Human Beings

It is not by wearing down into uniformity all that is individual in themselves, but by cultivating it, and calling it forth, within the limits imposed by the rights and interests of others, that human beings become a noble and beautiful object of contemplation. John Stuart Mill

Unity

Believing in the essential unity of humanity doesn't mean you have to think everyone is or should be the same. To be human is to reason, to contend, and to relate to fellow human beings. Without a diversity of views to encounter and a diversity of people to engage with, we are lessened as individuals.
