We declare our right on this earth to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary.

Malcolm X

Every man has a right to be wrong in his opinions. But no man has a right to be wrong in his facts.

Bernard M. Baruch

The greatest right in the world is the right to be wrong.

William Randolph

From the equality of rights springs identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own.

Carl Schurz

No man has a right to do what he pleases, except when he pleases to do right.

Charles Simmons

People don't ever seem to realize that doing what's right is no guarantee against misfortune.

William McFee

The Framers of the Bill of Rights did not purport to "create" rights. Rather, they designed the Bill of Rights to prohibit our Government from infringing rights and liberties presumed to be preexisting.

William J. Brennan, Jr.

Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

Larry Flynt

We expect them (Salvadoran officials) to work toward the elimination of human rights.

Dan Quayle

Divine right went out with the American Revolution and doesn't belong to the White House aides. What meat do they eat that makes them grow so great?

Sam Ervin

The belief in potential human virtue underlies the whole idea of the Bill of Rights; the document is a very tough guardian of that belief.

Roger Rosenblatt

The last struggle for our rights, the battle for our civilization, is entirely with ourselves.

William Wells Brown
