„In a high situation, he does not treat with contempt his inferiors. In a low situation, he does not court the favor of his superiors.“

—  Confucius Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher -551 - -479 v.Chr

The Analects, The Doctrine of the Mean
Kontext: The superior man does what is proper to the station in which he is; he does not desire to go beyond this. In a position of wealth and honor, he does what is proper to a position of wealth and honor. In a poor and low position, he does what is proper to a poor and low position. Situated among barbarous tribes, he does what is proper to a situation among barbarous tribes. In a position of sorrow and difficulty, he does what is proper to a position of sorrow and difficulty. The superior man can find himself in no situation in which he is not himself. In a high situation, he does not treat with contempt his inferiors. In a low situation, he does not court the favor of his superiors. He rectifies himself, and seeks for nothing from others, so that he has no dissatisfactions. He does not murmur against Heaven, nor grumble against men. Thus it is that the superior man is quiet and calm, waiting for the appointments of Heaven, while the mean man walks in dangerous paths, looking for lucky occurrences.

„Yet I avoid this practice in the presence of my benefactors and of my superiors.“

—  Girolamo Cardano Italian Renaissance mathematician, physician, astrologer 1501 - 1576

The Book of My Life (1930)
Kontext: This I recognize as unique and outstanding among my faults—the habit... of preferring to say above all things what I know to be displeasing to the ears of my hearers.... I keep it up wilfully, in no way ignorant of how many enemies it makes for me.... Yet I avoid this practice in the presence of my benefactors and of my superiors. It is enough not to fawn upon these, or at least not to flatter them.<!--Ch. 13

„Thus his words have respect to his actions, and his actions have respect to his words; is it not just an entire sincerity which marks the superior man?“

—  Confucius Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher -551 - -479 v.Chr

The Analects, The Doctrine of the Mean
Kontext: Earnest in practicing the ordinary virtues, and careful in speaking about them, if, in his practice, he has anything defective, the superior man dares not but exert himself; and if, in his words, he has any excess, he dares not allow himself such license. Thus his words have respect to his actions, and his actions have respect to his words; is it not just an entire sincerity which marks the superior man?

„If the superior advantages enjoyed by devotees of the status quo are to paralyze us into impotence“

—  Kirby Page American clergyman 1890 - 1957

Property (1935)
Kontext: If the superior advantages enjoyed by devotees of the status quo are to paralyze us into impotence, then, of course, no strategy of revolution can succeed. All the significant reforms and revolutions in history have been wrought in the face of terrific opposition.

„Is our race but the initial of the grand crowning type? Are there yet to be species superior to us“

—  Robert Chambers (publisher, born 1802), buch Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation

Quelle: Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation (1844), p. 276
Kontext: Is our race but the initial of the grand crowning type? Are there yet to be species superior to us in organization, purer in feeling, more powerful in device and act, and who shall take a rule over us! There is in this nothing improbable on other grounds. The present race, rude and impulsive as it is, is perhaps the best adapted to the present state of things in the world; but the external world goes through slow and gradual changes, which may leave it in time a much serener field of existence. There may then be occasion for a nobler type of humanity, which shall complete the zoological circle on this planet, and realize some of the dreams of the purest spirits of the present race.
