adjusting. I took a meditation class to handle anxiety. It really helped. Then as a grad student at Harvard, I was awarded a pre-doctoral traveling fellowship to India, where my focus was on the ancient systems of psychology and meditation practices of Asia.
Daniel Goleman
Inside each of you is a rich person, a poor person & a middle class person. It is up to you to decide which person you become.
Robert Kiyosaki
One might well say that mankind is divisible into two great classes: hosts and guests.
Max Beerbohm
Capitalism will never fall on its own. It will have to be pushed. The accumulation of capital will never cease. It will have to be stopped. The capitalist class will never willingly surrender its power. It will have to be dispossessed.
David Harvey
A book, I was taught long ago in English class, is a living and breathing document that grows richer with each new reading.
Malcolm Gladwell
Women are still second-class citizens.
Joan Jett
Wilbur never forgot Charlotte. Although he loved her children and grandchildren dearly, none of the new spiders ever quite took her place in his heart. She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both.
E. B. White
To tax the community for the advantage of a class is not protection: it is plunder.
Benjamin Disraeli
They’ll remember you if you’re the best reader in class-or if you throw up at lunch.
Cynthia Lewis
Sex education classes are like in-home sales parties for abortions.
Phyllis Schlafly
This erosion of the middle class is happening all over the place. The opening of a wider gap between rich and poor is always accompanied by such a process.
Susan George
Like a lot of you, I grew up in a family on the ragged edges of the middle class. My daddy sold carpeting and ended up as a maintenance man. After he had a heart attack, my mom worked the phones at Sears so we could hang on to our house.
Elizabeth Warren
There are a lot of people walking around with long hair now and some trendy middle class kids in pretty clothes. But nothing changed except that we all dressed up a bit, leaving the same bastards running everything.
John Lennon
Albert Camus’s ‘La Peste’ – ‘The Plague’ – had an enormous impact on me when I read it in high school French class, and I chose my senior yearbook quote from it. In college, I wrote a philosophy class paper on Camus and Sartre, and again chose my yearbook quote from ‘La Peste.’
Drew Gilpin Faust
All prejudices, whether of race, sect or sex, class pride and caste distinctions are the belittling inheritance and badge of snobs and prigs.
Anna Julia Cooper
There’s no such thing as median income; there’s a curve, and it really matters what side of the curve you’re on. There’s no such thing as the middle class. It’s absolutely vanishing.
Marc Andreessen
Of course I haven’t seen it! I wouldn’t look at anything of Kim Kardashian’s. I have never seen that show. I just think the Kardashians are just so cheap! No class.
Brigid Berlin
American working men are principals in the three-member team of capital, management, labor. Never have they regarded themselves as a servile class that could attain freedom only through destruction of the industrial economy.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Ten years ago I said, you know, my goal is to be able to get food on the table. What I’m trying to say by that is trying to create a vibrant, capable and effective middle class. The quicker and stronger that we can be able to do this, the easier it is for political reform to move forward.
Abdallah II
I spent 34 months on the battleship Alabama, South Dakota-class. I was a gun captain. First we went to Russia for about 11 months with the British convoys. Then we were up in Norway and Scandinavia.
Bob Feller
I grew up on the Southside of Chicago. What people don’t realize is that my father was a multimillionaire who owned 12 hotels, motels, a steel mill, a radio station, a club, nursing home, and a law office. So I think it’s safe to say I’m a little above middle class and I’m a daddy’s girl.
LisaRaye McCoy-Misick
The massive upward distribution of wealth engineered by our political class over the last few decades has solidified the plutocratic control of the rule-making machinery in Washington and state capitals.
Bill Moyers
The yearning for study was always there. I loved to learn. I really enjoyed studying
history. Taking college classes was just something I wanted to do. It gave me such a
feeling of satisfaction.
Nola Ochs
I didnt write Snow White for any class, but I got bitten by the screenwriting bug and wrote a couple of scripts in my spare time instead of going to keg parties or something.
Evan Daugherty
I was sort of traumatized by girls in the third grade. Because there was a girl in my third grade class I had a crush on. I bought her a box of Valentine’s Day chocolate. And I put it in her cubby with a note that said something like, “I am deeply in love with you, Your Secret Admirer.” And I didn’t sign my name.
Steve Carell
There was a big thing in the Behan family of achieving and wanting to be something special. There was a big drive in the family, even though it was poor and working class, to do something important, to contribute something to Irish culture. He certainly achieved that in a spectacular way.
Adrian Dunbar
Boots and leather jackets were strewn on her bed, and what looked like a new knife set. She’d taken a class last winter and was dying to try them out legally on someone.
Kim Harrison
Coming from a working-class background, where my father did manual labor, was a good grounding; I was obsessed with getting a job or getting out of the house at 15.
Johnny Marr
There are two distinct classes of men – those who pay taxes and those who receive and live upon taxes.
Thomas Paine
All classes of society are trade unionists at heart, and differ chiefly in the boldness, ability, and secrecy with which they pursue their respective interests.
William Stanley Jevons
My family was mostly unemployed working class.
Noam Chomsky
A society becomes totalitarian when its structure becomes flagrantly artificial: that is, when its ruling class has lost its function but succeeds in clinging to power by force or fraud.
George Orwell
By junior high, I was a horrible student. But during my sophomore year of high school, I did have a fabulous English teacher, and I would go to school just for her class and then skip out afterwards. That’s actually when I started writing, although I didn’t think of it then as something I might someday do.
Andrea Barrett
More pernicious than the power of a dictator is that of a class; the most terrible – the tyranny of a majority.
Emma Goldman
I’ve opened up my school in California in a beautiful facility on Ventura Boulevard. I’m always in heaven when I’m doing my classes.
Tasha Smith
There is no class of people so hard to manage in a state, as those whose intentions are honest, but whose consciences are bewitched.
Napoleon Bonaparte
The world, we are told, was made especially for man – a presumption not supported by all the facts. A numerous class of men are painfully astonished whenever they find anything, living or dead, in all God’s universe, which they cannot eat or render in some way what they call useful to themselves.
John Muir
My students – all adults – bring a lot of writing skill to the first class, and they and I get better as the class progresses.
James Thayer
The reality is that the people that we represent are no longer going to be second-class citizens in their own country.
Martin McGuinness
If I had to choose between baseball’s Hall of Fame and first class citizenship for all of my people. I would say first-class citizenship.
Jackie Robinson
My family was blue collar, a middle-class kind of thing. My father was born in Detroit, Italian-American. My mother is English. She acted on the stage with Diana Dors. Her parents were French.
Lorraine Bracco
It takes a certain amount of guts to go to your class reunions.
Dick Cavett
Each simian had a much different body suit, so besides trying to define class across species, there was a definite attempt to dress each group in different styles.
Colleen Atwood
I’d started going to acting classes at 14, played ‘Medea’ at 15 and really wanted to be a classical actress.
Barbra Streisand
There’s no conscious plan here; my whole life in politics as a state legislator and in Congress has been about strengthening the middle class.
Peter Welch
People think there’s a rigid class system here, but dukes have been known to marry chorus girls. Some have even married Americans.
Prince Philip
Classes struggle, some classes triumph, others are eliminated. Such is history; such is the history of civilization for thousands of years.
Mao Zedong
I have been spending the better part of my professional life trying to create self-driving cars. At Google, I am working with a world-class team of engineers to turn science fiction into reality.
Sebastian Thrun
Just some days ago in an administrative order, [Donald Trump] overturned what the FHFA had done to reduce the premiums on people with FHA loans. And so if he’s going to help poor people, why would he take away about $500 from the average home buyer, middle-class people?
Michel Martin
Left-leaning policies – I’m 52 years old, I’ve been to Cuba, I’ve been to dysfunctional state oriented places – left-leaning policies fail the lower and middle classes.
Anthony Scaramucci
Class can ‘walk with kings and keep its virtue and talk with crowds and keep the common touch.’ Everyone is comfortable with the person who has class because that person is comfortable with himself.
Ann Landers
When I was a kid, my parents encouraged me to take many different classes. Piano was one that I really fell in love with.
Noel Fisher
It’s quite an interesting time, the ’20s, because the politics of England were changing quite a lot, and the class structure was starting to shift a little.
Julian Ovenden
Language follows its own path. It can bridge gulfs of class and geography in the most remarkable ways.
Robert McCrum
I’m a nice middle-class girl in real life, and I’m a mom and a grandma, and I usually play sweet characters.
Jacki Weaver
Success gives the character of honesty to some classes of wickedness.
Seneca the Younger
I’m one of the undeserving poor: that’s what I am. Think of what that means to a man. It means that he’s up agen middle class morality all the time…. What is middle class morality? Just an excuse for never giving me anything.
George Bernard Shaw
I was a weedy kid, not like one of those working-class men who can accommodate not being academically clever by physical strength and prowess.
Ken Livingstone
Some popular quotations smell of airless closets. They exhale the stale imagination of the intellectual lower middle class. “Suspension of disbelief” has become one of them. Dressed up as a scintillating double negation, it serves the pedestrian notion of art as illusion.
Rudolf Arnheim
Newspaper men, perhaps more than any other class, are rated by ability.
Franklin Knight Lane
There won’t ever be a mass-market record industry again, and that’s fine with me because that industry didn’t operate for the benefit of the musicians or the audience, the only classes of people I care about.
Steve Albini
I honestly don’t class myself as a songwriter. I’ve got ‘musician’ written on my passport. That’s even funnier.
Robert Smith
I always think I look better after a yoga class. It’s the same as a massage. We look so amazing after a massage because we’re relaxed.
Andie MacDowell
In any government bureaucracy, they are not working for you but for the mythical blob called the ‘public sector,’ which is really nothing but a stash of stolen cash divided among the robber class.
Llewellyn Rockwell
I could be a yoga instructor. I’m not certified, but I could do it. Once I did a class where the instructor didn’t show up, and I just went to the front and did it, and everyone followed. So I’ve done it before, and I love it.
Nina Dobrev
The cities drain the country of the best part of its population: the flower of the youth, of both sexes, goes into the towns, andthe country is cultivated by a so much inferior class. The land,–travel a whole day together,–looks poverty-stricken, and the buildings plain and poor.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I took a Groundlings class in my 20s, and I was terrible. They didn’t even pass me to the next level.
Rashida Jones
[Ed Lauter] was an actor’s actor. I love working with that class of actor. You know, they come in, they do it, no bullshit. There’s no artifice, there’s no fanciness, they’re just honest and tough and direct.
Rob Lowe
I do this work for the common people and part of that work is creating a general awareness of such problems as they exist because my work is beyond class, religion and creed.
Abdul Sattar Edhi
But ‘Hey Dude’ was shot in Arizona, and that took me to the West Coast. We did 65 episodes. It was not a show that a ton of people saw, so it was like doing acting classes and getting paid for it. At that point I had the acting bug. So I went to L.A. to give it a try and never left.
Christine Taylor
I don’t campaign for the end of the aristocracy or the upper classes; I don’t really want to destroy anything at all. I just want more plurality.
Caitlin Moran
Also consider that someday, when you’re dead and rotted, kids with their baby teeth will sit in their time-geography class and laugh about how stupid you were.
Chuck Palahniuk
The working class is revolutionary or it is nothing.
