“The man who limits his admiration of good actions to the country in which he happens to be born … or to the nation or community of which he forms a small part, is a most pitiable object. With him to be one of a nation is more than to be one of the human family.”

Frederick Douglass, “The Significance of Emancipation in the West Indies (1857)”
