Famous quotes containing the word degree:

    [F]or as Socrates says that a wise man is a citizen of the world, so I thought that a wise woman was equally at liberty to range through every station or degree of men, to fix her choice wherever she pleased.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    I began to realize that it was bigotry of the worst kind to say that it’s better to be dead than to be born retarded or blind or without a limb. It’s a value judgment you’re making about someone’s life, based on their degree of perfection.
    Juli Loesch (b. c. 1953)

    Maybe men are separated from each other only by the degree of their misery.
    Francis Picabia (1878–1953)
