ii) "A is the first of all letters, similarly, Gods are first leaders of the universe"
- Thirukural's first verse; Thirukural is tamil literature, written 2,000 years ago!
iii) "The whole of my remaining.... shall be annually distributed in the form of prizes to those who, during the preceding year, shall have conferred the Greatest benefit on mankind (Living-beings)"

iv) "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men(peoples/lives) are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator(Gods) with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted"
- cofounders of USA, USA's Declaration of Independence 1776-jul-4
v) "I am absolutely convinced that no wealth in the world can 'help humanity forward', even in the hands of the most devoted worker in this cause. The example of Great and pure characters is the only thing that can produce fine ideas and noble deeds. Money only appeals to selfishness and always tempts its owners irresistibly to abuse it. Can anyone imagine Moses, Jesus, or Gandhi armed with the money-bags of Carnegie?"
- Einstein, The World As I See It (1949)
vi) "The proper function of governance is to make it easy to do good, and make it difficult to do evil"- william gladstone
vii) "Where, after all, do universal rights begin?In small places, close to home—so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person: the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerned citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world”
