There is not a liberal America and a conservative America - there is the United States of America. There is not a black America and a white America and latino America and asian America - there's the United States of America.
Now, as a nation, we don't promise equal outcomes, but we were founded on the idea everybody should have an equal opportunity to succeed. No matter who you are, what you look like, where you come from, you can make it. That's an essential promise of America. Where you start should not determine where you end up.
“Whatever is my right as a man is also the right of another; and it becomes my duty to guarantee as well as to possess.”
The earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it.
Men are equal it is not birth but virtue that makes the difference.
All the people like us are we, and everyone else is They.
The length of a man's outspread arms is equal to his height.
The year was 2081, and everyone was finally equal.
If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.
Where there is equality there can be sanity.
No advance in wealth, no softening of manners, no reform or revolution has ever brought human equality a millimeter nearer.