Karl Marx
If you can’t have a good time and smile and relate to people across race and class, then the success that you have ultimately is just sounding brass and tinkling symbol.
Cornel West
I’m from Chicago, so the Chicago working-class poets still mean a great deal to me.
Sandra Cisneros
No one can teach writing, but classes may stimulate the urge to write. If you are born a writer, you will inevitably and helplessly write. A born writer has self-knowledge. Read, read, read. And if you are a fiction writer, dont confine yourself to reading fiction. Every writer is first a wide reader.
Cynthia Ozick
The president of the branch in Atlanta was a pastor of a church, the Reverend Sam Williams, a wonderful guy. He was middle-class and fairly militant for the time and place.
Julian Bond
If change is to come, it must come from the working class. That’s why telling their story is important. That’s why knowing our history is important.
Ken Loach
The tendency of advanced capitalism has been to enlarge the middle class and not to wipe it out, as it once seemed likely to do.
George Orwell
A Status symbol is an instrument you clash when you want someone to know you are there.
William Sansom
I really wanted people to pay attention to me and like me. And the class clown thing, you know? There’s a weird desperation to the class clown when you really investigate it. Why are they trying to be the clown so much? They’re filling some kind of hole.
Jack Black
I still do believe in carrying yourself a certain way, and I do my best to be somewhat of a role model. I’m not a perfect person. I’m a human being. I’m not the Lord, but I do accept that responsibility, and that’s why I do try to carry myself with confidence, with poise, with grace, and with class.
LeToya Luckett
Through the craziness, yoga classes allow me a safe space to breathe and put energy into myself.
Sadie Calvano
Well, I have chlamydia. Thanks for this, Mom. Good class.
Liam Hemsworth
If the community wish to have the benefit of more knowledge and intelligence in the labouring classes, it must dispense it at the public charge.
Jean-Baptiste Say
I did get a degree in theater and took some voice-over classes.
Grey DeLisle
Remember, the early ’60s in London was something – which must have been like Berlin in the ’30s when the arts flourished. You didn’t have the differences in class, and so on.
Ken Adam
I majored in sociology and never took a single music-related course, much less any kind of class in public speaking – no confidence for it, none – yet I still had a passion for it that burned inside me.
Regis Philbin
In their effort to divorce language and experience, deconstructionist critics remind me of middle-class parents who do not allow their children to play in the street.
Charles Simic
I tried to interest my daughter in dancing, but she didn’t take to it. As a five-year-old, she got lost on the way to her first class. After that she didn’t go to dance class again.
Nita Ambani
I certainly would like to prevent, if I could legally, anybody having an abortion, a rich woman, a middle-class woman, or a poor woman. Unfortunately, the only vehicle available is the…Medicaid bill.
Henry Hyde
Many of the lower middle class are members of labor unions, churches, bowling clubs, fraternal, service, and nationality organizations. They are organizations and people that must be worked
with as one would work with any other part of our populations – with respect, understanding, and sympathy.
Saul Alinsky
Women of the working class, especially wage workers, should not have more than two children at most. The average working man can support no more and and the average working woman can take care of no more in decent fashion.
Margaret Sanger
Men like to become Christians without crossing racial, linguistic or class barriers
Donald McGavran
One of the things I get amused by is when my opponent talks about the middle class.
Scott Walker
Capitalism has always been a failure for the lower classes. It is now beginning to fail for the middle classes.
Howard Zinn
We all have to acknowledge the life and the path we were born into. And the things that define us, they’re often somewhat narrow: our class, our race, our gender, where we grew up, what geography we were exposed to. The curiosity and wonderment of, “What it’s like on your path?” – that’s when you go into high alert.
Debra Granik
I felt like the luckiest kid in the world. And I was. I was growing up middle-class in a time when growing up middle-class in America meant there would be jobs for my parents, good schools for me to prepare myself for a career, and, if I worked hard and played by the rules, a chance for me to do anything I wanted.
Al Franken
I want to get totally rid of class distinction. As someone put it one of the papers this morning: Marks and Spencer have triumphed over Karl Marx and Engels.
Margaret Thatcher
The most important word in the language of the working class is “solidarity.”
Harry Bridges
I’m Charlotte Davidson: private investigator, police consultant, all -around badass. Or I could’ve been a badass, had I stuck with those lessons in mixed martial arts. I was only in that class to learn how to kill people with paper.
Darynda Jones
When I got to college, I was intending to study film. But I found that my brain was feeling mushy, so I took a few math classes. I started doing really well at them, and solving equations was this, like, drug rush.
Danica McKellar
You who have read the history of nations, from Moses down to our last election, where have you ever seen one class looking after the interests of another?
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
The historian assesses that the investment of the wealthy classes in the Bank of England wedded them to the fate of the nation as a whole and to the maintenance of its stability.
Walter Russell Mead
We spend to pretend that we’re upper class. And when the dust clears – when bankruptcy hits or a family member bails us out of our stupidity – there’s nothing left over. Nothing for the kids’ college tuition, no investment to grow our wealth, no rainy-day fund if someone loses her job.
J. D. Vance
Poor people in America today (people who are officially in poverty) have a higher standard of living – in terms of medical standards, in terms of going to college, in terms of the way people live – than middle class people did thirty years ago.
Michael Medved
History is made and preserved by and for particular classes of people. A camera in some hands can preserve an alternate history.
David Wojnarowicz
Particularly with middle-class people, self-absorption is a struggle.
Benjamin Lewin
To be with Derek Jacobi and Stellan Skarsgard, it’s a master class in acting every day.
Richard Madden
Places that succeed in attracting and retaining creative class people prosper; those that fail don’t.
Richard Florida
Emotions are classes in the Earth school. Some classes are about fear, and some are about love. The Universe is your tutor, and your classroom is your life. The main course in the Earth school, Authentic Power, is the same for everyone, but different students need different courses in order to complete it.
Gary Zukav
I wanted to look at the upper-middle-class scene since the war, and in particular my generation’s part in it. We had spent our early years as privileged members of a privileged class. How were we faring in the Age of the Common Man? How ought we to be faring?
Simon Raven
They made it to the middle class, my dad working as a bartender and my mother as a cashier and a maid. I didn’t inherit any money from them. But I inherited something far better – the real opportunity to accomplish my dreams.
Marco Rubio
There are the saints of every day, the ‘hidden’ saints, a sort of ‘middle class of holiness’… to which we can all belong.
Pope Francis
That has to come to an end and end now. No citizen is a second-class citizen in the city of Chicago. If my children are treated one way, every child is treated the same way.
Chris Hayes
Bravely you jog along with the rope of class distinction drawing closer, close, tighter, tighter around you… I see it and know it, but I cannot help you… I am only an unnecessary, little, bush commoner, I am only a – woman.
Miles Franklin
Get off your sofa and pick your jawbones off the floor, that was a world-class save.
Ray Hudson
In my cranky old age, I actually prefer recording alone now, on ‘The Simpsons,’ for example, because I find that the director can just focus on what I’m doing and I can do a lot of variations. A lot of times, when I record with a group, I’ll stay after class for another hour or two.
Hank Azaria
If the members of a class do not understand — if those directly addressed fail to listen, or listening, fail to recognize a power in the voice — surely the fault lies with the speaker, who, having attempted to secure their attention and enlighten their understandings, has failed in the attempt.
George Henry Lewes
I feel lucky in that I don’t really have to go to college to study something job-specific. I just want to go to learn about what is interesting to me and learn about the classes that you don’t really get to take in high school because you have to take the basics.
Tavi Gevinson
It is also very important to observe, that menial servants are absolutely necessary to make the resources of the higher and middle classes of society efficient in the demand for material products.
Thomas Malthus
The people of Florida in 2002 voted and approved class size limits in Florida to make sure that the State pays for smaller class sizes and not local districts.
Kendrick Meek
Class is real. It can’t be faked.
Ann Landers
Moral excellence has no regard to classes and professions.
Harriet Martineau
The middle class, in any society, plays the role of graphite rods in nuclear reactors: they slow down the reaction and, if it weren’t for them, the reactor would explode. A society without a middle class is a society primed for explosion.
Ahmed Toufiq
I used to do stuff at college. I could do voices. I could make some people laugh. I wasn’t the class clown, but I knew I had this skill.
Steve Coogan
If there ever was a poet for the working class Billy Joe Shaver and Merle Haggard would be my nomination
David Allan Coe
There is nothing to which men cling more tenaciously than the privileges of class.
Leonard Woolf
In the school of discipleship, suffering for Christ is never an elective course, but a required core class.
Steven J Lawson
On the subject of the feminist business, I just never think…of qualities which are specifically feminine or masculine. I suppose I divide people into two classes: the Irksome and the Non-Irksome without regard to sex. Yes and there are the Medium Irksome and the Rare Irksome.
Flannery O’Connor
The neoliberal programs of the last generation have in fact been, and were intended to be, a pretty serious attack on democracy, but also they’ve led to stagnation or decline for large parts of the population – the working class, the lower middle class, these people have essentially been cast aside.
Noam Chomsky
Controlling women as the means of reproduction is made even more necessary by any race or caste or class system. It just comes together, it’s just like life. And therefore it’s not even practical to be a feminist without being anti-racist or against classism. It just doesn’t work.
Gloria Steinem
Destructors for virtual base classes are executed in the reverse order of their appearance in a depth-first left-to-right traversal of the directed acyclic graph of base classes.
Bjarne Stroustrup
In those days [the 1790s],the students paid their professors directly for the lectures-typically about three guineas a class (a guinea was worth slightly more than a pound).
Joshua Kendall
Let’s face it, I only practice yoga because the classes are always packed with beautiful women.
Adam Levine
Conservatism, being an upper-class characteristic, is decorous; and conversely, innovation, being a lower-class phenomenon, is vulgar. …Innovation is bad form.
Thorstein Veblen
We want to begin in working-class neighborhoods. We want to test the concept there, because our idea is that fair trade should not just be for the elites, but for everyone, for the majority, for the poor people. Quality food for poor people. Why just quality for the rich? And at an equal price
Victor Suarez Melendez
The mark of a Scot of all classes [is that] he … remembers and cherishes the memory of his forebears, good or bad; and there burns alive in him a sense of identity with the dead even to the twentieth generation.
Robert Louis Stevenson
The awards world can be ridiculous, but I’m not one to bash it. I love awards! When I’ve been nominated for Emmys and when I won my DGA Award, I couldn’t have been happier. I always liked getting a gold star in class.
Paul Feig
On the other hand, I think it is wonderful for everyone to take ballet classes, at any age. It gives you a discipline, it gives you a place to go. It gives you some control in your life.
Suzanne Farrell
Alan Moore does have a sheen of class. He’s a smart guy, and I’m sure there was a metaphoric level, I’m not denying that, but let’s face it. the main reason he was doing a super-hero comic was because he was working for a super-hero comic book company.
Chester Brown
When I was in acting class, we did a lot of really serious scenes, and we didn’t do comedic scenes. I felt like doing those scenes, it didn’t come out of my mouth the right way. I don’t know if it’s because my voice is different, or what it is about me, but it just seemed a little off.
Leslie Mann
Primroses and landscapes, he pointed out, have one grave defect: they are gratuitous. A love of nature keeps no factories busy. It was decided to abolish the love of nature, at any rate among the lower classes. . . . it was essential that they should keep on going to the country, even though they hated it.
