The above quote is credited to author Stephen Covey.
Writer Anais Nin had a similar notion: Ponder the above, and wonder with me: When I see others as a threat or inferior to me, what does that say about me? I believe we all unfortunately need someone to look down upon, someone whom we believe is less worthy than we are.

For God shows no partiality, no arbitrary favoritism; with God one person is not more important than another.
