May the poor find wealth.
Those weak with sorrow find joy;
May the forlorn find new hope, constant happiness and prosperity.
May the frightened cease to be afraid and those bound be free;
May the weak find power,
And may their hearts join in friendship.
~ Shantideva's Bodhisattva Caryavatara, 8th Century
“We are caught up in an inescapable network of mutuality. . . . Strangely enough I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the way the world is made.”
–Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
