“One great question underlies our experience, whether we think about it or not: what is the purpose of life?. . From the moment of birth, every human being wants happiness and does not want to suffer. Neither social conditioning nor education nor ideology affects this. From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment. . . Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness.”

Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
