"And so to all other peoples and the small village...Know that America is a friend...we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds" - President Barack Obama, Inaugural speech

"My #1 commitment is promoting human value, to create a better world, a more compassionate, peaceful world…The real source of peace comes not from technology or from the economy, but from inner peace, which comes through a more compassionate heart…on that level we are all the same as the 6 billion human beings in the world, we have that in common, we all share that same interest & responsibility" - Dalai Lama, meeting with President Barack Obama
