"That all men have one common nature, is a principle which will now universally prevail, and equal rights and equal duties will in a just sense, I hope, be inferred from it. But equal ranks and equal property never can be inferred from it, any more than equal understanding, agility, vigor or beauty. Equal laws are all that ever can be derived from human equality."--John Quincy Adams, letter to Thomas Brand-Hollis, June 11, 1790. From the series Great Ideas.
