(when it is evident that the minority is the stronger)
assume its opinion... while truth again reverts to a new minority.

Each of us is of infinite value,
and each of us has the ability to make
a profound difference in the lives we touch.

on those around us by the nature of our lives

regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.

Focusing one's whole life on responsibilities,
without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.

or too menial when offered to Thee in loving service.
- Paramahansa Yogananda
