Truer words were never spoken...

  • All [people] have infinite, internal, eternal, and unconditional worth as persons.
  • All have equal worth as people. Worth is not comparative or competitive. Although you might be better at sports, academics, or business, and I might be better in social skills, we both have equal worth as human beings.
  • Externals neither add to nor diminish worth. Externals include things like money, looks, performance, and achievements. These only increase one’s market or social worth. Worth as a person, however, is infinite and unchanging.
  • Worth is stable and never in jeopardy (even if someone rejects you.)
  • Worth doesn’t have to be earned or proved. It already exists.

The sanskrit letter 'om'. As in "Om mani padme hum".
