“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
Emma Lazarus

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
Emma Lazarus

“Until we are all free, we are none of us free. ”
Emma Lazarus
