Quotations

No one has the right to feel hopeless, there’s too much work to do.

People say, “What is the sense of our small effort?” They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time.

We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice, envy and doubt, that peace and abundance may manifest for all.

The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us?

We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.
