*Partial list

Dr.SK describes his experience this way: "I am part of all I have met. Life is a play". I have never in my life learned anything from any man who agreed with me. Everybody lies, but it doesn't matter because nobody listens. If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail. Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws. No law or ordinance is mightier than law of understanding. The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation. Unlike fine wines, disputes do not improve with age.