Aldous Huxley
When I was nine years old, I wrote a short story called ‘How to Build a Snowman,’ from which no practical snowperson-crafting techniques could be gleaned. The story was an assignment for class and it featured a series of careful but meaningless instructions. Of course, the building of the snowman was a red herring.
Sloane Crosley
Democrats single out glaring examples of tax preferences or spending priorities that favor the wealthy and Republicans cry ‘class warfare!’
Dee Dee Myers
They’re coming out of high school exhausted. The pressure in high school is killing these kids. By the time they get to college, they have been fighting for three or four years to get the perfect SAT scores and get into A.P. classes.
Debora Spar
By laying the groundwork for a system centered on home ownership rather than the public housing popular in Europe, the New Deal made possible the great postwar housing boom that populated the Sun Belt and boosted millions of Americans into the middle class, where, ironically, they often became Republicans.
Jonathan Alter
Society is undergoing a silent revolution, which must be submitted to, and which takes no more notice of the human existences it breaks down than an earthquake regards the houses it subverts. The classes and the races, too weak to master the new conditions of life, must give way.
Karl Marx
Men and women range themselves into three classes or orders of intelligence; you can tell the lowest class by their habit of always talking about persons; the next by the fact that their habit is always to converse about things; the highest by their preference for the discussion of ideas.
Henry Thomas Buckle
The burnt odor in Washington is from the disintegrating authority of the governing classes.
William Greider
I strongly support tax relief for the middle class.
Rick Larsen
I am proud up to the point of equality; everything above or below that appears to me arrant impertinence or abject meanness.
William Hazlitt
Youth has become a class.
Roger Vadim
Art class was my safe haven.
Amy Sherald
We tend to admire the people in our society who have accumulated such wealth as to seem somehow great. But we shouldn’t forget that it was the everyday working class man who made this country great.
Armstrong Williams
Sexism, like racism, goes with us into the next century. I see class warfare as overshadowing both.
Constance Baker Motley
In essence, the education department argues that the quality of the education children receive is irrelevant, as long as someone stands in front of the class.
Helen Zille
Build an “inclusive narrative” that goes beyond race, class, religion, etc., so that all may participate in the “the great debates”.
Neil Postman
The scab is a traitor to his God, his mother, and his class.
Jack London
I don’t feel like my life is that of a superstar! Every day I wake up, I take the train, I go to my ballet class. My everyday life is pretty normal.
Misty Copeland
A market where chief executive officers make 262 times that of the average worker and 821 times that of the minimum-wage worker is not a market that is working well. And it is surely not working well enough to build a solid middle class.
Marcy Kaptur
Judges, as a class, display, in the matter of arranging alimony, that reckless generosity which is found only in men who are giving away someone else’s cash.
P. G. Wodehouse
I was this kid who never sat down. Nobody liked me? Well, I’d make sure they’d like me. I was the class clown, always doing crazy stuff and causing riots.
Bas Rutten
All the kids in the cast tell me they hated high school, but I had the best time. I guess I was one of the popular kids. I played soccer, I was class president—I even dated the homecoming queen.
Matthew Morrison
Inequality hardens society into a class system. Inequality divides us from one another… Inequality undermines democracy.
George Packer
It is no longer clear which way is up even if one wants to rise.
David Riesman
It’s always amusing to see how much less the political class knows than the rest of us do. … it’s never occurred to [the likes of Senators Brownback and Obama] that they bear a worse stigma than any AIDS patient, being almost universally regarded as blowhards, crooks, dopes, and fools.
Stephen D. Cox
I was the class clown when I was a little young mustache.
E-40
I have even taught classes on writing about sex, and I’ve looked closely at different writers’ sex scenes. On the level of craft I’ve given it a lot of thought. The pitfalls are simple: It can sound clinical or medical, which isn’t right, or pornographic, because the characters disappear.
K. M. Soehnlein
You know the awkward class photo when you’re sitting there for your school picture and you’re 14 or something and you’ve got braces, and you don’t know how to smile, and you’ve got a hard-on.
Rob Huebel
I took a drama class in elementary school, and I just remember having so much fun with it. From there, I just studied, got better as I went along, and continued to grow.
Sinqua Walls
I was in the Boy Scouts for about four years until my troop disbanded. It is really one of the best activities youths can get involved in and nearly every scout I have known has been a class act due to the discipline the Scouts have instilled in them.
Ted Stevens
I believe the middle class game is dead.
Cliff Bleszinski
You cannot trust the interests of any class entirely to another class; and you cannot trust the interests of any sex to another sex.
David Lloyd George
I believe we really became friends [with Larry Kramer] when we bonded at our fifteenth class reunion in 1972.
Kevin Sessums
Your most memorable students are in your first classes and your last classes: make your last years the finest of your career.
Andy Hargreaves
Nothing could be more insulting to me than the concept of civil rights. It means perpetual second-class citizenship for me and my kind.
James Meredith
Ralph also took some classes in philosophy and literature and felt himself on the brink of some kind of huge discovery about himself. But it never came.
Raymond Carver
England is so defined, the class system, your education. I think what was unique about the Canterbury scene.
Kevin Ayers
Las Vegas is perhaps the most color-blind, class-free place in America. As long as your cash or credit line holds out, no one gives a damn about your race, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, address, family lineage, voter registration or even your criminal arrest record. Money is the great leveler.
Marc Cooper
Middle class America is acutely aware of how bad this economy is, and it is going to demand changes. I don’t think politicians can afford to be complacent.
Elizabeth Warren
Why certain political classes want purposefully to keep Americans in a state of perpetual debt and uncertainty and why certain people don’t want a middle class – because middle class creates a certain happiness. You know what I mean?
John Hodgman
Even when uttered by Democrats, “middle class” often sounds like a mealymouthed way of saying, “Us, and not them,” where “them” includes poor people, snake handlers and those with pierced tongues.
Barbara Ehrenreich
War is rich old men protecting their property by sending middle class and lower class young men off to die. It always has been.
George Carlin
Football makes nonsense of class. It may make nonsense of colour in some circumstances.
Peter Temple
The philosophic aim of education must be to get each one out of his isolated class and into the one humanity.
Paul Goodman
Millions of people are falling out of the middle class into the ranks of the poor.
Simon Mainwaring
Teaching creationism in science class as an alternative to evolution is inappropriate.
Bill Nye
The institution of a leisure class has emerged gradually during the transition from primitive savagery to barbarism; or more precisely, during the transition from a peaceable to a consistently warlike habit of life.
Thorstein Veblen
The economic owning class is always the political ruling class.
Eugene V. Debs
Political and social justice requires, not the disintegration of a country and destruction or humiliation of a class which shows initiative, intelligence and drive, but equality of opportunity for all, genuine freedom for self-fulfilment, in which all men irrespective of caste or creed may share.
Syama Prasad Mukherjee
Show class, have pride, and display character. If you do, winning takes care of itself.
Bear Bryant
By… [selecting] the youths of genius from among the classes of the poor, we hope to avail the State of those talents which nature has sown as liberally among the poor as the rich, but which perish without use if not sought for and cultivated.
Thomas Jefferson
[Virginia Madsen] big part in that movie [‘Class’] required her shirt to get ripped off, and looking back, it couldn’t be a more egregious, vintage, lowbrow, 1980s Porky’s-esque, shoehorned-in moment. Like, you would never have that moment in a movie that aspired to be what that movie did today.
Rob Lowe
Let him who expects one class of society to prosper in the highest degree, while the other is in distress, try whether one side; of the face can smile while the other is pinched.
Thomas Fuller
We all know the old expression, “I’ll work my thoughts out on paper.” There’s something about the pen that focuses the brain in a way that nothing else does. That is why we must have more writing in the schools, more writing in all subjects, not just in English classes.
David McCullough
I need to do psychology classes. That would be so interesting to me, studying people.
Britney Spears
To most middle-class feminists, as to most middle-class non-feminists, working-class women remain mysterious creatures to be “reached out to” in some abstract way. No connection. No solidarity.
Irena Klepfisz
Also, this is what a pregnant Busy Philipps does in her free time, I’m taking master fondant cake decorating class with Anna from ‘Ace of Cakes’ at Duff’s Charm City Cakes. It’s, like, 4 three-hour classes.
Busy Philipps
We don’t have a lot of class-conscious filmmaking.
Roger Ebert
Women are suffering because they are being excluded. The high military council excluded women from the committee to change the constitution [of Egypt]. We cannot be liberated as women in a society built on class oppression or gender oppression or religious oppression.
Nawal El Saadawi
Over no nation does the press hold a more absolute control than over the people of America, for the universal education of the poorest classes makes every individual a reader.
Washington Irving
There are two distinct classes of what are called thoughts: those that we produce in ourselves by reflection and the act of thinking and those that bolt into the mind of their own accord.
Thomas Paine
[Steven] Lerner said that unions and community organizations are, for all intents and purposes, dead. The only way to achieve their goals, therefore – the redistribution of wealth and the return of ‘$17 trillion’ stolen from the middle class by Wall Street – is to ‘destabilize the country.
Rush Limbaugh
What I loved about the acting class was that you got to think all day long about a person that wasn’t you, and figure out why they were sad and what they wanted, what they dreamed.
Beth Henley
Husbands are an inferior class of men, who require keeping in order.
George Eliot
My wife thinks I have an obsession with social class. So I guess I have an obsession with social class. It probably stems from feeling like an outcast.
James Gray
The vast majority of Americans want a government that creates the conditions for them to have a chance to get into the middle class, the kind of growth and the kind of educational opportunities. Most people would – the vast majority of Americans would much rather have a job that pays more than a welfare check.
Marco Rubio
The late development of mass industrial organization in the United States has both stimulated and retarded the political development of the American working class.
C. L. R. James
The revolution has its own laws: in the period of its culmination it pushes the most highly developed, determined and far-seeing stratum of the revolutionary class to the most advanced positions.
Leon Trotsky
No nation has produced anything like his equal. There is no quality in the human mind, there is no class of topics, there is no region of thought, in which he has not soared or descended, and none in which he has not said the commanding word.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Liberals force lower middle-class families, who love their children, to dispatch them to ghetto schools dominated by gangs of fatherless boys bearing knives.
George Gilder
In our nation there are two classes of nobility: the law-abiding workers and the law-abiding employers who sustain each other.
Cullen Hightower
What would happen if capital succeeded in smashing the Republic of Soviets? There would set in an era of the blackest reaction in all the capitalist and colonial countries, the working class and the oppressed peoples would be seized by the throat, the positions of international communism would be lost.
Joseph Stalin
Because of poverty, we must adopt the capitalist means of production to develop our resources to get rich. However, if we ignore the issue of social justice at the beginning of China’s industrialization, we will sow the seeds of class warfare in the future.
Sun Yat-sen
I grew up upper-class. Private school, my dad had a Jaguar. We’re African-American and we work together as a family, so people assume we’re like the Jacksons. But I didn’t have parents using me to get out of a bad situation.
Beyonce Knowles
Our parents and grandparents understood this truth deeply. They believed – as we do – that to create jobs, a modern economy requires modern investments: educating, innovating and rebuilding for our children’s future. Building an economy to last, from the middle class up, not from the billionaires down.
