“ Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival. ”

One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, and compassion
We need to create a society where our values are more spread out to all aspects of life. Music, art, love, care, all these things are as important as economics.
A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.
Freedom is the only worthy goal in life. It is won by disregarding things that lie beyond our control.
I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle.
