“You and I want our lives to matter.  We want our lives to make a real difference – to be of genuine consequence in the world.  We know that there is no satisfaction in merely going through the motions, even if those motions make us successful or even if we have arranged to make those motions pleasant.  We want to know we have had some impact on the world.  In fact, you and I want to contribute to the quality of life.  We want to make the world work.”

Werner Erhard, Creating An Idea Whose Time Has Come