Martin O’Malley
Whatever I do, I hope it’s quality, I hope it’s something that’s class.
Garth Brooks
Like all my family and class, I considered it a sign of weakness to show affection; to have been caught kissing my mother would have been a disgrace, and to have shown affection for my father would have been a disaster.
Agnes Smedley
When I was right out of college, I felt competitive with some of the guys in my class over career stuff.
Aaron Staton
On a normal day, I crawl out of bed before 8 A.M., have a protein shake, chuck my gym kit on, and go for a class or personal-training session. When I’m back, I’ll have poached eggs with salmon or spinach for breakfast before my stylists arrive to do my hair – which takes ages. I then go wherever I am needed.
Ella Eyre
Millionaires are just as patriotic as poor people. The very wealthy are just as noble and patriotic as the middle class. But nothing has been asked of them in this horrendous recession. And it’s time we just ask.
Joe Biden
I grew up in the middle class.
Anthony Scaramucci
In ninth grade, I came up with a new form of rebellion. I hadn’t been getting good grades, but I decided to get all A’s without taking a book home. I didn’t go to math class, because I knew enough and had read ahead, and I placed within the top 10 people in the nation on an aptitude exam.
Bill Gates
Kevin Kline gives a master class in acting. He finds every nuance of mirth and melancholy in this wonder of a role and rides it to glory. You can’t take your eyes off him.
Peter Travers
Melancholy has ceased to be an individual phenomenon, an exception. It has become the class privilege of the wage earner, a mass state of mind that finds its cause wherever life is governed by production quotas.
Gunter Grass
It is impossible for us, with our limited means, to attempt to educate the body of the people. We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern.
Thomas B. Macaulay
Since the inception of Gym Class in 1997, every member has had another musical outlet, if not three or four.
Travie McCoy
The ignorant classes are the dangerous classes.
Henry Ward Beecher
The real danger of democracy is, that the classes which have the power under it will assume all the rights and reject all the duties-that is, that they will use the political power to plunder those-who-have.
William Graham Sumner
We need more math classes, we need more science. It’s the art of math and the art of science that creates all the innovation, and we have a tradition of great arts, great music.
Wynton Marsalis
We have among us a class of mammon worshippers, whose one test of conservatism, or radicalism, is the attitude one takes with respect to accumulated wealth. Whatever tends to preserve the wealth of the wealthy is called conservatism, and whatever favors anything else, no matter what, they call socialism.
Richard T. Ely
The future and the hope for the middle class church lies in the renewal of its lifeblood, which is only possible if the church succeeds in winning the working class.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
I can hire one half of the working class to kill the other half.
Jay Gould
Sportspersons at the grassroots must get world class exposure in terms of coaches, facilities, physical trainers and mental trainers so that a strong foundation is laid at the base. That’s the key to success.
Abhinav Bindra
What’s beautiful about the actual acting class environment is that you can use it to push through everything: push your voice, push your inhibitions, push your fears, push your confidence, push your vulnerability, push your silences.
Dawn Olivieri
The desperately poor may accept handouts, because they feel they have to. For those who consider themselves at least middle class, however, anything that smacks of a handout is not desired. Instead, they want their economic power back.
Robert J. Shiller
sometimes it’s better to bunk a class & enjoy with friends, coz today when I look back, marks never make me laugh memories do.
Abdul Kalam
My parents sent me to a dance class, so it was a road chosen by them, not me. But I enjoyed it so much I knew I would become a performer.
Zhang Ziyi
Holyfield is nothing but class, and I think he’s a breath of fresh air for the sport.
Sugar Ray Leonard
I enjoy a glass of wine, and I love my football. I suppose it’s because I’m a real working-class.
Rod Stewart
Therefore, no matter how the world makes out in the next few centuries, a large class of readers at least will not be too surprised at anything. They will have been through it all before in fictional form, and will not be too paralyzed with astonishment to try to cope with contingencies as they arise.
L. Sprague de Camp
I became a soldier, not because I had a military vocation initially, but because it was the only way that that young, poor-class child from the provinces could go to the center of the country: through baseball, which was my dream.
Hugo Chavez
The lower classes of men, though they do not think it worthwhile to record what they perceive, nevertheless perceive everything that is worth noting; the difference between them and a man of learning often consists in nothing more than the latter’s facility for expression.
Georg C. Lichtenberg
Pedagogues: More than any other class of blind leaders of the blind they are responsible for the degrading standardization which now afflicts the American people.
H. L. Mencken
World class is a phrase used by provincial cities and second-rate entertainment events, as well as a wide variety of insecure individuals, to assert that they are not provincial or second-rate, thereby confirming that they are.
John Ralston Saul
Everyone has class, one class or another.
Francesca Annis
Inequality has the natural and necessary effect, under the present circumstances, of materializing our upper class, vulgarizing our middle class, and brutalizing our lower class.
Matthew Arnold
Are we interested in treating the symptoms of poverty and economic stagnation through income redistribution and class warfare, or do we want to go at the root causes of poverty and economic stagnation by promoting pro-growth policies that promote prosperity?
Paul Ryan
There are two classes of human beings in this world: one class seem made to give love, and the other to take it.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Sanaz Minaei [business woman] shows a visitor a cooking class at one of her several companies and says the opportunities for Iran are huge if only the country can rejoin the global economy as promised.
Lourdes Garcia-Navarro
I actually was class clown, but I don’t know how that happened because I’ve never been considered an outwardly funny person-as the people in this room will attest.
Janeane Garofalo
That’s the curse of the reading class. We can be seduced by a good story even at the most inopportune moments.
Stephen King
We did phenomenally well with young people. I think we did well with working class people.
Bernie Sanders
I think diamonds represent luxury, indulgence, and class. So any time you can incorporate a gift that is synonymous with all those attributes, you know the other person will love it. I would challenge someone to find something that better represents Valentine’s Day more than diamonds!
Chris Evans
In the middle years of the nineteenth century there first became abundant in this strange world of ours a class of men, men tending for the most part to become elderly, who are called, and who are very properly called, but who dislike extremely to be called–“Scientists.
H. G. Wells
Whatever education I got was from experience and reading. But I also realize I wouldn’t pass my friend’s sixth-grade class.
Michelle Williams
The ability to draw from life determines the artist’s skill. This is why live drawing classes have always been at the top of the curriculum for properly structured academic workshops.
Igor Babailov
Both companies have product ranges with world-class brands that complement each other perfectly. Our companies share a common culture and mission. By realizing synergies and with our combined financial and strategic strengths, we will be ideally positioned in tomorrow’s marketplace.
Robert J. Eaton
Whenever you’re coming out in the same draft class with anybody, you’re going to be compared to them, but I’m not super worried about that.
Joe Burrow
A man’s name, title, and rank are artificial and impermanent; they do nothing to reveal what he really is, even to himself.
Jean Giraudoux
For a large class of cases – though not for all – in which we employ the word meaning it can be explained thus: the meaning of a word is its use in the language.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
I remember so many times taking classes and feeling completely discouraged because I felt like I wasn’t getting it and I couldn’t understand. I kept working at it and I kept going back to class, and I wouldn’t let myself get intimidated or get scared away, and it really does pay off.
Meaghan Rath
Bollywood has always pampered heroes and treated actors as second class citizens. But, of late, it has realised that there has to be space for actors who can connect with people.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui
There is plenty of ambitious competition and hypocrisy in the middle class, which makes it a rather fertile environment for a writer.
J. K. Rowling
I have been lucky to meet some incredible people who do not possess what you would traditionally class as power, but through their charisma, passion, and strength of character, they are able to achieve things that ‘richer or more powerful people’ could only dream of.
Holly Branson
The skills of the modern artist are the opposite of those of the craftsman: instead of acquiring techniques for producing classes of objects, the artist today perfects the means suited to his particular work.
Harold Rosenberg
Every age has its own poetry; in every age the circumstances of history choose a nation, a race, a class to take up the torch by creating situations that can be expressed or transcended only through poetry.
Jean-Paul Sartre
A social democratic party without deep roots in the working class movement would quickly fade into an unrepresentative intellectual sect.
Roy Jenkins
When you go to work, if your name is on the building, you’re rich. If your name is on your desk, you’re middle class. And if your name is on your shirt, you’re poor.
Rich Hall
We have to get away from the class warfare and recognize that we are growing jobs by helping small business.
Norm Coleman
Until now, until I actually got into law class, I just never thought of it as being an interest for me, but it’s really funny because now that I’m in law, I’m like ‘Wow, I could be a lawyer
Lisa Leslie
I was like I was in science class: I was curious.
Alice Sebold
There are two classes [of scientists], those who want to know, and do not care whether others think they know or not, and those who do not much care about knowing, but care very greatly about being reputed as knowing.
Samuel Butler
I was frustrated because I couldn’t get going, as I was trying to figure out how to make films. I had various jobs, I taught a SAT class, I was a bartender, I had a day job at an office and was making short films.
David O. Russell
The race question is subsidiary to the class question in politics, and to think of imperialism in terms of race is disastrous. But to neglect the racial factor as merely incidental is an error only less grave than to make it fundamental.
C. L. R. James
I think middle-class people have the biggest trauma if they have nice imagey parents, all smiling and dolled up.
John Lennon
Many textbooks fail to present students with both sides of an issue. Students are being pushed toward an education that demonizes free enterprise while advocating top-down government, deficit spending and class warfare.
Charlie Kirk
Every ruling class has wanted only this: all the rewards and none of the burdens. The operational code is: we have a lot; we can get more; we want it all.
Michael Parenti
We libertarians are not the spokesmen for any ethnic or economic class; we are the spokesmen for all classes, for all of the public; we strive to see all of these groups united, hand-in-hand, in opposition to the plundering and privileged minority that constitutes the rulers of the State.
Murray Rothbard
People with a culture of poverty suffer much less from repression than we of the middle class suffer and indeed, if I may make the suggestion with due qualification, they often have a hell of a lot more fun than we have.
Brian Friel
When amusement is necessary to get people to listen to the gospel there will be failure. This is not the method of Christ. To form an organization and provide all kinds of entertainment for young people, in order that they may come to the Bible classes, is to be foredoomed to failure.
G. Campbell Morgan
I’ve never liked the idea of just having an office in a college somewhere and teaching classes and going to the library and doing research all day. I’ve never wanted that. The glamorous life is the life that appeals to me.
Ben Stein
My very sassy, older southern sister is very quick to point out that it’s a luxury that my daughter gets to come to work with me. She does, and I have lunch with her every single day. My mom says I have ‘high class problems.’
Angela Kinsey
The thing about frontiers, it allows the individuals who are best, whether they’re men or women or minorities or whatever, to step to the top. So in traditional societies, old world societies, in the United Kingdom if you would; if you were born into the right stratus, the right class, you had the ability to succeed.
Peter Diamandis
I was the kind of kid who couldn’t really stop making up stories during class. I didn’t do very well academically because I was always drawing these little doodles in the margins of my notebooks and I wasn’t bringing home the best grades.
Meg Cabot
I could not do what I do, and teach a class, and never miss a deadline, never be late for anything if I was a lush, OK? I would really love to read a piece that said, ‘He is not a lush.’ That would be fabulous, it would be a first, I could show it to people and say, ‘Look!’
Christopher Hitchens
I’m from a lower middle class background; all my family were immigrants.
