There is nobody in this country who got rich on their own. Nobody. You built a factory out there - good for you. But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory... Now look. You built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea - God bless! Keep a hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."
- Elizabeth Warren

seize the opportunity to sharpen those qualities
even more sharply by applying your focused effort.

and make for yourself that lead you to certain joy
in the midst of your challenges.

and will be able to respond. Remember...
There are no small acts of kindness.
Every compassionate act makes large the world.

all the fountains of joy in the world.
