Quotes:

Let us be very clear on this matter: if we condemn people to inequality in our society, we also condemn them to inequality in our economy.

— Lyndon B. Johnson (1908-1973) 36th President of the United States

[Dorothy:] “I cannot see how there can be more than one King or Queen in any one country, for were these all rulers, no one could tell who was Master.”

One of the Kings who stood near and overheard this remark turned to her and said: “One who is Master of himself is always a King, if only to himself. In this favored land all Kings and Queens are equal, and it is our privilege to bow before one supreme ruler – the Private Citizen.” — L. Frank Baum (1856-1919) TikTok of Oz
