Quote: All mortals are equal…

Les mortels sont égaux; ce n’est pas la naissance,
C’est la seule vertu qui fait la différence.

All mortals are equal; it is not their birth,
But virtue itself that makes the difference.

Voltaire, Eriphile, act II, scene I (1732);
these lines were also used in Mahomet, act I, scene IV (1741)
