"When I help others, I help myself. The belief that I am a small strand in this big meshwork—that is, the world—makes me humble, fair, ethical, and well meaning. My mind, however, has a habit of forgetting. Without a recent reminder, I forget my pure intentions. I get busy with ordinary wants. May you feel connected to your true family tree, which extends to the farthest corners of the world; may this connection remove moments of loneliness from your life."   - Dr. Amit Sood
