Thought for the Day, #60

Will Rogers
At this time, when there is so much talk that gay rights are human rights, I thought it was timely to mention Will Rogers, an early-twenthieth century "American cowboy [who, ironically, was a Cherokee Indian], vaudeville performer, humorist, social commentator and motion picture actor," and this quote attributed to him, which remains true, among others, for gay and lesbian people today:  

We will never have true civilization until we have learned to recognize the rights of others.
