José Saramago-10 Years Ago

--“Let us think that no human rights will exist without symmetry of the duties that correspond to them. It is not to be expected that governments in the next 50 years will do it. Let us common citizens therefore speak up. With the same vehemence as when we demanded our rights, let us demand responsibility over our duties. Perhaps the world could turn a little better.”
-- José Saramago's speech at the Nobel Banquet, December 10, 1998.
