- “It does not matter how much we have, as we cannot do much to change what we have. But we can certainly change the way we use what we have, as what really matters is what we do with what we have. A chess pawn, if used well, will become a Queen.” -T.T. Rangarajan.
- “There must be a reason why some people can live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.” – Mother Theresa. (See “Equality for All or All are Equal”)
