A Quote from "Life Itself" by Roger Ebert

Yes, I'm a fan of Roger Ebert. I'll probably have to explain that a little later. Anyway, reading one of his articles, I noticed one of the comments which happen to quote a bit from his book "Life Itself". I just found the thought so nice. And never realize that this is actually spot on. And if only humanity has a little more sense of responsibility of each other's accords, that world peace we've been fantasizing all along wouldn't be too far-fetched. So here's the quote:

"I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all the crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try."
