Everyone's errand

Here's something that, while said by a politician, is also very consistent with the meditative principles of both compassion and interconnectedness. I believe it is a moving statement and that we would all do well to ponder it:

You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.

-- Woodrow Wilson
