"If you must be selfish, then be wise and not narrow-minded in your selfishness. The key point lies in the sense of universal responsibility. That is the real source of strength, the real source of happiness. If we exploit everything available, such as trees, water and minerals, and if we don´t plan for our next generation, for the future, then we´re at fault, aren´t we? However, if we have a genuine sense of universal responsibility as our central motivation, then our relations with the environment, and with all our neighbours, will be well balanced."

- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

That second quote is one of my life mantras. I know many people who do a lot of charity work abroad and work with international NGOs. Yet, just down the road from their house there is a sink estate craving for the same attention. We cannot be somebody else's paths if we're not ours first.

Many thanks.

Greetings from London.
