We hope these inspirational untouchable quotes and sayings make us come out of the social stigma, live in oneness, and make us better human beings.
In dogmatic patriarchal culture, women’s virtue and character are measured on the bizarre virginity status (untouched by the male).
If we look at untouchability from the social viewpoint, there is a long-standing regressive behavior of untouchability between human beings based on caste, color, and status.

Whatever the case is, one can find thought-provoking and deep-meaning quotes and sayings below on the myriad forms of untouchability.
