The experience of love constitutes the sole significance of human life. The recognition of human rights is the acknowledgment of that significance — that all human beings share an intrinsic need to experience and express forms of self-transcendent love that impart to their lives eternal and unchanging dignity and worth.

Human rights derive from the universal need, conscious or unconscious, to respond to divine love. These rights abide equally and infinitely within each individual independent of history, culture, or politics. Human rights therefore transcend and ultimately trivialize all the hierarchies, categories, and classes people assign to themselves. Because of this universality, the exercise of human rights does not bring happiness to some people and misery to others; rather, its practice uplifts all to truth, love, purity, and beauty. Conversely, the suppression of human rights degrades the one who oppresses but cannot diminish the rights of one who is oppressed.

They are granted by men to each other in law to make the substantial transactions of life just and fair according to temporal viewpoints.

Civil rights may be conceived in noble intentions, but they invariably devolve to promote the rights of culturally favored groups and restrain the rights of disfavored groups. Therefore, the exercise of civil rights can bring satisfaction to some but suffering to others.
