Voltaire opening words
Today (November 21, 2010) is the 316th anniversary of the birth of Francois-Marie Arouet--better known by his penname, Voltaire.
Voltaire wrote, "We all look for happiness, but without knowing where to find it: like drunkards who look for their house, knowing dimly that they have one."
Three centuries later, we have learned at least a little more about how to find happiness, and how to create meaning and purpose together. For the next sixty minutes, and for the rest of our lives, may we open ourselves to the power of Life, evolving within and among us.
So may we be.
