"Let us have but one end in view, the welfare of humanity; and let us put aside all selfishness in consideration of language, nationality, or religion."
John Comenius, 17th century philosopher

  1. the quote is nice but going by how things are marching, we (as in majority of people) might be far from that... for this all the country flags shldn't be differentiated!!!

  2. Even a massive earthquake in Kashmir was not enough for the governments on both sides take the extra humanitarian step towards peace. One thing became clear though. The heads of government are concerned more about the land than the people.

  3. Is welfare of humanity a selfless goal? I doubt it because man is destroying nature and wildlife for his selfishness !

  4. I think you misunderstood. The welfare of humanity when compared to the biases & prejudices he counts more on.

    In Sri Lanka: Language dominates over humanity
    In Palestine: Religion & Land dominates over humanity
    In Kashmir: Religion & Land dominates over humanity
    In Deforestation: Greed dominates over humanity
    In Extinction: Carelessness and Indifference dominates over humanity
