Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own, 1929
By thinking that other people are inferior to one self. By feeling that one has some innate superiority... it may be wealth, or rank, a straight nose, or the portrait of a grandfather by Romney... for there is no end to the pathetic devices of the human imagination... over other people. Hence the enormous importance to a patriarch who has to conquer, who has to rule, of feeling that great numbers of people, half the human race indeed, are by nature inferior to himself. It must indeed be one of the chief sources of his power.
