"Human life is a process of seeking and self-expression. It's seeking freedom from bondage, from want and pain. It is a quest for harmony and peace. It is a thirst and a search for happiness through which you express your innermost need.
Therefore understand the suffering of others and be ever ready to help them. Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the people you can, in every place you can and at all times, with all the zeal, strength, love and interest you can, for as long as ever you can. Humanity is your God and service to humanity is your worship."
