I disapprove of what you say,
but I will defend to the death
your right to say it.

This quote -- often incorrectly credited to Voltaire (1694-1778) -- originates from "The Friends of Voltaire" (1906) by Evelyn Beatrice Hall, summing up Voltaire's beliefs.

In my opinion this applies to any and every aspect of life, whether political, economical, social or religious. And I think that only when every individual can truthfully say these words, the world can be a better place: open, democratic and tolerant.
Here is another citation, that does not contradict the previous, nor is it an excuse of any form:


Homo sum: humani nil a me alienum puto
I am a human being, so nothing human is strange to me

Terentius   (ca. 190 - 160 B.C.)

===> I am collecting translations of this in as many languages as possible
