He awakened to the fact that that the primary focus on profit creation in our businesses today has led to people being viewed largely as instruments to make money, as opposed to the extended human family that we all are.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
