There is nothing unequal as the equal treatment of unequals.

-- Aristotle.

A slightly different one, attributed to Thomas Jefferson, is as follows:

There is nothing more unequal than the equal treatment of unequal people.

Update [27 June 2006]:In the comment section, Pitzhov alerts us that Jefferson is not the author of the above quote, and cites the Jefferson Library as the authoritative reference.

    This page is clear evidence that Jefferson did not make this statement
