Excerpt from speech:
We look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.
The first is freedom of speech and expression--everywhere in the world.
The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way--
everywhere in the world.
The third is freedom from want... everywhere in the world.
The fourth is freedom from fear... anywhere in the world.
--President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Message to Congress, January 6, 1941
