Caste Quotations

I am neither a child, a young man, nor an ancient; nor am I of any caste.
Guru Nanak

Ideas are fatal to caste.
E. M. Forster

For the first 1,500 years of the Christian epoch, this problem of 'authority,' in both senses of that term, was solved by having the divine mandate wrapped up in languages that the majority of the congregation could not understand, and by having it presented to them by a special caste or class who alone possessed the mystery of celestial decoding.
Christopher Hitchens

There is no caste in blood.
Edwin Arnold

I lived in a country where I couldn't live where I wanted to live. I lived in a country where I couldn't go where I wanted to eat. I lived in a country where I couldn't get a job, except for those put aside for people of my colour or caste.
Sidney Poitier
