Your neighbor is in front of you. You neglect him and where are you going to search for God?
God is in your heart.
God is the heart of the other person also.
So finding here through meditation and finding there through seva, that these two go together – this is the Gita teaching.Swami Ranganathananda
Equality is a slogan based on envy. It signifies in the heart of every republican: “Nobody is going to occupy a place higher than I.”
There is, in fact, a manly and lawful passion for equality which excites men to wish all to be powerful and honored. This passion tends to elevate the humble to the rank of the great; but there exists also in the human heart a depraved taste for equality, which impels the weak to attempt to lower the powerful to their own level, and reduces men to prefer equality in slavery to inequality with freedom.
—Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy In America
A person’s a person, no matter how small.
It is the mark of the cultured man that he is aware of the fact that equality is an ethical and not biological principle.
The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.
