    I come from the East, most of you [here] are Westerners. If I look at you superficially, we are different, and if I put my emphasis on that level, we grow more distant. If I look on you as my own kind, as human beings like myself, with one nose, two eyes, and so forth, then automatically that distance is gone. We are the same human flesh. I want happiness; you also want happiness. From that mutual recognition, we can build respect and real trust of each other. From that can come cooperation and harmony.

    -His Holiness the Dalai Lama

    Once the worms eat up all these hard earn muscles there is a soul that remains. All you gym queens must be ready then to front your shortcomings!
