Dalai Lama:
For as long as space endures,
And for as long as living beings remain,

To dispel the misery of the world.
I like this quote and believes it sums up a person, a spirit, who is concerned with the quality of life of mankind!

around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers
conquered...' (And in my opinion, his vision has come true! Carl)
