“Each of us have the task of learning how to give without expecting anything in return, to help without a specific purpose and not to think individualistically, but to care about others, to stop being in a material world and be in one filled with love. We need to think that what makes us rich is not the power or the material possessions, but the true riches that are inside us, and nobody can deprive us of them.”