Billy Corgan
A surprise trigonometry quiz that everyone in class fails? Must be in the Lord’s plan to give us challenges.
Nicholas Sparks
I won’t say I was slow developer, but our teacher was quite pleased to have someone her own age in the class to talk to.
Chic Murray
I was born and raised in a suburb of Paris by a working-class family.
Olivier Martinez
You have to be really tenacious. You have to keep at it. There are many roads to get there. If you can get yourself into Harvard, that’s a good way to go, because every Harvard graduating class, the agencies come trolling around and they’ll look for you. So if you go to Harvard, you’ll get found there.
Louis C. K.
Building a World Class Company is a commitment to the integration of passion, purpose, and practice.
Michael Gerber
Foreign correspondence has a natural element of romanticism – and this could be seen as soon as that class of professional reporter emerged in the last half of the 19th century.
John Maxwell Hamilton
I’ve always wanted to write a book relating my experiences growing up as a deaf child in Chicago. Contrary to what people might think, it wasn’t all about hearing aids and speech classes or frustrations.
Marlee Matlin
Grace Kelly writes great songs, sings beautifully, is a world class saxophonist, and is going to be a big big star
Huey Lewis
Broadly speaking, human beings may be divided into three classes: those who are billed to death, those who are worried to death, and those who are bored to death.
Winston Churchill
I studied with Sandy Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse. I was in the last class to study with him before he had his larynx removed, so I actually remember the sound of his voice. He was an incredible teacher.
Mary Steenburgen
The final result of our researches has widened the class of substances sensitive to light vibrations, until we can propound the fact of such sensitiveness being a general property of all matter.
Alexander Graham Bell
I did in fact take a couple of classes at my local college here in NYC. But I did it unwillingly and without enthusiasm. That is until a protest broke out in the streets around campus against rising tuition costs.
Lewis Schiff
The last time I was pulled over was in 2005. I was going 55 in a 35 mile per hour zone – which I don’t understand because you can barely even idle at 35 miles per hour. Anyway, I was ordered to go to traffic school. It was an 8-hour class and really painful.
Danica Patrick
The Marine Corps is supposed to be the toughest and most rigorous of its class.
Adam Driver
Wage theft, worker rights and workplace discrimination should not be swept under the rug. The United States cannot have a functional economy where all the gains go to the corporate class while all the pain goes to regular workers.
James P. Hoffa
The cynic puts all human actions into two classes – openly bad and secretly bad.
Henry Ward Beecher
A mob is the method by which good citizens turn over the law and the government to the criminal or irresponsible classes.
Ray Stannard Baker
Which to this day is a source of enormous guilt, because I left with three classes to go in the business school to sign a contract with 20th Century Fox.
Tom Selleck
Our political class no longer has any convictions. You can only pass along the beliefs that you hold. They no longer believe in France – they have a post-national worldview. I call them France-skeptics. That’s why democracy is collapsing here in France.
Marine Le Pen
If you’re using first-class land for biofuels, then you’re competing with the growing of food. And so you’re actually spiking food prices by moving energy production into agriculture.
Bill Gates
No use going to class unless you go to the library.
Ray Bradbury
I enjoy talking to my football men and my chemistry classes and I feel sure that they are quite interested in what I have to say.
Knute Rockne
In high school, I weighed 175 to 180. I looked like Abraham Lincoln. I was 6-foot-3, biggest thing in the class, but tall, not fat.
Willard Scott
I came from a white middle class neighborhood. Was I expected to go back there and teach the woman next door about Renaissance sonnets? The embarrassing truth of the matter was that I was being chosen because Yale University had some peculiar idea about what my skin color or ethnicity signified.
Richard Rodriguez
Not with the Rochester Philharmonic, but I formed my own orchestra, made up of musicians from the Eastman School, where I’m on the faculty now, direct the Jazz Ensemble and teach improvisation classes.
Chuck Mangione
Hollywood is a strange place. The class structure here is more rigid than almost anyplace I’ve ever experienced. It’s made more difficult by the fact that it’s constantly changing. You never know what class you belong to unless you’re one of the two or three people that have been in the same echelon for a long, long time.
Alan Arkin
Health is survival. But survival with style and class.
Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz
Dubai’s world class physical infrastructure has already established it as a major player in terms of trade, tourism and as the leading conference and exhibition venue in this part of the world.
Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair
I simply make this point, that the monarchy in so far, as it is identified with what is, in my opinion, an obsolete class structure, is making a mistake, and the task of those who are responsible for the conduct of the monarchical institution is to detach it from that class structure.
Malcolm Muggeridge
Before adolescence I had an incredible voice. Like when I was 12, 13, 14 – I was taking acting classes, I was painting, I was making music, I was taking photographs. I was kind of exploding creatively, and then something about adolescence really just ground that out of me.
Lynn Shelton
Work is the curse of the drinking class.
I can resist everything except temptation.
Moderation is a fatal thing – nothing succeeds like excess.
We are all of us in the gutter. But some of us are looking at the stars.
Oscar Wilde
I crushed on the most popular guy in school! I saw him at a concert and I shouted out,” Is that Shane Lopes? You were the most popular guy in my class, but you never wanted to go out with me. Instead it was Amanda Wayne. What are you thinking now?
Katy Perry
Armchair poverty tourism has been around as long as authors have written about class. As an author, I have struggled myself with the nuances of writing about poverty without reducing any community to a catalog of its difficulties.
Leslie Jamison
A nation is all the individuals of same blood, forming by their cohesion a natural related collective being with it s own organs and state which are social classes and the State and the same soul, which is nationality.
A. C. Cuza
I ran for ninth grade class president. Came in a close second.
Kristin Lehman
This is not to say that I wasn’t completely repulsed. I mean, I wasn’t exactly proud that my stepbrother was in there tongue wrestling with the second stupidest person in our class, after himself.
Meg Cabot
When I was very young I never thought I was attractive, because I was a tomboy and I was always the biggest girl in the class.
Michelle Pfeiffer
Each of our children during their high school years went to ‘early morning seminary’ – scripture study classes that met in the home of a church member every school day morning from 6:30 until 7:15.
Clayton Christensen
Well, I took ballet for many, many years, so my whole childhood really revolved around dance class. I grew up around dance; my mother was a dancer.
Amy Sherman-Palladino
I don’t usually fly in first class, but I fart in first class.
Demetri Martin
I remember a class I taught at Ohio State where I assigned a Mary Gaitskill story, which really wasn’t that bad, and I had this one girl refuse to read it. But better that reaction than no reaction at all.
Donald Ray Pollock
you can’t know the meaning of the lesson until class is over!
Pearl Cleage
The bourgeoisie is many times stronger than we. To give it the weapon of freedom of the press is to ease the enemy’s cause, to help the class enemy. We do not desire to end in suicide, so we will not do this.
Vladimir Lenin
If those who oppose Freethought did not strive to force all to think as they do, accept Christ by faith, believe the bible to be infallible, keep Sunday as a holy day, and work for a future reward, then our fight would be at an end instantly. Liberty of Conscience is all we ask – not control of any class, creed, or sect.
Etta Semple
I still am amazed by the reaction I get from people when I tell them that there was zero immigration in this country from 1924 to 1965. And the reason that people don’t know that, A, they just don’t know it, it’s not reported, it’s never been part of history class, history education.
Rush Limbaugh
I liked all of my science classes from biology to chemistry. I thought dissecting was one of the most interesting parts of it.
Arnaz Battle
I’m not naturally a gifted dancer, and I don’t enjoy it. I didn’t go to any of those classes in drama school ’cause I was like, “I’m not going to dance. I don’t need to learn to dance.” I regret that.
Richard Madden
I consider fiction a very high-class form of lying. I enjoy and admire it enormously, but I don’t think I’m very good at it.
Diane Ackerman
Poor people and most of the middle class are not willing to be uncomfortable. Remember, being comfortable is their biggest priority in life… The only time you can actually grow is when you are outside your comfort zone.
T. Harv Eker
It is not until science has become a discipline to which the research ability of any mind from any class in society can be attracted that it can become rigorously scientific.
Margaret Mead
It is not by the absolute quantity of produce obtained by either class, that we can correctly judge of the rate of profit, rent, and wages, but by the quantity of labour required to obtain that produce.
David Ricardo
Science fiction has always been a means for political comment. H.G. Wells’ ‘The War of the Worlds’ wasn’t about a Martian invasion – it was a critique of British colonialism, and… ‘The Time Machine’ is really an indictment of the British class system.
Robert J. Sawyer
I’ve been giving this lecture to first-year classes for over twenty-five years. You’d think they would begin to understand it by now.
John Edensor Littlewood
My first real kiss came when I was 10, and it was in an acting class. I had to do a scene from a movie where someone gets kissed under a tree, and I did not want to do it! But my acting partner wanted me to feel comfortable, so he bought a picnic basket with all these snacks. He made such an effort – and it was cute.
Vanessa Hudgens
One of the big things coming out of healthcare reform is a thing called the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act (CLASS) which is a mechanism to reimburse people staying at home for technology and services that allow them to stay at home.
Colin Angle
Now my dad is with me, traveling with me and a big part of this whole thing is I like to mix it up a little bit, you know. Who gets to take their father on a private jet across the country and stay in first class hotels? So we’re enjoying it, but I’d stop if it’s not possible.
Shia LaBeouf
I went to India and met some people who had been involved in this guerrilla business, middle-class people who were rather vain and foolish. There was no revolutionary grandeur to it. Nothing.
V. S. Naipaul
The Jews are a class violating every regulation of trade established by the Treasury Department, and also department orders and are herein expelled from the department within 24 hours from receipt of this order.
Ulysses S. Grant
Every child needs nature. Not just the ones with parents who appreciate nature. Not only those of a certain economic class or culture or set of abilities. Every child.
Richard Louv
You have to understand that a lot of the working class is not white.
David Remnick
Fortunately, her year of graduate classes prepared her for obnoxious conduct.
Leslie Marmon Silko
All the world suffers from the usury of the Jews, their monopolies and deceit. They have brought many unfortunate peoples into a state of poverty, especially farmers, working-class people, and the very poor.
Pope Clement VIII
There is a group of us that met through Howard Klein’s class in Los Angeles. Howard Klein is a prominent acting teacher. We got together and did this short Night Music that was such an amazing experience, Guy and I were thinking, ‘Okay, what do we do next?’ So he wrote this next movie of his, Loulou.
Boti Bliss
The Republican Party did not disparage the ruling class, because most of its officials are or would like to be part of it.
Angelo Codevilla
The CDO was, in effect, a credit laundering service for the residents of Lower Middle Class America. For Wall Street it was a machine that turned lead into gold.
Michael Lewis
It’s partly the Southernization of America, in that the Southern working-class version of redneck is becoming the national version, and it’s good-natured, it has humor and, in some ways, it’s a performance.
Robert Charles Wilson
Well everyone’s a world class ground fighter until they get a punch to the face. So that’s how I deal with all these ground fighters like everyone else. I hit ’em in the head and there goes your F**king black belt.
Mark Hunt
Whatever class and race divergences exist, top cats are tom cats.
Elizabeth Janeway
Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.
