Never go beyond your rights, and eventually they will be limitless.[Ne passez jamais vos droits, et bientôt ils seront sans bornes.]
In law a man is guilty when he violates the rights of others. In ethics he is guilty if he only thinks of doing so.
God grant that not only the Love of Liberty but a thorough Knowledge of the Rights of Man may pervade all the Nations of the Earth so that a Philosopher may set his Foot any where on its Surface and say, this is my Country.
