“How strange for us earthlings is our situation. We each come for a short visit. We don’t know what for, although sometimes we believe we can feel it. But in daily life, without deep reflection, we know: we are here for other people – firstly for those, whose smiles and well-being our own happiness completely depends on, but also for the many strangers, whose fate we are connected to by a bond of empathy.”
Albert Einstein, “How I see the world” (“Wie ich die Welt sehe”),
from “My Worldview” (“Mein Weltbild”).
