It is the harmony between the innermost life and the outer life,
or the life of the world and the life universal.
It is the supreme comprehension of life in time and space, the tuning of
the inner person with the great mysteries and secrets that are around us.
It is the belief in the goodness of life and the possibility for each person
to contribute goodness to it.
It is the belief in life as part of the eternal stream of time, that each of us
came from somewhere and is destined somewhere,
that without such belief there could be
no prayer, no meditation, no peace and no happiness.’
~ U Thant
