    • Three passions have governed my life:
      The longings for love,
      the search for knowledge,
      And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind].
    • Love brings ecstasy
      and relieves loneliness.
      In the union of love I have seen
      In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
      Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.
    • With equal passion I have sought knowledge.
      I have wished to understand the hearts of [people].
      I have wished to know why the stars shine.
    • Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens,
      But always pity brought me back to earth;
      Cries of pain reverberated in my heart
      Of children in famine, of victims tortured
      And of old people left helpless.
    • I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,
      And I too suffer.
      This has been my life;
      I found it worth living.
    • Poem by-Bertrand Russelladapted
      Music by Enya “A Day Without Rain”
