In Their Own Words

"I believe that only a shared faith in the common destiny of mankind will provide the vision and the support necessary to the continued creation of a world order governed by law, and that a belief in world law is necessary to provide the vision and the support necessary to the establishment of a world religion."

–Harold J. Berman
