Famous quotes containing the word ruling:

    Unrecognized alcoholism is the ruling pathology among writers and intellectuals.
    Diana Trilling (b. 1905)

    Still doth the soul, from its lone fastness high,
    Upon our life a ruling effluence send.
    And when it fails, fight as we will, we die;
    And while it lasts, we cannot wholly end.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    A theory of the middle class: that it is not to be determined by its financial situation but rather by its relation to government. That is, one could shade down from an actual ruling or governing class to a class hopelessly out of relation to government, thinking of gov’t as beyond its control, of itself as wholly controlled by gov’t. Somewhere in between and in gradations is the group that has the sense that gov’t exists for it, and shapes its consciousness accordingly.
    Lionel Trilling (1905–1975)
