Caste Quotations

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

Sargent Shriver

I believe in an India of pluralism and diversity, not of religious bigotry and caste politics. I believe in an India that is secure in itself and confident of its place in the world, an India that is a proud example of tolerance, freedom and hope for the downtrodden.
Shashi Tharoor

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

Class - or the economic status of individuals - is evident in all societies, some very well stratified by a rigid caste system determined by birth.
