They were not created by God to be enslaved, neither were they endowed with intelligence in order to be misled, nor adorned with reason to be fooled by others. It is not pride to refuse to worship a fellow man, to enlighten the mind, and to reason everything. The arrogant one is he who wants to be worshipped, who misleads others, and who wants his will to prevail over reason and lustice."( Jose Rizal Message to the women of Malolos, Europe, Feb. 1889)
