“I am convinced that far more idealistic aspiration exists than is ever evident. Just as the rivers we see are much less numerous than the underground streams, so the idealism that is visible is minor compared to what men and women carry in their hearts, unreleased or scarcely released. Mankind is waiting and longing for those who can accomplish the task of untying what is knotted and bringing the underground waters to the surface.” — Albert Schweitzer
“Less is more.” — Ludwig Mies van der Rohe This is true in giving, as well as architecture. Give to more charities you like, by giving less — and sharing them with your friends. Your friends discover these charities through you & they give too. This is how giving less becomes giving more.
