Respect of the Rights of All

"The spirit of liberty is not merely,
as multitudes imagine,
a jealousy of our own particular rights,
but a respect for the rights of others,
and an unwillingness that any man,
whether high or low,
should be wronged and trampled under foot."

-- William Ellery Channing (1780-1842)
