Quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson,

We grant no dukedoms to the few,\\
We hold like rights and shall;\\
Equal on Sunday in the pew,\\
On Monday in the mall.\\
For what avail the plough or sail,\\
Or land, or life, if freedom fail?


Ralph Waldo Emerson (more quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson or books by/about Ralph Waldo Emerson)

(1803-1882) American essayist, lecturer, and poet
