“The Almighty has not created the universe that we may have opportunities to satisfy our greed, envy and ambition.”


“Remember that there is a meaning beyond absurdity. Be sure that every little deed counts, that every word has power. Never forget that you can still do your share to redeem the world in spite of all absurdities and frustrations and disappointments.”
