Mistakes are byproducts of deeds. I trust in man's innate fairness and in his natural disposition to forget and forgive, and I am seldom disappointed. I believe that we are all equal citizens, with equal rights and duties. I believe in true democracy, in strict respect for the rights of the individual, mutual tolerance, and in building a society where people from all walks of life and opinions can meet together in understanding and good fellowship. As a member of the Jewish faith, I believe in the dignity of man, because he is created in God's image. My faith teaches me to believe in the goodness of man and in his ability to live in justice and brotherhood. I believe in God as the symbol of all eternal values.
