Famous quotes containing the word rule:

    To me the “female principle” is, or at least historically has been, basically anarchic. It values order without constraint, rule by custom not by force. It has been the male who enforces order, who constructs power structures, who makes, enforces, and breaks laws.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)

    My reason, it’s true, controls my feelings, but whatever its authority, it doesn’t rule them so much as tyrannize them.
    Pierre Corneille (1606–1684)

    The rule for every man is, not to depend on the education which other men have prepared for him,—not even to consent to it; but to strive to see things as they are, and to be himself as he is. Defeat lies in self-surrender.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
