Debts of gratitude of course and respect and fear I owe to my parents and family.

To my peers I owe whatever I may become.

To my education, work and state, I owe you effort.

To my past and future, I owe you the gift of the present.

To the world at large, I am, will and was here.

But to myself, I owe only myself.

To Good and evil, I owe participation.

Morality, love, talents, scouts, hawks, rats, friends, enemies, politics, law – I owe you emancipation.
