“Do unto others…’ is a good rule of thumb. I live by that. Forgiveness is probably the greatest virtue there is.
But that’s exactly what it is -­- a virtue. Not just a Christian virtue.
No one owns being good. I’m good. I just don’t believe I’ll be rewarded for it in heaven.
My reward is here and now. It’s knowing that I try to do the right thing. That I lived a good life.
And that’s where spirituality really lost its way. When it became a stick to beat people with.
‘Do this or you’ll burn in hell.’ You won’t burn in hell.
But be nice anyway.”

But living an honest life — for that you need the truth. That’s the other thing I learned that day,
that the truth, however shocking or uncomfortable, in the end leads to liberation and dignity.”
-- Ricky Gervais

"Be nice anyway." Yep.

I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.

Hugs can do great amounts of good - especially for children.

"Then you have the combined problems of egos, politics and lawyers in the U.S. There are immensely rich people in the U.S., but they all seem to have large egos. They would rather compete and bash each other than cooperate. They are constantly suing one another. And none of them wants to have anything to do with taxes. With all that happening, it is very hard to get people together to work on big projects."