Frederick Douglass
Occasionally, the whole class struggle may be summed up in the struggle for one word against another word. Certain words struggle amongst themselves as enemies. Other words are the site of an ambiguity: the stake in a decisive but undecided battle
Louis Althusser
In our English popular religion the common conception of a future state of bliss is that of … a kind of perfected middle-class home, with labour ended, the table spread, goodness all around, the lost ones restored, hymnody incessant.
Matthew Arnold
Upper classes are a nation’s past; the middle class is its future.
Ayn Rand
Jews are not part of a European ruling class imposed on helpless natives, but are caught up in a tragedy in which two peoples are struggling for the same piece of land.
Jack Schwartz
I think that the same kind of openness and fluidity and willingness to interrogate power that we, as feminists, expect from men in alliance on questions of class should also be the expectation that women of colour can rely upon with our white feminist allies.
Kimberle Williams Crenshaw
I was named Class Clown in the high school yearbook, so I was always turning to comedy and laughter to heal and to get me through things.
Guillermo Diaz
When people say that college isn’t worthwhile and paying all this money isn’t worthwhile, I really disagree. I think those experiences and those classes that may not necessarily seem applicable in the moment end up coming back to you time and time again.
Kevin Systrom
My son has been a class clown and it sort of ran in the family.
Robert Klein
The Negro was freed and turned loose as a penniless, landless, naked, ignorant laborer. Ninety-nine per cent were field hands and servants of the lowest class.
W. E. B. Du Bois
And middle-class women, although taught to value established forms, are in the same position as the working class: neither can use established forms to express what the forms were never intended to express (and may very well operate to conceal).
Joanna Russ
There’s a vast class – the poor, the underprivileged, the people least likely to vote – who are not represented any more.
Austin Mitchell
I joined Khalsa College just opposite Don Bosco in class XI, but soon I quit studies and was sent to Bangkok by my father to learn martial arts, as that is the only place we could afford given that I would also work there to support my training.
Akshay Kumar
Since the working-class lives from hand to mouth,it buys as long as it has the means to buy.
Karl Marx
If there is one thing I learned by reading Epstein’s “The Sports Gene” it is that world-class athletes are, by definition, abnormal: that is, the kind of person capable of competing at that level is necessarily very different from the rest of us physiologically. They are outliers.
Malcolm Gladwell
I love doing Jazzercise! It’s totally reinvented itself. It’s upbeat, it’s a great cardio class for an hour, and you burn lots of calories.
Cheryl Burke
I got picked on a lot, even by teachers too. I liked to listen to musicals and bake, and my homeroom teacher found out and mocked me in front of the whole class for baking.
Dan Savage
All I know for sure is that issues like race, like class, are always best approached with compassion and open-mindedness.
Ezra Koenig
Cause and effect, the riddle of all history, is a particular devil in financial history; and never more so than today, where entire classes of security are collapsing not on public exchanges and stock-tickers but because there are no markets to establish prices this side of nothing.
James Buchan
I used to have a phrase: Liberalism is spreading misery equally. And now the ruling class throughout Washington seems to have adopted this.
Rush Limbaugh
Comedy, it’s a way for me to keep my acting chops. It’s like a free acting class, to get up in front of a live audience. You get to have fun telling stories.
Gabrielle Dennis
The capitalist class rules but does not govern: it contents itself with ruling the government.
Karl Kautsky
I’m fed most by nature; going to the beach or lying in the grass are the greatest kinds of medicine. Cooking for other people. Kicking it with friends and family. And I love dancing – by myself in my house, with friends anywhere, or in a class.
Idara Victor
In Canada an ordinary New England house would be mistaken for the chГўteau, and while every village here contains at least severalgentlemen or “squires,” there is but one to a seigniory.
Henry David Thoreau
But I do not admit the comparison between your slaves and even the lowest class of European free labourers, for the former are allowed the exercise of no faculties but those which they enjoy in common with the brutes that perish.
Fanny Kemble
You can’t buy class.
Peter Hook
Only two classes of books are of universal appeal. The very best and the very worst.
Ford Madox Ford
If as a member of a slave nation I could deliver the suppressed classes from their slavery without freeing myself from my own, I would do so today. But it is an impossible task.
Mahatma Gandhi
I was eleventh-grade class president. That was the first elective office I held until I came into Congress.
Donna Edwards
I hated art as a kid. I didn’t even like art class. I didn’t like to draw. I would make my dad do all the drawings because I hated it so much.
Wade Guyton
A first class system of early childhood education is the hallmark of a caring and civilized society.
Andy Hargreaves
There is no alternative to class struggle.
Vyacheslav Molotov
Class is striving hard to be the best at what you do while taking the needs of others intoВ consideration
Roger Staubach
I started playing the acoustic guitar for more singer-songwriter type stuff. I bet if I would have gotten more approval for my “rock playing”, I might be a world class shredder.
Jill Sobule
You don’t take a class; you’re thrown into motherhood and learn from experience.
Jennie Finch
I read the original webtoon ‘Itaewon Class’ before seeing the drama. The character of Park Sae Roy left a particularly deep impression on me, and I really liked him.
Kim Tae-hyung
Liberals lost touch with working-class Americans because they never had to have a conversation about values with those voters; they could just rely on the courts to impose their views.
David Brooks
If you think you’re a second-class citizen, you are.
Ted Turner
I majored in illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design, although I never had any intention of being an illustrator and didn’t take any classes in illustration there. It was just that the illustration degree had no requirements.
Brian Selznick
When I was in college, the first thing we did in acting class was to observe an animal at the zoo and become that animal. So I picked a wallaby.
Claire Coffee
A public man has no right to let his actions be determined by particular interests. He does the same thing as a judge who accepts a bribe. Like a judge he must consider what is right, not what is advantageous to a party or class.
Lord Acton
Middle class Labour leaders are recaptured by the establishment when they die.
Tony Benn
The brainy class is made up of individuals who think for themselves and beyond formal education are continuous learners who tend to be self-taught.
Maximillian Degenerez
We will lower the tax burden on middle class Americans by asking the very wealthy to pay their fair share. Middle class taxpayers will have a choice between a children’s tax credit or a significant reduction in their income tax rate.
William J. Clinton
I have been amazed by the Anglo-Saxon’s lack of curiosity about the internal lives and emotions of the Negroes, and for that matter, any non-Anglo-Saxon peoples within our borders, above the class of unskilled labor.
Zora Neale Hurston
While there is a lower class, I am in it, while there is a criminal element, I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.
Eugene V. Debs
I endured quite a few injuries when I was younger and had my first surgery on my foot when I was 15. But I love dancing. ‘Anna Karenina’ was great for me as it meant I could combine the two and I actually went back and did some classes.
Alicia Vikander
You know, I was the class clown in Catholic school, but I never thought I would make a living out of it!
Sofia Vergara
Arsenal are the most beautiful club in England. At Man City and Chelsea, they will never have that class and style.
Marco van Basten
If there is one class of person I have never quite trusted, it is a man who knows no doubt.
Geraldine Brooks
If you’ve been fat, you will always feel and see the world as a fat person; you know how difficult it is… It’s the same coming from a working-class background… it never leaves you.
Caitlin Moran
Magnetism, as you recall from physics class, is a powerful force that causes certain items to be attracted to refrigerators.
Dave Barry
Those 25 dancers we worked with for a day, in as highly productive a way as possible – a long class, a period of teaching bits of the repertory – in fact I didn’t teach Bank, I’ve used parts of Oil and Water.
Siobhan Davies
Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class…involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, ownership of motor vehicles, golf courses, small electric appliances, home and work place air-conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable…
Maurice Strong
I was sort of the class-clown type, and I was also in school plays, and I always liked comedy.
Rachel Dratch
We need to understand that we are not each others’ enemies in this country. And it is only the political class that derives its power by creating friction. It is only the media that derives its importance by creating friction… that uses every little thing to create this chasm between people. This is not who we are.
Benjamin Carson
A downtrodden class… will never be able to make an effective protest until it achieves solidarity.
H. G. Wells
I had so many offers after ‘True Blood’ for things that were someone in the same vein, but nowhere near Alan Ball’s vision. Or something that was over-the-top and fantastical. And I’ve always wanted to play the regular, working-class mom, and I’ve never really had the chance to do that.
Michelle Forbes
He may not be in a class all by himself, but it don’t take long to call the roll.
Bum Phillips
All these children [who did not have music and art classes at school] go out into the world without knowing that there is anything other than what they have. Of course, children do look at TV, but what does it give them?
Bette Midler
I want people to make a lot more than $9. $9 is not enough. The problem is that if you can’t do that by mandating it in the minimum wage laws. Minimum wage laws never worked in terms of helping the middle class attain more prosperity.
Marco Rubio
Without the presence of black people in America, European-Americans would not be “white”– they would be Irish, Italians, Poles, Welsh, and other engaged in class, ethnic, and gender struggles over resources and identity. (p. 107-108)
Cornel West
He taught only one class: ‘Unlikely Maths’. But since the time was listed as “now” and the place, “everywhere,” this was hardly helpful in tracking him down.
Patrick Rothfuss
I was taught from a young age that many people would treat me as a second-class citizen because I was African-American and because I was female.
Queen Latifah
I am the son of a nurse from Bangalore. I went to St Joseph’s but was not made for studies. I did my first play in Class VII and realised that I got a high from the claps of the audience.
Prakash Raj
I am who I am: an Irish Catholic kid, working class from Long Island. And I made it big.
Bill O’Reilly
We all have a role to play – the President, Congress, parents, students and schools – in making college affordable and keeping the middle class dream alive.
Arne Duncan
The art of cartooning is vulgarity. The only reason for cartooning to exist is to be on the edge. If you only take apart what they allow you to take apart, you’re Disney. Cartooning is a low-class, for-the-public art, just like graffiti art and rap music. Vulgar but believable, that’s the line I kept walking.
Ralph Bakshi
I’ve decided to retire from top class racing. It has been an incredible experience and has provided with me some unforgettable moments.
Sete Gibernau
You know the funny thing, I don’t get along with rich people. I get along with the middle class and the poor people better than I get along with the rich people.
Donald Trump
I have world class photographic red-eye pretty much all the time. As a general rule, if it’s taken with a flash, I look like I am possessed by the blazing forces of darkness, at least in the eye department.
Neil Gaiman
Appellant constituted a legitimate class of one, and this provides a basis for Congress’s decision to proceed with dispatch with respect to his materials.
William J. Brennan, Jr.
No class or group or party in Germany could escape its share of responsibility for the abandonment of the democratic Republic and the advent of Adolf Hitler. The cardinal error of the Germans who opposed Nazism was their failure to unite against it.
William L. Shirer
Comfort came in with the middle classes.
Clive Bell
If I taught a class, on my final exam I would take an Internet company and ask, ‘How much is this company worth?’ Anyone who would answer, I would flunk.
Warren Buffett
Violence doesn’t have a race, a class, a religion, or a nationality, but it does have a gender.
Rebecca Solnit
I was the class clown, but I was a reluctant class clown because I was always and still am somewhat embarrassed by performing. I have terrible stage fright, and I don’t like being in front of people.
Chris Elliott
If General Haig is so smart, why did he finish 214th (out of 310) in his graduating class at West Point? Does that mean there are 213 generals his age who are smarter than he is?
Calvin Trillin
The current transgender movement is composed of a great number of factions, divided by those old favorites of class, race, age, language, region, and nationality.
