VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION
The Institute of World Culture thrives on the volunteer efforts of many individuals. One
member, Don Wilson, has been working on the front porch for three months, repairing what
could have led to a collapsed porch. The project has involved as much thought and research
as actual skilled labor. Don’s knowledge of electrical engineering and carpentry skills
provided essential support for upgrading the porch and installing much needed lighting for the
entrance path. The Institute is most appreciative.

QUOTE FOR THE YEAR

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.

—Albert Einstein
