Autora: Ann Rice - 'Servant of the Bones'
There is one purpose to life
and one only...
To bear witness to and understand
as much as possible of the complexity of the world -
its beauty, its mystery, its riddles...
The more you understand, the more you lok,
the greater is your enjoyment of life,
and your sense of peace.
That is all there is to it.
Everything else is fun and games...
If an activity is not grounded in 'to love',
or 'to learn', it does not have value.
Thirdly, be kind.
Always, if you have a choice, be kind.
Remember the poor, the hungry,
and the miserable...
Always remember the suffering,
and those who need.
The greatest creative power you have
whether you are an angel,
or a child,
is to help others...
the poor, the hungry, the oppressed...
To ease pain and to give joy
are your finest powers...
Kindness is a human miracle...
