„We must recover the element of quality in our traditional pursuit of equality.“

—  Adlai Stevenson mid-20th-century Governor of Illinois and Ambassador to the UN 1900 - 1965

Speech to the United Parents Association, as quoted in The New York Times (6 April 1958)
Contesto: We must recover the element of quality in our traditional pursuit of equality. We must not, in opening our schools to everyone, confuse the idea that all should have equal chance with the notion that all have equal endowments.

„Not bodies produce sensations, but element-complexes (sensation-complexes) constitute the bodies. When the physicist considers the bodies as the permanent reality, the `elements' as the transient appearance, he does not realise that all `bodies' are only mental symbols for element-complexes“

„I would not like to use big words to apply generic labels. It certainly contains elements that can favor peace, it also has other elements: we must always seek the best elements.“

„There are different temperaments. There are differences in the capacity to comprehend.“

—  Ramakrishna Indian mystic and religious preacher 1836 - 1886

Origine: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 486
Contesto: You must know that there are different tastes. There are also different powers of digestion. God has made different religions and creeds to suit different aspirants. By no means all are fit for the Knowledge of Brahman. Therefore the worship of God with form has been provided. The mother brings home a fish for her children. She curries part of the fish, part she fries, and with another part she makes pilau. By no means all can digest the pilau. So she makes fish soup for those who have weak stomachs. Further, some want pickled or fried fish. There are different temperaments. There are differences in the capacity to comprehend.

„This whole-hearted acceptance of the demands imposed by even higher standards is the basis of all human progress. A love of higher quality, we must remember, is essential in a leader.“

—  Haile Selassie Emperor of Ethiopia 1892 - 1975

Speech on Leadership in Speeches Delivered on Various Occasions, May 1957-December 1959 (1960), p. 138.
Contesto: The art of leadership is in the ability to make people want to work for you, while they are really under no obligation to do so. Leaders are people, who raise the standards by which they judge themselves and by which they are willing to be judged. The goal chosen, the objective selected, the requirements imposed, are not mainly for their followers alone.
They develop with consumate energy and devotion, their own skill and knowledge in order to reach the standard they themselves have set.
This whole-hearted acceptance of the demands imposed by even higher standards is the basis of all human progress. A love of higher quality, we must remember, is essential in a leader.

„The first category, then, is Quality of Feeling, or whatever is such as it is positively and regardless of aught else.“

—  Charles Sanders Peirce American philosopher, logician, mathematician, and scientist 1839 - 1914

Lecture II : The Universal Categories, § 1 : Presentness, CP 5.44
Pragmatism and Pragmaticism (1903)
Contesto: The quality of feeling is the true psychical representative of the first category of the immediate as it is in its immediacy, of the present in its direct positive presentness. Qualities of feeling show myriad-fold variety, far beyond what the psychologists admit. This variety however is in them only insofar as they are compared and gathered into collections. But as they are in their presentness, each is sole and unique; and all the others are absolute nothingness to it — or rather much less than nothingness, for not even a recognition as absent things or as fictions is accorded to them. The first category, then, is Quality of Feeling, or whatever is such as it is positively and regardless of aught else.

„We need to accept that India have struggled against quality spin bowling“

—  Sunil Gavaskar Indian cricket player. 1949

Former captain Sunil Gavaskar feels India got a taste of their own medicine in the World Twenty20 loss to New Zealand and the hosts should be prepared to handle quality spin if they want to dish out rank turners for their rivals, quoted on abplive.com, "India vs New Zealand: Sunil Gavaskar says India got the taste of their own medicine" http://www.abplive.in/sports/india-vs-new-zealand-sunil-gavaskar-says-india-got-the-taste-of-their-own-medicine-306872, March 16, 2016.
Contesto: If you are giving this medicine (spinning track) to opposition, then you should be able to take it yourself. We need to accept that India have struggled against quality spin bowling. If they would have won, there would not have been any talk on the pitch. Whether you win or lose, the next game against Pakistan is a must-win game. Also if you lose, the you are out of the tournament. They have struggled against New Zealand, they might find it even tougher against Pakistan, if this is the kind of pitches they want. India lost because they were over-confident but the NZ think-tank needs to be credited for picking three spinners for this match.
