Love For Humanity Shortcut.Lnk

  1. 1. Presentation<br />created <br />January 19, 2010<br />by<br />Tamra Blanchard<br />
  2. 2. Three passions have governed my life: <br />The longings for love,<br />the search for knowledge, <br />And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind]. <br />
  3. 3. Love brings ecstasy <br />and relieves loneliness.<br />In the union of love I have seen <br />In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision <br />Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined. <br />
  4. 4. With equal passion I have sought knowledge. <br />I have wished to understand the hearts of [people]. <br />I have wished to know why the stars shine. <br />
  5. 5. Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens, <br />But always pity brought me back to earth; <br />Cries of pain reverberated in my heart <br />Of children in famine, of victims tortured <br />And of old people left helpless.<br />
  6. 6. I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,<br />And I too suffer.<br />This has been my life; <br />I found it worth living.<br />
