Quote from George Mason 

"All men are created equally free and independent,
and have certain inherent rights,
of which they cannot, by any compact, deprive or divest their posterity;
among which are the enjoyment of life and liberty,
with the means of acquiring and possessing property,
and pursuing the obtaining of happiness and safety."

George Mason
(1725-1792), drafted the Virgina Declaration of Rights, ally of James Madison and George Washington
