Today, this spirit of solidarity must and will empower all of us to rebuild Haiti.
Jean-Bertrand Aristide

Annie Besant
The divine life is the spirit in everything that exists, from the atom to the archangel; the grain of dust could not be were God absent from it; the loftiest seraph is but a spark from the eternal fire, which is God. Sharers in one life all form one brotherhood. The immanence of God, the solidarity of man, such are the basic truths of theosophy.
