"You are not in love with a border on the map. You are not in love with a specific section of dirt – dirt we share with the whole world. You are not in love with the wind that blows between your borders. You are in love with your language and your culture; you are in love with your food and your stories, your victories, your best traits and your shortcomings, things you have to face. You are all in love with each other, yourselves, when it comes to nationalism. Never forget how much you love humanity and how much you need it. Who cares what colours your flag bears, or how you pray, or to whom you pray? Belong to each other. Let’s try to be better than our past."
