And if we love all and exclude none, we will remove the social and political barriers that prevent others from realizing their fullest potential--not just in our own country, but throughout the world.

We live, breathe, and have our being within a global ecosystem. Our economic choices and our political decisions must be sustainable: We must have equal compassion for the people of future generations, even seven generations from now, so that the people who live here when we are gone will consider our teachings and practices as a model.
