A FEW THOUGHTS
"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model which makes the existing model obsolete."- Buckminster Fuller
"Peace ... it is the basis of our existence; the essence of our identity; the cause that animates everything we do." - Kofi Annan
"A human being is part of a whole, called by us 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 delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." Albert Einstein
