“Even as a mother protects with her life her child, her only child,
so with a boundless heart, should one cherish all living beings.”

How different a place the world would be if each of us shared the same kind of limitless love we share with those closest to us, with every other living organism we share our existence with. What a profound respect for life – in all its various forms and permutations – we would discover.
