### Famous quotes containing the word rate:

“Whoever thinks his friend more important than his country, I *rate* him nowhere.”

—Sophocles (497–406/5 B.C.)

“If we became students of Malcolm X, we would not have young black men out there killing each other like they’re killing each other now. Young black men would not be impregnating young black women at the *rate* going on now. We’d not have the drugs we have now, or the alcoholism.”

—Spike Lee (b. 1956)

“Strange that the vanity which accompanies beauty—excusable, perhaps, when there is such great beauty, or at any *rate* understandable—should persist after the beauty was gone.”

—Mary A. [Elizabeth, Countess Von] Arnim (1866–1941)
