Famous quotes containing the word class:

    A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)

    That’s how the Germans are.... The aristocrats at the top hard as glass, cold as ice, servants of the King, the working masses willing, pliable, sentimental, susceptible to brutality, the middle class educated and cowardly to the point of servility.
    Alfred Döblin (1878–1957)

    The class of citizens who provide at once their own food and their own raiment, may be viewed as the most truly independent and happy.
    James Madison (1751–1836)
