A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on country, earth, god, knowledge, liberty, love, nations, and philosophy

God grant that not only the love of liberty but a thorough knowledge of the rights of man may pervade all the nations of the earth, so that a philosopher may set his foot anywhere on its surface and say: "This is my country."

Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790)
