  • I'm sorry

  • but I don't want to be an emperor.

  • That's not my business.

  • I don't want to rule

  • or conquer anyone.

  • I should like to help everyone if possible:

  • Jew, gentile, black man, white.

  • We all want to help one another.

  • Human beings are like that.

  • We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery

  • We don't want to hate and despise one another.

  • In this world there's room for everyone

  • and the good earth is rich,

  • and can provide for everyone.

  • The way of life can be free and beautiful

  • Machinery that gives abundant has left us in want.

  • Our knowledge has made us cynical,

  • Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost...

  • The aeroplane and radio

  • have brought us closer together.

  • The very nature of these inventions cries out

  • for the goodness in man,

  • cries out for universal brotherhood,

  • for the unity of us all.

  • Even now my voice is reaching

  • millions through the world,

  • millions of despairing men,

  • women and children,

  • victims of a system

  • that makes men torture

  • and imprison innocent people.

  • To those who can hear me I say,

  • do not despair.

  • The misery that is now upon us

  • is but the passing of greed,

  • the bitterness of men who fear

  • the way of human progress.

  • The hate of men will pass,

  • liberty will never perish.

  • Soldiers,

  • You have the love

  • of humanity in your hearts.

  • You don't hate. Only the unloved hate,

  • You the people have the power, to make

  • this life free and beautiful,

  • to make this life

  • a wonderful adventure.

  • Let us all unite!

  • Let us fight for a new world,

  • a decent world

  • that will give men a chance to work,

  • that will give youth a future

  • let us all unite!

I'm sorry
