"If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. This is the most basic kind of peace work."
I believe this principle should be the foundation for everything we do. Helping people, influencing the world, and creating peace does not require a great sacrifice or grand undertaking. We can all do our part and make a difference in someone's life simply by being present and showing them a smile. It may be the only genuine contact or sincere gesture they receive all day. And, in the end, it could be the one thing that saves their life. Sometimes it's the smallest acts that are the most powerful.
