All people, regardless of who they are, are born unenslaved (a descriptive synonym since there is no concept of "freedom"), their worthiness (dignity) and rightfulness (rights) are equal to any other person. They were given wisdom (reason) and conscience, in the spirit of brotherhood, should look upon one another accordingly.

Translation by Patrick Davis


All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
