"I began to see that nothing I can do will bring me happiness unless it includes happiness for others. Whenever I suffer, it's really because I have discounted the other. The flip side of that is being genuinely concerned for the other. When this happens, we have a true spontaneous moment of satisfaction, happiness, and joy."-- Richard Gere
"If we think of our life as an effort to fly always just a little bit higher and reach a goal that's just a little bit beyond our reach, we are faced with a question: How high can any of us go by ourselves?"-- Dr. Jane Goodall
"I shared a conviction with my husband that, even in a conflict region such as ours, when human needs and aspirations are prioritized in a society, that society is better able to resist and topple tyrants and extremists. That when people have hope and opportunity, they will sacrifice and invest in a stable and peaceful future for their families. And when we invest in young people, miracles can happen."-- Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
