What is the importance of Comenius for Europe?

Comenius quoted:

“We are all citizens of one world. To hate a man, because he was born somewhere else, because he speaks another language, because he thinks different of things, because he knows less or more than you know, what a misconception! We are all people and therefore not perfect. We all need help. Nobody is without obligations towards others.”

This proves that Comenius, already in the seventeenth century, aimed at good relations and mutual understanding between peoples and nations inside and outside Europe.
