Each of us is of infinite value,
and each of us has the ability to make
a profound difference in the lives we touch.

on those around us by the nature of our lives

or how important we believe we are.

regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.
Self importance - ego - is not a path to happiness.
Focusing one's whole life on responsibilities,
without taking time for self-renewal and play,
abandons the joy and the true value of life.

rather than, "Never missed a day at the office."
