I learned from my illiterate but wise mother that all rights to be deserved and preserved came from duty well done. Thus the very right to live accrues to us only when we do the duty of citizenship of the world.

Every other right can be shown to be a usurpation hardly worth fighting for. -- Mohandas GandhiMohandas Gandhi
