Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

These are a part of Me

From The Rainbow by Pearl S. Buck

 Steady in the state of fullness which shines when all desires are given up and peaceful in the state of freedom in life, act playfully in the world!

Inwardly free from all desires, dispassionate and detached, but outwardly active in all directions, act playfully in the world!

Free from egoism, but with mind detached as in sleep, pure like the sky, ever untainted, act playfully in the world!

Conducting yourself nobly with kindly tenderness,
Outwardly conforming to conventions but inwardly renouncing all,
act playfully in the world!

Quite unattached at heart, but for all appearance acting with attachment, inwardly cool, but outwardly full of fervour act playfully in the world!
