Iran: Of one Essence is the human race

One of the most famous Iranian poets "Saadi" once said:

"Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the Base;
One limb impacted is sufficient,
For all others to feel the Mace."

or in Persian:
بنی آدم اعضای یکدیگرند،
که در آفرینش زیک گوهرند.
چو عضوی به درد آورد روزگار،
دگر عضوها را نماند قرار

(Carved to grace the entrance to the Hall of Nations of the UN building in New York.)
