Citizenship consists in the service of the country. As citizens of this democracy, you are the rulers and the ruled, the law-givers and the law-abiding, the beginning and the end. I believe in active citizenship, for men and women equally, as a simple matter of right and justice. I believe we will have better government in all of our countries when men and women discuss public issues together and make their decisions on the basis of their different areas of experience and their common concern for the welfare of their families and their world. There can be no daily democracy without daily citizenship. No one is born a good citizen; no nation is born a democracy.
