Help me

We cannot help anyone. The most we can do is create a condition whereby someone is enabled to help himself.

Right action relieves suffering; wrong action intensifies it.

The only devil is dependency.


Little patriot

For as long as we thrive on competition, we thrive on violence.

What did school teach me? How to fear failure. How to conform.

Education is derived from the word for “drawing out.”


Please, sir

I am self-reliant in the realization that my good does not come from someone else. It will likely come through someone else; it will not come from someone else.

In the East (a state of consciousness, of union), there is a reluctance to thank one’s benefactors.

To ask someone for something is already to have paid the highest possible price.
