Never give up ...

No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart.
Too much energy in your country is spent
developing the mind instead of the heart.
Be compassionate, not just to your
friends, but to everyone.
Be compassionate.
Work for peace in your heart and in the world.
Work for peace.
And again I say, never give up.
No matter what is happening
No matter what is going on around you

Never give up.

- His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama -
