"O thou God of all beings, 
of all words, 
and of all times, 
We pray, 
that the little differences, 
in out clothes, 
in our inadequate languages, 
in our ridiculous customs, 
in our imperfect laws, 
in our illogical opinions, 
in our ranks and conditions, which
are so disproportionately important to us
and so meaningless to you, 
that these small variations
that distinguish those atoms that we call men, 
one from another, 
may never be signals of hatred and persecution." 

- by Voltaire, from This Flowing Toward Me