Kate Bornstein
My mom put me in dance classes when I was 5 years old.
Danny Pudi
The greatest lesson I learned that year in Mrs. Henry’s class was the lesson Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., tried to teach us all: Never judge people by the color of their skin. God makes each of us unique in ways that go much deeper.
Ruby Bridges
I never fully understood it till my friend Professor Tolkien asked me the very simple question, ‘What class of men would you expect to be most preoccupied with, and hostile to, the idea of escape?’ and gave the obvious answer: jailers.
C. S. Lewis
I was the guy who was friends with everybody. Yes, I had my core group of friends, but I wasn’t part of a clique that excluded people. I hope they thought I was a nice guy. I tried to be just friendly and outgoing. I was class president. I’m supposed to run my class reunion in 2013.
Austin Stowell
The most common occupation for women in G rated films is royalty – which is a great gig, if you can get it.
Geena Davis
Did he only wear a shirt during class? Oh my God, he seriously lived across the hall. Jacob was going to flip… and probably move in. That would be fun. I really liked Jacob, but I had a feeling he’d borrow my clothes.
J. Lynn
This is not class warfare, this is generational warfare. This administration and old wealthy people have declared war on young people. That is the real war that is going on here. And that is the war we’ve got to talk about.
James Carville
We have an incredible warrior class in this country – people in law enforcement, intelligence – and I thank God every night we have them standing fast to protect us from the tremendous amount of evil that exists in the world.
Brad Thor
I’m dying!” Malfoy yelled, as the class panicked. “I’m dying, look at me! It’s killed me!
J. K. Rowling
My long experience with all classes of humanity had made me somewhat of a student of human nature.
Oscar Micheaux
I was voted Most Humorous in my senior class in high school, and I was a fan of comedy, my whole life. I never got into the horror genre, and action was fine, but I just loved comedy. Any comedy I could get my hands on, I would. I watched Saturday Night Live religiously. I’ve just been a fan of comedy, my whole life.
Rob Riggle
I think the identity politics that have been played, particularly the class-warfare version of identity politics that has been played, has put America into a class-based society – more so than at any point in my lifetime.
Paul Ryan
For reasons that have stunningly little to do with crime or crime rates, we, as a nation, have chosen to lock up more than two million people behind bars. Millions more are on probation or parole, or branded felons for life and thus locked into a permanent second-class status.
Michelle Alexander
Because – Bobby Lewis said this once to us in class, the better you get, the less credit you’ll get. Because the better you are, the more it looks like walking and talking and everybody thinks they can walk and talk.
James Lipton
Most American Jews came from the lower middle classes, and therefore they brought with them not a lot of Jewish culture. The American Jewish story starts with Ellis Island, and the candy store in the Bronx.
Arthur Hertzberg
My mother should have been Jewish. She could have taught a class on how to induce guilt.
Lorna Luft
We lose our bearings entirely by speaking of the ‘lower classes’ when we mean humanity minus ourselves.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I refuse to charge for my karate classes, I refuse to charge for Q&A panels, and when people come to my table, if you have money, great, but if you don’t, who cares?
Jason David Frank
I’ve been sniffing out the guys in my English class (to the extent that this is possible without getting my throat cut), but they smell the same way they always do: like feet and testicles. As opposed to freesias. I don’t want to keep sniffing them, Lyd. – Letter from Seb to Lyd.
Jaclyn Moriarty
To the first class belong the Gospels and Acts; to the second, the Epistles; to the third, the Revelation.
Philip Schaff
The reason I talk so much about the middle class is it’s the glue that holds America together. It really is. And we don’t speak enough to their legitimate concerns.
Joe Biden
The middle class male thinks he has a monopoly on objectivity.
Grayson Perry
Historically, it took a long time before the court took any women law clerks. Finally, it did, but the numbers have never matched very effectively the percentages of law graduates out of graduating classes. We have far more than we ever did before and it’s continued to grow, but it isn’t a nice match yet.
Sandra Day O’Connor
I just want to live like a full-time tourist, to show up at the airport, pick a destination, walk up to the counter and say, ‘Do you have any first-class seats?’
Edgerrin James
Now we are proud that the government has moved from the class of the exploiters to the class of the people who were being exploited. And in the great name of the same class, I raise this nation’s flag which is a strong symbol of this transfer.
Nur Muhammad Taraki
Without class differences, England would cease to be the living theatre it is.
Anthony Burgess
I was a ‘learn by doing’ writer – I never took any formal writing classes. So it took a long time to figure things out and find my voice.
Sara Zarr
Equal wealth and equal opportunities of culture have simply made us all members of one class.
Edward Bellamy
I love to sweat, so I’ll do any workout class.
Toni Garrn
And so class will some day supplant race in world affairs. Race war will then be merely a side-show to the gigantic class war which will be waged in the big tent we call the world.
Ralph Bunche
There’s always been a nasty strain of class prejudice ingrained in the condemnation of football’s ‘undeserving rich,’ as if the working class is uniquely susceptible to being corrupted by money, and as if they deserve their wealth less than those born to it.
Mark Fisher
Romney economics would spell disaster for America’s middle class. In this economy there are shipbuilders and ship wreckers.
Martin O’Malley
If you look at the world-class performers at the top of the game, their numbers are just exceptional and that is the level he is at.
Brendan Rodgers
For Nature is accustomed to rehearse with certain large, perhaps baser, and all classes of wild (animals), and to place in the imperfect the rudiments of the perfect animals.
Marcello Malpighi
People’s wants are not fixed; they generally want what others in their chosen comparison class appear to be enjoying and what advertising presents to them as attainable for them and as bringing happiness.
Catherine Wilson
Before birds get sucked into jet engines, do they ever think, Is that Rod Stewart in first class?
Eddie Izzard
The key to becoming world-class in your endeavors is to build your performance around world-class routines. It can be difficult, even futile, to predict or control what will show up in the middle of your workday. But you can almost always control how your day starts and ends. I have routines for both.
Darren Hardy
Average, middle-class people, the people of Macomb County, couldn’t afford health care. Now they can [with Obamacare].
Rachel Martin
Today’s tax cuts provide yet another illustration of the Republicans’ fiscally irresponsible economic policies that ignore the needs of America’s middle class, students, and working families.
Ellen Tauscher
Criminals are never very amusing. It’s because they’re failures. Those who make real money aren’t counted as criminals. This is a class distinction, not an ethical problem.
Orson Welles
I was into sports in high school, but I got kicked out of Richmond High at 17, so I never graduated. However, I still get invites to the class reunions… I don’t know that I want to see how everyone looks now.
Ryan Stiles
Getting over someone is a grieving process. You mourn the loss of the relationship, and that’s only expedited by ‘Out of sight, out of mind.’ But when you walk outside and see them on a billboard or on TV or on the cover of a magazine, it reopens the wound. It’s a high-class problem, but it’s real.
Hank Azaria
Hunger justifies the middle classes.
Julien Torma
I really wasn’t a class clown.
Kevin James
In college I took an acting class as a joke. It sounded like something fun and easy at the time. I had originally wanted to go to art school, but I gave all that up because I didn’t want to be a starving artist.
Michael Graziadei
Everyone but an idiot knows that the lower classes must be kept poor, or they will never be industrious.
Arthur Young
No circumstance would prevent over-population so effectually as a general raising of the customary standard of comfort among the poorer classes. If they had accustomed themselves to a more comfortable style of living, they would use every effort not again to sink below it.
Millicent Fawcett
our republican ideas cannot be consistently carried out while women are excluded from any share in the government. … Any class of human beings to whom a position of perpetual subordination is assigned, however much they may be petted and flattered, must inevitably be dwarfed, morally and intellectually.
Lydia M. Child
Another two-bowl morning?” – Damien Maslin asking Zoey Redbird if her love of cereal was the reason she was almost late for Vamp Soc class
P. C. Cast
It is a campaign to break down every barrier that holds you back. We need more than a plan for the big banks. The middle class needs a raise. And we need more jobs.
Hillary Clinton
Being young, working class, and black, everything you do is policed. If someone hits you and you hit back, you are aggressive. If you cry, you are weak. You are kind of always pretending to be something.
Daniel Kaluuya
The human race is divided into two sharply differentiated and mutually antagonistic classes: a smal l minority that plays with ideas and is capable of taking them in, and a vast majority that finds them painful, and is thus arrayed against them, and against all who have traffic with them.
H. L. Mencken
I grew up in a middle-class family in the middle of America in the middle of the last century.
Hillary Clinton
The only change is that baseball has turned Paige from a second class citizen to a second class immortal.
Satchel Paige
The first thing that intellect does with an object is to class it with something else.
William James
There is only one class of men, the privileged class
Albert Camus
I remember my parents being really on me about speaking in a certain way when I was young, I think because they came from a class that aspired to talk like that.
Toby Stephens
You know, I have a lot of books on my iPad, but when I try to read them, I find myself wandering off to play games. Those are books I’m interested in. I can’t imagine what would have happened to me in college if my biology class had been on the same computer as “Words With Friends” and “Doom.”
Gail Collins
All communication is more or less cross-cultural. We learn to use language as we grow up, and growing up in different parts of the country, having different ethnic, religious, or class backgrounds, even just being male or female – all result in different ways of talking.
Deborah Tannen
Instead of regarding birds as deriving from dinosaurs, Scansoriopteryx reinstates the validity of regarding them as a separate class uniquely avian and non-dinosaurian.
Alan Feduccia
Deliberately causing mayhem in Snape’s Potions class was about as safe as poking a sleeping dragon in the eye.
J. K. Rowling
I took an acting class. After the first day, the teacher quit, so they said take another. When I saw ‘How to be a Stand-up Comedian,’ it resonated. I realized I’d rather make 200 people laugh than make one person cry.
Wendy Liebman
Any reading not of a vicious species must be a good substitute for the amusements too apt to fill up the leisure of the labouring classes.
James Madison
We’ll rail against the way the government has destroyed our health care market in one breath and resist the support offered to the poor and middle class to navigate this brokenness with the other. This is not conservative; it is incoherence masquerading as ideological purity.
J. D. Vance
I was very short. Everybody else was two years older in my class, and I had curly hair and was teacher’s pet.
Howard Stringer
I skate about 15 to 20 hours a week and also incorporate a lot of off-ice training. I take ballet and Pilates classes and lift weights with my physical therapist when I’m not on the ice.
Sasha Cohen
I am very interested in the enlightenment of women. Very few teachers of advanced self discovery work with women, and if they do it’s usually in a very second handed way. They treat women as second class citizens.
Frederick Lenz
When I was 15, I started playing first class cricket and always dreamt of being a Test cricketer, wanted to do something for the country, married in 1995, have 2 kids it’s been great.
Sachin Tendulkar
I never did go back to acting class. I was too busy working.
Kirstie Alley
Budgets are not merely affairs of arithmetic, but in a thousand ways go to the root of prosperity of individuals, the relation of classes and the strength of kingdoms.
William E. Gladstone
Told reporters Wednesday he can support a pathway to citizenship for some of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. and that he actually prefers it to a plan that would create a second-class of citizens through alternative programs.
Darrell Issa
In the various stages of development which the struggle of working class against the bourgeoisie has to pass through, they always and everywhere represent the interests of the movement as a whole.
