"I have always strenuously supported
the right of every man to his own opinion,
however different that opinion might be to mine.
He who denies another this right makes
a slave of himself to his present opinion,
because he precludes himself the right of changing it."
by:
Thomas Paine
(1737-1809) US Founding father, pamphleteer, author
