Famous quotes containing the word rule:

    To me the “female principle” is, or at least historically has been, basically anarchic. It values order without constraint, rule by custom not by force. It has been the male who enforces order, who constructs power structures, who makes, enforces, and breaks laws.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)

    With our principles we seek to rule our habits with an iron hand, or to justify, honor, scold, or conceal them:Mtwo men with identical principles are likely to be seeking fundamentally different things with them.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    When great changes occur in history, when great principles are involved, as a rule the majority are wrong.
    Eugene V. Debs (1855–1926)
