This short phrase is perhaps the most important piece of political thought ever published.....
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Of course, that is taken from the US Declaration of Independence from England adopted on July4, 1776.
Personally, I think an asterisk should be added after the bit about all men being "created equal".
As it happens, these distinguished ex-Englishmen were being served tea and whiskey by slaves as they were brainstorming this document...But the general sentiment is nevertheless true and admirable.
