- Please use your freedom to promote ours. - Aung San Suu Kyi, Burmese Democracy Leader and Nobel Peace Laureate (Source: Human Rights Quotes)
- I hope you will judge yourselves not on your professional accomplishments alone, but also on how well you have addressed the world’s deepest inequities…on how well you treated people a world away who have nothing in common with you but your humanity. - Bill Gates

Kennedy
- You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man’s freedom. You can only be free if I am free. - Clarence Darrow

- If one of us is chained, none of us are free. It’s the very heart of humanity.
