One of my favorite quotes. I love the sea, the ocean, bodies of salt-water in general. You do not know peace until you stand on a deserted beach, toes in the sand, feeling as super small as you actually are in this world.
Nothing is more important than empathy for another human being's suffering. Not a career. Not wealth. Not intelligence. Certainly not status. We have to feel for one another if we're going to survive with dignity.
