Someone may be rich and powerful, but without friends they trust they’ll never be happy. Someone else may be poor, but surrounded by friends they trust they’ll always be happy. Showing concern for others is the best way to make friends and fulfil our own interests. We are social animals; we need to be warm-hearted and to take care of others. And to do that we need to remember what we have in common as human beings.
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
