"Recently I met a group of scientists in America who said that the rate
of mental illness in their country was quite high-around twelve percent

and international - the key to a happier and more successful world is
the growth of compassion. We do not need to become religious, nor do we

to develop our good human qualities."
and when you come across a hard hearted person? I like the Dali Lamas advice - move away from them!
