A Quote by Bertolt Brecht on teamwork, help, history, labour, and working class

"Young Alexander conquered India.
He alone?
Caesar beat the Gauls. Was there not even a cook in his army?
Philip of Spain wept as his fleet was sunk and destroyed. Were there no other tears?
Frederick the Great triumphed in the Seven Years War. Who
Triumphed with him?"

Bertolt Brecht (1898 - 1956)

A Quote by Jonathan Swift on corn, grow, politicians, mankind, help, and farmer

Whoever makes two ears of corn, or two blades of grass to grow where only one grew before, deserves better of mankind, and does more essential service to his country than the whole race of politicians put together.

Jonathan Swift (1667 - 1745)

A Quote by Shundo Aoyama on heaven, hell, suffering, compassion, help, share, sharing, and harmony

I once heard a story about a visit to heaven and hell. In both places the visitor saw many people seated at a table on which many delicious foods were laid out. In both places chopsticks over a meter long were tied to their right hands, while their left hands were tied to their chairs.

In hell, however much they stretched out their arms, the chopsticks were too long for them to get food into their mouths. They grew impatient and got their hands and chopsticks tangled with one another's. The delicacies were scattered here and there.

In heaven, on the other hand, people happily used the long chopsticks to pick out someone else's favorite food and feed it to him, and in turn they were being fed by others. They all enjoyed their meal in harmony.

A Quote by unknown on help, love, understanding, and friendship

"There were two men standing across from each other, each in desperate need of a helping hand. They reached out to each other, but their fingers barely touched. The man on the right wondered why the other man wouldn't reach just one inch more. Finally, frustrated, he reached forward and clasped the other man's hand. When the other man tried to hug him, he stepped back.
"Why didn't you reach just one more inch?" he demanded.
The other man was astonished.
"One more inch?" he asked. "To me it seemed like you were miles away."