Karl Marx
He didn’t have no respect as a professional fighter should, no class. I was going to make him pay with his health for everything he said… I wanted to do it very slowly. I wanted him to remember this for a long time.
Mike Tyson
There are only two classes in good society in England: the equestrian classes and the neurotic classes.
George Bernard Shaw
And what makes the whites who have these middle-class values have those values? Where did they get it? They didn’t have these same values four hundred years, five hundred years ago.
Malcolm X
I was a student at Kent State University in May of 1970. I was also a musician in a regionally popular band called the James Gang. I was still going to class and stuff, but I was in and out because we were playing a lot.
Joe Walsh
College costs continue to rise, and student loan debt threatens to price many Americans out of a college education and out of the middle class.
Dianne Feinstein
For some reason, politically there’s a distinction between cocaine and crack. Cocaine is not a felony conviction because it’s used by middle class and wealthy people. Crack, which is used by people in South Central, carries a felony conviction.
Nick Broomfield
My first show was when I was a high school freshman, but it was at the junior class dance. My older friend and bandmate booked it.
Frank Iero
The parasites live where the great have little secret sores.
Friedrich Nietzsche
When I was 13 I would come to school with makeup and nail polish and I had teachers who would say, ‘We can’t teach you and you’re not allowed in class.’
Bill Kaulitz
Jeremy used to hate it when she was younger because someone in her class told her redheads were freaks of nature.But our mother told her that redheads were genetically more courageous than other people and that she should always where her hair long,like a wariors badge of honor.
Ellen Potter
Go back to – my first campaign for the United States Senate. I got a bunch of people now talking about inequality. But back then they sure weren’t. Back then, folks were saying I was preaching class warfare. Now it’s suddenly their campaign platform.
Barack Obama
Bitcoin as an asset class is brilliant, as a means of payment, fantastic.
Max Keiser
We all like to look forward to things. Incentivize yourself with a reward—a massage, dinner with a friend, a night watching your favorite show, a yoga class on Saturday morning. Visualizing a reward at the end of the to-do tunnel may help with reaching goals/completing tasks.
Samantha Ettus
If Donald Trump had said something like I’m going to raise taxes on the middle class, it would be all over the news. You would be questioning his sanity.
Rudy Giuliani
The whole idea of hobknobbing and schmoozing and the concept of an “elite” class of celebrities better than the common people has always made my stomach turn.
Bill Watterson
The law is not abstract, impartially arbitrating between conflicting social classes; it is a tool in the hands of those who govern.
Josephine Herbst
Every ethnic group has a mythology… Until ‘Roots’… there was nothing in the popular culture to refute the paragraph in elementary school history class that said, ‘Slaves picked the cotton, were happy and life wasn’t so bad.’
A’Lelia Bundles
Each artist comes to the painting or sculpture because there he can be told that he, the individual, transcends all classes and flouts all predictions. In the work of art, he finds his uniqueness confirmed.
Ben Shahn
We’ve always been in favor of improved wages for workers. When you have a strong middle class, they want to buy more stuff at Costco.
James Sinegal
Certain kinds of clichГ©s are the narcotics of the middle class.
John Clellon Holmes
The human animal varies from class to class, culture to culture. In one way we are consistent: We are irrational.
Rita Mae Brown
We are the only class in history that has been left to fight its battles alone, unaided by the ruling powers. White labor and the freed black men had their champions, but where are ours?
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
So when you do board, the first class people, they’re sitting there. A lot of them are working as your boarding. They have computers out and calculators. They’re looking up at you like, Hey, we’re making money right now!
Brian Regan
In Courtney Moreno’s In Case of Emergency the working class save the world and themselves. A wonderful first book!
Ali Liebegott
Right now, America’s middle class is struggling to meet their basic needs.
Ruben Hinojosa
Look, everything that you experience as a kid is the foundation of how you are today. I was brought up in a working class family in Leeds and when it comes to money both my parents worked hard and instilled the same attitude into me.
Mel B
Accustom a people to believe that priests, or any other class of men can forgive sins and you will have sins in abundance.
Thomas Paine
There have always been a large class of thinkers who deny that the world makes any progress. They say we move in a circle; that evils are never conquered, but only change their forms.
Lydia M. Child
Aristocrats fear the people, and wish to transfer all power to the higher classes of society.
Thomas Jefferson
I started the film [Hostel Part II]with the girls in an art class and there’s a nude male model. People think that women are objectified, well here you go! Here’s a man being objectivized but now it’s under the guise of art.
Eli Roth
Are we prepared to take on the enormous political power of the billionaire class or do we continue to slide into economic and political oligarchy?
Bernie Sanders
The Democratic Party opposes tax cuts but it cannot say so publicly. Thus, it is forced to support the idea of lowering the tax burden but using class warfare rhetoric to dispute the allocation of the relief.
Dick Morris
We do not go to bed in single pairs; even if we choose not to refer to them, we still drag there with us the cultural impedimenta of our social class, our parents’ lives, our bank balances, our sexual and emotional expectations, our whole biographies-all the bits and pieces of our unique existences.
Angela Carter
Tuesday—we had school for the first time. Madame O’Malley had a moment of silence at the beginning of French class, a class that was always punctuated with long moments of silence, and then asked us how we were feeling. “Awful,” a girl said. “En français,” Madame O’Malley replied. “En français.
John Green
Behind the epistemological scholasticism of empirio-criticism one must not fail to see the struggle of parties in philosophy, a struggle which in the last analysis reflects the tendencies and ideology of the antagonistic classes in modern society.
Vladimir Lenin
Working with Cate Blanchett, on and off the screen, has always been a highlight for me. She embodies the perfect combination of consummate actor and world-class fashion icon.
Giorgio Armani
There is no denying that there are ‘royal roads’ through existence for the upper classes; for them, at least, the highways are macadamized, swept, and watered.
Letitia Elizabeth Landon
Not everybody is created equal, and it’s important for companies to identify those high potentials and treat them differently, accelerate their development and pay them more. That process is so incredibly important to developing first-class leadership in a company.
Anne M. Mulcahy
The ultimate act of cowardice is the fat-headed wrestling guy sitting behind the frail kid in math class, clipping him on the ear, saying: ‘What are you going to do about that, faggot?’ That is cowardice. When the bullets start flying past that jock’s saucer-shaped ears, that’s not cowardice. That’s payback.
Doug Stanhope
The state is nothing but an instrument of opression of one class by another – no less so in a democratic republic than in a monarchy.
Friedrich Engels
On the first day of middle school I wore high-heeled shoes that you weren’t allowed to wear. I remember being so embarrassed because in every class I went to they kept pointing out that I couldn’t wear these shoes. I wanted to call my mom and have her bring me new shoes!
Emma Stone
There is one gratification an old author can afford a certain class of critics; that namely, of comparing him as he is with what he was. It is a pleasure to mediocrity to have its superiors brought within range.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Never fear being vulgar, just boring, middle class or dull.
Diana Vreeland
A great civilization is not conquered from without, until it has destroyed itself from within. The essential causes of Rome’s decline lay in her people, her morals, her class struggle, her failing trade, her bureaucratic despotism, her stifling taxes, her consuming wars.
Will Durant
I think one of the greatest things about the Republican Party is the understanding, we don’t point fingers and we have class.
Angie Harmon
There is no difference in our souls…That is what yoga teaches. When you and I meet together, we forget ourselves — our cultures and classes. There are no divisions, and we talk mind to mind, soul to soul. We are no different in our deepest needs. We are all humans.
B.K.S. Iyengar
Strictly speaking, no person who believes that wars between classes and nations are inevitable is fit to be in charge of the destiny of children. To believe in the unity of the human race and get children to believe it in early youth would mean the creation of that unity and the end of war.
Dora Russell
When you’re a kid, you always feel you have this weird kindred-spirit thing with other Jews, until you get older and you realize it’s just middle-class bourgeois Jews that sort of fit a template that your family fits into one way or another.
Marc Maron
I was born in Oakland and grew up, probably about five miles from Oakland, in Hayward. And Hayward was OK. Like, Hayward wasn’t – very much a working-class area and had definitely went through a decline and is now, seemingly, coming back around, which is nice to see.
Mahershala Ali
Zidane was the most unpleasant among my colleagues. I have never liked him on the pitch and we have always clashed. Albeit a champion for his class, I have never managed to see his fair play.
Fabio Cannavaro
I took an acting class for 10 seconds before I played a lead in a student movie. I showed the film to an agent who said he would send me on interviews but wouldn’t sign me.
Kirstie Alley
There are over 7,000 different types of proteins in typical eukaryotic cells; the total number depends on the cell class and function.
Ada Yonath
We need to work together, on a bipartisan basis, to create new jobs, increase job training, enact real and substantive middle class tax relief, and reward companies that create jobs at home.
Ruben Hinojosa
A moderately honest man with a moderately faithful wife, moderate drinkers both, in a moderately healthy house: that is the true middle class unit.
George Bernard Shaw
Actions are divided as regards their object into four classes; they are either purposeless , unimportant , or vain , or good .
Maimonides
There is already a generation of European graduates who feel they have been robbed of the better future they were led to expect. They are members of a new class: the precariat.
Timothy Garton Ash
I think the working-class part of me comes out. Sometimes the people who have the loudest mouths are upper-class, upper-middle-class. The quietest are often working-class people, people who are broke. There is a fear of losing whatever it is that you have. I come from that background.
Billie Joe Armstrong
Of the twenty or so civilizations known to modern Western historians, all except our own appear to be dead or moribund, and, when we diagnose each case… we invariably find that the cause of death has been either War or Class or some combination of the two.
Arnold J. Toynbee
Lord Akeldama sighed. ‘You lovebirds, how will I endure such flirtations constantly in my company? How dГ©classГ©, Lord Maccon, to love your own wife.
Gail Carriger
…many of the officials, courtiers, and priests, representing the upper class of Egyptian society but not the royalty, looked strikingly like modern Europeans, especially long-headed ones
Carleton S. Coon
There is something in us, somehow, that, in the most degraded condition, we snatch at a chance to deceive ourselves into a fanciedsuperiority to others, whom we suppose lower in the scale than ourselves.
Herman Melville
In the run-up to the 1992 Democratic convention, Clinton’s campaign realized that voters thought the young governor had a privileged upbringing. They didn’t buy his alleged concern for the middle class.
Dee Dee Myers
I’m a world class Beat Boxer; you should hear the noises I can make with my mouth.
Cara Delevingne
I myself am consummately middle class. We grew up in upper-middle-class suburbs in Oklahoma City, and thats very much the same ethos as what Richard Yates and John Cheever wrote about.
Blake Bailey
Hot yoga is the best. When you’re in [class], there are no cell phones, no talking, no distractions. You’re taking a leave from reality for an hour or so.
Shawn Johnson
We all agree that marriage is a fundamental right. And in our country, and in our society, there are no second-class citizens.
Bill T. Jones
In my life, I have learned that most people want the same thing. They are not driven by class resentment. What they want most is to make a better life for themselves and their families – and to know that the opportunities for their children will be better than they were for themselves.
Rupert Murdoch
For each successive class of phenomena, a new calculus or a new geometry, as the case might be, which might prove not wholly inadequate to the subtlety of nature.
Henry John Stephen Smith
