"I am not truly free if I am taking away someone else's freedom, just as surely as I am not free when my freedom is taken from me. The oppressed and the oppressor alike are robbed of their humanity."

--Nelson Mandela. The quote will be used on a bronze plaque in West Hollywood to commemorate the first legal marriages of same-sex couples there.
