"A human being is a part of the whole that we call the universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical illusion of his conciousness. This illusion is a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for only the few people nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living beings and all of nature." — Albert Einstein

"Shall we make a new rule of life from tonight: always to be a little kinder than is necessary."

— Sir James M. Barrie

"He alone is great who turns the voice of the wind into a song made sweeter by his own loving."

— Kahlil Gibran

"Let the beauty we love be what we do."

— Rumi

"Some day, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity we shall harness the energies of love. Then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire."

— Teilhard de Chardin
