Community of Rights
Bahujanahitāya bahujanasukhāya lokānukampāya:
For the good of the many, for the happiness of the many, out of compassion for the world.
– Gautama Buddha –
You ought not to love the individuals of your domestic circle less, but to love those who exist beyond it more. Once make the feelings of confidence and of affection universal, and the distinctions of property and power will vanish… until all mankind shall acknowledge an entire community of rights.
– Percy Bysshe Shelley –
Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.
– Oscar Wilde –
A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet
Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land
Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap
Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
