Illustration by Peter Newell from COSMOPOLITAN
|With us no individual is born with a right
to look down upon his neighbor and hold him in contempt.
- "After Dinner Speech," published in Sketches New and Old
Man has not a single right which is the product of anything but might. Not
a single right is indestructible: a new might can at any time abolish it, hence,
man possesses not a single permanent right.
- Mark Twain's Notebook
There isn't a Parallel of Latitude but thinks it would have been the
Equator if it had had its rights.
