Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing. To forget the victims means to kill them a second time. So I couldn't prevent the first death. I surely must be capable of saving them from a second death. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. We know that every moment is a moment of grace, every hour an offering; not to share them would mean to betray them. Our lives no longer belong to us alone; they belong to all those who need us desperately.

You're only here for a short visit. So be sure to stop and smell the flowers. To explain: in the information management context the operative word is 'everything', meaning that every piece of information is relevant and is worthy of recording and analysing. This of course is perfectly fine, and is true for many situations. However in the human relationships context, 'data' is the operative word, meaning that everything whatever it is should be regarded objectively and non-judgementally.
Data isn't necessarily good or bad. Data just 'is'.

And as we let our own light shine, we subconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
