One of the secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.

To be happy, we must consider the happiness of another.

Whoever is happy will make others happy too.

One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion.

In the happiness of others I seek my own.

My happiness is to increase other people's. To be happy myself I need the happiness of all.
