The great enemy of the truth is very often not the liedeliberate, contrived and dishonest — but the mythpersistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.
~ John F. Kennedy ~
The liberty of every individual is only the reflection of his own humanity, or his human right through the conscience of all free men, his brothers and his equals.
I can feel free only in the presence of and in relationship with other men. In the presence of an inferior species of animal I am neither free nor a man, because this animal is incapable of conceiving and consequently recognizing my humanity. I am not myself free or human until or unless I recognize the freedom and humanity of all my fellowmen.
 Only in respecting their human character do I respect my own.
~ Mikhail Bakunin ~
